Here's how they pull out their sun out of the clouds…
I am totally honest and even though in this industry being honest is a (means of) disaster, honesty helps you keep out of a lot of trouble and less troublesome life is undoubtedly a happier life. At least this quality has helped me lead a positive life. Patience is very important. Also, when I get upset, I call my mom which helps. I think 'simple living, high thinking' is the key to positive life.
If I actually start thinking negative, I stop thinking. For me that's the best way to deal with it...never let my mind go anywhere close to that thought. If you keep thinking about it, it keeps on revolving around your mind like a buzzing bee and it can get pretty unnerving. Ignore it, give it time and it will be okay. You will no more be bugged by negative thoughts.
I keep the positivity alive in my life by always thinking positive. Although there are negative thoughts in the atmosphere, I don't let them barge into my mind. I always keep remembering that God has given me a good life...I wanted to be an actor and God helped me become one. I have so much independence to do what I want at such a young age. Also, when I help people it makes me happy, so I make sure I keep doing that.
When you are not working, you should do something you love- like sports, gymnastics etc. Prayer helps and physical well being also contributes to mental well-being. So in short, 'sports, prayer and good food' will go a long way to keep you positive. For me, whenever I'm tensed I rush to the gym and talk it out with my weights and dumbbells (laughs). That works so amazingly for me!
The easiest way to live happily is to stay simple. Keep simple expectations and life will be easy and nice. Many times people end up being pessimistic because their expectations are so high. If we keep realistic goals and take one step at a time then we tend not to fall on our faces so hard. The key is not to be overambitious.
The thing about positivity is that, you should be positive for yourself, keep in mind that its for your good. You should not try to be positive for someone else's sake. Just realize how if you keep an effort to look at the good and great in life, things seem so much better. This is the thought that has helped me.
