The Law of Attraction isn't just a myth. Maybe people believe in the notion that if you put good energy and thoughts out into the universe on a daily basis, that is what you'll receive in return. Putting this into practice is easier said than done but that doesn't mean you can't give it a shot, especially if you've been down in the dumps lately or recognize that negative thinking has taken too strong of a hold in your life lately.
The steps it takes to improve one's mindset in order to think more positively doesn't produce results overnight. The greatest challenge with changing or improving mindset is that it takes time but requires constant effort on a regular basis. Below are just a few tips for ways to introduce more positive thinking into your life:

Evaluate & Identify Negativity
Organizing your thoughts is an effective way to identify the negative sources in your life. Doing this can be as simple as jotting down the things that bother you, make you angry and/or could otherwise ruin a perfectly good day. Don't over think this part, write down the first things that come to mind. Now review what you've written. Are there any trends or patterns? If so, find out what it is about those things that causes you to become so negative. Were there any common behaviors or actions that seem to always lead to those results? Then that means figuring out a way to tweak or change those behaviors or actions so that they produce better, more positive results.
For example, do you hate confrontation but constantly find yourself engaging in a heated debate or argument with a friend or loved one that leaves you feeling irritable, upset and downtrodden? The source of it might be something in the relationship you have with those certain individuals or something in their personality (or yours) that seems to keep adding fuel to the fire. Whatever it is, change it so that it doesn't continue to become a bad experience. Whether they means walking away or taking space from that person, try different methods to see if a different outcome happens.

When you can identify the change that needs to occur and see it as a step towards progress, you're already inviting the Law of Attraction to start working in your life.
