The lens through which you look at the world and qualify your experiences guides the quality of your life.
Unconsciously and sometimes unknowingly we paint our world through predominantly positive or predominantly negative lenses. That is you can see a situation like almost getting into a car crash as the end of the world and that the universe is out to get you or you can look at it as an opportunity to express gratitude for making it out okay.
Developing a positive mindset is hard work but reaps plenty of benefits. Ranging from peace of mind, joy, mental strength and so much more.
If you would like to tackle the task of developing a positive mindset some things you can do are:
- Change what you feed your mind – You have to become intentional about what you consume. Mindless tv and endless hours of binging Netflix is okay for a little while. But if you want to build a positive mindset you should intentionally watch motivational videos, listen to guided meditations, read and listen to good books.
- Change what you see in the mirror – Mindset is not just mental but physical. Dress in a way that makes you feel like a boss.
- Change what you say about yourself – You have the power to tell yourself that your curves and edges are beautiful. Some of my favorite affirmations are: I am beautiful, I am intelligent, i am mentally strong.
“Your mind is a powerful thing. When you filter it with positive thoughts, your life will start to change.” – Buddha
