Keeping a Positive Mindset

So many days roll by in which it feels impossible to stay positive. There are so many forces working around us each day that it’s easy to misunderstand people, places, or things. One trick to prevent circumstances not to ruin a positive attitude is to practice staying positive and happy when things are not going well. There are things that are uncontrollable and it is pointless to get upset at them. Learning to not get upset over these will help the day along. Staying positive also means no complaining. It is a very different outcome when someone changes every part of the day to be positive. The results are amazing.


My name is James Carter, and you are visiting breaking bad habits. I believe everyone has habits, good and bad. When I was 34 years old, I woke up and looked in the mirror. I was shocked, I had been drinking every night for so long, that I was fat. I weighed 355 pounds, and ran out of breathe and almost passed out to try and tie my shoes. This was the day I started to wake up. I had a long journey ahead of me, but with prayer, meditation, fasting and exercise I was on my way. It’s been 6 years since then I’ve quit most of my bad habits, and I’m down to below 200 pounds. I have to be honest, that day in 2014 I never dreamed I would have gotten this far. If someone like me can quit, so can you.
