Be the kind of person who sees a glass as half full, not half empty. Practice positive self-talk We all have a voice inside our head, and when things aren’t going well, that voice can be negative and critical. You can help yourself become more a more positive person by using positive“self-talk.” Instead of “I’m no good at math” say, “I’m smart. I can do this.” Visualize success Sports psychologists teach athletes to envision themselves making free throws, back somersaults, or 10-foot putts. You can do the same. When faced with a challenge, “mentally practice” by envisioning the situation and the steps required to accomplish your goals. Then visualize yourself succeeding. “If you say you can or you can’t, you are right either way.” Henry Ford Look to those you admire Identify people you admire. When faced with a difficult or challenging situation, ask yourself how that person would respond.
