Being Positive.

As much as we try to be positive all.the.time, negativity and doubtful thoughts always manage to creep in. Especially during times of physical, mental and emotional weakness. During these times, I try to take small positive thoughts, and repeat them over and over, or in my mind remind myself of all of the things I am thankful for. Putting yourself and your situation in Perspective is vital.

Below I just wanted to provide the simplest of thoughts and ideas you can incorporate into your thoughts and brainwaves when those negative thoughts do creep in!

  • Realize it’s possible, instead of telling yourself why you can’t.
  • Become aware of your self-talk.
  • Squash negative thoughts like a bug.
  • Replace them with positive thoughts.
  • Love what you have already.
  • Be grateful for your life, your gifts, and other people.
  • Every day. (before you get out of bed give thanks for all the good things in your life & before bed too)
  • Focus on what you have, not on what you haven’t.
  • Don’t compare yourself to others.
  • But be inspired by them.
  • Accept criticism with grace.
  • But ignore the naysayers.
  • See bad things as a blessing in disguise.
  • See failure as a stepping stone to success.
  • Surround yourself by those who are positive.
  • Complain less, smile more.
  • Image that you’re already positive.
  • Then become that person in your next act.

In our lives we are constantly bombarded with stress, negative people, situations, and bad environments. BUT it is what we take away from it, and HOW we choose to react to the situation that is before us. That is a choice, therefore CHOOSE to be positive. There is no other way.

Jot down some of these simple positive thoughts, the next time you need to take a step back, and breathe.

Positivity is contagious. Smile and laugh when it doubt :)
