Easier said than done, right? Absolutely. But getting and staying positive is all about paying attention. What? Were you expecting something else? It really is that simple.
But the question now becomes this: What should I pay attention to? The pitfalls. I promise I will explain.
It's like when you drive a car. What are the things that you look out for?
Animals and kids?
Debris in the road?
All of the above?
The same goes for getting and staying positive. When you work on getting positive, it certainly is a struggle, isn't it? The bad habits are never far from the surface. But it's when you move past that initial bad habit behavior, it does get easier. But if you don't pay attention, you can have a minor collision with some not-so-good days.
So what do you need to look out for when trying to keep that positive outlook on life? The roadblocks of life. They include (but are not limited to)
3. Being overly emotional
9. Unrealistic expectations
