Have a positive self talk
A positive person foresees joy, health and accomplishments, and believes he or she can conquer any impediment and difficulty easily. Positive people are optimists. They see hope and opportunities in their lives. It’s always nice to surround yourself with positive people. They are full of life.
A lot of research is being conducted even today in the world on positivity. Researchers continue to explore the effects of positive thinking and its optimistic effect on health and other facets of life. Positive thinking often starts with self-talk. Self-talk is the endless stream of unspoken thoughts that run through our head. These habitual thoughts can be positive or pessimistic. Some of our self-talk comes from logic and reason. Other self-talk may arise from false impressions and wrong information which we hear from here and there, and that we create because of lack of information. We talk to ourselves all day long and, unfortunately, this self talk is often negative. Often it is filled with guilt about our past or anxiety about our future. This negativity can destroy any seed of hope that we may otherwise have in striving for our dreams.
Our actions are inspired by our thoughts. If we can change the way we think, we can begin to change the actions we take. It is human nature to seek personal growth; whether financially, emotionally, physically or spiritually. Practicing positive self talk can help us set in motion actions that will bring us greater rewards.
Self talk is our internal conversations with our own self through which we form our opinion about others, about situations and facts of life. Self talk is our monologue with our own self. If this self talk is positive, it creates great wonders. A positive self talk lowers depression of any kind. You don’t feel the anguish; it creates better resistance to fight diseases of body. It keeps a strong heart and cardiovascular system. Most important, it gives you great coping skills during any hardships in life.
If the thoughts that run through our head are mostly negative, our outlook on life is more likely pessimistic. If our thoughts are mostly positive, we are likely to be optimistic. And we can start practicing to be optimistic.
Prayers help in creating positivity in our life. It takes just a matter of seconds to utter, but they have the power to influence our life, our behaviour, our confidence. Prayers create positive influence on our hearts, on our perceptions; they have immense strength on us. A moment on our lips is a lifetime on our souls. A simple prayer can change us; can lead us on the path to healing ourselves and our world. So pray. Pray for peace, pray for healing, pray for advances in science, pray for the strength to eradicate poverty and disease, pray for the courage to overcome injustice, pray for resolve, pray for others, pray for yourself. Pray to God with all your heart and soul, and then gather up your might to meet the challenges that lie ahead.
Prayer is not a passive activity. Prayer revises us. It awakens us. Our eyes begin to notice beauty where we never noticed it before. Our hearts begin to feel compassion we never knew we had. Our priorities shift. As we talk to God, we receive the encouragement to live up to the potential inside us. Soon we start to see beyond ourselves into the world that is waiting for our help.
Researchers say that people who are pessimistic find that their self-talk tends toward frequently and unrelenting form of destructive self-talk. Positive affirmations are statements you say to yourself to offset negative thoughts and beliefs. When we make a conscious effort to change our lives, positive affirmations feed us invigorating positive energy. They help us to let go of harmful and hurtful beliefs that feed our psyche.
These positive statements can be repeated several times throughout the day. By taking the time to vocalize the affirmations, the positive changes you wish to manifest, will shift the energy in and around you. It is the vibration of the tone of your own voice as you speak that creates this energy for change to occur. You can also take the time to write your affirmations in the morning and the evening. This is more promising activity. Just remember the more time you are willing to invest in yourself to create positive change the more you will gain from the work you have done. Start writing your affirmations – use an affirmation journal. There are many ways and means by which we can create positivity around us.
Stay happy with a positive self talk.
