It’s just very discouraging when everything is a mess. Not in a literal way, but figuratively when your thoughts and perceptions are disorganized. Your schedule gets out of whack, you can’t study for your exams, you can’t cope with your chores and you’re gaining weight and can’t find the time to exercise. Worse, you’ve been having a squabble with your BFF. How do you sort these erratic vibrations out and allow things to fall into place?

The secret to being organized, energized and happy is to think positively. There is more power to positive thinking than you realize. Other than clearing the clutter of your mind, it makes you exude confidence- and that comes from within. Because of the inner power inculcated by positive thinking, you become more in-control- of your thoughts, emotions and whatever endeavors. Your life will simply get better. Keeping an optimistic attitude permits you to pull it all together, thereby keeping you in track for success.

As a student, how can you use the power of positive thinking to reach your goals and make the most of your academic life? Here are some tips to guide you.

Take full advantage of where you are currently at. Let a good dose of rain and sunshine in and grow where you have been planted. Nurture positive relationships by volunteering, participating in clubs and helping your friends. These will allow you to grow deeper roots for the future.

Don’t be too hard on yourself, especially if you have made mistakes. Erring is human, so don’t be discouraged if you’ve committed some blunders. Let it go- don’t wallow too much in it and look for ways to improve next time. Thinking positively breaks down the walls of failure and encourages you to be proactive. It makes you feel more motivated rather than give up.

Ask for help from people you can trust. Accept the fact that you don’t know everything. There is so much to learn not only about academics, but life as well. That’s why you are in school. Reach out to your teachers and peers. It will bring you an optimistic attitude. See things from various perspectives by learning from others. Fresh ways of looking at situations will present you with different options and opportunities as you cope with the difficult events in your life.

Stay away from needless conflicts. These things are bound to happen in one way or another. You go through disagreements with your peers or scuffles with your siblings or roommates. Consider that every individual differs from one another. Keeping a positive mindset can diffuse these conflicts and skirmishes. Your positivity will hearten you to openly communicate with the persons concerned. You’ll learn to accept and respect their opinions as you stand your ground. Keep the peace by encouraging open discussions that are proactive and non-judgmental.

Don’t base your worth on your grades. Many students think that their grades directly reflect who they are. Do away from this notion because at some points, every student receives grades that are disappointing. Don’t think of giving up when this happens to you. If you stay positive, you’ll be able to keep your focus and prevent yourself from being depressed. It will help you keep a single-minded approach in achieving your goals and acknowledge the fact that you’re a student who yet needs to grow and learn.

Practice effective time-management. Optimize every minute that is in your hands. Remember that time, when gone, cannot be taken back. Your studies ought to be your priority, but you have to learn to be well-rounded. As you tackle your subjects in school, balance it with your social life. Plan your study schedule accordingly, but allocate ample moments for yourself and the things that you enjoy as well. In your daily routine, incorporate mental health breaks, and more importantly, sufficient “me” time.

Be patient with yourself and others. This isn’t as easy as it sounds, but be considerate because everybody is in a different place emotionally, academically and life in general. As a person with a positive attitude, you should take into account to be mindful of where other people are in their lives.

One of the best gifts that you can give to yourself is positive thinking. Breathe it in and let positivity dwell in your being. Positive thinking has an inherent power to bring positive results in your life as a person, as a student and as a learner of how the way things are.
