good thoughts for the day

If you came to this site for positive quotes written by other people, sorry you won’t find them here. I could give you a bunch of quotes just like any other quotes site. But rather, I will show you how to develop a positive state of mind that can bring you good thoughts for the day. Today and every day.

It’s not necessary to have a good state of mind to live your life. Unless that is, you want to live it well. Your thoughts effect your moods, and body for that matter. They subconsciously determine what kind of day you’re going to have.

It’s easy to fall into an emotional decay. You may hear some bad news, have a few problems at work, and you can just sense your emotional energy draining. This in turn leads to a negative outlook. From here forward, you don’t even notice the good things, it all seems bad.

I remember when I was working at a corporate job, I would usually go to work filled with negative thoughts. It was like “what else is going to go wrong today?” state of mind. Guess what? Things would surely go wrong. This went on for a while, and it was just making me sick…

One day, I decided to experiment by changing my outlook. I thought, what would happen if I went to work full of optimism and good thoughts. That morning I told myself that I would have a great day, and I would be able to handle anything that came at me.

It worked. Despite a few minor issues that I was able to resolve, the day went great! This in turn helped me to reinforce the positive outlook for the following day. The analogy here is one of a snowball. Your thoughts, whether positive or negative will accumulate, gaining mass and momentum. It’s your choice, which snowball you decide to build.

Good Thoughts Tips

Visualization

Believe that good things will happen today. Think good, happy thoughts that will in fact clear the way for positive changes to come into your life. Day to day, everyday. Visualization is a powerful tool to eliminate negative influences from your life. Mentally, see yourself happy healthy and at peace. Your thoughts will infuse positive energy into everything you do.

Meditation

For me, meditation works wonders. It resets my emotions by clearing the mind. It centers, and calms me down. No wonder it’s been used for thousands of years by people all over the world. If nothing else, meditation will give you an opportunity to spend some quality quiet time alone by yourself.

Reinforcement

Here is a great tip for getting positive reinforcement at the beginning of your day. On a piece of paper, start writing down all the thoughts that come into your mind for a few minutes. Once you’re done, go through the list and cross out any negative thoughts you may have written down. This can be done every day to reinforce your positive thinking and give you some insight into your state of mind.

Association

No matter how powerful your positive thoughts are, being surrounded by a negative environment will make things harder. That’s why positive associations are so important. Try to surround yourself with positive, like minded people. At least one person will make a big difference. Your combined positive energy will be much stronger united, then individually.

In Conclusion

Above are some of the ways to help you develop good, positive attitude and happy thoughts for the day. You may find other ways that work well for you. I encourage you not to give in to despair, no matter how difficult today may seem. You may not realize it this moment, but the Higher Power has a plan for you. Don’t give up.

Live well. Vlad

    Hello Vlad,

    I’ve been reading your articles and I find them very inspiring. How simple life actually is but how complicated we make them, isn’t it? Thanks for sharing.

      Hi Jane,
      Thank you very much for stoping by and reading. I’m glad that I was able to share and offer you some inspiration!

      I think the point you bring up, really summarizes this site. Indeed, life was meant to be lived simply. People are the ones who invent many of their own complications.

      So let’s try to make it uncomplicated together!

      Take care, Vlad
