How to be positive about the future

By M.Farouk Radwan, MSc.

Why you see the future negatively

There is no doubt that your future expectations greatly impact your current mood. In a previous article i said that your current mood is the result of all of the experiences you have been through in the past in addition to all of the expectations you have about the future.

This means that if you have bad expectations about the future then you will be feeling bad right now. This also means that you will be feeling good right now if you had positive future expectations even if you were going through bad times.

Now when it comes to seeing the future positively many people do the same mistake they do when they try to think positively. Most people try to force themselves to think positively without giving their minds any kind of proof that show that things are going to get better.

In my previous article Why your subconscious mind is refusing to obey you i said that the subconscious mind can't be fooled easily. You can't just tell your subconscious mind that everything is going to be alright then expect it to believe you and make you feel better.

So what's the soloution to this problem?

How to be positive about the future

The subconscious mind is like a friend who can either trust you or distrust you based on the data you provide it with. If you managed to give the subconscious mind the right pieces of data that can prove one of your claims true then it will believe in your claims instantly.

In my book The 5 Minute Happiness Formula i said that happiness can happen instantly once your subconscious mind manages to believe your future promises. If you told your subconscious mind that everything is going to be perfect but it never believed you then your mood will never change.

If however you told your subconscious mind that the future will be positive and it believed you then your mood will change right away.

In my previous article How to convince your subconscious mind to believe in your plans i said that for your subconscious mind to believe in your promises you must provide it with a valid plan than makes a lot of sense to it.

If you tried to give promises that are not based on the logical arguments that your subconscious wants to see then your efforts will go in vain.

Use self-talk to see the future positively

In order to see the future positively you need to use your self-talk to convince your subconscious mind that everything is going to be alright. The proper way to use self-talk here is to argue with your subconscious mind until you convince it with your point of view.

Trying to force your opinion using any other method , such as affirmations, will never help you get any results simply because your subconscious mind will never believe you.

Now here is exactly what you need to do to see the future positively:

  • 1) Find out the objections of your subconscious mind: Talk to your subconscious mind ,using your ordinary self-talk, to find out exactly why it thinks the future is going to be negative. Write down the objections you get
  • 2) Handle the objections with logical arguments: Once you find those objections handle them with logical arguments that appeal to your subconscious mind. See How to negotiate with your subconscious mind
  • 3) Write a plan: A plan in such a case is a promise for change that you give to your subconscious mind. If your subconscious mind believed that your plan will change things to the better then your mood will change instantly even before doing anything
