- Fill your vocabulary with words that encourage success, strength, encouragement, motivation and optimism.
- Learn from your mistakes. Thinking positively doesn’t mean you should block out all negativity. We all make mistakes—learn from them. Reflect on how the situation could have been handled differently and adjust accordingly.
- Recognize your own contributions. Sure, group efforts are good, but that doesn’t mean you should discount your value. If you made positive contributions to a project or task, pat yourself on the back!
