Positive thinking: a weapon against our pessimistic society
But, I would like to reveal a simple trick.
Instead of being afraid of not reaching your goal, imagine yourself in the situation where you’ve finally got it. I assure you this pleasant feeling will have a positive impact on your efforts!
The society of the third millennium is definitely more frenetic and pessimistic than in the past. We want and demand more things, we don’t live in a simple way and we are constantly influenced by TV and social networks who tell us what we need to buy, how we should behave and how we should look.
HOW TO START TO BE POSITIVE IN A FEW STEPS
The more positive are your thoughts, the more positive your results will be.
But where to start?
• Don’t watch too much TV
• Don’t spend entire days on Social Network
• Don’t play the victim!
We must remember that if we keep on being pessimistic, we’ll only attract more negativity.
Instead, concentrate on something you are fond of and when you feel more relaxed and in a good mood, you will also begin to have insights and ideas to solve your problems.
• Don’t criticize or judge others
Exercise to attract positivity in your life
Some months ago, I was taught this exercise to improve my positive thinking and I’d like to share it with you as it has been very helpful to me.
Now, analyze this thought and write down the positive sides that this thing brings to you. Try to make an effort and go deeper, looking for as many positive sides as possible.
You think you don’t like your job, that you’re settling for something that doesn’t really make you happy, but maybe:
• colleagues are nice.
• Working part time allows you to dedicate your time to other activities.
• Working full time permits you to put aside some money.
• The boss is very flexible.
• Customers appreciate your work.
• With the money you earn you can pay your bills until you find the job you like.
Read them when you feel frustrated!
If you can’t find not even one positive side, maybe it’s time to be courageous and try to change something.
I finish this article with a quote by Allen Klein, and if you have any doubts about positive thinking you can leave a comment below!
“Your attitude is like a box of crayons that color your world. Constantly color your picture gray, and your picture will always be bleak. Try adding some bright colors to the picture by including humor, and your picture begins to lighten up.”
Ciao! Had a really good read. Very simple and informative. 🙂
I am definitely guilty of being sucked in by the news sometimes and look at the clock to see I’ve lost an hour feeling negative watching the news! I try and make sure I have one or two social media free days a week as it’s just too much sometimes. Thank you for these tips, I really need to feel more positive, it’s been a hard year, but I feel better when I feel optimistic about things!
I couldn’t agree more ! Great article 🙂
totally agree with your tips, a big one for me is TV and social media. We have started not watching TV through the week, and leaving our phones turned off on the weekends – it has been a big improvement on our moods!
Mindset is extremely important. Often the way we see things changes how we interact with other people. I am a firm believer in positive thinking and also in gratitude. We may not like our boss for example, but if we can still learn to be grateful for what they do, it may change our interactions and improve our relationship. I once worked for an attorney who I had a big conflict with and after I did meditations on gratitude, I saw all the good things she tried to do. Now, years later, we don’t work together, but she is a mentor and a friend.
Very encouraging and interesting. Thanks for sharing
I love that the first two tips were all about shutting out the negative media that has become so pervasive today.
So true! I can really relate to the finding positives exercise as well, I’ve been doing that a lot lately!
I love this!! More people need to read this (and stop watching the news hehe) <3
haha exactly! 🙂 thank you Sandy 🙂
