Simple positive thinking tips to do at work

Positive thinking techniques

If you’d like to tackle problems with self-esteem, put positive thinking to work for you.  Follow these simple tips to create a more positive attitude:

  • Take care of yourself.  As you begin to follow a healthier lifestyle, you are giving yourself the message that you are worth taking care of.  Even if you’re not sure yet if you believe that, you’ll soon start to feel better physically, and that will help you feel more positive.  Exercise several times a week, eat healthy foods, and learn some relaxation techniques for when you need to take a stress break.

  • Surround yourself with positive energy.  Make sure that the people around you are optimistic in their outlooks.  Nothing is more contagious than negativity, so try to banish it in your environment.

  • Spot-check your attitude.  Several times a day, take a moment to analyze what you’re thinking.  Are you being positive or negative?  If the latter, try to reframe the situation in more positive terms.  By becoming more self-conscious about your negativity, you’ll learn to curb it.

  • Use positive self-talk.  Encourage yourself by giving yourself positive affirmations; e.g., “I am a self-confident individual who has much to offer.”  Avoid the use of “could-a” and “should-a” messages to yourself. Change what you need to change, and try not to beat yourself up in the process.  Allow a little humor into your talk.  Laughing at yourself and at life does reduce stress.

Now that you have a better idea about the true power of positive thinking, begin to apply it daily in your life.  You will soon notice that the scared little child in you has grown up into a self-confident adult.

Make your road clear

Many people fail to realize that big success is the result of little successes achieved, often over a very long period of time.

Truly successful people are long term thinkers. They know that they must build upon each achievement and constantly learn new and better ways of doing things.

A regular review of your progress is an essential part of goal setting. A goal is little more than a wish unless it has a timetable for completion.

Make sure your plan for your life includes short, medium and long-term goals. Revise your goals as circumstances dictate, check them off when they are completed, and set new bigger goals for your self as you grow.

Take time to reflect often to make sure you are on the right course for you.

Stress is simply a response which you create in the interpretation of an event.

Two people might find that a given event results in quite different ways. For example, a speech in front of a large gathering might strike fear into the heart of an inexperienced speaker while a strong orator views it as a wonderful opportunity to share his thoughts.

Understanding that the perceived negative effects of an event or task may be mentally manipulated and conditioned towards the positive, will allow you to be a peak performer in all instances.

Live Fully Now

Too many human beings postpone living.

We say that we will live our best lives when we have more time or when we finish the pressing projects that are consuming us.

We tell those around us that we will be more loving and passionate when things slow down.

We promise ourselves that we will get into world-class physical condition and eat healthier food when we have a little bit more time.

Yet, deep within us, each one of us knows that there will never be a better time to live our biggest life than now.

And if not today, then when?
