It is sad to say, but most of us are pessimists. Is it our fault? Honestly, yes, yes it is. As a society, we have been breeding our children to "keep their feet on the ground". We don't want them to get their hopes up about things because we do not want them to be disappointed. We are wired to be hesitant, "realistic", and to settle for comfortable. Instead of teaching us how to have a better life, society teaches us to get by. How do they expect any of us to be happy?
While society has been molding us into our pessimistic selves, we do have a choice. We can change the wiring! There are three things that you need to work on. As you perfect these three things, you will find amazing changes starting to occur.
Step 1 - Thoughts
If you want to improve yourself, understand that everything begins with your thoughts. Are your thoughts positive and energizing, or are they negative and draining. For most of us, the answer is negative and draining. The first thing that you need to work on is getting your thoughts on the right track. I know, easier said than done. Work on it though. Get rid of those negative thoughts. Do feel bad about yourself? IS there something about you that you really just don't like? Most people would obsess over that thing. Stop! Focus on the positive. You, yes you, no matter who you are, have something positive to offer the world. For that reason, even if it is that reason alone, you deserve to feel good about yourself. The nest time that you find yourself thinking negatively, make an effort to turn those thoughts around. This is the first step to improving yourself.
Step 2 - Words
Once you get your thoughts straight, you will find that those thoughts will influence the words that you speak. This is the next step if you want to improve yourself. Speaking negatively can accomplish very little. People have an obsession with gossiping about others. We not only put others down, but we put ourselves down. Positive thoughts lead to positive words, which lead to a better you.
Step 3 - Actions
This is when it all comes together. When you improve yourself, your thoughts lead to your words, which translate into actions. These 3 phases should all be positive and energizing. Many of us feel that if we are busy, then we are accomplishing something. This is not the case. Look at the actions that you take throughout a day. How many of them will have a positive influence on your life? How many of them will help you improve yourself?
When your thoughts, words and actions become positive and energetic, you will improve yourself in so many ways. Your health, your relationships, and even your finances can benefit from your new outlook on life. Personally, I specialize in the financial aspect of this. I help people improve themselves, which in tern improves their business. Learn what I have to share at Globalsuccesswithjoe.com, where business and personal development meet!
