Being positive takes practice. Approach any new situation knowing you can succeed. Consider what would be a successful outcome. Think about your talents and how you are going to make it come good. You may have to try a number of different strategies before it works. When you do well, people are likely to tell you that you are lucky. They won’t have seen the hard work you put in. A famous golfer said, ‘it’s funny but the more I practise, the luckier I get’. The more positive you are, the happier you get but it takes work.
