Don't you worry about your temperament. You are fine. It is just the way of the world. And we cannot complain about the way of the world either. If everything was perfect life would have ben so boring. It is these things that seem to get on your nerves that make life interesting to me.

It could be useful to adopt an attitude that can see the joke in these situations.

How to improve positive thinking?

Discuss this question

Question found in Physics
Ha ha ha; This is not physics, not even metaphysics! But as they say a rose by any other name smells as sweet and still have thorns. Your question is quite like a beautiful rose. It would be great if more people concentrated on positive thinking.

Well, This question itself is a very good start. Wishing and deciding that positive thinking must be improved. It is not at all difficult if you put your mind to it.

1. Every coin has two sides. Look always for the good side of all the coins.
Every person we come across have good and bad traits. Try hard to find the good traits and encourage that. My mom would not tolerate any negative remarks or gossips about our neighbors. She would counter these by pointing some good aspect in others. We should discourage others gossipping.

2. Look at the silver lining of the clouds. Looking at the world around us - say a plantation - we can have negative and positive thoughts. Negative like how boring this is and positive is like how productive and profitable this land is. Same way looking at a grass land we may say how useless - negative - or how beautiful - positive.

3. Some People often complain on what a bad turn they had, how unlucky they are, always discontented with their life. This is negative. But the very people can find plenty to be happy if they look closely. Count your small blessings. Actually they are uncountable.

4. Being contented leads to peace and joy in life. We can keep smiling. The best way for positive thinking is to keep smiling always. I am sure you will find life quite enjoyable by improving your positive thinking
