It can be said that â€œYou can change your life only by changing your thinkingâ€. The thinking can be positive or negative. It depends on the self-talk. Self-talk is the endless stream of unspoken thoughts that run through your head every day. These automatic thoughts can be positive or negative. Some of your self-talk comes from logic and reason. Other self-talk may arise from misconceptions that you create because of lack of information. If the thoughts that run through your head are mostly negative, your outlook on life is more likely pessimistic. If your thoughts are mostly positive, you're likely an optimist â€” someone who practices positive thinking.
Positive thinking just means that you approach the unpleasantness in a more positive and productive way. You think the best is going to happen, not the worst. This type of thinking is not only helpful for psychological well-being but also for physical well-being. It reduces the stress of life.
Optimists believe that their own actions result in positive things happening, that they are responsible for their own happiness, and that they can expect more good things to happen in the future. Optimists donâ€™t blame themselves when bad things happen. They view bad events as results of something outside of themselves. Pessimists think the opposite way, however. They blame themselves for the bad things that happen in their lives and think that one mistake means more will inevitably come. Pessimists see positive events as flukes that are outside of their controlâ€”a lucky streak that probably wonâ€™t happen again.
Because of their thought processes, optimists have much brighter futures. A bad circumstance or event is taken in stride, viewed as a temporary setbackâ€”not a permanent way of life. Even if something bad happens today, a positive thinker believes that good things will come again in the future.
As I am a positive thinker, I can tell you from my experience that if you can be a positive thinker your positive power will force the unpleasant thing to turn into the more pleasant thing that you have ever seen. And if you are a negative thinker, then do not be upset. Believe in yourself. You can do it. When you will start to believe in yourself, you have already stepped forward for being a positive thinker. So do not worry, you can be a positive thinker very soon.
Best of luck.
