One of the greatest lessons I have learned through the process of building and growing my own profitable independent physiatry practice is that energy is transferable. And yes, you can energize your life with positive thinking. Mindset and positive thinking are absolutely important on this journey. Have you ever really opened your mind to the valuable impact that positive thinking can have on your day-to-day life?

When you develop a truly positive mindset, you set yourself up for a happier and more fulfilling life. With a stressful and hectic pace of our lives today, a more joyful existence is certain to be a welcomed change. It might take some practice to change your negative thought patterns into positive ideas that serve you better, but you can do it. I’m going to give you some steps and strategies to invigorate your life every day:

1. Tell yourself you can do it. Sometimes a simple thought that you repeat over and over again can get you through a grueling and challenging experience. For example, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it is a great mantra to keep you striving for the excellence you deserve.

2. Think of yourself as strong. When you’re engaging in physical activity, think to yourself: I am strong. I can do anything. I can finish this job because of my strength.

3.  Write what’s good about you. Even though it may feel a bit strange to do it, get a pen and paper and start listing your positive attributes. Do some bragging about yourself.

4. Acknowledge that you will do something. Rather than being disappointed about something you didn’t do well, value will work to achieve it in the future. Use the words: I am. Notice that you’re not saying, “I’m going to try,” or, “I might give it a go.” You’re stating “I am following through.” It’s positive and affirmative. Practice thinking and speaking in these terms. The more definite you can be, the more likely your life will advance in positive ways.

5. Jog around the block. How long has it been since you’ve used your body’s core to walk fast, job, or run? You’ll feel so invigorated and accomplished when you do get it done. Of course, take care of your body’s health and use your doctor’s advice on exercise before attempting this one. If you can’t jog for a really long time, jog while you’re counting to 15 under your breath. Then walk for a couple minutes before jogging again for another 15. When you’re done, you’ll feel spent in a positive way, because you’re really doing something.

6. Set aside time each day to work toward your most important goal. No matter what your goal is, you’ll feel psyched if you do one thing to work toward it every single day. It will give you a positive lift. Try it and see. For example, if your goal is to get a new job, get a spiral notebook and jot down each day, with the day and time, what you did to move toward getting that job. Maybe you made a call, maybe you established a contact on the Internet, maybe you reached out to a headhunter on email; just do one thing every day to achieve your goal.

7. Have a sense of humor. If you’ve ordered a new bed and it doesn’t fit in your room when the delivery guy brings it, try to laugh about it. Recognize it’s not an unsolvable issue. It’s not the end of the world. You can return the bed and shop for another one. Smile and say that tomorrow is a new day to get it right.

8. Tell yourself you can handle if something doesn’t work out. Positive thinking means you’ll land on your feet regardless of what happens. You’ll get through it. When you truly notice and live life like you believe it, you’ll be one of the most positive people on the planet. 

When you begin to refocus your life toward positivity, you’ll discover a passion for life you’ve never before experienced. You’ll bring vigor to your life each day through practicing these positive methods and mantras.
