Much love for your kind donation,

Have you ever found yourself completely dumbfounded when you’ve heard someone say these four words?

I know there have been times when I have heard people describe themselves as positive people, even though (from my perspective) they appear to be quite negatively focused.

Now, before I get into the traits of positive people, let me first say that being a positive person is a relative concept. I think that lots of people believe that they are positive people because they are more positive than their families, or the people in their environment. And hey, that’s an improvement, so I applaud anyone who is rising above his or her life circumstances and reaching for a more positive perspective.

In fact, I would go so far to say that I am not the most positive person myself! I still get mad, stress out, complain and focus on unwanted circumstances. I’m just doing a lot better than I was when I was younger, which is why I now know a positive perspective is the key to having a better life.

In fact, it is my transition from being more negative to more positive that has enlightened me to some of the key components of what makes a positive person. I’ve seen both sides pretty clearly, which has made me aware of the positive-negative spectrum. I now can tell when I’m being positive and when I’m being negative, and that awareness has helped me deliberately make more positive life choices.

So, here are a few of the traits I believe a positive person embodies more often than not. A positive person:

1. Looks for the best in others.
2. Forgives easily.
3. Keeps his or her cool.
4. Is thankful for all blessings, big and small.
5. Treats him or herself with kindness.
6. Is optimistic and expects good things will happen.
7. Avoids complaining and gossiping.
8. Takes chances, because he or she is uncontrolled by fear.
9. Smiles, hugs and laughs with anyone, even strangers.
10. Builds up other people.
11. Is aware of good opportunities, and takes advantage of them.
12. Is tolerant and accepts people for who they are.
13. Helps others and gives back.
14. Wakes up excited to see what the day will bring.
15. Spreads joy intentionally.
16. Accepts his or her mistakes, and is comfortable saying “I’m sorry.”
17. Has fun every day.
18. Lets things happen and surrenders control.
19. Identifies the silver lining in negative circumstances.
20. Wants to make the most of his or her life.

Now remember, how positive you are is relative. None of us is perfect and will embody these traits every single moment of every single day. We’re human, and sometimes this happens. It’s ok, positive people have bad days too!

Just keep in mind that in every single moment of every single day you can choose negative thoughts and behaviors or positive thoughts and behaviors. The path to becoming a more positive person is done second by second, step by step and day by day.

So, if you making choices in line with many of the ones above on a regular basis, congratulations! You are taking daily steps as a positive person, and that’s awesome. The world benefits greatly from your positive choices and behaviors.

If you can identify any other traits of positive people, comment below and share the with me! I’d love to hear them.
