Positive mind gives you a positive life. A positive mind is greater than a negative mind. Positive thinking is the act of choosing thoughts and actions that support us rather than hinder us, and it brings the best outcome in any situation.
Research is beginning to reveal that positive thinking is about much more than just being happy or displaying an upbeat attitude. Positive thoughts can actually create real value in your life and help you build skills that last much longer than a smile.
A positive thought such as you can do it, will allow you to try- giving you a greater chance of achieving your goal.
Believing that soothing is impossible means you are too focused on the barriers to success. I remember a child telling me that she couldn’t play top level table tennis and therefore wanted to give up. She had no reason to believe in it because she looked at her life and saw the task as unrealistic. Her cousin was at a similar skill level but had a completely opposite attitude I asked her why she believed she could reach top level, she told me about other TT players and their success stories. Her focus was on possibility and not impossibility.
How Positive Thinking Builds Your Skill Set
The benefits of positive thinking/thoughts don’t stop after a few minutes of good feelings subside. In fact, the biggest benefit that positive thoughts provide is an enhanced ability to build skills and develop resources to use later in life.
Anything that sparks feelings of joy and love will work. You probably know what things work well for you. Maybe it’s playing the guitar. Maybe it’s watching a film or maybe it’s spending time with a certain person.
Here are some ideas for you to consider.
1. Meditation – According to me people who meditate daily display more positive emotions than those who do not. People who meditated also built valuable long–term skills. If you are new to meditation just close your eyes, breathe, and follow along.
2. Writing – If you write positive experience each day, you will have a better mood levels, fewer visits to the doctors, and you will experience fewer illness. This is generally called the power of gratitude.
3. Play – schedule time to play into your life. We schedule meetings, conference calls, events, and other responsibilities into our daily calendar. Why not schedule time to play?
When was the last time you took an hour to explore and experiment? Give yourself permission to smile and enjoy the benefits of positive emotion. Schedule time for play and adventure so that you can experience joy and build new skills.
