How to build a positive attitude

Nishant Kumar

Positive attitude keeps us in positive state of mind. It is easier to dust off past failures and get back to the present with such an attitude.

A person with negative attitude often plays blame game and never accepts responsibilities. This restricts life and success at work will be limited too. Fewer friends, lesser enjoyment and limited relationships become the part of life of a person with such a fatalistic and erratic attitude.

Good news is that one can cultivate a few traits to develop a positive attitude.

Traits to build a positive attitude:

Focus on Positive aspect

We always look for faults and forget to see positive vibes. If we condition our mind to read positive things, we are bound to have positive personality. Remember, in goldmines, people focus on Gold and not on dirt and dust that comes out while digging. If you focus on negative, you spread negative messages and create environment conducive to negative results.

Avoid procrastination

Cultivate the habit of living in the present and doing it now. A completed task is fulfilling and energizing and an incomplete task drains energy. Most of us have the habit of dragging and postponing things, consequently we always find our selves in planning and analyzing mode and actual action never takes place.

Focus on virtues

Focus on knowledge and wisdom and not on grades. Educating the mind and not developing moral create menace in the society. Wealth without character and conscience is a waste. If you are not trustworthy, you have no credibility. Trust is a capital, once lost very difficult to regain.


Apart from 5 god gifted senses, we have a sixth sense – commonsense, that we develop over the time. It is the sense that enables us to take right decision at the right time. If you lack commonsense, it is useless how strong your other senses are. I have seen many walking encyclopedia and living failure simply for lack commonsense.

High Self-Esteem

Self-Esteem is the way we feel about ourselves. Self-Esteem is the feeling of gratification that has nothing to do with success and winning. When you do something for others, you feel good, you are at you best and your self esteem gets a big boost. No matter how rich or poor you are, a person with high self esteem definitely touches high goals in life.

Avoid negative influences

We are born achievers and winners. It is the negative influences and environment that conditions our mind to be a loser. We all are impressionable to varying degree and thus required stay in the company of well motivated people.

Learn to like the task

Never hate your work, perform with utmost passion, result is guaranteed. When I asked a mother that how she could manage to take care 3 demanding kids. She said that it was a job she loved.

Practice having positive thoughts and behavior daily

Just as you feed your body with food everyday, treat you mind with positive thoughts everyday. Our mind is most receptive in the morning. Repeating healthy thoughts in the morning conditions your mind to be positive and ultimately becomes your habit. Success and positive thoughts go hand in hand.
