Positive thinking is one of the most important aspects in one’s life. It will help you in coping up depression and release good hormones which will help you in achieving your goals.
But how to think positive?
We often struggle in thinking positively because it takes an extra effort to stop – look – change the thinking process. This kind of struggle is cumbersome initially and you have to remind yourself many times to focus on positive thinking, but once in practice it can dissolve in your sub-conscious mind and can become an automated process.
Best way to “stop – look – change” is to find the trigger that is going to change your perspective from normal to negative and just at that instant: —–> “STOP”!!.. Just stop that negative thought.
“LOOK” around yourself, within you and good things you have in life. Hold your thought — Don’t you shift your stance and BAMM!
“CHANGE” that negative feeling to positive. Replace words like “I can’t”, “I don’t” with “I can” and “I will”.
Be conscious of your thoughts and wait for the instant where your thoughts are about to change and apply “Stop – Look – Change” for 1-2 seconds. You will notice that instead of going into negative thought process you manage it to change to a positive thinking exercise.
Hope this small exercise helps you.
