    Default Finding ways to stay positive

    How do you find ways to stay motivated and positive? Is it easy for you or difficult?

    I would say mostly pretty easy for me. I know one thing is spending too much time around very negative people will bring you down.

    I on a consistant basis I look at a peice of paper with positive affirmations at work and at home actually. I find it difficult on some days. @gromit yes, negative people make it way harder after being exposed to them for too long.

    I just keep in mind that if I'm about to get mad at someone or am in the middle of being mad I just remind myself that whomever it is is just doing or being thier best at that given moment. This helps a lot actually.

    It's hard. I don't necessarily find ways to stay positive. It's more like I take myself in the corner and say, "Look, I know things suck right now. I know it's bad and you feel horrible. But you still have to do this and that. You've got a job to do. Just do it and we'll worry about how you feel about it later."

    I'll admit that doing it this way is very energy draining but not sure how else to handle it. It gets things done, too, no matter how I may be feeling.

    For me, it is difficult sometimes, and easier sometime. To stay motivated, I generally envision the positive outcomes of my goals - what success will feel like, what I'll gain from it. I change the way I look at things. I write positive affirmations, talking to people sometimes helps. That sort of thing.

    In uncertain situations, I ask myself--"what's the worst that can happen?" It's usually not as bad as I think. That goes a long way in staying positive.

    I do this too but I make sure not to focus on the worst case scenario too long. It's sort of like juxtaposing situations.

    Excercise and will power.

    The former helps the body feel good and the latter helps the mind develop new perspectives and avenues of thought.
