Every morning you wake up, eat some breakfast, make coffee (maybe Bulletproof-style!), and get ready for the day. The one thing that’s probably missing? An affirmation to start your morning right.

It’s no secret that positive thinking can do a lot of good for your well-being, like reducing stress and anxiety and helping to combat depression, according to the Mayo Clinic. And giving your mind-set a sunny-toned makeover doesn’t have to be painfully difficult. A Thrive Global article reports all you have to do is ask yourself a simple question once you rise out of bed: Is the world is inherently good or bad?

Need convincing about the power of affirmations? The late, great boxer Muhammad Ali was a big fan. “It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief,” he once said. “And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.” When you think about whether the world is a good or bad place, you start seeing things differently.

“When you internalize every roadblock or mistake as a reflection of the broader world, you’ll end up interpreting more and more things as negative events. But when you look at things positively, you’ll enjoy your day more.” —Elle Kaplan, entrepreneur

“It helps to put things into perspective,” Elle Kaplan, CEO of an investment management firm, wrote in the Thrive Global post. “When you internalize every roadblock or mistake as a reflection of the broader world, you’ll end up interpreting more and more things as negative events. But when you look at things positively, you’ll enjoy your day more.”

Basically, you can choose to be happy: With the power of positive thinking, every day holds the potential to be a good one.
