Being Positive

07Apr10

I finally got it, what actually negative thinking means.

..talking about a coworker behind his/her back or believing you “can’t” do something.. is negative thinking.

and why to be positive?

When you allow yourself to become immersed in positive thinking, you will start to see it affect other aspects of your life. For example, instead of feeling “inconvenienced” by merging traffic, you’ll allow someone to easily merge in front of you and feel great about it. They might even wave or mouth “thank you”. At a grocery store when you have a cart full of groceries and the person behind you has only one or two items you may find yourself saying, “please go ahead of me since you only have a few items” and that person’s gratitude will make your day. You’ll find yourself actively thinking about others and your contribution to their positive experiences will have a huge affect on your eternal happiness.

It really opened my eyes and I can see why I have to be positive.

I worry a lot about my schoolwork and I know it doesn’t make things better. I want to change it.

Step 1: Admit You Are Negative
The first step to changing your life is to admit that you are negative or that you have negative thoughts. Whether talking about a coworker behind his/her back or believing you “can’t” do something; these contribute to a non-healthy lifestyle.

Step 2: Be Determined to be Positive
Once you’ve admitted you are negative, or at least have some negative tendencies, you can resolve to changing the way you think. Become conscious of your daily thoughts and when a negative thought enters your mind, quickly turn it around. Instead of “I don’t think I can do that,” think “I love a new challenge and will conquer this one” or “I can do this no matter how hard it is.” Instead of “I’ll do this later,” think “By getting this done now I can have it accomplished.” Eliminate words like “can’t” from your vocabulary and replace them with “can”. Start to say positive things about other people. Start to think positive things about other people. “Wow, that was really nice what he/she did.” When presented the opportunity to comment on someone else, refrain from saying anything bad.

Step 3: Spread Your Positiveness to Others
Put your new positive thinking lifestyle into action. Take time out to write down the top 10 things you love about your partner and give that list to him/her. When you experience good customer service, take time to write a note or email expressing your gratitude. Practice spreading your positiveness to others and it will grow.
