Are you constantly battling depression, pessimism or negativity? Did you know that these emotions can cause you to fall sick easily? Well, you need to change your mindset to be one full of positivity, joy and optimism. In this article I will be sharing with you two tips to help you with just that. At the end of this article, I believe you will see things from in different light.

Recording The Good Things That Happened

For a start, it would be a good idea to record the good things that happen to you on a daily basis. Get yourself a diary or journal and write down the good things to happen to you. I believe you do experience good things in your life. You may call yourself miserable but the fact that you have breathe to complain is a good thing in itself. Do not belittle the little things in life. Are you able to walk? Do you have food to eat and water to drink? Do you have a roof above your head? Did you wake up this morning to a brand new day? Granted, your answers to all these questions may not be yes, but I believe that you had at least one “yes” to these questions. Be thankful for the little things you have. That is one way you can change your mindset.

Speak Positively

There is power in your words. King Solomon, the wisest king who ever lived, said “death and life lie in the power of the tongue”. The words that come out from your mouth will come to pass. Learn to speak positively even when you are in the midst of hardship. It takes courage to say something positive in a circumstance such as a tragedy or a moment of failure. Just remember that these things that happen are merely, and literally, happenings. They do not determine who you are as a person. Like Zig Ziglar said, “failure is an event, not a person”. Use that failure as a lesson you can learn from, but keep your head held high, because that is not the end of the story. You have what it takes to create your happy ending. In my opinion, it is easier for you to reach that happy ending when you change your mindset.

By now, I hope you have a better understanding of how you can change your mindset, so say hello to a positive new you.
