Welcome To The Seven Day Positive Mindset Journey
“Today Is The Day”
During the 7 days of this journey, you will learn all about how to shift your negative mindset into a more positive one.
More importantly though, are the steps you will take to make this journey a part of your natural thinking process.
This is accomplished by sticking with it and making a commitment to complete the journey.
When we commit to goals and aspirations, such as weight loss or sticking to a fitness routine, it is imperative for us to look upon this activity as a positive endeavor.
Setting up a foundation for success requires that we begin to train our mind to anticipate success, while remaining energized and positively charged for the challenges we know we will be facing.
This is how we create sustainable change in our habits!
Beginning today, you will be given a daily outline of the step by step activities.
This is a specific action to take and there will be some supplemental reading materials.
I cannot stress how important it is to honor the decision you made to begin this journey; and to follow through to the end.
Plus, when you do, amazing things begin to happen. Suddenly, you are a more positive person, and that helps other people around you be more positive as well.
Benefits of Positive Mindset:
Day One: What are your reasons for wanting to be more positive?
“Prepare your garden for the coming harvest”
Today, you will be introduced to thinking more positively by focusing on YOUR reasons to be more positive.
Any time you attempt something new, it is important that you understand why you are doing it.
Without the ‘why’, it can be hard to find the motivation to begin, let alone complete it!
This is where a lot of people fail – rushing into big changes without becoming intimate with the ‘why’ as well as with the benefits.
Also, don’t mistake benefits for reasons.
While benefits sound enticing, our personal situations are a powerful motivation for commitment and change.
Your activity for today:
Make a list of Reasons You Want to Be More Positive.
This is going to be an easy opening for your Positive Mindset Journey.
All you have to do today is to write down a list of the reasons you want to be more positive.
- Find or buy a special pen that makes you feel happy and keep it with your notebook. It will trigger pleasant thoughts, and that is what this is about, isn’t it?
- Think about the benefits you are hoping for.
- If you are feeling a little stuck on why you want to think more positively, here are some ideas:
- It can help with your daily mood.
- You would like to change a pessimistic attitude into a optimistic one.
- An ongoing project or goal would go smoother with some positivity.
- Other people are having a negative influence on your self esteem.
- You would like to have more energy or enthusiasm during the day.
Day Two: The Power of Affirmations
“I am going to have an AMAZING day today”
Yesterday, you made a list of the reasons why you want to be a more positive person and learned some of the benefits that make it worthwhile.
Choose Your Daily Positive Affirmations
Today, your objective is to come up with at least 5 affirmations that are personal to you and your circumstances.
Here are some examples:
If you wake up feeling anxious about the upcoming day, try something like this:
“I am grateful for my life and all the good things in it”
Day Three: The power of Journaling
“I deserve to enjoy the good things in my life”
I know you are beginning to benefit from this journey so far:
(if you are doing the activities!)
You are easing into really becoming a more positive and uplifting person.
**It is not unusual to be having some resistance to all this positivity!
Don’t be discouraged if you feel negative thoughts attempting to maintain the ‘status quo’.
Be persistent and continue doing these challenges!
So far, you have made a list of reasons to think positively and have created a good number of positive affirmations to use each day.
Continue using your affirmations daily.
Today we are going to begin focusing on using a journal.
This is by far, one of my absolute favorite things to do!
I used to struggle with severe anxiety and panic attacks. It affected me often, far into the night. It caused a lot of chaos and confusion in my life.
I was in an ongoing battle that made my life miserable for far too many years!
It was when I began learning to use affirmations, writing down my thoughts and using simple lifestyle strategies that I began to notice gradual, but significant improvements in my mood and in my thinking.
My sense of well being began to improve.
Panic and anxiety abated and finally became small enough to manage.
I rarely have panic attacks anymore, and when they come I have a large set of tools to manage them.
The best part is that, while we may come up against some resistance to beginning new habits, if we persist we will begin to feel better.
- Did you receive a compliment on something that made you feel good? Write about it!
- Are you extremely grateful for your health today? Write that down!
Day Four: Learning How to Re-frame Your Negative Thoughts
“This is a temporary setback that I will overcome”

Day Seven: Time To Shine!
“We spread the light by becoming the light!”
- Be positive in every situation.
Any time you are around other people, show them through example how powerful it is to be positive.
- No matter what happens, express through words and actions that you believe you are strong enough to get through it.
Vocalize how you are using the light of a positive mindset, even in a dark tunnel.
Others will not only understand more about being positive, but they will start to develop similar habits.
- Help others find positive in negative situations.
You can also help others to think more positively about their own lives.
Has a friend come to you with a problem? Put a positive spin on it by simply listening to them. You can also help them to brainstorm a solution- if they are ready to move forward.
Support the ideas they have that can lead to ways to work it out, even if it seems improbable. Show them what you have learned.
Freely expressing ideas is how we arrive at the most likely solutions.
