Negative emotions are optional. You have the opportunity to opt out of them by optimizing your optimism. A profound purpose produces passion and persistence. Do you have a compelling reason to live joyfully?
Think of something positive and helpful that you rarely do. Then do it consistently for a week and notice how it improves your life.
The more I pursue kindness, the more happiness happens in my life. People almost always respond positively to heart-felt kindness. Try it and see.
Take the time and make the effort to install helpful habits into your life. Uninstall negative and/or harmful habits.
To optimize your optimism, get your hopes up. Train yourself to expect good things in your life. The fear of disappointment and/or failure causes many people to minimize their hope and surrender to negativity without a fight.
If you want a better life, always strive to express the best of yourself and to overcome the worst. Repeat thoughts and behaviors that make your life better. Resist the ones that make your life worse.
Put your mind on thoughts that optimize your attitude. Target your thinking. Discover and continually spotlight thoughts that produce peace and joy.
Be a hope connoisseur. Consume positive, uplifting media, not negative, degrading media. An undefended mind is continually victimized by marauder thoughts that sneak in by stealth to torment and pillage it.
Without self-mastery, you’ll frequently feel like a jigsaw puzzle poured out of the box, completely unassembled. Courage is the willingness to take positive action when you feel afraid.
Keep your eyes on what beautifies. When we count our blessings, we always make the list too short. The kind of person that you become in life is more important than the money and things that you’re able to accumulate.
The myth that nothing produced everything makes life meaningless. To be pure, Christianity shouldn’t be mixed with anything that distracts people from the living Jesus. God’s plan for me is better than mine. Having people sit thru sermons isn’t the optimal way to help them optimize a Spirit-led lifestyle. See. Romans 8:14.
