Think positively: Here's how you can learn!

Perhaps you are also in a situation where you often have negative views that get in your own way. We give you tips on how to think positively.

Positive thinking: Introduction
Have you ever thought about how much your perspective and attitude towards yourself and life influence your well-being and success? Strong optimism and positive thinking are often condemned, especially here in Germany, that one should rather remain "realistic".
The origins of positive thinking lie in France, where the French pharmacist Émile Coué investigated the power of thoughts about the success of medicines and ultimately established the principle of autosuggestion.
Autosuggestion deals with developing positive beliefs that become anchored in memory based on repetitive thoughts. At that time, however, this principle was only concerned with people who had to deal with negative experiences, such as a serious illness.
Nowadays, science and especially psychology are intensively studying people and the effects of their thoughts on their lives. With this article, we want to give you tips on how to view life in a more relaxed way and how to achieve more success in all areas of life through optimism.

Positive thinking: Why we almost all think too negatively
To learn how to integrate positive thinking well into our lives, we first need to look at the current situation.
Our minds are trained to think in terms of problems. Every day we face countless challenges, big and small. Even when we are resting, so many thoughts rattling around in our heads, dealing with the past or the future, often playing out problems that are not real at all and never come to pass.
However, some problems also occur precisely because we give our thoughts the power to focus totally on them. Because even though our fear keeps us from making life-threatening decisions, like jumping off a skyscraper, its problem thinking also too often prevents us from taking a step in the direction that scares us.
Positive thinking: The mind wants to protect us
Asking the boss for a raise
Asking someone out on a date
Taking a trip around the world
Leaving familiar surroundings
Our mind always wants to protect us from defeat and disappointment. But while in the Stone Age almost every decision was a matter of life or death, nowadays it's mostly just a matter of fear of briefly enduring bad feelings of rejection or failure.

Negative thoughts and feelings thus dominate our minds so that we never have to be disappointed or move too far out of our so comfortable comfort zone, if possible.

Think positively: 3 practical tips
Thinking creates reality: we have already learned that our mind wants to protect us from problems and keep us in the comfort zone. For example, if you're convinced that you can't do something, you'll also be insecure and negative about it, if you take it on at all. So positive thinking, as the name implies, has something to do with conditioning our thoughts. Some people it helps to stand in front of the mirror every morning and memorize positive mantras like "I am good", "I can achieve anything". For others, this just drags them down even more, as the mind immediately tries to fight against it. Just try it yourself for a few weeks (not a few days!).
Gratitude: Try to be grateful for something beautiful in your life, for example, your family or health, and at the same time be angry or sad. It will be difficult for you. Gratitude is a basic requirement for content, happy life. Make it a habit to write down three things you are grateful for every day before you go to sleep.
Subjective truth: In life, there is nothing that is not evaluated and thus conditioned by us humans. If you yourself are strongly bound to social norms like "That's just the way it is" or "This kind of situation is always bad", it will be difficult for you to implement positive thinking. Realize that everyone sees the world through their own filters and you are completely free to think something is good or bad. Positive thinking is a conscious choice, nothing more, nothing less.
Thinking positively: avoid these two mistakes
Dealing with setbacks: Positive thinking doesn't mean you think everything is great now and overplay true feelings. If you get your bike stolen or you mess up a project, you're not supposed to be happy about it and act like it's awesome. Positive thinking deals with how you handle a situation, what you make of it. Positive people continue to be disappointed sometimes and know that life always has setbacks. But they don't then get into a negative vortex and curse about life, instead, they look ahead productively and consider what next step will turn the tide again.
Seeking happiness on the outside: People who want to think positively by hook or by crook now often then ask themselves after two weeks, "What good does this do me now? I still haven't found the love of my life or my dream job!" Being positive always comes from an inner conviction and not from the expectation that if you force it for a few days, you will attract all the luck in the world. Be grateful for every day you spend in this world and really realize that you can be happy for so many things in life. A disgruntled, unhappy mind is not a good basis for thinking positively.

Negative thoughts probably make some situations incredibly difficult for all of us. Wondering what other tips you can use to go through life positively? Meditation is a good way to show you how to get rid of your thoughts. We show you how you can learn meditation and give you, for example, the Osho meditation and the Vipassana meditation to the hand.
