The best weapon against defeat is having a positive attitude.
  • This young football player has enough enthusiasm for the whole team. His fiery positivity not only lifted the interviewer, but has touched those around the world on social media.

  • There is no question there is power in positivity. Here are six ways to have a more positive outlook.

  • Believe in yourself

  • Trust your knowledge, trust your ability and know you are the best person to live your life. Don't compare yourself to others, but do the best you can and do it your way.

  • Stay cool

  • When challenges arise, don't get upset, get angry or give up. Try to look at a situation and see what you can do to act instead of react.

  • Seize opportunities

  • Don't wait for things to happen, take charge of your situation. If you want good things in your life, you have to seek them out and do the work it takes to get them. Don't be afraid to try new things and take chances on things that come your way.

  • Have a sense of humor

  • Know that you will make mistakes, you will fail and sometimes you will have amazingly bad luck. It's OK to chuckle and shake it off. This helps us let go and move forward.

  • Be grateful

  • When things are tough, nothing will boost your mood like counting your blessings. Think of the good things in your life instead of dwelling on the bad. Thinking about what works, can help you find solutions for what doesn't.

  • Smile

  • Not only does smiling release endorphins that will make you feel better, it is contagious and will lift the mood of all those around you.
