seven ways to maintain a positive Mindset
1- Visualize yourself as you want to be.
Visualization is the technique of seeing an image of yourself that you are proud of, in your own mind. Practice visualizing a fantastic version of yourself, achieving your goals.
2- Affirm yourself
Affirmation is positive and uplifting statements that we say to ourselves. We tend to behave in accordance with our own self-image. The trick to making lasting change is to change how you view yourself.
3- Do a thing that scares you every day.
If you are insecure, guess what? The rest of the world is too. Do not overestimate the competition and underestimate yourself. You are better than you think. The best way to overcome fear is to face it head-on. By doing something that scares you every day and gaining confidence from every experience, you will see yourself confidence soar. So, get out of your comfort zone and face your fears.
4- Question your inner critic.
You have been criticizing yourself for years, and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.
5- Take the 100 days of rejection challenge.
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
6- Set yourself up to win.
Too many people are discouraged about their abilities because they set themselves goals that are too difficult to achieve. Start by setting yourself small goals that you can win easily.
7- Help someone else.
Helping someone else often enables us to forget about ourselves and to feel grateful for what we have. It also feels good when you are able to make a difference for someone else.
Instead of focusing on your own weaknesses, volunteer to mentor, practically assist or teach another, and you’ll see your self- confidence grow automatically in the process.
