Probably one of the most clichéd answer given by a successful person in an interview is, ‘Positive thinking is what made me what I am,’ and you sit on your couch judging them for being such snobbish and diplomatic people. This happens, right?
But what if I told you they are actually telling the truth about the relationship of success and positive thinking? It’s if fact true that keeping your mind in the direction of light and positivity can be a huge factor in your endeavour for success. What if I told you that doing small things that make you smile may actually be the decisive factors in your productivity quotient of the day? All this sounds too good to be actually true, I know. But I’m here to tell you that it actually makes sense and by the time you finish reading this write-up, you will agree with me, that is a guarantee.
What is success? It’s a relative term; it’s not Lamborghini cars and a penthouse in New York. This term means separate things for different people that come from different places, backgrounds, communities, and interests. But if there was one common element in all the definitions of success, it is – it needs one to be better than they were yesterday – agreed?
I was onto a research on the internet before I had to write my assignment for my class the next day. This was when I found some context for compiling this list of some useful techniques and/or tips that might be useful to you if you’re looking for training your mind to develop a positive mind set.
Surround yourself with positive minded people and you’ll find that it is much easier to cope with difficult situations. I’ll give you an example – a few days earlier, I was depressed about something that happened that day. I was sitting in my room spreading gloom. My roommate, all of a sudden, asks me, ‘dude will you write my paper for me while I’m busy making you laugh?’ And it made me laugh – that’s the kind of person you should be around.
Positive thinking may not be the only thing that is required to be successful, but it is definitely the most important one.
