All of us have had at least one day in our lives when we’ve done nothing but talk down to ourselves: we’re not good-looking enough, or wealthy enough, or talented enough. It’s okay, once in a while, but for some this habit becomes a lifelong form of self-torture. It becomes a kind of self-fulfilling prophecy.
Did you know the same thing happens when we focus our energy, and our self-talk on the positive?
No matter your belief system, positive thinking energy is good for you: it will increase your mental clarity, boost your immunity, and help you live a longer, more fulfilling life. It is beneficial to see the glass as half full. Like a mirror, the universe reflects back what we put out to it. Ever heard the saying “garbage in, garbage out?” The same is true of our thoughts. What we focus on becomes our reality … whether this is negative or positive.
The only place where your dream becomes impossible is in your own thinking ~ Robert H Schuller
It’s not just our thoughts, either. If we surround ourselves with positive friends, listen to encouraging and uplifting programs or songs, and eat healthy, nourishing food, this will also affect us in all the right ways.
Positive thinking is just like developing any other muscle in our body (the mind is also a muscle, don’t forget!) If we strengthen and condition it a little at a time, eventually it will be second nature.
Start small. Make a list of positive things in your life. Keep a notebook in your jacket or purse to write things down. Every negative thought which starts to cross your mind can be countered with a positive one.
If you’re a visual type, consider making a Positive Book – a scrapbook of positive imagery, sayings, and memories. Every time you look through it, you can be reminded of all the positivity in your life.
Remember when you were young, and your mother told you to “count your blessings?” Especially when you were pouting? She was right! Every one of us has countless things for which to be thankful. If we stop and think about it, we will usually realize there is more positive than negative in our lives.
Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same ~ Francesca Reigler
Meditation can also help us when it comes to positive visualization. If you like, imagine all the negative energy being poured out of a glass, then being replaced by everything positive. Make this a part of your day along with exercise and a balanced meal plan.
We all say that we don’t have the time. This, too, is a negative thought! How much time do we waste with on things like games on our phones, or mindless TV shows? If we have time for these, we also have 15 or 20 minutes each day to make beneficial changes. Positive energy doesn’t just happen to us, or come to us. It’s something we have to consciously think about and invite into our lives.
Remember that the universe will give us exactly what we ask for. It reflects all that we are. With that in mind, why not try to make your life a more positive one this year? If we imagine that something can be, then it can be. We can make it possible.
