It is not easy to stay positive when you lose your job or lose money. At these times it is so easy to fall prey to negative thinking and imagine disasters. However, it is at this time that positive thinking becomes so important.
If you let your thoughts become negative and let despair pervade your mind, will this help you in any way? Absolutely not!
When facing problems, obstacles or loss, you may feel that you can do nothing about them. If you lose your job, for example, you might say that you are too old or too inexperienced to get a new job, and that new jobs are sparse and hard to get. All this might be true, but people still find jobs, and also become successful, even in difficult times.
Don’t limit yourself by thinking limiting thoughts or holding limiting beliefs. Thoughts can act like chains, tying you to the ground, but they can also be like wings, taking you far and above. It is your choice what thoughts to think. Always remember that a better life starts in the mind.
You might not be always able to change you circumstances and the world around you, but you can change your inner, mental world.
- You can choose your thoughts and refuse to feel pity for yourself.
- You can refuse to see in your mind pictures of problems and disasters.
- You can fill your mind with positive thoughts and mental images.
All change starts in the mind, and you therefore, need to change the way you think in order to improve your life.
If you keep thinking about your current situation, of having no job and no money, you will get more despondent and unhappy, and see more problems, because you focus on them, and do nothing to get out of this situation.
No matter how difficult it might be, stop your negative thinking. It will not cost you money to do so. As said earlier, a better life starts in the mind.
In your imagination, see yourself having a good job and earning money. Don’t say this is impossible. Believe what you are visualizing, enjoy the visualization, like you enjoy a good movie, and refuse the strong temptation to despair and say this is all nonsense.
When you focus on success, you start to see opportunities. You intuition becomes sharper, and people become more helpful.
When you change your inner world of thoughts, your external world changes too, because your external world is the mirror of your inner world.
Start today to visualize and achieve your dreams. Start today to change your thought to positive thoughts.
You can change your life, and it all starts in your mind.
