You always hear people say “think positive” “be positive” etc this is such a simple concept that many of us are not taking advantage of. It is a simple change of thought patterns that can create a dramatic change in your life.
The power of positive thinking is real and it doesn’t just have psychological effects but physiological as well. This means that your thoughts can affect your body. I have done some research into this and from my own personal experience I can tell you that this is real. For my chosen career negative thoughts mean injuries for you it might mean something else. Let me put it to you in the simplest form possible if you think negative you will get negative outcomes…think positive well you will get positive outcomes.
Your thoughts are things. Pay close attention to that sentence. Your thoughts are powerful, very real, and can be measured. Even the more reasons to pay close attention to what you think about throughout the day. Many of us have forgotten to pay attention to our thoughts, especially in the hectic lifestyles that we got accustomed to.
I admit thoughts influence the body.
Negative thoughts affect are toxic to your body. They cause muscle tension, weaken you, and create an acidic environment inside your body. Having negative thoughts you are sending out negative energy into the world and will undoubtedly attract negative outcomes into your life. Negative attitude = Negative outcomes.
Now Positive Thoughts will make your body feel more relaxed, you will feel more alert and aware. Having positive thoughts will place your internal energy in balance. Having pleasant or positive thoughts actually releases endorphins in your brain. Positive thoughts will send out a positive vibration into the world and will attract positive outcomes into your life. Positive Attitude = Positive Outcomes
Below are a few techniques that will help you:
- Ignore other peoples negativity: This is very important. Don’t let someone elses thoughts and beliefs become your own.
- Smile OFTEN! Having a smile on your face releases dopamine and endorphins in your brain which in turn will make you feel happier.
- Use visualization to image favourable life situations.
- Use positive affirmations: Affirmations are self-talk. I’ll cover this in another post.
- Once a negative thought enters your mind, become aware of it, isolate it and get rid of it.
- Live in THE NOW.
All what we are is the result of what we have thought.
