Do You Have a Positive Mind?

woman thinkingA negative mind will not give you a positive life. Everyone wants a positive life because a positive life is filled with success, fulfilling relationships, and happiness. It’s a fact that you life is a print out of the negative or positive thoughts in your mind.

How do you know you don’t have a negative mind? Answer these questions:   Be honest – answer them the way you are, not the way you wish you were!

  1. When someone gives you a suggestion do you frequently think of a reason why it won’t work?
  2. When you meet someone for the first time, do you usually think of something bad or that you don’t like about the person?
  3. When something you don’t like happens to you, do you quickly share it with friends and family?
  4. Do you have a close friend who is a drama queen?
  5. Are you afraid you won’t get your main goal you want in life?
  6. Are you hard on yourself and frequently quietly criticize yourself?
  7. Are you a worrier?
  8. Do you wish you had more fun in life and laughed more?

If you answered ‘yes’ to 4 or more, you’re not a raging optimist; in fact, you are probably a pessimist. If that’s you, it’s important to realize that when you complain or have pessimistic attitude, you’ve made a decision that something is not good. Change that habit! Look for the good! It’s there if you look for it.

Time to see the other side of life. There’s a song that says, ‘‘Turn that frown upside down and smile that frown away.’

 What to do to be more positive:

  • Consciously be more open to suggestions and people.
  • Stop speaking negatively to yourself and others.
  • Speak only about what you want, not about something bad that happened nor what you don’t want.
  • Keep a smile on your face and have more fun.
  • When you find yourself worrying, immediately change your thoughts to see the way you want the situation to turn out.
  • Quit watching negative news programs (well, that’s pretty much all news these days!)

A change of mind can change your life quickly. Go for it!
