Every man on this earth wants to philander with a beauty and in order to do so; he does everything which can impress the female gender. Heroism is one such influencing factor which impresses the female gender in such a way that they start to drool on a male.
But can a man prove his heroism only with his machoism? Well, not exactly is my answer. A person becomes a hero when his intelligence goes hand in hand with his physical power to achieve something impossible.
So, how does positive thinking relate itself with heroism and how can it make a man display his heroic skills before a woman is the next thought, which might have popped up in your mind. Well, here is an explanation with an example of my friend’s family.
People come across bad experiences in their lives where some times things can turn worse. The reasons for such experiences are many, but the consequences are the same which are disappointment, disgrace, negative feeling and eventually trauma.
Traumas can sometimes take all the fizz out of life and sometimes they can also generate negative feelings in such a way that people can also get suicidal tendencies. These thoughts if not controlled can make people commit suicide and this is what can be controlled using positive thinking.
A positive mind will always make people get the best feelings in life and these feelings can also help in healing the bad influences experienced by the people. People can come out of the trauma if proper ideas generate in right time. This is where optimism works like a magic and the best explanation of its instance is mentioned below.
Till date many have discussed, opinioned, preached, educate, and question the art of positive thinking and the benefits offered by think positive attitude. But no one had the willingness on what did they get from optimism till date or on what basis they are judging that an optimistic approach has given the best chance to survive. Well, here is what my experience has gathered from thinking positive and that is what I am letting you people know in this article.
Hi, my name is Tom and I am a person who owns an electronic good shop in New York City; a city which is full of colors. My business is the one which my father started in 1989 years ago and we do have a good customer base, who is literally patrons to our business. Any new product which is out in the market, we help you own it. We sell, distribute, integrate different products of many electronic brands and have do have a good domestic and commercial base.
But from the past 10 years, the advent of digitalization has influenced our business to a great extent. With the internet revolution in full progress the footfall to our store has decreased as people are interested in buying the goods online. When the revolution of the web started to take a toll on our business, many of our family friends have indicated that our electronics business in store will be in jeopardy in the next few years.
Do you think that you are an optimistic person? Does this mean that you only entertain optimism in your day to day life? Then how are you managing such things? Many people try to do so and in reality only few people turn successful. This is a fact as people find it difficult to maintain the so called “positive outlook” in life.
It is a fact that everyday a person faces a number of problems and a majority of them demand solutions at that particular instance. In order to achieve it, you need to consider some problems and that starts developing conflicts in people whose goal will be to just think positive.
Like many of our elders say, a think positive attitude is a good habit to practice in our day to day lives. But going with a think positive approach in every sense can not always prove beneficial. Infact this approach can turn negative due to the emergence of over-confidence levels in our thinking. It is a known fact that going with an optimistic approach will always prove beneficial in all our efforts. But when the same approach gets carried away with our thought that everything is within our reach and then this develops over confidence attitude.
Optimism offers great set of benefits to all of its users and soon people are realizing these facts on a global note. But here is a fact which has to be notified that this art of positive thinking cannot be gained on a single day or week. Like how practice makes a man perfect; regular practice of optimism by a person in his/her day to day life also makes things easy for them.
So, how to develop positive attitude in a person’s mind is the next question which has to be sorted out? When the benefits of positive thinking are so many, then one has to look into the procedure of developing this attitude in their respective lives. One way is to read and go through positive thinking content on a regular note, which will develop a positive mind set. The other way is to start teaching kids from their childhood the art of positive thinking and what it fetches them in the end.
How to develop the art of positive thinking in a kids mind right from his childhood becomes the next priority. Here is a way which can help kids get into a mind set of positive attitude.
People who are interested and have a passion in helping people and make their lives more happy and productive come up with seminars which are motivational. Motivational seminars also known as positive thinking seminars
are driving force in life, which bring in smile to another human being and motivate them to achieve whatever goal they have in their respective lives.
These positive thinking seminars help people to spread love, happiness, positivity and spiritual healing into their lives of others. For this reason, in order to spread love and optimism in others mind; many organizations, individuals and community groups sponsored by corporate groups support this cause with enthusiasm.
Positive thinking seminars are tailor made to suit an individual’s personality and depends on the topic or activity one is intending to get motivated. Some of the benefits of positive thinking seminars are as follows-
Bad thoughts are generated in the minds of everyone and this is due to certain hormonal changes which take place in our body. The hormones influence our mind in such a way that bad thoughts are the very first to click in our minds, when things start to go negative. When people start getting bad thoughts, the first and foremost thing they have to do is to start to overcome them.
The best way to overcome such thoughts is to influence those negative thoughts with positive ones. One might get a feeling that what is the meaning of positive thoughts and how it can influence negative feelings?
Let us learn the way of thinking positive with an example. Let us suppose that a person is yet to start a business. Every person has a way to approach his aspect. When a person starts with a feeling that the business is not going to run and getting into it may prove financially fatal, will make people face only negativity in business. So, all their efforts will go in drain the moment they start thinking that their business will incur losses due to stiff competition.
People start complaining when things start to turn negative in their respective lives. When everything is going well in their life, no person on earth likes to think about small negative things happening in their lives. But if something goes wrong in a big way, the mind of a human is tuned in such a way that every miniscule problem is magnified and seen as a big hillock.
This is how we associate our mental noise and chatter with active thinking. When things start to turn negative a kind of attitude begins to develop in our mind, where we start to think that all our efforts are going to yield nothing. This starts to slowly develop a lazy attitude towards everything we have to undergo in our lives.
In a recent study made by researchers at University of Wisconsin, I was shocked to read that 90% of our thoughts are being controlled by our subconscious mind. That means only 10% of thoughts or sometimes even less are programmed by our conscious mind.
Most people from the experience of their life accept the fact that stress and depression will take away body’s ability to fight of diseases. Some of the medical scientists from University of Wisconcin have also come up with a study which proved that a positive state of mind had something to do with immune system in the body. They proved with evidence that the body can develop the ability to cure any disease, just by managing stress. Thus with their study they came to a conclusion that a positive psychology can indeed affect the biology.
From the past few years, studies have proven that depression can increase higher risk for heart disease and other illnesses. At the same time, it was also scientifically proved that certain diseases like Alzheimer in women would be cured as early as usual, if the patient learnt to control stress through optimism.
According to Dr. Richard J Davidson, director of university’s laboratory for Affective Neuroscience and a senior author of the report “The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences” diseases can be cured little bit early than they usually take by a positive state of mind.
I am sure that many people might have heard about the art of positive thinking by now and the plethora of benefits it offers to its followers. Almost 95% of people agree that all those efforts followed by optimism are successful. Only 5% of people think that a ‘think positive’ attitude develops over-confidence and thus brings in some other kind of troubles in life. May be the latter set of people need some more time in getting into the facts about optimism and the way it helps those who practice it in their day to day life.
Now coming to the topic, I am Jim who worked in a big company in US. My job was to sell IT solutions to the people and I had a target to reach on weekly basis. Unless and until I reach the target my work hours for that week were not financially finalized.
Due to stiff competition, it became a herculean task to sell our company products. No doubt our company offered the best in-class solutions for the IT sector. But due to severe competition in the field, it was getting too tough to reach the target.
People in today’s world are surrounded by too many worries which are not only making them mentally stressful, but are also making them weak on a physically note. A healthy mind is always treated as a god’s paradise, as its thoughts to a person are always positive, constructive and are not only helpful to them, but are also useful to others.
A positive mind helps a person to stay active, take a good control on life, future and emotions. To face the challenges offered by our life, one needs to not only control all the things in his life, but also keep a tab of the things happening around him and which are bothering his existence. To make it happen so, go with a planned program and stay in the game of life.
To those, who are embarking on a possibility to go with a positive approach, the move to go with a positive mind set will always prove as beneficial. With the kind of success the positive mind renders in life, no individual in their lives will be willing to dump it.
It is a world accepted fact that motivation, emotions and positive thinking go hand in hand. These three words are inter related and are impossible to get separated. It is an age old fact that certain emotions in our life try to make us sad, frustrated, excited or angry. It’s the way we take these events in our life and motivation and positive thinking follow.
Events are nothing but experiences of us which we gain in our day to day lives. These events demand for our attention and generate emotions, which can either motivate or de-moralize then after. If we start to take these events in a positive way, then the power of optimism can change these negative events in our favor to a large extent.
The fact in our life is that we cannot control the events that are happening in our lives. We have the abiity to interpret the events based on our views, attitudes, opinions, beliefs, perceptions, assumptions, affirmations, past experiences, memories and generalization. All these factors influence our thoughts and can change them into a negative and positive mind set.
Do you know how much bad influence a negative state of mind can offer to a person? Well, it can not only influence your mind in a negative way, but also can devastate life if you’re not handling it in the right way and on right time.
This can be understood well with an example stating how a negative state of mind can make things more difficult than they actually are?
If suppose you are attending an interview and you are approaching the interviewer with a negative thought. Then what you will face in the situation is nervousness which indirectly generates stress and this indirectly starts to make the interview look more difficult than actual. When the very first approach is negative, nothing big and positive can be achieved and as a result people fail in the interview.
It is better I start with an example in order to make you understand in a better way. Take for instance; you happened to come across a glass which is half full. On seeing it, two questions will pop up in your mind- Is the glass half-empty or half full? The way you answer this age old question will let everyone know your opinion on positive thinking and the way you see its reflection on your life.
The answer to your question will not only reflect you attitude on positive thinking bit will also help others to judge you with a tag of a pessimist or optimistic.
Some studies have revealed that the personality traits like optimism and pessimism can show ill effects on human body. It is a known fact that positive thinking, generated from optimism plays a vital role in stress management. If stress is managed in a positive way by a human being, then it can show it can offer a bouquet of benefits to humankind.
Positive thinking has not only the power to make the life of people beautiful, but also has the ability to bring out people suffering from health traumas. For those who think that the benefits offered by an optimistic attitude are only limited to papers and is not possible on a practical note, here is an example of it.
One of my maternal uncles was working as a stock broker in UK and later, on seeing his hard work and dedication was promoted as a director of stock brokers. As you all know, promotion brings in a lot of responsibilities, the same was experienced by my uncle. He was serving his duties by ignoring his health and used to sometime only eat a single meal a day, due to his hectic work schedule. Although, his work was only a 5 day week job, the extra responsibilities on his shoulders made him work the while week.
For the next six months, he started to work like a machine rather than a human and soon his health started to take beating. He started to experience loss of eye sight for few seconds and soon lost his voice in some situations. Within no time, things started to go out of hand and this guy started to experience symptoms of epilepsy and soon his left side of his body was paralyzed.
It is a globally renowned fact that people struggle to think in a positive way on a consistent note, due to the reason that they are not used to such type of mind set. Many adults were raised with an old notion that focusing on negative attitude might actually improve things. For this reason, the mind-set of most of the adults is to go on with a negative attitude on the very first go in their efforts.
This may be a bit amusing to most of us, but when your turn back into your memories, you will probably agree that too much positive thinking for kids was seen as bad thing, as it develops over confidence. As a result, our elders preached us to start thinking negative at the beginning of all our efforts and then go with a feeling of optimism in the later stages.
However, nowadays this mind set is slowly changing, as people have started to recognize the real benefits of positive thinking. As a result, more and more parents and teachers today are encouraging kids from school level to go with a “think positive” attitude in every effort they put in. The only hope by this practice is that kids will tune-up their minds in such a way that only positive thoughts start to generate in their mind and they grow up into human beings who have a strong will power, possible by the art of positive thinking.
In today’s world, they are too many things which can be bothersome to a person and can throw anybody off their center. So, staying attentive in order to accomplish your goals and having a good control on life, on future, emotions has become a challenging task in our day to day life. In order to get back into your life and take over the control of steering wheel, you have to go with a planned program which can make you stay in the game of life.
For those who are embarking on adopting optimism in their life, the move could prove truly beneficial. A positive mind always brings success to a person in his/her respective life. To inculcate the positive mind-set, one needs to practice it on a day to day note. Below are some strategies which can prove helpful in tuning up your mind in such a way that, you tend to put all your efforts with an optimistic approach.
Divert your thoughts- Always make it a point in finding something hilarious, passionate and something which generates interest. By going with such themes, you will get rid of negative feelings, which influence your mind and pull back your confidence levels. When confidence levels decrease, people start to put in self- negative talk and this increases stress. So, divert your mind in such a way that you never keep it idle and make it conducive to negative thoughts. Go play with your dog, watch a movie, listen to songs, chat with a friend and start your life with full of energy.
I am sure that every person in his/her life might have experienced the format of an interview in order to earn their living. It can be the official format where several rounds are presented to the individual and he/she needs to pass in every round in order to secure a job. Or it might be some unofficial format where, a person before recruiting an employee will enquire about background, knowledge, past work experience and how he/she will help in developing the business.
Here is an experience of mine, where I would like to conclude that a positive mind can influence an interviewer in such a way that he/she can be impressed to give you a job.
One might get surprised by seeing the title and might wonder how a positive mind can get rid of obesity. Well, the title has some justice to make in it as there is surely some reality hidden in it. It is scientifically proved that stress levels in a human body can generate hormones which can increase unwanted cellulose in the body.
The cellulose will accumulate in the wrong parts of the body and if neglected, within no time can make a person obese. So, how does stress relate itself to a positive mind and how can we take measures in reducing it or cutting it down on a permanent note is the basic question.
Well, here is some explanation which makes sense in reacting stress with optimism and indirectly links a positive mind to a person’s obesity. In general, when people start to put in some efforts in their daily life, they usual start it with a negative approach. The negative approach makes a person’s mind tune-up in such a way that people tend to get negative thoughts on the efforts they are taking up.
Many might have come across the word ‘Positive Thinking’ by now and some might have already experienced it and come to a positive conclusion. They are people who might have been in a feeling that positive thinking doesn’t do anything wonderful. But yes, if practiced can do some good to people with a selected mind set.
Well, to a certain extent the sentence that positive feeling will only do good to people who are in a positive mind set is true in all aspects. According to William Shakespeare, anything which is started with positive attitude will yield definitely good results. Those who do not wish to put in positive efforts will indeed face negative results.
