Negative attitudes come from negative thoughts that come from reactions to negative behavior. And around the cycle goes. Understand that none of this negative stuff is coming from God. There is nothing negative about the way he thinks or acts.
So how do you put a stop to all this nonsense? How do you get to a place where your positive attitude is what’s natural for you and not the other way around?
The good news is that there are some things you can do to help transition from the land of negativity to a much more positive place.
Five Steps On How You Can Turn Your Negative Thinking Attitude To A Positive Thinking Attitude
First, focus on what you’re thinking about.
Our negative actions and words are coming from our negative thoughts. Our body, including the mouth, has no choice but to follow wherever our mind goes.
It is possible to control our thoughts, regardless of what we’ve been led to believe. As soon as a negative thought comes into your mind, purposefully make it a point to replace it with a positive one. (2 Corinthians 10:5) At first, this may take some work, because chances are, we will probably have a lot more negative thoughts in our head than positive ones. But eventually, the ratio will reverse itself.
Second, stop letting other people’s negative attitudes influence yours.
This may mean we need to stop hanging around with people who do nothing but spout negative stuff. We can’t afford to do this when our goal is to become more positive. The negative people in our life aren’t going to like it when we stop participating in negativity. Just remember that birds of a feather really do flock together.
Third, make a list of all the areas in your life that you want to change.
List all your negative attitudes too. If you can’t think of things to put on your list, just ask your family. I’ll bet they’ll help you make it a really long list!
Fourth, take some time to write strong, life-giving, positive affirmation statements.
Make a commitment to read those statements out loud every day. Enjoy how great they make you feel. Know in your heart that you’re making progress, even if you can’t see it just yet. Just keep affirming the positive.
Lastly, take time to pray about this.
You can’t change by yourself. But you can spend time with the One who is able to help. Do what you can, and let God do the rest. It really is that simple.
This process will change how we think and that’s the real key to changing how we act. Remember, the body will follow wherever the mind goes. There is no way to separate the two, so we might as well “program in” what we want, instead of randomly leaving it to chance.
Just know that God’s version of a right attitude contains nothing negative. And if we want God’s best for our life, it starts with right thoughts — his thoughts to be exact.
