Tips for Becoming More Positive, Resilient and Successful

Resilience is often listed as an important key to life and career success.  Researchers have found that people who has a positive outlook are more likely to bounce back from life’s inevitable setbacks.  On the other hand, people with a negative outlook find it harder to do so.

New research shows that we can take steps to generate positive emotions, increase our resilience – and become more successful.

Here’s a list of things you can do to help you generate positive emotions and become a more positive person.

  • Do things for others.
  • Appreciate the small good things in your life and this world.
  • Make friends, build relationships.
  • Set realistic goals, and then go out and accomplish them.
  • Be curious.  Learn something every day.
  • Accept yourself — even your flaws.
  • Accept others — even their flaws.
  • Treat setbacks as failures as learning experiences.
  • Be mindful, focus on the here and now.  Let go of things you can’t control.

I do my best to practice these behaviors.  You shold too.  Put them to work in your life, and you’ll see positive results.
