we all have millions of thoughts scrolling down in our minds . Whether it’s good or bad the voice of our minds is little hard to be silenced. But the dark thoughts screaming in our brain consume us and consume our community. But with the positive mindset and with the right techniques you can overcome these dark thoughts and turn it into something that will keep you going and keep you inspired . And if you are brave enough to make this decision you will improve your life drastically. First, you need to realize that nothing is worth giving up your life for, and that life is too short to miss on being really happy. So, why worry as the famous Walt Disney said ”why worry if you’ve done the very best you can, worrying won’t make it any better ”, and it’s true. so, stop worrying and stop over analyzing everything because the closer you look the less you see , the more you analyze things and problems the less you understand them .
So, here’s what you need to do
1-surround yourself with positivity
Positivity is in everything around us as well as negativity. But you get to choose what to see and believe. You can either choose to see the beauty of the flower or the spikes on it. You get to choose. so, choose to see the beauty of everything , the beauty of failing this time , the beauty of losing this person and the beauty of not always getting what you want . This is the beauty of life. Life is not always rainbows and butterflies. And if you want the rainbow you got to put up with the rain.”What is the difference between an obstacle and an opportunity? Our attitude towards it. Every opportunity has a difficulty and every difficulty has an opportunity” J.Sidlow Baxter. If a tornado blows your house down. You can choose to be glad to be alive or miserable because you have lost your home, all of your stuff and maybe even someone dear to you, or maybe both. But remember that being glad that you are alive is a way to pick yourself up again so you can make a new home, new memories and new beginnings. Maybe that’s what you needed this whole time a new beginning. An end to a chapter in your life. So, you can meet new people, go somewhere new and work harder. And remember that if god took from you things you never thought you would lose .He will also give you things you never wished you would have. You need to eliminate the negative people or the surroundings that facilitate the growth of these thoughts in your mind and allowing your soul to feed on it. You don’t want these thoughts to grow in your mind. But how will they actually grow?? They will grow if you fed them and maybe even produce more dark thoughts. It’s like an animal. It will keep growing. Some people will try to sell their negative thoughts to you. Don’t buy it. Don’t let it get to you or stand in your way. And something to keep in mind is that friends are like an elevator they can either bring you up or bring you down but you also get to choose which floor to press on. So, choose your friends wisely.
2-Rule your mind
You are not your mind. Your mind is just another organ in your body like your heart or your kidneys. You control your mind. If you want to move your hand right now you will move it. Because you want it do. Because you ordered your mind to do so. So, order it to stop the negative thoughts and the over thinking. Start cleaning your mind from the negative thoughts and create better thoughts for a better life. The reason these negative thoughts keeps popping in your mind because you gave it more attention than any other thoughts. You gave importance to these thoughts and kept repeating them to yourself over and over. That’s why your brain locked these thoughts inside of it, inside of you .So, these thoughts are originally your own creation. See what happened here. You were the one who let these thoughts in your mind in the first place and your mind just obeyed you. But it’s time to make some changes. It’s time to think good and to start making some actions.
3-Practice makes perfect
Here, I am going to teach you how to develop positive thinking and a positive attitude. The first exercise is so simple. All it takes a pen and a piece of paper. Now start writing down positive notes to yourself as ”I am strong ”, ” I can do anything”, ” Nothing can stop me ”, ” and I am in control of my own thoughts ” and place them anywhere you lay your eyes on. Hang them on the walls in your room; put them inside of your bag, in your car, on your mirror and basically anywhere. What this is going to do is reminding yourself everyday of how powerful and strong you are because we as humans tend to forget that a lot. We tend to forget our blessings and our powers and sometimes even question them. The 2nd exercise will just need about 20min of your time. Select a time in the day where you can be calm in loneliness .Sit alone, breathe in and out and wear comfortable clothes. Picture yourself in a happy place like the beach with the sound of the water going back and forth in your ears , the blue color of the sky too bright for your eyes to handle and feel the sand moving between your fingers . Sit there in silence. Worry about nothing and think happily. Do this at least twice a week and you will notice a difference not only the way you think but the way you feel too. These 2 exercises will help you during your journey of developing positive thinking. It may take a while but remember that nothing is IMPOSSIBLE. Because you were POSSIBLE.
