But it can be done. We just have to learn how to reprogram ourselves in such a way as to filter out the negativity. It takes a commitment of time and change. You should not expect to improve your self-image outlook in a couple of days. It requires refocusing your energy towards positive thoughts.
People that want to have a more positive outlook on life need to be consistent in their practices. And there will be setbacks along the way. The key is to not let those setbacks derail your efforts. Just pick up from the setback and move forward
You will need to create a program you can follow that will help you reposition negative thoughts into positive ones. This will require reading appropriate material on the subject. Amazon has plenty of books that can help. When choosing which books to read, try to choose ones that offer similar ideas so that you don’t get overwhelmed. If you don’t want to spend money initially, see if you can find the same books in your local library. This way, if they aren’t right for you, simply move onto the next.
Take a look through the table of contents of the books you are considering. Amazon has a Look Inside feature where they let you see the table of contents of most books that they offer. Look to see what topics are going to be covered and always be sure to read the reviews that are available. These can give you some great insight as to whether the books you select are going to help you with your goal of reshaping your negative thoughts to positive ones.
No amount of reading will be enough if you don’t put it to good use. As mentioned before, consistency is the key and you need to practice the skills that are being introduced to you. You will find that if you continue with your program, over time you will naturally have a more positive outlook and find that the naysayers become annoying to be around. When that happens, you are well on your way to keeping your positive self-image intact
