A life with optimism revolves around the concept of having a better attitude on different situations in our lives especially the not so good ones. Being optimistic may just involve thinking of good thoughts; but living well includes surrounding yourself with good things and good people. A rule of thumb on living with a healthy life is by transforming your positive thinking into constructive thinking. The difference about positive thinking and constructive thinking is that the first one is simply seeing favorable outcomes and the best in all things.
In constructive thinking, you do not only put yourself into the arena of optimism by expecting things to be good. Constructive thinking gets you into the proper frame of thinking by enhancing your ability to find answers to your problems with positive methods. So when you have all the optimism in achieving your goals by expecting things to lean to the direction you want it to be, you do not just stop there. You may already have the better attitude of attaining your goals but it would not be of any good if you have not organized your means of getting to it.
As in the case of a construction company owner who is optimistic that he will get the job contract, his job does not stop there since the important part of getting the deal is to make a good proposal in the first place. And so in constructive thinking, you go beyond the proposal part. This time you put on a mindset of structuring a blueprint of how you can sway the client through your words and actions. And just like in your overall well being, you do not simply get good health without living a healthy lifestyle.
You may have the optimism of maintaining your ideal weight by eating the right amount of calories but then you go out late at night to clubs with smoking people around you. It simply defeats the purpose of having good health as you allow yourself to be destroyed by external forces. Having better attitude towards life means that you need to eliminate unnecessary habits and routines. Most importantly, living a good life does not only mean putting good things into your head but it also includes setting your mind free of the clutter.
