3 Steps to Create the Power of Positive Thinking
Do you want to feel more freedom, successful, and like ya got control of where you're going in life? Well, let's get you on that road! Your mindset is the key.
This Positive Thinking vs. Negative Thinking graph illustrates the different results you can expect based on your cognitive process.
To help you determine which way you lean, answer these questions:
Do I give excuses for why I haven't achieved a goal - such as changing careers, launching a business, or moving to a new city
When I feel fear do I tend to retreat
Have I been told I have a negative attitude
Do I think a lot about the bad things that may occur, and it creates anxiety for me
If you answered yes to any of the above, you have at least a level of negative thinking. It's okay - most of us do!
However, if you want to create more success, less stress, and a more purposeful life incorporating a stronger positive mindset will dramatically help.
3 STEPS TO DEVELOPING THE POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING
1. Responsibility - instead of focusing on why you can't do something, begin to think of how you can make it a reality. My kids have it ingrained in their minds that I hate excuses. My hubby and I have been entrepreneurs for 3 decades, so our kids grew up working for our businesses. When they had a challenge, they'd call their dad, who would often say, "I don't know. Figure it out." Today, my eldest son co-founded a multimillion-dollar marketing firm, and my youngest is in college, preparing to start his own business. It's all about mindset!
Harness the mindset of taking responsibility for the direction of your life. Avoid the blame game because it's a waste of energy and will never advance you.
2. Stay in the Present - fear is based on the unexpected or the anticipation of what may happen. Most of the time, the thing you were scared of never occurs.
Recently, my assistant was up all night because of howling winds. The reason for her lack of zzz's was she was worried about a wild fire erupting. When I had her think this out, she realized she lived close to a freeway, and there are plenty of ways to escape. Also, her home is in a neighborhood, so someone would alert her. Do you see how her fear was wasted energy?
3. Push Yourself Out of Your Comfort Zone - I know I'm not the first person to say this, BUT it does bear repeating. Get out of your comfort zone! When we choose to stay in our safe place instead of going after what we sincerely want, it slowly erodes our confidence and self-trust. However, if you build an attitude of 'I can' and 'I will,' you'll soar! This is a positive mindset.
The more you stretch yourself and go after what you want, the higher your pride, success, and overall well-being become. Use the tools above to strengthen your positive thinking and see how your life evolves!
