At a time like this it is really easy to get caught up in a cycle of negative thinking. It does seems like nothing is going right, so you think negative thoughts and fill your mind with worry about the next bad thing that is going to happen; whether you are going to be able to keep paying your bills or even if you will still have a job next year.
All that negativity is not much fun, for one thing. It is impossible to be very happy about things if you are filling your mind with worry, doom and gloom. It is also hard to see the good things that are already in your life if you are worrying about those things fading away.
And the truth is the more you think negatively, the more negative effects you are going to see in your life. You might find that after a day of negativity you are actually feeling physically sick like you have a cold coming on. This is not your imagination, it is a real physical manifestation of your negative thoughts, and a clear example of how you are able to influence what happens to you through your thoughts and feelings.
On the flip side you can also influence what happens to you in a positive way, through positive thinking and feelings. Focusing on the good that is already in your life and thinking about the greater good that will come to you in the future, the goals you want to achieve and the things you want to have, will make more good things come into your life.
The key is to focus on what it is that you want in your life, not what you do not want. Clearly you all want security, peace and stability in your lives, your jobs and your families, but all too often you think about what would happen if those things were taken away from you. You dwell on lost jobs, illness and divorce, and those negative thoughts and feelings just bring more negative energy into your lives.
If you want to feel more positive, think more positive thoughts. If you want more goodness in your life, think about the good things you have and how you would like your life to be. Imagine a life that is calm, a secure job that provides all the money you need and a family that is happy and loving, and that is what you will have.
Positive thinking is not just a way to make you feel better in hard times (though it will do that). It’s a concrete thing that you can do to turn your life around, no matter how crazily things are swirling around you.
