I hope you all had a great weekend and that things wherever you are, have started to open and go more back to normal.
Today’s quote is so true. You will only get in a positive flow if you have released old negative messages and self-limiting beliefs
I promised you the remaining six tips for changing negative thinking and your outlook on life so let’s get started……
#7. Socialize with positive people. As the Law of Attraction states, “Like attracts like,” so if you want to foster a positive outlook on life, choose positive people to be around. Those with a negative outlook and a belief that everyone is out to get them will bring negativity into your life, which WILL suck away any positivity and energy. We don’t get to choose family but that doesn’t mean you have to be around them constantly if they suck your energy.
#8. Avoid negative media stories. Yes, it’s important to know what’s happening in the world but that doesn’t mean you have to constantly listen to the barrage of news 24 hours, 7 days a week. That will certainly end up draining your positive energy. Just as with number 7, limit your news and read inspiring books or listen to motivational podcasts if you want a more positive outlook.
#9. Stretch out of your comfort zone. Trying new things, meeting new people, taking your business in a new direction are all risks but you’ll have no choice but to “rise to the occasion”. Stepping out of a comfort zone can go a long way toward improving your mindset and self-confidence, especially if you’re one of those people who say, “That was easier than I thought,” when describing their new experience.
#10. Find joy outside of work. If you never step away from the computer and are consumed constantly with work, you’re headed toward burnout. Live in the moment with your family and friends. Banish work talk from the dinner table. Find a new hobby. Walk on nature trails or along the beach. Reconnect with nature by planting a garden or doing yardwork. Exercise your brain with crossword puzzles or whatever works for you. You’ll feel motivated and happy after allowing yourself time to relax and regroup.
#11. Practice gratitude. Gratitude journaling is all the rage right now but for good reason. Finding gratitude every single day allows you to focus on the positive, which brings happiness. Your gratitude can also be in the form of business wins, which again forces you to focus on the good things in business instead of the bad.
#12. Create a positive mindset morning routine. Instead of reaching for your phone the instant you open your eyes, consider starting a morning routine that brings positivity and motivation. Listen to motivational podcasts. Read personal development books or blogs. Journal about your daily goals, hopes, and dreams. Do yoga or other stretching exercises. Starting your day off with positive thoughts and movement will motivate you as well as put you in a happy mood, which can often carry throughout your day.
As you can see, there are no magic wands or pills that will change your mindset. You are in total control of your mindset and your own success, no matter what that definition may be. Take your time implementing these tips and share your goals and dreams with your family and friends or whoever will be your biggest cheerleaders. If you’re ready to make some big changes in your life, it’s time to step out of your own way.
‘Til Next time
Have a fantastic week
Live life with gratitude and abundance
