Our daily life is full of events thathave a positive or negative response in our minds and to varying degrees change our inner world. Over time, the accumulated life experience allows many people to learn how to react to events (especially in a stressful situation) in such a way as to benefit from them and suffer the least losses. This is how people react who are called optimists. What distinguishes the optimist? First of all, he knows how to think positively. It is positive thinking that helps such people to find a way out of the hopeless, seemingly, situation.
Why it is necessary to learn positive thinking?
Our life proceeds according to the program thatcreates our brain. That is, we consciously change the reality in which we live. Every day we build our own lives, setting a mental program. The more positive messages, the more often in life there are good events. But the feeling of insecurity and anxiety arises in us because we allow negative thoughts about ourselves and about our lives. Sometimes the negative is so strong that it can completely block the ability of people to see a way out of a difficult situation. Maybe not everything goes as we would like. But if you just worry and expect the worst, it will only confuse you and will not give you the best solution. Is it worth worrying if the problem is solved? And what will change from your concern if it is really impossible to solve the problem? It is better to take care of your nerves and change the mechanisms of thinking, breaking out of the trap of negative reactions.
What does positive thinking mean?
What is the point of investing in the concept ofpositive thinking? This way of thinking does not at all mean that you, like an ostrich, will bury your head in the sand and ignore troubles. The ability to think positively simply will help you to consider these troubles from the standpoint of their productive decision. Positive thinking can be developed, if only to want. When you learn to think positively, you will receive the key to changing your life for the better. Positively thinking people achieve success in difficult life situations, have greater physical and intellectual potential to confront stressful situations. In general, they have more opportunities to achieve good results than other people in similar conditions. In addition, cheerful people recover faster than others if they have suffered from a serious illness or from an accident. Interestingly, even accidents with positive people happen much less often! It seems that the ability to think positively produces their immunity to trouble.
How to find the source of positive thinking?
A person is arranged in such a way that he constantly pursuesan uncontrollable flow of time. Therefore, we want everything to happen quickly. Similarly, we are trying to build short paths to success and happiness. Unfortunately, few are willing to spend the time and effort to develop the necessary skills and gain all the benefits of positive thinking. Our desire for instant success is so great that we are not in a position to give an objective positive assessment of what is happening, but we snatch only fragments of an integral picture. We are guided by the principle of visualization of pleasant things for ourselves, we dream, we represent. And then we see that nothing of this does not change in our life, and sometimes we fall into even greater pessimism. Visualization is an important part of positive thinking, but one is not enough. In order to start thinking positively, you have to change a lot in yourself and in your views on life. You got up in the morning from bed, went out into the street - and start looking for an opportunity to achieve success. Do not wait for luck to fall on your head, but look for it yourself in the everyday routine of everyday life. Try:
- be open to good luck;
- have the courage to act to succeed;
- make a lot of efforts to change and become a successful and positive person;
- To act to realize your desires in real life in spite of all the failures.
Sir Winston Churchill said: "Success comes when we are defeated after defeat, without losing enthusiasm." Here is the formula of positivity: enthusiasm plus action is equal to success! In other words, if you really want to learn how to use positive thinking, adjust to a constant work on yourself. To strive for happiness and success is, of course, important. But fast does not always mean good. Let your steps towards the goal be unhurried, but firm and confident. And believe me, the result will justify the means that were spent to achieve it!
