Life without challenges is like food without spices. One must have positive outlook in order to succeed in life and for that we should first change our perspective to be more positive and feel happier. Yes, you guessed it right, this article is all about achieving “positive perspective” the most important factor in every indivisuals life. One thing that I can say from my personal life experience is don’t let negative thoughts consume your mind, no matter how you are feeling or why your thoughts are more geared towrads negative outlook and consequences, try and think about something that can make you feel positive and focus more on its positive outcome rather than being scared of the negative ones. Being a student itself I can assure you that channeling all of your energy into one failure can lead you now here except having a major emotional and mental breakdown.
Now, by the word “positive” here I don’t specifically refer to the smiling faces and being cheerful all the time , however it is more about having a different perspective of life and the tendency to focus on all that is good in life. The flow and experience of positive emotions in your body makes you believe in more possibilities in your life.Someone has rightly said “ what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger. So when pain befalls us, all we can do is to try harder to turn it into positive experience and learn a lesson in order to move on with a better and stronger version of ourself. You cannot change what has happened but one thing you can do for sure is to use that lesson to create a confident new story, its like walking in the same pavement everyday and tripping onthe same spot and getting frustated, you can either change your side walk or eventually accept the uneven pavement. The choice is yours!
What I believe is that our past should not be an excuse to live bitter. In order to avoid these negativity, you must listen to your intuition and most importantly you must not be afraid of mistakes, because mistakes at trivial level can lead to large scale failures which will ultimately lead us to more negativity and low self confidence. What according to me will help is when we get to immerse in a culture where failure is celebrated for the lessons it contains, it becomes simple and less frightening for people to feel better prepared to take on real world challenges. Just remember thatyou are not a failure just because you had a setback. We often her about people’s success but we are unaware of the setbacks that led them to those milestones. The reality and the useful way to approach setback is more like this quote by Michael Jordan:
“ I have missed more than 9000 shots in my career, missed 900 games, 26 times I have trusted to take the game winning shots and missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.”
So , its like you have a choice to in the way you perceive whatever is going on, and you also have the power to choose whether you think the glass is half full or half empty. Change your perspective towards life and see the change you bring in yourself, make a proper stratergy to overcome your weakness and turn it to your strength.
