I know it sounds trite, but having a positive attitude really helps. If you think something is crappy, you are usually right. The same goes for expecting things to go well. Does it work all the time? No, of course not. But, having a positive outlook overall helps even when things don’t turn out the way you want them. Looking forward to something helps keep you focused on why you are working hard toward a goal. Look for your New Year motivation.
My grandmother always kept a strong positive attitude, in spite of her debilitating arthritis. She greeted each day with a smile and prayer of thanks. Beginning a new year can be the signal to look forward to all the great possibilities that await you. Start with an attitude of gratitude and be motivated by being thankful.
Being gracious does not immediately bring to mind motivation. It is more likely thoughts of thankfulness and well-being. A gracious attitude can be motivating. Think how you feel when some one that you do a favor or other kind act is genuinely gracious. The truly appreciate what you have done for them and give you a sincere and heart-felt thank you. Does that not motivate you to go out and do another kind or gracious act?
