Do you have a positive mental outlook? A simple experiment can help you find out…
People who have a positive mental outlook are few and far between because most people are negative. Most people look for bad things to happen, make them happen, then claim that their theory of impending doom was correct. What many people do not realize is the process works in reverse as well. If you look for good things to happen and make them happen, then you can claim that things will work out well. It is all based on your mental outlook.
Have you ever noticed how some people can find good in everything? They look for and find a silver lining in every situation. Even on rainy days they can find something positive to think about. Their secret is simple: they have a positive mental outlook! The best part is that we all have the ability to have a positive outlook. It all starts with a basic understanding: there is a silver lining in every situation if you choose to look for it.
Try the following experiment:
Think about the worst thing that has happened to you this week. Now try to find something positive that can happen, or already has happened as a result of that bad experience. The truth is that if you dig deep enough, there HAS TO BE something positive you can take out of your worst experience.
How many people who try this experiment can find a positive result from a bad experience?
