Isn’t it extraordinary that our brain can actually change the world around us? That it doesn’t only control our body, but also controls how we see the world around us and thus, manipulate our surroundings.
The positivity vs. negativity fight is always going on inside us. It is the brain that decides which one will win, the medium being good thoughts.
Relation Between Confidence and Good Thoughts
“Believe in yourself. You are braver than you think, more talented than you know and capable of more than you can imagine.”
― Roy T. Bennett
Our subconscious mind is always active and always recording. It has no filter or bias against anything and stores everything we hear, say or do in the form of impressions.
For example, if a person is told that he is ugly or stupid by his friends or parents, even at a young age, it will affect his every day decisions and choices as an adult, even when the memory of the event is gone.
Thus, the “talk” that we continuously have in our mind with ourselves is extremely important. It affects the positivity vs. negativity fight in various ways. Thus, the mind has to be filled with good thoughts.
Simple statements like “I am good enough” or “I am as smart as anybody else in this room” can bring a lot of changes in our decisions and choices and thus affect the positivity vs. negativity fight going on in our mind.
Here are some things that can boost self-confidence through good thoughts:
- Making our mistakes our stepping stones, not hurdles.
- Knowing our strengths and working on them.
- Treating self like we treat our loved ones.
- Staying in the company of positive people.
The Vibe Game to Win the Positivity vs. Negativity Fight
The philosophical movement of 1901, has a modern way of explaining the law of attraction. It says,
“The energy we put into the universe is the energy that we receive from the universe.”
When we have a positive outlook towards our life and future, we tend to work and behave accordingly. Good work leads to good results.
So, to put it simply, if we have good thoughts in our mind, we will receive positive vibes from the universe, which will positively affect the positivity vs. negativity fight and eventually make our life better.
The Picture of Life
“Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.”
― Roy T. Bennett
I have always thought that it’s important how we see ourselves in the future. I want to be satisfied with what I do and where I stay. I believe that satisfaction is the only way to bliss.
The result of this good thought is that, when I am in a dilemma, I always do what I think would satisfy my soul and till now, it has mostly worked for my benefit.
The picture of life that we create in our mind is the life we want. The life we want is the driving force of our being, our purpose.
So, what could be the role of good thoughts in that? The thoughts that we constantly have in our mind decide what we want and help us get it. It governs the positivity vs. negativity fight.
The positivity vs. negativity fight never actually ends. It goes on throughout our life in our mind. It’s only normal for us to feel low at times. But, it’s okay.
Optimism or having a positive attitude doesn’t mean that we can’t feel low or sad about our situation. It simply means that even in tough times, we don’t lose our good thoughts. It is knowing, even at our lowest, that we can and we will overcome all the hurdles.
