Sometimes being optimistic is considered as bad. However, it is not. Optimism always stays in the limit. There will be no fantasies in it. It creates a hypothetical opportunity to do best and give best. For example, you are a football fan and watching a football game. In a do or die match of FIFA world cup, your favorite team is losing. What will you do? What can you do? There is nothing in your control expect prayers, wishes, hope, and optimism. Your team needs three-goal in last ten minutes. Is it possible? Yes. However, in the real world, it is near to impossible. However, not impossible. This is where optimistic people come in. They not only hope that their team may win, but they are so optimistic that, they think their team has a chance of winning the FIFA world cup. This is how your life is. It does not matter what happened in your life until 2017. The New Year is here. If you cannot change too many things, at least you can be optimistic. Optimism brings in happiness and confidence. This will lead to the success. In this article, we will guide you to how to remain optimistic in 2018.
- 1. Do not forget past and stay in your present
Many times, you read or heard this line. Except for the past part. People say forget the past and move on. No this is not entirely right. This is only good when you have faced too much of trauma, abuse or any kind of torture. If you have faced difficulties, challenges, and failures, then you should not forget them. They are the ones, which will keep you motivated. They will make sure that you do not repeat the mistake. By staying in present, you are looking at your future. If you work well now your future will be better. That is the optimism you should have.
- Think and sink that you will be happy
Being happy is the key. Nobody knows what is there for you in your future. Then why worry about it. However, not worrying does not mean you should not try to find precautions for the future. If you do not have petrol in your car, then you cannot drive your car. The car needs the fuel to move forward. That is why you need happiness in your life. This will help you to lead your life in a good way. The optimism that makes you feel and stay happy will lead you to happiness in 2018.
- Optimistic about the external influence
Why do you always want to be in a pessimistic zone? It is because of external influence. It may be politics, your friends, your family and it may be the weather. You can control your friends and family. But not the weather and political influence on your life. Because they need a collective effort. So try to limit the negative effect of the external influence and stay in the world of optimism. However, thinking that the rain outside your window will provide water for drinking, cools your planet and brings stability to the environment, you will have an optimistic life. If the politics is very bad then it can only get better from there. They are how you can be optimistic.
- Expect the reward for your work
Many people in the world work hard but do not get the reward they want. It happened to me. I needed the reward for my work very badly. I faced tough times. I did not get the reward when I needed it the most. I still do. I still do not have the reward. However, I am optimistic in this year of 2018. It calms my brain nerves. It makes me feel good. It keeps all the negative thoughts away from my mind. I do not know when I will get the reward. However, there is an optimism, which keeps me active and alive. Therefore, you need to feel that your work will not go unnoticed. You will get recognition. You will get your reward. Hope for the best.
- Meeting friends and family
This is one of the best ways to stay optimistic. How? At times, you may feel that there is no one in this world, who loves you. However, no you are wrong. Your friends and the family members love you. This will make you feel that you are wanted in this world. You will bring freshness to this world.
- Consider responsibility as love but not as work
Recently, I went through a tough time. I am still going through that phase. However, the responsibilities I have on my shoulders started to feel less weight, when I considered it as my love and care for my family instead of responsibility or the work. Love your work and love your responsibility.
- Play with babies and kids
If you have kids or babies, then you are blessed to have a greatest optimistic thing in your life. They keep you motivated, fresh, happy and occupied. All your stress will go out. If you do not have, kids then play with kids and babies in your neighborhood. Try it to believe it.
- Charity, help and faith on humanity
Do as much charity as you can. Help people. I do it whenever i get the chance to. When i go out on bike, if I see someone walking then I ask him whether i can drop him to nearest place to his destination in my route. It gives me happiness. I want to do it as much as possible. Only money cannot be. This will restore your faith and that person’s faith on the humanity. This is the best form of optimism.
