Step 3 – use positive affirmations
Step 4 – practice meditation
Step 5 – put together a daily routine
Sounds like the step-by-steps you need? Well let’s dive in.
Step 1: Begin with Gratitude
Gratitude does wonders to steer your thoughts away from being negative and bring you into the present moment.
Start with the little things. Even if’s only your morning cuppa or your comfortable bed focus on the feeling of gratitude and nurture that little flame.
Before you know it you’ll have an intentional habit of recognising possibilities throughout your day.
Step 2: Convert Negative Beliefs
Negative beliefs live in our heads because they’ve drifted in with a bad experience and we’ve allowed them to stay.
When you think things like “I’m not likeable” or “I can’t cook” or “something always goes wrong when I try to” these are negative or limiting beliefs. They dig their way deeper every time you repeat them.
If you keep repeating “I’m such a failure, nothing ever works out for me” then that’s what you continue to attract.
Identify them, delete them, replace them. Choose a few positive affirmations that bring your mind back to the present and use them as an anchor.

Step 3: Use Positive Affirmations
Use affirmations the right way. Start with what you know to be true. Let these statements anchor you to the present, before expecting them to bring you miracles.
When you say an affirmation take notice of how it feels in your body. Is your body saying it’s not possible or do you feel yourself nodding because it feels right?
Over time you can attach the affirmation to a specific topic. In this case what might feel right today may not be so next week attached to a different topic.
Here are 9 positive affirmations to help you shift to a positive mindset.
- Today I choose to be happy.
- I have the power to direct my life.
- I am enough.
- I believe in myself.
- I am constantly growing.
- I welcome new challenges.
- I attract positivity and happiness.
- I am resilient, calm and capable.
- I can solve problems and come up with solutions that work.
Step 4: Practice Meditation
Start by dropping back into your body or grounding yourself. This is as simple as shifting your attention from your work back to your forehead to your navel then to your feet.
I find when I’ve been busy doing external things, researching, typing, talking to someone then do this simple exercise it gives me a similar internal effect as going down in an elevator, you know that dropping feeling.
This can be followed with relaxing each muscle area of the body, slow breathing techniques or tuning into a sound like music, bird calls or even a ticking clock.
The aim of meditation is to give your mind space from thinking and let your body or intuition be heard. Allow yourself to be aware of any thoughts that can lead to negative beliefs.
Step 5: Daily Routine
Create a routine to get you started with being more positive. Keep it to a simple five to ten minutes then let it grow naturally.
- Use this time to set your intentions for the day.
- Choose a couple of affirmations to keep your self talk on track throughout the day.
- Then use this routine last thing to close your day knowing you’ve done your best regardless of the outcome.
So, there you have it! … The five steps I suggest you follow – to clean up your mindset. Follow these steps, and as you clean up your mindset and feel better you will also attract better. You’ll also have more balance and purpose in life.
