How to think positive when everything is going wrong? As you outline your goals for 2017, think of them optimistically. It will help you achieve them and be more creative.
With the new year just around the corner, you may be thinking about what your purposes will be. But while some entrepreneurs believe that success will bring happiness, happiness expert Shawn Achor, author of The Happiness Advantage, says that it is actually the other way around.
4 Ways Of Creating Positive Thoughts In 2017
Having a positive perception can help you make better intentions and make them more likely to be fulfilled. "When the brain is positive, releases neurochemicals called accelerators success as dopamine and light a part of the brain that allows you to perceive more possibilities and process more information," says Achor. In contrast, a negative mentality causes the brain to feel threatened, closing itself off to new opportunities.
"Your brain is three times more creative when you are in a positive state," says Achor. And while it is crucial to have a positive mentality throughout the year, it is especially critical at the end, when we begin to reflect on the past and set our goals.
So before setting your goals, follow these four tips to have a positive mental state:
1. Do not start from scratchwhen you make your plans, start by listing the achievements of the previous year. "The brain speeds up towards the goals it perceives is closer to completing," says Achor. For the same reason marathoners increase the rate at kilometer 40, our brains release chemicals that give us more energy as we perceive getting closer to the end line. Starting your list of purposes with a blank sheet means you will lose the advantage of those accelerators.
This strategy can be used daily throughout the year. Instead of making a list of all the things you have to accomplish in a day, start with the things you've already achieved and set aside a popcorn. When your brain sees these marks, it releases the accelerators of success, putting you in a positive mentality and allowing you to increase the speed for the rest of the goals.
