How many times are you told by elders, friends and mentors to develop a positive attitude?
Everyone instructs to do it, but only a few have directions on how to do it?
What’s your attitude
An attitude is a mindset developed over time, through experiences of resilience and observations about people and things.
It’s a predisposition to respond in a certain way, to both the known and unknown.
Simply, your attitude is your perspective towards life proceedings.
It speaks a lot about you.
Expressions ( often called as body language) is the indicator of your attitude towards people.
That doesn’t mean you should start dancing to them.
Allow the real inside to roll your reel outside.
And that’s why we need a positive attitude, to respond better in the now, so we unlock our desires, and dive into the flow of achieving them.
What’s Positive Attitude?
Positive attitude is Integrity — honesty towards people and commitment to oneself.
The headspace where you are optimistic yet surrender to the present beyond our control.
All to unleash vibes of nothing to lose and experiences to gain, the approach that sets your spirit free to express your true self and unlock your higher possibilities.
Positive attitude is a luxury you can afford by piercing comfort.
It fosters with practice.
Positive attitude is a mind zone where:
people’s thinking of you doesn’t matter to you.
you trust instincts more than your compulsive thoughts.
you believe everything will be ok no matter how hard it is right now.
good for you includes good for people.
there is self respect, no ego.
success is just moving.
lesson is the name of a failure.
you believe no feeling is permanent, neither success nor failure, neither happiness nor sadness.
beginning means almost done
you embrace negativity and bliss out to positivity.
mind welcomes fear and accepts shortfalls gracefully
you are perseverant until you reach your goal.
The headspace where your flowing presence entices everyone in the room is a positive attitude.

15 mindsets to develop a positive attitude
Boils to Discipline when you Lack Motivation in Work
Show up to work no matter how low you feel.
Just showing up is half the job done.
Begin your session with a 15 min exercise where you let your body be still regardless of tantrums of the monkey mind (not too much to ask for).
Sitting quietly, not doing any activity.
It clears distractions to build concentration, the key to positive attitude.
Hang on to Lows, Be Humble in Highs
Building positive attitude is a process, not an overnight magic.
You will hit the rock bottom at different levels in your journey, the graveness where you feel you cannot get up.
Experience darkness consciously to pull curtains towards light.
So to glow in success than to radiate destructive gleam to people’s eyes.
Offer Love than to Ask for It
Like self love turns on compassion, feeling compassion inspires self love.
I don’t think one develops a positive attitude sans love.
Let us acknowledge all are creations of love and become its messengers in our distinct ways.
Just make sure the intentions behind actions are pure.
Value the Healing Power of Gratitude
Appreciate what you have and feel content about it.
Easy as it sounds?
If you are blessed with food, clothing, and shelter, you have a lot to thank for.
Practicing gratitude is valuable to build a positive attitude.
Easy to exercise anywhere, anytime.
Stop Competing with People to Learn from their Experiences
Comparison and Competition with others never let you listen to their experiences and learn from them.
It’s because there’s jealousy, the most destructive human emotion (according to me).
And if you only learn from personal experiences, you might taste cow dung someday to believe it.
What I’m saying is: Everyone offers something to learn if you attend them without prejudice.
Sink into Minds that Ego kills Originality
Ego creates labels and identifications, which makes you supremo in your highs and a puppet in your lows.
That’s not the way to operate.
Also, you cannot kill ego forever.
Just be aware of it whenever it strikes to create space for it to leave.
Ego is the foe of Positive attitude.
Stop Playing the Judgment Game
Judgment is an extension of your distorted ego.
I know your mind loves it but let’s rethink:
Can anyone gain anything judging people?
Bring your awareness back to breaths whenever you catch your thoughts judging people.
People’s judgments are my unconscious self-judgments talking !!
Take No Shit where you are Right
Courage, I believe, is the foundation of a strong positive attitude.
It allows you to sail on instincts where you step forward to put your perspective candidly instead of waiting for someone to ask your opinion.
It transforms you into a fearless soul where you freely decide a yes or a no?
It’s a technique demanding everyday practice.
It illuminates hindsight where your retrospections are lessons, not the past causing anxiety.
You feel the presence of now deeper and discover expressions that declutter obscurity.
Embrace Negative Emotions
Life is about peaks and valleys where ups and down are in balance.
Emotions are universally human, even the negative ones.
Feel them consciously so that your next encounter with them is no mystery.
It clears your vision by injecting sanity into your thought process.

Practice Lifestyle where Happiness is a Byproduct
Don’t chase or wish to pursue happiness.
Trust yourself and concentrate on enhancing the quality of life.
Anything you do, do it joyfully to create a strong footing to accept the enduring challenges.
Those little steps turn into a giant leap, releasing high doses of positive energy.
Be Mindful of People to Invest your Energy
We find many people in different spheres who are cynical faultfinders.
Beware of the energy suckers.
It’s sad that we call many of them our friends.
Personally speaking, where one should not judge people, we should evaluate them to determine compatibility in self-growth.
Measure Progress from Deadline’s point of view
Say a weekly goal where you divide your daily work into small chewable targets.
Having a deadline fuel the negative motivation where you could be slow but you never lose track.
The afterthoughts of an unfinished task drive you to keep moving.
Stop Booing Your Failures
Life is an experience over the logical concepts of success and failure.
Failures, they call it the stepping stone for a reason.
What you call as failures are vital learning curves only if you are aware and patient enough to connect the dots.
It’s an elusive mask of realization covering lifeless faces of failures.
Take Work breaks and Enjoy Leisure Time
Stress is one major inroad in building a positive attitude.
Remember all work and no play makes jack a dull boy?
Just like the warmup, there must be cool down after work flows.
It’s imperative or in the worst cases, it may lead to burnout.
Take work breaks where you allow your feelings to lead, and give mind the deserving rest, the needed recovery time.
Final Positive Words:
Flowing with positive attitude is a feeling of riding high on love and respect for everyone including yourself.
Neither your ego is rude nor your feelings are proud.
The aspiration to your dreams ain’t coming easy and the success planet you wish for yourself, it’s not a walk in the park either.
That’s where you need to build a positive attitude where no matter how low you feel or slow you move, perpetual self-love doesn’t let you feel lost in failures, also restricts you from boasting about achievements.
They say attitude is everything and I can’t agree more.
