How to Maintain a Positive Thinking Mindset

Real Estate Agent with eXp Realty

Quite often inside my mind.

There are thousands of thoughts popping up every day.

Life can seem challenging to me.

Then after many years, I get around to talking with some people.

It seems to be something (I would think) everyone experiences at one time or another.

Just that well over eighty percent of people don’t divulge it.

Seems the reason for people to not convey, they got a speeding ticket, or got drunk, or made any kind of mistake, it is pride.

Is that what it is?

Talking to you folks who say you live a perfect life.

And are all pretty, nice, and your hair isn’t even missed up when you get out of bed.

I’m wondering if the reason, I spill the beans often to friends.

And no one else does, maybe it is just because I am a brutally honest person.

EXAMPLE: I just forgot what the title of this post was and had to look.

Belief, especially believing in yourself.

And believing in yourself that you can accomplish almost anything is a huge part of it.


Reading your bible and other inspiring books, listening to CD’s, watching DVD’s that are inspirational.

Maybe playing ball with your children, or getting down on the floor and playing with your grand children, or even your great grand children.

If you are in real estate sales, and you sell two homes and list three in the same week.

Even though it is not taking up 60 hours of your week.

We forget to fit those other exercises in, right?

Then too, things are going so great.

We consider the listings and sales the same motivation.

And loose track for reading and listening to motivational things.


And we begin the same ole grind next week.

I would love to hear your thoughts.

Then too, after a few thousand posts, and thousands of them viewed.

It is well understood, you won’t, just like a thousand, even millions of Americans won’t go to the poles and vote.

That last election in 2016, brought the numbers up.

Didn’t it?

If I could hear from three out of 300, it would be great.

And five to seven of you, wow that would help my positive, happy, joyful, mindset take off today.

Positive thinking really gets your mind set take things as they come and not worry too much about what could happen, but deal with what you have in front of you first.

I think were all positive when it's come to making comments here. We never want to tell others what's really going on. Yes my hair is always perfect when I get up and life is perfect for me.

Dan, today I am centered. Yesterday, not so much. Being present and letting go, forgiving yourself and others for NOT being perfect are several choices we can all make, moment-to-moment. 

I try to read something that speaks to me, to my soul, every morning...sometimes it gets put aside til later in the day. But that keeps me paying attention to my self-talk, my intention and gets me back to center....hopefully.

Thank you for your honesty!

Yes it’s all about the mind and you being in control of your thoughts versus your thoughts controlling YOU. It takes learning and some practice but what an incredible difference. Thanks for your post.

Great post! 

I am actually working on being more vulnerable and allowing people to see exactly what is going on in my life, without getting to an over-sharing or TMI situation. As humans we struggle - my motto is progress, not perfection :)

I've always been challenged as a business owner to share my time with family and friends because I had put my business first on my priority list. 

Thankfully, I finally realized that there was more to life than material success, so, adjustments to my lifestyle and family activities became as important as my business. My calendar begins with my family time first and then my business and if opportunities are missed, I'm not desolate.

Someone told me years ago that success is defined by how you feel and not by what you possess.

I understand what you mean about others portraying their perfect selves and not disclosing any vulnerabilities.  That seems to be the way of the future.  It's too bad because that perfect mentality will only get you so far.  I always maintain a certain vulnerability with my clients so they are free to express themselves.  No one is perfect and portraying that is not being true to us humans!
