Hey guys! Welcome back. I like to consider myself a pretty positive person for the most part. However, when things don’t go my way or get out of hand, I struggle to stay positive. So I wanted to share with you some questions to ask yourself when you are feeling down or you are stuck in a tough spot. These are questions I ask myself that help me be more positive, or at least try to.
Is it something you can control?
If it’s not something you can control, then worrying about it won’t help. It’s best to remember that you can’t control everything and that the only thing you can really do is what you can. You can only worry about yourself and what you are doing. Everything else is beyond your grasp.
Is it something you can fix?
If it is something that you can fix, by all means do it. That’s the best way to stay positive. If there is a solution, try to implement it. If not, then you know you can move on. Life will go on and it will work out the way it’s meant to. But if there is no way for you to fix it, there’s no point in trying.
Will it still be an issue in five years?
Is this a problem or situation that will still be affecting you in five years? If it’s not, then just let it go. It’s not going to matter and you will most likely forget about it in good time. However, if this is something that will still be an issue and will affect you, then it’s time to try to figure out what to do.
Can you talk to someone?
Is there someone you can talk to about what you are going through or what you are struggling with? Find out who the best person is to go to and reach out to them. Talking things through with someone can really help a lot. Even if they can’t provide answers, just having someone there to listen is a big help sometimes.
Is there a glass half full to the situation?
Is there any positivity to the situation at all? Is there any good that can come out of this? If there is, you have your silver lining. You can start being positive about that. Positivity doesn’t just come when there is nothing wrong. It can also come when something is going wrong, but you seek out the good.
Those are the questions I ask myself when things aren’t going great for me. What do you do to stay positive? Let us know in the comments. Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this.
