Experts usually advice to surround yourself by positive people so you will find it easier to journey through life, regardless of the obstacles and hardships ahead of you. When you are surrounded by negative people, you also attract negative emotions and whatever you do, it seems that nothing is enough.
1. “Failure is part of learning.”
Positive people view failure as an opportunity to learn and get better. They understand that failure is an event, and doesn’t define who they are. Negative people are emotionally disabled by failure because they allow it to define who they are. They fail to understand that it’s part of the learning and growing process.
2. “I always give my best.”
Positive people focus on giving their best effort, regardless of the situation. They understand that there are many things they cannot control, but effort is not one of them. No matter what, the positive person strives to give their best — even if it isn’t much. Negative people want things to come easy to them. If they have to try hard, they believe they just aren’t good at it and give up. They are more likely to give their absolute best if they know people are watching them.
