There are two types of mindset. One is a positive mindset and another is a negative mindset. Creating a negative mindset or thoughts in the mind is like eating junk foods, and we know how junk foods are harmful to our bodies. Many junk foods don’t harm our body immediately but harm us slowly and internally without our knowledge when we take them repeatedly, and create many diseases for the future. Let’s start reading how your thoughts impact your life.
1. CREATE POSITIVE MENTAL IMAGES IN MIND
Dr. Joseph Murphy wrote:
“Infinite riches are all around you if you will open your mental eyes and behold the treasure house of infinity within you. There is a gold mine within you from which you can extract everything you need to live life gloriously, joyously, and abundantly.”
All negative thoughts are being created through negative mental images that you hold inside your mind through different sources. You can’t remove negative thoughts from your mind directly like we can throw away an object from one place to another because these things appear in physical form, but thoughts in the mind can’t be seen, you can only feel them. Hence, negative feelings can be deactivated through repeated positive mindsets and positive actions.
Through repetition of good and specific thoughts in mind, you can create new ideas, new plans, and new ways of working towards achieving your goals.
2. SHIFT YOUR NEGATIVE THOUGHTS INTO POSITIVE ONES
You can weaken the effectiveness of negative thoughts by shifting your negative thoughts to positive ones. See more possibilities in mind, think about your life on the positive side, and keep on adding more positive thoughts into the mind through positive mental pictures to make your thought garden of mind healthy and active, and this is always in your control; in this way, you can take control of your mind.
When you change your thoughts, you change your attitudes, you change your spoken words, you change your action habits and finally, you get changes in your outcomes.
While watching our favorite movies or listening to our favorite songs, we enjoy them because we are connecting our feelings with the same thought frequencies of those events of the movie or the music while watching or listening respectively. What we love, we keep on watching or listening to it several times, because the pictures or music replaying in the movie or songs are our thoughts and we love to bring them back several times to enjoy them. The thoughts here may be good or bad, but we still love them, and they become our predominant thoughts over time.
We are connecting our thought frequencies into the same thought frequencies of the movie or music while playing, and many times, we are feeling or placing ourselves in the same positions like we are the main role players of the events.
3. EMPOWER YOUR INNER SUPERIORITY
An American new thought author, philosopher, and businessman,
Charles Haanel said:
“The predominant thought or the mental attitude is the magnet, and the law is that like attracts like, consequently, the mental attitude will invariably attract such conditions as corresponding to its nature.”
You can empower your inner superiority through your constructive thoughts and with a positive mindset. Plant the useful seeds of thoughts in mind; they will take root in their own time. Don’t worry, do your best and give careful attention to plant more positive thoughts in your mind. So, you should build a positive mindset to be successful.
The greatest weapon against your stress is creating more optimistic thoughts in your mind through consciously speaking, writing, visualizing more positive things, and doing positive actions on them.
Useless weeds are the part of the thought garden, they are the negative thoughts. They can’t harm your thought garden if you are attentively removing useless weeds every time they come into your knowledge. If you appreciate those useless weeds, they will start dominating the plants to downgrade them.
4. IGNORE NEGATIVE THOUGHTS AND APPRECIATE POSITIVE THOUGHTS
Dr. Joseph Murphy once said,
“Your subconscious mind does not argue with you. It accepts what your conscious mind decrees. If you say, “I can’t do it,” your subconscious mind works to make it true. Select a better thought. The decree, “I’ll buy it. I accept it in my mind.”
To manage your positive thoughts, you have to ignore negative thoughts if they are present. You get results that harmonize with your thoughts, feelings, and actions. Your inner thoughts, spoken words, and outside actions should be in harmony, they should not be in contradictions. Your life is the images of your predominant thoughts creating more positive thoughts to empower your life. Healthy thoughts produce more healthy and powerful thoughts for your life.
What you believe subconsciously becomes the fact in the future, the time factor varies from person to person, but people get the things in their life that they think, feel and believe. When you replay a thought repeatedly in your mind over some time it becomes a fact today or afterward, it depends on the strength of your emotions on the thoughts. We don’t get life randomly; we create it through our thoughts and different emotions from time to time ahead. As you think and believe, you become. This is how your mindset effects your life.
5. ALTER YOUR THOUGHTS ON PEOPLE AND SITUATIONS
A British philosophical writer James Allen wrote:
“Man is made or unmade by himself. In the armory of thought, he forges the weapons by which he destroys himself. He also fashions the tools with which he builds for himself heavenly mansions of joy, strength, and peace. By the right choice and true application of thought, man ascends to divine perfection. By the abuse and wrong application of thought, he descends below the level of the beast.”
When you alter your thoughts on people, situations, or anything you have with, you will see them in the same eyes and thoughts. With the same thoughts, you can’t change the situations when you have created them.
Influence your mind positively with the worthwhile thoughts of your desires; once your mind is convinced with great thoughts, nobody can stop you to achieve your goals and you can do the miracle.
You have to alter your thoughts to see the solutions. To get a changed life with success, happiness, and prosperity, you have to change your thoughts in the same direction. Changing thoughts and state of mind from one state to another is a personal task, and you can do it better every time in life.
6. DEVELOP A SUCCESS MINDSET
Success is completely impossible if you fail to develop a success mindset within you. It’s a conscious decision, and that depends on you in the whole process. Your unhealthy thoughts create depression, stress, disbelief, hatred, sadness, failure, ill-health, and many other negative emotions. Your healthy thoughts create love, faith, happiness, good health, success, prosperity, inner peace, and many other positive emotions that lead you to positive outcomes.
7. DON’T MAKE YOUR MIND A SLAVE OF OTHER PEOPLE’S THOUGHTS
If your thoughts are driven by others, your mind is the slave of other people’s thoughts, and you can’t develop faith in yourself because you are mostly accepting other people’s opinions.
In reality, outside people can’t speak about what truly you can do in life. If you don’t know about yourself, how outside people will know about you? It’s your perception; now change your thinking and change your life to success and joyfulness. You have to create a belief for every task you want to do and succeed there; the seed of belief is the emotion that you create in your mind.
Your mind is a thought garden: Plants are positive thoughts and weeds are negative thoughts. Now ask yourself which thoughts among all thoughts in your mind are more valuable to build your successful life, and who can help you to resolve your problems.
8. BE THE MASTER OF YOUR THOUGHTS
A German-born theoretical physicist and the winner of the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics Albert Einstein observed:
“The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.”
Your anger is the most destructive and negative emotion that always harms your life. When you become the master of your thoughts, you gather more powers to take control of your emotions. Managing thoughts is quite difficult but possible for people who have the inner consciousness of staying in harmony.
Your action follows your thoughts; as you think and believe, you do the same kinds of work to get the same kinds of results.
Make your mind disciplined through the positive thoughts you think, the positive words you speak, and the positive deeds you do to make your dreams fulfilled. Be honest with yourself and do every work that brings peace and inner joy.
9. DO WORK THAT GIVES INNER PEACE
One day, I met a successful person in an educational institute, and asked him about the real sense of success by his perception; he said, “success is what we get peace of mind by doing the things that are needed for achieving any objectives which we dream of.” We can only attain inner peace by doing such work which is truly honest work and good for people and society and your purpose must help others in positive ways. The people who work sincerely and help other people and society are considered as great work, and these people are revered by many people now and later on.
Working with sincerity, love, and faith must fetch positive results. We must attain success if we sincerely do the work with a positive mindset and spirit. Your sincerity and love in your work help to create positive energies within your thought process and you get going with optimism, faith, hope, and lots of positive expectations.
