I believe that having a positive mindset is one of the biggest values in life. Living in positivity, kindness, compassion, happiness is what we are here for. This is something that I am continuing to work on daily. Its crazy when I look back in my past, this was not something I felt good at.
A Positive Mindset is something thing that needs to be worked on (NOW more then ever) as we live in a world full of uncertainty and negativity. Bad things happen all the time, but we must have that faith and trust in life so we can live with abundance. I will admit that this is hard for me, I still second guess everything and am always cautious. You must decide to change your mind set in a more positive way and you will be halfway there.
Choosing to have a positive mindset will upgrade your life and make being happy and at peace way easier. Life isn’t easy, there will be many obstacles to bring you down and I am not saying by any mean not to feel that, I am saying once that uneasy feeling passes get back up and choose to see the positive.
Here are 5 ways I help to keep a positive mindset.
- Live in the Now-Do not Just Exist
For so long I have not always done what I love. Once I started with Rope Drop Travel and giving myself the love, I deserved did I see a change in my mindset. It was more about being happy and living my life to the fullest. Listen being a young mom is and was the best thing that ever happened to me, but when everyone around you does not understand it can totally bring your levels of positivity down. I am now a better mom, wife, friend, sister, daughter and travel agent because of my mindset.
- Speak Positive to Yourself and ABOUT yourself
This right here is the hardest for me. I am always so down on myself, anyone who knows me will tell you that. Its not that I think I am a bad person, I just always second guess myself due to things I have dealt with in my past. So, I came up with a list of things I can and can’t say about me.
Life Sucks This is just a bump in the road
Everything is hard I am strong and can get through it
Dwell on Physical Appearance I am beautiful on the inside and that is what counts
These are just a few, I am still working on being hard on myself about money. Living in abundance and thinking money comes easy to me is the hardest for me to overcome. Even when I am successful, I am always doubting myself. I have seen in many of my friends and colleagues that this one mindset can set them apart from others. I am gradually getting better, but I definitely struggle.
- Looks for The Good in Every Situation
This… this is something I have mastered over the years. Seven years ago, I was diagnosed with Lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus) and could have let it takeover, instead I pushed myself everyday to know everything I could. I have bad days for sure, but I always say “it could be worse” because in reality it could be. I am lucky enough to still have all my organs working properly and not in the hospital. Then 2 years ago I had to have a craniotomy to remove a tumor from my brain. At thing point I was down for about a day because I just did not understand why, “why me, what did I do to deserve this? These are the things that came out of my mouth. Then I cried my last tear for 7 months, when I started telling people about it and they felt sorry for me it made me mad. I didn’t want that which is why I chose not to tell many people until I had no choice to. I looked at it as just another lesson to be learned, was I scared? ABSOUTLY but that was not going to stop me from living in the moment with my family and friends. I actually had moments of clarity leading up to my surgery and right after. I know then that I was not going to sweat the small stuff and I needed to be here for my kids 100% because you just never know what tomorrow will bring. Sorry if I got a little morbid or deep but this is what has helped shape me to have a better mindset. These two events were probably the hardest for me to shake but I did and realized it was the best thing I could have done.
- Appreciate What You Already Have
Look around you, look who you surround yourself with are they upbeat and positive people? Listen not everyone around you will be, but that is where you need to focus on how much time is spent with that person or if that person is even essential to your well-being. I have had to do some soul searching and cut some ties because it was mentally draining for me to keep up with. But I did not even realize until I started working on myself.
Appreciate the little things, the air you breath, the home you live in, the life you were given, that you have food and water, the health you were given (because believe me it can always be worse). Once you change how you see the “little” things you will see that those are actually the “BIG” things in life that make you, YOU! This is were you start to live with abundance. Many people in this world don’t even have the essentials to live. Its crazy to see that even those who bodies are failing them if they have a positive mindset, they live an enjoyable life. The power of the mind and thoughts contribute to how your body responds.
- You Get What You Give
It is as simple as that give and be what you want. If you give more positivity, you get more positive things in life, if you give more negativity, you get the same kind of circumstances and situations in life. You attract what you give out. It all starts with you; YOU control how the Universe will evolve for you. If you want to be happier, think happier thoughts. Your state of mind creates your reality, I always say I will put it in the Universe. So, if you are in a higher, happier state of mind, your reality will reflect that.
Thank you for reading and I hope this article was helpful. Please know I am by no means a positive person all day every day. But these things have proven to help my mindset and achieve goals I NEVER even knew I wanted. Stay Positive and Be Happy ?
