Believe in Yourself

It happens many times in our life that some matter is before us for consideration. We take up that matter and think over the same taking into account all the pros and cons and after some time, we decide to act upon, not to act upon or to take necessary follow-up action to reach to some destination. We may take a thought after due deliberations and attract it into our life with full sincerity! Believe me, our strong determination would not just pull us out of depths of despair and cure of diseases, but surprisingly, it may even influence our status by just believing in ourselves and reconsolidating our resources afresh and there would be a happy outcome!
When we focus on something, no matter what it happens to be, we are really calling that into existence – The Secret. If we think that our future will be good, and believe so, the optimism in us will do things to make it better. If something mishappens, we would definitely take it as a matter of chance and retry with more vigour as we think that our future is good. Take it granted that the like attract likes. Everything that’s coming into your life you are attracting into your universe. You are the most powerful magnet in the universe. . . so as you think a thought, you are also attracting like thoughts to you.
If you’re an optimistic, you’ll be thinking happy thoughts, your life will have happy moments. When you focus your thoughts on something you want, and you hold that focus, you are in that moment summoning what you want from the Universe. Never give up believing good things, it will happen to you. The energy of the good vibe translates into positive action. In life, you must be prepared to laugh off all negativity. It will help you to prepare to face the worst also, if somewhere you might have overestimated your resources. In that event, you would immediately proceed to review what had gone wrong and you may improve in your further process.
Latest studies on optimism show how optimists have more stable cardiovascular systems, more responsive immune systems than pessimists. They also have a stronger sense of self-efficacy. So they’re more likely to invoke healthier behaviours because they think they can make a difference. The new view of optimism theory says, that for optimism to have real impact on health and your work, you have to actively practice it in your daily life, merely thinking positive is not enough.
Being optimistic has long been considered an asset when battling an illness or overcoming an adversity. The patients heal faster if they have a positive attitude towards their illness. They want to walk again and don’t give too much attention to their pain. If a patient has courage and resolve, he’ll heal faster. This miracle happens.
Optimists aren’t just smiley-faced romantics. They’re realists who resolve to solve problems. Once a lady, known to me, was physically, emotionally and financially in “total despair.” She narrated to me that when her father died suddenly, she was worried about her grief-stricken mother. “I wept and wept and wept, and I didn’t want her to see me sobbing. But when I began to believe that my father won’t come back and I will have to stand at my own to care for my widow mother, I started attracting good things in my life. Miracles started happening, I Became healthier, richer and famous,” she says. “That was the beginning of new life for me”. She restarted her fashion designing work and today, she is the more rich and happy than she was before the death of her father.
If you believe the future will be good, you’ll persist though tough times whether you’re naturally cheerful or not. In a study, those graduates who were optimists at age 25, had better health outcomes for the next three decades. It is the act of engaging with the world, of taking concrete steps towards goals, that improves health. Grounded optimism gives the brain a built-in action potential: it replaces emotion with motion. Everything starts with one thought. Emotions are an outcome of our thinking. Every thought changes the chemistry of the body. To be considered an optimist you have to have a positive long-term outlook and some degree of hope for the future.
If a pregnant lady says “I’m very happy. I see a smiling baby everyday in my dreams. I tell myself, I’m healthy.” She gave a healthy normal delivery. If someone says, “I’m very nervous. I don’t know what will happen. Will I be able to tackle the pain of delivery?” There were some complications. These studies reveal that there is power in positive thinking. Optimists have less labour pains and few chances of miscarriage, it has been proved.
Optimism leads to increases well-being as it leads you to engage actively in life. Optimism is whether people will remain engaged in life after falling ill. If you have a disease, and focusing on it, talking to people about it, you’re creating more diseased cells. Tell yourself 100 times a day: ‘I’m fit, I’m healthy’. Say, ‘I feel wonderful. I feel good’. And give powerful images and energy to yourself to feel healthy.” The people to whom you say won’t dare to call you a patient, they won’t be able to discourage you if they had some enmity with you even.
Optimism has less to do with mood and more to do with persistence. We adopt negative beliefs and unfounded fears from the world around us. These become our invisible fences. We think they are real. You must question your invisible fences. You must bring some awareness to them. You will have to challenge them. You must pin them down. So that when one confronts you, rather than running away from it, you exercise the force of will and talent of heart to run through it. That is the meaning of true optimism. It’s not just in thought but in action too.
But how does optimism work? Ask someone who lost employment very recently. Things couldn’t get any worse. There’s no sorrow or despair beyond that for him/her. How does one remain an optimist? You can do by showing gratitude for the help you got during your employment. You will have to look at the brighter side of life. If you have the right spirit, life only gets better as perhaps the period until you get next employment can be a boon to you to review your abilities, to brush up them for new challenge, new avenues for employment.
Kindly take it granted that everything you focus on can have an effect on your life. All of that affects how we feel, and the feelings actually send out a wave into the universe, and anything that’s vibrating in a similar level gets attracted into our life. Most people focus on the bad and sad things. We talk about our current reality – ‘I’m in debt. I’m over-weight. I’m not happy, I’m sad’. And the more you think about that, the more you attract that (negativity).” For a happier life, you must work on how you can get happy.
Optimism means never having to compromise on your dreams. If one door closes, another door opens. You need to find out where that open door is present. You can only have one thought at a time. This is the key to feeling optimistic, enjoying your life, and fulfilling your vision for a delightful life. You only can keep one thought in you head at a time. So, what would your one thought be? Dwell on what you want to accomplish. Do not dwell on what you do not want. You must expect the best out of your resources. What are you thinking about? Do you have goal or an exciting vision for living your life? A man is what he thinks about all day long. Generally, as you begin your day or a project, you frame-of-mind proves extremely important.
For optimism, you will have to have strong imagination, strong determination. Wishy-washy people do not go very far. They get swayed by whatever crosses their paths. In contrast, the people who move mountains, people who get things done, are people who feel a profound sense of mission. They dive into their projects with gusto. Every highly successful person is a maniac on a mission.
If you adopt optimism in the very beginning of any project, your approach will serve your purpose to some degree. Now, you would have a tremendous opportunity to feel more confident and optimistic than you ever may have dreamed possible. You can unleash your energy and hone your focus on what you most want. Only optimist and persistent people achieve more than their less persistent colleagues and for becoming optimist and persistent, you will have to believe in yourself that you can do what you decide without caring for what the other people will say. Be Happy – believe in yourself.
