Positive thinking is very crucial in our lives. It is in fact, our main reason why we are (or at least able to)escape the harsh reality. More than likely, it keeps us from being in a negative state of mind. It’s easier said than done to think positive “all the time”. However just because you’re in a precarious situation, doesn’t mean you should’nt look at the glass as half full. Everything is all about perspective. The more you have a positive mindset, the better your odds of having a wonderful day will be.
You have to be able to think and grow rich in your daily life in order to prosper. It’s always vital to be success conscious at all times. One of the few ways that’ll boost positive thinking is speaking affirmations in to the universe. The universe has multiple ways of giving you whatever it is that you desire. Inversely, it can give you the things that you dislike as well, the more times you repeat it. This is why you have to be careful of which words you say. Hence the term:
“Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it.”
The other beautiful thing about the power of positive thinking is the autosuggestion of positive thinking. What is autosuggestion? Its the hypnotic or subconscious adoption of an idea that one has originated oneself (e.g. through repitition of verbal statements to oneself in order to change behavior). Although the subconsicious is 90% of your brain, it doesn’t know the difference between what’s real or fake. The more times you repeat something, your subconscious would take that and it would put it out to the universe.
Think of all the successful people who had nothing in their humble upbringings. I’m pretty sure they had to understand the concept of positive thinking for them to be where they are in the present day. Similar to the sports athletes winning their first championship after facing adversities in their lives/careers. Even the ones who were successful in their careers but couldnt get over the mountain top of winning a championship. Unless they were out of their prime stages and joined another exciting team (For example; Gary Payton and Alonzo mourning on the 2006 Miami Heat team).
For the superstar players that stayed in the league for longevity without winning a championship,the things they can think positive of is entering the Hall of fame sooner of later in their lives. Come to think of it, its not bad at all being enshrined in the HOF because its a moment where everyone can remember the great times of your career. Most people can say they won a championship, however most people cant say they’re in the Hall of Fame.
The power of positive thinking is the light at the end of every tunnel. I’m not saying it can cure depression because nothing can cure depression. However, it can at least help bring happiness so that you don’t fall too deep into depression. You can hate your job, the people you’re around etc. Yet, put it this way; time moves a lot faster when you’re having fun. It prolongs when you think too much of the situation. Especially if you don’t want to be there. I’ve spent six years in the army and I’ve disliked about two thirds of that duration. When i did have fun, my monthly drill weekends went by pretty fast because I thought positive.
It got to the point where I had more fun at drill than I did in target. That’s how bad I hated target. I would’ve never thought I hated something more than drill weekends. Nonetheless, the power of positive thinking can take you a long way in life no matter the circumstances. Though you can’t meaure intangibles such as desire, faith, patience etc; you need to have a lot of these things to get you by in certain areas of your life. If you still don’t believe much about the power of positive thinking, keep this in mind:
The only limitations you’ll ever have are those that you place on yourself.
