Am I throwing Quantum Physics jargon now?
Sheldon (The Big Bang Theory) would have been my perfect audience in that case.
For a refresher, a proton is a subatomic “stable” particle that carries a positive charge.
I have been asked many times- how do i stay positive and motivated?
That had me thinking.
Is it by default that I stay optimistic,
or is it a conscious, consistent effort
that has resulted in my overall attitude of staying positive.
Surround yourself with positive people
Here are the three tips from my life that will help you stay positive at work and in life, in general.
Bad company corrupts good character. Energies are contagious.
Unless you have meditated over the years and awakened your kundalini (or aura), it is quite difficult to resist bad company over a long period of time.
Hence, the best thing you can do is to keep the company of motivated, happy, and positive people.
Their positive energies will inspire you to remain optimistic even in difficult situations.
Get Inspired by positive leaders
Always have an inspiration in life.
It depends on you as what or who could be your source of inspiration.
In my case, I have always been deeply inspired by leaders that brought about a positive change to the world.
Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, Steve Jobs, and even the 17-year old Pakistani girl Malala Yousafzai.
When you read and follow the works and life of such people, you will always have a reason to stay positive.
Moreover, it will inspire you to do better in life.
What gives you joy?
I talk about passion often.
Recently, I talked about how passion is an important element of entrepreneurship.
When you do not follow your passion, you will find it difficult to stay happy.
In short, negativity will creep on you.
On the other hand, when you decide to pursue your passion, even the most testing times will seem easy to tackle.
Introspect and find out what’s your passion.
And then follow it with all that you have.
At the end of a log day, you deserve a smile on your face.
And that comes from doing things we find joy in.
So guys, bring out the Proton in you and knockout the negativity.
Those were my three conscious strategies to stay positive and energetic.
