If so, it’s important to realise that positivity often results from being deliberate. When you have a positive mindset, you’re deliberate about the people you hang around; you’re deliberate about the thoughts you allow into your mind; you’re deliberate about how you spend your time.

In regards to being deliberate, we look at 5 habits you can start cultivating to build a positive mindset. 

They stay away from negative people

While this looks like the most obvious step to take, a lot of people end up staying around toxic people. This is often due to social pressure and the fear of being alone. Positive people love themselves enough to steer clear of negativity. They understand that your social circle plays a huge role in how well you function in life, so they’d rather be alone if it comes to that. 

Positive people are full of smiles

A smile is the easiest indication of a positive attitude. Positive people always have a cheerful countenance not because they’re always happy but because they understand that happiness is a mindset. They also understand that happiness is contagious. Behaving in a cheerful manner boosts not only their mood but those of others around them.

They reject the victimhood mindset

In a society increasingly corrupted by the victim mentality, people who refuse to see themselves as victims are a ray of sunshine. Positive

people know that seeing themselves as victims strips them of their self-esteem and confidence. They understand that every human being has control over their own lives and has the power to determine how they turn out. 

Positive people learn to let go 

People who radiate positivity try to live in the moment at all times. They understand that there’s no use ruminating about the past and future. Instead, they focus on the present moment. This mindset prevents negative thoughts from invading their minds and crippling them with anxiety and depression. 

Positive people face their fears

Positive people understand that no one is immune to fear – even the strongest people – so they accept fear as a reality that must be faced. They know that the more they face their fears, the closer they are to reaching their full potential. Though they apply caution when necessary, they’re always willing to try new things. And they don’t let the fear of failure cripple them because they’re confident in their ability to always get back up.
