Three Powerful Affirmations to Keep a Positive Frame of Mind

Creative people are optimistic. They have to be, if they expect their ideas to succeed. But optimism isn’t blind faith; it’s a skill you can learn. Author Martin E. P. Seligman explored how optimists explain negative events in their lives, and he found that they usually say these three statements to themselves:

1. This won’t last forever.

2. This doesn’t affect every part of my life

3. I’m not necessarily to blame.

Adopt these statements to maintain a positive, creative frame of mind.
