2. Serve others: Take the focus off of ourselves .  This is a successful path to a positive mindset

3. Celebrate: As often as possible with others when things go well!

4. Keep a success diary you can look back on when things get tough.

5. Always do the right thing

6. Have Perspective: Winning sometimes feels like losing in the moment.  This is a long game

7. Do daily Affirmations. 

8. Give gratitude! Journal your own gratitude and give freely to other people.  Be specific!
