2. Condition your mind to see and think positive.

Should the project not turn out as you would have desired, learn from the experience and focus on what positive aspects came from the endeavor, be it a failed project or of meeting a new person.

3. Read a book or two on positive thinking.  By so doing, you will discover many different way to expand your positive mindset, actively seeking out like minded people and growing the power of positivity.

Also continue to avoid people that may hold on to the very type of negative mindset that you have dropped. You may rather seek to try and help them than subscribe to those failure ideologies. In so doing, you will begin to experience a growth in positive thought patterns,

5. Meditate on the positive. Whatever you allow into your subconscious mind will ultimately rule your mindset. Focus on the positive and your subconscious mind will follow suit and help create the positive energy that will be with you in all situations that you find yourself on life's journey.
