As someone who fought a long battle with depression for the majority of their life, I’d have to say one of the most important steps I’ve taken is cultivating a warrior’s mindset. A mindset that isn’t just positive but resilient, looking for ways to overcome, and seeking creative ways to move forward. When I first started to train myself to think positively, it felt fake because it was on the opposite end of the spectrum to how I felt. I realized that my negative attitude and defeated mindset was getting me nowhere fast.
While it felt strange and awkward to think so contrary to how I felt, I continued to cultivate positive thoughts. Over the course of six months, I realized it was really starting to make a difference. It took daily dedication and effort but the persistence paid off! Nearly four years since I began challenging my negative thoughts and negativity doesn’t stand a chance! Today I just wanted to encourage you to create a habit of cultivating positive thoughts. Training yourself to nip those negative thoughts in the bud and focusing on solutions instead of problems will empower you to build a warrior’s mindset!
Wishing you all that you need to support you in your journey!
