Life Hack #5 – The Power of Positive Thinking

Even on your hardest days, positive thinking and actions are always encouraged. It’s true life gets difficult, forcing us to dig even deep down within us to even find the positive in your life. Positive thinking may be difficult on even the best days, as it’s easy to complain and forget to count our own blessings. But, we are human.

Today, I encourage you to continue to dig deep and challenge yourself. I find that I am most positive when I am giving something new a try, or simply just challenging myself. Trying something new to me is something that truly challenges me.

Lately, however, life gave me a shock up my spine; things got difficult and I had to find lots of courage and strength to get through many of my days. Finding small, unique positive aspects of my days were really important to me and helped the days go by much quicker and happier.

I feel that when you are challenged and in difficult situations, you realize how much even the smallest things matter to you and it truly forces you to become a more positive version of yourself. Even the smallest things these days make me happy. The hard times allow you to truly become the grateful, positive version of yourself you want to be, as you recognize all the beautiful things that you took for granted the last few days.

I promise you though, that a positive way of life is much more meaningful and fun version of living. Why not find the light at the end of the tunnel and make it possible for your life to be better and more meaningful? A constant state of complaining, and an unwillingness to want to make things better is not a relevant way of living these days. Similarly, positivity challenges you, forcing you to think of good thoughts and radiate positive emotion, rather than letting your brain get flooded by negative thoughts.

Negativity is an inevitable part of life, but a willingness to make things better and better yourself is key. You can be extremely successful being negative – do not get me wrong, but do you want to live like that?

When life really challenges you, it really does rain and pour. But, instead of approaching it with more negativity try combating with positive energy. The way I see it the more you are positive, the more positive outcomes that will come of it.

Life Hack #3 – Wholesome Learning

Days should be spent learning, and not just the typical textbook learning, but learning from other sources outside of your traditional learning tools. Experiment with expanding your horizons with things you encounter every day, whether it be learning more about people, science, odd topics, the news, etc. Maybe, even learn more about work, or where your even from.

We, as a society, are blessed with technological advancements that allow us to access the most variety of information. We are not limited to the mindless pages of our textbooks; we have our whole universe to learn about.

If learning is limited to our textbooks, we are simply confining our minds from a handful of knowledge. All of our learning at our educational facilities may not cater to all of our needs, values, and general interests. That is okay. Learning things you do not like is also helpful, as you can find it interesting or find it somewhat interesting.

Learning, beyond traditional learning, can be a fun, enjoyable activity, and being informed, and most importantly mindful, about what is going on in our world is important.

We can create our own value systems, morals, and broaden our minds with information that is not given to us directly from our school. Additionally, enjoying what you are learning is something that we can all become a little bit better about, seeing that this kind of accessibility to information of all genres, topics, and sub-topics, is not something that we all are able to attain.

Taking something out of every day and taking interest in something that you enjoy, or do not enjoy, is a life skill that assists in keeping life fun, lively and interesting.

Tap into your curious side and experience, learn and be knowledgeable about learning, and the power of learning. Being knowledgeable and accessing, and processing new information, can be an exciting.

Want to be in the loop? Give learning a try. Utilize your life skills that allow you to access the world, at the ease of your finger tips. The Internet and Google can become your best friends.

Experience some passion towards making your life more wholesome and meaningful. If you truly want to juice the fruit, learning will help you get the juice. I can assure you that!
