5 Ways To Develop Positive Thinking
When it comes right down to it positive thinking and a winning attitude are big factors in your successful Avon business.
Our attitudes really are everything.
When we’re not feeling great about our lives or how the day is going, everything can seem to go wrong.
The problem is life isn’t a steady thing. And the same is true for your Avon business. In fact, your Avon business is more like a roller coaster.
You might have one really good day followed by another equally bad.
With so many things outside of your control from the weather to politics, it might seem impossible to ever truly feel good about anything.
The answer lies in your thinking.
By being able to think positively, you will find your entire outlook changes.
How Do You Develop The Habit Of Positive Thinking?
Positive thinking can be achieved through a few different techniques that have been proven effective, such as positive self-talk and positive imagery.
Here are some tips to get you started that can help you train your brain how to think positively.
The obvious answer is to use more positive words.
Instead of saying something negative, either out loud or in your head, try to find a better way to say things.
For example, your business isn’t grueling so much as it might have interesting challenges.
While this might seem artificial and forced at first, the more you work to rephrase things, the easier it will be to find a more positive spin.
How many times have you talked about ‘having’ to do something?
This alone has a negative connotation, as though you’re being forced into something you don’t want to do.
Instead, try to drop the word ‘have’ in this context and try inserting ‘get’ instead.
You don’t have to go out prospecting. You get to do it.
Hear the difference?
This is how you change a task into an opportunity.
Sure, disasters are going to happen.
Not everything you attempt is going to turn out exactly the way you’d like it to.
Rather than focus on the disaster, try changing your focus.
It might be time to shift to a slightly different method or goal.
It’s so hard to be positive when you’re absolutely exhausted and feeling like you’re in over your head.
Sometimes the best way to cultivate better self-talk is to cut yourself some slack and take a break.
Things will look brighter when you can come back refreshed.
Just don’t let that break last too long. Your Avon business won’t build itself. 🙂
Being positive should never be about closing your eyes to tragedy or injustice.
Bad things are going to happen in the world. People are going to say no to your offers.
But someone with a positive attitude will be able to look beyond the tragedy to the next step.
Positivity finds solutions where others only see problems.
Here is the birth of activism and change.
How To Think Positive When Everything Is Going Wrong
Trying to be positive when you’re grieving or experiencing other serious distress, or when you can’t seem to get your business off the ground, can seem impossible.
During these times, it’s important to take the pressure off of yourself to find the silver lining.
Instead, channel that energy into getting support from others.
Positive thinking isn’t about burying every negative thought or emotion you have or avoiding difficult feelings.
The lowest points in our lives are often the ones that motivate us to move on and make positive changes.
When going through such a time, try to see yourself as if you were a good friend in need of comfort and sound advice.
What would you say to her?
You’d likely acknowledge her feelings and remind her she has every right to feel sad or angry in her situation, and then offer support with a gentle reminder that things will get better.
You won’t be able to undo years of pessimism and negative thoughts overnight, but with some practice, you can learn how to approach things with a more positive outlook.
And as you get better and better at developing that positive thinking, you’ll find your Avon business gets better and better right along with it.
