Positivity is a core component of the law of attraction. Without it, there’s every chance that you’ll either attract negativity at the opposite end of the scale, or things will remain the same.

As someone who quickly lapses into something other than positivity, I know as well as anyone that being told to stay positive isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Someone encouraging you to look on the bright side isn’t a cure-all when you’re feeling down.

Nevertheless, at the risk of oversimplifying things, the law dictates that to attract good things, you need to think positive thoughts. Good attracts good and all that.

With that in mind, we at Widibi present five reasons to stay positive, discussing how a positive mindset helps with manifesting your wants and desires into your life.

1. Your Emotions Shape Your Desires

If you’ve done any reading on the subject of the law of attraction, whether that involves articles here at Widibi, The Secret or anything else, this won’t be the first time you’ve been encouraged to remain positive.

The law of attraction relies on energy, and there are such things as positive and negative energy. What you put out there is what you’ll get back, often magnified. That means if you transmit negative thoughts and desires, that’s what you’ll receive in return – and often to a much greater extent than what you started with.

Money is a standard topic with the law of attraction, and it represents the perfect example. You might already have all you need. It’s often quoted that it’s easier to make money when you already have money. That’s true, but it’s not just the act of having money that makes everything else easier.

Those that have money specifically don’t worry about not having money. Those that don’t have it might feel their heart sink when they receive a bill or a late payment notice. Try to condition yourself to believe that the money you need and deserve is already there. When a bill arrives, show gratitude for the services you’ve paid for. If you’re late on a payment, stay confident that the invoice will be paid in good time and without any issues.

By staying positive, not just about money but everything else in your life, you’ll attract everything you need and much more besides.

2. Positivity Helps You Reach Your Goals

I won’t go into the specifics of goal setting and achievement in this article, but the concept remains relevant. Everyone has ambitions and goals. If you haven’t, setting some should be top of your list. It’s a lot easier to get to where you’d like to be if you have an idea of the destination.

There may be setbacks, and you might not meet all your deadlines if you chose to set them. However, by staying positive, the universe will continuously work to arrange your circumstances to propel you towards where you’d like to be.

Even putting the law of attraction and the universe to one side, a positive mindset is all but essential. When you’re negative, you may find goals and opportunities slipping from your grasp. Someone might offer you a job or the chance to gain a qualification which, in the long run, will get you much closer to your goals. If you’re negative, you might pass it up for all sorts of reasons. It might not be exactly what you want, or it might be hard work.

However, the chances are that if the universe has presented this opportunity to you, it has bigger plans, and this is a piece of a giant puzzle.

This doesn’t mean you should take every opportunity that presents itself. You’re still free to decide whether something works for you and shouldn’t blindly jump into everything. If you find yourself at a timeshare sales pitch, the chances that the universe put you there are slim, and you probably shouldn’t spend anything!

3. Everything Feels Easier When You’re Positive

Even if this is the first article you’ve ever read on positivity and the law of attraction, you’ve had experience of this one. We’ve all woken up in the morning ready to take on the world. Similarly, we’ve all opened our eyes with nothing but staying in bed on our minds.

People often say “we all have to do things we don’t want to sometimes.” That’s true for some, but I don’t believe it’s universal. However, the camp you’re in currently dictates whether that’s true. You might love your job and wake up each day raring to go and to see what the next 24 hours have in store. You might start each morning with a feeling of dread about what the day has in store!

With the law of attraction, taking a positive approach ensures that you’re prepared for anything that may come your way. If you’ve got an essential sales pitch today, it’s ok to be nervous but don’t focus on what could go wrong. Think about how you’re making new connections, could potentially close a massive deal and all the good things that could come out of the time you spend.

If your job is boring and monotonous, think about the good reasons to stick at it. Think about your wages, your friends at work and all the other useful things. Not only will it make potentially tedious tasks a lot easier to tackle, but the universe will work away in the background to reward that positivity.

4. A Positive Mindset Encourages Great Relationships

Once upon a time, I’d have considered myself as a suspicious, untrusting person. First impressions usually boil down to two things. You’re either someone that inherently distrusts or dislikes someone the first time you meet them and waits for them to prove otherwise.

Alternatively, you go into new relationships with confidence and an open mind.

If you can spend time thinking of the good a new friendship, business relationship or romantic interest can have, the universe will reward you. This won’t be the last time that I write this phrase, but positivity attracts positivity. Even if you feel like you hide it well, others can tell when you’re subconsciously nervous, suspicious or afraid.

Decline these negative emotions and use your own positivity to attract more positive people into your life. The universe and the law of attraction have a funny way of putting people together with other like-minded individuals. The influences of those around you will often enter into your own attitudes and approaches.

To put it simply, how a positive mindset helps in relationships is it ensures that you encounter and build relationships with people that can spur you onto more important things.

5. Positivity Guarantees Happiness

How do you measure happiness? What’s something specific you can think of that made you happy?

The human mind can only cope with a certain amount of emotions at once. If you can condition yourself to take a positive approach to everything, there remains no room for negativity.

The time spent undergoing this training and conditioning is time well-spent. Like most skills, it requires effort and practice but eventually becomes second nature.

Remember that the universe is always listening, and it’s always working. Subconscious negativity is just as powerful as its conscious counterpart. If you can train yourself to take a positive, grateful approach to everything it throws in your direction, then you won’t even need to think about bringing good into being.

Once you can make a positive outlook your ‘default setting’, you’ll bring everything you want and desire into your life without explicitly thinking about it.

How a Positive Mindset Helps – In Summary

I’ll take this opportunity to go back to something I mentioned in the introduction. I know as well as anyone that telling someone to “be positive” isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. I know that I’ve done that in this article. However, I hope that explaining why being positive can make such a massive difference to your lifestyle and backing up that request has helped.

If nothing else, I’d sum it up as positivity breeds positive outcomes. With an open mind, positive thoughts and a generous sprinkling of gratitude, you can achieve anything.
