Tips for achieving a positive mental attitude

In researching this column, I came across the following tips for achieving a positive mental attitude. Some of them may work for you without trying; others may require more effort on your part:
• Smile.
• Laugh.
• Greet people courteously.
• Be enthusiastic.
• Dream. Engage in “imagineering.” Set a goal. Aim high.
• Act on your plan. Don’t make excuses.
• Be single-minded in your purpose.
• Love your work as a spousal caregiver.
• Be focused at all times. Be dedicated and disciplined.
• Show commitment
• Strive for excellence. Set your own benchmark.
• Be humble and open-minded.
• Be open to change. Don’t be afraid to take risks.
• Don’t be judgmental. Forgive and forget.
• Develop a loving attitude to everyone around you.
• Accept adversity and disappointments. Overcome them and move on — stronger than before.
• Cultivate a working philosophy of life. Turn every experience, good or bad, into a learning experience.
• Be your own critic. Strive for improvement.
• Live each day as though it were your last. Live life to the fullest.
• Remember, we are not human beings having a spiritual experience; rather, we are spiritual beings having a human experience.
• Always keep your face to the sun — and the shadows will fall behind you.
