How to train yourself to have an optimistic mindset

The mind functions as a reservoir, and we must learn how to supply this reservoir. Optimism is an attributive style; essentially, a way we attribute meaning to daily events.
When evaluating a fact of life, pessimistic individuals and optimistic individuals will have opposite perspectives from each other.

For a Positive Fact: “I got a better mark for my English test!”
Optimistic Profile: Everything always works out for me.
Pessimist Profile: My parents will expect me to work harder now.
For a negative fact: “I lost my device.”
Optimistic Profile: I never lose anything, someone probably found it and will return it to me.
Pessimist Profile: I always lose everything; I am so distracted!
If you find yourself identifying with the pessimist profile, don’t be discouraged. With mental strength and daily training, you will be able to create good in any situation.
Starting with your speech, eliminate negative phrases such as “I can’t”, “I always give up”, or “I am stupid”. For example, you may have found yourself saying, “I am lazy.” A better way to frame this in your mind is “Today I did not accomplish as much as I wanted to. I will make a list for tomorrow so I can complete all of my tasks!”  Additionally, try to avoid complaining at all costs. If you are struggling with a subject, try to view the experience as a positive challenge rather than a negative situation. This will allow you to remain in good spirits and help you focus on the subject content in the most productive way possible.

MONDAY 22 JULY 2024 DAY 3

One of the biggest challenges people face today is staying optimistic.
We are living in times of big changes and are bombarded daily with bad news; stories that affect us and impact our hope of the goodness of mankind. We can get caught up in the wave of negativity the media showcases. It brings us an unconscious feeling of comfort when we think, “At least that didn’t happen to me, right?”
This is not a positive mindset for teachers and learners. We are lucky enough to have the skills available to make other people’s lives better. We have the power to change negativity to positivity, one person at a time. Coaches must go forth into the future with the goal of making our world a place where good news, not bad, is the standard. To achieve this, we must be optimistic about our chances for success. Without optimism, we cannot move forward.
