I have been listening to a fabulous CD set by Brendon Burchard, called the ‘Motivation Manifesto’. I read the book and now I have the CD set in my car to listen to as I drive to my destinations. It keeps me focused, positive and calm. I recommend the book or CD set to everyone. It’s THAT good! If you don’t know who Brendon Buchard is, he is a #1 New York Times bestselling author and one of the most watched personal development trainers in the world. Google him and all kinds of positive things come up…
If you are struggling with ways to help you think more positively, here are just a few suggestions to get you started:
- Get a coach, mentor or a guide. That is exactly why I listen to CDs and read books by Brendon Burchard, Tony Robbins, Wayne Dyer and a host of other uplifting folks.
- Use hypnotherapy, meditation and/or yoga to redirect your thoughts as well as to help you bring your attention to your breath. Why? Because, most of us breathe shallowly, cutting off the oxygen to our brain. When we breathe deeply, our thoughts become more clear and focused.
- Smile at people. Start with yourself. Get up and stand in front of a mirror and SMILE at yourself! It really does help change your mood and relieve stress. I also felt lighter because it takes fewer muscles to smile than to frown. Now, go out and smile at others. Most people will smile back at you!
- Sing! I can’t carry a tune (ask anyone!) But music MOVES me and I can’t help dancing, moving and singing. It helps change my ‘state’ every time.
