Here Are 10 Ways To Take Back Control Of Your Life!

**Time Management

**Goal Setting

** Record Tracking

At first glance, it would seem that positive thinking and a lack of self discipline have nothing in common and

have nothing to do with one another. That could not be further from the truth. Many of us who lack focus and find

it difficult to concentrate develop negative thinking patterns because we become frustrated by our challenges

and frequent feelings of being overwhelmed. This negative outlook then makes it difficult for us to manage our

lives, take control of our challenges and move forward in a positive direction.

Practicing positive thinking skills allow people who cannot focus concentrate on strengths and

accomplishments, which increases motivation. The ability to focus allow us to spend more time making

progress, and less time feeling stuck in the trenches.

These Positive Thinking Tips provide practical suggestions that you can use to help you shift gears into more

positive thinking patterns:

1. Take Good Care of Yourself

It’s much easier to be positive when you are eating well, exercising, and getting enough rest.

2. Remind Yourself of the Things You Are Grateful For

Stresses and challenges don’t seem quite as bad when you are constantly reminding yourself of the things that are

right in life and the things that you are most greatful for.

Take out 60 seconds a day to stop and appreciate the good things in life, you will begin to see what difference the

short exercise will make.

3. Look for the Proof Instead of Making Assumptions

A fear of not being liked or accepted sometimes leads us to assume that we know what others are thinking, but

our fears are usually not reality. If you have a fear that a friend or family member’s bad mood is due to something

you did, or that your co-workers are secretly gossiping about you when you turn your back, speak up and ask

them. Don’t waste time worrying that you did something wrong unless you have proof that there is something to

worry about.

4. Refrain from Using Absolutes

Have you ever told a partner “You’re ALWAYS late!” or complained to a friend “You NEVER call me!”? Thinking

and speaking in absolutes like ‘always’ and ‘never’ makes the situation seem worse than it is, and programs your

brain into believing that certain people are incapable of delivering.

5. Detach From Negative Thoughts

Your thoughts can’t hold any power over you if you don’t judge them. If you notice yourself having a negative

thought, detach from it, witness it, and don’t follow it.

6. Squash the “ANTS”

In his book “Change Your Brain, Change Your Life,” Dr. Daniel Amen talks about “ANTs” – Automatic Negative

Thoughts. These are the bad thoughts that are usually reactionary, like “Those people are laughing, they must be

talking about me,” or “The boss wants to see me? It must be bad!” When you notice these thoughts, realize that

they are nothing more than ANTs and squash them!

7. Practice Lovin’, Touchin’ & Squeezin’ (Your Friends and Family)

You don’t have to be an expert to know the benefits of a good hug. Positive physical contact with friends, loved

ones, and even pets, is an instant pick-me-up. One research study on this subject had a waitress touch some of

her customers on the arm as she handed them their checks. She received higher tips from these customers than

from the ones she didn’t touch!

8. Increase Your Social Activity

By increasing social activity, you decrease loneliness. Surround yourself with healthy, happy people, and their

positive energy will affect you in a positive way!

9. Volunteer for an Organization, or Help another Person

Everyone feels good after helping. You can volunteer your time, your money, or your resources. The more

positive energy you put out into the world, the more you will receive in return.

10. Use Pattern Interrupts to Combat Rumination

If you find yourself ruminating, a great way to stop it is to interrupt the pattern and force yourself to do something completely different. Rumination is like hyper-focus on something negative. It’s never productive, because it’s not rational or solution-oriented, it’s just excessive worry. Try changing your physical environment – go for a
walk or sit outside. You could also call a friend, pick up a book, or turn on some music.

When it comes to the corporate world, protocol is pretty much the religion. To know the things needed to do are
the basics of productivity, but interaction and having a steady mind makes up the entire thing to true
productivity. There are those who seem to work well even under pressure, but they’re uncommon ones and we are human and imperfect.

To get these little things like stress under our skins won’t solve our problems.

Lastly, Just Get Out Of Your Own Way! Focus on the Great Things In Life and Concentrate On Achieving Your
Goals and Dreams……Sometimes it takes a bit of courage to admit that we’re turning to be workaholics than tell
ourselves that we’re not doing our best.
