Key Components of Forming A Positive Mindset To Change Your Life

We as humans are prone to dream, and to materialize the dream we have the ability to practice freewill. However, the social conditions, the economy, jobs, bills and so on, all make it difficult to practice freewill and we have to stay within our constraints and never express things the way we want to express them. This is where the power of our mind and its way of thinking comes in.


Our mind is the key component that can make all the adversity look as a challenge and all the joy a wave of sadness, therefore, it is imperative that the mindset you have towards life is positive. When you have a positive mindset, you will be able to face adverse situations and make the most out of it. In the lines below I shall discuss with you the factors required for forming a positive mindset to change your life.


Key Components of Forming A Positive Mindset To Change Your LifeBelieve In Yourself


All those who believe in themselves are the ones who climb up the ladder of success and changed the way people thought about them. Most successful entrepreneurs advocate the fact that the process of formation of a positive mindset starts with believing in oneself. If you don’t believe in yourself, then you would never think well about life or yourself, and if you don’t feel good about anything ultimately you won’t get anything good. Therefore, for forming a positive mindset to change your life, you need to believe in yourself.


Commit To Developing your Mindset


Once you have resolved that you are going to develop a positive mindset, then the next thing you need to do is to commit to your mind and not feed negative thoughts to it. This commitment is easier said than done, however, it is also a fact that if you keep on feeding negative thoughts that pollute the mind instead of feeding healthy thoughts to it, then the brain will start forming a gloomy picture about everything. Therefore, whenever in a dilemma, start feeding positive things to your mind, and it will respond by focusing on the silver lining.


Be Grateful


I am aware of the fact that economy is going through challenging times, people can be deceitful, and there is no stability in life, however, I still recommend being grateful for whatever little you have, as it is what nourishes a positive mindset. If you don’t own a house, then don’t fret about it, rather be grateful for the rental apartment you have. If you are running short on bills, then instead of lamenting upon it be grateful for the fact that you have a job and at the end of month you’ll be able to pay the bills. If you don’t have a job then be grateful for a supporting family and friends circle who will help you get back on your feet. The list goes on, the point I want to make is that there is always something you can be grateful about even in the most adverse situations. Therefore, nourish your mind with the spirit of gratefulness and you’ll progress leaps and bounds towards a positive mindset.


draußen sitzenChange The Surroundings


If despite everything, you aren’t able to think positive and look at the bright or other side of the picture, then perhaps it’s time you change your surroundings. The place you live in, the people around you, the colleagues, friend’s circle, the movies you watch, the kind of music you listen to all affect your mind. Therefore, whenever you don’t see light at the end of the tunnel, it is time that you step back a little and change your route. Going deep into the tunnel with no vision might not turnout the way you think. Hence, to change your mindset you might require a break from your current place and go someplace where you can find serenity and get a better picture in your mind.


Now it’s Your Turn!


Having a positive mindset is one of the most important traits required for achieving success in life, what do you say? What do you think is most important to having a positive mindset?

      It does take commitment. It’s a process. A process that will take patience in order to wash out any type of bad programming in your mind.

    Hi Nate,

    Expressing gratitude forms a conduit to good! What better way to change your mindset.

    I wake each morning thankful for a wide range of people and things. I speak a gratitude list to change my vibe and life.

    Focus on your good and you will receive more good things to be grateful for.

    Thanks buddy!

    • Nate Leung

      What I always say, wake up, be blessed and count your blessings!

    Great ;post Nate! Having a positive mindset helps and changing your surroundings which is great to do with a laptop or your phone.
    Going outside and listening to nature and reading always helps my mindset and positive thinking. Thank you for sharing

    Hi Nate,

    You hit the nail on the head with this one! We really cannot accomplish much without a positive mindset. Yes, the economy is fragile right now, but there is always something we can do.

    When it comes to business, our mindset is so important. Even if we are just writing a blog post and are not in a positive state of mind, people will see through that!

    When it comes to marketing, it can be a huge challenge. But keeping that mindset of ours healthy is important.

    I like your suggestion of commitment. It is the only way we can improve our mindset. I too have committed to this. If I find myself straying, I have many techniques I use up my sleeve to get me back on track.

    Also changing surroundings is a great idea! I have actually moved because of the negativity around me. I live in a peaceful place now whereby I can really focus and take walks on the beach!

      Hi Donna,

      Most people are willing to be unhappy and stay stuck in their lives. Changing and moving your body in the right direction is always a good idea in order to remove negativity from your life.

    Fantastic Post. I tell myself that I am enough and start naming my accomplishments. This usually helps me to get back on track.

  12. Joan Harrington

    Awesome post here Nate!!! Thank you for always providing such fantastic value!!!

  13. Jason Power

    Hello Nate,

    I think changing your surroundings is a great tip here. Sometimes things can get very routine and can feel stagnant. Changing surroundings can make you feel like you have a fresh start.

  14. kungphoo

    Great advice.. I think changing your mindset is very key to success!

  15. Esha

    Agree with you on all especially being grateful! Nice post Nate!

  16. Matt Ritchey

    Positive mindset is such a crucial asset. For me, gratitude was the key ingredient. Once I did gratitude consistently, it rewired my brain to see the positive in every situation!

  17. Vince

    Awesome post as always Nate. Positive mindset is key in any and every life situation. We have not even begun to tap the power of the human brain and all of us have something special inside of us and being positive and grateful will help that special person come out.. You always bring the value.. I enjoy reading your posts.

  18. Jon Patrick

    Good advice, as always Nate!
    First, having an “attitude of gratitude” is critical, and if people spend the effort to work on this, they will be shocked at the change in their lives!
    Second, change surroundings. It’s easy to get into a place of can’t see the forest for the trees. I find that even a few minutes away from the computer and house can have amazing effects in unlocking my creativity! Most blog topics I think of are while driving!

    • Nate Leung

      Hi Jon,

      Most topics that we think of usually happens and flows naturally when we are not working. You bring up a great point! Thank you. 🙂

    I am always mindful of the quote, “If my mind can conceive it and my heart can believe it, then I can achieve it.

  20. Judy Garey

    A healthy, positive mindset is the key to having success in any area of our lives.

  21. Kenee

    Growth is a daily practice that one must practice to guarantee tomorrow’s success!

  22. Julie Kemeny

    I love all of these, Nate! I find that changing my environment once in a while helps get the creative juices flowing when I’m in a slump.

  23. Cindy

    I definitely believe in the importance of gratitude. Although I find it can be much easier to focus on the negatives. But I am working on it.

    Hey Nate,

    Having a positive mentality is a way to keep your mind open for opportunities to grow. Whether it’s personal growth or business growth, this is what needs to be focused on.

    One thing i like that you mentioned is being grateful for what you have. This is do to having an open mind. It provides personal balance. Yes there may be some challenges, but you want to look on the other side of the coin in order to be balance. It will neutralize yourself so that you can be able to adjust to the expected and unexpected.

    Also you want to be committed to your mindset. You want to keep feeding the things that’s going to keep you focus, letting ideas come in so that you can go ahead and execute them. They said Thomas Edison failed 10.000 times before perfecting the light bulb. can you imagine that? It shows how determined and confident he was. Imagine if we all have that mentality!

    Thanks for sharing!

  25. Ron Killian

    Nice post Nate 🙂

    I couldn’t agree more, a positive mindset is a must. And yes belief is another big part of the success equation. To me, belief also leads to motivation and taking action. Hard to do what you need to if you don’t believe.

    As for gratitude, I made my own blank list, just a simple PDF, printed out an needed. On it I list everything I am grateful for. The plan was to do it every day, but that has not happened yet 🙂
