You heard amazing stories of rags to riches stories, people who’ve turned their lives around and went from zero to hero.
Yet, even as you marvel at their success, perhaps, you never think that you are capable of such yourselves.
It is such negative thinking that keeps many at their low-paying jobs, stuck in their crappy little apartments and in their mediocre lives.
But, you can change your lives, simply by harnessing the power of your minds, specifically the power of positive thinking.
Like all things in life, learning to turn negative thoughts into positive ones will take time, but the process itself is really quite simple.
Stay fit and healthy.
A healthy mind needs a healthy body to reside in. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is one the fundamental ways to stay positive without any psychological involvement.
Regular exercise is scientifically proven to elevate mood and reduce stress. A healthy diet is also essential – make sure you fuel your body with the right foods.
Use positive affirmations.
Many of us are our own worst enemies, constantly pulling ourselves down with negative self-talk. Encourage yourself with daily positive affirmations and drown out the voice of negativity.
Choose your company well.
Negativity, like positivity, is contagious. Surround yourself with positive people who support you and avoid those who sap your energy and motivation with their relentless negativity.
The simple act of smiling is physically proven to help you stay positive and make you more happy.
Allow yourself to be open to humor, share a laugh with a neighbor or smile at the cashier when she rings up your purchases. You’ll be surprised at how good it’ll make you feel.
And here are more tips to instill positive thinking in you.
7 Days Program to Positive Thinking
You have a bright idea hidden somewhere in the back of your mind that you just can’t wait to test out. Of course, you’re not the only one with the bright idea.
So what motivates you to churn those creative or even inspiring juices to its utmost flavor?
It’s always best to set up a personal goal where you can accomplish the most in record time, maybe like mowing the lawn in an hour before the big game on TV.
A correct and positive attitude in whatever you do will make things easier, and even enjoyable.
Here are some tips to make it through the week even if you’re just sitting in your favorite couch. An idea takes time to form in your head and is always at work while you are busy sitting.
Having a bit of positive thinking can help you realize things that are never thought possible.
1. Take passionate action towards living your life by design.
Talk is cheap. Action = deposits in the bank of a passionately authentic future. Without it, passion is void.
This is a perfect example where dreams are made of where you start by tinkering with your mind, then with your hands. And if the idea weakens, you can always go back to it later until you finish it.
2. Commit to yourself as well as those you love to create powerfully a life you can love.
Instead of reacting, commit to creating from your heart and soul, out of love rather than fear.
Your dream will always be there, but a dream will still be a dream without motion.
Be amazed as the transformation begins.
3. Recognize and embrace the thought that each moment is perfect regardless of its outcome.
Every time you hit on something that may appear too extreme, why not give it a shot and see if it will work.
You will be surprised to see that there are other ways to get the task done in time. If you are not pleased with the outcome, decide to use that moment to learn from and make the appropriate shift.
4. Dwell completely in a place of gratitude.
Learn to utilize what you have in your hands and make use of it in the most constructive way.
Slipping into neediness will become less of a habit when you repeatedly shift towards gratitude, away from poverty consciousness.
5. Use a Passion Formula of Recognize/Reevaluate/Restore in place of the Shoulda/Woulda/Coulda whirlwind.
The former is based in increased knowledge and abundance while the latter focuses on scarcity and lack.
As you face people or tasks that may seem harder than scaling the summit of the Himalayas, allow yourself to realize that the task is just as important as giving out orders to your subordinates.
You would rather be richly passionate!
6. Keep humor at the forefront of thought, laughing at and with yourself when possible.
You may find yourself quite entertaining when you loosen up! I am yet to see a comedian ever go hungry even though his jokes are as ‘old as great-grandma’.
Life has so much to offer to allow you to mope around in self-pity. Humor is very attractive, very passionate: life-giving.
7. Believe that you are the architect of your destiny.
No one can take your passionate future from you except for you! Create your life authentically. As long as there’s still breath in your body, there is no end to how much you can accomplish in a lifetime.
The concept of thinking big is all about enjoying your work, which would lead to celebrate a discovery that is born within your hands. Watch everything flow into place with perfect, passionate precision.
It’s interesting how people get wallowed up by something trivial as learning to use a computer when nowadays that top computer companies are manufacturing software that even the kids can do it.
This does not mean to be condescending, but that’s the idea of not having any positive thinking in your life. You’ll just end up as a dim bulb in a dark corner.
So, instead of subjecting yourself to what you will be doomed for, make your path by taking the first step with a positive attitude.
Tips for Positive Living
Positive thinking, self-growth, thinking yourself to success – so much has been said about these subjects, but is it really achievable?
The truth is that the power of our minds to influence our actions cannot be underestimated.
Not everybody believes or accepts the power of positive thinking. But there is an undeniable truth that negative thoughts, words, and attitudes bring up negative and unhappy moods and actions.
Negativity breeds more negativity, a vicious, never-ending cycle that can only lead to failure, frustration, and disappointment.
Conversely, positive thinking will do the exact opposite; positive thoughts can only beget positive actions, leading to a happier, healthier, more successful life.
So how do we move beyond positive thinking towards positive living? The first step is always to decide that you can be a more positive person.
Many people cannot even move beyond this first step, coming up with all sorts of excuses (“I’m stuck in a lousy job”, “I’m never going to have a successful long-term relationship”, etc.) as to why they cannot be more positive.
But, know this, no matter what your life is like, choosing to be more positive is entirely your choice to make.
Next, you need to commit 100% to the idea of positive thinking and positive living at all times. Now this is harder than simply choosing to be positive.
This commitment requires you to remain positive even when things seem to be going wrong in every possible way.
But the truth is that the most successful people are those who are able to commit and persevere and ultimately move beyond mere thinking towards the life they have always wanted.
Positive thinking requires commitment, persistence, and hard work.
But once you’ve trained your mind to habitually remove all negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones, you will find yourself in a better position to achieve the success, happiness and wealth you’ve always dreamt of.
