Positive Thinking and Self Worth
We know the importance of positive thinking and self worth but for the most part we never really allow ourselves to make a real judgment of ourselves as we really are.
If we were to get more in tune ourselves, our lives would absolutely become much more fruitful and productive.
Self-belief and the realization of self-worth is the basic step towards acquiring positive thinking with anything. Positive thinking doesn’t arrive without being confident about yourself initially.
Many individuals believe they are limited in their potential. That’s the way we have been disciplined to think. By our parents, our teachers, our bosses, and so forth. Everybody has told us about a set structure our entire lives.
But what does that ‘set structure’ really involve?
For many individuals, it refers to what is acknowledged, what is seen and what is already accomplished. We’re told to live inside that set structure. We’re told we can’t change or go beyond that.
And that’s how come, when we begin early on in life, we don’t accomplish anything else but simply emulating others. Our goals are merely what others have already accomplished.
Our generation, being born in the 60’s and all the generations before never had goals when we were young about making a scientific find?
Nobody had ever told us that we could bring a fresh invention into the world and make that into a multibillion dollar endeavor?
The great thing about this new generation is that they are setting goals that are on the far side of the accomplishments that other people have already made.
They are going beyond the established set structure while individuals around us continue to coerce us to remain inside it.
As children we were naturally curious about everything around us, but as we mature this innate curiousness fades away. But that’s truly damaging to human progress.
If the excellent discoverers and inventors had all left their wonders in their childhood, they would not have made the world what it is today.
Train Your Brain For Positive Thinking
Where is all this guiding us? This is pertinent to us, as it’s the way we train our brains that limits our imaginations. When we make our visions in life, we remain inside the ‘set structure’ we don’t presume to think beyond that.
For us, only those matters that are accomplishable are those that others have already accomplished. But hasn’t history demonstrated again and again that people have broken the set structures of being average and gone beyond?
Thus, the term ‘accomplishable’ is rather relative. But if we were to apply that in a general context, ‘accomplishable’ would mean ‘unlimited’. We shouldn’t restrict our thoughts.
Simply because somebody else hasn’t accomplished something yet, it doesn’t mean that we won’t be able to accomplish it.
We must bear that in mind when are building our visions in life. Nothing is inconceivable for the human brain; nothing is unachievable.
People tell us not to think beyond our means as we won’t be able to accomplish those things and we’re simply wasting our time. But, should we repress our passion on account of that?
This is where we have to understand the difference between passionate believing and rational believing.
When we believe passionately about something, we’re attempting to put our innermost desires out in the front. We aren’t considering the limitations.
Rational believing, though it may seem the suitable way to think in the world we live in, is constrictive. It confines us to what others have accomplished and we merely follow in their steps.
If we wish to become a positive thinker, we have to let our emotions move ahead of us and believe anything is possible.
