What if I told you that your thoughts are the most powerful thing in the universe?
Your thoughts directly impact how you view yourself, what you do with your life, and ultimately who you become.
Yes, that’s right.
Your thoughts can stop you from being happy, or they can help you be the happiest person in the world.
And the best part is, they are easily controlled once you know-how.
If you’re struggling with negative thoughts that keep manifesting bad things into your life, don’t worry.
I’ve got you covered.
Here are 5 simple steps to stop manifesting bad things.
How to stop manifesting bad things
1. Get rid of any negative thoughts
We all have negative thoughts from time to time, and that’s ok.
The problem is, when negative thoughts go unchecked, they tend to manifest themselves into our lives in the form of bad things.
When bad things don’t get checked, they grow to become bigger and bigger problems.
This is why it’s important to get rid of negative thoughts as soon as they arise.
The best way to eliminate any negative thoughts is by using positive affirmations.
An affirmation is simply a positive statement that you say to yourself with intent.
The power of affirmations is an extremely underrated tool for changing your thoughts and, ultimately, your life.
If you’re new to affirmations, start small by reciting one statement in the morning when you wake up and once before bed.
A few examples of positive affirmations that you can use to remove negative thoughts are:
- “I am in control of my own thoughts.”
- “My life is filled with happiness.”
- “I am grateful for every day.”
- “I have the power to stop manifesting bad things.”
2. Surround yourself with positive people
When you surround yourself with positive people, it’s easier to become a positive person.
This is because you mimic the behavior of people you spend time with.
If you surround yourself with negative people, it’s difficult not to become negative yourself.
And the same applies to positive people.
Surround yourself with positive people, and you’ll naturally become more positive.
A great way to figure out if the people in your life are positive is by asking yourself the following questions:
- Does this person push me to be better than I am?
- Does this person inspire me to strive for more in life?
- Do these people genuinely care about my well-being?
The answer to these questions should be yes.
If you answered no to any of those questions, it might be time for a change.
3. Stop focusing on the bad things that have happened
Living in the past is a dangerous thing.
We all have bad things that we experienced in the past.
Those memories can be heartbreaking, traumatic, and difficult to forget, but they should only serve as a lesson.
When you focus too much on the things that have gone wrong in your life, it’s virtually impossible to feel good about yourself.
And it’s important to feel good about yourself.
It’s what pushes you to go after your dreams instead of succumbing to the pain of your past.
Let go of the bad things that have happened to you.
Make peace with them.
Once you’ve accepted what’s happened in your past, you can focus on creating a better future.
4. Go with the flow
Have you ever heard of the saying “life is a journey, not a destination”?
Well, it’s very true.
Life is difficult.
There will be good times and bad times, but it’s how you react to those situations that define who you are as a person.
Try your best to go with the flow of life and avoid resistance at all costs.
Look on the bright side, even in the hardest of times.
Remind yourself that everything will work out eventually, even if you can’t see it right now.
By staying positive, you’re more likely to be happy, and when you’re happy, good things will happen to you.
5. Focus on being happy
Being happy is a choice, not a feeling.
You have the power to choose your mood at any given moment.
Make it a habit to make yourself happy.
The more you focus on feeling good, the easier it will be for you to do so.
A great way to feel happy is by spending time with positive people, doing what you love, and exercising.
For example, if you love to draw, set aside thirty minutes every day to do just that.
The more often you do something that makes you happy, the more positive your mindset will become.
6. Practice gratitude
So many people take things for granted.
Whether it’s your health, your family, or the roof over your head, there’s always something to be grateful for.
Make it a daily habit to list at least three things you’re grateful for.
This will open your mind to possibilities you once thought were nonexistent.
It will make you more positive, and it will make life easier for you in general.
Another reason to practice gratitude is that it’s contagious.
When you share the things you’re grateful for with other people, they’ll feel inclined to do the same, and eventually, they’ll start to see their lives in a better light.
If you want to stop manifesting bad things, it all starts within yourself.
You can’t change your life unless you change the way you think and feel.
The world is what we perceive it to be, so start perceiving it in a better light.
Your whole life depends on it.
