Scroll down to see which are some important characteristics of a positive thinker.
Which Are 3 Inner Characteristics Of A Positive Thinker?
1. They Accept Your Mistakes No Matter What Happens
Most of us try hard to create accomplishments in our lives. We hope, pray, and “keep on keeping on.”
Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, things can go the other way – resulting in disappointment and rejection. The concept of acceptance is so prevalent and esteemed that three of the major world religions: Christianity, Islam, and Buddhism, base their core dogmas off of it.
Acceptance allows you to learn from your mistakes and maintain perspective, rather than exaggerating or reacting dramatically. In other words, please do not beat yourself up. Just make the most of what happened, forgive yourself, and move on.
2. They Are Thankful For The Things They Got
Granted, we’ve heard it a million times. “Be thankful for what you have…”
We are all so busy with our work, families, and other obligations, that it’s easy to forget to contemplate the good (small) stuff in our lives. A roof over our heads, food on the table, a warm embrace, a paycheck, air in our lungs… these are all things to be thankful for.
Positive thinkers consciously take time each day and feel grateful for these things. Gratitude is a practice and something that needs to be cultivated and encouraged every single day. It’s not a once in a while type of thing or something you do when everything is going well. It’s a daily practice, no matter what is going on, that in time can flow very naturally to the point where you are living a life of pure gratitude and bliss.
This is in fact probably the cornerstone characteristic of a positive thinker. If we’re mindful (and honest) we can think of many things to be truly grateful for every day.
3. They Act Morally
Telling the truth is a very noble trait, but it’s more than that… integrity is about being honorable, moral, righteous and straightforward.
As human beings, we are not born with an inclination toward lying and deceptiveness. Rather, we are conditioned to think that it’s an acceptable behavior. Usually, even if we aren’t conscious of it, we adopt that behavior as a way to achieve “love” and “acceptance”. Through the pressures and tribulations of this world, we sometimes feel that we can potentially benefit by telling a lie – from a “little white lie” to a gross exaggeration.
Either way, our acts (even the little ones) matter and they can and will affect us and others around us. Truth and righteousness always prevails – sometimes not always in the way we expect. Call it the cycle of Karma if you will, but either way, living a life of integrity will create a wonderful ripple effect in your life.
If you need proof, please study the most influential figures of our history. From divine figures such as Jesus and Buddha, to everyday heroes like Martin Luther King and Mother Theresa, these individuals exemplified the power of integrity, despite of the consequences – some of which were grave.
Integrity is a powerful characteristic in a positive thinker. The two go hand in hand just as are lying and negativity. You cannot have one without the other.
As with all of the other positive inner traits, integrity is something that truly positive people innately understand and live by; and something we can all adopt into our life.
