Thinking positively makes you stronger and more confident.
Positive Mental Attitude – PMA. It is proven that patients with PMA recover more quickly from surgery or trauma. People with positive attitudes are more likely to conquer diseases such as cancer.
We have thousands of thoughts every day, most of them are negative – learn to be aware of your thoughts and ‘pull yourself up’ when you catch yourself thinking negatively. Keep challenging your ‘inner critic’.
Notice how people respond when asked ‘how are you?’ The reply is often ‘not too bad, thank you’. ‘Not’ and ‘Bad’ are both negative words. If you catch yourself saying this, change it to ‘Good’ or ‘Great’. Consider the words you use carefully. Detect negative patterns and consciously change them. Adopt positive language so that it becomes a habit. (e.g. people who have achieved something – negative ‘it was a one off’ positive ‘I’ve done it once so I can do it again’)
“Become the change you would like to see in the world” Ghandi
Check your feelings regularly and pull yourself up if thinking negatively. Where focus goes, energy flows. Focus on what you do want, not what you don’t want.
There is no failure, only feedback. People who adopt this attitude are usually successful. If what they have done hasn’t worked then they learn from it and try something else. They don’t fail – they experiment to see what works.
Count your blessings. Be grateful for what you have. List at least 6 positive things that have happened during the day before you go to sleep at night. (a piece of work well done, a beautiful flower, a bird singing, a lovely sunset, something someone said, a new piece of knowledge, a delicious meal, a good deed, good health)
