Are you a positive thinker?
I try to be as positive as I can, even when everything seems to go wrong. I try to always look at the bright side of life. Besides that, being around positive friends also helps.
The satisfaction I get from success definitely motivates me. The feeling you get when you pass a difficult exam, or any other challenge, is worth working hard for.
With positive thinking you can achieve any dream that may seem impossible. Staying positive is definitely the road to success and happiness in life.

I think I am positive, or at least show that I am. There is always something that may put me down but I try not to let difficulties affect my judgement and thinking.
Whenever I feel negative I try to reflect on people close to me or working with me, saying: “Do I want to let my negativity affect these people?”
I believe it is very important to share a positive attitude, as it can make any situation much easier to handle.
Moreover, I try to keep in mind that it is never too late to act. Life is a journey, not a race. By living it positively, you can achieve your goals and be happy in what you are successful at.
I would say self-belief and a pinch of ambition motivates success in life.

I try to be as positive as I can, as this increases the likelihood of reaching a positive outcome in any situation.
Furthermore, by being positive I believe I can influence individuals around me and create positive energy. Positive thinking enables us to overcome life’s challenges .
Something that really motivates me is working with young people who live in residential homes. Most of these people would have been traumatised in their lives, and therefore I need to accumulate positive energy to transmit a confident, understanding feeling, according to the different needs and circumstances of each and every person I meet.
