Simple positively quotes:
“We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.”
“Having a positive mental attitude is asking how something can be done rather than saying it can’t be done.”
“To avoid situations in which you might make mistakes may be the biggest mistake of all.”
One of the very first things I started to work on deliberately with is my personal development. When I started understanding life better, I realized that I have to improve my outlook on life. As a matter of fact, no one cares if you’re hurt that is why it will be a violation for you to hurt yourself. So staying positive is a choice. Being happy is a choice as well as becoming successful.
But also so I could stay positive and constructive even during tough times and keep working towards something better.
Here are practical tips to keep yourself positive in any situation:
I know how it feels when someone insults and disrespects you. The thought of anger and frustration gets into your mind. This evil thought will bring hatred and evil feelings to you. If you want to be positive, don’t give bad thoughts a chance. Don’t trade your positive for pessimistic thoughts.
One of the simplest but most effective ways to build a more positive outlook has in my experience been to ask more helpful questions as often as possible.
When I am in what seems like a negative situation maybe I have been lazy, made a mistake, failed, or stumbled in some kind of way then I like to ask myself questions like:
What is one thing that is positive or good about this situation?
What is one opportunity within this situation?
Doing so is a whole lot better than what I used to do in such situations. Because back then I usually asked myself how much I sucked and how things could get even worse now.
I do however not always use these questions right away.
Oftentimes I need a bit of time to process the thoughts and feelings that arise in a situation before I can do that.
Trying to force optimistic thinking when you are still in turmoil or a bit shocked usually doesn’t work that well.
I have found that when I go too fast when I try to think, talk, eat and move around in my world quickly then things don’t go too well.
Stress builds up. Negative thoughts about just about anything start to well up and I feel like my power decreases.
But if I slow down just for a few minutes, even if I have to force it by walking, talking, and eating slower, then my mind and body calm down too. It becomes easier to think things through again and easier to find the optimistic and constructive perspective.
What you send out you tend to get back from the world and the people in it.
Not from everyone. And not every time.
But what you send out there matters a whole lot.
What you give them and how you treat them is what you’ll get back. And the way you treat others and how you think of them also tend to have a big effect on how you treat and think about yourself.
So give value and spread the positivity by for example:
Lend a hand when moving. Give a friend a ride in your car.
If he or she needs the information then help out by checking it up on Google or asking a friend of yours.
Or start a blog or a podcast and share what’s helped you out in life.
Sometimes people don’t want any direct help.
They just want someone to be there fully and listening as they vent for a little while.
Boosting the mood.
Smile. Give hugs when appropriate. Play uplifting music when hanging out with a friend or suggest an inspiring movie for your movie night.
Or encourage when someone has had a bad day or is going through a tough time.
This is very obvious of course. You will surely experience a positive impact on your health by practicing these pieces of stuff.
But I have a good experience every day after a good night’s sleep.
The workout will later reduce stress which will bring a positive impact on your health but if you have additional good food to it, you will gain more strength which will make it very difficult to be stressed.
How the day started is always a summary of the full day. I start my day with thanksgiving and appreciation to God no matter how bad the day before was.
Be careful about how you spend your mornings. It is the best time of the day.
If you get going at full speed, lost in future troubles in your mind then the stress, perceived loss of power over your life, and negative thoughts will ramp up quickly.
If you on the other hand start your day by moving slowly, by having an uplifting conversation with your family or friend or you spend some time reading or listening to inspiring and helpful articles or podcasts over breakfast or during your bus ride to work then that can make a big difference for how your whole day will go.
Positivity also tends to the logic of ignoring fears and insecurities. Sometimes you may want to take a chance in life, Start a new habit that feels unfamiliar, your own business on the side, or ask someone out for a date. But this habit of delay or setbacks will stop you. It can also stop you from getting your soulmate. Challenge yourself and combat fears.
Now the mind runs wild fueled by fear and creates nightmare scenarios and my fear-fueled mind could produce.
Finding clarity in this way doesn’t take much time or effort and it can help you to avoid much mind-made suffering. And help you to get going, step outside of your comfort zone and take that chance.
Molehill can become a big and terrifying mountain in your mind. It can make you lose your positivity. There will always be something like an obstacle but never let it stop you from being positive. The best steps are to:
I do this by just shouting Stop in my mind. I also do something like kicking it away. When the thoughts come I fire my leg as if I want to play shoot in football. So I play those thoughts of my mind with my leg so try it.
If the football technique works for you, you don’t need to breathe again. But if it doesn’t, after shouting stop in your mind, concentrate on deep breathing. The breath will concentrate your mind on the right things again.
Tap into the most productive thoughts. This refocusing takes a lot of effort to work and you must be willing to bring the mind back when it takes the wrong direction. I also have this problem but refocusing on my goals and working hard instead of thinking have made me proud of myself in my bureau.
The keynote o enjoy your wonderful self. Read positive and inspiring books. Go out with friends that make you happy. For me, I have a very funny friend who always makes me laughs. I love the way he makes me laugh that’s why I usually invite him to my house to share and enjoy his blessings. So if you have a good friend, get out together.
However, you can also add films, comedies, memes if you are a kind of introvert. There are forums and Facebook groups that you can discover and enjoy positive memes.
You can for example ask yourself:
It is also important to spend less time with negative and poisonous vibes. They will never do you any good so try to be smart enough to choose your people.
Now think about how you can start spending less time with one of those people or information sources this week.
And how you can spend more of the time you have now freed up with one of the most positive sources or people in your life.
The truth is that life is all about criticism. You must be used to the insults and sweeping them off your mind. In fact, One of the most common fears is the fear of criticism. Criticism can hurt anyone. It can hold people back from doing what they want in life. Things to take note of:
Don’t be disturbed by negative emails, comments, news, and other sorts of things about you. Defend yourself by choosing positively over it. Criticisms are just like guns. They will target and hurt you when you think about them.
Having negativity flowing out of someone’s mouth or email and it being all about you can hurt as well as being rejected can sting quite a bit. So protect yourself.
Sometimes we feel like taking revenge. But this doesn’t solve most of the problems. I recommend taking action wisely. Instead of letting people know how foolish you are why not calm down and work harder for your goals. Why should you waste your time to revenge foolish people? So the key is learning to handle it more healthily and smartly.
By understanding the things to take note of, your fear of criticism will lessen and will hurt less if you do get criticized.
I usually use four steps when I get some criticism. Maybe they can help you out too:
Step 1: Don’t reply right away
Instead keep your composure when you are angry, upset, or riled up then. Your silence itself will make them respect you afterward. When it is time to talk, you reply. You can even keep shut for years until when it’s not important again and leave it forever.
So if you want to reply, Take at least a couple of deep breaths or a little time to process the message before you respond. Think deep about the consequences and don’t let what you say go against you.
Step 2: Listen to the criticism
It is not bad to listen to them. I also realize that listing to criticism boosts strength and fearlessness to remain open and level-headed to figure out how this message can help you.
Is there something here that I may not want to hear but could help me?
How can I take advantage of this actual situation?
Step 3: Remember that the criticism isn’t always about you
Well, the fact is that some Criticisms are opportunities while Some are simply attacks or someone lashing out because they are having a bad day, year, or job.
It’s a fortune to take feedback to change for better from opportunity criticisms. But you can now ignore the negative comments to stay healthy and positive.
Step 4: Reply or let go.
There’s no big deal here but it’s just your choice. You either reply wisely or consider a let go.
I prefer the let go because they are all just complaints about my life so letting go is more peaceful than taking revenge or answering with some harmful words. This might proceed to a big quarrel so choose peace.
something still gets under your skin then know what to do
Sometimes you might be the one hurting yourself. You unknowingly still get under your skin and hurt yourself. Even if you make use of the steps above.
Two things that have helped me with that challenge are:
Here you just decide to let something that hinders you go. Letting that issue out of your mind will give chance for positive thoughts. Sometimes you feel like thinking about the hurtful past. The only way to control that is to exclude those thoughts and find a healthier perspective on the other hand.
We have talked a lot about self-esteem. Positively and self-esteem goes hand in hand. They follow the same logic so building the foundation of your life with self-esteem will bring a lot of satisfaction to your soul. I later realized over the years that stronger self-esteem gives me courage in front of many difficulties. Always Remember the ancient achievements that make you happy because it also boosts self-esteem.
