Positive thinking can add so much to your life – and now we know that positive thinking can add years to your life. When you think positive you get rid of stress and tend to live a healthier life and make better choices. If you’re naturally a negative thinker, there are ways you can change that thinking and get on the path to a life-changing way of thinking.
If you really want to begin to think positively and change your life for the better, look at the following steps you can incorporate into your own lifestyle:
1. Be responsible for your thoughts. No one can tell you what to think or controls how you react to your thinking. When you begin to take responsibility for your thoughts, you’ll face the reality of what they’re doing to or for you and be more able to change those negative thoughts.
2. Plan to think positively. So many of our thoughts come from the subconscious mind. When you plan to think positively, you won’t be as apt to take what you’re thinking as reality. Instead, you have the time and opportunity to think it over and come to the conclusion that reflects the reality of the situation.
3. Avoid negative people. Negative people can ruin your best laid plans to think positively. They can feed the fire of self-doubt and anxiety. It can sometimes be classified as a crowd-mentality, so don’t fall prey to it. Think for yourself.
4. Write down your thoughts. It’s helpful if you can see at the end of the day what your thoughts have been. For awhile, take the time to write them down. You’ll see what went wrong with your thoughts and be able to improve them.
5. Consider the repercussions. For example, if you have a deadline for an assignment and it becomes clear that you’re not going to meet it, consider what might happen. If you finish it on time, it won’t be as good as you wanted. If you take more time, it may cause other problems. Also, consider solutions. For example, you could ask for an extension to the deadline.
6. Minimise catastrophic thinking. Rather than thinking the worst about a situation, try to minimize it and lower your anxiety level by being practical about it. If you’re susceptible to those thoughts, avoid situations (such as television news) that might cause of anxious thinking.
7. Live for the moment. When you spend too much time trying to guess or analyze the future, you’ll convince yourself of failure – especially if you’ve failed in the past. If you think you’ll fail, you probably will.
Accept the reality that you can control your thoughts. You’ll become more empowered to face stressful situations in your life and to change the way you think. It will become easier to maintain a positive attitude the more you practice thinking positively.

I first suffered anxiety when I was 12 years old and real deep sadness and loneliness. I woke up one morning in a panic feeling as if a lightning bolt had been driven into my chest and it intensified during some dark times in my life when my brother Nick suddenly died in a car accident when I was 20 which caused me to spiral out of control. I contemplated suicide and really panicked when I thought about going a whole lifetime without seeing my brother. Then when I was first married, I experienced a lot more emotional turmoil when my husband turned out to be an alcoholic and I divorced him when I was 8 months pregnant, And the last time was when i suffered a nervous breakdown in 1998.
I had contemplated suicide when Nick died, during the emotional turmoil of my first marriage and now agin in 1998 when I had a nervous breakdown, This time I experienced my life falling apart in yet another way. I could see that I was dismantling my self, in order to find my true self. There were times when in deep despair I could feel my cells dying and telling me to stop this, and find my way out.
As always since my teens, I meditated as best I could between dark foreboding thoughts and almost manic highs. Panic attacks were nightly occurrences that had me fighting for my life. But each time I felt my Soul stirring inside holding me together and finally when I was ready to exit, showing me out of the maze. Once out i realised that I had been putting off helping others for too long and regardless of what was to come that is what I was intent on doing.
I didn’t care about the security of a 6 figure salary. I knew I had to heal others, not in parallel to my career as I had been doing, but instead of it. I learnt to see myself during the panic attacks from another place and the road map which was quickly filling up with new information. I couldn’t put it off any longer and I came up with my system. In 2001 I started my healing business Soul Awaken and now Anxiety Free.
