Ten Positive Words For 2020

POSITIVE WORDS FOR 2020

Positive words for 2020 is an article that I think is very much needed in the current situation with the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19.

Based on Positive Words Research analysis of nice words for 2020 to think, so that we can successfully match the current situation, we have discovered some interesting inspiring words.

Our research started by analyzing the negative feelings and emotions that emerged worldwide after the start of the coronavirus COVID-19 epidemy.

Mainly, we have seen an increase in doubt, greed, panic, anxiety, lots of fear, hate, and anger. Also, we have noticed that there was an increase in verbal bullying, especially on social media.

This being said, we have come up with the following list of ten positive words for 2020:

1. HOPE

Hope cultivated correctly is one of the antidots for doubt, together with ease and optimism. It is also said that hope is one of the essentials foods that we need as humans. There are four essential different types of food that we need in order to survive and thrive:

  • The first type of food is “bitten food”; this is the physical food – anything that can be bitten and chewed, like a piece of apple;
  • The second type of food is sleep;
  • The third food is hope, and ancient books describe it as such. A horse strayed into the Sahara, in the desert, and wandered the sands for several days in search of water. Even when he is ready to die of thirst, he smells of water; he crawls on his knees over a hill and sees down an oasis with a small freshwater lake. The idea is – no matter how close the end is – the horse will be able to reach the water. Maybe his body is weak, but the hope is enough to sustain him for the last hundred yards. Hope keeps him on his feet, as we all do.
  • The fourth food simply consists of uninterrupted moments of concentration.

The above four types of food are specified in Geshe Michael Roach – “Love Karma”, pages 150-151.

2. GENEROSITY

Generosity is one of the antidotes for greed, together with altruism, benevolence, self-restraint, and unselfishness.

Making sure that every day you feel generous is the base for prosperity, abundance, financial freedom. Having all the money you need when you needed it comes from a feeling of generosity. You feel the power of the feeling of generosity when you think that all that you need is more than you need it and it is always at your disposal.

Some higher thoughts of generosity will appear in your mind when you convince yourself that you can be paid by being you and there is money for you in the world like the oxygen. Some lower thoughts of generosity, but also very efficient, will come to you if you just believe that you have and you will always have more than enough. Believe that life will always take care of anything you need.

3. LOVING-KINDNESS

Surprisingly, loving-kindness is one of the antidotes for panic, together with self-relief and body movement. Loving-kindness is a difficult feeling to feel, especially to feel it every day and choose it every moment, when needed. Monks practice embodying loving-kindness for years, through many actions that they take every day. But even at a lower level, loving-kindness has tremendous benefits on your mind and body.

Loving-kindness is more than kindness. It is said that if you want to really feel what love is, then practice kindness for two years, then loving-kindness for another two years, then you are ready to practice Love. This practice is done in three ways: towards yourself, towards other people and towards life (the entire existence as it is). Be kind to yourself, to other people and to life as it shows right now.

4. CENTERDNESS

Centeredness is one of the antidotes for anxiety, together with self-relief and body movement. Centeredness is again something challenging to do, especially in these times. Some people center themselves in the center of the Earth, of course through visualization. You can do it too. Just imagine that you are connected with a golden light full of pure unconditional love in the center of Earth.

Besides centering yourself on the Planet Earth, I suggest centering your mind and heart in something higher than Earth. This can be done through a combination of connecting with your higher self, with the six Dimension (the formless dimension full of unconditional love) as it is done in theta healing, with the Holy Trinity (Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, God) as it is done in Christianity and many other divine connections as they exist in every culture.

No matter how you connect with a divine higher force (power, grace) is perfect. What I want to draw attention upon is for you to do it. It’s more important, not how you do it, but to just do it. Keep your mind focused (connected) on that higher power, no matter how you define it or believe in it.

5. BRAVERY

Bravery is another word for courage and it is one of the antidotes for fear, together with action and fearlessness. Have courage in these difficult times, be brave. Easily said, harder to be done when fear is knocking on your door. But humans are stronger and more courageous than they know. Due to our modern facilities, we have become comfortable in many ways. When our modern facilities are threatened, our comfort gets disturbed.

But we are not machines to operate only in a certain way. We are humans and there are many strong qualities and abilities in us, that are only dormant. Wake up your human abilities and be amazed by how brave you really are. Inspire yourself to have the courage and you will inspire other people to have courage too.

6. APPRECIATION

Appreciation, believe it or not, is one of the antidotes for hate, together with gentle love and goodwill.

I think a lot of verbal bullying comes from the lack of a temporary ability of one person to appreciate. First, this situation occurs because the person lacks education and does not know how to practice the art of appreciation. Surprisingly, based on the research I’ve done through my Positive Words Research project, this is the main reason why people don’t appreciate more. Second, this situation occurs because people did not train themselves to be strong in their choice between appreciation and bullying/hating/criticizing.

I strongly believe that practicing the art of appreciation can stop bullying, self-hatred, hating others, self-criticizing or criticizing others.

7. ACCEPTANCE

Acceptance and mainly “acceptance of what is” is one of the antidotes for anger, together with humbleness and forgiveness. The faster you accept what is, the faster you cool yourself down, even before you caught fire. Not catching fire is the secret of winning over anger.

Some say that anger is good, it’s transforming energy. Anger makes you change things. A lot of people change the material world with the energy of anger. I agree that anger is good. But I need to point something out and it is very important.

In the scale of consciousness, Dr. David Hawkins presents, below anger, the lower energies of shame, guilt, apathy, grief, fear, and desire. Therefore if you find yourself in a state of apathy, then anger is good because you will get yourself out of apathy and raise your vibration. Same, if you find yourself in a state of fear, then anger again is good.

Then again, on the same scale of consciousness, the same doctor presents, above anger, the feelings of pride, courage, neutrality, willingness, acceptance, reason, love, joy, peace and enlightenment. If you find yourself at the level of reason and you let yourself feel the anger then you significantly drop in vibration and consciousness. Also, please notice that acceptance is a state above anger. Therefore in order for you to reach the acceptance stage, you need to let go of anger.

8. EMBRACING VULNERABILITY

Embracing vulnerability is one of the antidotes for shame, together with audaciousness and self-worth.

Brene Brown has made amazing research on vulnerability and she briefly explains her research on her viral TEDx talk “The Power of Vulnerability”. Among her many conclusions, she also states: “Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity, and change.”

Yes, change is scary. But, also, change is constant. Change is security. You can always trust that change will happen. In the middle of change, when change is happening remember: This too shall pass… this too shall change.

9. FRIENDSHIP

Maybe surprisingly for some people, but friendship is one of the antidotes for boredom, together with fun and playfulness. We like to be friends with people we like. We like to be friends with people with whom we have things in common.

How about expanding our boundaries and starting showing friendship to people we never thought we could be friends with. For example with people from other countries or people from the same country as you, who are returning home. No need to make a spectacular contribution, just small acts of kindness. Like a good welcome comment on a social network, or an encouragement of some kind. Empathy helps you a lot in friendship.

10. CONTENTMENT

Contentment is one of the antidotes for helplessness, together with serenity and ease. Contentment is a little more than thankfulness and less than gratitude, joy or happiness. But it helps a lot. It has a lot to do with being thankful for what you have, but is actually, being content with what you have. A little smile on your face is an ingredient of contentment.

I remember one of the smallest types of meditation that I learned at one point in my life “Sit, don’t talk, smile”. In this meditation: sit still, don’t speak with your mouth, smile and mentally scan all the organs in your body. This is contentment.

Well, I hope you found some inspiration to help you get through these challenging times.

Meditate upon the positive words in this list and try to implement small actions in your life. In this way, these powerful words will become antidots for negative feelings and emotions. For yourself and the people around you.

The Secret Behind Positive Thinking Techniques

I use the tag line “Secret", first, to get your attention and second because there really is a secret to achieving it, especially for those of us who are not naturally happy-go-lucky persons! There are an optimist and a pessimist living inside of everyone. While you read this remember that I am speaking to your pessimist, that voice inside you who tends to see the glass as half empty, but who really wants to see it as half full. Generally when we speak about positive thinking, images of happy people frolicking off into the distance come to mind, or we’ll think of them with thought bubbles filled with smiley faces above their heads. We might even imagine that positive thinkers are in denial of what “real" life is all about and we wish they would come down to earth. I believe all of us know of, or have a friend or acquaintance who always looks on the bright side of life. So when our pessimist comes into contact with that person they may want to slap them back into reality, and with good reason.

The Secret to Positive Thinking Techniques Life experience isn’t always about happy endings or riding off into the distant sunset arm in arm with someone you love. But life is about experiences that can be viewed one of two ways. Let’s choose an example of a life event that is considered “negative", a situation in which most people would be left feeling hurt, angry, vengeful or afraid, such as loss of employment or loss of a relationship.

Most people would respond to either of these situations by asking themselves or those around them, “Why me?" Or, “Which custom essay service I need to choose" Or, “Why does this always happen to me?" After which they would spend significant time muddling through scenarios in their minds that they believe may have caused the experiences to happen.

Many of those scenarios would revolve around self doubt, self dislike or blaming others. Engaging in these thoughts, while comforting, will never change what has happened and can create more experiences of the same ilk to occur. Negativity draws more unto itself. This might seem like Latin, but once you understand it you will understand that positivity does the exact same thing.

So what’s the secret? The truth is, it’s a secret formula that begins one step at a time, which, after practice becomes second nature. Once it sticks you will have evolved into someone who achieves their goals, embraces all of their experiences and who feels certain in a world filled with endless possibilities.

What follows are some simple steps to begin:

Start noticing the words and phrases you use on a daily basis and write down the most common terminology you use when speaking about yourself or others. Do you refer to yourself as dumb, ugly, insignificant, or stupid? Do you speak to or about others the same way? Notice and eradicate defeating vocabulary from you self talk immediately!

Start noticing the questions you ask about yourself, your life and your experiences. Do you use questions that include the words, “always", “never" or “should"? Do you ask questions like, “I can’t believe this is happening"? Or do you make pronouncements like, “I can’t do that!"? Begin right now, to ask questions of yourself that provide solutions instead of blame or wonder. Stop asking the question, “Why?"!

Do the people you associate with most often fret, complain and generally bitch about their circumstances without ever taking action to change them? If so you might want to seek out people who you admire. Then pay attention to what they talk about and how they have achieved their goals.

In every circumstance you face that seems negative, do a future projection in your mind to visualize what good may have come from it or more important, ask yourself what you learned from it. Then be grateful for the future experience in advance! If you can’t seem to do a future projection then think like a child and make pretend you can!

For the love of Pete be grateful! Find any little thing you can be Thankful for and do it. Feel it, even if it’s just the color of a flower or feeling the wind on your face. When you begin to notice everything around you that costs nothing to enjoy you will begin slowly to see the world in a new light of day, in a positive way.

Notice that what you focus on does affect your experience and what you focus on the most you will always receive. Think about this and you will realize its true, but really understanding it takes the skill and teaching of an experienced guide, like a life coach who can notice and assist you in re-directing your thought habits. Make a determined effort to find and hire a coach to take you much further than you can go by reading, it will make a huge difference in time and money.

That’s the secret and there’s more, a lot more to learn. When you begin here you will start to notice small changes in your attitude. Make a note of these changes and congratulate yourself for being willing to self reflect, evolve and change. When you are ready, seriously consider finding a mentor, your cheerleader and someone who knocks on the door of your mind to wake you up to those behaviors you cannot see for yourself. Inevitably, you will find the Secret to unlocking your potential and move far beyond the limits you imagined were holding you back.

Students vs. Depression: 5 Ways to Encourage Positive Thinking

Nearly every person on the planet experiences a depressing episode at least once in their lives. Sadly, in many cases, this happens exactly during one’s student years. Many factors contribute to this, from the hormonal cocktail of puberty to outright unrealistic expectations the world seems to heap upon one’s shoulders. It really is no wonder that suicide is the second leading cause of death among students (ADAA) or that 1in 5 college students suffer from anxiety or depression (TheConversation). In fact, real numbers can be higher, and we’ll never know because the majority of those suffering do not seek help.

Students vs. Depression 5 Ways to Encourage Positive Thinking

It’s overwhelming to be so stressed with assignments, removed from home and support, and anxious about social and financial issues. That’s how many students are these days, and they have no one but themselves to rely on for getting through this.

Of course, it would be best to seek help, guidance, and counseling. But let’s be real, few people have the means and willpower to do this, especially when they are already struggling with a depressive episode. Thus, you have to use self-healing methods to fight theworst of it off. Positive thinking is one of those methods, and there’s research toprove its efficiency. The trick is to learn how to use and reinforce it whendefault thoughts in your head are far from positive.

5 Ideas on How to Nurture Positive Thinking within Yourself

1. Assume the best. Forcibly if you have to

One of the greatest dangers of depression is how one absolutely innocent thing can drag you down a devolving spiral of dark negative thoughts. For example, you get a new assignment and five minutes later you become a trembling ball of anxiety and the only thought in your head is that you don’t have it in you to succeed.

Does that sound familiar?

Forcing you to assume the worst is what depression does, so you have to intentionally redirect those thoughts. Every time you get that kind of feeling, you need to stop yourself and play a game of positives. Go like this, you get a new complex assignment and next, you tell yourself ‘I can do it, I know which books I need, I have done similar things before, I have the power to succeed’. And even if you don’t really believe it yet in your heart of hearts, repeating those affirmations to yourself will help you get there.

2. Provide yourself with positive visuals

As a student, you should know that images have a great power. In fact, it will be a part of your program to learn ways to visualize your data. That’s necessary for making your academic papers more comprehensible and authoritative. And you can apply the same methods of visualization in your quest of encouraging your brain to think positive.

Of course, you can simply stare at some specific images when repeating positive affirmations to yourself. Accompanying information with a picture makes the human brain memorize it better, as proves research. However, to beat depression, you need something more powerful. Instead, you should create charts, diagrams, and videos that will commemorate positive moments in your life and show your progress toward your goals.

Making these visuals personal will help you remember the good times and enhance your inner optimist, who is sleeping due to the depression. And working on them will take your mind off negative thoughts as you’ll be focused on a task. Visualization tools you use for your academic work will ensure that you create those ‘positive thinking aids’ fast, so your study schedule won’t be affected.

3. Make an effort to surround yourself with positivity

Do you know what doesn’t help fighting depression? Toxic environment and people, both of which contribute to this mental disorder. There are studies to prove it. But what you need to take from them is that your environment has the power to affect your mental health. Therefore, you can use it to achieve the opposite effect.

Surrounding yourself with positive people and hanging out in places with a good and welcoming atmosphere will do this. Start with your favorite café and then look at various clubs and societies they have on campus.

4.      Become a philanthropist

A great way to promote positive thinking within yourself is seeing the happiness on other people’s faces and knowing you put it there. So, when you feel depressed, go out to your local shelter and volunteer to help out. Or participate in some community programs. Or find some other way to give to other people.

At the very least, you should go to the nearest support group and share your story. Not only will that help you, but seeing that you are making progress in battling your demons will inspire others in the same position.

5.      Turn bad situations into learning experiences

Positive thinking cannot prevent you from making mistakes or experiencing something bad. However, that’s when you need to apply logic.

Yes, something went wrong, but here you are. You survived, and now you can look back, learn from the experience, and be stronger for it!
