Don't worry, be happy
Positive thinking can empower us in a way that would boost our self esteem, expand our comfort zone and make us healthy, thus paving the way for professional growth.
Winston Churchill had once remarked that a pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity while an optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty.
Are you the one who frets at the sight of a difficult assignment or feels he won't be able to meet the tough deadline? Or are you the type who can meet challenges head on? It is easy to identify the optimist in office he focuses his energy on identifying a solution and charting out a roadmap for achieving the task at hand. He nurtures a mental attitude that admits positive thoughts, words and images in his mind, leading to success and happiness.
The positive image a professional who is a die-hard optimist, will always think positive. He expects to see brightness and sunshine everywhere and he uses words like "I will," "I can" and "it's possible." While a pessimist would lose precious time just thinking about the problem and getting bogged down by it. He does not focus on the solution, the optimist does.
An optimist would introspect and figure out the disconnect between performance and expectations and try and bridge the gap, never losing sight of the goals.
Associate with positive people. Both positive and negative thoughts are contagious.
At the workplace one often encounters unhappy souls, who find something wrong with almost everything around them. They point fingers when things go wrong, they grumble, moan and find fault. You need to steer clear of these people as they rub off their attitude and state of mind on us. It always helps to be amongst people who are optimistic, upbeat and happy.
