Turn Your Negative Mindset into a Positive Mindset

Negative thinking seems to be easier than positive thinking. Many people seem to believe that positive thinking requires effort while negative thinking is easier because it’s something that seems to “naturally” occur.

Your predominant mental attitude is through what you view the world. Now, if your mental attitude is negative, you’ll be running into many problems because your life and the situations that are part of your life will be mirroring the attitude you carry around with you.

The negative mindset

Individuals with a negative outlook on life constantly repel positive things from them. Not because they want to, but because the human mind does not “judge” whether something is positive or negative, so what it sees, hears and feels is constantly negative. It just accepts this as the norm.

This is really evident when there is something new to try or a new way of doing something. Often times one would rather stay with the status-quo. Things are fine the way they are, so why improve them? This part summed things up for me.

Are things really fine the way they are? Of course not; but that is the negative mindset doing what it does best. It is like having a wall between the negative and positive mindset. As soon as the positive starts climbing the wall, the negative reinforcements arrive.

  • What if I fail?
  • What if it takes too much of my time?
  • What if others think I am crazy for trying this?

These are the first questions that came to mind when deciding whether or not to get into internet marketing.

Society has a way of contributing to the negative mindset. We feel safe when we do not have to change the daily routine. That old phrase “got to keep up with the Jones’”

Guess what I realized?

The Jones’ were in as bad of financial shape as the rest of us. They were not trying something new; they were settling for that negative…status-quo. And that my friend was the moment that the proverbial light went off in my head.

I thought here is a crazy concept: What if you actually try that something new? And what if you do really, really well at it? These were the next questions I asked myself right before I decided to try something new with internet marketing. For the first time in my entire career I let the positive mind break down that negative wall.

The positive or open mindset

Individuals with a positive outlook on life are aware that the mind has energy. It is not a good or bad type of energy, but our thoughts develop whether good or bad things will happen or not happen. If you have a negative mindset, you need to learn how to replace it with a positive one. If you don’t believe you can, you are still being a victim to your own mind. Believe that you will succeed at something new.

Don’t let your mind hold you back, because you’re using it wrong. The human mind has power, the power that you can control everything in your life. Will there be setbacks? Sure. But, your positive mindset prepares you with how to handle those moments. Internet marketing is a challenging place, to say the least. Think of it like this, for every three setbacks there is one really big success. And that success tastes very, very good my friend. Be positive.

What is even more powerful is that you can control that power within you. However negative of an outlook you have, if you actively work on it, you can change it. One surefire way to shift your negativity into positivity is by learning the art of replacement. Every time you think about failing, replace that thought with thinking about how you are succeeding.

Visualize success instead of failure. After all they are only thoughts, so why not make them fun ones that make you feel good instead of bad?

Start being your own best friend. Think about it, if you had a good friend of yours telling you the same things you tell yourself all the time, would the two of you still be friends? Probably not! Start thinking this way, start being kind to you. There really is no point in constantly criticizing yourself, or always telling yourself that you can’t do certain things. Always remember to ask yourself what you would think of your friend if they said the same thing. If you’d dump them, dump that thought!

Let those Jones’ go about their same ways, that’s fine. But, do not stay the same as they are. You deserve better. Why not try something new? After all you might even do very well and then before you know it people will be saying, “got to keep up with the (Insert your last name here)!” Your positive mindset is there, just let it start coming to the surface.

Let go of all that negativity because you really don’t need it!
