“The mind is everything. What you think you become.” – Buddha
Yes! It’s actually true. You become what you think of. Imagine it in this way: you picture yourself unconsciously in your thoughts going on a holiday and suddenly you have this urge of going to a certain place. For such thoughts to occur your surroundings play a major role. Like, what kind of people surround you, what kind of lifestyle you see and wish to have, In what manner you communicate, etc. Have you ever experienced that you desperately wanted something and suddenly you get it in form of gift or just by co-incidence. This is nothing but your thoughts working in favor of you to get what you want.
I have seen many lives transform because of the power of their thoughts. It’s an art which, through dedication can be learnt. You can be unstoppable, achieve great success and attract everything you want if you learn the art of keeping a positive mindset in your daily life. For obvious reasons, it is easily said than done.
A few alterations in the way you think and this might work for you too.

Surround Yourself With Positive People:
Positive people are lively and fun to be around. These kinds of people make everything easier. You feel good around them and positivity starts flowing in you. We are not talking here to disconnect with those who are not positive. But, to change your view in the way you live life, you have to change the way you generate thoughts and how positively you respond to it. A positive mind is a healthy mind and it talks and acts in a healthy way.
Avoid Thinking Negative Thoughts:
If you ever tried meditation you will know that shutting down your thoughts is difficult. So, an easier way is to use an alternative way of diverting your thoughts. First step is being aware of your thoughts. A human brain has 60,000 to 80,000 thoughts in a day. What’s in our capacity is to track consciously generated thoughts and the moment you get a negative thought, change the thought. You can change your thoughts towards something that makes you happy. Like music, friends, good memories. This technique will gradually eliminate the negativity.
Feel The Divinity Within You:
Rise and Shine! This age old saying truly makes a difference. Waking up early in the morning before the chaos of your routine kick starts helps you to find the hidden inner peace. All the power required to live one more successful day is already within you. It just needs to be explored. Love yourself and the unique person that you are.
Listen To Yourself:
Do you listen to yourself when you talk? Do you think that makes a difference in the image that you have? Is that exactly what you want your image to be?
When you communicate with people around you, it makes an image in people’s mind. This image is your social presence. One thing that you can and should do is to use a positive language. When we start discussing people, we are generating similar circumstances for us. We generate the same negativity that we are talking about. Positive people discuss ideas, appreciate people, and pay gratitude. Listen to yourself when you talk and make sure each and every word leaving your mouth is doing something good to you.
Successful people practice positive mindset daily. They know this art and they focus on generating more and more of it with immense power. Remember Worries influence positive thinking and faith develops more of it. Whatever you do always have faith in your work as well as yourself.
