‘If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul.

Rabbi Harold Kushner

How did you start your day?

What were your first feelings on waking?

Were you expecting a perfect day or just twenty-four hours of hassle?

Are you thinking like an optimist or a pessimist?

It’s not what happens to you that counts but rather how you deal with what happens to you. I know, things do go wrong, and life can be demanding and challenging, but we can still choose the quality of our experiences. Optimism and confidence go hand in hand.

The Law of Attraction says that we create whatever we think about. We live within an electromagnetic field and every thought we have charges the energy field with vibrations. Like attracts like and this is why pessimistic people really are always having such a bad time (negative patterns attract all other forms of negativity). Optimistic people feel upbeat and attract good outcomes because positive thought patterns attract more positivity into their lives. Try this checklist and discover how much of an optimist you are.

The Optimist’s Checklist

• Is your cup half full or half empty?

• Do you expect the best to happen?

• Do you believe that you can change your reality?

• Are you a positive thinker?

• Can you relax and let go sometimes?

• Do you love your life?

• Are you generally a happy person?

Optimists have confidence in themselves and in the universe. Choose to act like an optimist and just feel the difference in the quality of your life.
