Positive thinking is all about looking at the brighter side. Now everything has something good and something bad now it depends on us what we want to absorb. As they say, let say a bottle is half full and half empty. The one who is saying it is half full is a positive individual and the other who say it is half empty is a negative individual. Now thinking positive or negative won’t change the situation but it changes a lot on how we are going to handle the situation.
A person who is positive would handle the situation more confidently, happily and his chances of succeeding would be higher. Positive thinking person observe only good qualities of others, positive thinking person would work on solving a problem rather than only thinking of a problem, positive thinking person would see what good has happened in every action and situation not what bad has happened. The way we see things has a big impact on our relationship with others, on our success in life, and on our happiness.
Positive thinking has a lot of benefits here are the ways through which we can develop positive thinking:
Show your gratitude to others who make you happy: We must practice positive thinking by saying “thank you” to the people who either help us or make us happy. This could be anyone your parents or your friend or your security guard anyone who is helping you in your life we must show our gratitude to them. If we do it every day we will tune our mind to think about what good has happened to us and will be able to keep negativity away.
Always smile: Laughter is the best therapy. We must force ourselves to laugh. Initially, we might have to force ourselves to laugh but soon it will become our habit. Once it will become a habit you will tend to laugh in tough situations also and that will induce positivity and will help in reducing stress also.
Do friendship with positive people: We learn from two things one from reading books and the other from meeting people. So being with positive people will help us learn how to remain positive all the time. They might help us when we are negative through their positivity.
Do positive self-talk: What thoughts are going into our minds when we are alone is self-talk. Most of us do negative self-talk which means that we think negatively either about another person, or about the problem or about a situation, or about someone’s action. This negative self-talk is very harmful and it deteriorates our self-confidence and eventually our happiness. Instead, we must say do positive self-talk For example let say you have an exam tomorrow and you have not completed the course yet.
Now if you would say to yourself that what if questions come from the chapters which I have not studied, what if I won’t be able to write answers well, what if I fail in exam now this is all negative self-talk. This will make things worse.
Instead, we must do positive self-talk like I will just brush up what I already know and will read all the main points of other chapter or let’s take help from someone else, or mostly the chapters which I read they I will answer that question well and try to answer with my best capability to other question all these are positive self-talk. If we do positive self-talk we will feel confident and will perform well.
Find out what makes you negative: The best way to handle any problem is the write down the exact problem first. To become more positive first we need to write down in which all areas we become negative. Once we identify our problems properly then it will be easy to tackle them. Write down all the areas where you get negative it might be some person, some situation, some action, or some things. Now for each area, we can actually think of some positive ways to handle it next time.
Find Good In others: Most of us are not able to build good relationships because we think negatively about others. Every person has something which you like and something which you don’t like. We must just focus on what you like. Focussing on only things which you like would make you a very positive individual. Most of our fight is because we think negative about others.
Work on these points and you will also become a positive thinking individual and would enjoy all the benefits.
