How To Rewire Your Brain To Think Positive


I am tired of dealing with negative thinking. Is it possible to rewire your brain to think positive instead of negative? And, if so, how can I rewire my brain to think positive thoughts?

In the next few minutes, you will learn the answers to these questions, and you will completely understand how you can rewire your brain to think positively. 

But, first things first: what are we even talking about, when we talk about rewiring our brains?

What is rewiring the brain to think positively all about?

Let's say that it is natural and normal for you to think negative thoughts, because your brain automatically generates this kind of negative thinking. 

And let's say you want to change this. Specifically, you want your brain to automatically generate positive thinking, so that it is natural and normal for you to think positive thoughts, instead. 

If you rewire your brain to think positively, all this means is that you have taken steps so that your brain automatically thinks positively instead of negatively. By taking these steps, positive thoughts are now your "default" way of thinking instead of negative thoughts.

As impressive as it is, that's all it means to rewire your brain for positivity.

Why start reprogramming the brain for positivity?

Just because you can rewire the brain to think positively, why do it?

Once you understand what negative thinking is and the effects of negative thinking on your life (like, making you feel bad and making you act in ways you dislike), it already becomes clear why rewiring your brain is a very beneficial thing to do. 

But just to fully appreciate the potential power of brain rewiring, and how it can transform your life, let's consider some examples of how reprogramming the mind can benefit you. 

Rewire your brain for happiness

For this example, let's say that it's normal and natural for you to feel bad and struggle with depression, due to constantly thinking negative thoughts. By rewiring your brain to think positively, you can make it normal and natural for you to feel happy, instead.

So, in this sense, you can learn how to rewire your brain for happiness.

Programming your mind for success​

Or, to consider another example, let's say you think in negative ways that sabotage you, make you less confident, and prevent you from achieving the things you want.

By rewiring your brain to think in positive ways that help you and make you more confident, you can find it much easier to achieve those things.

So, in this sense, you can learn how to rewire your brain for success.

Rewire your brain to stop bad habits

Or, let's say you're struggling with a behavior or a bad habit that you want to stop doing. If you want, you can rewire your brain to think in ways that make it easier for you to break bad habits. 

For example, if you're finding it difficult to stop smoking, you can reprogram your brain to think in ways that make it easier for you to become smoke-free.  

As you can see, the potential benefits for rewiring your brain for positivity are limitless. In general, though, the overall reason to do it is that your life improves in every way as a result.

How to rewire the brain to be positive

So, how do you do it? How can you rewire the brain to think positive?

For example, how do you rewire your brain so that you always see a glass as half full and never see it as half empty? 

Or, how do you reprogram your brain so that you always think 'I'm a great person' and never think 'I'm a loser'?

The answer to this question assumes that you already know how to think positive thoughts, as well as how to get rid of negative thoughts.

If you already understand all of this, use the following 4 steps to rewire your brain for positivity, so that you always think positively instead of negatively.

4 brain reprogramming steps

Click on each step to learn more about how to program your mind for positivity.


  1. Understand that you can simultaneously value positive and negative ways of thinking  

In his novel, 1984, George Orwell coined the term doublethink to describe "The power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them..."

This is a pretty good understanding of how your mind can simultaneously value positive and negative ways of thinking, and then use whichever way of thinking it wants at different times.

For example, you can value that a glass can be half full or half empty, and then use whichever perspective you want at any time.

Similarly, you can also value the thoughts 'I'm a great person' and 'I'm a loser', and think in these two different ways at any time.

So why does this matter, and what does it have to do with rewiring your brain to think positively?

Well, if you want to rewire your brain for positivity, this means you want to only think positively and never negatively. And simultaneously valuing positive and negative ways of thinking interferes with that.


  1. Understand that you are less consistent in the way you think, feel, and act when you simultaneously value positive and negative ways of thinking  

Why does it matter if you simultaneously value positive and negative ways of thinking, and then think in those different ways at different times?

For example, why does it matter if you sometimes see the glass as half full and other times see the glass as half empty? Why does it matter if you sometimes think of yourself as a great person, and other times think of yourself as a loser?

After all, aren't these all valid ways of thinking?

Well, sure. They're all opinions. They're all potentially valid.

But they have very different effects on your life.

With the more positive ways of thinking, you naturally tend to feel happier, more upbeat, more confident, and more energized. With the negative ways of thinking, you'll tend to feel down, be less confident, and be less energized.

So if you haphazardly use any way of thinking at any time, the way you feel and act will be much less predictable. Indeed, it will erratic.

This means you're a less stable, less reliable person. You're more prone to mood swings and volatility. You feel less secure, like everything could change at any moment, and you're less confident in yourself and your abilities.

To an outsider, you might seem like more of a 'crazy' person.

But if you were able to look inside your head, and see that your brain is just using whatever positive or negative way of thinking it feels like using at any time, you would see that this instability and erratic behavior is just a logical conclusion to that.


  1. Know without a doubt that you want to think, feel, and act in a positive way consistently: this means always seeing lots of value in positive thoughts and no value in negative thoughts  

The big question: do you want to be a consistently happier person? Do you want to consistently act in positive ways that benefit you?

Or, do you want to be less stable, and have no idea at all how you'll feel from one day to the next, or how you'll act from one day to the next?

If you're very clear that you want to stay happy consistently, and also consistently act in positive ways that benefit you, then it's very simple: always value positive ways of thinking that help you and always see no value in negative ways of thinking that work against you.


  1. When you change your thinking, always stop thinking a negative thought and start thinking a positive thought at the same time to rewire your brain for positivity  

If you start with a negative thought

For example, if you get rid of the negative thought 'I'm a loser', pick a relevant positive replacement thought like, 'I'm a great person', or 'I'm a winner'.

There are a few reasons for this.

First of all, even if your brain sees no value in the negative thought 'I'm a loser', if your mind doesn't know of a different way to think, then the negative thought will remain its 'default' way of thinking until it knows of a better way to think.

Also, there are times when your mind might know of other ways to think, but they aren't all that great. For example, instead of 'I'm a loser', your mind might start thinking 'I'm not that bad'. 

Certainly, 'I'm not that bad' is a better way of thinking than 'I'm a loser', but it's still not a strong, positive way to think that makes you much happier and much more confident.

And, of course, the name of the game here is to rewire your brain for positivity, not for some other random thought that's not that great. 

If you start with a positive thought

If you start thinking a positive thought like 'I have a lot of things going for me', pick a relevant competing negative thought to eliminate, like 'I don't have a lot going for me'.

Here's why: as you've learned, your brain can simultaneously value positive and negative ways of thinking.

So even if your brain sometimes uses the positive thought 'I have a lot of things going for me' it can still sometimes use the negative thought 'I don't have a lot going for me'.

With this scenario, your brain is not wired for positivity yet. Instead, it's wired to sometimes think positively and sometimes think negatively.

And this is why you sometimes 'mysteriously' think a negative thought like 'I don't have a lot of things going for me' even though you also believe 'I have a lot of things going for me'.

The lesson: whenever you start thinking a positive thought, always eliminate a competing negative way of thinking.

This rewires your brain for positivity, and enables you to always think a positive thought like 'I have a lot of things going for me' and never think a negative thought like 'I don't have a lot of things going for me'.

Once you complete each of these steps, you have rewired your brain for positivity, and you have also simplified your thinking process in a beneficial way.

This is because instead of wasting any time considering a possible negative way to think, your brain only considers and uses a positive way to think.

For example, after going through these steps, 'The glass is half full' and 'The glass is half empty' aren't two possibilities in your mind. For you, 'The glass is half full' is the only option, since it's the only direction your mind naturally goes in.

Even if someone points out to you that you can see the glass as half empty, your reaction is: so what? You simply don't see it that way.

Similarly, after going through these steps, 'I'm a great person', and 'I'm a loser' aren't ever two possibilities that your mind considers. For you, 'I'm a great person' is the only option your mind ever considers and uses.

And even if someone calls you a loser, there's not even a second that you consider the possibility of thinking of yourself that way.

That's simply someone else's way of thinking; not yours. (At least, not anymore).

  1. How long does it take to rewire the brain for positivity?  

Once you have completed each of the mind reprogramming steps you just learned, you have successfully rewired your brain for positivity.

After all, this thoroughness ensures that you will consistently think positively rather than negatively.

So how long does it take to go through all these  brain reprogramming steps and replace a negative thought like 'I'm a loser' with a positive thought like 'I'm a great person'?

If you use the Positive Thinking Tool to walk through each of these steps, you can easily rewire your brain to think positively in 5 minutes or less.

It's reprogramming your mind made easy: try it for yourself and see.


  1. How do you reprogram the subconscious mind?  

Believe it or not, you have already learned how to rewire your subconscious mind.

This is because when you follow the steps for reprogramming your mind to think more positively, you are reprogramming your subconscious mind. 

Indeed, you are reprogramming the subconscious mind in a very powerful, deliberate way.

After all, you are making positive changes in your thinking on a very deep level, so that it simply becomes a part of the way you think about things, without even being consciously aware of it.

For example, if you've rewired your brain to automatically think 'I'm a great person' rather than 'I'm a loser', you're naturally happier with yourself, even when you're not consciously thinking about what a great person you are.

This means that this type of thinking has simply become part of your 'fabric' due to how the subconscious mind works; it is something that affects you in a positive way all the time, even if you're not consciously aware of it anymore.

  • If you're interested in what types of subconscious thoughts you have, then you can do things to become more aware of your subconscious mind power
  • For example, some people practice mindfulness, which is basically the idea of becoming more aware of the different types of thoughts you have and how they affect you
  • Now, some people turn to mindfulness in an effort to become aware of their subconscious thoughts and to rewire their brains for positivity, but can mindfulness really rewire the brain?
  • See more
  • Remember: the key to rewiring your brain is to deliberately take action to elminate negative thoughts and to think positive thoughts instead
  • Mindfulness or meditation might make you aware of the different types of thoughts you're having, but rewiring your brain is about what you actually do with those thoughts
  • In other words, mindfulness might help make you aware of your subconscious mind power, but being aware of your subconscious thoughts is different than actually reprogramming the subconscious mind to think in a different way moving forward
  • See more
  • The overall lesson: awareness of the power of subconscious mind and reprogramming subconscious thoughts are two completely different things
  • Yes, it's certainly helpful to become aware of subconscious negative thoughts, so that you can eliminate them and replace them with more positive thoughts to immediately improve your life...
  • But that's the thing: you've still got to take action to make this kind of a change. Just being 'aware' of the thoughts isn't enough to create the change in your subconscious mind.

  1. What is the difference between brain training and brain rewiring?  

It is in your best interest to focus on rewiring your brain for positivity, rather than focusing on how to train your brain to think positive.

The reason for this is that rewiring your brain is faster, easier, and more effective than training your brain.

Think about it: if you're training your brain to be more positive, this means you're doing things like repeating positive affirmations to yourself over and over until these positive thoughts become more natural to you.

Or, maybe you're trying to listen to a recording of positive thoughts over and over until your mind finally accepts them.

Now, can this kind of repetition get you to finally think more positively?

Well, sure. It's possible.

But here's the thing: even if training your mind like this finally gets you to think more positively, it's a very slow process, especially since you're relying on hearing or saying the same thing over and over in order for it to sink in.

Also, you're not doing anything to eliminate competing negative ways of thinking, which means you'll sometimes think positively and sometimes think negatively.

On the other hand, with the brain reprogramming techniques you've just learned and some help from the Positive Thinking Tool, you can achieve the positive change in thinking you want in 5 minutes.

That's how powerful, fast, and easy it is.

So it's a no-brainer: reprogramming your brain is how to improve your brain in the fastest, easiest, and most effective way possible.

  • Some people try to increase the power of the subconscious mind with subconscious mind training techniques like listening to recordings of positive thoughts while in a relaxed state
  • Basically, this is a form of hypnosis (self-hypnosis), where a person puts himself in a more relaxed, peaceful state in order to be more receptive to the positive affirmations he hears
  • Although this is one of those subconscious mind power techniques or secrets that is supposed to help you instantly transform your life, how effective do you think it is, if you have to keep listening to the same thoughts over and over until you hopefully one day believe and accept them?
  • See more
  • Just as brain rewiring is superior to brain training, subconscious mind programming techniques are superior to subconscious mind training techniques that rely on you listening to positive thoughts repeatedly
  • Remember, once you go through the brain reprogramming steps you've learned, you've also reprogrammed your subconscious mind; so this is how to reprogram your subconscious mind in a conscious, deliberate way that gives you far more power and flexibility
  • After all, with this method you're not rewiring your brain in a way that some other person sees fit; instead, you're using the power of your mind to change your own thinking however you see fit
  • See more
  • So this is how to program your subconscious mind and how to increase mind power in a way that gives you the best results you could possibly hope for
  • Indeed, it's how to use your subconscious mind power to achieve whatever you want faster and easier
  • The overall lesson: once you learn how to change your brain by reprogramming it to think however you want, the idea of training your brain or your subconscious mind becomes an outdated and less efficient way to increase your power of mind
