The worst thing any of us can do in this life is to assume the worst. That is automatically setting you up for negative results, because you’ve already made up your mind about it and are now determined to make your thoughts a reality. Even if we aren’t intentionally trying to make the situation a negative one, when we tell ourselves that “nothing will go right, this day will suck, this is no good”, then our minds will do everything in its power to make sure that that is in fact true by pointing out the negative and then fueling more fire into the flame.

If you go into the day stating that you will have a great day, your mind is determined to see just that. With a positive mindset, every wrong turn taken throughout the day can be rectified, you can put a positive spin to anything if you are truly determined to have a good day. Same thing goes for a negative mindset, you can put a negative spin on anything if you truly believe that you won’t have a good day.

So let’s make it a key point to always hope for the best. Life will throw a lot at us and it’s up to us to determine how we respond to the situation. That is the only real control we have, how we choose to respond. You can either succumb to the negative vibes coming your way and continue to add to them, or you can be the bigger person and save the day by putting your own positive spin to the problems. There is always a brighter side to every negative situation, it’s up to us to determine whether or not we will choose to cross that tunnel to see the goodness in it or stay put and continue to sulk and feel sorry for ourselves.
