Positive Thinking: Why Changing the Way You Think is So Hard

Today’s video is about positive thinking and why this seemingly simple concept, can actually be incredibly difficult to do, so stay tuned.

Let’s face it, at one time or another, we all feel like nothing is working right in our lives.  It’s easy to get frustrated with the way things are going and then let yourself wallow in negative thinking.  One negative thought leads to another, then another, and so on.

Positive Thinking

This pattern of negative thinking and negative self-talk makes our lives seem even worse.  That’s when depression and hopelessness can take over (if you let them).

You’ve all heard about the power of positive thinking and what a dramatic difference it can make in your mood and achieving important life goals.

But, if you’ve always drifted towards more negative than positive thinking, how can you turn this around?  It sounds easy enough, but when you try to be more positive, it just doesn’t seem to be working.  This leads you right back to the old negative thought pattern. I’m going to share four reasons with you that explain…

Simple Steps to Positive Thinking

It Isn’t Always EasyPositive Thinking

While the process to change from negative to positive thinking is simple, it’s not always easy.  Changing any kind of behaviour can be anything but easy.

When you try to follow the process of replacing negative thoughts with positive ones, it is really a rather simple thing to do.  And because you know it’s simple and fail to do it, negative thoughts and guilt takes over.

It’s easy to get discouraged if you didn’t plan well, or didn’t understand something completely, and then you go back to your negative thoughts.

Doing the Work

If you understand wpositive livinghat you need to do to change your thoughts but don’t actually put in the work to make changes, nothing will happen.

For example, if you understand that in order to lose weight you need to consume less calories and exercise but then you don’t do these things, you probably aren’t going to hit your weight loss objectives.

So as with anything in your life, you need to actually plan the work and work the plan.  Understanding alone doesn’t work.

Self-Blame vs. Self-Empowerment

One of your worst enemies is self-blame.  Looking back in time and blaming yourself for things you cannot change will only feed your negative thoughts and feelings.

Every decision you make is based on what you think is a good decision at the time.  Even if your gut is telling you it’s empowermentsomething you may regret, you move forward with your decision based on your current state of mind.

Self-blame is looking back and beating yourself up for making what you now realise was a bad decision.

Now when you are in a more positive state of mind, you can look back and realise that you could have made a different or better decision.  That is self-empowerment, which allows you to move forward confident that you can make better decisions in the future.

Positive Thinking is Your Only Option

Positive ThinkingIf you want to be unhappy, then keep thinking negative thoughts.  Or argue that your way of thinking is right and everyone else is wrong.

No, the only option for you to lead a happier life is to change your negative thoughts to positive ones.

So make those changes and commit to really working on it. Make positive thinking a real part of your life and start feeling the benefits
