You become who you think you are
When you hold a picture of yourself in your mind’s eye, adding feelings to that image, you create corresponding beliefs. Your view of yourself is linked to that picture, especially when it’s repeated often enough. Of course, the image comes from somewhere. At first, there is an idea that you are a certain way, which has the potential to be fleeting. However, if you have a clear vision of yourself embodying all the qualities of the person you imagine, you forge a connection, which is why it’s important to have a healthy self-image.
See yourself happy to change your mind
You can generate a healthy image of yourself or an unhealthy one. How you see yourself isn’t necessarily who you are, but it’s how you feel about yourself, and it will influence your thoughts and behavior. See yourself happy, and you will carry out the behavior of a joyful person. You’ll recognize positivity because you are focusing on the sunnier aspects of life.
People with a poor self-image develop behavior to go along with what they imagine. Thinking they are no-good doesn’t make them no-good, but it might make them shy and retiring so they miss opportunities to thrive and be well. Likewise, you can’t magically see yourself happy and turn into someone jolly, but you can aid the recognition of the pathway to happiness.
As you repeatedly imagine you are feeling good, you’ll begin to create the mood you need to be happy in actuality. Without the right mindset, you can’t create any particular emotion. You can’t turn into a sad person, for instance, unless your mindset is aligned with the inclination to be sad. You might experience sadness, yes, but you won’t be a sad person. Therefore, if you want to be a joyful person, you can pave the way by seeing yourself happy.
Picture yourself in happiness
The easiest way to imagine yourself in a state of mental well-being is to picture yourself behaving contentedly. The you in your mind has to act like a happy person rather than strive for joy. See yourself carrying out positive behavior, dancing, and singing, jumping for joy, smiling, laughing, or skipping – whatever you like. Also, add positive feelings to the mind movie. Imagine what carrying out these actions feels like, then you’ll develop a cheerful mindset.
If you have trouble generating a glowing picture of yourself, as may be the case if you are unhappy, add uplifting music you enjoy with a quick beat. Put on your earphones and play the music while you create your new self-image.
See yourself happy, and you will steer your emotions and behavior toward joy. Don’t expect fast results if you’re very down or depressed when you begin, since changing your mind takes time. However, believe in the process and repeat it often, and your mindset will shift.
