Your power to see the world through a positive lens; 3 ways

Did you know our thoughts affect our world? We are bombarded by countless reasons to feel down right miserable almost everyday. Most of the time it’s simple things like being late or getting stuck in traffic, while other times it can be extremely challenging hurdles like health issues, divorce or even death. But regardless of what happens to us, we have the power to see the world through a positive lens; here are 3 ways to gain control of your mind and transform your world.

Work to make every negative into a positive.

“Life is not about what happens to you, it’s about what you do with what happens to you”; I absolutely love this quote; which comes from Chelsea Clinton’s grandmother and truly is incredible advice. I’m not saying this is easy, because it’s not. But you have the mind power to take wherever you might be and turn into something positive. You have the power to step up, be there for someone, say something kind or thoughtful that eases a situation and completely change the moment. As soon as something negative enters your life, immediately think of a positive that could come out from it. The more you practice this, the better you will become at changing your perspective.

Think of something worse that could be happening.

We are often so lost within our own worlds that we have a tendency to over react or even obsess to a certain level that our situation couldn’t be worse, when actually that probably is not true. Almost always, no matter what challenge you might be facing, there is something worse that could be happening. Thinking of those worse case scenarios will ultimately make you feel thankful for where you actually are. Taking the focus off of your negative thoughts and instead being grateful for all the good occurring around you will transform the moment and as time progresses, your life.

Believe it’s happening for a reason.

You’ve probably heard this before and may of thought it was a bunch of mumbo jumbo. But if you train your mind to believe that you are where you are supposed to be right in this moment in time, reading this article, very little can touch you. Rather than saying, why me? Tell yourself, this is where I am and there’s a reason for it. For example, if you are in a hurry and unexpectedly get stuck in a long line at the grocery store, tell yourself there’s a reason I am here right now. Maybe you aren’t supposed to be driving your car? Maybe you’re not supposed to be walking out of the store? This powerful way thinking and training your brain tends to ease most of our challenging times. Try this practice, it works.
