What is Positive Productivity
It’s not a question of faith anymore, science has proven that positivity increases your productivity and makes you more efficient at creative problem-solving. There’s a whole field of positive psychology that focuses on optimizing your mindset so that it enables you to become the best possible version of yourself.
Most of us know about the happiness hormones or neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine. While serotonin is the neurotransmitter that makes us feel happy per se, dopamine is a neurotransmitter that gets released by our brain’s reward center. That means that our brain rewards us with dopamine whenever we do something useful from an evolutionary point of view.
Positivity has a major impact on productivity
Positive thinking enhances problem-solving skills and boosts productivity. Participants who were exposed to positive imagery were able to think of significantly more solutions than the rest of the participants. Participants in the last two groups provided fewer solutions than the participants who haven’t watched any clips beforehand.
We may conclude that people who were inclined to feel good were also motivated to see more possibilities and solutions to the problems they faced. That proves that positive thinking significantly increases the problem-solving capacity and makes you more creative and much more productive.
Positive thinking motivates you to succeed
Stay positive and believe in yourself would motivate you to success. Motivation is also a huge factor in productivity. Simply put, motivation fuels willpower. Without it, people tend to passively accept what happens to them. They simply react rather than taking a proactive stance and taking control of their lives. It’s simple - If you don’t believe that you can succeed, you won’t even try and if you don’t even try, you’ll never score.
Staying optimistic is a form of mental hygiene and it takes discipline to practice it. However, your productivity levels skyrocket if you maintain a positive attitude so it pays off.
Truly productive people are optimistic about their potential to influence their environment
Successful people don’t just analyze problems and complain about how hard life is. They look for solutions instead. Faith in their potential to impact their surroundings is what distinguishes them from the rest.
Believing in yourself is what gives you the power to make the change you wish to see happening in your life. People who are brave enough to defy the negative inner critic enjoy what they do more than those who focus on the negative aspects of their actions. That way optimistic individuals create a loop of positivity wherein they’re successful because they enjoy what they do and vice versa - they enjoy what they do because they’re successful.
