Every one want to feel positive. However, negativity can easily gain a foothold and can start to dominate how we view life. Changing your mindset starts with changing your thoughts. The health of your mind has a direct impact on how you go about your life.
Changing a mindset has the same challenges as changing any habit. The first step is the hardest because it is a pain to change what we are used to. The good news is steady, constant practice for at least 3 weeks can help ingrain that new change in our daily routine.
Here are a few things to help influence positivity in your life everyday:
Purpose of Life
Everyone has a purpose but it's up to you to either figure out what it is or to give yourself a new purpose. Too many people are just wandering around clueless. When you know exactly what it is you want to accomplish, or where you want to go, you can be more intentional and focused about your life. This helps increase positivity because regardless of any challenges or setbacks, you are able to see the light at the end of the tunnel, so to speak, that goal you are aiming for. It also helps you see a bigger picture of your life, instead of focusing on the hits we deal with every day.
We tend to compare ourselves to people who are way ahead of us. The key to positivity is to look back at the people who are less fortunate than you and reach back to help them up. It helps you appreciate what you have, where you are, and where you've been. There is an indescribable sense of satisfaction in helping another person on their journey.
Focus on Positivity
Often we focus more on what we don't have rather than on what we do have. Humans need to learn from the honeybee, which is only attracted by sweetness, even when it's found somewhere dirty. We need to take a few minutes a day to think on the positive things in our life. It also does no good to worry. As my husband would say, "Don't worry. If there is something you can do about it, then do it. If there is nothing you can do then let it go because there is nothing you can do." Many times the things we lie awake worrying about never come to pass.
Regardless of what we are going through today, we need to be positive about what's next to come. Everything is temporary. If we are positive in our actions and efforts, that positivity will change our thoughts and have a positive impact on how we do things in the future.
Constant negativity makes us forget that we are in charge of our lives,a nd we decide how to live them. Every day is ours and we set the tone for it. Start each day with a power thought that you are in charge of your life. You may see small changes when you depend on others. You can see major changes when you take on the challenge yourself.
