3. Make positive observations about people.
Replace the habit of spotting the things that annoy you about people with one where you make small or big positive observations about them. It could be their great sense of style when it comes to shoes, how they always make you laugh when you need it or simply that they are always on time. Be sure to tell them that and in turn, you get positive feedback from them also.
4. Have a plan for positive action.
Always have a positive plan to put in action in any situation you find yourself. Don’t give in to negativity.
5. Do something nice for someone, even if you think they don’t deserve it.
The ultimate empathetic move is to be nice even when someone isn’t being nice to you. Compliment them. Give your attention to them. Send them a card noting something you truly like about them. Everyone is in pain of one sort or another, and if you can see through the hard wall to the pains underneath and respond to the person nicely, you will unlock the key to being kind.
6. Walk away from negative thoughts and negative people.
You can watch your own negative thoughts and turn your attention elsewhere, but what if you are surrounded by negative people who are bent on provoking you or making you feel like being rude to them, Consider that it is sometimes best to physically remove yourself from the situation. Sometimes separation is the key to becoming more objective and calmer in the face of upset.

Smiling is said to be contagious. Imagine if everyone smiled on their way to work, then the cities would instantly become happier places to be.
Genuine smiling and laughter not only make us breath better, but they lower blood pressure, heart rate, and also makes you look prettier and kinder.
8. Take it easy with the criticism.
Too much of criticism won’t help anyone, it just makes people feel and perform worse. Try encouraging them instead. It makes work and the people involved easier to deal with and more fun.
9. Try to understand the other side.
It’s easy to stick to your point of view. But you can gain powerful insights about the other person and yourself too by trying to understand their point of view. This also tends to decrease harshness and negativity and can make it easier to reach an understanding where both parties feel more satisfied with the solution.

A lot of people don’t do enough to work on their attitude.
