Being Positive

By Priyanka A Mathur on 2nd Dec, 2017

What's negativity?

Have you ever go through a phase where you feel like every day is a Monday? You wake up and snooze your alarm. Then you hit snooze again and you just don’t feel better! You go to your college and find your professor with the surprise test, a nightmare isn’t it?

Yes, we know that negative emotions can take away your productivity, creativity, and decision-making skills. You can’t reverse it.

The reason?

The impact of the super power negative is stronger than the positive.


It’s just easier to remember the bad things that have happened to us during the day than the good ones. So why is it, that our mind has such a negativity bias? The reason is quite simple: Our minds are actually trained to pay more attention to negative experiences. It’s a self-protective characteristic.

More gyan

Here’s awesomeness created by our mind to tackle this issue. We have the ability to break out of that negative feedback loop and we can actually retrain our mind to think positively. Understanding how the brain can refashion its own connections is what the positive thinking is all about.


Let’s consider a real–world example. The impact of positive thinking on college students’ life. “(Positive) Attitude, not ability, will determine your success in college.”

Some will mightily disagree with this notion written above, and argue that you must like something to do well. But our experience says that in a classroom,the students who have an ''attitude'' (negative thoughts) toward either the subject or the teacher do not perform as well as they should.


It's human nature to rebel when someone says you must do it. In contrast, we find that in elective courses, students have more of an interest and the results are different. They take part more in class activities, work on the assignments given, talk to the teacher more and learn the subjects in a better way.

Don't think that intelligence (ability) can be a substitute for a good attitude, because it will not.


Being genius is a boon that many people squander because of a bad attitude. The world is overflowed by half-baked geniuses, potential Olympic athletes, and talents that never made it. Why?

Because of (negative) attitude. Not ability.

How many great potential athletes, students, have you seen with great ability but whose attitude was poor? ''I don’t have an interest in the course and I am not learning anything from the class.'' And the excuses list gets bigger.

You must have heard these excuses over and over by those who fail in class exams.

Positive attitude?

How positive Attitude can help students? It creates the platform for career growth. If you don’t believe you can do it, chances are that you never will. But by just thinking positively it will help you to work better.

As an adult, positive thinking helps you to take your important decision by yourself. It makes you a good decision maker. If you stop negative thinking and just start performing, you can change your thought process and take small steps to reaching towards your future goals.

increases self-confidence?

Positive thinking helps to build self esteem and confidence and makes you believe in your abilities to achieve your dreams.

Why positive?

Everyone wants to talk to positive person. Have you ever talked with someone who is incredibly bitter? It wasn’t very fun to talk with them, was it? Don’t be that negative personality. Although you may be frustrated at many times, approach them from a positive standpoint. You know you will only get nowehere with negative responses. Research shows that positive thinkers make friends easier and faster than others.

Now what?

Associate and make groups with “positive” people from your college campus. Take part in study groups and even look to either socialize or join activities clubs or drama clubs in college.

Do you remember the Tortoise and the Hare story?

This is a cliché story that you most likely have heard since you were a kid. Yet, it is spot on. The two, as you review, were in a race. The bunny should have won hands down, no sweat. But, he overestimated his ability (fitness) and thought little of a contender with an awesome disposition.

Positive attitude beats aptitude every time. Over to you now.

Present a Positive Attitude.The most successful students chose to show a positive attitude by taking impossible tasks and got success. By doing this, they influence others in a positive way. And it is their positive attitude that helps them to overcome the struggle that stops others on their tracks.

If you have a positive point of view toward the issues you confront, they will become simpler to oversee and overcome.

Make the most of your life more fun. All things considered, if everything in your life can be brought with a grain of energy, you'll see that life is quite a lot more pleasant!

Create positive habits. Being sure keeps you far from hurtful things like smoking, overdrinking, taking drugs, and gorging particularly when you are under bad influence in college.

Helps in building solid, positive connections. Being confident will make you search for the positive qualities in others which will help you to frame positive relationships with them.
