20 Ways to Positive Thinking
20 Ways Of Training The Mind
On Positive Thinking
Author: Rene Graeber
1. Start the day with cheers and smiles.
Your whole day depends on how you greet the morning.Therefore,as long as
you welcome it with energy and high spirits,everything will go okay. You donít
want the rest of the day to get ruined, do you? Come on, smile! It doesnít
cost anything but is worth everything.
2. Ask for guidance.
Only God knows what we will be having on the day ahead of us.He will surely
appreciate a few minutes of praying and asking for guidance from Him. Also,
have faith on Him that He is more than willing to grant our requests as long as
it is for our own good. With God as our guide, we donít have any reason not to say
and believe in the thought that I can do this.I can make it through this day.
Nothing is impossible. After all, God is with me.
3. Plan the day ahead.
To avoid mistakes that will cause negative output on your daily activities that
will later on become negative thoughts, it is better to plan your work first; after
which, work your plan.Make sure today's goals are clearly defined and absorbed
by your mind. This can be done even before you get out of bed each day,just so
immediate addressing issues as they arise can be avoided.
4. Keep your mind focused on important things.
Set goals and priorities for what you think and do. Visualize practicing your actions.
Develop a strategy for dealing with problems. Concentrate on things that need to
be taken seriously, but at the same time, take time to relax and enjoy.This way,
favorable results may take place.
5. Be detached from the outcome.
They say that life is like a Ferris Wheel; sometimes, youíre on the top, and
sometimes at the bottom. This means that there will be times in our lives
where some things would not turn out according to what we want them to be.
Don't be annoyed if you don't get what you desire. However, do your best in
everything you do. Only, donít get too attached on the probable results that
may only cause disappointments and upsets.
6. Try new things and challenges.
See learning and changes as opportunities. Thereís nothing wrong in
changing attitudes and routines as long as they are for the good and
improvement of who you are and what you do.Doing new things may
include considering more options for a project, meeting new people
from different places, asking lots of questions. Through this, the flow
of thinking is directed to improvement and negative thoughts will
be easily eradicated.
7. Balance your desires.
We live in a place of opposites and duality Ė pain and loss,pleasure
and pain, light and dark, male and female, love and hate. This is how the
cycle of life goes. We can never have all the good things in life at the same
time. In love, there will always be someone who gets hurt. In wealth, there
will always be people who will not be fortunate enough. Measure and moderation
is the primary key.
8. Be realistic.
Make sure that what you want is something possible. Hoping for something
to happen which would never really materialize in real life will only bring you
disappointment. For instance, you wish to lose weight.Therefore, you have to
set a goal and act on appropriate measures within a period of time to achieve
what you wish. Hey, No one can get slimmer overnight.
9. Keep track of your mental and physical health.
This way, you will know how far you can keep believing.Know yourself. There
is no other person in the world who can tell who you really are. Know your passions,
favorites,and principles. Spend some quality time by yourself Ė reading,listening
to music, day dreaming, and the likes. If you know yourself completely, you will be
aware of how far can you go physically, mentally, and emotionally.
10. Love yourself.
Before you expect for other people to love and adore you, it is always you who needs
to love yourself first. Make a positive commitment to yourself, to learning, work, family,
friends, nature, and other worthwhile causes. Praise yourself as much as you praise
others once in a while. When you start feeling confident about yourself, positive
thoughts will naturally flow to your mind.
Enjoy. Have fun. Looking at the brighter side of life starts with entertainment and
pleasure. Laughter is the best medicine,so they say. Whether your illness is
physical or emotional, a few laughs and giggles can help you throw away heavy
baggage such as anxiety, disappointment,or nervousness.
12. Keep a list of your goals and actions.
Familiarize yourself with things you want to accomplish and with the ways you
must undertake to complete them. By the time you are certain of what you want to do
and carry out in your life, a stronger mind and will power will exist within you.
13. Associate with positive people.
In every classroom, work place, or simply anywhere you go where there are groups
of people, look for optimistic ones. There are lots of them, Iím sure. Associate with
them, hang-out, discuss matters. They can help you build self-confidence and
14. Make it a habit to ask questions.
This is not equal to dumbness and ignorance; rather, it is associated with seeking
more information and understanding matters clearly.With more knowledge, there is
also more power.
15. Be open.
We have to accept the fact that we donít know everything. And that we are continuously
learning in every place we go, with every people we meet as everyday passes. We
should not close our minds to new ideas and information that comes our way. Our
mind is so spacious that it is impossible to fill it up completely. Thus, we should
accept worthy things that may help us become better and brighter persons.
16. Have trust in other people.
Although it may seem difficult and risky to give trust to just any people, when you
believe in them or confident on what they are doing for you, doubts and negative
judgments on them will be unnecessary. Also, it will bring harmonious relationships
between you and your colleagues.
17. Forgive and forget.
Mistakes and failures are the root causes of negative thinking.If we somehow learn
to let go of all the pain, agony, and fear we try to keep inside our hearts and minds,
then there will be nothing more to block our clear thoughts from being expressed.
Forgive yourself for committing mistakes and forget these mistakes.
18. Learn from experiences.
Learning inside the classroom is different from learning outside it. In school, one
learns the lesson first before taking an exam; while in real life, one takes the test
first before learning the lesson. This test in the real life is our experiences. If we
failed in that test, i.e. the experience is not so good, we study the situation and
learn the lesson. From here, we can avoid committing the same mistake twice.
19. Count your blessings.
Focus on what you have rather than what you donít have. Absence of our desires
will only bring discontentment and disappointment that will only waste our time. Instead,
be thankful and appreciative with all the blessings we receive.
20. Kiss your worries goodbye.
At the end of everyday, before going to sleep, there is no need to keep bad
experiences and unhappy moments that had happened in the day within you.
Let them go, throw them out of the window and kiss them goodbye. Dream
sweetly. As a new day unfolds, new hope arises. Keep believing. Always
