I know that right now things for many people are not as we would like them to be financially. The holidays are here and people don't have enough money to give the gifts that they would like to give to their families to show them what high esteem they hold them in. A lot of people have had to scale back their lifestyles and tighten their belts. I have always maintained that almost all problems in your life are financial problems at their root, because if you throw enough money at the problem, the cause of the problem, or investing in the solution to your problems, they will go away. Not that people who have money have less problems, regardless of social strata or income people will create more wants and more problems. Problems are what give us the impetus to struggle on problem solving, resolving, and living in the solutions you make. Most of our troubles are those of our own creation. It is however important to maintain a positive outlook and a positive energy even in the face of adversity. So how do you maintain a positive outlook? Is it through religious faith, faith in your family, counting your blessings?

I maintain to have positive attitude as I've been struggling a lot through my life in such a young age but, I know that it's life and no one can control it but god. Think what made me how I'm today is that I don't really care what people think cause at the end of the day their not actually going through those problems,I don't really regret something I did cause if start to regret that's eat you're gone and your enemies would have the chance to hurt you so what I do is I say that I wouldn't do it again and that's it I learn from my mistakes but I really go hard on myself cause the only one that I'm going to destroy is actually me. I have a good sprite I'd like to laugh all the time never care for anyone's opinion cause they'll say you look childish and stuff like that but I don't care I just have a good time, have happy life and that's it really

It is impossible for anyone to remain constantly positive and upbeat. Knowing when you are losing your grasp on you positivity is key though. Thank you for your response.

How to have a positive outlook? Look everywhere and can you tell me if someone doesn't have any problems encountering in their life. I am very sure that on any social strata, even on high class or rich people, they do have problems. Maybe on health , on marriage life, on love, on friendship, on career. Any aspect. But people are very different. It is in the way we see or handle or face a problem. If we really think and mindset a positive outlook in everything we are facing then, we are really blessed. I know problems come your way but it is in thinking positive that we surpass and survive this life we have. Do you feel lucky? Aren't you lucky than people who are homeless, who are poor? So, just be positive. Hang on there is something ahead of you. Don't worry. God will provide. Just seek and you will find

I hope that approach works for you. I try to keep an optomistic outlook at all times, sometimes it is a struggle but I manage it. thanks for your response.
