How To Be An Optimist

Do people ever tell you to just be happier? Does it make you angry because you just don’t know how? Here are a couple of habits of optimistic people that might just help all of us:

  • Gratitude - It all starts with counting our blessings. If you are not grateful for the good things in your life, you will never be satisfied.
     
  • Forgive – Forgiveness isn’t so much for the person who wronged you, but for you to relieve yourself of the burden of carrying around all that anger and resentment.
     
  • Smile – Not only does smiling physiologically make you feel better, it makes the people around you happier and more comfortable.
     
  • Create  your future – Don’t let your past dictate your future. People come from all kinds of terrible backgrounds, but they can still be destined for great things.
