Positive thoughts are the topic of my blog ‘Thought for the day’ today. We cannot talk about positive thinking, positive attitude or positive mentality without discussing importance of positive thoughts in developing these on a daily basis. In fact, it would be illogical to talk about positive mental attitude without understanding that thoughts are the foundation of any type of thinking, negative or positive. A set of thoughts constructs a certain paradigm or pattern of thinking, which later controls our lives. Thoughts are like bricks which you build your house of mind with. So, be careful how you build your house and be sure to use positive thoughts as bricks for your house. Of course, if you want your house to be strong.
Positive thoughts carry positive energy
Most people look at thoughts as some inanimate objects that have no big influence on us. However, nothing can be further from the truth. Thoughts do carry energy which can be used to build your life or destroy it. It is quite obvious that positive thoughts carry positive energy which you can build your life with and see how everything around starts blossoming. On the other hand, negative thoughts are full of negative energy which can ruin your life if you continue dwelling on them for too long.
Learn to monitor your thoughts
We cannot live with empty minds. There always is some thought in our mind and very often there can be quite many of them even at the same time. You have to study yourself and see which thoughts you can allow to stay in your mind and which you have to get rid of. By monitoring your thoughts you will understand yourself better too. So often we do not understand why we behave as we do. Most of us would like to get rid of some bad character features but are not able to. The answer to the problem lies in our thoughts.
Get rid of bad thoughts by replacing them with good and positive thoughts
What do you do when you notice bad thoughts in your mind? You have to get rid of them. It is much easier said than done. How do you do it? You simply replace them with good and positive thoughts. It means you change direction of your thoughts. By concentrating on negative you allow negative thoughts to reign in your mind. By concentrating on positive you push all negative thoughts out and invite positive thoughts that immediately start changing your attitude, feelings and reactions to the things that can be of a very negative nature in themselves.
Invite positive thoughts by looking at everything from a positive point of view
Most people do not understand how they can fill their minds with positive thoughts. That is not difficult at all. Just try to see every situation from a positive point of view. Let us say you have lost a job. It is a serious problem, right? However, this can also be a big opportunity for you to get a much better job or even start your own business and become financially independent. You can concentrate on that or you can start complaining and crying because you have lost your income. Some people when facing a problem immediately lose all hope and some even start drinking. Everything depends on your attitude. I would encourage you not to give in to negative thoughts and feelings, but concentrating on the bright side of life. You will see how this will help you to go through all hardships in life and get a better job.
There can be a lot of things that can be said about positive thoughts. I think I only scratched the surface of the topic. Therefore, I am going to update this post together with a few more posts which I consider to be very important. If you want to learn more on the topic I recommend reading a few of my previous posts:
