Are You Ready…?

Ready for what, I hear you say…! For feeding your mind with what will SHAPE you and MAKE you, instead of what could break you.

Being positive in life isn’t easy but it is very simple. It can be very empowering, and you can find so much self-belief, confidence and happiness by doing so.

So how do you become positive?

Read on to find out…

Positivity is the practice of being optimistic. Optimism is the hopefulness and confidence about the future or the success of something.

The best way to start your journey to being positive is to create 3 sentences you can say to yourself every day. These are what we call ‘mantra’s’ or ‘affirmations’

These are incredible. They can be about anything at all. Sports, family, school, yourself, friends, a life situation, literally anything you wish.

So, for example, I say the following every day;

I am so grateful for the roof over my head, my loving family and friends and the amazing life we live.

You could use this too.

Shifting frustrations

When I feel life isn’t quite going the way I hoped it would to go, I say to myself 3 great things that have happened in the last 24 hours or 3 great things about myself. This lifts my mind away from the feeling of lack (which is the way I hoped for) and shifts my mindset to the good things I already have in my life – almost like regenerating a happy, grateful feeling.

Sometimes in life, it is difficult to realise and remember how amazing it is that every day we wake up we get the opportunity to experience another day in the beautiful country we live in, a day with our family and friends, another day with unknown opportunities that may come our way.

When life isn’t going how we hoped it would go, remember this:

“Everything that happens to us is what’s meant to be. What we do, say or think won’t change it, because we make the decisions we are meant to make.”

By accepting this we take out the frustrations of life and become incredibly accepting of the way things are.

We open our minds to seeing the beauty which we already have.

Materialistic things are not what helps us find our happiness, but the ability to accept and create our feelings within of happiness, joy, love, self-belief and confidence. And we do this through our mantra’s and affirmations daily.

What does my family do?

My family and I send a positive affirmation of gratitude and thanks each day. When someone feels sad or down, these affirmations and gratitude’s lift each other up. We then remind each other of the great things in life that cost us nothing. They calm us down into a happy space which helps us help others to see life with thanks not need.

So if there’s one thing I urge you to remember that is to set affirmations of thanks, share your thanks and gratitude with each other, say something great about someone, help at least one person each day and Bring The Joy into yours and someone else’s life each day.

With love and Positivity
