Gratitude and being mindful are two things that helps us find positive in everything that is around.
I think some of the times we have to live in moment instead of seeing too much into future. Negativity affects us when we see too much into past and future. And that's where we have to learn to stay in present.
The practice of finding good in everything is really good. This along with meditation can have a lot of effects. I have seen some of the cancer patients who have survived due to practice of being positive. Most of the people these days practice being mindful.
Negative thinking happens if we are not in habit of seeing things positively. Instead we are comparing our life with other people.
Worse situations always brings out the negative things first, which gives more stress and issue more big. I would say, firstly we need to look into the situation and think, could this have been avoided or could this have been worsen than now and should not start blaming ourselves for the failure or the worse situation. And as per the old saying 'Mistakes are our teachers!- rather than dwelling on the issue. We need to recognize and think of ways for the future, where we could avoid such situations/issue. We cant change the past, We can design the future.
So on any situation/issue, if we focus on the positive scenarios , that could positively change our outlook, which in turn reduces stress and concentrate on achieving things that otherwise may not have been possible.
Some times peace is better than being Right!!!
Do you think there are easy and better ways to over come negativity within our mind and thoughts?
"It is hardest thing in the world to be good thinker without being a good self examiner"
Its better to kill our ego problem in some matters.
