It’s All About the Point of View: How to Concoct a Positive One!

In writing, point of view is critically important to reader engagement. In life, the point of view you adopt every day is the lens through which you and the world interact. On days when you might not be feeling up to facing challenges, try concocting a positive outlook and watch what happens with all of your interactions. You’re looking for the good in situations. Positivity is contagious. Suddenly, the actions and interactions around you are more affirmative, too. There is psychology behind this involving psychological well-being, but you don’t need to make it a study. Just enjoy the change of outlook you just brought to your circle of the planet. 

  • Compliment others where appropriate.
  • Listen attentively.
  • Laugh when you have the opportunity.
  • Make mental notes of the good in life.
