When you’re an aspiring YouTube star, it’s extremely important to keep a positive and motivated mindset! If you are positive and determined, then you can push yourself to do incredible things. Your viewers will also see your positivity in your videos and will love you for it!
Here are three tips for keeping a positive mindset on YouTube.
1. Surround yourself with positivity both online and offline.
A huge part of keeping a positive mindset is surrounding yourself with positive people. Simply put, if you are around negative people constantly, you’ll think negatively, and if you are around positive people constantly, you’ll think positively! It is incredibly important to have supportive, loving people in your life who encourage your passions and are there for you when you face challenges. Make sure to prioritize this kind of people in your life. Try to not spend time with people who make you feel bad about yourself.
Here is Colleen Ballinger’s (the “real Miranda Sings”) video, in which she introduces her family to YouTube. You can tell that her family is fun-loving, goofy, and supportive!
2. Listen to positive messages from famous YouTubers.
Every famous YouTuber has worked very hard and faced challenges to get where he or she is today. It may not seem like it, but YouTube celebrities deal with all the same problems that any other person deals with. They deal with their issues by staying positive and focusing on their work. Listening to the stories your favorite famous YouTubers can be very inspiring. These stories can remind you that YouTubers are regular people and that you can absolutely get to their level if you stay positive!

3. Use your challenges as motivation to succeed.
If people have ever made you feel like you aren’t as amazing as you know you are, then prove them wrong! Remember that when people say rude things on the Internet, it is a much bigger reflection of who they are than who you are. Take any negative energy and convert it into motivation to succeed. Show the ‘haters’ who was right!
Here’s a video that the YouTuber Miranda Sings wrote about her haters. Even though this song is a little ridiculous, it’s great because Miranda used something negative in her life to create something positive!
Remember that the only way to succeed is to keep a positive and motivated attitude and mindset! If you surround yourself with positivity, listen to famous YouTubers, and use your challenges as motivation to succeed, you will always come out on top.
