Be positive and the sun will shine... well sort of. Of course wishing the weather to be good doesn’t mean we can expect blue skies but positive thinking can mean we can turn things around and get the most out of life.
You know those happy go lucky folk, maybe they are lucky because they are happy.
If you think positive, the people around you think positive too. We all react to others body language and if you are thinking negatively then your body language will say the same. The tone of our voice, our facial expressions and body language all portray your thoughts.
If you go into a job interview thinking you will get it, the chances are that your interviewer will see your positive attitude through your actions and tone of your voice. This confidence and positive thinking will increase your chances of getting that job. If you were to go into the interview thinking you won’t get the job, it will show in your movements and tone of voice. This will give off a negative attitude, which can decrease your chances of that job offer.
Your mind cannot think of both negative and positive thoughts in one go, by dismissing negative thoughts and replacing them with positive thoughts you can control your thought pattern and spin your attitude to the better and happier way of thinking.
Positive thinking can reduce stress, help your wellbeing and improve self esteem. So next time you see the glass half empty, stop and look again; I think you will find it is half full.
