We do face the problem of negative thinking. It might be due to any incident or event that has occurred and we find ourselves in the midst of negative thinking pattern. Sometimes it is so over-powering that it controls every aspect of our lives.

Personal beliefs, our principles and morals are the basis of our thoughts. Our low mood triggers negative thoughts and forms a chain reaction if we are unable to identify and stop it.

Become aware of your thought processes, simply acknowledging that they exist, helps in managing the negative thoughts. Our thoughts are automatic and fast, they keep on popping up and bombarding us, more so when they are negative.
 Thoughts that are more stressful or depressing should be dealt with first. Think about it, as they are the root cause of your negativity. When our beliefs are not matched with the outside world the distress creeps in. Identify the cause behind stress, despair and depression.
 Negative thoughts lead to negative outcomes. If you are depressed you will be thinking of negative outcomes, like failure in exams, unable to submit assignments on time, inability to concentrate, hopelessness etc. In order to break free of this destructive negative thinking pattern, become aware how they work and on what bases.
 Beliefs and values should be your main focus, as to see from where negative thinking is generating. Try to get control of things and situations before they become over whelming.
 Be optimistic, as it plays a key role in addressing negative thinking. The optimistic person accepts the facts and searches for solutions, while a pessimist attributes the factors that are not even in the situation, thus making the problem bigger than it was in reality.
 Focus on positive emotions and feelings, and replace the old thoughts by it. Think creatively and positively of the solutions, set achievable goals, and move away from negative triggers in the environment. Manage your negative emotions and feelings, this takes time, and your stress or depression will not simply vanish after it. But you will learn how to be a positive thinker.

If you continue to be negative, you will be attracting more negativity in life.
Let go of it and surround yourself with positive thoughts, you will be much happier.

There are so many problems that we come across our daily life, for some we find short term solutions, while for others we think and plan out for longer benefits, for long time duration. Shying away from something that is troublesome, or which provokes anxiety and leads to fear, is not the solution, and have harmful affects one’s life.

Know what bothers you, find out the reasons behind it, look out for the options that are present for you to come out of it, weigh your future in the pendulum if it affects your future life, but most importantly, acknowledge that it is creating havoc in your life in the background. Knowing is just not the end. Acting accordingly and putting things into action are the real movers and shakers.

Don’t be the one who runs away from problems, situations and circumstances, which he/she cannot deal with. Being an ostrich is not the right option at all.

Ignorance is the culprit of many problems, and so is knowing ignorance, where you knowing things, yet you fail to act, where you just sit and watch. Its your life, have a grip, understand that you have something really beautiful in form of LIFE, just don’t ruin it by your ignorance.

Knowing your ignorance about issues or problems, means that you are denying the reality, and are living in state of illusion, where you perceive the reality as some what different. This illusion will land you in a more difficult situation or circumstances. So, why not snap out of it. We all know that to avoid pain, we take actions so that we are not hurt. Same goes with ignorance, whether its deliberate ignorance or simply ignorance, it is your duty to make things right for yourself.

Yes, yes I know that we all try to take actions to save ourselves for all that trouble, or pain. But.

  • Are the actions and measures effective?
  • The course of action is the right one?
  • Is it based on knowledge, experience, and conscious thinking?
  • Are you really committed to it?
  • Do you really want to change things?

There is always room for improvement, improvement in the way we think, the way we function,  the way we put our thoughts into actions, the way we motivate ourselves, the way we stay determined.
