The 'Power of Positive Thinking' By Namratha Shetty

Who doesn’t want to live a happy live? But the fact is, its upto us to live a happy life. It starts with being positive. Being positive is easier said than done. And trust me its absolutely possible. We all have fast paced life with no time for self; we often slip into a negative thought now and then, particularly when we’re tired or having a rough day. 

It becomes dangerous when it outweighs the positive, when we find ourselves focusing on things we can’t do , not good at or even tell ourselves we are not capable of. These negative thoughts bring us down and stop us from succeeding greater risk is when it becomes a habit to think negative which can lead us to miss out on great experiences and opportunities in life.  
There came a time when this happened to me, however I luckily stopped to think that I have to change. So what did I do??
Remember  “Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you'll start having positive results." Here are a few things I did to become more positive…………. Try them! 
Smile: It really does help change your mood and relieve stress. I also felt lighter because it takes fewer muscles to smile than to frown. ☺
Be around Positive People: Associate with people who bring something of value into your life. Avoid people who sap your energy and enthusiasm. 
Change your thoughts from negative to positive: This is the most important one. Change the negative thought to positive. Refuse to participate in negative inner dialogues. It's just a waste of time and energy. Don't allow disappointments, difficulties and obstacles affect your moods and state of mind. Refuse and reject negative thinking. Either replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts, or engage yourself in some activity that will divert your attention from the negative thoughts. Don't allow what people think and say affect your mind and mood.
Help someone: Take the focus away from you and do something nice for another person. I tutored my maids daughter. Trust me it feels great to help someone who really needs your help.
Remember that no one is perfect. “Its OK” is the word: It’s easy to dwell on our mistakes. The next time things are not going the way they should. Just say ALL IS WELL and move on. Relax and Smile. Have faith in yourself and in your abilities
Stop watching TV soaps:  Yes I really said that, I personally feel that the sad soaps make us negative.  Instead watch something that is funny or spend quality time with friends and family.
Be Nice: Say positive things about yourself and about other people. Compliment people when you feel they deserve it.
Me time: Spend at least 5 mins of Me time. This is just your time to thing back on the activities of the day and cheers things that went well. Each accomplished goal, no matter how small it might be, will bring you more confidence, self-esteem and positive thinking.
By implementing these simple steps I am a happier person and so is my family, So let all give it a try and live a happy and content life!!
