When was the last time you smiled just for the sake of smiling? I’m smiling at you now, go on, smile back. You might do it more often if you knew that smiling was making you happier and opening doors to your success.
That’s right! If you made all the facial expressions you make when you’re excited, elated, and thrilled, even when you don’t actually feel those emotions, the truth is that you’d see an immediate improvement in your mood.
Why does this matter? Because you already have the raw talent and skills, only that when it comes to feeling motivated and accomplishing your goals, mood is everything.
Smile to yourself right now. Why does something as simple as a grin have so much power to motivate you?
Your mind interprets the events we experience within the framework you set for yourself, meaning that whether an experience is positive or negative is largely determined by our mood and state of mind.
Think about it: the emotion and meaning our minds attach to events ultimately counts more than the experiences themselves, since they condition our willingness to experience and pursue them.
A positive state of mind can be what motivates you, and a negative state of mind what holds you back. Look for a positive solution to everything and you will see some beautiful changes in your life.
What, you are already that type of person (sorry to categorize you)? Then, share the love, make someone smile and teach them how to keep smiling.
