To go beyond positive thinking means you will have to take an in depth look at yourself with kind eyes.Beyond Positive Thinking

Positive thinking is merely an attempt of controlling our lives through the basis of our thoughts.

If you want to take control of your life its important that you gain a basic understanding of who you are; how healthy is your self-image?

Our self-image, which is the picture of ourselves that we hold in our minds, plays a major role in the development of our personality.

All our actions, feelings, behaviors, and even our abilities are consistent with this picture we have formed in our mind. We literally act out the kind of person that we think that we are.

When I say we need to go Beyond Positive Thinking I am referring to improving the picture we have formed of ourselves within our mind.

If our self-image is damaged then we tend to believe that we are damaged.

What we have to be aware of is that as long as we are holding onto that picture of ourselves there is no amount of will power, commitment , determination or effort that will cause us to be any other way, because we are always going to act in the way that we see ourselves.

So it is really our self-image that we must work on if we want to see any type of personal change for once we improve our self-image we can then venture beyond positive thinking into positive believing.

Beyond Positive Thinking Self-ImagePositive thinking will not change who we are all on its own, as long as our self-image is damaged we will never reach our full potential in life.

That’s why I say we must go beyond positive thinking to achieve any real and lasting changes.

We must take a really close look at how our self-image was formed and actions we can take to change it for the better.

Our self-image has been years in the making. From birth onwards we have collected ideas of how smart we are or how stupid, whether we are confident or fearful, we decide how we look in comparison to our peers and the list goes on.

Basically our entire self-image has been made up from all our experiences throughout our childhood. We carry these beliefs, whether they have any truth to them or not.

It is our self-image that allows us to be happy or sad, successful or unsuccessful it literally rules our life.

This is what makes up the differences of people in society, for some their self-image has been molded and shaped in a very positive way.

Yet for others it can be drastically damaged through destructive criticism received throughout their childhood.

You can take some extra steps to work on building your self-confidence . It does you no good at all to sit back and just accept these character weaknesses when you have the power to affect some real change in your life.

Take The Action To Go Beyond Positive Thinking

You should be practicing the use of affirmations and positive self-talk but you must go beyond positive thinking to the point that you start to take some real action.

Positive thinking is expecting, talking and visualizing with certainty what you want to achieve, as an accomplished fact.

Do what I did and refuse to give in to the challenges life throws at you. Try something as easy as listening to an audio program such as the one below.

I have found more strength in using these programs then I have in anything else I have tried. Of course without my wife to lean on I am not sure what effect any program would have had on me.

I am truly blessed with the strongest, sweetest most resilient wife anyone could ever wish for.

This program below is so good it goes beyond words and I am not kidding when I say this but I think this should be a required part of all school curriculum’s.

Go Beyond Positive Thinking And “Lead the Field” In Your Personal And Professional Life!

Beyond Positive ThinkingThis captivating program will take you far beyond positive thinking, this personal development masterpiece can and will never be out-dated.

This program can show you how to double your mental capability with positive thinking, you will learn how to recognize and easily overcome the biggest stumbling block to high personal achievement.

When you go beyond positive thinking you will learn to assess your potential worth, and start increasing it immediately making success in your life unavoidable.

To go beyond positive thinking you have to work on every aspect of personal development.

The most important being the self-image. Your self-image is made up of the confidence you hold in yourself which in turn affects your self-esteem.

That is why its so important to understand all aspects of personal development as they are all so closely related and each one affects the other.

Our self-esteem and our self-image are closely connected. Self-esteem is how you feel about yourself and self-image is how you see yourself.

If you have a poor opinion of yourself your self-esteem will be low. This is when you need to go beyond positive thinking and take a good hard look at your beliefs.

If you have negative beliefs about anything having to do with yourself it is imperative that you do what you can to change those beliefs.

When we are ready to make positive changes in our lives, we attract whatever we need to help us. Louise Hay

Here are 10 Ways to go Beyond Positive Thinking to Help Improve Your Self-Image.

  • List things you like about yourself, include things like appearance, personality, skills and other attributes that you take pride in.
  • Again go beyond positive thinking by changing negative thoughts to positive ones by just forgetting about any negative things that have ever happened to you. Focus strongly on the positive events that have taken place in your life.
  • Think about the compliments that people give you and write them down. You are keeping a journal of all the positives in your life….RIGHT?
  • Question why you think of yourself in negative ways. Don’t just accept it you will most likely find it to be a belief dragged on from childhood.
  • Take on something that really challenges you——you might just really surprise yourself.
  • Make some changes about yourself such as getting a new hair cut or buying some new clothes or even try a different behavior.
  • Learn to accept things about you that are true and look at them in a positive way not a negative one.
  • Try reading or listening to something motivational , something that will make you feel good and help you to look at life a little differently.
  • Help someone else out. This can help you feel good about yourself and boost your self-esteem and thus your self-image.
  • Try something new, something you never tried before like self-hypnosis. I tried this this once years ago and I really made some terrific personal gains.

Taking these steps to improve your self-image is taking a step beyond positive thinking. You are showing that you have a true desire to see some change in the way you live your life.

Beyond Positive ThinkingEvery time I took a step forward I felt terrific inside. I was showing myself that I had the strength to overcome the obstacles that tried to get in my way.

For years I practiced positive thinking and it had wonderful effects on my personal drive.

But it was when I truly went beyond positive thinking into positive acting and positive knowing that brought about positive personal development in my life.

You to can take these steps to move yourself forward, don’t be a prisoner of your past beliefs. Beliefs that were more then likely built on falsehoods.

If you are struggling with a low self-image nothing will change until you take some positive actions to help enact some change.

Its time for you to take some action, you have visited this site for a reason and you have made it all the way through this article so that is a terrific first step.

I recommend that you try a personal development audio program it is a simple step that could open the doors to a whole new world.

The program on this page is one of the first I ever purchased. Lead The Field By Earl Nightingale teaches you how to go beyond positive thinking and straight to positive knowing allowing you to reach your full potential in life.
