Learned Optimism Lesson in How To Change Your Mind To Change Your Life

Change Your Mind To Change Your Life, Learned Optimism Lesson

 

 

 

The bottom line is this: Change Your Point of View – Enjoy Your Life!

“Two men look out through the same bars: One sees the mud, and one sees the stars.”

– Frederick Langbridge

Learned optimism is something that you need to practice. You must make a decision to be optimistic!

For example, if you placed second in a writing contest, will you jump for joy and push for better results the next time or will you be discouraged and find an excuse not to join again?

In life, you are always filled with choices. You may opt to have a pessimist’s view and live a self-defeated life or you may decide to take the route of learned optimism and take on challenges to live a constantly changing, exciting and fulfilling life.

So why nurture the mindset of learned optimism as your point of view? And why now?

Well, optimism has been linked to positive mood and good moral; to academic, athletic, military, occupational and political success; to popularity; to good health and even to long life and freedom from trauma.

On the other hand, the rates of depression and pessimism have never been higher. It affects middle-aged adults the same way it hits younger people. The mean age of onset of depression has gone from 30 to 15. It is no longer a middle-aged housewife’s disorder but also a teen-ager’s disorder’ as well.

It is integral to your health to take on a lifestyle change of learned optimism and stay in action. Here’s the research that backs up why it really pays to be an optimist:

  • Optimists expect the bestThe defining characteristic of pessimists is that they tend to believe bad events, which will last a long time and undermine everything they do, are their own fault. The truth is optimists are confronted with the same hard knocks of this world. What differs is the way they explain their misfortune—it’s the opposite way. They tend to believe defeat is just a temporary setback, that its causes are confined to this one case.
  • Optimists tend to focus on and plan for the ‘problem’ at hand. They use ‘positive reinterpretation.’ In other words, they most likely reinterpret a negative experience in a way that helps them learn and grow. Such people are unfazed by a bad situation, they perceive it is a challenge and try harder. They won’t say “things will never get better,” “If I failed once, it will happen again” and “If I experience misfortune in one part of my life, then it will happen in my whole life.”  Positive expectancies of optimists also predict better reactions during transitions to new environments, sudden tragedies and an unlikely turn of events. If they fall, they will stand up. They see opportunities instead of obstacles. People respond positively to optimists
  • Optimists are proactive and less dependent on others for their happiness. They find no need to control or manipulate people. They usually draw people towards them. Their optimistic view of the world can be contagious and influence those they are with.
  • Optimism seems a socially desirable trait in all communities. Those who share optimism are generally accepted while those who spread gloom, panic and hysteria are treated unfavorably. In life, these people often win elections; get voted most congenial and sought for advice. When the going gets tough, optimists get tougher.
  • Optimists typically maintain higher levels of subjective well-being during times of stress than do people who are less optimistic. In contrast, pessimists are likely to react to stressful events by denying that they exist or by avoiding dealing with problems. Pessimists are more likely to quit trying when difficulties arise. Pperseverance is a characteristic of those who have taken on the learned optimism mindset. They just don’t give up easily, they are also known for their patience. They inch their way a step closer to that goal or elusive dream.
  • Optimists are healthier and live longer. Medical research has justified that simple pleasures and a positive outlook can cause a measurable increase in the body’s ability to fight disease. Optimists’ health is unusually good. They age well, much freer than most people from the usual physical ills of middle age and they get to outlive those prone to negative thoughts.

So why not take on the life-changing skill of learned optimism today? Think positively towards a more fulfilled life.

Why not look forward to success in all your endeavors? Why not be resilient?

Like everyone else you are bound to hit lows sometimes, but make a committed effort to just not stay there.

Carry yourself out of the mud and improve your chances of getting back on the right track.

Why not inspire others to remove their dark-colored glasses and see life on the bright side through a committed mental position of learned optimism?

Unfortunately things weren’t as easy as I had imagined they would be.

There were so many different companies, products , software and training that I began to get completely confused and eventually came down with a bad case of online overwhelm and felt completely alone online!

There were so many times that I wished I had someone who I could contact just to ask a simple questions that could end up saving me loads of time.

Along the way I found some coaches and mentors that helped me move through obstacles and I kept pushing on ahead.

I feel blessed to have met people like these that answered simple questions for me that saved me time and money, because I had wasted away much of both and didn’t want to spend anymore time wandering aimlessly alone online!

For this reason, I have become passionate about giving back!

I want to help others that are starting down the same road that I went down by answering their questions in an easy to follow and understand manner.

Blow Your Whistle on Small Victories, Celebrate Your Entrepreneurial Success!

 

Celebrate Your Entrepreneurial Success, even the Small Victories!

 As self-employed business people, we can often become discouraged by a lack of results early on in our quest for Entrepreneurial Success!

The truth is many people who move their businesses online for increased revenue, traffic and results, often have a full-time job as well that they attend.  Why do we as HUMANS think we can do it all perfectly, in record time flat and without SLEEP?

It’s crazy and unrealistic, in most cases,  to think that we can have full-time results on a quarter time budget. When our activities don’t produce the results that we thought they would right away… we become annoyed, disillusioned and impatient, which can all lead to the path or our destruction.

It is important to verify within ourselves that not all things that are worth doing will always be exceptionally easy.  We must be realistic and fair to ourselves and be sure to give ourselves the KUDOS that we deserve; the pats on the back for accomplishing event he small victories that move us forward to Entrepreneurial Success in our businesses and personal lives as the case may be.

Hope the video below will help you give yourself the credit you deserve, in the realization that personal and entrepreneurial success comes overtime with small victories along the way!  Celebrate your Entrepreneurial Success every day by crediting yourself with the things you did accomplish, don’t just focus on the things you didn’t!
