Do you find yourself merely surviving or is your focus on thriving? People who thrive are focused on how they can reinvent themselves, and be a success, despite the negativity and adversity that surrounds them.
Everyone goes through rough times, and there are plenty of things that are entirely out of your control. You can’t control the state of the national debt or the economy, you can’t control the weather or what other people do and say.
There is something that you do control, though, and that is how you think, how you act, and how you respond to those things that are out of your control.
Positive thinking doesn’t mean that you’re being unrealistic, nor does it mean that you’re sitting on the fence, waiting for goodness to wash over you.
Thinking is just the first step, what following thinking is action. It’s vital to understand that the world is full of challenges, and you can learn from that and create a plan to stop surviving, and start living.
Now, ask yourself this: who are you? Have you just been surviving, or have you been living and thriving? Survivors view the world as uncertain and unfavorable, they’re cautious and think narrowly.
Livers and thrivers, though, think positively, they find ways to solve their problems, and act with courage and strength. They think outside the box and believe that every goal is achievable. They take action and work hard to achieve those goals. They never give up.
