How to develop your mind towards positivity
Training the mind
A lot has been attributed to the power of the mind. As
humans, we have the power to mold our personality, to
shape our future, to create our destiny and to determine
who and what we are.We possess greater power than any
other supernatural powers, a power that builds reality
and not mere imaginations. This is the power of the
It is often said that 'It's not who you are that holds
you back, it's who you are think you're not.
It is sometimes interesting how we tend to be so
addicted in looking outside ourselves that we almost
totally lost access to our inner mind. We are so afraid
to look inward for fear of not being happy with what may
be the outcome.What we don't know is that we have the
power to reverse what the outside world makes us believe
in. If the world says you are nothing, then you need to
drum it into yourself that you are 'a unique being'
Aside from believing in and having faith in something
you must make positive effort to make it happen.
Remember the Obama campaign theme 'Yes, we can' and here
we are today. You too can, you only need to be
determined to make it real.
Here are some tips on how to train your mind on positive
Start the day with cheers and smiles: As long as you
welcome your day with positive energy and high spirits,
everything will go well. Start with a beautiful smile,
it doesn't cost you anything, think of the beautiful
things that have happened to you lately and leverage on
it to achieve your objectives for the day.
Ask for Guidance: A few minutes of prayer would help
your soul. If you have faith, God will surely direct
your path for the day. He is the custodian of all
activities so make him your GPS, ask for direction and
Plan the day Ahead: If we fail to plan, then we plan to
fail. To avoid mistakes that will cause negative output
and give birth to negative thoughts on your daily
activities, it is better to plan your work first, after
which you work your plan. Set realistic goals before you
go to bed.
Don't be distraught by your failure: There will be times
things would not turn our as you planned, don't get
frustrated. Once you are convinced you have put in your
best, simply move on and seek for greater opportunities.
Try new challenges: If you try and fail, try and try
again. This is a simple philosophy of life. Doing new
things may include considering more options for a
project. Don't box yourself, be open to new ideas and
thoughts around you. Meet new people, ask questions and
flow freely. By so doing, your flow of thinking is
directed to improvement and negative thoughts will be
Balance your desires: Life is all about negatives and
positives. We can never have all good things in life at
the same time. We live in a world of opposites and
duality - gain and loss, pleasure and pain. Therefore
measure and moderation is the primary key thing to train
your mind with.
Know yourself: No one can truly know you more than you
know yourself. If you know yourself completely, you will
be aware of how far you can go physically, mentally and
emotionally. Create quiet moments to look inward and be
objective in your analysis.
Associate with positive people: The circle in which you
find yourself could make or mar you. Anywhere you find
yourself, make it a habit to associate with optimistic
and positive minded people. Do not allow anyone to bring
you down. If you find such group, hang out with them
more often as this would help build your self confidence
and self esteem.
Be open: You need to accept the fact that learning is
ongoing. No one person can claim sole knowledge of
everything so be open. Ask questions, do not close your
mind to information. Ideas do come from informal
settings so open your mind to receive them.
Love Yourself: Make a positive commitment to yourself
first and foremost. Before you expect others to love and
adore you, you need to love your self first. The more
you hate something about yourself and value other
people, the more harm you are doing to your mind. Praise
yourself as much as you praise others once in a while.
When you start feeling confident about yourself,
positive thoughts will flow naturally.
Kiss your worries goodbye: Before you turn in at night,
relieve your self of bad experiences and unhappy moments
that happened within the day. Simply let them go! If you
find it difficult to do, think of something you enjoy
doing like watching movies, listening to music or
reading, make this your last activity for the day and
dose off in the process.
Remember, as a new day unfolds, new hope arises. Let
your mind work for you. If you can think it, you can do
