It is human nature to think negative about things before you can think positive. Remember the day when you were expecting a ‘No’ from the interviewer and you got a ‘No’? Remember the day when you were so excited about a family function and all went well, exactly the way you imagined? You have always listened people saying that we should always think positive. Positive thinking paves a path to success. It can actually make you achieve what you always wished for. A lot of things can be done to train your mind to always think positive. Here are some ways-
1. Push out negative thoughts-
The very first thing you need to do is pushing out negative thoughts to give space to positive thoughts. Do not let negativity let you feel down about anything. Believe on your skills and have confidence that you can do what you aspire for.
2. Use positive words-
While describing your goals to yourself use only positive words. Do not use the words like “I can’t”. By using negative words you might convince yourself to the truth that you cannot actually do it. Always tell yourself that you can do it even if it is tough to do.
3. Direct your thoughts-
Whenever you start feeling low, direct your mind towards a positive thing. It can be a thing which is going good in your life. Give yourself a feedback of what actually went wrong. Thinking positive does not mean that you have to think positive about your pains and sorrows too. Analyse them closely and try to direct them towards happiness.

4. Forgive yourself-
Think about what went wrong in past days but don’t keep blaming yourself. It is important to forgive yourself for the bad you have done in your past life.
5. Be grateful towards good things- Do not think about only bad things you are facing in your life. Be grateful towards the things you have bestowed with. Do not ruin them.
