Staying positive is not always easy especially when times are tough. Poor health, loss of employment, family problems these are all very real problems for many people that can make you feel anything but positive. Here is a great way to provide an instant boost to your positivity. However it does require some preparation so I suggest you read this and take some action on the advice now so that you can implement it in the future.

It is a very simple idea but extremely effective. The first part is that you need to read. There are thousands of great books out there and some are really inspiring and are full of great ideas, thoughts and philosophies. You can read whatever books you find useful although for positivity of course there are some great self-help/personal development books about so read whatever you fancy.

Sometimes when you read a book it is as though certain phrases are literally jumping off the page at you as if they were even written for you as they can feel so relevant.

When you come across these inspiring words and phrases that have some real resonance with you then what you need to do is to simply fold the bottom of the page up (or write down the page number if you prefer). Then at a later point write down in a separate small notebook that special phrase.

In some books you will come away with dozens of phrases, other books might only have one or two. What happens is that over the months and years you are producing a book of inspiring phrases that are special and highly relevant to you. This means that whenever you are feeling down or negative in the future you can pull out your special notebook and open it at any page and be sure that you will close it feeling inspired and re-invigorated. You could also make reading your notebook for 5 minutes a day a part of your routine as a way to keep you motivated and positive each day.

The sooner you start this approach the sooner you will be able to make use of the book of positivity that you will have created. Don’t write this idea off because it seems to simple or takes time to do, it really is a great resource to have available to yourself and you will thank yourself for doing this in the future.
