Of course, my personal Good may disagree with some other people's standards of Good, but hey, that's their problem, not mine. (Those are also usually people who I have a problem with, so, yeah. Live and let live.) Either way, I don't let other people influence me and my actions, as long as I toe the line enough to keep out of serious trouble. Heh.
My main philosophy for life is the glass half full thing. You may think I'm some crazy happy person but really I'm not. I just try my hardest to stay optimistic and that has surely gotten me much further than I would have if I were to look at situations normally all the time.
In my opinion, if you behave more optimistically, you will be more likely to keep trying instead of giving up after a failure. You might do more than you expected, even if the effort is not successful, it can be a positive learning experience, suggesting a different way to tackle a similar problem the next time.
Regardless of what you do for work, you should think of the positive outcomes. If your job is scrubbing floors, stand back and admire how shiny and clean they look. Regardless of whether you’re overweight, underweight or average set yourself achievable goals, and don’t be so shallow because not many people want to be around a glass half empty person.
Surround yourself with positive, upbeat people. But be aware that if you are always negative and always see only the dark side of things, the optimists in your life may eventually give up on you. Focus on situations that you can control, and forget those you can’t.
Of course nobody can be happy all the time but you can start by turning all your negative thoughts into positive ones.
