9 Tips On How To Build Positive Thinking

Aug 17, 2007
Being the boss of your very own online business has its advantages and disadvantages. On one hand, you do not have anyone telling you what to do. On the other hand, you do not have anyone to give you that extra push or motivational support when you are feeling down and any emotional support.

For example, at a typical 9 to 5 job, you can vent to other employees about your boss, about how unfairly you be treated, or how a client or customer is being completely irrational.

However, when you are working at home and in business for yourself, you are the boss - you do not have to face-to-face interactions with employees or contractors. As a result, you do not have anyone to vent to or to give you that motivational pep talk that you sometimes need.

So, what happens? Well, you probably let negative feelings build up, or sometime even worse, you probably vent to yourself with negative self-talk, which will slow down your productivity and makes you feel just plain lousy.

If you are feeling lousy, then how can you ensure that your business will prosper and grow? How can you enhance business and personal relationships? Briefly, you cannot.

To leave those "negativity thinking and lousy feeling" into the trash and be motivated, you should have positive mental attitude, here are some tips to help you build up your positive thinking.

1. Be Committed - Make a positive commitment to yourself that you will do your very best and be all that you can be. Feel proud of yourself on what you are doing and never, ever, ever giving up.

2. Accept Challenges - Being your own boss and owner of your own online business can be scary and a bit intimidating at times. Do not afraid of fail, learn from your mistakes and you constantly grow.

3. Be in Control - Keep your mind focused on important things. Set goals and priorities for what you want to do and accomplish. Control your own destiny.

4. Do not Criticize Yourself - There is no use criticizing yourself once you have made a mistake. Simply learn from your mistakes and move on. Create your own feelings and make your own decisions. Do not let other people trigger your mental habits. In addition, do not associate yourself with negative people or people who try to discourage your business efforts.

5. Take a Time Out - Your business still there and will not go anywhere if you take some time off. Do not worry about impending projects. Everyone needs a break. If you do not, your mental health will surely suffer - and so will your business relationships.

6. Practice Makes Perfect - Stop worrying about getting everything right. No one is perfect, it is okay to make mistake, and we all do though. Accept mistakes as a part of life and move on.

7. Pleasing Yourself - It is good to try to please others, but not at the sake of displeasing yourself. Thus, make sure you remember that everyone has the right to have angry feelings. You do not have to please everyone all of the time.

8. Do not Afraid to Try - Just because you have not tried something does not mean that you will not be good at it. Give yourself permission to try something new, and then do the best you can. If you do not get succeed at the first time, try again. Do not let "I can't" or "I can't do it" hang you.

9. Ask For Help - There nothing wrong with asking for help. We are only human, do not think you are incompetent simply because you cannot do it all, treat yourself with kindness, get others help when you need and learn to enjoy life.

In conclusion, you can maintain and develop a positive mental attitude. You can become your own biggest fan. You can turn negatives into positives - or like the saying goes "turn that frown upside down!"

As a result, your productivity will increase, stress will be eliminated, and you will be able to enable yourself to start living and enjoying your newfound freedom of owning your own business.
