|Can positive thinking can be developed into a habit?
Absolutely. Anything can be developed into a habit and positive thinking is certainly habit forming.
Absolutely. Positive thinking is hard initially, but once the client starts to see the rewards, it's amazing how they can change their outlook on their health. We are there for our clients every step of the way through the beginning, when it's the toughest to maintain the workout schedule.
YES it can but not just by being the happy guy all the time. It's possible if you feel miserable to shift concience into the NOw and feel great again. It's up to You. You are not your MIND. Your mind is just addicted to information and labeling and loves to live in the PAST or the FUTURE. But after all there is only the NOW and in the NOW there are no problems. So maybe it's better to say; Postive felling instead of thinking and using the mind.
Yes, and the goal is realistic optimism.
Undoubtedly. I have done it.
certainly. I'm the living prove of it. Above positive thinking I prefer 'constructive thinking', to look for the treasure in the trash.
Habits can be changed. Bad habits cannot be stopped only changed into good habits.
Negative thinking is a bad habit and can be changed into the better habit of positive thinking.
If you do anything long enough then you can develop it into a habit.
When people swear most times they are unaware of it. It started as a filler word when as a child or adolescent the person was struggling for a word. Without knowing it the filler word became a habit for the words that were hard to find.
Positive thinking starts with taking a look in the mirror and liking what you see.
To achieve excellence, one must get into the habit of thinking positively. Positive thinking leads to positive action which almost always yield positive results. I must defer to Aristotle here:
"Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit."
The short answer would be, "Certainly!" As a Christian Life Coach, I believe this wholeheartedly.
Anything can be developed into a habit with enough practice.
Positive thinking - the sense of I can try this, try this, and keep trying this, can be developed into a discipline just as easy as how you shave your face (for males, right side or left?) or any other behavior.
The research behind some behavior by people like Angela Duckworth, for example, is pretty suggestive that perseverance - another way to label positive thinking - can be formed and developed,
The techniques we teach give the client a choice that you would not have had previously. We anchor positive thinking to keep you motivated but you as the individual have the empowered choice
Absolutely. The mind really is a powerful thing. An easy example of the top of my head is visualisation, where an athlete pictures in their mind's eye their success, how they will move, or a routine. It has been proven that visualisation in many cases provided equal if not better results than actual physical practice.
Training our thinking to focus on certain aspects of experience, react to challenges in certain ways and manage stressful events are well within everyone's ability.
Yes, of course. It requires more than rose colored glasses though.
There is no doubt about this one; YES!
It is worth highlighting that the majority of us in our apparent developed world are more susceptible to negative tendencies than positive ones.
From a very early age we are thrown No and No and Don't and Can't again and again!
So turning that mindset around requires education, proof of concept and habit forming principles...
The good news is that we are born with the positive module deep in our psyche; it's what got us off our hands and knees to totter upright before choosing to run... now there's some wonderful positive and courageous thinking needed to achieve that!
This is the essence of my first book 'Little Book of Self Empowerment'.
