How do you keep a positive outlook in life, when everything falls apart? What do you think at the start of this/all day that will get you to bed and wanting to wake up the next morning doing the same/different thing everyday of your life?

the reason that i wake every morning even with a heavy heart is my son. he is the source of my strength and happiness. also, i always pray to God whenever i feel weak and having some negative thoughts. we can always find strength with God and letting us wake each morning is a blessing from Him. its not easy being always positive because problems are everywhere. but i try my best to flip the negative things to make it a positive one. every thing happens for a reason and God will never put us in a situation we cannot handle. He trusts us so we must trust Him back.

I think it's partly character and the view you have on life what makes you (me) keep a positive outlook in life. I am not a negative person, although realistic. I know when to fight and when to give up. I know that if times are very bad I wil survive again since I did before. I forget as soon as it's over and decided that happiness is a choice. So I do everything in my power to make myself happy. I don't depend on others if it comes to that.

It is hard sometimes to say positive in your life when it doesn't seem as though anything is going your way, but it is important that you try to do so, because our entire lives are better if we are being positive about things, but often we don't have much choice about our outlook. I always find that taking simple exercise can help you to feel a little more positive about everything in your life, but you have to be able to find the motivation to go out and actually do this exercise first, which is often a huge part of the problem that is greatly underestimated by a lot of people.

Everytime I wake up in the morning, I always think that I am lucky that I get to see a new day. I always think that a new day means new blessings as well. We might be doing the same things everday like going to work then home or whatever, but think of the things that you've got and how lucky you have to even have a job or to even eat at least 3 times a day. Also always think that you are not alone. there are people who support you and loves you - your family, relatives, lover or friends.

I just set a goal for me and i remind of myself every single day.It is so important to be rough and therefore so many people get lost.Fortunately,i have family and friends support me.That's really a big encouragement. Anyway,just take a break if you r really tired.Life is like this.

It's all in your mind. If we just think life is a process, then we would not be really bothered about how to get motivation on everyday's life but rather what's the end that we are looking forward to. Some people can also find meaning or challenge in everyday's life. You really don't have to put yourself to do same thing everyday, especially with the Internet.

Be grateful for all the good things in your life things could always be worse. Smile, sometimes there is magic on smile it can warm up even most cynical people, smiling even if you are not happy can help you to stay focused on being positive.
