Everyone has been on a “positive vibes” kick as of late. Most of us are pursuing a more positive life. We want more welcoming and optimistic people and experiences in our lives. ( both hands raised)…
I am going to admit that, yes, I do want all things good in my life, yet I know I have to have balance. I have this very annoying voice that is attached to a big mouth in my head sometimes though… it sounds like “yeah, but” or “I hear you but”…or maybe ” sounds good but”. Am I the only one?
I am going to finally start my blog…yeah but what if no one reads it
I am going to have my own salon business…I hear you but if no one comes, you won’t make any money
I am going to homeschool my son…sounds good but how will you socialize him? what will your family say?
Has anyone else gone through this? Maybe not the same scenarios but you know what I mean. Have you found yourself trying to talk yourself out of your dreams? We can have all of the positive intent we can muster up and the doubt will always creep into the vision. We have to deal with this and still make the most of our positive vibes and smoke out the doubt.
If you allow doubt to win in your head; if you allow that voice to be so loud, there will always be a negative outcome waiting to happen in your life. You feed the negativity, it just gets bigger and spreads like the plague.
On the other hand, If I do what I can to ignore that ugly little voice, I will see positive outcomes more and more. It is a self-fulfilling prophecy….for real!
We have to start replacing our “buts” with “what if” and do it very optimistically.
I am going to start my blog. What if it takes off and people love it?
I am going to have my own salon business…what if you are so booked up you don’t have time for a walk-in?
I am going to homeschool my son… what if he excels and you get to spend more quality time together?
That is so much better!! In the long run, for me, the “what ifs” there are what really matter to me. Approaching life with more positive “what ifs” than doubt will train your brain to return to a positive place more often. You will be more positive when you have decisions to make, problems to solve and opportunities offered to you.
It is a big deal to start out with a positive outlook on life. Being positive gives you a positive baseline expectation. It is the reality that you are choosing to see in your world. How we see people and things that we experience in our world matters tremendously. We attract the things that we perceive so we have to work to set the baseline.
When we expect positive outcomes and rewarding experiences, we usually get exactly what we saw in our mind.
