Authentic positivity means looking with honesty and accuracy at what is around you. You find real ways to navigate life’s challenges as well as embrace its joys. The honesty of a positive lifestyle helps establish new habits because you tell yourself the truth. You understand why you need to make a change and why it might be hard. But you also believe in your ability to get where you need and want to go.

2) You Are Flexible

In living a positive lifestyle, you have a fundamental understanding that if something isn’t working, there are other options to explore. This flexible approach gives you more space to think creatively and be nimble as you consider what new habits to cultivate.

Although you are flexible enough to make changes when necessary, you are also patient. In living a positive lifestyle, you give ideas a fair shot before pivoting. Your trust the process and devote ample time to a new challenge. And that maximizes your opportunities to succeed in establishing a new habit.

4) You Are Grateful

As a positive thinker, you take note. You pay attention to the opportunities and joys of life with a grateful heart. Even when faced with a challenge, gratitude for your ability to make choices and changes supports your commitment to change. And that’s how new habits can take hold for the long haul.
