Mental fitness is like physical fitness. We develop high levels of self-esteem and a positive attitude with training and practice. Here are some tips on how to become more positive and happy.
Speak to yourself positively; control your inner dialog. Use positive affirmations phrased in the positive, present, and personal tense:
- “I like myself!”
- “I can do it!”
- “I feel terrific!”
- “I am responsible!”
We believe that fully 95% of your emotions are determined by the manner you consult with yourself as you go throughout your day. The sad reality is that if you don’t deliberately and consciously talk to yourself in a positive and constructive way, you will, by default, think about things that will make you unhappy or cause you to worry and anxiety.
Your mind is like a garden. If you do not deliberately plant flowers and tend carefully, weeds can grow with none encouragement in any respect.
Perhaps the most powerful ability that we have is the ability to visualize and see our goals as already accomplished. Create a clear, exciting picture of your goal and your ideal life, and replay this picture in your mind over and over.
All improvement in your life begins with an improvement in your mental footages. As you “see” yourself on the inside, you will “be” on the outside.
Your choice of the people with whom you live, work, and an associate will have more of an impact on your emotions and your success than any other factor. Decide today to keep company with winners, with positive people, with people who are happy and optimistic and who are going somewhere with their lives.
Avoid negative people at all costs. Negative people are the primary source of most of life’s unhappiness. Resolve that from today onward, you are not going to have stressful or negative people in your life.
Your mind is healthy to the degree to which you feed it. With “mental protein” rather than “mental candy.” Read books, magazines, and articles that are educational, inspirational, or motivational. Feed your mind with information and ideas that are uplifting and that make you feel happy and more confident regarding yourself and your world.
Listen to positive, constructive CDs and audio programs in your car and on your MP3 player or iPod. Feed your mind frequently with positive messages that help you think and act higher. Which makes you more capable and competent in your field. Watch positive and educational DVDs, educational television programs, online courses, and other uplifting material that increases your knowledge and makes you feel good about yourself and your life.

Positive Training And Development
Almost everybody in our society starts off with limited resources, sometimes with no money at all. Virtually all fortunes begin with the sale of personal services of some kind. All the people who are at the top today were once at the bottom, and sometimes they fell to the bottom several times. The miracle of lifelong learning and personal improvement is what takes you from poorness to richness, and from underachievement to success. When you dedicate yourself to learning, growing, becoming better and more effective in your thoughts and actions, you take complete control of your life. It will dramatically increase the speed at which you progress upward to greater heights.
Positive Health Habits
Take excellent care of your physical health and wellbeing. Eat healthy foods, natural and nutritious, and eat them sparingly and in proper balance. A nutritional diet will have an immediate, positive effect on your thoughts and feelings. Try to get regular exercise, at least two hundred minutes of motion per week. It can be walking, running, swimming, bicycling, or working out on equipment in the gym. When you exercise on a regular basis, you feel happier and healthier and experience lower levels of stress and fatigue. But you should also get ample rest and relaxation. You need to relax on a regular basis, especially when you are going through periods of stress or difficulty.
Some of the factors that predispose us to negative emotions of all kinds are poor health habits, sleep deprivation, lack of exercise, and nonstop work. Seek balance in your life.
Practicing the Law of Attraction is one of the most powerful techniques you can use to become a positive person. It ensures positive outcomes and better results in your life. Your expectations become your own self-fulfilling prophesies. Whatever you expect, with confidence, seems to come into your life. Since you can control your expectations, you should always expect the best.
Expect to be popular when you meet new people, to achieve great goals and create a wonderful life for yourself. When you constantly expect good things to happen, you will seldom be disappointed.
