positive thoughts applied positive psychologyKey Ways that Positive Affirmations Change Lives for the Better – Applied Positive Psychology

The way in which you think about yourself greatly influences how you live your own life. If you have constantly put yourself down, you negatively impact your own self-esteem and the way that you engage with others.

Alternatively, when you adopt positive thinking about who you are as a person, you pave the way for a new future and a new way of interacting with others. When you are serious about improving the way you live, act, and believe, you should learn the five key ways that positive affirmations can manifest themselves in your everyday life.

Applied Positive Psychology

Here are the 5 ways positive affirmations manifest in life – applied positive psychology:

1. Confidence

Positive affirmations help give you new confidence about yourself and your life. When you believe that you are a good person and worthy of respect and love, you feel more confident about not only yourself but also about the impact that you make every day.

You may be more upbeat when speaking to others and exhibit more genuine emotions toward friends, family members, and even strangers. You also may seek out interactions instead of hiding from them entirely. This newfound confidence may even allow you to make new friends or perhaps establish more meaningful and productive romantic relationships.

2. Better Decision Making

When you positively affirm what you believe about yourself and your everyday life, you will begin making better decisions. When you thought negatively, you may have had little regard for your own happiness and well-being.

However, when you welcome and accept positive affirmations, you may take the time to think things through and make choices that are in your own best interests. You may see the wisdom in advocating for yourself and what is best for your future. You also may do so without second guessing yourself or feeling guilty about putting yourself first for once.

3. New Friendships

Positive affirmations also manifest themselves in the forging of new friendships. When you think of yourself in a positive light, you realize that you are worthy of friends who have the highest level of affection and respect for you. You want to be around people who will treat you well and reaffirm the belief that you are a good and worthy person.

Forging new friendships can be vital to changing the manner in which you live your life. By getting rid of bad influences, you pave the way for making your own future better and avoiding thought processes that contributed to self-loathing and negative behavior in the past. Your new friends will become more valuable and positive assets to you and your life going forward.

4. Re-evaluation of Family Ties

The old adage says that you can pick your friends but not your family. In reality, you do have some power over to what degree you associate with family members who may be a bad influence on you.

If you have relatives that put you down or take advantage of you, it is not out of the question to reevaluate how much time you want to spend with them. The positive affirmations that you adopt for your life give you the power and the confidence to rethink those relationships and adjust them accordingly.

5. Mentoring Opportunities

Finally, positive affirmations can manifest themselves in your life by giving you the opportunity to become a mentor to someone else. Overcoming your own self-loathing, doubt, and negativity gives you the experience you need to understand where others in your former position are coming from and in what direction they need to go to change their own lives.

As with many people in your situation who have forged new paths for the future, you have valuable insight that even the most skilled and highly trained therapist or counselor does not possess. Who better to mentor someone down on his or her luck than you?

Seeing the positive impact you make on someone’s life likewise can be a manifestation of positive affirmations in your own. As you rebuild your own future, you should welcome the chance to pay forward what you have learned about why positive affirmations are vital to your everyday life.

Your point of view plays a key role in the way you act, believe, and live. Develop a routine that incorporates positive affirmations and you will begin to see these five benefits manifest themselves in your life.

Positive Affirmations To Appreciate Men

appreciate menToday it’s the celebration called “Dragobete” in my country. To celebrate this day I decided to write an article with positive affirmations to appreciate men.

Dragobete is a traditional Romanian holiday celebrated on February 24. Dragobete was the son of Baba Dochia, which stands for the main character in the pagan myth related to spring arrival and the end of the harsh winter. Due to his endless kindness, he was chosen – according to some sources, by Virgin Mary – to be the Guardian of Love. The day is particularly known as “the day when the birds are betrothed”. It is around this time that the birds begin to build their nests and mate. On this day, considered locally the first day of spring, boys and girls gather vernal flowers and sing together. Those who take part in Dragobete customs are supposed to be protected from illness, especially fevers, for the rest of the year. If the weather allows, girls and boys pick snowdrops or other early spring plants for the person they are courting. In the countryside, there is an old tradition with girls and boys going into the woods to pick flowers. When they return home, the traditions says that boys were running after girls to kiss them. If the girl liked the boy she lets him kiss her. There is a saying in Romania that makes a lot of sense regarding this: “Dragobete kisses the girls”.

Opportunity for joy and well-being, Dragobetele is one of the most beautiful ancient customs of the Romanian people. It is also mandatory that Dragobete men be in cordial relations with females. Men are not allowed to annoy women nor to engage in a quarrel, otherwise, they will have an unlucky spring and a year not favorable. In general, both boys and girls have a duty to rejoice in this day so that they can enjoy the love with the opposite sex the entire year. I write this article with positive affirmations to appreciate men with the intention to enjoy Love with the opposite sex, men in my case, the entire year. Therefore here are the positive affirmations to appreciate men that I thought and that I share with you.

Positive Affirmations To Appreciate Men

I appreciate my father from all my heart. I appreciate my father for conceiving me and providing for me in so many ways, so many years. Thank you, father.

I appreciate my brother with all the Love I am capable of. I appreciate my brother for the joy he brought into my life, so many years, in so many moments. Brother thank you for being the person that makes me laugh the most in this life. You made me laugh so many times, healing my soul and therefore also healing my body.

I appreciate all men that live today on the Planet Earth. I appreciate all men that have ever lived from the beginning of time and until now. Thank you for your presence, work, efforts, and energy. You are Loved. You are all Loved.

As Rori Raye says and I agree with her statement:

“The truth is  – men are loyal, brave and strong. Men have a tremendous capacity to love, commit, nurture, cherish, understand, support and be there for us.”

I thank you for your thinking. I thank you for your strength. I respect you for your thinking. I respect you for your strength.

I appreciate all men that ever lived and the ones that are alive now, for the time and efforts they put in handling things and cherishing the feelings of the people around them.

I respect the masculine energy of a man for the amazing ability to organize, figure things out, achieving things, winning victories.

I appreciate and respect all the actions of men that they did, do and will do.

I send gratitude into the Universe for all the battles that every man fought in. I respect men for all the battles that they took, take or will take in the future.

It is said that as a woman you should welcome a man as if he was in a war the entire day. It is said that a man feels every day like he is in a war, he feels like he is in a constant battle. From this point of view, the woman should welcome the man like the Sunshine and show him that there is Light, Ease and Joy, besides war, battles, and struggle.

Therefore I send from my heart appreciation and gratitude for all the wars that men fought in. I send from my heart Light and Ease for all the battles and struggle that all men have gone, are going and will go through.

I forgive masculine energy for everything. I forgive masculine energy for every situation where it was considered or believed that it was hurting the feminine energy. There is much Love between the two. We love each other dearly.

Dear man, I really appreciate you. Thank you for listening so many times to me. Thank you for making me feel loved in so many moments. Thank you for being my protector. Thank you for being my provider. Thank you for taking good care of me. Thank you for making me happy. Thank you for making me laugh so many times.

Dear man, you are full of energy. You are overflowing with joy. You can achieve greatness. You can win your victory. Your body is healthy. Your mind is brilliant. Your soul is tranquil. I believe you can do anything. Everything that is happening now is happening for your ultimate goal. You love and accept yourself for who you are. You forgive those who have harmed you in the past and detach peacefully from them. Your ability to conquer your challenges is limitless. Your potential to succeed is infinite.

I am proud of you. I respect, trust, support and appreciate you. You are blessed.

It is my strong belief that men make our life more beautiful, more alive, more full. Men bring more fullness into our lives.

How To Attract True Love Through Positive Thoughts

Positive Words Research“All you need is love” – the legendary Beatles sang and were absolutely right. Finding true love is as essential for human beings as water, air, and food. But the majority of people can’t even imagine how much it depends on the way we think, speak and act.
The power of positive thinking shouldn’t be underrated. Modern psychologists and philosophers agree that thoughts greatly affect our intentions, and, as a result, our reality. That’s why it’s so important to learn how to control them, without falling into negativity and despair. We attract what we are, like a mirror – if you act out of love and respect to others, are positive in your thoughts and actions, you’re meant to attract not only prosperity and success but also the true love of your life.

Focus on Positivity

Start from positive, never give up quotes.

Try to use them as often as possible, be kind, radiate positivity. As soon as it becomes a part of your everyday life, it will become a part of your mind, affecting positive thinking. Be optimistic, try to find at least one good thing in any situation, do the same with people. Use positive affirmations to talk to yourself as well. “I deserve love and I get it in abundance”, “I love what I do and people that surround me”, “I am surrounded by love” – repeat it to yourself, concentrate on what you want and formulate your own affirmations. Create your own positive world, reboot yourself.

Love Yourself

You’re an incredible human being, you’re unique, you’re amazing, you’re wonderful… you have thousands of reasons to love yourself. Just do it. We can’t expect someone to love us if we don’t love ourselves: all our strengths and weaknesses, achievements and mistakes, every single detail that makes our personality just the way it is. Recognize your strong points, be confident, don’t strive to be like somebody else, put aside all doubts. You need to love yourself before anyone else can.

Act out of Love

After you’ve loved yourself, learn how to love everything and everybody around you: your job, friends, enemies, family, new challenges, opportunities, surprises. Never hold grudges and remember bad, vice versa, try to excuse people’s shortcomings, be tolerant, patient and empathetic, change your attitude to the daily routine – enjoy it, stay positive. Dr. Norman Vincent Peale in his famous book “The Power of Positive Thinking” says: “The way to happiness: keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry. Live simply, expect little, give much. Fill your life with love. Scatter sunshine. Forget self, think of others. Do as you would be done by. Try this for a week and you’ll be surprised”.

Get Over Past Loves

We are talking both about love and hatred. It flows naturally from the previous point – forgive everything, no hard feelings. You will never attract true love, carrying all those memories and insults of past loves, looking back and comparing your partners. Leave all negative emotions, resentment, and anger from the former relationships on the previous page of your life, make a lesson out of it, take it as a valuable experience that will help to avoid the same mistakes in future. Forget and let it go. Only in this way, you’ll be open to starting a new happy chapter of your life.

Dream

What is easier, my friend? Dreaming, or, scientifically speaking, visualization, is another way of positive thinking and it really works! By means of it, you create the situation that you’d like to experience, and this imaginary outcome helps to realize your idea in a real life. When you know exactly what you want, think about the concrete actions to get it, and act. For example, to find your soul mate, at least go for a walk to the public place or sign up for a dating website, communicate with people, maybe what you’re looking for is so close.

Final Positive Thought

Often finding true love turns into a line of failures, but it’s not the reason to give up. If you’re still alone in despair, maybe it’s high time to change your life? – What to start from? – Your thoughts! Follow these easy steps and you’ll be surprised with the difference. If you’re still waiting for some sign from above, here it is
