If you want to become the best version of yourself and maintain a positive attitude in your life, you can do that and it is wise to proceed that path by making effort on yourself consistently with a positive and realistic can-do attitude.
Even though many people claim to take that approach but only a few people succeed in it. You can only be positive if you want to be. Same as Henry Ford quoted “You can think you can, or can’t. Either way, you’ll be correct!”
With that in mind, here we will discuss 5 reasons why and how to maintain a positive can-do attitude.
Expand your comfort zone
We often limit ourselves and our options in life when we choose to stay in our comfort zone. You can take benefits and experience the best possibilities in life only if you motivate yourself to live your life out of your comfort zone and see the world with an open-minded perspective. By that, we can have the best opportunities and alternatives that will help us to become the best version of ourselves.
Why: We need to expand our comfort zone because real growth takes place outside of the comfort zone. To maintain a positive attitude you need to keep growing in life. learn new things, meet new people and live your life to its full potential and we can not live your life to its best under the comfort zone.

How: We can expand our comfort zone by recognizing our fears and exploring new things. Find out what challenges you or what interests you and once you found yourself, you can never be lost again. If you are afraid of meeting new people, start by meeting them with your friends, and eventually, you will not feel the need to take someone with you but keep doing something you are uncomfortable with.
If you think about it, you can achieve it
People who believe they can achieve anything in this world have better chances to achieve it than the ones who don’t. These kinds of people have a positive outlook towards life and are more contented and happier generally. If you are going through a difficult time in life, would you consider the situation as a problem or a challenge? If you see the situation as a problem, you focus on your problem and think about the reasons you might fail, and if you will see it as a challenge, you will focus on how you can overcome it and become better and more productive.
Why: Every dream starts with imagination and if you can think about it, you can achieve it. Our mind is a very powerful tool so are our thoughts. We become what we surround ourselves with.
How: What we think, we become. So if you think you can’t do something, you are not giving yourself permission to even try. If you put your mind into learning something, you will learn it eventually no matter it takes you a day or a week. The same thing applies to maintaining a positive attitude. If you focus on the positive things in life, you will feel and become a positive person.

Overcome your fears
It is okay to have fears. We all have different types of fears. Some people are afraid of heights, some are of water and some are crowded places but the difference comes if you let them affect your attitude and lifestyle. Don’t let your fears control your life or let them affect you in a negative way, control them and move ahead in the most positive manner.
Why: You need to overcome your fears in order to maintain a positive attitude because as we have discussed above nothing can grow in the comfort zone. Fears also have the power to affect your life in a negative way so if you won’t control your fears eventually your fears will start controlling you and your life.
How: To overcome your fears, you need to work hard on yourself. Firstly identity your fears. Write it down on paper, what are your triggers, what affects you in a negative way, what are those things that stop you to grow and by identity them, you are becoming conscious of them. You need to work according to what type of fears you have. So the next time, you will face those, you will be aware and make a conscious decision. In the end, it is your choice if you want to be afraid or overcome them.
How you can, versus, why you can’t
It’s our personal attitude and behavior that affect our lives in a positive or negative way. If we focus on all the reasons why we can’t be a winner versus how we use our personal strength and positive attitude to achieve the best, only then we can make a change. If you think, you can!
Why: Our attitude towards our life decides what kind of life we are going to live or the life we choose to live. If we keep seeing things in a negative way, we will keep attracting negativity in our life. So if you want to attract positivity, think positive and be positive.

How: You can become conscious or aware of your thoughts by practicing meditation. (You can read the benefits of meditation here.) Meditation helps and teaches us to live in the present and when you learn to live the present you start to enjoy every moment of it. Most of the negativity is related to our past or the fears of our future and once you learn to live in the present, you will learn to get rid of your negative thoughts and have a positive attitude.
Use your stress productively
If you stress about things that simply means you care. We often pressurize ourselves in our life for the things, goals, and people we care about or if they are important to us. If you use your stress wisely and focus on making the situation better and work hard on it, you can even use your stress productively. We all should learn from the challenges we face in our daily life. Nothing is going to happen if we stress about it. Focus on facing it rather than repeating the same mistake.
Why: Every truth has two sides. It depends on totally your perspective. One perspective says Stress is unhealthy and it has many negative effects on our health but another perspective says stress is also related to a little bit of pressure and pressure helps us to do our task at hand more efficiently. Some people can handle stress and some cannot and it totally depends on the person. So it is totally up to you, how you take it and utilize it to your own benefit.
How: We cannot use our stress productively unless we find out the reason for our stress and to find out the reason we have to go deep within and interrogate ourselves and find out our trigger points. Are we stressed about the financial problems, because of the people we love, or is there any other reason?
So are you willing to maintain a positive can-do attitude and take a realistic and positive approach towards life? Are you going to try to make efforts to become the best version of yourself?
