We are strong believers that a positive mindset is the key to happiness, whatever that word means to you. You might not realize it but the way you think impact any decisions you make in your life. Our fears, hopes, beliefs, any emotions we feel, positive or negative, change drastically our perspectives.
It is in the human nature to look for happiness, but we often don’t know how to reach it. This results in feeling lost or stuck in our own life. But what if we were telling you that any of us can live a successful and fulfilled life?
Would you believe us if we were to tell you that you are the only one who can decide to be happy?
Get it right from the get-go
We are not saying it is an easy process, no one have their sh*t together and we are all faking it until we make it. But all you need are the good tools and practice.
Have goals, big or small.
Having concrete goals will give you the motivation to move forward in your future, and make you feel excited about taking decisions while pushing you to adapt your routine.
Once you've lined up these ideas, you need to learn to identify non-toxic from toxic goals. How? Ask yourself "why" you are aiming for that specific goal. Is it for yourself? Others? Is it too intense? Unachievable ? Is it compromising your health? Always remember to be your own measurement system instead of comparing yourself to others.
Implement positive thinking and statements:
Every time you catch yourself having a negative thought, acknowledge them by asking yourself WHY you are having negative thoughts and WHERE do they come from. Then, as trivial as it may sound, smile and twist it positively instead of making yourself feel worse:
"I am stupid… NO: I am smart!”
“I hate my acne… NO: I am beautiful!"
“I cannot do it… NO: I have been through worse than that, I am strong!"
The more you start making these statements, the more you will believe and see them. This is the power of manifestation, if you repeatedly keep saying negative things then those things are what will come to light. It works the same way for positive statements.
Make it a habit while looking at yourself in the mirror (because it feels good to look at yourself right in the eyes):
I radiate beauty. I radiate power. I radiate prosperity. I radiate love. I radiate light.
I am strong. I am confident. I will be successful.
I am beautiful. I have a great body. I love the way I look.
Learn to not be afraid to fail:
We all failed when we were kids, from the first step we took to all of the times we fell, it was part of our learning process. So failing as an adult is just as normal.
Failure means you keep learning, experimenting, progressing towards the life you are building, so instead of feeling ashamed we have to embrace it!
Grow, unlock other possibilities and achieve more than you could think!
Feel inspired not jealous:
Step away from negativity and jealousy by opening your mind, feeding your soul and surrounding yourself with like-minded people and people who are a few steps ahead of you too.
Keep learning, think about your goals, listen to yourself, learn to eliminate what doesn't work for you.
Just remember, you cannot compare yourself to others since you do not have the same life and aspirations.
There will always be parts of yourself that you are working on and you often think that "it will be better over there, and I will only be happy when…” but guess what?! Once you get over there, chances are you will face similar feelings of obstacles. Unless you break the cycle with everything we just told you.
