A Staying Positive Commitment - Is This The Way?

Finish each day and be done with it! You have done what you could. Some blunder and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense - Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Well said Mr. Emerson, but who can do this each day? Is it really possible? Absolutely it is, but we all struggle with staying positive. And who can claim to  be an expert here? But we all know people who stay extraordinarily positive. As for me, I'm 70% positive and 30% realist. So what are the secrets of the positive? From what I've read it is a commitment to seeing things on the brighter side. They realize there are issues and problems and failures all around them, but they choose to not "go there". I could see this as truth - just saying, I'm going to look at the positive side of things... Instead of seeing half empty, you claim half full. Your thoughts?
