Possessing a positive attitude can help to push us on to achieve great things; being positive allows us to flower on the strengths of our situations, cutting out the negative weeds to reveal the path to go forward. The problem is that sometimes, we are unable to control our feelings; whether through emotions or simply because the environment we're in doesn't lend itself to our needs.

In this blog, we're going to look at how we can produce a positive outlook on our working lives and how office interior design can help.

How to harness that positive light? Here are a few tips:

  • Emotional intelligence can be developed, it isn’t something that you’re stuck with and have to work around. Firstly, recognise that your emotions are the principal factor in driving and motivating you, rather than being walls to scale when you want to achieve something. Being aware of how our emotions affect us in work offers a great base to start from; now it’s time to learn how to manage and regulate them so that they flow positively.
  • Failure is not an indicator that you’re wrong, it provides an opportunity to learn. Positive-minded people will have a belief structure at the heart of their working practices, and just because it may fail on a particular occasion, doesn’t mean it should be ripped up and re-written. It can be easy to get frustrated by failure, but failure can happen through a multitude of factors, not because the philosophy behind the belief you’ve built up, is wrong. Failure provides an opportunity to learn, to tweak, to actually strengthen your belief in what you’re doing. Heed that lesson, see it as a positive.
  • By constantly setting goals, you will constantly help yourself to feel positive in whatever it is you’re doing. Those who are able to think positive whilst under pressure still possess that need to achieve something new; it’s what sustains them. They use their goals to mark their development, to feel motivated and to stay on target. Having something to strive for will add substance and meaning to your working life; when times do get hard, you will have the positivity you’ve built up through the achievement of past goals to push you through.
  • Be thankful of those who help you in your work; giving credit to where its due won’t just help to create respectful relationships between co-workers, it will also help them to feel more positive about their role too. Being positive about your abilities can so often be mistaken as egotistical; thanking those who help you will show that you’re aware of their contributions and that perhaps, your positive attitude to your work is well worth imitating, making for an increasingly optimistic workplace.
