3 Simple Steps To Eliminate Negativity

You must defy pessimism and negativity at all costs. Negativity has nothing good to offer and creates limitations and stunts growth.

Do not allow your mind or outside forces to lower your expectations. You are capable of magnificent things, simply because you are human.

There are lots of talents in you waiting to be developed and used for your own good and the good of all. Remember you are a creature of God; your own existence is a gift, a miracle.

Continue to see your life in this light and you will see how your daily chores, plans, and goals will develop in a peaceful, joyful way. There is no reason why you should not have a lot of fun and live a happy life as a positive thinker starting now.

Your thoughts are powerful tools that, if used positively, can help you reach your goals. On the other hand, negative thinking can affect our bodies, our work, and our plans in the same negative ways as diseases. Following are some techniques to help overcome and eliminate negativity:

  1. Don’t give negative thinking any power. Thoughts and ideas only become powerful when you, the thinker, empower them. If you have a negative thought and decide to ignore it, or if a negative person tries to bring you down and you quickly dismiss it, you can move on without being affected by it.
  2. Use positive thinking to counter negativity. If someone tells you that you will never be financially independent, you should automatically tell yourself, “I am going to be financially independent faster than originally planned.” The same works for other aspects of your life. When thoughts about relationships come to your mind, for example, and you start thinking that you will never fall in love again, you counter-act by saying, “I will meet a special person and will be in a loving, meaningful, long-lasting relationship soon.” By doing so, you will take the power away from your negative thoughts, and give it to a positive one. This will not only help you get rid of negativity, it will help you become a more positive individual by always seeing the “glass half full”.
  3. Be aware of your thoughts and try recognizing them as negative or positive. Continue to nurture the positive thoughts, and write down on a piece of paper as many of the negative ones as you can remember. Then read through the list, and analyze them, recognizing that they are simply negative ideas. Think of them as pieces of your mind that you just removed and placed on the paper. Once on the paper and out of your head, they can remain there forever. Quietly acknowledge this and part ways with your negative thoughts.

Use these or any other techniques to move past the negativity in yourself and others, and you will see how much easier the process of living becomes. There is no need for any of your thoughts to haunt you or hurt you in any way. Your thoughts are one of the few things in this world you can control, and you should allow them to empower you, not the other way around.

Make Positivism the Best Motivator For Change

It is part of our human nature to get a boost of energy, led by adrenaline, when we get angry. When you see or experience something that angers you, chances are you use it as a motivator to change, to make sure it never happens again.

Angers leads to desire, to hope and action. But what about positivism? What about the radical idea of using a positive attitude to inspire hope, change and action. Hope to understand that it is possible.

Change to ensure that good trumps evil every time. Action to progress towards enlightenment every day.

But how? How do we turn away from a using negative energy as a powerful motivator to positivism as a tool for positive change?

The first course of action is remembering the power of your own mind. Your mind is capable of magnificent things. There are lots of talents in you waiting to be developed and used for your own good and the good of all.

When your life in this light, it becomes easier to be motivated to change in a more peaceful, joyful way.

Your thoughts are powerful tools that, when used positively, can help you create realities you never thought possible. Following are some techniques to help use the power of a positive mind to affect change in the world:

  1. Don’t give anger and negative thinking any power. Thoughts and ideas only become powerful when you, the thinker, empower them. If you have an angry thought and decide to ignore it, it will become easier to move ahead without being affected by the negative thinking.
  1. Use positive thinking to counter negativity. If someone tells you that you will never be financially independent, you should automatically tell yourself, “I am going to be financially independent faster than originally planned”. Your initial reaction may be anger and frustration but using positive language will help you change how you feel about this experience without losing motivation.  The same works for other aspects of your life. When thoughts about relationships come to your mind, for example, and you start thinking that you will never fall in love again, you counter-act by saying, “I will meet a special person and will enjoy a loving, meaningful, long-lasting relationship soon.” By doing so, you will take the power away from your negative thoughts, and give it to a positive one.
  1. Be aware of your thoughts and try recognizing them as negative or positive. Continue to nurture the positive thoughts, and write down on a piece of paper as many of the negative ones as you can remember. Then read through the list, and analyze them, recognizing that they are simply negative ideas. Think of them as pieces of your mind that you just removed and placed on the paper, ready to be disposed of. Once on the paper and out of your head, they can remain there forever. Quietly acknowledge this and part ways with your negative thoughts.

Your thoughts are some of the few things in the world that are 100% under your control.

Nothing else truly is. And very few things are as powerful as those very thoughts. Use them and allow them to empower you, and you will soon be a catalyst for amazing positive change in the world.

6 Ideas To Positively Control Your Mind (Not The Other Way Around)

Buddha once said: “What you Think, You Become”.

Thousands of years later, author Robert Collier said: “All power is from within and is therefore under our own control”.

There have been hundreds of great thinkers from Buddah our modern-day mentors telling us, in one way or another that our minds are incredibly powerful and that we have the power to direct our thoughts and emotions to help us attain happiness, peace and spirituality.

But how many of us truly follow these principles? How many of us honestly can say that we have control over our minds, not the other way around.

I certainly have been an object of my own negative thoughts and emotions and have let my mind control me and steer me into a place that only leads to frustration, confusion and negativity. Intellectually, I know that I can control my mind and that this control is the key to manifesting great things in my life. Yet, sometimes it seems harder than others.

The key then is in finding ideas that will help you take control and maintain it. If you can take control of what you believe to be true, you can create a present that fits your life, values, and desires and can ultimately shape your future.

If you feel that because you tried to and failed in the past, it is not possible to succeed, then you must work on learning how to change your belief system so that it works for you instead of against you.

These general rules will help you change your belief system into one that works best for you:

 

  1. Do not let fear and pain from past experiences guide what you will and will not do. Up to now, you have lived in fear of getting disappointed over and over. Fear breeds nothing but more fear and disappointment. Staying in a fearful state is not advisable at all. Why not keep on trying? When you are trying, there is always hope that this time your venture may work. This mentality fills you with positive, empowering energy to help you keep moving forward.

 

  1. Stay away from pessimists. Do not worry about the details. Just keep working towards your goals. Optimists create discipline and persistence that allow them to always see the “glass half full”. Optimists are constantly on the move and constantly learning how to get better at what they do. When you are optimistic, you develop confidence that helps you maintain a positive outlook on life.

 

  1. Remind yourself that change is good and stagnation is bad. When you are not moving or evolving, when you realize that what is creating pain and suffering, you will get up, move, and make a drastic change for good. Realize that a particular belief is causing you more harm than good, and then find a new, positive belief to replace the old one with.

 

  1. Question every belief you may have. As I have mentioned before, don’t take beliefs from your culture, parents, or society for granted. Educate yourself and find out what, why, and how a belief came to be. You will realize that your perception of the “truth” is sometimes coerced by biased aspects of your particular surroundings. 

 

  1. Take all appropriate actions to help you move to a more positive, empowering belief system by practicing new behaviors over and over until they become part of your daily routine.

 

  1. Support your new beliefs with references that allow you to learn more about what a belief means. What are the consequences of moving towards or away from these beliefs? Go over the emotional aspects of such a change.

 

Remember that the key to making a lasting commitment to change obsolete and limiting beliefs is communication and education. The more you know about what you think is right (or wrong); the easier it will be to adopt and maintain long-lasting changes.

Ask yourself why you believe in something or where the idea originated? More importantly, find out how a particular belief system is helping you (or holding you back) in life.

The answers may surprise you, and may lead you to a more enlightened path where you have all the positive energies and support you need to lead a more successful life.
