‘Is your glass half full or half empty?’
Positive people are generally happier and more successful than those with a negative approach. It is more than just thoughts, it is an individual’s entire approach to life - being positive works.
Every individual sends out an aura around them, which tells people how they are feeling. The hidden emotions can be seen through facial and body language.
Motivating ones self can be hard, finding the will power to improve actions, thoughts and beliefs can take forever if you don’t build your self-esteem. Remember that motivation is caused by both internal and external factors that help to drive our desires and energy.

• Learn new skills
• Improve your personal living space
• Deal with one thing at a time
• Have your own journal and write down your thoughts
