20 Steps to Positive Thinking
How we choose to view the world has a great deal to do with the energy we attract into our lives. When we have negative thoughts and attitudes we create negative energy that permeates our auras, our karma, and attracts negative things and people into our lives.
When we have positive thinking and positive attitudes we generate positive energy, karma, and attract positive things and people into our lives. Many people are so weighed down by life that they have fallen into the habit of negative thinking and are missing out on the blessings positive thinking can bring into their lives. Don't be one of those people. Learning to think positively is easier than you think!
Here are 20 steps you can take to train your mind to Think Positive.
1. Start the day with smiles and good cheer.
How you greet the morning will determine your day. Everything will go much better throughout the day if you welcome it with high spirits and good energy. Just smile! Smiles are free but absolutely priceless. Besides, they can really irritate the grouches of the world.
2. Ask for guidance.
God-The Source of all things is there to help, even more, God is a great delegator, do not be afraid to ask for guidance. Whether you ask God, your Spirit Guides, Angels, Arch Angels, or passed family members there are multitudes of entities on the other side willing to aid you along the way.
Knowing that God and these loving entities are on your side makes it easy to know we can accomplish anything that is in our best interest to accomplish. Nothing is impossible, and you are never alone.
3. Plan your day.
Plan your work, then work your plan. Doing so will help you avoid mistakes which can produce negative results, which then become negative thoughts which produce negative energy, and ultimately becomes negative karma.
Knowing what your goals for the day are, and planning how to accomplish them ahead of time can create a greater sense of calm and produces not only successful outcomes but positive energy as well.Thus creating more positive karma. YaY!
4. Keep your mind focused on what's important.
Your thoughts have as much to do with creating positive outcomes as your deeds do. Setting goals and priorities while visualizing a successful outcome creates the energy which makes it so. Create strategies for dealing with any potential problems in order to produce favorable results.
Taking your goals and strategies seriously while remembering to take time for relaxation and fun will keep the energy you produce positive and help avoid problems along the way.
5. Be detached from the outcome.
Like a roller coaster, life is full of ups and downs; there will always be down times when things just do not go your way. No matter how well you plan, strategies, or pray it may just not be in your best interest to have what you believe you want.
Spirit knows that what we need is not always what we want.
Accepting that and being flexible to changes will help you better deal with these down times. Avoid the “need” for things to work the way you desire or plan, try not to be disappointed. Look for what you are expected to learn from this outcome. Once you have learned the lesson in a positive way things will go your way again.
6. Give new ideas and challenges a try.
Opportunities to learn and change are always available. Changing attitudes and routines that are for your own good promotes growth on all levels. Change is important, we humans tend to get into routines that become ruts and eventually stagnation, change helps get us going again.
New opportunities come to us through change even if it was unexpected or even unwanted. New work projects, new people, new places all offer new chances to learn and grow. Take change with the idea of an adventure (even when it is scary- remember the rollercoaster is not always tame) and positive outcomes will happen.
7. Be realistic.
Make sure that what you want is possible. Hoping for something to happen which could never really materialize in real life, will only bring you disappointment. If you want something you must take the action to make it happen. You will not find Mr/Miss Right sitting in your living room, you will not become a famous ball player by watching TV, or climb Mt Everest without first climbing a few hills.
Set your goals and take appropriate measures, and allow for a proper period of time to achieve your goals. Hey, everything takes time be patient and keep the scope of your desires realistic.
8. Balance your desires.
We live on a planet of opposites and duality – light and dark, male and female, love and hate, gain and loss, pleasure and pain.
This is how the cycle of life goes.
We can never have all the good things in life at the same time. Earth is the planet of contrast, it is a very difficult school to attend but the rewards of it’s conflicting lessons are quite high.
In love, there will always be someone who gets hurt. In wealth, there will always be people who will not be fortunate enough. It is only by understanding the opposites and duality will we truly mature as souls.
Remember one can not truly understand the light if they have never known the darkness humans learn best through contrast and conflict. But our lessons, once learned, are far more understood by those souls who never choose to come to the University of Earth.
In the end, we discover that measure and moderation are the primary keys to understanding.
9. Care for your mental and physical health.
Taking time for yourself. Do not just take care of your health by eating right, exercising and such, but actually, pamper yourself on a regular basis. It is not selfish to take a break for you, take a long soak in a warm tub, get a massage, go for a walk on the beach or a hike in the woods, whatever you find enjoyable do it just for you. Find what you love to do, be creative and have fun. It will aid in your mental and physical well-being.
Take time to get to Know “You.” There is no other person in the world who can tell who you really are. Know your passions, favorites, and principles. Spend some quality time by yourself – reading, listening to music, daydreaming, etc. Learn to love and soothe yourself. Get to know you completely, then you will be aware of how far can you go physically, mentally, and emotionally. Remember if you do not love you, you will only attract those who will not love you either. You are a fantastic person, with so very much to offer, when you see that so will others.
10. Love yourself.
As I have already said, before you can expect other people to love and adore you, you need to love yourself first. Make a positive commitment to yourself, to learning, work, family, friends, nature, and other worthwhile causes. Praise yourself as much as you praise others regularly. Your arm won't break by patting yourself on the back now and then. Never allow others to define who you are. When you start feeling confident about yourself, positive thoughts will naturally flow to your mind. Loving yourself as a person and as a soul will create positive karma and a better life.
11. Laugh, Laugh, Laugh!
That rollercoaster isn’t random it is set in the grand amusement park that is Earth for a reason. Enjoy the rides, even the scary ones can be fun. You will surely have more pleasure in life once you learn to laugh at the absurdities of our strange, wonderful, weird world.
Enjoy. Have fun. Looking at the brighter side of life starts with entertainment and pleasure. Whether your illness is physical or emotional, a few laughs and giggles can help you throw away heavy burdens such as anxiety, disappointment, or nervousness even pain. Laughter is the best medicine, so they say. So Laugh! Even if it is only to make people wonder what you're up to.
12. Keep a list of your goals and actions.
Familiarize yourself with things you want to accomplish and with the steps you must take
to complete them. By the time you are certain of what you want to do in your life, a stronger mind and will power will exist within you. Remember you have free will, life is not happening to you, you are the mapmaker of your life, you plotted the course before you were even born.
You created the outline for this life and set the karmic lessons, but within that outline is a great deal of flexibility. Nothing is written in stone, you have the free will and the power to change anything in your life and make your desires a reality.
13. Associate with positive
