Want to feel more positive, energetic, enthusiastic? Then act like it.
If your thoughts are defeating you, overpower those thoughts with positive behavior. When you can’t think your way out of a negative attitude, start acting your way out.
A single positive action can quickly overcome hours or days worth of negative feelings. Get yourself on the move, get yourself physically doing something useful, and your frame of mind suddenly improves.
Even better, find a way to do something positive and helpful for someone else. Something as simple and easy as a genuine smile can make a big difference for everyone who experiences it.
Stand up straight, hold your head high, breathe deeply, walk confidently forward. You will immediately feel the way such actions improve your outlook on life.
When you take positive action, your whole being takes notice and follows along. Act the way you want to feel, and that’s precisely how you’ll be.
“You can be happy or sad, it doesn’t matter. You get to choose. You can go this way or that way. You get to choose. Figure it all out as you go. There’s not one right path. There are many right paths. Do anything you can do — which means think it or speak it or do it — that makes you feel a little better”. – Abraham
