Make Space for Positive Thinking

Sunrise from space

Happy #spaceday. If you know me, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of all things space. That’s not what I’m going to talk about today, though. I want to talk about the importance of positive thinking in tempestuous times.

Business people the world over have been encountering unprecedented levels of turmoil, upheaval, and disruption. With so much change, and so many challenges, it can feel overwhelming. It can lead to a negative attitude, pessimism, and cynicism. Covid-19 isn’t the only thing that’s infections. Negativity is, also.

We’re all entitled to our feelings, and it’s reasonable to let yourself experience a full range of emotions. However we can choose where we direct our focus. Like driving a car, where we focus is where we steer, and where we steer determines where we end up. The mind is like that, too. If we make space for positive thinking, it will soon snowball, leading to an overall improvement in our mental wellness, and in our work and home lives. So make time for some positive thinking today. Stick with it. Good things will happen in no time. Attitude is altitude!
