After having some time (plenty of time!) to digest those first three #100ways I hope you are ready for more! Sometimes it takes a few tries to get into new habits, especially if they mean changing your mental outlook. But if you have been following along and trying any or all of the #100ways so far in your every day life, then #4 should be easy for you.
It’s easy to walk around life being consumed with the worries and what-if scenarios that plague our subconscious, and it’s okay to acknowledge and give them a moment to live, but the important skill is knowing how to let them go.
Have you ever walked into a room and sensed the intensity of a fight, someone crying or having just been frustrated, and you just know before a word has ever been spoken? That’s because all of our emotions have energetic properties to them that exist and range outside of our own bodies.
We can all think of a person we have met at one point or another that we were drawn to, wanted to be like, or felt a comfort or stability with seconds after the introduction. Think about the demeanor of that person. They most likely were fun to be around, happy, and most of all Optimistic. Placing optimistic energy into the universe will magnetize more happiness and optimism to your life.
There are only so many words that can explain the change and effect this will have on your life, so instead of challenging me while reading this post, TRY IT YOURSELF. The task itself is simple. Take time today to walk into a meeting feeling good about the information you have to offer, find the silver lining in the misfortunes of your day, write down ten things that get you out of bed every morning, and use those forces to drive you and emit your own optimism. Changing that energy around you will be a gift that you can then pass on to others. And for some it may not be as easy to do, but nothing worth changing for ever is.
“The greatest discovery of all time is that a person can change his future by merely changing his attitude”. – Oprah Winfrey
