Change your ways of thinking and you change your life
Do you want to live a happier and more positive life?
You can start by believing that you can have it.
It all starts with the right mindset and habit of thinking and doing. It is possible!
Inspirational writer and speaker Luminita Saviuc is on a mission. She wants to empower her readers to live an easier, happier life. On her blog, Purpose Fairy, she imparts her daily positive and powerful wisdom. One topic that she is particularly passionate about is giving up on destructive ways of thinking. These are ways of thinking that come natural to a lot of people, but cause more stress and suffering than they’re worth. Here are 10 of the big ones.
1.) The need for control. Always needing to feel in control of everything happening is a sure fire way to double or even triple your stress load. Be willing to give up control of the things happening around you (i.e. situations, events, people, etc.) Just let them be. You’ll be amazed how much better you feel.
2.) Stop the self-defeating inner monologue. Sometimes you can be your own worst enemy. How many people out there in the world are holding themselves back from their dreams because they keep telling themselves they’re not good enough? Just because your brain is saying it, doesn’t mean it’s true. That goes double for negative stuff. Get out there and do it!
3.) You can’t always be right. Even though it’s just oh so satisfying, the truth is it’s literally impossible to be right all the time. Is it worth being right if the result is a huge blow up fight with a friend or loved one? If you’re feeling the urge to fight over who’s right or wrong try asking yourself: “Would I rather be right, or would I rather be kind?”
4.) Who’s to blame, how about yourself? There’s no need to play the blame game with your life. At the end of the day, the only person to blame for your life is you.
5.) Impress others for the right reasons. Trying to impress other people by being someone or something you’re not is it’s own form of punishment. The only way to be happy is to be true and honest to yourself. Be you for the sake of you. You’d be surprised how many people are impressed by that.
