Now,here are practical and proven ways to help you live a positive life.
Ignore what others say
Whilst we want others to like us and we try to impress many people,it is so important for you to ignore anything you believe other people may say or think about you.People who react or speak negatively about you do not deserve your time so do not let them have your thoughts and cause you anger or concern.
Worry about loving yourself instead of loving the idea of other people loving you
Imagine a positive environment
Our imaginations are a powerful thing that can help create visual images that can either make us happy or sad. If you are feeling like someone or something is making you uncomfortable or sad,close your eyes or do something that helps you to step back and imagine something visual that makes you calm and happy. Grab that positive thought and turn it into an action when you react to the situation at hand.

Use positive language
This does not apply to when taking to people alone,it also applies to your inner thoughts. Tell yourself regularly that you are powerful and capable and when you start to think something negative,remind yourself of only positive things.This same does no where apply when talking to other people. Even if those people are being unkind to you,you need to ensure you respond with positive words. Not only will you be a bigger and better person as you have not lowered yourself to their level. You will only see an expected reaction from the people who have spoken to you badly as they will not be expecting you to respond in this way.
This may sound like a simple and obvious instruction,but it is something that we often do not remember and we can be affected if we are not smiling regularly. Just by smiling,our positive energy will start restoring itself and will begin to take effect on how we feel. It helps to begin the process of thinking positively.
Be Constructive with your thoughts.
There will be times when you will want to think negatively. During those times,you should take that negative thought and embrace it then turn it into a constructive one. Think, “OK,I am not happy at this moment,how can I change that and make the situation better,What can I do to change this feeling to a happy one?” If you go back to thinking negatively,continue repeating this process to start training your brain to think positively.
Visualize achieving your dreams
You can imagine how you want to achieve your goals and dreams. Even if you are not sure whether those goals and dreams are within reach at this particular moment in time,you have the right to think about them as they will create a positive outlook and state of mind. Everybody had something they strive towards. Believe me! You have every right to imagine your successes in the future as long as you remind yourself to live in that moment and be positive when you are thinking about those wishes.
Turn your failures into life’s lessons
The honest truth is that no one is perfect and we all make mistakes. What is important is that we do not see these mistakes as something to prevent us from moving forward. We all have the capacity to turn what we see ad personal failure into something positive as failure can only aid us in growing as a person emotionally and physically. When you have moments of doubts after something may have happened that you are not happy about, pause and think about what you can do next time to learn from the situation. Furthermore,even if you are not able to do what you have decided would have been a better approach,you will be able to start building that positive mentality that will help you make better decisions in the long run.
When life puts you in a negative situation,don’t say “Why me” say “Try me”
It is very important for you to have an approach that is reflective rather than self a depreciating as this will help you begin to see yourself in a more positive light. It is very easy to fall prey to negative thoughts and to criticize yourself and others when in a situation that makes you unhappy,but this train of thought will only bring you pain and anger in the long run. More importantly,it will add to any stress or anxiety you may experience.
Negative thoughts can drain your energy and our flow of energy is what helps us to lead a harmonious life..
