James Allen said, “Think good thoughts, and they will quietly become actualized in your outward life in the form of good conditions.” To stay positive in life, you have to stay away from negative things. You have to maintain a positive state of mind.

Everything starts in the mind. Don’t allow negative things into your mind. Don’t let negative people get access to your mind. Keep your mind sacred. Keep it holy. It is your temple. If you allow negative thoughts, feelings, emotions, associations to mess you up, you are the one who is going to suffer the disharmony within you.

It is hard to always stay positive. But with these six smart ways, you can stay positive in your life.

Focus on the bright side of things.

There are lots of negative things happening around us, but we can choose what we focus on. If you focus on negative things, you will be attracted to negative things. Focus on positive things, move with positive people, do and think about positive things every day.

Be grateful.

A lot of people are not happy because they think about what they don’t have, what is wrong with them, what is not working, what is broken. No, don’t do that. It is a complete waste of your time. Instead, focus all your energy on what is working for you. Appreciate what you have, no matter what. Don’t complain, but celebrate.

Do not doubt yourself.

You cannot stay positive in life if all you do is to continually tear yourself down. To stay positive in life, be positive about everything you do. If you doubt yourself, you have planted the seeds of fear, of doubt, of unhappiness, of sadness, of failure in your mind. No matter what, don’t doubt yourself. Believe in yourself. People will believe in you, too.

Hold the thought of superiority in your mind.

If you want to stay positive in life, let your mind be a positive temple. You cannot keep inferior thoughts in your mind and expect to live a positive life. That is not how life works. Orison Sweat Marden said, “If you want to reach nobility, you can never do it by holding the thought of inferiority- the thought that you are not as good as other people; that you are not as able; that you can’t do this; that you can’t do that.” There is nothing you cannot do if you want it badly. You can do anything if you believe in yourself, and if you know exactly what you want.

Bring out the best in you.

Bring out the best in you. You have it. Orison Sweat Marden said, “Nothing will compensate you for stifling the best thing in you. Bring it out at any sacrifice.” Don’t be scared to express who you really are. Don’t be scared to show people what you can do, and cannot do. Don’t be timid. Be brave. Life belongs to the brave, not to the timid. When you show your braveness, the world will embrace you, and success will come to you.

Help others.

We are more connected than you think. The world need your help. People need your help. They need your talents, your time, yourself. You can’t change the world alone, but you can help change one person. Start today. According to Dr. Travis Bradberry, “Helping other people gives you a surge of oxytocin, serotonin, and dopamine, all of which create good feelings.” Helping other people brings good feelings, which is good for your health and well-being.

Stay positive!
