Discover Your Brain Strengths to Navigate Life
I’m wondering how many of you have felt alone and lost in the “basement level” of your brain, and didn’t know how to escape from the clutches of your negative feelings and thoughts. It’s a yucky and miserable experience. We all have some knowledge about the power of a positive mental attitude; conversely, we also have experienced the effects of negative mental attitudes. Can you see that your mental attitude is a two-sided coin? Is it possible you have a choice of where you want to live in terms of your mind state? If you believe you can become the “captain of your life,” the following practical neuroscience-based suggestions will help you climb stair steps to get positive and stay positive.
Getting and Staying Positive
Gratitude is the staircase of positive living. The first step is identifying everything you are grateful for. Consider organizing and recording these by categories on colored index cards.
You probably have observed that there are few, if any, categories for extrinsic areas of gratitude; these have been deliberately excluded, as they are transitory and do not provide a sustainable positive mental attitude. This is not to say that money and physical possessions are not good or valuable; they merely come and go and rarely provide long-lasting peace of mind and fulfillment. Perhaps this is an underlying reason why so many people are negative and in pain.
Emergency First Aid Steps
In conclusion, gratefulness is the staircase for positive living. Everything you are grateful for forms a neural “root system” that is the foundation for living life to the fullest. Imagine each thing you are grateful for as a step on your staircase; even if you trip and fall, you can land in a good place. Intrinsic areas of gratitude are more powerful and stable steps than extrinsic ones. Reaching out and helping someone, who is temporarily in a negative state, return to a higher level elevates you as well. Consider carrying cards with what you are grateful for, and your mantras, around with you. Practical neuroscience is at your beck and call to create a better life and better world.
