It’s easy to let disappointments change your overall mindset. When things seem to go in every other direction except the one you want, you probably feel like giving up. However, keep in mind that challenges and obstacles are only temporary. With a positive mindset, giving up won’t be an option for you!
If you want to be a high-achiever, your only option is to eliminate negative thinking. You’re only as successful as the effort you put into making positive changes.
You can achieve a changed mindset in as little as 21 days. As you read on, you’ll see that all the tools you need are in the palm of your hand.
Commit to making these changes for 21 days:
1. Confront your disappointments. Avoid sweeping disappointments under the rug, even if you’d rather not face them. When you ignore them, the feelings that come along with being disappointed continue to linger.
- You owe it to yourself to free your mind. Latching on to disappointments holds you back from pursuing other opportunities.
- Look at each challenge as a stepping stone to becoming more successful later on.
2. Reflect on your achievements. Spend a moment each day making note of your achievements. Even include the smallest ones you can think of. Remember that the greatest architectural structures are built with the smallest morsels of stone.
- When you stop to think about it, you realize how many little things cause you to smile each day. Those small accomplishments mean a lot, even if the impact doesn’t seem far-reaching at the time.
- Avoid allowing disappointments to diminish the joy of your achievements. You deserve every good thing in life. Remind yourself of that every day.
3. Center yourself spiritually. Spiritual balance is important to ensuring inner peace. This leads to positive living. When you’re at ease with what’s happening in your life, it’s difficult for disappointments to take control of you.
- Spiritual peace is the glue that holds this unpredictable world together. It’s what allows you to be more accepting of situations at the end of each day.
- Take time each day to connect with your Creator God! Pray to Him and give your worries over to Him. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4: 6-7
4. Surround yourself with positivity. Positive influences help to build your new mindset. Make a special effort each day to see and converse with people who bring only the best to your encounter.
- Having your family and friends around can remind you of how beautiful life can be. Their support can make a world of difference in your life.
The basic idea is to make these adjustments every day for 21 days. It takes 21 days for habits to form, whether good or bad. Your aim is to form positive habits and use them to build a happy life.
On day 22, you’ll realize how much you yearn to do everything you practiced for the last 21 days. You’ll find yourself wanting to implement your new standards of positive living. And that’s when you know that you’ve created a positive thinker with all the promise in the world!
