The benefits of positive thinking have been well-known for a long time now.
Even if you laugh it off and dismiss it as a scam, you know it’s the truth.
It’s a given that you’ll be able to get out of bed tomorrow morning, right?
The phrase “there’s light at the end of the tunnel” is one that we’ve all heard and used at some point in our lives, right?
Is it possible that after this life is done, you’ll be in a better place?
Isn’t this also a form of positive thinking, in your opinion?
While you mightn’t believe some of the hype or teachings of a guru that came seem far fetched or airy fairy but deep down you do feel that there is something there working for you and guiding you in your life.
In his book The Power of Positive Thinking, Norman Vincent Peale argues that religion and positive thinking go hand in hand.
“Positive thinking,” as described by Peale could be broken down into a three step process of practicing repeated self-hypnosis, attaining “divine” or God’s power to use for oneself, and eliminating and avoiding all negativity in life.
When you believe in something, you can achieve it, according to Peale’s definition of positive thinking.
Thoughts of positivity are basically just the power of faith combined with your deeds.
The most powerful scientific law ever known, the Law of Attraction, is also employed.
You get more of what you focus on in your life.
Thoughts are the source of your strength.
But the thing is you have to be in control of them instead of then being in charge of you.
Even professionals and business people use the power of positive thought to develop personal power or gain a competitive edge over the marketplace. Take example Richard Branson and all the many businesses he has. How would you say he thinks everyday “Positive” or “Negative”?
Do you think someone like him just sits in the corner sucking his thumb thinking negatively wondering if his new idea is going to work? Or does he just go for it with a positive attitude?
Now you may think that he because he’s successful now he can afford to make mistakes and it won’t matter. But how did he and other people get to the top when they started off with nothing?
Because all they had in the beginning was positive thinking to get the momentum going. Nothing, but them and their thoughts.
You may be thinking that all sounds so easy, so why isn’t everyone doing it. But the thing is when we’re surrounded by TV, movies and other things pumping all the negative things to us.
It’s easy to take all this is and think the worlds going to hell in a handcart and start thinking negatively.
How can you be more positive today?
Try to constantly fill your mind with positive powerful thoughts. The power of thoughts is a mighty power that is always shaping our life whether you want it to or not.
Negative thoughts just chip away at your self-esteem leaving you feeling vulnerable, powerless, and susceptible to yet more negative thinking and this brings you further and further down.
Remember people always appreciate being around a positive person nobody wants to be around a complainer and a negative thinker.
Deep down we know that’s not the way we were meant to be and positive thinking can help you (and them!)
