I have always been optimistic and positive. I find that optimism comes naturally to some and can be cultivated by most. Here are a few affirmations to encourage an optimistic view point:

I choose this mindset:  If I think positive thoughts and take positive actions; I can create a positive outcome.

I believe, in full faith and trust, that I can and will create a life filled with hope for the betterment of all.

I choose to live life with a positive point of view and own it as my reality.
