A Chinese proverb says: ” You are what you think.” Your fears are not going to spare you and you won’t be able to take a step further without conquering those. So, the best thing is – face your fears.
Think positive or positive thinking is perhaps the tagline you see everywhere nowadays. Be it social media or rest of the world, everywhere you will see people urging you to think positively. Thinking positive does not mean that the mere power of thought to have a millions or billions, but enjoying all those who are around you and to be able to always see the bright side. Think positively means an essential resource that we need for successfully crossing the darkest moments, the inevitable difficulties in life.
Positive thinking is an attitude that is advocated consistently, and that’s what led to the demonetization of the subject, which is sometimes regarded as an easy and superficial approach to reality. But, positive thinking is more than that – it is a lifestyle that can be learned. Positive thinking helps us pass more easily over certain situations in our lives in a more optimistic, more confident and why not more beneficial for our physical health. Failures are part of life, misses do most precious achievements, and sadness now is happiness late. Try to teach yourself that perfection does not exist. If you run for perfection, you will not be making yourself eternally unhappy, but also those around you. The simplest thing to understand is discontent is the beginning of unhappiness.
Try to see the glass half full. Rather than just monitor the negative things in your life, it might be appropriate to look at positive aspects that they bring. For example, you cannot have the job you want it, but the good thing is that you have a job, and if you will be focusing on what you do, you could turn the situation into a positive one. If you have the habit of fixed some targets too rigid or if comparing your weaknesses with the strengths of others, then it’s time to quit the habit. People who know their strengths and working on their development, but at the same time are aware of the flaws they have, give much better results when it comes to its own assessment. Appreciate the effort you’ve made so far because this is going to increases your results in the future.
It is okay to judge things, but a judge on the basis of facts and not own assumptions. Study carefully the facts, occurrences, circumstances before drawing conclusive. Who knows if your drawn assumptions about something are terribly wrong because you might have drawn those without consulting the actual problem. Stop taking things personally. Many of us are sad and full of negativity because we take everything personally. If something is happening around you and you do not have anything to do with that, avoid being a part of those troubles. I agree that for many of us, it is a part of our personality, but for positive thinking, you need to give up this; stop being a part of everything.
To think positively you must free yourself from thinking in black and white, like “either that or the other.” You cannot have a decision if you think too much about something. Perhaps this is the reason, why smart people fail in their life. The habit of analyzing every single thing before implementing the smallest part of your plan can sometimes refrain you from doing anything. In such scenarios, you are going to develop the feeling of fear built upon “what might happen” in the case of unfortunate events. Do not think much about the future, but try to make your present better. Remember that it is statistically proven that people who think positively are more successful, are healthier, have better social positions and live longer than that depressed, full of negativity and pessimism.
