Everyone is talking about the power of positive thinking and the very many benefits associated with it. A lot of situations in our day to day life could be better with a change of perspective. Take Money for instance, how positive are you about the money & wealth in your life? Positive thinking can help you expect better things and thus allow you to recognize more opportunities thereby increasing your money situation.

But the real question is how do you even start the process of 'Positive Thinking' and how do you really keep up the momentum.
I am International Leadership & Life Coach Akanksha, and today, in this article, I am going to share with you how to build and maintain a positive mindset, and attract more brilliance in your life. Follow the exercise for each day in the 7 day pattern described below and see how things turn out for you.
"In order to carry a positive action we must develop here a positive vision."  - Dalai Lama

Day 1 - Start with a simple 'Thank You'
Gratitude is a very powerful thing. It has the power to shift our focus almost instantly. Today, you focus is only on finding things to Thank for. Let us begin here, with a vote of Thanks from me to you:
"I Thank you for taking the time to read this article. I am ever so grateful to you for embracing the thought of positive thinking through this article and sharing it with your near & dear ones. Thank You"
See, that is how simple and genuine a Thank you can be! And it puts you at a place of higher energy.
Day 2 - Self Affirmation - 'Today, I am brimming with energy and overflowing with joy.'
Energy can get so much done and make you feel good. This is the reason people like working out or being healthy. It is the positive feeling energy that comes along with it. That is the source energy people are trying to connect with via meditation and yoga. And eventually, we all come to realize that the foundation of positive energy starts with a mindset shift. And reaffirming good feelings is a key stone in building that mindset. At the start of your day, each day, repeat a simple thought like " Today, I am brimming with energy and overflowing with joy". And believe in it.
As you continue your repetition all through the day, the energy will always present itself. And soon changes will start to reflect in your life experience.

Day 3 - Let them know they matter
The people we truly care about, are the people whose existence matters to us and adds to your presence on this planet. And if they hold that importance, they must have done something right. Thank them for that. Let them know that they really matter in your life, and share your feelings of unbound love & care. This strengthens you and uplifts for entire being.
Day 4 - Appreciate yourself and forgive yourself for any mistakes you have made
We get so busy living our ultra-busy lives that we forget about the most important person in the world - You. Your world exists because of you. Take the time to appreciate yourself for all that you are and all the journey you have gone through. Life is journey of learning. Accept yourself, appreciate yourself and forgive yourself for your mistakes. Don't punish yourself any longer, rather strive for betterment & excellence. And Excellence starts with appreciating what you have right now.

Day 5 - Self affirmation - 'I am admired. People look up to me and recognize my worth.'
You have made it so far, and you are doing good. Next, we take the process of self-appreciation a step further. There are always some people around you who admire you for who you are. It is time to fill yourself up with that feeling all through Day 5. From morning till night repeat to yourself at least 20 times in the day - am admired. People look up to me and recognize my worth.'
This small exercise helps us tune our subconscious mind and attracts us to the people who like us back.
Day 6 - Smile more
On Day 6, your only task is to smile and smile and smile some more. And this is your best confident genuine smile that is your trademark. Focus on smiling. Find reasons to smile all through the day. Maybe you see a pretty flower, or a soft white cloud or feel the warm sum - Just Smile.
A Smile hold the power to shift your thinking pattern to a more positive one. A smile can open new doors & opportunities for you. People trust people who smile often.

The more you smile through the day, the more positive will be your developements towards money & abundance in all forms. Smile with all your heart as much as you can.
Day 7 - Focus on your Thoughts & moods
Today is about looking back at the week gone by and how you have done so far on these exercises. Notice if there are any changes in your mood or thought patter. Take special note of your emotions and which thoughts are making you happy. Take time to consciously think the thoughts that make you happy all through the day. The magic starts in your mind before it manifests in your life. Use this knowledge to empower yourself and create a life as you desire it to be.

Next Steps:
Congratulations! You have made it one complete week with a positive mindset. As you progress through the week while doing these exercised, you will notice that your mind is automatically directed to thinking more optimistically.
  • To make the positive mindset permanent, try to repeat this exercise for 4 weeks. It will tune your mind and program it to a positive outlook & outcomes.
