Have you ever wanted to be a more positive person? Yeah, it isn’t as easy as flipping a switch. But there are some things you could do that will make you start seeing the positive, especially in a negative work environment, and it all comes down to mindset.
According to INC. there are three things that can help you be a more positive person and they include:
Develop self-awareness – Self-awareness is something that will help you protect yourself from your shortcomings. Look at what is happening, or what you are doing, that’s making you so negative, and in some cases you could be the reason for all the negative behavior around you. Once you notice this, it’s the first step towards helping you change that behavior to become more positive.
Break down your negative support system – The people you surround yourself with could be contributing to your downer attitude, so take a long hard look at the people in your support system and see if they are contributing to your negative attitude. Especially at work, if you find yourself with too many of these people around you, you may want to make some changes.
Have positive substitutes for negative behaviors – After getting rid of the negative people in your life, search out folks with more positive opinions and attitudes which can lead to healthy collaboration, safe work engagement and better productivity.
