What is a Positive Attitude?

first you would have to define what is positive, and that can't be done, because positive and negative is relative. what makes you feel good may make me feel bad. there is no wrong answers. no of course, if someone feels strongly about something, or an idea, than to them it IS positive. if i were to go against what that person thought was positive, then i guess in that person's eyes...i would be negative. this does not mean that i am wrong for my way of viewing it, though. it just means that i am negative to whatever you think positive is...and what makes you so right? (hypothetically, of course). i don't know, it was just something i was thinking about, after i heard someone say that another person was not a positive person in their thinking. i started thinking to myself, " what nerve that person had to try to critique they way someone else thought". i also could not understand what made them the authority. do you think that there is such a thing as a positive attitude? or do people just like the idea of trying to controll the way people think, or feel about stuff?

a positive attitude is a energy source,with its characteristics of,unconditional love,respect for all,truth,peacefullness,what u said about what may be positive for one may be negative for the other which is very true but none can live in denial,that positive,positive and negative is negative,the powers of controlling that a positive person has,the negative person as so little of that,and this is how u can tell the positive attitude different from the negative,by studying the the art of relaxation,the more relaxed a person is in any situation,the easier they overcome any obstacle,the less relaxed the person they give up very easily,ready to complain,ready to cheat to win,quick at being angry,will lie their way out of the situation,will quckly steal it to get it,will kill u to achieve the fame and glory,r u understanding the qualities of the negative person,they haven't studied the art of relaxation,so they just have to get it now,they are not patient.

Hi kashers, we meet again. :) I think what you said is true to an extent. Let us say, we dont really have any way to prove that the positive attitude is an energy source. I always that I had both components. The positive, as well as negative. And which one is more? That depends upon different circumstances and situations. I think of my positive qualities as the tooth of a comb and the negative qualities as tooth of another comb. Both these combs are interlinked, just like we can do with our fingers. Cosmic energies (feelings) periodically bombard this compact linking - de linking them. Part of linking still remains. How I will react then depends upon which feeling is coming into contact with which exposed part. There are cosmic feelings that can re-orient and link it back to my harmonious self. For this, others need to release such cosmic feelings. That is love. This is exclusively my theory. There are no proofs, and I want nobody to follow it, unless it is proven. :)

then if we had no way to tell the source of the energy,we would b living in total confusion on this planet,and this is y the energies are known by the character the posses,a positive attitude person is one of total peace,uncondiotional love,respect for all,the opposite of that,is ignorancy and all the other negative qualities u can think of

Hi moongypsy, what I posted above might seem too abstract for you. But a corrollary of that is even if one of the comb is positive in so far as I am concerned, it may have a negative effect elsewhere, i.e., it might create feelings and energies that eventually disturb another person's equilibrium. So it is imperative that all of us try to keep our equilibrium.

The energies that provide required resistance to reach that equilibrium level are negative energies, and the energies that provide required assistance to reach that equilibrium level are positive energies. This is, of course, my theory. :) Not proven so far. :)

A positive attitude is the power which drives you to achieve success. Never get down or failed is a positive attitude. Desire to win is a positive attitude. Doing something good with the hope of good is a positive attitude. Positive attitude brings happiness and best opportunity in our life. Have a good day.

positive attitude means you are positive thinker for any type of person and also for you in any situation you think positive.

a postive attitude is pretty much when you are about to take a test, or getting an operation or about to do something. and if you go in and thinking oh man i am going to fail this test or i am going to die on the table. then negtive things will happen. to me if you go through life with a negtive attitdude then negtive things will happen to you and even if you sirround yourself with negtive people then negtive things will still happen. i'm into writing songs and if i send all my songs out with a negtive out look then negtive will come to me, even if i dont get a song pick up you need to still have a postive out look on life. im disable and i have medical issues, my dad tells me i need to have a postive attitdue to do things which in fact i know i cant do, like pick up things at work, but its knowing the different being postive and knowing realaty

I think positive attitude refers to the good nature of a person. How nicely he arranges everything perfect with perfection in meeting people and no bad effects. there are certain people who who are very ignorant and selfish kind that refers to their negetive shades rather to be perfectly said as negeive attitude.
