Positivity are vibes that came not only naturally, but enforcing as well. We need to instill ourselves with positive vibes or else, we couldn’t even run our daily lives properly. Positive vibes exude confidence in us. With confidence, we whisper to our minds that “Yes, I can do this. Yes, I can do that.” It’s important to have this self-belief in order to negate the majority of the challenges that we indefinitely faced. To instill ourselves with positive vibes, I believe that we need to have a conscious mind, clear all the negativity that surround us and, have faith.
It is often believed that depressed people are trudging through their daily lives due to them not completely aware of their surroundings. Their conscious mind only believes in one thing, sadness over everything. They overlook the good things thus finding negatives in every single situation. In other words, their conscious mind is not completely stable. We are living in a stress world, that’s undeniable. However, to cope with the stress, people have to be conscious enough that they are taking everything a little bit too seriously. As a Muslim, we are taught that this world is a temporary place for us to live in. The hereafter is where we belong. However, we should not give up or not try hard for a particular thing that you want to achieve for. All these things ultimately become your responsibility. Allah SWT attached us with these responsibilities here, so that we could keep on going in this life. These responsibilities will then reflect ourselves in the hereafter therefore, we should try our best and let the results be in His way. By letting the results be in His way, we say Alhamdulillah for everything, whether good or bad. In that state, consciousness in our mind began acknowledging the good things in life. We then start to embrace them. All we need is to look around, be in a state where good things are there for you and stop hindering ourselves with a negative mindset.
Talking about negativity, we should quickly clear them before it takes over our mind. Your mind doesn’t need those. The question is, how do you clear them without ever feeling the negativity is there in the first place? One of the things that I’ve learned is to treat every negativity as a blessing. We are landed with an amount of them. Some are even hard to cope. By having negativity as a blessing, we indirectly treat them as a positivity. Let’s say we acknowledged that they happened for a reason, and they taught you something that you ought to do but you weren’t doing it all this while. For example, you didn’t get the job that you apply or yearn for. This is a situation where you can’t changed. It’s uncontrollable by your side. However, be positive and say, “Maybe this is not meant for me. Allah has better things for me.” Wait for it, be patient and In shaa Allah, the “better things” will come. It could also be a situation where you weren’t doing well for your school, and you keep on failing. Have a positive outlook to it and try better next time. “Better” means to try and change your study ways, ask yourselves what went wrong and look for help if needed be. These are learning lessons. Have faith and try it, and see how you manage to overturn the results at the end of the day.
Lastly, faith is aligned with being positive. For us Muslims, we put our faith to Allah SWT. We began every task by reciting Bismillah. Faith in itself contains positive vibes. Before we do something, we have faith, and await for the best results. Let’s say if we don’t have faith. You won’t even contemplate on starting the certain task. Our mind has already tells us that we can’t do it. I believe that faith is a feeling that strongly associates with the optimists. Although realists still have faith in things that they do, they completely forgo it the moment they think a certain task is impossible to do so. In this case, optimists are risk takers, and by having faith in the things they want to achieve for, they do it with determination. It’s amazing how faith is the stepping stone for us to progress and be positive in our journey of achievement.
We all feel negative at certain times. Emotions are possible to deal with if we do not attach them to the worldly things that came upon us. Deal the negativity with ease by having a strong conscious that they are poisonous to our lives. Also, balance your life by being optimistic or realistic depending on different situations that suits you best. Control your life and mind and be astounded at how your life gets better.
In shaa Allah.
