This not only helps you achieve the goals and dreams you want, but it can also help your wellbeing.

Positive thinking is something that takes a lot of effort to develop (just like any other skill) but it will reap great benefits if applied consistently.

Consider this quote from popular poet Kahlil Gibran, “You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.”

Maintaining a positive mindset no matter what may happen in my life is crucial to achieving personal growth. It may be difficult to remain positive in the face of adversity but it can be done with time and practice.  

Take a deep breath, step back from the situation and remind yourself that things will get better.

As something good happens make sure you reflect on how far you’ve come and how much further you’ve yet to go.

If there is one thing I have learned about life so far it’s this: happiness does not happen by chance but rather as an effect of one’s actions over time.  

A positive mindset does not mean that one must always be happy or in a good mood but rather it means staying upbeat and hopeful about life despite the troubles we all inevitably face.    

Make a conscious effort to push negative thoughts aside and instead fill your head with positive ideas that reflect your long term goals.
