Thoughts about outlook..
I am sure you’ve been asked many times what your outlook in life is. And perhaps it becomes part of your conversation saying my outlook in life is…. It simply becomes a cliche. The dictionary defines outlook as “ a person’s point of view or general attitude to life.” Outlook is a point of view, how things are looking for the future, somewhere that offers a nice view or the view from such a place.
“Be the reason someone smiles. Be the reason someone feels loved and believes in the goodness in people. Roy T. Bennett
“I truly believe in positive synergy, that your positive mindset gives you a more hopeful outlook, and belief that you can do something great means you will do something great.” Russell Wilson
As I see it…
If you look for reasons to be angry, you’ll find plenty of them. Look instead for reasons to be joyful, and see them everywhere.
This day, this world, the events and people in it will reflect yourself back to you. Give joy, love, respect, understanding, creativity and good cheer, and get back much of the same.
Choose to be hopeful and you’ll find yourself putting your hopeful outlook into action. Almost like magic, you’ll also find yourself connected to others who share your positive perspective.
Even your small corner of the universe is so stuffed full of motion, objects, ideas, events and other stimuli you can’t possibly comprehend it all. Out of limitless possibilities, you choose your outer experiences based on your inner stories.
What kind of stories are you repeating to yourself? Are they stories of fear and despair, or stories of hope, of love, of giving and sharing and achievement?
Your outlook is more than just what you think of the world. It is what you make of the world, of your life, and you have every reason to make it the best you can imagine.
