Having a positive attitude is always healthy. If you are always sad and stressed out than it's really bad for your health and your look. People want to be around other people with positive attitudes not with negative.

If you tend to take a pessimistic attitude toward things, life will be a struggle. Changing to a positive, expectant attitude turns life into an adventure.


You can whine about how tough things are, or you can celebrate every time you have a victory. Don't you think celebrating sounds like more fun?

I've learned that that looking for the best is more fun. Ironically I was most hopeful when my dad was hospitalized. I believed that hewould triumph, and he did. No, you don't always come out a winner in life, but I know you stand a better chance of being a winner if you believe you can win going in.

So what will you choose: hope or despair? Glad or gloomy? If you're a Christian, the choice is obvious. We've got a big God to help us through big troubles.

I DON'T REALLY GET WHAT THIS QUOTE IS TRYING TO SAY? :/

I THINK THAT IT'S TRYING TO SAY THAT IF YOU ALWAYS HAVE A PESSIMISTIC/BAD ATTITUDE TOWARD THINGS IN LIFE, YOU'LL HAVE A BAD LIFE... BUT HAVING A GOOD/POSITIVE ATTITUDE, LIFE CAN REALLY TURN HOW YOU WANT IT TO.....

A positive outlook on life will help you by being the way you are because if your a negative person you will alawys be low in life and will be recognized as a nobody and if you are a happy person people will recognize you as a great and successful person or even as a leader or hero.

If you're optomistic about who to trust, you wont trust anyone, so noone will trust you. Optimism is an instnct that tests your judgement on what is safe. But it is also an instinct that shortens your ability to be spontaneous. If everyone knows your reaction to something how will you know to suprise yourself?

I agree with this quote because just as long as you focus on the good and you tell yourself that you can do it you can succeed. You make yourself believe that you can. Those that tell themselves that they can't have a harder time because they don't have a positive view and don't have encouragement.

Being posative is always good.For example i dont really like making myself feel bad so when something goes wrong i think of it as well it happened for a reason. and i go on with my life. i dont yhave time to cry about it.well most of the time. life is too short and you should always think of the futer. its hard to forgive and forget so you just go on with your life.

well i guess that thisa quote is correct if you only look at the good part of things you will make something of that good and try to mmale it better but if you only look at the bad side your always ging to be like "ohh that cant be fixed it so messed up alrdy that is not worth fixing" you have always got to keep your chin up and look on the bright side of things



Ex. if you see something like a car you ssee a car there and it is a total wreck but if it is a person that thinks that nothing can go to waste that person will try to fix it but oif it is somebody that wants new stuf he is just gojg to leave it there and not care about it

When you have a positive out look on your life, you can succeed. Because you are not putting down yourself, your are working hard. But if you have a negative outlook on yourr life, saying " im going to fail," "Im not goin to make it," then you wont make it

this is true because if you dont look at things postivily you wont have any hope for yourselve nor for others. like the saying the glass if half full but some people may see it as half empty this is just like life, because you can say your life is half started or just started and when you think that way you can be free of any bad thoughts that are in your mind and that helps you with succeed and live livily. = )

You have to be an optimistic person, because having a great out look on life will help you achieve your goals, and even if you dont succeed being optimistic person you know that there is something more for you. Optimism helps people keep their heads up when things are down. It helps people push until they are able to get what they want.

Having a positive outlook on life will help you be successful because everything comes from the mind.If you repeatedly say that you can be successful in your mind, your mind will eventually adopt the idea and you'll feel more motivated to try your best and become successful. On thee other hand, If you have a negative attitude and your level of optimism is low it will be harder for you to accomplish what you want.
