Positive Motivational Thoughts

You must have seen that a group of men living in a particular environment possess very similar perspective towards life to a certain extent. This fact is also true for measuring the level of performance of a group of workers working in a particular environment controlled by a set of disciplinary rules and regulations. I always wonder about what actually holds people becoming successful? Although I've some question about the definition of success.However, the answer is attitude. Now, if I ask you what is the difference between a successful man and an apparent unsuccessful man? Though many of us measure success in terms of mundane values, there are still a handful number of people, in our society, to whom earthy things hold no value. Yet, for living a secured and abundant life, one need money and wealth. For earning a decent amount of money, we choose to work for others or do business, trading and many more to name.Not all professions have the potential to provide decent earning opportunities. Some professions are better than the others as far as the monetary benefits and social values are concerned. Thus the concept of becoming a successful person is not only labeled with the potential to earn, but it is also related to the level of acceptance of a profession to the majority of the members of a society, though not all.

You must have observed that there are many doing the same type of work or business, and only a few of them are making substantial amount of money, while the others are still struggling to make a decent living. Take for example, there are thousands of online writers writing blogs or articles, only a few of them are making a good money. Though, it is true that many online writers write only for their hobbies or just want to develop their writing skills. Yet, many writers joining revenue sharing sites and leaving it within a few months because they are not finding substantial income source in it. At the same time, there are many online writers who are making multiple thousand dollars by writing online. The difference is nothing but the attitude of the writers.

Just like the successful writer, there are successful organizations or countries that are making astronomical level of progress and development, both technically and economically. What is the secret of their success or do you really think that they possess kind of magic wand to bring instantaneous success. The secret of success lies in a person’s attitude. If you can gather a number of people with positive attitude in your organization, there is no reason your business won’t flourish. An organization full of negative minded people will never go ahead-this is a proven fact by William James, Harvard University. So the secret of changing your life lies in changing your attitude. The bottom line is a positive attitude contributes the most in changing the momentum of not a single person, but also an entire society, eventually the whole world.

How our attitudes develop?

As we grow older we keep on taking various types of inputs from our surrounding environments that shape our attitude towards life. Attitude is an invisible infrastructure for our success as a human being. There are mainly three major factors which contribute the most developing our attitudes. They are:

  • The environments where you are borne and live.
  • Experience in life
  • Education

Among the three parameters of attitude, the environmental influence affects the most on developing positive attitudes. Some of the environmental influences are positive or negative influence of families, friends, and co-workers. The other important attitude shaping factors are cultural, religious, social and political environments. In this era of digital media both internet and TV plays crucial role molding a child’s attitude towards life.

Dr. Alex Pattakos: The Meaning of Positive Thinking

Benefits of having a positive attitude:

  • Productivity increases
  • Helpful to solve any problem
  • Helps to develop better and healthy working environments
  • Reduce anxiety and stress of mind
  • Help you flourish your personality and increase your desirability within society
  • Increase profitability of an organization

A negative mind only bring bitterness, ill mental health and higher stress level.This does not happen only in the person's life who thinks negatively, but also to others life

Building a positive attitude:

Most of the human do not love changes in their life-they love to cocoon their life into a bunch of stipulated rules and obligations. Even if, being aware of the fact that a negative attitude drive life into a backward direction,do not make people want to change their life-style.The reason behind this is that people do not feel comfortable with the changes; they always feel comfortable with their present state of mind. This not changing your mind about any particular subject is that your mind wants to hold you in your current state- yes, it is your mind, not yourself. Don’t listen to your mind; listen to your logic. The first step for changing a negative attitude is to have a strong desire of having a continuous state of positive-attitude.

Step 1

Always try to find the good part of any incident. Every event of your life will not always bring you positive opportunity which is understood by conventional sense of your social belief system. Yet, everything in this world has a positive side. Even if you lose something,try to find something good about losing anything. Remember that people with negative thoughts only looking for the negative aspects of life,even if in good situation of their life. This is because they have keen inclination for negative energy only. In simple words,they are negative energy puller. Negativity is the polarity of a negative mind- their job is to dig out the darker side of life-they simply fail to see the brighter portion of life. These types of people are also known as pessimist. For getting rid of negative energy, your first job is to find the good part in any event and focus on only the positive side of life.

Positive Mental Attitude

Step 2

Make a habit of taking action now, instead of tomorrow. Your mind always tries to trick you for comfort. It is always lurking you to stay in your comfort-zone of life. Mind does so by giving you the impression that you have enough time to reach your goal, and by alerting you about the negative consequences of changes. It is you who will be responsible for taking actions, not your mind. You are not your mind. So, whatever plan you have today, just start executing it now!

Step 3

Expressing gratitude draws positive energy and drive away negative thoughts-that’s why gratitude is so important to change your attitude. Always try to find happiness in small things of your life. Instead of having a complaint attitude towards everything, you can think about converting yourself as a man of gratitude.

Step 4

Develop a strong self-esteem. If you do not respect and love yourself then on one on this planet going to admire you. Self-esteem is all about feeling better inside you-it’s a feel good factor that inspire you to see what you are capable of and what kind of power you already have. Once you have strong self-esteem and self-respect for yourself, you will find how your performance graph goes up. One of the easiest ways to build self-esteem is to help others with selfless intention.

Step 5

Always avoid negative influence and people. Why criminals have more intimacy and contacts with other criminals. It is because of the fact that similar kinds of people attract more people who are just like them-they never attract unlike people. Even a TV program or a piece of music or a movie has the potential to instill negative thoughts in your mind. So, be picky in choosing your companions and in developing your habits.

Step 6

Start your day with positive vibes. You might think of starting your day reading a few positive quotes or listening some inspirational songs. By beginning a day with positive attitude will help you feel positive for the rest of the time of that day.

Finally, in the process of changing your attitude you must always keep yourself reminding that you already have a positive attitude and start thinking that way right NOW!

      Came across this searching for motivation, energy, attitude. It is spot on. Is it negative thinking to see all the grammatical errors and want to stop reading it? If the words and sentences were fixed I would love it even more. Although that I think about it it might then sound like some same old talk and not get the same effect as I read and try to make up what you exactly mean. Anyway it is really good stuff I just wish I could fix the grammar.

      Your writing is lovely. Not only are the ideas helpful, but the way you express them is beautiful. Your "grammatical errors" help me hear your real voice. Regarding the content, positive thinking was important for me to improve my self esteem. I have always been motivated and known what I SHOULD do and think. But I didn't actually do it until I got a cognitive behavioral therapist to help me. Thanks for your insight. I'd love your feedback on my hubs.

      Hi! Andormida

      A good article. Important is to remind one self of these ideas in a crisis situation and try to handle it in as calm manner as one can.

      Good to see you have a very positive attitude. Politeness is an important tool to have positive attitude. You wrote an article about Einstein. I always remember one famous incident with Einstein. While trying to find out about some Physicist he asked "why is he so polite? what has he done?"

      That is the lesson for one should not forget ever. For him it was natural that more you succeed more polite you are. That brings in positivity most.

      Step 5 about associating with the right people cannot be underemphasized enough. We really have to make room for positive people in our lives to help us achieve success while avoiding toxic ones if at all possible.
