If you’ve read the book or watched the film The Secret, you’ll be in the know with the impact of mindset and positive/negative thoughts. But if you aren’t, and you’re wondering what can my mindset do? Let me do a quick rundown for you, or you can take a read throughout this blog post on manifestation basics.
Why do my thoughts have an impact?
The core of The Secret is that what you think, believe and do (your mindset) has an impact on your life. This means that if you think about how unhappy you are all the time, the universe will then give you an unhappy life.
Whereas if you were thinking that your life is amazing and great (even if in current reality it isn’t), then the universe will serve you a happy amazing life.
This is because what we think and believe about our lives, situations, careers, relationships and more, will be what the universe shows us. Still confused?
Let’s say you want a promotion. All you can think about is the promotion. The job afterwards. The feelings you will feel when you are promoted.
The universe will give you that.
How is a positive mindset powerful?
Well if you take the above, if your thoughts and feelings are focused on a negative mindset, what are you going to get? That negative situation.
This means that if you fuel your thoughts and feelings with positivity, your goals, your ideal future, that is what the universe will give you.
I understand that we can’t be positive 100% of the time. Yet, if we switch the way we see, say and think things we’ll be dropping the negative and focusing on the better outcome.
If you’re annoyed that you never get a parking space, your thoughts should be focused on the ease of parking, the abundance of spaces and not on the negative – no space.
Additionally, if you’re wanting your business to do well but all you can think about is that you’ve not reached your income target for this month. Don’t go to the feelings of upset and disappointed. Take the negativity energy and fuel it into positivity, motivation and inspiring energy. Visualise yourself exceeding the goal, how it feels to be in an abundance of income, what you’ll do with it, how you will celebrate but also how you will act moving forward.
5 ways you can embrace a positive mindset
- Script your day – how you feel, what you’re doing, what you’re wearing, your actions
- Gratitude journal – write 3 things every morning you are grateful for
- When you think and speak, focus on the positive, stop using: don’t, won’t, can’t…
- Surround yourself with others who are positive and bring your energy up and not down
Everyone on this planet, in this universe, can tap into this. But people are ignorant to this. And therefore they stick with their negative mindset and that’s all the universe will serve.
Have a fab day, Lily xx
