UPSC exam is a journey which is very difficult and should be started with full confidence. I firmly believe that efforts which are being put with positive thoughts result in a positive outcome. So, to get success in UPSC exam, make positive mindset. This article will help you at every step of your preparation for UPSC.
Positive Thoughts Vs Negative Thoughts
Thoughts certainly do have great power. Every thought that’s ever crossed your mind has its own wavelength. Depending on the frequency of thoughts you put out, the universe will give you an answer, like two magnets slowly growing closer & closer. Good & positive thoughts create positive vibrations that affect human beings for their welfare. Similarly, unhealthy, bad & negative thoughts emit negative vibrations that cause harm & damage to human beings. The French revolution was brought about by the thoughts relating to liberty, equality & fraternity. Great thinkers like Plato, Aristotle, Karl Marx, and M.K.Gandhi revolutionized the world even after them by their powerful positive thoughts. Only it is essential that we should have positive thinking. We must channelize our thoughts in positive way because the energy we put into the universe will dictate the world around us.
Positive Thoughts give Positive Results
We all have felt that we feel comfortable in the presence of some people & may feel awkward in the presence of others. Vibrations emitted by our mind vary with nature of our thoughts i.e., negative thoughts emit negative vibrations & affect those all around. In the same way our positive thoughts emit positive vibration and people around us feel comfortable.We need to change our thoughts, which can bring change in the very outlook towards life.
The fact is that thinking capacity of man has made him supreme among all living beings. We only need to make our thoughts positive & systematic. The systematic thought is the most significant factor behind all the major changes & the revolutions which have taken place in the world till now. It was the unfathomable and immeasurable power of thoughts only when Russian Revolution took place. Karl Marx was not alive. In the same way, Martin Luther King Jr. did not meet Gandhi Ji but he got influenced by ‘My Experiments with Truth’.
We are hearing from our childhood ‘As you think, so you become.’ So let us beware of our thoughts, negative thoughts erode our energy & positive thoughts provide us enlightenment. Our thought matters. Our positive thoughts will create our feelings, our positive feelings will create our actions, and our positive actions will create our life positive. They are all interconnected.
Today we will try to unfold steps to start activating the positive thoughts, right now.
Can we have positive thinking in all circumstances? Can it be practiced?
Yes. here, we are giving few steps to follow which will make us habitual positive thinker.
Step-1 of Journey Towards Positive Thoughts
Make Clear Wishlist: You don’t need to wait for new year eve to take the resolution. Write down your wish right now. You start from today itself. Ask yourself: By the time next year, what would you have liked to achieve? The more specific you would be the better. Give a concrete shape to your wish i.e. vague or abstract thoughts like ‘I want to achieve something’ will not be fruitful. Believe me whatever you will think daily, you will get in revert. So, think specific.
Step-2 of Journey Towards Positive Thoughts
Start Showing ‘gratitude’: Make a change in your attitude. Smile more. Throw away all negative feedback what you have been cluttering till now. Unfollow negative people on social media. Make a list of all small things which make you happy such as funny things your siblings say, hot stuffed Parathas your mum serves, chirping of birds in your balcony. Read this list of small but positive things of your life on the daily basis and be grateful to God for giving these moments. This will serve as a filter and will help you to unlock your positive vibes. This filter allows us to see how good things are and opens up our minds to possibility. Stop wasting your time on people who don’t deserve your precious energy.Because you have to develop positive thoughts.
Step-3 of Journey Towards Positive Thoughts
Complaining Disallows Improvement:The mistake a lot of us make is that we focus on what we don’t want. It is natural that by knowing what we do not want, we are able to clarify what we do want; and is nothing wrong with identifying a problem before beginning to look for a solution. But many people, over time, become problem oriented rather than solution oriented. So tell the story you want to live and you will eventually live it. For ex. Instead of saying “I am tired of being failed” say “I am preparing enough to qualify exam”. Carefully observe the hairline difference in the above-mentioned statements. If you persevere, you will attract different results too. Create positive statements. Repeat them every morning. Save them as random alarms on your phone to appear throughout the day. You can’t afford to waste your time in complaining about the shortage of time, money or resources. You have to move forward.Positive thinking will give positive results.
Step-4 of Journey Towards Positive Thoughts
People are not bad, Circumstance forces them to be:Everyone in this world has few good qualities, focus on those good qualities. Instead of feeling irritated by remembering their wrong deeds, try to recall their positive responses. When you focus on good, you welcome more good. Try focusing on only positive and be vocal about it for 24 hours. See how people respond!When we speak positive things about others,we get positive remarks for us also. Daily make at least one person of your surroundings happy by giving positive feedback to him.
Step-5 of Journey Towards Positive Thoughts
Dream & Images: Images enable us to activate our true longings. In you room, have a chart with your dream chair and office. It will help you pinpoint your goals. Your dream should be in front of your eyes. Picture and images of your dream should be visible every time. Pictures make our determination stronger.It will create positive thoughts related to your dream and result will come positive.
Step-6 of Journey Towards Positive Thoughts
Start Working: All of the above would lead you to take action. Make a commitment to take one action every single day that will drive you towards your goals and vision. If you want to be always positive, start doing one positive action daily. Thoughts should lead actions. I am not writing about day dreaming here. This is all about positive thinking. Leave all depression or fear of failure. Make your attempt for success. Action is must.But , this action must be with confidence.
Conclusion: Do remember these words of Swami Vivekananda, “Thoughts are our chief motivating force. Fill your mind with healthy and higher thoughts, as thoughts are founders of our character, which ultimately form our destiny.”
