Positivity and Boiling Water

By: | Posted in: Success Mindset | Tuesday, Sep 20, 2011 - 10:11pm

You probably know how important it is to keep a positive mindset, yet sometimes it’s really hard to keep your optimism up.

When things are going bad in your life or business and you really try hard to focus on the positive, it doesn’t really seem to make a big difference in the overall picture.

If you find yourself in this situation, the tendency is to throw in the towel and give up.

But this would be like waiting for a pot of water to boil and, just because it takes time, you give up and turn off the heat.

Negative emotions are usually strong, like taking a cold shower – you really feel it!

Positivity is slower to be felt – it takes more time to warm up.

Yes, it’s not by noticing a beautiful flower that you are going to overcome the negativity in your life.

But if we keep our eyes open to beauty, things that make us wonder, things that inspire us, that raise our curiosity and interest, then slowly we can start to feel the difference.

Like the water pot on the stove, if you keep looking at it and wondering when the water is going to boil, it will certainly feel like a long time.

Instead, focus on the small stuff. Small things can make a big difference in the long run – you just have to keep going.

And get support too, surround yourself with positive people, speak to your coach, whatever works for you, just do it!
