Everyone experiences plenty of unpleasant, upsetting, and discouraging thoughts.
How do NEGATIVE thinkers deal with unpleasant thoughts?
Negative thinkers take them to heart, so to speak. They dwell on the unpleasant thoughts, thereby giving them priority in their memory. They don’t take their mind away from them. At night those unpleasant thoughts are the last thing on their mind.
Negative, unpleasant thoughts deposited in your memory can affect your mind. Negative thoughts produce needless worry, frustration, and feelings of inferiority.
Thinking in a negative way prevents you from leading a successful, rewarding, and meaningful life. Negative thoughts drain your energy levels, leaving you feeling worn-out. If you pay attention to negative thoughts they will just get bigger and stronger, causing minor issues to seem far worse than what they really are.
No one escapes life’s ups and downs.
How do POSITIVE thinkers deal with unpleasant thoughts?
Confident, positive thinkers, on the other hand, “don’t give it another thought.” Positive thinkers specialize in putting positive thoughts into their memory bank.
Positive thinkers have their fair share of bad days and setbacks. The big difference is that they are more confident and show a positive attitude when faced with difficult situations.
Positive thinkers are focused on solutions to a challenging condition and getting results. They will invest their time in coming up with solutions rather than waste valuable time dwelling on their problems.
They are also action orientated and they will come up with the best method to overcome the condition and push forward. Positive thinkers take control of the problems and issues in their lives and by taking control they have control over the outcome.
Deposit good thoughts in your memory bank. This boosts confidence. It gives you that “I-feel-good” feeling. It also helps keep your body functioning healthily.
HOW TO STAY BEING OPTIMISTIC?
It is a good practice before going to sleep, think pleasant thoughts and deposit them in your memory bank. Count your blessings. Reflect on the positive things you have to be thankful for; your spouse, your children, your friends, your health. Reflect on the positive things you experienced today. Reflect on your triumphs and accomplishments. Think about the reasons why you are glad to be alive.
Whenever you think of a situation of any kind, focus on the good part of that experience; forget the bad. Bury it. If you find yourself thinking about the negative side, turn your mind off completely. Your mind wants you to forget the unpleasant. If you cooperate, unpleasant memories will gradually get smaller and fade away.
Finally, it really is easy to forget unpleasant thoughts if you simply refuse to pay any attention to them. Withdraw only positive thoughts from your memory bank.
