If you want to move ahead in life the first thing that you need to do is replace the negative aspects with more positive one. When you do this you will find that your morale and your productivity increases. By focusing on the positives you will have more success and gain peak performance.
Quite often we are not aware of the amount of negative influences in our lives. We are constantly bombarded with negative messages from the media, people around us and of course ourselves.
The first step in replacing the negatives with the positive is to start becoming aware of the negative messages we receive. Then you can work on ways to replace them with positives. You decide what you will focus on and you need to ensure that your focus is always on the positive. What are the good things in your life?
You should start to cut down on the amount of news you watch and listen to. There are so many people that start their day by listening to the news. Most of the items discussed on the news is negative including fires, floods and so on. By the time you have finished your morning coffee you will have taken on board enough negative influences to last you an entire week. All this bad news won’t make you want to smile now will it? A lot of people also end their day by watching the news before they go to bed. Again this is adding another large dose of negative information. The mood that you are in before you go to sleep carries over to the follow morning so the more negativity you absorb the worst your mood will be in the morning. Try not watching the news before you go to bed and reading or listening to something positive instead and see the affect it has.
You can try replacing the news with motivational tapes, uplifting much and websites such as happynews.com. Reading empowering books can also help. Look for success stories and biographies of successful people if you are looking to make a change in your business life. Just by reading their successes you will start to feel more empowered.
Another way to remove negativity from your life is to limit the amount of TV you watch. Even if you are not engrossed in the program you are watching your subconscious mind will be taking in the messages.
If there are a lot of negative people in your life try and limit your exposure to them. Most people don’t even realize how draining these people can be. They pull down your energy levels and spirit in so many ways. Find positive people to interact with so that you feel good and use these people to replace the negative people in your life. If your partner is generally negative your positivity will rub off on them so stay upbeat when you are around them and try not to let them bring you down.
The most damaging source of negativity that we all face comes from ourselves. Most of us generate negative self talk all day long. The mind accepts these thoughts are truths so you need to watch what you are saying about yourself. You need to start focusing on the positive aspects of you. What are your unique strengths? What have you accomplished so far in life?
You can use visualization and affirmations to help build up positive images about yourself. Give yourself credit for all the things you do right each day and try not to focus on any of the negative things that may have occurred. End your day by taking the time to list five positive things that happened. You will be surprised at how this affects your sleep and your mood the next morning.
By replacing the negatives in your life with positives you will not only make yourself feel better but you will make your life better too. You will feel better both mentally and physically and you will start to accomplish those things you have wanted to do. Take action now and start to move ahead in your life positively.
