The very first thought you have right when you wake up is very important: whether it is a positive one or not will dictate the rest of your day.

One thought usually leads to another, until you condition one pattern for the day. If your first thought is negative, then chances are by the time you start the day you’ll have established the wrong pattern – and here goes another day.

On the other hand, if you start the day right by having more positive thoughts.. it will inevitably translate into the rest of your day.

The best way to live a happy, fulfilling life is to condition yourself to have the right thoughts. To that end, I always recommend to incorporate any empowering habit to your morning ritual – your hour of power, whatever you do before you decide to take on the day.

In this article, you will discover the 27 positive thought of the day you can have from the moment you wake up to start the day in the best way possible. Later on, we’ll discuss 3 easy ways that you can be happier in your life.

Positive Thought Of The Day #1 – ”Thank You For Giving Me Another Day, God!”

positive thought of the day

We never think about it because we’ve been used to waking up each and every morning. It has become no big deal for us to wake up alive, it is just normal.

This is how most people think, but the truth is that we could go to sleep and never wake up ever again. There is no certainty that there will be a tomorrow, apart from the illusion that most people buy into.

Whether you are a religious person or not doesn’t matter ; by attributing this to a higher existence (whether you refer to it as ‘’God’’ or ‘’The Universe’’ doesn’t matter), it gives us the feeling that we have been given a gift we get to enjoy.

Positive Thought Of The Day #2 – ”Today Is One More Opportunity For Me To Contribute To The World!”

The most simplest, easiest and effortless way of feeling happy for anybody is to contribute. Human beings get tremendous pleasure for getting out of themselves and giving something of (perceived) value to another human being.

Have you ever donated money to somebody, whether it be to a homeless person on the street or for a charity? There is no better feeling than knowing that you contributed to somebody else in some way and made their life better.

Contribution can have many forms: it can be money (the amount doesn’t matter), time (physically volunteer) or any other resources. As long as you’re giving something away for free, you’re contributing!

Make contribution a priority in your life.

Nobody can change if they keep living in the past. What happened does not determine what will happen.

No matter how much you failed and got stamped on in the past, it does not mean that the same thing will happen in the future. Always expect the best for your life.

Let’s talk about 3 easy ways that you can be happier in your life right now!

1 – FOCUS ON THE PRESENT MOMENT

When it comes to being present, most people are bad at it. They have a tendency to either focus on the past, which you can’t change, or the future, which you can. In either case, none of them will ever bring you happiness.

  • The Past is about events that are over and done with, but many people persist in focusing on it as if they could have any kind of influence on it. All it does is reopening old wounds and making you suffer.
  • The Future is about anticipation: what is going to happen, which is why oftentimes, focusing too much on it may trigger anxiety and fear. The future is made up of goals and visions, which makes it great for achievement but horrible for happiness.
  • The Present, on the other hand, is the only period in which you have a direct impact. Although the events of the past are long gone and those of the future still on their way, the present moment is now.

Now, it doesn’t mean that you should stop thinking about the past and the future: there is still value in it.

Namely, it’s important to learn from our mistakes and as such, makes it very valuable to think back on the past. In the same way, knowing where you want to go in life is essential which makes the act of thinking about the future crucial as well.

There needs to be a balance between focusing on the past, the present and the future.

How To Use The Power Of Now

There are many ways to stop thinking about the past or the future and start focusing on the present moment. One of which is extremely well-known: meditation. This practice is all about getting out of your head which helps tremendously feel the present moment.

Taking deep breaths and focusing on your breathing is a very good strategy to use the power of now. Other than that, you could focus on anything else that’s in your environment right now: a clock ticking, the wind… and it will slowly bring you back to the present moment.

2 – CHANGE YOUR VALUES

Values are what determine the way we feel about something, and how important it is to us. Our actions are a direct reflection of the values we have.

For instance, if one of your values is that there is nothing more important than family in life, then chances are you’ll live a totally different life than someone whose primary value is to have fun and like adventure.

Someone who treasures fun and adventure in life will be very likely to travel a lot, whereas someone who treasure their family a lot will be very likely to stay with them most of the time. It doesn’t mean that you can’t both love your family and travel, but if your first value is to cherish them, then you’ll spend more time with them because it’s who you are.

Anything can wind up in our list of values: family, fun, adventure, friends, honesty, contribution… More importantly, happiness can be valued too!

THE KEY IS TO VALUE HAPPINESS!

Although we all value happiness, we value it at different levels. Could you imagine how different of a life you would live if you valued success more than happiness, as opposed to valuing happiness more than success? 

In the first case, you would be miserable until you do get a sense of achievement. In the second case, you would be happy all the time regardless of what happens because there would be no condition on your happiness!

The first thing you need to do is to make a decision: that of valuing happiness more than anything else.

This is the first step towards living an extraordinary life. Once you do that, you need to make this value part of your identity. Up until now, you have been influenced by circumstances or other people which is the reason why you value what you value.

Everyday, you need to consistently read out loud – and more importantly say it with passion, believe in what you say! – your new list of value, with happiness being number 1 so that you can remember it anytime. Then, each time you find yourself slipping and not following your new value list, just take control of your thoughts and change your behavior! It’s that simple.

After a certain number of times, without realizing it, you’ll have valued happiness and won’t need to give it any attention – you’ll simply live this way.

3 – GET RID OF LIMITING RULES (OR BELIEFS)

WHAT IS A LIMITING RULE?

First, let’s define it: a rule (or a belief) is something that tells you how things should be, and if things aren’t that way, it will frustrate you.

Most often than not, rules operate on a subconscious level – we aren’t aware of it, but they do exist. For instance, let’s talk about a common-shared rule, that says: ”If this person does not look at me in the eyes when I’m talking to them, it means that they don’t care about what I’m saying.”

Usually, this is typically the structure of a rule: ”If… then it means that..”

Just like values, our rules have been forged through time by experiences, and people. Rules are a way for your brain to tell you: ”If this rule is not followed, you will experience massive pain.” Now, can you see how limiting rules can be?

Although you do believe that your rules are true, most of them not. They’re just your own interpretations of what something means.

A RULE IS JUST AN INTERPRETATION OF AN EVENT

For instance, if you’re going to talk to somebody that doesn’t look at you in the eyes, you will start feeling angry and frustrated that this person doesn’t listen to you, even though this person may have a totally different reason not to look at you in the eye.

Maybe they’re just shy. It might even be a cultural difference, or whatever.

Now, can rules be beneficial? Of course. For example, we all have a rule that says: ”If I get hit by somebody, then it means this person is an enemy.” which helps us not getting killed.

RULES THAT PREVENT YOU FROM BEING HAPPY

Here is the interesting part: do you have any rules that prevent you from being happy? If you’re not already happy right now, you probably do.

In order to find that out, all you need to do is answer this one question: what need to happen for you to be happy?

When asked this question, a lot of people usually answer in the same way: more money, a wife/husband, good weather, being popular…

All of these are what are preventing them from being happy. Some people even come up with crazy answers, impossible to fulfill, such as: ”I need for everyone to love me”, which cannot be done.

On the other hand, some people have more simple, better and realistic answers, such as: ”All I need is to wake up alive!”. If that’s all your need to be happy, then you’re on way to living a great life!

What rules do you need to get rid of in order for you to be happy? Identity as many as you can and get rid of them to live the life of your dreams.
