Switching what follows “I am” will certainly change your attitude and may very well change that upcoming failure to success.
It’s all about a positive attitude.
Having a positive attitude and speaking in positive terms about a situation – no matter how bad it looks – is the flip side of that skateboard heading down the hill. Putting together a positive mental reaction to a situation and then converting it into a positive statement can actually “trick your brain” out of the depression.
Positive statements tell your brain that whatever is going on isn’t going to be permanent and you give it permission to adopt a more positive mindset.
The next time you’re going through a tough time or having a tough day, stop and take a deep breath before you engage your mouth. Think quickly about how you’re feeling and put the most positive spin you can on it. Then you can engage your mouth.
For example, if some things are going the wrong way and someone asks, “How are you doing?” take a deep breath and instead of that first thought that popped in your head, try something like, “Today is a tough day, but I’ll be on top of it tomorrow.” And make sure to smile after you say that.
Smile. Really, smile.
Smiling actually releases dopamine in the brain, it sets off the pleasure centers and the next thing you know, you feel better.
