Thinking positive thoughts every day will allow you to live a more positive life. It’s easy to be overcome by negative thoughts and experiences, and it’s important to create a positive dialogue with yourself to get you through those tough times.
Some people call these thoughts positive self-talk, and this form of inner dialogue can allow you to reach new heights as a person, overcoming all that stands in your way.
Understanding Positive Self Talk
Positive self-talk is the practice of responding to those negative thoughts that creep into your mind throughout the day. You know the thoughts: the ones that have you thinking, “I can’t” instead of “I can,” or “it’s too hard” instead of “I can do it.”
When you replace such negativity with positive thoughts, you can bring about astounding changes in your life and the way you feel about yourself.
For instance, when you’re starting a new business, and your mind says, “There’s no way I’m going to make it. What if I fail?” you can stop this dialogue in its tracks.
Instead of letting your mind go on and on, envisioning one disaster after another right up to the moment you’re fired, you can respond with positive thoughts. These positive thoughts can also be called positive affirmations.
Positive Affirmations and You
It can take a lot of practice to make the change to positive self-talk when you’ve always experienced negative self-talk. Perhaps you can’t even remember a time when this negative dialogue wasn’t playing in the background of your life.
You may need to put some effort into responding to the negativity with positive thoughts, but by using positive affirmations, the effort required is an easy task. Positive affirmations allow you to replace your negativity, one thought at a time!
Many people seek out lists of positive affirmations to help them come up with positive responses. Here are a few affirmation examples:
- I let go of any negative feelings about myself or my life and accept all that is good.
- I am courageous. I am willing to act and face my fears.
- I have the knowledge to make smart decisions for myself.
- I choose to think positively and create a wonderful and successful life for myself.
- I can never fail, for everything that happens contributes to me being better.
- I am grateful that my life is so happy and successful.
