Love Yourself, Think Positive

It’s true when they say you can “speak” things into existence. A negative environment, and negative thoughts birth negative results. If you constantly talk about how sick and tired you are, you’ll physically feel sick and tired. When you constantly complain about how broke you are, your financial situation will never improve. So in retrospect, when you speak using positive connotations, it generally projects a positive outcome. Think about it, have you ever noticed when you go to work smiling and with a good mindset, the day goes smoother and faster? Even if it wasn’t the best day ever, you still go home with that same smile and attitude from that morning. It’s because you told yourself that morning you were going to have a good day no matter what,and you did. In addition, when your boss effectively communicates in a positive manner, you’re bound to be more productive.
Positive thinking clears the way for solutions and good energy to flow. Surrounding yourself with people who support your efforts, dreams, and ambitions is key to a successful, happy life. Stress and tension can take a toll on the body, leaving you feeling heavy or lethargic. Positive reinforcement has the opposite effect, it’s as if a weight has been lifted when someone reassures you everything will be alright. A large part of moving forward and becoming a progressive person, is allowing yourself to be moved and inspired by something bigger than yourself. You have to ask yourself, “Who or what inspires me?” Do your research, go online for the information or read a book for inspiration. On your bad days call, text, or go see that one person who always looks on the bright side of things. They will encourage you to put the bad instance behind you, point out the lessons learned, and offer a solution. That type of advice can take you from down in the dumps to riding high.

You know sticks and stones may break your bones, but words can hurt you too! It’s not that you need to get your ego stroked, but self-esteem is a delicate thing. When you constantly brow beat yourself, or allow others to tear you down with words ,there’s always a possibility of those actions leading to low self-esteem and even depression. Great thinkers and philosophers all agree that theses types of thoughts or behaviors are detriment to not just individuals, but whole cultures and communities. You just can’t give in to discriminatory, oppressive thought processes; it can literally drive you crazy.
Inspirational words aren’t always communicated in long, preachy speeches. Simple expressions like, “I love you”, telling someone they’re smart, telling your partner how beautiful they are inside, or a great person; can make their day better. There are millions of words to choose from, pick the ones to uplift somebody in your life. Tell a stranger to have a great day; you may be surprised how easy it is to have a large impact on somebody’s life. There’s an old saying that sums it up in one short phrase, “May the words you speak be soft and sweet because you may never know what words you have to eat.”

  1. Great post! I especially like the part about thinking about something bigger than yourself when you are low. I will start trying to do this to see the ‘bigger picture’. And it is so true- surrounding yourself with positive, ‘look on the bright side’ peeps is best; this is what I am doing at the moment.
    Ps Thanks for following my blog!
