Ten Tips To Staying Positive In
by Marilyn Ellis
media is on a roll! What fun and profit to be able to report doom and
gloom and have viewers glued to their TV sets, listening to the pundits
tell us how bad it all is and how worse its going to get. TV
advertisers are loving it. How do you stay positive and continue to
attract abundance in your life when there's a downright conspiracy to
keep you focused on the negative? Here are Ten Tips to overcome and to
manifest abundance, despite the so-called gloom and doom of the current
1. Refuse to buy in to the fear (media, newspapers, naysayers) Bad news
sells. Good news is considered dull and unworthy of reporting. Have you
noticed how the stock market reacts to even the slightest rumor?
Thoughts are powerful! Be aware of what you are contributing to that
2. Be grateful for anything and everything. I know, sometimes it seems
impossible and sounds like Pollyanna playing the "glad game". She was
absolutely right. Open your eyes to what others are experiencing.
Chances are there are a lot of other people out there who would love to
trade places with you. Have you ever considered that? Can you see,
hear, walk, and talk? Even with aches and pains, are you physically in
pretty good shape? Do you have a home, a family? A lot of people are
not so well off. When was the last time you stopped to smell the roses
- sunshine or a snowflake, a bird or a butterfly, or a flower on the
street or in your own garden? These are gifts too, you know. Be
grateful about everything you can think of.
3. Be generous. Yes, people are cranky these days. They might push in
front of you in line or cut you off in traffic. Some stranger might be
rude to you. Consider that they, just like you, are doing the best they
can. Perhaps they have a lot on their minds. Whatever, don't sweat the
small stuff and just let it go. Next time you have change at the
grocery store; drop it in the charity bucket at the checkout. Donate to
or volunteer your time with a local charity. Donate rather than sell on
eBay. Having a grateful heart and a generous spirit is the quickest way
to attract abundance in your own life.
4. Get Moving! Nobody is going to bail you out, unless you are a bank
or Wall Street Get creative and think outside the box. There are
solutions all around you. They will appear when you relax and lighten
5. Keep away from the Moaners and Groaners. You know who they are. The
ones that like to sit around and complain and focus on all the ills of
the world. They are energy vampires. Get them out of your life. Turn
off the TV News, the violent films, the violent music.
6. Get with the Movers and the Shakers - the people you know that have
goals and plans to achieve those goals. If you don't know any, find
some! Be mindful of where you spend your precious time. Your time is
your life. Spend it wisely.
7. Build your network of helpers - aka already successful people. No
one can succeed without the help of others. It is OK to ask for help.
Don't be shy. Push through the fear. People actually like helping other
people. You will be surprised.
8. Listen to your dreams. That's your intuition speaking. Whatever you
dream can be made into reality. What is it that you have always wanted
to be or do? Now is the time. Now is your chance. Take it. Have you
ever heard the phrase, "If your dreams don't scare you, they are not
your dreams."? Push through that fear and take the chance.
9. Keep Trying. Very few people are successful the first time they try
something new. Don't stop trying until you get what you want. Going out
on a limb is where all the fruit is!
10. Expect and recognize even the smallest blessings every day. As you
consciously raise your awareness of the "little things" you will see
more and the blessings will get bigger and bigger.
There are a lot of good things happening in the world. We rarely hear
about the good people in the world, but they are out there in great
numbers. Just because its not on the front page, doesn't mean that
peace isn't in progress and prosperity isn't on its way back.
I'd like to leave you with my favorite quote from the poet, Goethe:
"Whatever you can do or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has power
and magic and genius in it."
My grandfather gave me the best advice: "Believe only half of what you
see and none of what you hear". I've tried to remember that advice and
have taught it to my children as well. It's done us in good stead. It
will do you in good stead too. I wish you positive thoughts and
