Positive mindset is crucial for anyone wishing to get the best from life. Whether fulfilling dreams, achieving goals or success with something, including romantic relationships, healthy lifestyle, and business success, positive mindset is essential.

Positive attitude is one thing, it can be very surface level though.

Having a positive mindset, with positive thinking and the ability to sustain a positive outlook, stemming from core values and beliefs, is something completely different. It pervades every aspect of being, and yields deeper, more more fulfilling results.

While most people can have a positive outlook at times, a more positive mindset is usually possible.

Most people have aspects of negative thinking that crop up at different times. Often questioning the value of things when challenges arise, which can result in unpleasant mental health issues. It’s easy to maintain a positive mindset when times are good, it is infinitely more valuable having a positive mindset when times are tough and challenges coming in constantly.

Once you have the capability to develop a positive mindset, where you can maintain that positive attitude, even in the face of the most adverse situations, then you have the capacity to come through winning, every time. Mindset is everything in life, so getting this right is important for anyone wanting to achieve their dreams.

Developing A Positive Mindset And Increasing The Amount Of Positive Outcomes In Your Life Can Be Easy

What Is A Positive Mindset

The Power Of Positive Thinking Is What Enables Success In All Things

A positive mindset is one where regardless of what circumstances are encountered, there is a belief and understanding that everything will work out in a way that is advantageous and good.

Something which is core to this being possible is having all core values and beliefs in flow with the perception of positive outcome, and that even if there are challenges in the present they will abate as time draws closer to success.

Factors That Detract From Ability To Maintain Positive Mental Attitude

When there are limiting decisions, along with the limiting beliefs that stem from them, then the capacity of a person’s mind to be truly positive becomes lessened. Limiting beliefs and decisions are like anchors at best, creating drag that hinders progress and happiness. At worst limiting beliefs overtake other thoughts and result in an active pull in the opposite direction of success. Often the person involved is completely unaware of such issues as they occur on the level of the unconscious mind.

Ergo, a truly positive mindset is one free from limiting decisions, with values and beliefs in complete alignment with positive outlook and faith in success coming whatever the current situation.

How To Change Your Mindset From Negative To Positive

Positive Thinking Has To Be Nurtured Mindfully To Grow Healthily

While many people believe that a positive attitude, and use of positive words such as affirmations, are all that’s needed, that approach can be incredibly slow. It also tends to mask over the core issues, limiting decisions and beliefs, which cause negativity, and can lead to toxic positivity as people blindly refuse to accept their reality.

In order to change your mindset in a truly effective way, and create a truly positive mindset, deep mindset changes are required. Along with a conscious focus to maintain those changes once they’ve been made.

Eliminating Negative Thinking

Having A Positive Mental Attitude Greatly Benefits Mental Health

Negative self talk along with negative thoughts are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to toxicity within the mind.

Both stem from limiting beliefs, which in turn stem from limiting decisions, things which most people remain unaware of due to them being held deep inside their unconscious mind.

While you can begin to stop negative self talk, and disregard negative thoughts, using techniques including mindfulness, that path is a slow one, and rarely gets into the depths needed to completely change your mindset.

Over time, and with a huge amount of practice, meditation can yield answers. Though this can take years, even when people meditate for around an hour every day. Something more active is needed for those who are focused on being truly positive, and creating success in the the various aspects of their life which are important to them.

Using Time-Line Therapy For Rapid Yet Truly Effective Mental Health Change

Time-Line Therapy is incredibly powerful when it comes to getting rid of old emotions, then releasing limiting beliefs and the limiting decisions they stem from.

Regardless of age, most people can release a lifetime’s worth of negative emotions in approximately one hour, providing a skilled practitioner is helping them, or they have learned the techniques through a good teacher.

From there, it is possible to remove the core most limiting decision, from which all others hang off, causing a cascade effect as all the limiting decisions fall away and cease to act. This can often be done in around 15 to 20 minutes, including time for replacing the core limiting decision with one which is both positive and empowering.

The effect of this 75 to 80 minutes of work which culminates in releasing and letting go of limiting beliefs and decisions completely changes the lives of those doing it. Going a long way towards truly eliminating negative thinking and enabling a more positive outlook as a result. Ongoing work, and staying focused is required in order to stay on track though.

Nurturing Positive Thinking

Replace Negative People In Your Life With Positive Ones To Be Happier
For most people, positive thinking and the ability to hold a positive outlook only encompasses a small portion of their time. In short, it is a struggle for most.

While certain elements such as watching the news, seeing the behavior of others in the streets, and feeling negative effects of the economy or work can pull people of track, there is still opportunity for holding a positive space mentally from which you can develop and grow. As a note on this, scientific research suggests that using positive thought replacement has been beneficial in overcoming generalized anxiety disorder.

Developing a growth mindset, as it has become commonly termed, is a good way of doing this. Letting go of fixed ideas, and becoming open to the option of change and improvement in whatever area of life it is wanted or needed.

Consciously Creating A Positive Outlook

Keeping a positive outlook does require conscious effort.

There are times when positive thinking is very easy to do, i.e. when things are on track and going well.

There are also times when challenges come, and things can become difficult. Plans going awry, with potential setbacks occurring. Those are the most important times for keeping a positive mindset, and that requires discipline.

If you are planning on getting the best of a positive mindset, then working with the law of attraction is a very good way to get things going on a conscious level. One of the reasons for this is the third law of attraction which states ‘the present is always perfect.’ Essentially, while you may lack understanding of why your situation is the way it is, it is that way because of what you are working on achieving.

It’s relatively well known that from challenge comes opportunity.

Challenge can bring about self development, acquisition of new skills and behaviors, relocation, and a plethora of other things, all of which can bring greater benefit both short and long term. Sometimes challenges come around as they are the shortest path to achieving the desired result, provided they are worked with properly.

Keeping In Control And Consciously Staying On Track For Positive Events
Positive Thinking And Mindset Are Core To Law Of Attraction Success

While your conscious mind is all about deciding what you want to do, your unconscious mind is what controls how things in life actually go, and the day to day of things. When you decide you want to do something, a signal goes to your unconscious mind which then goes through all the factors involved, and sets a course. Because it works on the path of least resistance it will seek out what it sees as the easiest way to achieve success, even if that means a less comfortable route than you desired.

There are times when your unconscious sees gaps in knowledge, behavior, and resources, yet it knows that those things are needed in order to fulfill your goal. Sometimes you have to put the work in so that you can get the result.

This is part of why a growth mindset is so beneficial, it helps with adjusting and flowing to your intended goal.

This is also why it is essential to maintain awareness that ‘the present is always perfect.’ Regardless of your comprehension or comfort level, unless you can see the truly big picture, it is impossible to understand why you’re going through what you’re going through. Often there are challenges due to limiting beliefs, hence why cleaning them out first is so wise. Beyond limiting beliefs, challenges are usually what bring the most growth and self development.

So consciously creating and maintaining that positive outlook, regardless of your situation, is essential.

The Wisdom Of Keeping A Gratitude Journal

What often helps people in the early stages with this transition to more positive thinking is keeping a gratitude journal, and is thus something always recommended to coaching clients.

Noting down everything good, which you appreciate and are thankful for, is powerful. It helps tune your mind to the good things in the world, and nurture a healthy positive outlook on your environment.

A gratitude journal can take time for its greatest effects to come through on a conscious level. Even at the start though, most people do find they begin to smile more as recognition of goodness begins taking root in their mind.

Longer term there are cumulative well being and health benefits, which stem from the practice of gratitude and being a positive person, with less stress being core to them.

Reinforce Positive Mindset Through Positive Self Talk

Positive Thinking And A More Positive Outlook Attract Success Faster

Positive self talk is very good for helping to keep yourself generally optimistic, hence it also benefits consciously creating a positive outlook.

Beyond that, regular positive self talk, including things like positive affirmations, help rewrite and reinforce patterns of thinking positively.

Positive thinking stems from core values and beliefs, things which are subject to change.

The best way to change values and beliefs, so that they realign most effectively with your intended goal or dream, is through good mindset coaching using neuro linguistic programming and Time-Line Therapy to make those deep changes in a very short period of time.

When you are doing things yourself, then constant repetition of things, in the form of affirmations, helps to establish beliefs. The challenge being that it does not remove any contrary limiting beliefs that could cause issues.

Self talk goes way beyond positive affirmations.

There is a high need to stop negative self talk which often comes up during times of challenge, though equally well can come up during good times when there are issues with self esteem and self worth. Again why getting high quality mindset coaching upfront can be so powerful. Because negative thoughts and internal dialogue which come up during good times can destroy chances of success. All because people doubt their worthiness, due to low self esteem, lack of self love, and poor self worth.

When you practice positive self talk you can override the negative dialogue within your mind, helping you stay on track, establishing stronger belief in you own worth and value as a person.

Using Positive Words And Positive Emotions To Reinforce Change
Holding A Focused Positive Outlook Greatly Helps Attract Success

More positive self talk used on a regular basis creates reinforcement, an element of caution and conscious awareness is needed when choosing wording though.

Avoiding dual meanings, linguistic ambiguities, and things for which there could be a negative meaning is very important. Going deeper into neuro linguistic programming can greatly help with the more detailed understanding of words, meaning and potential behind them. Granted, going deeper into neuro linguistic programming requires a serious commitment, especially if you are doing things like the master practitioner certification which involves a lot of study.

Be mindful and choose your words carefully when using positive affirmations and words to reinforce change.

Wrapping up well chosen words with positive emotions helps create a more holistic change, and develops positive psychology faster.

Words themselves can have multiple meanings, hence the caution advised in choosing them. When words are carefully chosen, and have focused meanings, which are then combined with relevant emotions, the mind accepts them in a far more powerful way.

Words are often, just words. Emotions however bring about greater actions, chemical releases within the brain bringing physical shifts as a result, which then precipitate other changes.

Emotions are extremely powerful, hence why good negotiators do their best to remain emotionally flat, yet show empathy. When you can influence emotions in the direction you wish someone to go, they are more likely to go that way. As an example, if you influence someone to be angry, they’re unlikely to want to spend time with you. Yet when your actions bring happiness, or love, then people will likely wish to spend time with you.

Equally well, when you put yourself into an emotional state when you are using affirmations, then your mind responds accordingly. With anger, decisions are created on an unconscious level that result in beliefs, i.e. limiting beliefs, about that thing. When you put yourself in a positive state, creating happiness as a feeling around the affirmations and words you are using, then you develop a more positive mindset as a result, as those things become more deeply encoded within your mind.

The effect of emotions should never be overlooked in terms of their power in developing a positive attitude.

This is one reason why a lot of people tune out from doing things like checking the news when they want to influence their mental health in a more positive direction. Equally well, watching, or reading, things which are inspirational or funny, bring mental health benefits and help establish a more positive outlook. With comedy there is a word of caution, things which involve others being hurt, psychologically or physically, send negative signals to the mind which create contradictory thought patterns, so be careful.

A degree of wise discernment is beneficial when deciding what goes into both your mind and your body. Putting clean, healthy food with plenty of nutrition is good for your body. Equally well, taking in things which create and support healthy thoughts and positive growth is beneficial to the development and maintenance of a positive mindset.

So, choose your words carefully when shifting your internal dialogue, and wrap them up with positive emotions that are aligned in intent and will carry you more effectively into the state you wish to be.

Keeping A Positive Mindset

Positive Mental Attitude Helps You Overcome Challenges In Life

Being a positive thinker is an ongoing thing, at least when you’re committed to getting the best results possible, and success in life.

It can be very easy to get pulled off track, things happen in life and there are negative aspects to most things which all need to be overcome. While creating a positive mindset can be done relatively easily, the maintenance required to ensure an ongoing positive attitude means a level of focus and energy is needed to keep things going.

Maintaining Well Being To Help Stay Positive

Positive Mindset Brings Success And Many Great Mental Health Benefits
Looking after your well being, with careful attention to both your mental health and your physical health, is important. Well being, along with financial issues, are two of the things that drag people into negative thought spirals all too easily.

A healthy lifestyle, and a healthier diet, has a good impact on both body and mind. When you eat healthy food and get regular exercise, it becomes easier to maintain motivation, feel inspiration and generally be more effective with everything you do. Hence, you feel more positive too.

One thing various fitness apps and experts have been in strong agreement with is doing 10,000 steps a day at a good walking pace. There are numerous health benefits that come from this, it is good for circulation, with the sole of your feet doing a lot for the pumping of blood it help to engage with them properly. Increasing blood flow helps to ensure things are running smoothly, and blood is being filtered properly too. Thus decreasing toxins which can impact mental health due to the way they interact with brain and body chemistry.

Movement also helps keep the lymphatic system working efficiently, which as the lymphatic system forms a crucial part of the body’s immune system, is incredibly important. A healthy immune system after all helps keep you in good health, and it is easier to retain an optimistic attitude when your health is good. An optimistic attitude has also been clinically shown to influence better health outcomes.

The Effects Of Who You Spend Time With On Thinking Positively

Maintaining Positive Psychology Is Easier With Good Coaching
Keeping around positive people is wise.

Spending time with friends has been shown to have positive health benefits on a holistic level, there are clear psychological benefits, with further physical health benefits that come as a result of the mind body connection.

Caution is required in terms of those you call friends and how much time you spend with them, when you wish to maintain a positive mindset that is.

Some people are incredibly negative, and can drag others down as a result of how they behave.

Spending time around like minded people is incredibly wise.

When you spend your time with those who actively think the same way you do, or in a way that lifts you up and energizes you to be more of the person you wish to be, then you make your life and your achievement of success easier.

Even Those Who Practice Positive Thinking Have Their Moments

Granted, everyone has their moments. Being a positive thinker can be easy most of the time. In face of a bereavement or traumatic experience, time for adjustment is often needed, and support from friends can prove incredibly valuable. So measure what’s going on with those you spend your time with, give them time and understanding as appropriate, and if they are becoming toxic in their behavior then modify yours as a result.

One commonly cited point is that people are the product of the five people they spend the mot time with.

This is largely due to how mindsets interact, altering values and beliefs, while shifting people through negative thoughts and positive thinking depending on the people they’re with. Choose carefully who your time is spent with, it is your most precious resource in life. Success can come by association rather than skill, so if certain relationships are problematic, first change yourself and let go of all limiting beliefs and decisions holding you back. If things are still problematic with those same people, consider moving on from them.

Having Regular Coaching Sessions To Maintain A Positive Mindset

Regular Mindset Coaching Helps Ensure A More Positive Outlook

Doing a one off big hit breakthrough coaching session to cleanse out and let go of everything that was holding you back, and propel you forward into positive thinking, and build your mind and life into a positive psychology powerhouse is a great thing to do. Things happen in life though, and getting regular coaching to help you stay on track can be immensely valuable as you entrench that power of positive thinking more deeply in your life.

Yes, keeping a gratitude journal, being cautious who you spend time with, and all the other tips shared, will help you keep on track, to an extent.

It does require a high degree of discipline to stop yourself from slipping into bad habits, and ongoing focus.

Thoughts which seem innocuous can actually be quite damaging to a positive attitude and mental health. They have a tendency to normalize, breed and spread, causing the person involved to become nihilistic at times, and stray from the path they set off on, instead taking them somewhere incredibly unhealthy and potentially worse than how they where previously.

This is one reason why successful people have a good coach they work with on a regular basis.

Regular coaching helps reinforce and enshrine a positive mindset so it can achieve the most good.

Of course, everyone has their own circumstances in life, and as much as positive thinking does lift situations, it can take time until financial freedom kicks in. Until that point, most people have a budget they have to work within. While stretching things can be wise when you are doing things like breakthrough coaching, so as to cleanse your mindset, releasing old traumas and big issues which are holding you back. It is wise to know your budget and work within it when planning regular coaching sessions.

Keeping Up Positive Impact And Ensuring Reduced Risk Of Drift

While once every two weeks, or once a week, is especially empowering, and will greatly accelerate progress towards success. That regularity and additional time with an expert coach who will shape your mind so it can retain itself in a space of positive psychology more easily in face of challenges.

For some people that level of regularity can be impractical, budgets are budgets, and while working with the world’s best coach is wise in terms of the impact it has on positive thinking and attracting success, working with such skilled coaches comes at a certain level of investment. So when having coaching on a weekly or fortnightly level is impractical for you, talk with your coach to develop a coaching plan which fits both your budget, and your goals for success.

Mindfulness For Reinforcing An Optimistic Attitude

The Ability To Reduce Stress Is One Of Benefits Of Positive Thinking

While regular coaching sessions help to even things out, and keep you on track, especially when larger challenges or persistent issues arise, working with mindfulness is a hugely beneficial thing to do. While it does take time to build skill, as with all things, it is essentially free to practice and augments putting your life in a positive light very beautifully.

Mindfulness comes from Zen which is a practice from Japanese Buddhism, however it comes without the religious doctrine of Zen.

Monitoring Your Own Attitude To Aid With Practicing Positive Thinking
Mindfulness Helps Replace Negative Thoughts With Positive Ones

Being mindful means keeping a conscious track of your thoughts.

Within mindful meditation, the practice runs that you merely observe your thoughts, be they positive thoughts or negative thoughts, you just allow them to flow past you without any interaction on your part. A skill which can be very useful in creating emotional detachment, and developing other coping skills that are useful in times of challenge.

Mindfulness has a range of benefits in terms of both physical and mental health, in large part due to the detachment and stress release it helps bring about.

In terms of developing a positive mindset, while those benefits are useful as they add more reasons for gratitude and help you tune in to the goodness of life, the more focused benefit of mindful behavior is that you keep awareness of your thoughts.

Reduce Stress From Negative Events And Negative People

Thus, if you begin slipping into a negative outlook due to negative thoughts, you can create a quick conscious transition to practice positive thinking which brings you back on track. Reframing things, and putting them in a positive light which supports your forward movement and personal development.

One of the points I emphasize with coaching clients is practicing mindfulness, so that when they are outside of a coaching session, they can retain greater control of their thoughts and direction in life. It amplifies the power of positive thinking in a huge way, and allows an expanded level of positive psychology to exist within the mind.

It is good to practice positive affirmations on a regular basis, it is more powerful to practice mindfulness though as doing so keeps the mind more focused, eliminating space for any negative attitude by overwriting negative thought patterns with positive attitudes. While also enabling better stress management.

Loving Kindness Meditation

Loving kindness meditation also known as LKM, is a Buddhist practice which revolves around putting things in a positive light, and pushing positive thoughts out into the world either in a wide general basis or a more focused one.

As a result, it can be very good for building depth and reinforcing a practice of positive thoughts, especially during times of struggle when you’re unable to book in for a coaching session.

LKM brings good effects on both positive attitudes and well being, while amplifying coping skills too.

There are numerous variations for the meditative practice, with the core being as follows:

FocusMantra To Say
SelfMay I be healthy, safe, and strong
Significant others, family, friendsMay you be healthy, safe, and strong
Neighborhood, wider worldMay all beings on planet earth be healthy, safe, and strong
The wider universe and cosmosMay all beings throughout all time and space be healthy, safe, and strong

Each mantra should be said three times, ideally out loud as this gives greater weight to your belief in what you are saying. When you are in more sensitive spaces, or if quiet is a necessity, then you can go through the mantras quietly within your mind.

Ideally, sitting in a meditative position with your eyes closed and your hand on your heart is good, though should you wish to do this standing up overlooking the ocean, then you are also totally welcome too.

It is the positive thoughts which are generated by the loving kindness meditation which are the focus, and the effect they have on the mind and well being of the person saying them.

Visualization Using Positive Imagery

Positive Thinking Is Most Effective When It Is Constant And Ongoing

Imagery can have a profound impact on success, and one of the key techniques I have taught people is the 30 second visualization technique for coaching yourself into success, it’s incredibly simple yet powerful when done properly.

Visualization has been shown as being effective in helping with goal achievement and creation of success many times. With an initial study about shooting hoops in basketball paving the way for other studies and the widespread usage of visualization techniques in many forms of coaching and personal development.

In short, when the medium of visualization using positive imagery is engaged, it deepens positive thinking around the goal or dream being worked on. This results in higher levels of confidence, as well as the reticular activation system which is key to the law of attraction coming into stronger effect to create pathways to achievement, however you measure success.

As confidence increases, it becomes belief.
With the power of positive thinking reinforcing that belief stronger and stronger, creating over time and with practice, an unshakable belief in success. As such helping to immunize against negative emotions having adverse effects on achievement of that goal, and others as the confidence and belief developed help raise up positive attitude overall in a kind of umbrella effect. Positive thinkers have been shown to be more productive, and more successful.

Professional Help For Positive Mindset Change

A Good Coach Empowers And Expands The Power Of Positive Thinking

Having a positive mindset is easy when all your collective values and beliefs align neatly with positive thinking. Most people however have a variety of limiting beliefs and values conflicts which result in certain things acquiring a negative outlook. Thankfully, with the right techniques incredible mindset change is possible that can bring about the alignment needed for those who commit to become a congruent positive thinker.

Good mindset coaching, is the path to rapidly developing a positive mindset which brings about the way of thinking that a person desires in the most timely manner.

Other types of psychological therapy can be beneficial, though they tend to lack the active approach that coaching using techniques including neuro linguistic programming have for bringing about the fundamental change and letting go that’s required.

Reinforcing Your Mindset With The Power Of Positive Thinking

The Power Of Positive Thinking Is Limitless In Terms Of Its Effects

As limiting decisions, beliefs and negative emotions slip away during breakthrough coaching sessions, positive thinking becomes incredibly easy. It become natural, and negative self talk can begin to disappear in the rearview mirror.

This release of the blockages and anchors holding you back enables things like the law of attraction to begin working for you in an empowering way. The law of attraction is always working, though for those with negative aspects running through their mind, results become either unpleasant or mixed at best. When a positive outlook is held, on a consistent basis, then empowering effects that bring the desired success can flow easily.

Developing An Overall Positive Outlook And Unleashing The Benefits Of Positive Thinking
