4 Easy Steps To A More Positive Outlook On Life

People think you have to be naive or unrealistic to be an optimist, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. You don’t have to lie to yourself about your life situation and pretend it is perfect. You can be painfully honest about things and still be an optimistic person. Being an optimist doesn’t have anything to do with the state of your life at this exact moment.

You can be going through hard times right now and have a lot of things you wish to change and still be optimistic. Optimism has to do with what you expect the future to be like, not what’s happening now. It’s important to know that positive expectations for the future manifest positive emotions in the present. Below are four steps you can take to put you on the path to living an optimistic life:


Plant The Seeds of Optimism

First, you need to start by making the committed choice to be an optimist in your life. That means being an optimist when things are going well and also (especially) when things are tough. Once you’ve decided this is the type of person you want to be, you can begin the process. The first thing you should do is plant seeds of optimism in your heart. 

Pretend you’re planting a flowerbed, and visualize your hands full of random flower seeds ready to be planted. Next, imagine yourself digging holes, throwing the seeds in, and watering them. Lastly, visualize your garden full of flowers that make you smile.

Even though you don’t know what the flowers will look like, you do know your garden will soon be full of beautiful flowers, which is enough to make you want to plant them. You trust that the flowers will successfully grow and be healthy, colorful, and gorgeous. In other words, you’re thinking about the future and expecting positivity.


Nurture Your Optimism

Say you planted your flower seeds, and now you’re anxiously awaiting your garden to fully bloom. However, sometimes things don’t go as planned, and there are little detours we have to take. It isn’t enough to plant the seeds and voila- beautiful flowers. It would help to eliminate the influences that can keep your garden from blossoming. You need to know where any negativity in your life comes from. It can be specific people, certain tasks, particular environments, etc.

Recognize these harmful negative sources to start protecting yourself as much as possible. For example, say you see the first buds of a flower but notice a pest has been eating away at it. What should you do? Forget about the whole thing and give up? No, you research and learn how to remove the pests before they take over your garden. Once you resolve that problem, the flower can continue to grow and blossom.

Take some time to reflect on the things that are going well in your life- this should naturally take you to a positive place. Ask yourself this question; “what do I do when I make mistakes in these areas?” Ideally, you should learn from your mistakes and continue to walk strong and proud to the next area of your life. You need to trust in yourself and keep an optimistic attitude no matter what. 


Support Your New Growth

Yay! You planted your seeds, the seedling took and grew, you got rid of the pests, and now you have a beautiful stalk emerging from the ground! Everything is going well; you just need some support for your plants. Supporting the stalks ensures they grow nice and tall instead of sideways and crooked. That’s an excellent time to seek the advice of someone who has a great relationship with the future.

A great choice for the job is a psychic advisor. Ask them if they can help you on your mission to unearth your old, negative beliefs and replace them with positive ones for the future. Does the possibility of future failures worry you? If so, ask the psychic how they have come to peace with the future and what happens. How do they trust that everything will work out fine?

How do they stay grounded and make important decisions that affect their future? Psychics are an excellent resource for learning to be more optimistic because they’ve mastered the art of dealing with the future in the present moment. With the help of a psychic, you can look into the issues that concern you the most about the upcoming months and years.


Enjoy the Life You’ve Made

So, you’ve done a lot of soul-searching and reflective thinking, and things are looking better? That’s awesome! Now it’s time to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Share the joy with those you are closest to. Let your bright colors shine. Let people notice the change in your energy and be happy for you, just as people enjoy a flower by simply being there and being themselves.

Flowers always lean towards the sky and will continue to do so, whether it’s a beautiful sunny day or a gloomy rainy day. They don’t fold over and wilt because that day isn’t sunny. They reach toward the sky because they trust there will be sunshine again. You’ll notice that the universe is there for you when you are your most confident, colorful, and trusting self.

Though it may be hard to grasp, there’s a connection between our well-being in the present moment and our relationship with the future. How you feel about the present moment will significantly improve if you learn how to turn that relationship into a positive one. You’ll notice yourself stronger and happier—positive future expectations=positive living.
