Become a positive thinker and turn thoughts into action
Has anyone ever told you to “think positive”? It could have been a parent, teacher, relative or friend. And what thought crossed your mind when you heard it? Perhaps you thought that “thinking positive” is useless and that it doesn’t work, or that it’s impossible to achieve. Ok, hold onto that thought.
Why is it when you feel down, the whole world seems to be against you; but when you’re happy, it feels like you can conquer the world? The truth is, the world around you hasn’t changed drastically during those times, but you have. In short, how you think determines how you feel.
The power of your mind is at the essence of the Law of Attraction, which states, “What we think about, we bring about.” So if there is something you want in your life, you can attract it to you by visualising your desired results, using affirmations, expecting good things to happen, being appreciative, and taking inspired action.
To put it simply, if you make it a habit to think positive, positive things will come your way. Is it really that simple? How does it work?
Yes, positive thinking works, but you must also combine it with actions, because thoughts alone cannot move mountains. But firstly, realise that your thoughts are very powerful. They can give rise to feelings, and from those feelings come words and actions. Simply put, your thoughts, feelings and actions are all interconnected. Together, they create your life. So if your thoughts are negative, everything else will be too.
However, if you’re not used to positive thinking, it may not come easily at first. But it is possible to train your mind to think about good things that will help you to feel empowered, confident and capable.
There are six steps to becoming a positive thinker:
- Know your goals and deepest desires
- Cultivate an attitude of gratitude and remind yourself of the things you are thankful for when you feel sad or angry
- Watch your self-talk and stop using negative words and expressions to describe things or ourselves
- Focus on the good in every situation
- Picture your dreams and make a picture board with images and words that inspire you
- And last, but most importantly, take action!
When you know what you want in life, talk and think to yourself in empowering ways, focus on the good and are able to visualise your dreams, you’re ready to take positive action. Though it may sound daunting at first, you can take small steps by making a commitment to take one action each day that will get you closer to your goals.
If you want to take action and start giving off positive vibes, you must first understand what we call the ‘words/result relationship.’ It is all about the words that we use, which give us thoughts, which in return has feelings attached to them.
Each word we use gives out either positive of negative vibes. Whatever words we use and thoughts they generate, the Law of Attraction matches them and keeps giving us the same results. So the only way to change our result from bad to good is by changing our vibes. That happens when we reset ourselves by asking the crucial question, “So, what do I want?” This gives us the path towards what we want and should act upon.
The secret to using the Law of Attraction in an effective way is to do the work consistently and to work with a coach. At the Law of Attraction Centre, Malaysia, our coaches teach, guide and equip you to learn, do and teach the message of the Law of Attraction. It is in the consistent practise of simple formulas, techniques and tools (with guidance) that you can generate the best results.
Last, but not least, remember that if your world cannot change, you can. You have to mental power to remove negative obstacles in your mind that stand in the way of your goals. So rather than think, “I can’t do this!” train your mind to think, “Here is my moment to shine!”
