Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen.

Carry a positive trigger
OK, we all tend to freak out the second something is not going according to plan, or according to the way we expect it to work out. Its in these situation specifically that you need a kind of trigger to push your mind back to the positive track. Whether you’re at home, work or the supermarket a positive trigger can be a picture, a quote, a key chain, or even a text on your phone. Anything that can be carried with you at all times and has the ability to make you think positive happy thoughts. Just flip out this positive trigger when you are down and get right back on the positive track.
Having high self-esteem keeps anxiety at bay, improves personal relationships and encourages optimism. If you don’t appreciate yourself enough – or are feeling down – try making a mental list of awesome stuff you’ve done recently.
“Went for a jog instead of watching TV”; “cooked for my girlfriend”; “made an awesome presentation at work.” Make a written list if you want, and don’t be modest!
You’ll find that, as you go over your awesome actions and choices, you start to feel great about yourself. It’s hard not to when you remind yourself how amazing you are!
All during our waking hours the conscious mind, through
the five senses, acts as constant feeder to the subconscious; the
senses are the temporal source of supply for the content of the soul
mind; therefore it is most important that we know and realize
definitely and explicitly that every time we think a thought or feel
an emotion, we are adding to the content of this powerful mind,
good or bad, as the case may be. Life will be richer or poorer for the
thoughts and deeds of today.
