6 Tips To Have a Positive Mindset
Never miss the early morning good news
Just as Breakfast is an important meal of the day, that is how good news is the important news of the day. I am not referring to checking the morning show on TV, no not that. Start your day off by talking positive things. Look at the mirror, and give yourself the good news. Let’s take for instance “I am going to do great things today”, and “I am the most intelligent person”, “today will be a good day”, etc… even if you feel silly doing this every morning, you are gradually programming your mind and remember, whatever you think, you will eventually become. So never leave the house without telling yourself how good you are. It will boost your self confidence too.
Focus on the good things
Whenever you encounter a challenge, focus on the benefits no matter how little or important they are. For instance, your favorite shoe you wanted to wear for a meeting gets spoilt; just see it as the opportunity to get to wear the other shoes you have neglected. No matter how bad you feel, there is always something to laugh about
Listen to empowering materials
In this morden world, we have access to almost everything we want to learn. If you don’t have time to read a book, you can listen to podcasts and audiobooks while working, running or driving. Some of the best empowering materials include Tony Robbins’ seminar, audiobooks and podcasts.
Learn from every failure
There is no such thing as the perfect person, so you shouldn’t kill yourself over your mistakes. Nobody is above mistake. Learn from your mistakes and past failures. Just because babies fall while trying to walk do not mean they won’t get up again and walk, it is all in the process of growing. Learn from your failures and move on.
Watch what you say
The words of our mouth are powerful. Your words create your world. Replace the negative messages with positives ones. Instead of saying “I am bad at this” say “I can do better, all I need is just practice” keep saying good things, and you will start seeing good things happening in your life.
Leave the past and focus on the present
When I say present, I am not referring to this very minute or the hour or today I am referring to the very moment. Just because you had a rough five minutes with your client doesn’t mean the rest hours of the day will be miserable. Sometimes the cause of negativity originates from a memory of a recent event or the imagination of a potential future event. Stay in the present moment, focus on what lies ahead and forget about your past.
Keep positive friends
If you are thinking negative thoughts most of the time, take a minute to evaluate the people you keep around. Surrounding yourself with positive people will help you develop your positive mindset.
