A positive mindset is an attitude that focuses on the good in a bad situation An emotional attitude that always sees the bright side of life, in any kind of situation.
According to Courtney [email protected],
“[P]ositive thinking actually means approaching life’s challenges with a positive outlook.
It does not necessarily mean avoiding or ignoring the bad things; instead, it involves making the most of the potentially bad situations, trying to see the best in other people, and viewing yourself and your abilities in a positive light.”-Kendra Cherry
Each day is filled with a lot of bad news.The ability to look beyond these bad news and still be optimistic is what is termed a positive mindset.
To be successful in this process is to first develop a positive mindset.

HOW CAN I DEVELOP A POSITIVE MINDSET
Having a generally negative inclination towards life, makes your mind seek out and amplify negative things around you.According to greatperformersacademy.com,
“When you have spoken positively about your day, you end up appreciating the small things and finding a reason or two to propel yourself past the day”.
For instance, never say “I am broke .Rather say ” I am overcoming a cash flow problem”.Learn to believe and to expect good things to happen to you
If you ask the average person, “Do you want to be successful?Do you want to excel in life?The average answer will be YES!
But wanting to be successful is different from expecting to be successful.
Expectations are expressed by your attitude.Not by your speech.In order words, developing a positive mindset is not an event ,rather an attitude.
It is the willingness to do the things today,that others wont do.In order to get the things tomorrow that people dont have.
Such positive attitude examples include:
Seeing failures as practice shot
faithfulness to purpose
Not giving room to distractions
Setting goals and keeping them.
Another good positive thinking technique is what is called autosuggestion.
This is one of the best ways that helps you to reprogram your subconcious mind.
If your mind is negative,filled with fear,doubt and worry,
You will live in a negative energy all the time.
This does not allow you to see opportunities even when they are right in your face.
Autosuggestion is to verbally say positive things about yourself and your situations.
Continually repeating this daily can change your negative mindset to positive .
HOW TO CHANGE FROM A NEGATIVE TO POSITIVE MINDSET.
Changing from a negative mindset to a positive mindset is easy.It takes 21 to 30 days to change the way you think.
Start saying to yourself every morning and night.
“I am happy rich and successful.All thoughts that cause worry and anxiety will not be allowed.Worry is a useless habit.I choose to be calm,kind,and peaceful”
Repeat that many times before going to bed and when you wake in the morning.
Your old thoughts will come and bombard you.But dont worry ,slowly your old thoughts will give way to the new.
If you want to be successful, you should think and speak of success all the time.
