Posted April 5, 2012on:
Everyone wants to be physically fit. Also want to be healthy mentally. The true measure of mental health is how optimistic your outlook about yourself and your life. Learn how to control your mind with a very special way so that you feel great about yourself and your condition, no matter what is going on.
1. Your reaction control
There are three differences in the reactions of optimists and pessimists. The first difference is the optimist sees a setback as temporary, while the pessimist sees it as something permanent. Optimists see an unfortunate event, such as sales orders declined or failed, as a temporary event, something that appears a time but has no impact on the future. Pessimists, on the other hand, view negative events as permanent, or part of the life and destiny.
2. Isolation of Incident
The second difference between the optimist and the pessimist is an optimist sees the difficulty just as something specific, while the pessimist sees it as something to do. That is when a fault occurs, the optimist sees the incident as an isolated incident or not connected with other things that happened in his life. Only occurs on one side of life, no need to exaggerate to other things.
3. The Only is Seatback
If at any time what you plan apparently failed to materialize and then you could consider it as an unfortunate incident, but later considers the failure was only an occasional event that does occur naturally in the course of life and business, then you’re reacting like an optimist. Pessimists, on the other hand, see failure or disappointment as something in, take it as an indication of a problem or deficiency that covers all areas of their lives.
4. Do not Take Failure Personally
A third difference between optimists and pessimists are optimists see events / events as external factors, while pessimists interpret events as personal. When there is a setback, the optimist will tend to see setbacks as a result of external factors that are beyond control.
For example, if people are not optimistic about his car cross the street polite, not angry or upset, he would only lower the level of interest of the incident by saying something like, “Oh, maybe the last was in a hurry or just having a bad day.”
Pessimists on the other hand, has a tendency to take everything personally. If people are pessimistic about the time his vehicle cross the street, he would react as if the other driver has deliberately acted to provoke anger and frustrate him.
5. Stay Calm and Ojektif
Personal characteristics of a fully mature, fully in control, and good at self-actualization is the ability to be objective and not easy to get caught up in emotional when the inevitable storms of daily life. People who have superior ability to continue talking to himself in the form of a positive and optimistic, keeping his mind calm, clear and completely under control. Private mature normally more relaxed and aware, and able to look at events with more realistic and less prone than personal emotions are immature. So that’s, adults have high levels of sensitivity and a much higher impact on the environment, and less likely to be angry, upset, or disturbed.
6. Take the Distance
Look at setbacks that you experience as something temporary, specific and external. Look at the negative situation as a single event that is not related to other events, as being caused by factors which you have little control over it (natural factors). You must reject the thought that you experience a setback as a permanent thing, let alone as a sign of personal incompetence that cause you lack the confidence to face future challenges. Decide to become an optimist, no matter what happens. You may not be able to prevent negative events occur, but you can control how you react to it.
7. Train Your Mind
Here are 3 three immediate actions you can take to develop optimistic thinking in the form of action:
First, remind yourself continually that setbacks are temporary, they will soon be past you and not as serious as you think (do not lebay).
Second, look at every problem as a specific event, which is not connected to other events and did not show any pattern about yourself. Stop frustrating setbacks / failures and continue your life.
Third, if a problem occurs, usually they are also caused by external events. Say to yourself, “Where should ditabahkan irreparable.” Learn to let go and stay focused on your goals.
