What Is Positive Thinking?
Positive thinking is probably your most important asset in everything you do, and this most definitely applies to your business. It can make all the difference between success and failure!
Think about that statement for a moment.
Think about the people you know, or know of, who are successful in their businesses.
What do you think they all have in common?
Were they born successful? Of course not!
Did they have success handed to them on a plate? Highly unlikely!
Did they sit back and wait for success to find them? Well, what do you think?
The one thing they all have in common is
A Positive Mindset
What does this mean?
A positive mindset gives you the ability to take on challenges and be prepared to fail along the way without giving up.
It helps you to see that failure is merely part of the learning curve towards success.
Successful people have the positive energy to keep on trying until they do succeed. You could say that they snatch success out of the jaws of failure! They just keep on trying until they succeed – they never give up.
Are you a positive person?
Here is an easy way to find out!
Look at this glass.
What do you see?
Is it half full or half empty?
Positive people see a glass that is half full.
Negative people tend to see a glass that is half empty.
And what do you say when people ask you how you are?
A Positive Person will answer, “Really good thanks” however they are actually feeling. They do not want to bring the questioner “down”. Just by saying that they feel really good, they will find that they actually do feel far better than they thought they did, and the person who asked them feels good too.
A Negative Person may well give you a list of their ailments and all the things that are wrong with their life. Let’s face it, no-one actually wants to hear that. You will probably try your best to make them feel better, and maybe you will succeed a little, but you may well also wish that you hadn’t asked!
People with a negative mindset suck the energy out of you until you can feel yourself descending to their level.
Think of the last time someone told you the tale of all their woes and problems. You probably tried to encourage them to find a solution to those problems and to appreciate the good things in their lives.
Some people are sufficiently positive to take notice of you and to take your advice. But others are so negative that they find a reason why anything you say will not work for them.
How did that make you feel? In all probability you felt exhausted after they had gone because you had spent so much energy trying to make them look on the bright side.
So which are you? You will find life is so much better in every way when you are positive!
Create a positive mindset
The best way to cultivate this mindset is to surround yourself with people who will encourage you in all that you try to do. If you come across problems, they will always try to lift you up and show you a way forward.
And make sure that your subconscious mind always works for you and not against you!
So try to avoid negative people as much as you can and concentrate on being with your positive friends and associates.
