Many people think that positive thinking is a believe process, but dear friends, it is not a believe process rather it is a Neuro-Linguistic Programming, which one has to practice daily for positive outcomes throughout the day. In our day to day life, we come across good and bad situations but nothing is good or bad it is just our thinking that makes things good or bad. Our perception only tells us good or bad, right or wrong, positive or negative to everything in the world. To notice good qualities and honesty in situations is considered positive thinking and to merely notice imperfection and worthlessness in everything is surely negative thinking. Positive thinking makes us stress-free and gives us a fresher outlook on life. Negative thinking makes us feel stressed out frustrated and disappointed with life.
Positive thoughts give rise to optimistic emotions such as kindness, love, sympathy, forgiveness, gratefulness, blissfulness, patience, confidence, generosity and hope. Negative thoughts multiply bad qualities and give birth to fear, anger hatred, suspicion, sorrows, worry, intolerance, uncertainty, self-centeredness and hopelessness.
A person with a healthy mind always takes everything positive and also looks positivity in the other person’s opinion. While a person with a contaminated mind always senses imperfection in the other person. Actually, this is only happening in our own houses.
Positive thinking always tries to see the positive side of things and find the things in his favor. For example, a salesman when he is out to sell his things from door to door, if he goes with positive mindset then without fail he will be able to sell his products and on the other hand, if he himself doubts his capabilities then he receives the same result. It is rightly said by Newton, to every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Here it is his negative thinking that is responsible for his downfall. Similarly, a person who thinks that he is ill will surely fall sick as he has been inviting the same and so gets it because he has applied the secret on himself. Our biggest enemy is the group of negative thoughts in our head. The rail to success lies only in our activities, accompanied by positive thinking.
There are many advantages of positive thinking; stress levels become less, there is a feeling of happiness and contentment in every situation, one is able to tackle problems without causing any tension because positive thinking gives the art of finding solutions to problems in a reasonable and practical manner, a person with positive thinking is never sad or disappointed, the capacity to work increases, patience and self confidence increases, positive encouragement makes a devil person a better person, the decision making capabilities also increases, a creative way of thinking develops, good relationships in the family and Society are maintained, there is a healthy development in one’s personality and character, one reaches the heights of success, each one of us have some exceptional qualities that others may not have and having a positive thinking gives us the power to recognize those qualities, a positive thinking increases the health-protecting hormones in the body that in turn strengthen the immune system and make us healthy. People with positive thinking do not depend on others for their happiness they create an atmosphere of joy and happiness where ever they are.
Developing Positive Thinking
But, a big question, how to develop positive thinking? First of all, one has to take their own remote control into their own hands not passing it on to others. The true ability of a person is put to test in adverse situations, overcome practically yourself, by taking out a good solution. Make your enemy your friend, in fact, they are only your good friends and does good for us in our life because their criticism gives us recognition. The live example is of our PM Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi. The more Rahul Gandhi criticized and PM Narendra Modi became more and more popular and successful. Obstacles in life always leave a message and teach us how to live life bravely. Accept changes because change is the mother of nature. Try and focus on the positive aspects and good qualities in an individual or a situation, instead of finding mistakes. Love whatever work you do and make continuous efforts to do it better. Place yourself in other’s shoes (Empathy) and then take decisions. Be optimistic stop blaming others, ignore small and unimportant things. When faced with any challenge either find out a solution or else create it. Failure is the ladder to success. A man learns cycling only after falling down a number of times. So, stay away from negative thoughts and negative people. Only believe that whatever God does is the best. Always use kind and positive language. Read good books and meet all kinds of people from all spheres of life, so that one gets to learn some or the other thing from them. Avoid walking with your drooping head, such a posture is a sign of negativity. Whenever a negative thought enters your mind immediately say shut up! And scold it.
