Shifting Your Outlook on Life – Baptiste Institute

(Read Time: 1.5 Minutes)

When it comes to creating positive change in our lives and improving our outlook on the world, it can be a challenge. 

We often find ourselves stuck in a cycle of negativity and complaining that nothing is going right… 

It’s easy to get bogged down by this negative energy and project it onto those around us, the state of the world, and our own prospects for the future. 

To shift this perspective and start thinking more optimistically, we must take certain steps that can help put us in control of our own reality.

The first step to getting out of a negative mindset is to stop complaining. 

Complaining is just focusing on the things that are wrong rather than all the amazing things that are going right in life. 

As long as we continue to complain, we will never see the good parts of life or recognize the opportunities available to us! 

Instead, try reframing your thoughts about situations you’re dealing with by listing at least three positive things about it instead of only focusing on what’s wrong. 

The next step is recognizing and replacing any negative beliefs you may have about yourself or your life situations. 

Our beliefs dictate how we think and act, so if they’re negative we will be stuck in a downward spiral of unhappiness and pessimism. 

Take some time to sit down with yourself and list out all your beliefs about yourself – both positive and negative – then work on replacing any negative beliefs with something more empowering or helpful. 

Finally, take action towards achieving your goals – no matter how small! 

Positive change won’t happen overnight, but if you take small steps every day toward achieving what you want, eventually you’ll get there! 

Maybe today that means doing five minutes of research into something you’ve been wanting to learn more about, or maybe it means spending an afternoon reconnecting with nature… whatever it is, do something that will make a difference in your day-to-day life over time. 

By taking these steps each day – stopping complaints, replacing our beliefs with positivity, and taking action toward our goals – we can slowly steer ourselves onto a more optimistic path filled with hope for the future. 

Life is full of surprises and obstacles but when we face them head-on with an open mind and heart anything becomes possible!
