7 Steps towards a Positive Mindset

Our brain has a huge role in how we perceive the world around us. The way we think influences the way we feel. And the way we feel further determines all our actions and behaviors. If the thoughts are healthy, empowering, and positive, so will be our lives. 

Therefore, we have curated 7 steps towards a positive mindset for you.

1. Focus only on what you want

1. Focus only on what you want

The most common mistakes people make are:

  • Talking about problems over and over again. 
  • Not focusing on the end result and all wonderful things
  • Giving away all the energy and attention to what they don’t want. 

As a result, they create more of what they focus on - problems and headaches. 

If you want to develop a positive mindset:

  • Train your mind to stay away negativity
  • Focus on what you love and want

This way one can create a not only a healthier mind, but also a happier life.

3. Never believe in everything that you think

3. Never believe in everything that you think

Our brain is capable of having a million thoughts each day that includes thoughts which are:

  • Random
  • Toxic
  • Negative
  • Self-destructive, and many more.

If we start believing every one of these thoughts, chances are that we will lose our minds in the end.

Observe your mind. Observe your thoughts. 

Be wise enough not to identify yourself with your thoughts, especially if they are toxic and self-destructive. Always remember that you are not your mind. You are not your thoughts. You are the awareness behind these thoughts.

4. Embrace gratitude

The easiest and quickest way to inculcate positive thinking in your life is to express your gratitude for everything that happens to you and all around you by keeping a gratitude journal

While writing down the things you are thankful for, you build a healthy habit of looking for things to appreciate about yourself and your life.

Once you taste the joy of being grateful, you will no longer want to waste your time and energy on stressful, chaotic, and painful thoughts, people and experiences.

5. Let go of the idea of Perfection

5. Let go of the idea of Perfection

It is impossible to achieve perfection. With perfection there is no room for improvement. When you try to do everything perfectly while overanalyzing everything, your body goes into survival mode.

And when your body is in survival mode, you can’t really create ‘perfection’, but instead end up creating even more pain and frustration. 

So why hurt yourself trying to be perfect? We need to realize that perfection lies only in imperfection!

6. What you resist will persist

6. What you resist will persist

Resistance is one of the greatest enemies of positive thinking.

When you resist, you bring chaos to your mind. When the thoughts become chaotic, the body starts responding to all those unhealthy thoughts by creating all kinds of pains and diseases. 

When you go with the flow, and not against it; you return from chaos to balance, order, and harmony.

This way, you'll discover that life was never meant to be a struggle and thoughts were never intended to be the master of your life, You were!

7. Be Present

7. Be Present

The past is in the past & the future in the future! Choose to be present here & now

While thinking too much about what happened in the past & what may happen in the future, people often create a great deal of pain and suffering.

This type of thinking soon leads to toxicity – for yourself and those you love. 

Your life is here and now, right in front of your eyes. Don’t run away from it. Make peace with it.  

You are a powerful creator and the master of your own life!
