What’s Wrong with Being a Pollyanna?

Nothing! There is an automatic assumption that negative is realistic and positive is unrealistic. That is pure madness. It is reported that more than 90% of what we worry about never happens. That means that our negative worries have less than a 10% chance of being correct. If this is so, isn't being positive more realistic than being negative?

If you think about it, the important issue is not which is more realistic, but rather, "Why be miserable when you can be happy?" If being a Pollyanna creates a happier world for you and those around you, why hesitate for one more moment?

Nothing is realistic or unrealistic-there is only what we think about any given situation. We create our own reality. What does all this tell you? STOP FEEDING YOURSELF NEGATIVE THOUGHTS. Negative thoughts take away your power.... and thus make you more paralyzed from your fear.

So, why don't people think more positively? People don't understand what being a positive thinker requires. It takes a special commitment and requires a great deal of practice. And then once you get it all down perfectly, a maintenance program is a must. If you don't practice, you lose the skill. This is the point most people don't seem to understand.
(This excerpt is from: "Feel the fear and do it anyway", by Susan Jeffers, PHD.  It’s a very good read)

So how do you stay positive? Here are some of my suggestions.

1.    Hang around positive people

2.    Surround yourself with what astatically makes you feel good like candles, music, fresh air etc.

3.    Read books that inspire you to take action or uplift your spirit

4.    Listen to uplifting CD’s

5.    Watch TV shows that will keep or put you in a good mood

6.    Do the activity that puts you in a good mood like biking, walking, playing with your children etc.

7.    If there is a place that makes you feel good go there often (ocean, nature park, church)

These are just a few suggestions. Notice I didn’t mention what you shouldn’t do but to focus on what you should do. Go for it. What have you got to lose?
