What is a positive mental attitude?

The following are all definitions of what it means to be positive:

1. Develop a "Goal focused" mentality, NOT a "Drifter" mentality.

2. Strive to "Add value" to others, never purposefully act to detract value.

3. Use language that is clear and distinct, not ambiguous or vague.

4. Find solutions for problems, not blame.

5. Spend 20% (or less) of the time talking about the "NO-Can-Do portion of the job".

6. Spend 80% (or more) of the time, talking about the "Can-Do portion of the job".

7. Handle conflict reasonably, NOT emotionally.

8. Never compromise your principles, be always true to your highest sense of morality.

9. Compromise within the bounds of a moral framework, (for instance you might compromise over the price of a purchase or a sale, but you would never compromise over the principle of "honest, fair trade").

10. Give thanks and appreciation whenever it is due.

11. Never neglect to praise people whenever it is deserved.

12. Never waste time, money nor effort.

13. Plan ahead, prioritise tasks and prevent problems.

14. Create energy, don't drain it.

15. Find reasons to be optimistic, not fearful.

16. Concentrate on your goals, not your worries.

17. Don't dwell on the upsets and anger that echo in your mind, from the past.

18. Recover quickly from disagreements. Move on.

19. Assume improvement is always possible. Never feel helpless.

20. Create confidence in yourself; eliminate chronic, or morbid self-doubt.

21. Create an abundance of optimism and then give it away to those who need it most.

22. Become a source of strength to others.

23. Live in a state of positive, rational and clear thought.

Live in accordance with these principles, repeat them to yourself every day, and you will reap the benefits of a positive mental attitude.
