Ok, you’ve started your positive journey, you’re making a conscious decision to think good thoughts and you are becoming more self-aware – the big question on your mind is: when will I feel the benefits?
We suggest extreme patience when it comes to your positive journey; it takes time to shift the negative thoughts you have encountered throughout your entire life but you will experience a period of healing in doing so. If you stay dedicated to creating a new and wonderful life for yourself, that’s exactly what you will get.
It’s totally natural to think, “When will my positive thinking pay off?” Here are some signs that it has already started:
Your journey to healing will ultimately lead to you having increased self-respect, this is because you’ll be more in-tune with yourself and what makes you happy.
If you’re suddenly feeling unhappy with the way things are and feel you are worth more than what you’re accepting – this a telling sign that you’re on the road to a better life. Many unhappy people lack boundaries, self-worth and put up with relationships that make them unhappy.
If you have noticed that you are building better boundaries for yourself and you no longer participate in doing things that aren’t good for you, it may just be that things have started changing for you.
Bad Things keep Happening
Sounds contradictory but when your positive journey commences you might notice that bad things keep happening. You will be tested on endurance, and it’s really crucial that you use these moments to put into practice the positive thinking that you have learnt.
What you’ll probably find is that you handle situations much better than before, and you’ll bounce back quicker. It will be a powerful moment when you realise that you are able to deal with any complexities that life may bring.
You want Change

Have you found lately that people seem to gravitate towards you with their problems?

Ever seen the Jim Carrey movie Liar Liar? Carrey plays a man who is unable to lie about anything. Have you found that this is happening to you these days, and are you always opting for honestly, instead of telling fibs?
