YOUR POSITIVITY IS NOT MINE, BUT I CAN BORROW IT

Do you think that a positive mindset is a bit overhyped?

What I mean by that is it’s not even possible to feel up high all the time. Just try it and let me know if you find the working formula.

Everybody wants to feel good, that’s true, but these days marketing is sending a different message on that topic. Actually, they are doing a good job because they just want to catch your eyes on Happy, just think that you can be happy, just do this to be happy, step by step happy guide… Oh, come on!

The trick is to get real. To see where you’re at and start from there. Do what you need to to to move on in the best light. Yes, putting yourself in a better mood will help you with a task, but still, you need to learn to accept the circumstances you’re in and take action from there building yourself up. Being aware, committing to the process, and sustaining in it is a positive mindset. 

If you learn to operate just from the state of happiness, what happens when the level of that feeling drops? You shut down. The same thing happens with motivation, once you don’t feel motivated to go to class – boom, you’re out! Does that get you anywhere? Does that attitude serve you? No, of course not. When it comes to motivation, you need to build discipline, so when the level of motivation drops you’re good to go anyway. 

Give yourself permission to feel those negative (or less happy) feelings. You’re allowed to feel angry, sad, overwhelmed, lost, frustrated, shy… of course. But don’t let be caught in that down circle for a long time because it’ll wrap you up and send you in the opposite way from the one you should be walking. Notice the feeling, let it pass through, and move on. That’s a positive mindset.

Here’s what I think are the main keys to a positive mindset;

Awareness
Growth

Work on these two and trust me, you’ll be fine because no extra formula is needed, you’ll always know what steps you should take because there’s no right or wrong, it’s a win-win situation, you either win or learn a lesson. But that’s exactly what you need.

This was just a quick reminder (and I needed to let it out :)) because I see so many creative people struggling with their biz because of this topic. They burn out so fast and give up everything they’ve accomplished so far. Because the excitement dropped. And all the wealth coaches are like ‘Just be happy and everything will turn out just fine’. Nope. Just set realistic goals and work towards them, by enjoying the process. You wouldn’t set yourself for something you won’t be enjoying, right? Maybe not all the fields of your idea would give you the high state energy, but it wouldn’t be that hard either. 

Here are some positive and realistic quotes you might wanna remember on your way towards your goals πŸ™‚

  • An expert was once a beginner.
  • Don’t be afraid to be different, be afraid to never try.
  • Focus on what you can control and make peace with what you can’t.
  • Be stronger than your excuses.
  • It’s ok to not know, it’s not ok to not learn.

Or the powerful questions you wanna ask yourself when a challenging situation comes up:

  • Is this worth getting upset over?
  • What’s the lesson here?
  • How does this serve me?
  • Am I overreacting or overthinking?
  • Can I control this?
  • What else can I do to overcome the issue?

These are the things I learned from my process and it didn’t look as easy as reading it here, but that’s why it’s important to walk the walk not just talk the talk. That way you lock in the lessons and move to the next level.

If you have favorite quotes on your own, drop them in the comments, Let’s spread the wisdom!

    Great post. I’m constantly surrounded by overly positive people who watch motivational videos most of the time. Been struggling with my biz and was glad when I read your post. Realistic goals, take one step at a time and discipline. Work when the feeling isn’t all there. Thank you for the post.

    I agree with you 100%! I tried those: daily motivation, happiness hacks, positivity. It worked for me for while, but when the opposite side hits, it hit me hard. Until I learned acceptance – accepting the negative feeling you are having and the difficulty you are experiencing. It helped me grow and get back up stronger! Thanks for sharing! ❀

      Sure, it’s important to acknowledge the feeling and work from there. We usually get out of it faster when we face it πŸ˜‰

        You will understand one day. This is an unavoidable truth about positivism. What makes a person “happy” can only exist if they have known “unhappy”. Too much focus on happiness will always lead to discontent. Maybe the world doesn’t want to know what a rambling stranger thinks- It is all relevant to opinion either way.

    1. Hey Jami, I will agree here with you that giant companies hold some keys, of course. But there’s no quick wealth either…
