If you’re like me, there are good days and bad days. The good days are filled with sunshine and rainbows; the bad ones bring storm clouds and sadly, more rain. But there’s one thing that can help in both situations: recognizing your strengths so that you can use them to overcome adversity or just have fun being yourself! So here are some tips on how to identify the good in yourself so that you can be more positive while going through life:
Focus on your strengths
You can use these questions to identify your strengths and determine what you are good at.
● What are your strengths?
● What talents do you have?
● Have any hobbies or interests that keep you interested, entertained and motivated in life?
Surround yourself with positive people
In order to find the good within you, you need to surround yourself with positive people. People who are supportive of your goals and aspirations, people who encourage you to be the best version of yourself, and most importantly—people who don’t make negative comments or judgments about anything.
If someone were to say something like “you can never be good enough,” it would probably hurt their feelings because they’re judging themselves too (and therefore also judging others). These are just two examples of how we tend to see things through our own lenses rather than ones that might actually help us achieve success in life or even just feel better about ourselves!
Forgive yourself for your mistakes.
Forgive yourself for your weaknesses.
Forgive yourself for your failures, shortcomings and imperfections.
Accept the things you cannot change
Accepting that you cannot change everything is a huge step in the right direction. It’s hard to accept, but it doesn’t mean that you should give up on yourself or your dreams. You can still be successful if you focus on what you can do, not what you cannot do.
For example: If there is something about yourself that has always been an issue for others (such as your weight), then instead of focusing on how overweight or obese someone else thinks of you, ask yourself how much time and effort does it take for them to see past this aspect of yourself? The answer will probably be zero! So why bother dwelling on it?
Another example would be if someone says something negative about another person at work (e.g., “This person is so lazy!”), instead of taking offense at their comment because “they don’t know any better,” try looking at things from their side before pointing fingers at them or criticizing them — maybe they were tired after working late last night too? Or maybe they had a rough day yesterday due to family issues outside work which caused stress levels rise – then again maybe not… we’re just speculating here!
Do more of what makes you happy
You should do more of what makes you happy.
If you’re not feeling good, it’s time to take a step back and figure out why. Are there any things that are making your life worse, or are they just not as good as they could be? If so, try doing the opposite of those things and see how much better it makes you feel in general.
Take time to smell the flowers
● Take time to smell the flowers.
● Walk around your neighborhood and take in the sights, sounds, and smells of nature.
● Spend time with family and friends—it’s important!
● Do something you enjoy doing or pursuing; whether it’s reading a good book or playing an instrument, give yourself permission to have fun every day.
Incorporate these steps into your daily routine:
● Gratitude is a key part of positive psychology, and it’s something you can cultivate. In fact, gratitude can help you focus on what you have rather than what you don’t have. It also helps make your life feel less stressful—you’ll be happier when all of your problems seem smaller and the good things in life outweigh them by far.
● Keep a gratitude journal for at least two weeks: Write down everything that makes your day better now and every time something good happens in the future (like getting an A on your test). Take note of how grateful these things make you feel as well as how this feeling changes over time (it may get stronger or weaker depending on how much more or less negative emotion there was before).
This is what we want you to take away from this article. We want you to be positive and more successful in your life, so don’t just read it once—read it over again! Our hope is that these tips will help guide your journey toward self-discovery and a deeper understanding of who you are as an individual.
