The Glass Is Half Full! Start Thinking Positively

Oct 13, 2007
Many people use the word lousy to describe their lives. This could well be the result of a major failure in life that has affected their thinking and outlook on life it self. It is only too human to magnify your failures and remain down in the dumps for long periods of time. Just one mistake can be so magnified in the mind that we see ourselves as only a product of that mistake. Imagine a clean white piece of paper on which we spill one drop of ink? Is the blot of ink the only value of that paper?

Unfortunately that is how we tend to see things sometimes. We forget about the rest of the clean sheet and only focus our attention on the spot of ink. It is the same with how some of us see our own lives. One major mistake can point all our attention towards it, and we begin thinking that fail is all we can do. And given the power of the human mind that is exactly what we may well turn into. Thinking that you are going to fail will no doubt make you fail, and then you will have two blots on that piece of paper to think about, if you know what that means. This turns your failures into a vicious circle, and the snowball effect makes sure you keep getting lower and lower self esteem.

If you are in such a cycle of thought, you need to get out of it immediately in order to get your life back together. The answer is simple. Remember, it was negative thinking that got you into the trouble that you are in, and it is the exact opposite of that that will get you out of that cycle of thought, positive thinking. Positive attitudes can turn a failure into a victory.

Many a time people become their own worst enemies by invoking negative thoughts. Stop speaking negatively to your self. When you force positive thoughts into your mind, you will begin to see your life take a turn around and that negative cycle of thought turns into a positive cycle. Negative thinking only lets you see the flaws in every area of your life, and thanks to this you miss out on every opportunity that life may present you with. When you begin thinking positive, the reverse is true - you only see the opportunities and do not take notice of the flaws that could hold you back. You walk in confidence and with pride, and are now tuned in to success at whatever it is that you may plan.

Turn your life around by getting realistic. You know it is not true that one failure means that you will always fail at whatever you try, so stop listening to that voice in your head which tells you that.
