If you want a positive outcome or if you are looking for an improvement in your life then it is a must that you become more optimistic. Optimism can become easier for you and I’ll try to help you to show how that is possible.
In this website the focus is self esteem and if you read some of the many pages available here you will quickly discover why it is so important to you and how to raise it. It all revolves around how you think about your world and how you see yourself fitting in it. Optimism brings about an increase in self confidence and this will enable you to be stronger and more successful. So how can you be more optimistic?
I don’t believe that just by correcting all your thoughts or words form negative to positive statements will work but you need to actually change your thinking and consider the world and the situations you face in a slightly different way, in a better way. Here is one great way to change your thinking and introduce optimism into your life:
What if …..?
Often we worry about what might go wrong but with a small change in your thinking pattern why not ask what if and follow with something positive. Instead what if everything goes wrong, say what if I succeed, what if I get the job I’m looking for, what if he thanks me for my hard work, what if I get the opportunity to do that. The possibilities are endless. This is real optimism.
Optimism should be realistic or it is just a false effort and nothing will result. Just consider that whatever you believe can happen will. Is there any chance you can succeed? No matter what decision or situation you face there is always a small chance at least that you can surprise yourself and others and against the odds manage to be successful. Why not consider what would happen if you succeeded?
At least is also another phrase you can turn to and use to help you find something optimistic to say. Instead of focusing on my troubles and complaints about my job I can start saying – at least I enjoy teaching, at least I have friends, at least we can laugh, at least I like the area where I work and so on. It is much better than beating yourself up with negative self talk.
Creating optimism is not always easy but following just a few steps as outlined above can be a start in ending your negative thoughts, do it today and let optimism slowly become a part of your life you will happy that you did.
