There was a time in my life when I felt very lost. My days were long and filled with hours of self-pity, worry, uncertainty, and fear. Every day seemed daunting because it had become an endless cycle of trying to find meaning for what I was doing and the hope that things would get better for me one day.
For a while, it looked like things weren’t going to change anytime soon, but then I found the courage to take action. I found the courage to believe in myself enough to stop blaming myself for not being able to do anything about the situation at hand because I realized that if you want something, you work hard and do whatever it takes to get what you want.
The process of finding a solution can be long and arduous, but in the end, the rewards are worth all the work that is put into figuring out a way to resolve whatever problem you might have at hand.
The secret to getting through any tough situation is by cultivating your emotions, positive emotions that can provide the energy and momentum needed to get through the hardships of life.
Positive emotions move you forward, while negative emotions pull you back.
Cultivating your positive emotions helps you take daily steps towards building a better future for yourself and anyone involved in what you are trying to accomplish.
Emotions play an integral part in any success story because your emotions are what allow you to feel the full potential of life. The good news is that cultivating your positive emotions is incredibly simple. All you have to do is get in touch with yourself and tune in with all the amazing things around you.
Here are some easy steps that can help cultivate your emotions into building your very own success story.
1 — Get Positive. As silly as this might sound to you, starting on the right foot is important for cultivating your positive emotions to help build your future. When you wake up each morning, begin by saying good morning to yourself and be thankful that you are alive, even if it’s just for another day. Acknowledging that you are living is enough to help you gain the positive energy needed to start your day.
2 — Get Active. Once you’ve had breakfast, head out for a quick 15–30 minute walk or jog. The fresh air and simple act of walking will help get your blood pumping, which will boost endorphins in your brain to increase the amount of energy you have.
3 — Get Outside. Spend about 10 minutes doing some landscaping or yard work. Gardening is a beautiful way to get your hands dirty and connect with nature, which can help boost creativity and problem-solving skills. If gardening isn’t quite what you are looking for, head out on a hike or find a nice park to get outside and enjoy.
4 — Get Social. Reach out to an old friend you haven’t talked to in years or meet someone new, simply by saying hello or finding something in common with another person can help you feel more open and positive about life.
5 — Get Moving. Once you’ve finished your day, spend some time doing something active such as going to the gym or working on a new workout routine at home. Working out is known for helping people relieve stress and feel more positive about themselves, which in turn improves mental clarity, which helps with creativity.
6 — Get Inspired. Before heading off to bed, spend some time learning something new, whether it’s reading a book, listening to an educational podcast, or even watching TED talks on YouTube. Opening up your mind to things that inspire you is a great way to help cultivate positive emotions, allowing for more positivity in all areas of your life.
The act of cultivating your positive emotions may seem like it’s too simple, but the truth is that these little steps do make a difference in how you feel each day. You may not notice right away, but when you wake up the following days and practice these simple habits, over time, your mindset will shift to one of positivity, and everything will start changing for the better.
