Positive Attitude

Psychologist Lucknow
Optimists are proactive and less dependent on others for their happiness. They find no need to control or manipulate people. They usually draw people towards them. An optimistic’s attitude view of the world can be contagious and influence those they are with. (So can a pessimist’s attitude!)

Having a positive attitude is a socially desirable trait in all communities. Those who share optimism are generally accepted while those who spread gloom, panic and hysteria are treated unfavorably.

In life, these people often get the best jobs, raise the happiest and most fulfilled children and have the best relationships.

When the going gets tough, optimists get tougher.

A person with an optimistic attitude typically maintain higher levels of subjective well-being during times of stress than do people who are less optimistic. In contrast, pessimists are likely to react to stressful events by denying that they exist or by avoiding dealing with problems. Pessimists are more likely to quit trying when difficulties arise.

They persevere. They just don’t give up easily, they are also known for their patience. Inching their way a step closer to that goal or elusive dream.
A Positive Attitude Leads to Better Health and a Longer Life

Your attitude determines your altitude. Medical research has discovered that simple pleasures and a positive outlook can cause a measurable increase in the body’s ability to fight disease.

Optimists’ health is unusually good. They age well, much freer than most people from the usual physical ills of middle age. And they get to outlive those prone to negative thoughts.

It Important to "Manage you Time"

Goals of Time Management 
  • To be able to have control over your life - manage your time, don't let it manage you!
  • To be healthier and happier (less stress).
Seven Suggestions for Effectively Managing Your Time
1. Be Organized
·         Use time saving tools: appointment calendars, "to do" lists, e-mail, answering machines, file folders, etc.
·         Have an organized workplace (don't waste time constantly looking for your work).

·         Use your appointment calendar for everything, including listing study time.
·         Use "to do" lists for both long-term and for each day/week.

2. Plan Ahead (Schedule it and it will happen!)
·         Determine how long your tasks will take (do this before agreeing to take on a task!)
·         Consider whether any activities can be combined.
·         Determine if big tasks can be broken down into smaller tasks that may be easier to schedule (such as studying for exams and visiting the library as part of an assignment to write a term paper).

3. Prioritize Your Tasks
·         Use an A-B-C rating system for items on your "to do" lists with A items being highest priority.
·         Set goals for both the short term and long term as to what you want to accomplish.
·         Look at all of your "to do"s to gauge the time requirement and whether additional resources will be needed to accomplish them (if yes, schedule time to obtain those resources). Don't postpone the small tasks (a sense of accomplishment is good and overlooked small tasks can become larger tasks.)

4. Avoid Overload

·         Include time for rest, relaxation, sleep, eating, exercise, and socializing in your schedule.
·         Take short breaks during study and work periods.
·         Don't put everything off until the last minute (for example, don't cram for exams).
·         Learn to say "no" when appropriate and to negotiate better deadlines when appropriate.

5. Practice Effective Study Techniques
·         Have an appropriate study environment.
·         Split large tasks into more manageable tasks.
·         Read for comprehension, rather than just to get to the end of the chapter.
·         Be prepared to ask questions as they come up during study, rather than waiting until just before an exam.
·         Do the most difficult work first, perhaps breaking it up with some easier tasks.
·         Don't wait until the last minute to complete your projects.
·         Read the syllabus as soon as you get it and note all due dates (and "milestone" times) on your calendar.
·         Be a model student! (be attentive and participative in class, and punctual, prepared, and eager to learn)

6. Be Able to be Flexible
·         The unexpected happens (sickness, car troubles, etc.); you need to be able to fit it into your schedule.
·         Know how to rearrange your schedule when necessary (so it doesn't manage you - you manage it).
·         Know who to ask for help when needed.

7. Have a Vision (why are you doing all of this?)
·         Don't forget the "big picture" - why are you doing the task - is it important to your long-term personal goals?
·         Have and follow a personal mission statement (personal and career). (Are your activities ultimately helping you achieve your goals?)
·         Know what is important to you. (What do you value most?)
·         Have a positive attitude
If You have any problem to fallow these steps. Please Don't Forget to take professional help.

12 Rules for Self-Management

1. Live by your values, whatever they are. You confuse people when you don’t, because they can’t predict how you’ll behave.

2. Speak up! No one can “hear” what you’re thinking without you be willing to stand up for it. Mind-reading is something most people can’t do.

3. Honor your own good word, and keep the promises you make. If not, people eventually stop believing most of what you say, and your words will no longer work for you.

4. When you ask for more responsibility, expect to be held fully accountable. This is what seizing ownership of something is all about; it’s usually an all or nothing kind of thing, and so you’ve got to treat it that way.

5. Don’t expect people to trust you if you aren’t willing to be trustworthy for them first and foremost. Trust is an outcome of fulfilled expectations.

6. Be more productive by creating good habits and rejecting bad ones. Good habits corral your energies into a momentum-building rhythm for you; bad habits sap your energies and drain you.

7. Have a good work ethic, for it seems to be getting rare today. Curious, for those “old-fashioned” values like dependability, timeliness, professionalism and diligence are prized more than ever before. Be action-oriented. Seek to make things work. Be willing to do what it takes.

8. Be interesting. Read voraciously, and listen to learn, then teach and share everything you know. No one owes you their attention; you have to earn it and keep attracting it.

9. Be nice. Be courteous, polite and respectful. Be considerate. Manners still count for an awful lot in life, and thank goodness they do.

10. Be self-disciplined. That’s what adults are supposed to “grow up” to be.

11. Don’t be a victim or a martyr. You always have a choice, so don’t shy from it: Choose and choose without regret. Look forward and be enthusiastic.

12. Keep healthy and take care of yourself. Exercise your mind, body and spirit so you can be someone people count on, and so you can live expansively and with abundance.
