3. You will make better first impressions/ have more energy

There is just something about positive thinking people that attracts others to them. Some call it an aura or positive energy. Whatever it is, positive people are very friendly and affectionate.

They draw people to themselves like flowers draw honey bees. They have this positive field of attraction surrounding them.

When people spend some time with them, they feel energized and happy. They may not be able to explain it but they know and feel the positivity.

I have a few friends who are positive thinkers and every time I spend time with them, I come out happier and lighter.

We all know that being around grumpy and negative people has a negative effect on us as well. We avoid grumpy people as they carry a gloomy atmosphere.

The opposite is true about positive thinking people. They carry an atmosphere of happiness and joy.

4. You will be happier

The human body has the capacity to release hormones that make our lives happier. These are called happy hormones.

Basically, there are 4 happy hormones that the body can release to enhance the feelings of pleasure and well-being.

  • Dopamine: This hormone makes us feel good and gives intense pleasure.

  • Serotonin: This hormone reduces depression and plays a major role in getting rid of anxiety.

  • Oxytocin: Oxytocin releases feelings of intimacy and affection.

  • Endorphins: These hormones increase the levels of happiness and help to deal with physical pain.

These 4 hormones are generally released when you think positively, work out regularly, and express love and affection towards loved ones.

So you can see how thinking positive thoughts will make you happier, fulfilled, and satisfied in life.

5. It will boost your self-esteem and confidence

Positive thinking people generally have a very healthy self-image. They don’t think of themselves too highly, nor do they think too lowly. They are at peace with who they are and how they look.

Many people have issues with how they look, how they sound, and how others perceive them. It consumes their thinking and leads to anxiety and negativity.

Positive people don’t give much thought to how others perceive them. They are happy when others appreciate and acknowledge them. But they also don’t bother about critics and fault-finders.

They know how to navigate positive as well as negative situations with ease and calm.

6. It will help you feel gratitude

An attitude of gratitude attracts many blessings from above. Positive thinking people have developed this attitude through constant practice. They are grateful for every little blessing in their lives.

They always look at the positive things in life. They are not idealists. They know the realities of life but choose to look at the positive intentionally.

Everyone has a choice to look at the gloomy side of the world or at the beautiful side of it.

Positive people have made their choice. As you think, so shall you become. Gratefulness brings a certain peace and happiness.

Positive thinking people don’t necessarily have everything but they make the most of what they do have.

7. You will experience more motivation and courage

If you study the lives of great men and women in history, you will find that they were very positive indeed people. It is this positive attitude that gave them the courage to become history makers and world shakers.

They went against the flow and changed the world to be a better place. Even when things were not in their favor, they changed the tide with their positive thoughts and deeds.

The list of these people includes Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Winston Churchill, and the list goes on.

Where did these men and women get the courage to fight the great and mighty systems and empires? It came from inside them and was fueled by their positive and can-do-it attitude.
