Developing a Positive Mindset 

 May 15, 2022

If we find ourselves feeling negative, stressed or overwhelmed, it’s time to begin developing a positive mindset. In order to change our results (feeling negative, stressed or overwhelmed), we must be willing to change the thoughts, feelings and actions we are engaging in that create the unwanted results.

Mindset and Attitude

Mindset, like attitude, is a complex and evolving combination of thoughts, feelings and actions. If we think positive thoughts, we feel positive and behave in a positive way. Likewise if we feel negative. The key thing to remember is that to develop our intuition, we must first feel positive. A positive mindset allows intuition to flow.

Decide what you want

So, how to go about shifting from feeling negative to positive? First, you must decide what you want. If your current circumstances are not yielding the results you desire, you must decide what you want. You can decide you want a positive mindset, a new career, relationship or a new house, the first step is to decide what you want so you can step away from what is unwanted.

Decide you will do what you want

Once you know what you want, you must decide you will do what you want. You must be able to say “I know what I want and I know I will do it”. Focus only on what is going well. What skills, talents, abilities do you have that will help create what you want? What actions can you take to move forward right away? Focus only on these and ignore everything else.

Develop your positive thoughts and see what circumstances, people and ideas start to flow into the space that was previously occupied by your negative thoughts. Focus only on the great things that are going your way, even if you don’t know why they’re happening and even if you don’t really know what your doing or how to achieve what you want.

Affirmations and mantras to support you

Create a list of positive affirmations or mantras that you can continue to repeat throughout your day to continuously reinforce the positive mindset:

Everything is unfolding perfectly for me!

I don’t know what I’m doing differently, but amazing things are happening for me!

Something has really shifted for me now!

Everything is magically working out for me!

As you notice more and more positive emotions, feelings and actions, add these to the growing list of what is going well. Celebrate every tiny aspect of your new positive mindset so you continue to open space for new ideas and insights to help move you toward what you want.

Try developing a positive mindset every time

Try this approach to developing a positive mindset when you feel stuck in a rut, when you need fresh ideas, when you feel like you’ve tried everything but something is not working. This approach will help you open to a new perspective. Having a positive mindset allows new ideas, circumstances and people to flow into your life who can help you with the next step towards what you want.
