Are you fed up not succeeding in the challenges of life?
Do you want a 360-degree change forever, and to never look back again?
Let me unveil one of the secrets I have explored to overcome my failures. That secret is to understand “The Power of Positive Mental Attitude”.
The concept of “Positive Mental Attitude” also known as PMA was first introduced by Napoleon Hill. He introduced it in his book “Think and Grow Rich”. Yet, the book does not use such words, but it certainly tells you how to lead with a positive attitude and get success in your business and life. Napoleon Hill has inspired many individuals to understand the power of a positive mental attitude.
Do you know that positive thinking is an emotional and mental attitude? It is a continuous process of training your mind to think about good things and expect a good result.
Some may call it undue expectations. But being reasonable and realistic is necessary throughout. You are so positive about finding a magic lamp, which you will rub and the Genie will appear to fulfil your wishes! Well, I don’t want to disappoint you but that’s never going to happen. We are not talking about this type of positivity. We are talking about making small changes to our attitude and expecting bigger changes and positive outcomes in our lives. That sounds more realistic and achievable than the Genie?
7 Ways how to Create a Positive Mental Attitude:
I can tell you there are many tiny changes we can make to create a positive mental attitude. After all, it’s all about the right attitude along with the right emotions.
- Smile More
Studies have proven that people who smile more often, are more likely to be successful in their lives. Smile is the most beautiful and powerful expression. Smiling at tiny pleasures will not just make your mood better it will also attract contentment from your surroundings. It will have an immediate impact on the people around you. You can influence the behaviour of people around you with the power of your positive smile. Isn’t it magical?
- Complain less
You are aware of the fact there are many things beyond your control. You cannot control them, but whining over them won’t make things better either. The less you complain, the more your brain is training to focus on the positive side. Just make sure you are heading in the right direction.
- Be Flexible and Open
We stop learning and growing when we think we are perfect. Be open to criticism, and be flexible about your improvement. Because those who are in denial of improvement, never grow in their lives. There is always room for betterment in our personality, behaviour, and attitude. Learning For Life
- Practice Self Love
Have you ever thought that you need love from yourself too? Whenever we abuse ourselves we naturally develop a sense of hatred towards ourselves. If anything happens wrong with us, we start bombarding ourselves with being the reason for it.
We need the same amount of love, compassion, and acknowledgement we give to our loved ones.
- Surround yourself with positive people
Our surroundings have a huge effect on our mood, feelings, mindset, and behaviour.
Have you ever turned on the music in your car in a happy mood wishing to play a song of your choice? The first song you play is a sad song, you stop there and decide to listen to it because this song used to be your favourite a long time back. The moment it ends you feel extremely miserable, and hopeless without any reason. What’s the big deal then? It was just a sad song, wasn’t it?
Whatever we do or surround ourselves with hugely overpowers our internal emotions. You should always choose to surround yourself with positive people and positive activities. Success Stories.
Achieving a set goal is the best feeling and a boost to morale. Set goals that are realistic and attainable.
You can feel a sense of inner peace when you are able to achieve your set goals. Do not push yourself towards unrealistic goals because, if you fail to achieve them you are going to be disappointed. In this case, we do not appreciate our efforts.
- Let go of the past and focus on the present
Do you realize the time passed has no actual value? What is gone is gone. Most of the time we hold on to the incidents of our past, they are highly toxic for our brain and personal growth. Instead, we should be focusing on the present. Because that is what we can take control of. Neither the past nor the future should be something to be worried about. The feeling of not being able to change your past, or predict your future is stressful. Live in the moment you are provided. Enjoy it, feel it, and make the most out of it. The Power Of Now is a great book by Eckhart Tolle if you would like to find out more.
