Train Your Brain To Look for the Positive


Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results

– Willie Nelson

Keeping a positive mind is much easier said rather than done. After all, humans probably survived as a species because they were more likely to predict the grimmest outcome and would prepare for it. Negativity is rooted in our DNA. But in this day and age, there is no more need for this pessimistic outlook. So here are a couple of ways in which you can train your brain to harvest the power of positive thinking rather than keeping your head lost in dark thoughts:

Practice Gratitude

What goes around comes around. Am I right? So next time you get the opportunity, don’t forget to go thanking people who help you. Appreciating the positive that others try to bring offers you a chance to perpetuate the cycle of good feelings!

Get Rid of Negative Thinking

As a negative thinker, you attract negative people. Rid yourself of these dark influences in your life: those who constantly bring you down and focus on imperfections rather than appreciating the larger picture. Create distance between you and these negative spheres of influence, and try and tap into the power of positive thinking. Surround yourself with people which you perceive as inspirations and from which you can always learn.

Silver Linings

Try and learn a lesson from everything which happens to you. Don’t commiserate when you are facing unfortunate events: train your brain to look for the positive, even if it is hiding under the surface. A relationship that has just ended can make you stronger and more prepared for the next one. A failed test can help you realize you need to study harder. Everything that happens offers a positive side to it!

Share Positivity

Don’t just look for the positive in others. Bring out the positive changes yourself: be nicer to people, no matter what. Don’t be afraid to tell someone they look great, or that they did a great job. Write notes. Don’t gossip. Be kind to everyone.
