Everything is positive. If you do not believe something is positive, then you simply haven’t found the right viewpoint yet. It’s not the thing itself that is negative, although there are negative people and situations, it is you allowing that person or situation to negatively impact you.
Suffering is unavoidable and is almost always necessary for growth. The hardest times of our lives may seem overwhelmingly negative. However, if you were to take a moment to step back and ask, “how does this help me grow?”, you would find that although the situation seemed negative at first glance, it was ultimately positive because it pushed for your growth. Remember, its not the situation, its how you react to it.
Maintain your positive mindset and guard it from negativity. You must persist in your work to overcome life’s challenges. For if you do not, you will not grow. You will fall into a negative mindset and doing so you give up your power and allow the person or situation to continue negatively impacting your life. You must transmute it.
Say, for instance, you believe a certain person is negatively impacting your life. You think and think about this person, your negative thoughts arouse negative emotions, and these negative thoughts and emotions lead to negative actions. You start imagining negative scenarios and conversations with this person, and by doing so you are attracting negative energy towards the both of you. This is all you have created in your mind, and because of this negativity is all that will find you. By thinking and acting negatively, you prove that your reaction to the problem is the problem. You must transmute those thoughts and feelings into positive ones. Polarize to the positive and ask yourself how this person is pushing for your growth. Visualize the better solution and then act to create it. This is why you must guard your positive mindset because as soon as you fall into a negative mindset, you will no longer be able to see the abundance of opportunities to create positive changes in your life.
Every cloud has a silver lining. The clouds may seem dark, but it is necessary for the clouds water the seeds of thought. If you remain positive, eventually the light shines through the clouds and the seeds of thought you have planted will begin to sprout. Did you plant a thought that will bear fruit or a weed of a thought that only spreads and kills off your other good thoughts? Keep the garden of your mind well maintained. Pull out the weeds. Don’t permit them to grow in your scared garden of thought. Then water your positive plants of thought with the same positive thoughts it took to plant them. Finally, by action, you may experience the fruits of your efforts.
A fews months ago at the sushi restaurant I work at, I was in a horribly negative mindset. I was stressed and overworked. My boss is also the head chef and it was clear to me that he no longer wanted to work and it was reflected in his efforts. I had to do everything. I was angry at him for making me pick up his slack when he was absorbing most of the reward. Soon my own work was being affected, my focus was so directed at my distain for my boss, I didn’t see how negatively my work was being impacted by it. Business was doing bad and became slower and slower.
I couldn’t believe the situation I was in. I am an alchemist, a guardian of positivity, I don’t allow my world to suffer negativity; how did this happen to me? So I stopped and asked myself ,”why?”. I found no answer but to say “fuck it”. I chose to not give a fuck about what my boss was doing. I would remain positive and do my best at my job regardless of whether or not that meant me working harder then I thought I should. I was going to do my best and give the customer the best experience possible. I decided my boss’ work ethic is a direct reflection of his inner world and I should not let it negatively impact my own. After deciding to remain positive and persist, I continued about my work with a renewed energy.
Shortly after adapting this new positive mindset, I began to see the powerful influence it had on my world. I became better, faster, more efficient. The attitude of my coworkers toward me changed. They saw me as more of a leader and their trust in me grew. The customers were happier and business started picking up again. By choosing not to let my boss’ actions affect me, I grew as a chef and there I found the answer to my, “why?”. I persisted in my mindset and my work became fun and challenging once again, and on top of it all, I received a raise after only a few weeks of fostering my positive mindset.
By becoming aware of how your positive and negative thoughts effect your outer world, you can choose to vibrate on a positive frequency of thought whenever you please. It is a challenging process which you must expect opposition on, and which you must practice your entire life. However, don’t allow the challenge to discourage you, for the longer you persist, the easier the process becomes. Remember, all is positive.
