The positive world – a world full of dreams and hopes, of aspirations and opportunities, a world of perfection where every single day ushers in bright rays of sun into our lives, which keep us luminous to disseminate the glow all around us.
We all seek this world.
At the same time we know no such world exists!
Doesn’t it dampen your spirits?
We look around and feel – ‘Nothing is perfect’…the dreams get shattered, the hopes are belied, the aspirations delude and the opportunities elude us. The clouds have the power to conceal the sunshine and our radiance fails to ignite positive thoughts.
Unless we keep up the efforts of embellishing our thoughts and emotions, which can be trained to veer into a positive direction.
The first step:
We all say ‘think positive’ but a person who has been raised in a negative atmosphere, who has been told that he is ‘good for nothing’, who has been pushed around for selfish motives can never understand positivity.
Such a person feels confused when he steps into a positive world. He starts doubting himself and the intentions of people around him. He needs reassurance that positive thoughts can be cultivated.
How to develop a positive approach:
We live at the edge of positivity and keep drifting into the negative world the moment we stumble or encounter a little challenge.
We have to train our emotions to accept the challenges of life and stop blaming those who didn’t introduce us to the positive aspects.
If you didn’t pick up the emotional quotient, the ability to handle your emotions at a young age, it is never too late.
You can do it now with the following steps!
Broaden your horizon:
Thinking beyond the level of our immediate understanding of a situation can expose us to more possibilities. We must develop the sensitivity of discerning the unseen potential of our emotions. Even scientific research shows that positive emotions broaden our perspective. Learning to trust our abilities and thinking out of the box, into which we tend to recede, can lead us towards positive thoughts.
Eliminate your fears:
When this emotion is controlled or rejected, we expand our power of positive thinking. Fear is nothing but a negative supposition, an attempt to avoid the untrodden path as it supports our negative thoughts. It is the fear of failure that restricts us to take the risks thereby controlling a positive outcome. It doesn’t even let us think that our hopes could be real, worth pursuing.
Evoke positive emotions:
When our dreams encourage positive thoughts; hope gives a boost to them and as they start sprouting, they can see the sparks of success. Happiness and gratitude can prop them up with constant and calm efforts. Then follows peace, which is the older sister of positivity. If we put all these emotions together, they can accentuate our ability to step into a positive world.
Be realistic, introspect and control your negative thoughts and actions on regular basis. When a close family member or a friend hurts us, we get cautious, we step backwards to take charge, we think more about our self-esteem and experience negative emotions such as anger, powerlessness and distress. It is natural but don’t let those emotions overpower you.
However hard we may focus on positive thinking, there comes a time during the day when negative thoughts pounce upon us, unawares. They could be due to the attitude of a person at home, a person who can’t be eliminated from our immediate environment or it could be due to some action of a toxic person at work. This is the time we have to keep a bouncer over our thoughts. We have to remind ourselves: this is negativity; this is going to harm us.
Count your blessings:
Think how much we have. A comfortable home, good health, love and care, freedom of thoughts and action, sumptuous food? What more do you require?
Learn to ignore the little irritable moments. Banish those negative thoughts away. Forgive and forget all those people who brought misery into your lives. Bar their future access and promise yourself to live in a positive world.
“Choosing to be positive and having a grateful attitude is going to determine how you’re going to live your life.” – Joel Osteen
Positive world can be created. We just need the emotional quotient, essential for understanding people and for self-analysis.
