How many times have we found ourselves feeling disheartened, sad, upset or think that this is the end, and that we have lost and can never succeed again because of which we stop trying? Fear, gloom, unhappiness, depression, disappointment, failure and anger are all negative feelings which bring about negative energies and influence your work and lifestyle. Since the mind does not usually judge or examine thoughts and opinions before accepting them. If what it hears, sees and reads is always negative, it accepts this as the standard way of thinking and behavior. These days negative thinking appears to be more prevalent than positive thinking. It seems that with most people positive thinking requires some effort, whereas negative thinking comes easily and uninvited. This has much to do with education and the environment one has been living in. If you have been brought up in a happy and positive atmosphere, where people value success and self-improvement, then it will be easier for you to think positively and expect success. If you have been brought up under poor or difficult situations, you will probably go on expecting difficulties and failure. If you believe that you are going to fail, you will unconsciously sabotage every opportunity to succeed. If you are afraid of meeting new people or having close relationships, you will do everything to avoid people and relationships, and then complain that you are lonely and nobody loves you. The mind is neutral energy. The way you think determines whether the results are positive and beneficial or negative and harmful. It is the same of energy acting in different ways. Thus in order to change this attitude you must be willing to put energy and time to pursue positive thinking, in order to change your mental attitude. Positive thinking is a mental attitude that admits into the mind thoughts, words and images that are conductive to growth, expansion and success. It is a mental attitude that expects good and favorable results. A positive mind anticipates happiness, joy, health and a successful outcome of every situation and action. Whatever the mind expects, it finds.
All of us affect, in one way or another, the people we meet. This happens instinctively and on a subconscious level, through thoughts and feelings transference, and through body language. People sense our aura and are affected by our thoughts, and vice versa. Is it any wonder that we want to be around positive people and avoid negative ones? People are more disposed to help us if we are positive, and they dislike and avoid anyone broadcasting negativity.
Negative thoughts, words and attitude bring up negative and unhappy moods and actions. When the mind is negative, poisons are released into the blood, which cause more unhappiness and negativity. This is the way to failure, frustration and disappointment. This leads us to positive thinking, although not everyone believes in positive thinking, and scoff at the people who believe in it and accept it. Also among the people who believe in it, because not everyone knows how to effectively use it.
Bringing about positive thoughts is very easy. Simple steps towards gaining that attitude are visualizing success instead of failure, repeating positive thoughts and words in your mind and expecting positive results. So each time you catch yourself thinking about something negative ignore it and think about something positive instead. So every time something bad happens tell yourself that whatever happens happens for your own good, and what may seem bad today may have good results in the future and you learn from it so it’s a win-win situation.
When the attitude is positive we entertain pleasant feelings and constructive images, and see in our mind’s eye what we really want to happen. This brings brightness to the eyes, more energy and happiness. The whole being broadcasts good will, happiness and success. Even the health is affected in a beneficial way. We walk tall and the voice is more powerful. Our body language shows the way you feel inside. It affects the way we carry out our jobs and also the outcome. So bring about this one change of positive thinking in your daily life and you will see results!
