Practicing A Positive Lifestyle
Let's face it most of us would love to live a life where everything just seems to go at a nice fluid pace with little or no interruptions or few setbacks. This would be great - and it can be done if you start practicing a positive lifestyle.
So what exactly is a positive lifestyle? This involves looking at things a little differently. It requires that you see and understand the positive aspects of people and situations - instead of just focusing on the negative aspects.
Too often we get caught up with the negative opinions, attitudes, actions and thoughts of those around us - and in the end we create a negative lifestyle that leaves us unhappy, depressed, hopeless and angry.
So in order to avoid falling into this trap or in order to move from a negative lifestyle to a positive lifestyle - we need to begin changing the way we see things and change the way we interact with each other
Those of you who are now working with the Creating Power system are already in the process of building a positive lifestyle. The Creating Power system shows you how to eliminate the negative thought patterns and beliefs that create a negative or limiting reality. With Creating Power you start building a positive lifestyle from day one.
The First Step
The first thing you can do is to change your negative responses when dealing with people. For example: if someone asks you; "How are you." Instead of responding by saying: "Not bad." Why not say: "I'm doing great." Think about it for a second. Your first response was Not Bad, or I'm okay, or so-so - or hanging in there, or trying to get through the day - these are all negative statements that create more negative energy and perpetuate the negative lifestyle. Switching to the positive - to what you want - leads to creating more positive energy and a more positive attitude. If you actually start saying that you're doing great - in time you'll begin to believe it and your reality will reflect that - things will actually improve.
So when you're talking to other people - change your negative statements to positive comments. If you're in a conversation where everybody is just being negative - try saying something positive and see what happens. Watch the response - you'll be surprised at some of the things that happen. Some people may think your crazy - but a lot of people will actually start to see things differently. You'll actually get them to stop being so negative - and without knowing it - those very same people will begin looking at things in a more positive way. This may not happen the first time, and it may not happen all the time - but the more you do it - the more often you'll get them to focus on the positive events.
This is one of the things I encourage in the Creating Power system - focusing on the positive but also communicating. Creating Power shows you how to train your mind to focus on the positive so that you always send the right messages to your subconscious mind and create the life you want. With Creating Power - you'll learn how to create a positive lifestyle so that you enjoy living a life where everything works and you enjoy success, happiness and much more.
Focus on the Good Qualities
Often people will do things to make you uneasy, upset you, anger you - or just simply get under your skin. When this happens - it's okay to initially react - but after you've calmed down - look at the positive qualities in that person. Too often we focus solely on a person's negative qualities - and forget the good things. I've actually had people tell me that they can't think of anything nice about their co-workers, bosses, mother in-law, etc. This is a little hard to believe and what it shows is that the person is so caught up in living a negative lifestyle they can't see anything positive in anyone. It's like living in darkness for so long that now they forgot what impact light could have.
By looking at the positive you get your mind to shift it's attention - it now begins to see things differently and thus sends a different message and different energy to your subconscious. This new positive energy and positive message is picked up by your subconscious, your spirit and your higher power - they all bring positive situations to you. It's that old saying: "what goes around comes around." You focus on the positive in other people and other people will see the positive qualities in you. You focus on the good things in other people, and other people will see the good things in you and you'll attract positive situations in your life.
I'm not asking you to be a doormat and I'm not asking you to simply look at the positive qualities when someone is being unkind to you. Instead, I'm suggesting that you take a look at the positive qualities in addition to everything else. Don't neglect the positive qualities that a person has.
Here's an example: Let's say you're taking your son or daughter to a basketball game. You're in the line and the guy behind you, who is also with his child, starts pushing. You ask him to back off and he gets angry - perhaps starts yelling and screaming - all of this is taking place in front of your child and his child. Finally things calm down - you go to your seat and he goes to his. Perhaps you're still angry and silently cursing him as you sit in your chair. But can you see anything positive in that person? Most people would say no. But at least he was trying to spend some time with his kid. At least he took time out of his schedule, just like you did and took his kid to a game - just like you did. You don't know anything else about the person - but you just found some positive qualities.
When you do this you also release the anger and unhappiness - because you get your mind to focus on something positive instead of something negative - thus creating more positive energy. Try doing this with people you know and don't know.
Creating positive energy is crucial to your success and happiness. Let's face it - you certainly don't want negative energy or a negative lifestyle. With Creating Power you'll learn how to do this and much more. The techniques, exercises and methods are simple and easy to use. Creating Power shows you how to focus on the positive and get the most out of life.
Encourage the Positive
Another thing you can do is to be encouraging and positive - not just when you're talking to people - but go the extra distance to help someone out when you can. Offer encouragement when people have questions or concerns. Instead of shooting somebody down, or sharply criticizing them - take the high road - and see how much more of an impact a few words of encouragement will help. Listen to what people say and try to offer a positive suggestion to help in their situation.
When you do this you get your mind to go in a positive direction - which in turn will attract more positive situations - and you also back it up with action. It doesn't hurt to help people when they need a hand, a few words of encouragement will go a lot further than some harsh criticism.
Begin to see the positive aspects in other people by first focusing on your positive qualities. Creating Power shows you how to do both and it shows you how to send the right messages to your subconscious mind so that you create the life you want. Start working with Creating Power today and begin creating a positive lifestyle so that you enjoy the life you want.
Try Smiling
Finally, try smiling. It's actually a lot easier than frowning. It's true. Researcher and scientists have found that you actually use fewer muscles to smile than you do when you frown. Try smiling more and you'll actually start to feel better. Take some time to laugh at yourself and at things you find funny. Be a kid every once in a while - don't take things too seriously - after all having fun frees the soul and eases the mind. Do things you enjoy and you'll start creating a positive lifestyle.
