How to Train Your Brain to Think Positive Thoughts All the Time

Thoughts become things, as the saying goes, and positive thinking leads to positive outcomes in life. When you can train your brain to think positive thoughts all the time, your mind becomes much less susceptible to negativity and doubt, allowing you to reach your goals without succumbing to self-defeatist impulses that throw you off course or even stop you from starting on the path towards what you want in life. Fortunately, you can do exactly this by following these five tips on how to train your brain to think positive thoughts all the time.

Start by believing

To start, try taking a long hard look at your beliefs. What do you believe about yourself? What do you believe about other people? What do you believe is possible in this world? If you don’t like what you see, it’s time for a change. 

Next, look at your thoughts. When was the last time you thought something negative about yourself or someone else? Notice that these thoughts are simply stories and are nothing more than that. They’re not facts and they’re not truths. Every time you tell one of those stories, even if just in your head, it becomes a little bit stronger. Every time you have an empowering story on the other hand, you build up its power as well. It all starts with being mindful of where your thoughts come from and being intentional with them.

Surround Yourself With Positive People

It’s important to make an active effort to surround yourself with people who want you to succeed. If you’re surrounded by negative people, it will be that much harder for you to think positively. Surrounding yourself with positive people will help tremendously and make your brain work better too! When we are around others, we tend to become more like them. So if you spend time with someone who is always happy and optimistic, chances are that you’ll feel happier as well.

Remove Your Negative People From Your Life

If you find yourself surrounded by negative people or constantly thinking negative thoughts, it might be time to take a step back and look at the situation. The first thing you should do is ask yourself if these people are truly worth your time. If you decide that they’re not, then it might be best for you to remove them from your life. This way, you’ll be able to surround yourself with more positive people and stop those negative thoughts from coming in.

Learn from your mistakes

It’s easy to focus on all of your mistakes, but it’s a better idea to learn from them. Every time you make a mistake, ask yourself what went wrong and try not to make that same mistake again. You can also keep track of your mistakes in a journal or spreadsheet and compare them with other people who are doing something similar as you.

Exercise

The best way to train your brain to think positive thoughts all the time is by practicing those thoughts. So, find one thing you want in your life and write it down. Then, every day, tell yourself that you have it. For example, I am happy, or I am loved. Say this out loud or in your head. You’ll notice after a while of doing this that the thoughts will start becoming a reality for you.

Get on top of your bills and debts

Too often, people who are in financial trouble do not have a plan for paying off their debts. Don’t be one of those people. Get on top of your bills and debts by writing down what you owe and making a list of all your assets and monthly income. Next, divide your monthly income by how much you owe each month to see how many months it will take you to pay off your debt.

Don’t compare yourself to others

Comparison is a dangerous game. It can lead you down the path of disappointment and feelings of inadequacy. You’ll find yourself thinking, If only I were like that person, things would be so much better. And in some ways they will be better because you will feel more fulfilled by being somebody else than by being yourself. Don’t compare your insides to someone else’s outsides. We all have our own unique way of seeing life and it’s not always what it seems from the outside. The grass always looks greener on the other side but don’t forget about all the fertilizer it took for those green blades to grow.

Accept Compliments graciously

When someone compliments you, pause before you respond and think about how you want to react. If you want to be gracious and appreciative, then say thank you. If it’s not a compliment that feels true, try deflecting with a self-deprecating joke. If you really don’t like the person or don’t feel good about what they said, then just smile politely and walk away. And don’t forget: You can always offer your own genuine compliment in return. It’ll go a long way toward building rapport and deepening the connection between you two!

Do something nice for someone every day

The best way I’ve found to think positive thoughts all day long is by doing something nice for someone else. It might be a friend, a stranger, your mom, or your cat–really anyone you interact with in some way. 

It could be as simple as giving them a compliment or asking them about their day. Or it could be something more elaborate like offering up your seat on the bus or volunteering at an animal shelter. You never know what one kind act will do for you and the person receiving it. You’ll feel good knowing that you’re spreading kindness throughout the world and improving people’s lives, which will in turn make yours better too!

Have a hobby you enjoy doing

I think that if you have a hobby you enjoy doing, then it will make it easier for your brain to think positive thoughts. For example, I like blogging, which is a really fun hobby of mine. I always feel better when I blog because it’s something that makes me happy and helps me focus on the positive things in life. Even though my blog might not seem all that important to others, it has helped me get through some tough times. The point is – find what makes you happy and do more of those things!
