Would you like to be happier?

Do you consider yourself a pessimist? How would you like to change the image of your world crashing down around you into a one of high expectations and be happier?

It’s easy to fall under the spell of negative thinking but there are some easy things you can do to be happier and more optimistic. Using the following techniques you can leave that negative mindset of yours behind in two weeks or less.

1. Cultivate an Attitude of Gratitude

Start looking for the good things that happen in your life. Count your blessings.

Write down some of the things you have to be grateful for, blessings you’ve received in your lifetime. Write down all your blessings, big and small.

• Did you wake up this morning? Isn’t the gift of a new day a reason to be grateful?  While you may not enjoy the circumstances you’re in, the new day offers you a chance to make something new of your circumstances.

• What has come into your life that you have to be grateful for? Do you have the gift of good health? Do you have the gift of special friends? Do you have the gift of a job that helps you make a living?

• Are there successes you’ve achieved? Did you graduate from high school, get a college degree or successfully run a marathon?

• Reflecting on your past positive experiences will almost instantly make you feel happier.

2. Write a Positive Commercial About you

In the book, “The Magic of Thinking Big”, David Schwartz suggests writing a commercial to sell you on yourself and then recite it to yourself in the mirror every morning. This commercial can help you cast off your feelings of self-doubt and inadequacy and replace them with positive feelings about yourself.

• To write your commercial first take a few moments to consider your strengths. What things do you do well? How have they helped you in the past?

• Once you’ve written your commercial, stand in front of your mirror and recite it out loud. Tell yourself all the good things you’ve found about you.

3. Be a Good Finder

The late great Zig Ziglar often said that life is better when you are a good finder.

Search for the good in all people and in all situations. No matter what’s going on when you look for the bright spot you’ll find it. There’s something good in every one of life’s situations.

• If something makes you feel sad, ask yourself, “What is good about this?” If you come up with the answer “nothing” then ask yourself, “What could be good about this?”

• If you didn’t do well, thinking you’ve failed ask yourself, “What did I learn from this?” it may be that you’ve just learned the last thing needed to put together your plan for success.

4. Accept Life’s Outcomes

When things happen, sometimes people say, “That’s not fair.” They’re right. In order to be happier you need to accept the fact that life’s not fair.

Life may not go your way sometimes, that’s just the way life is. Accept the journey, learn from your path and move on.

• If life’s not going your way, you can choose to celebrate the positive outcomes of others. This will direct your subconscious to a feeling of gratefulness which will attract more of life’s blessings.  Use other people’s successes as an opportunity to make yourself happier.

5. Every Day is a New Day

Even though today may have been full of negative experiences, remember as the sun rises tomorrow it will bring the opportunity for new experiences with it. If you are given a new day you are given a new opportunity to succeed.
