Positive Thinking - Anxiety & Panic
If you suffer with or have in the past suffered with anxiety and panic disorder, then you certainly know what its like to be swallowed up by your negative thoughts and feelings.
Someone asks "Hey, how was your day?" and your typical reply is "bad" "crap" or "sh!#" oops I don't think I can say that word here ;-) Your entire vocabulary seems to only exist of negative words, like death, pain, torture, cancer, bad, hard. Just reading those words gives a negative vibe.
But what if you use words like happy, joyful, delightful, inspiration, great, fantastic! Suddenly your mood begins to shift.
Now if words have the power to affect how we feel, I believe it would stand to reason that we CAN actually have control over our emotions.
If we can have control over our emotions, then that means we can directly affect and choose how we live in our inner world. If your inner world is happy and positive then your outer world will reflect this.
If you make a conscious decision to be positive, happy and cheerful to name a few, then you will magnetize people who think like minded. Your environment and surroundings will be a positive experience for you.
If you choose to indulge in self defeating thoughts and depressive emotions, then expect your surroundings to be with the same like minded people. Competing with one another "who's life is worse". Do you ever come off feeling good after a conversation like that anyway?
I know which avenue I choose?
I choose to make my surroundings positive, I choose to find the positive in everything no matter how bleak the situation may look to others, I choose to continuously look for more new fresh positive ways to influence my life.
And for anyone who says that's all good and well for a day or so but how can you manage to do that consistently then, I want you to consider this quote, and you can choose how to interpret it in any fashion you desire:
"People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily." - Zig Ziglar
