Think Positive

        ''The secret of all power, all achievement and all possession depends upon our method of thinking.''

Positive thinking is a mental attitude that admits into the mind thoughts, words and images that are conductive to growth, expansion and success.It is a mental attitude that expects good and favorable results.

A positive mind anticipates happiness, joy, health and a successful outcome of every situation and action. Whatever the mind expects, it finds.

It is quite common to hear people say: "Think positive!", to someone who feels down and worried. Most people do not take these words seriously, as they do not know what they really mean, or do not consider them as useful and effective.Not everyone accepts or believes in positive thinking. Some consider the subject as just nonsense, and others scoff at people who believe and accept it.

The Bible is quoted "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is He.

The power of positive thinking is the one true power one have. This is the one principle of life that needs to be realized and put into action every day.

Ernest Holmes states in his book The Science of Mind, "We are living in an Intelligent Universe, which responds to our mental states. To the extent that we learn to control these mental states, we shall automatically control our environment." (The Science of Mind, page 139)
Holmes goes on to say: "In the great Universal Mind, man is a center of intelligence, and every time he thinks he sets Mind into action. Because of the Oneness of Mind, It cannot know anything outside Itself, and therefore cannot contradict any thought given It, but must reflect whatever is cast into It."

In order to turn the mind toward the positive, inner work and training are required. Attitude and thoughts do not change overnight.The power of thoughts is a mighty power that is always shaping our life. This shaping is usually done subconsciously, but it is possible to make the process a conscious one. Even if the idea seems strange give it a try, as you have nothing to lose, but only to gain.

Always visualize only favorable and beneficial situations. Use positive words in your inner dialogues or when talking with others. Smile a little more, as this helps to think positively. Disregard any feelings of laziness or a desire to quit. If you persevere, you will transform the way your mind thinks.

Once a negative thought enters your mind, you have to be aware of it and endeavor to replace it with a constructive one. The negative thought will try again to enter your mind, and then you have to replace it again with a positive one. It is as if there are two pictures in front of you, and you choose to look at one of them and disregard the other. Persistence will eventually teach your mind to think positively and ignore negative thoughts.

In case you feel any inner resistance when replacing negative thoughts with positive ones, do not give up, but keep looking only at the beneficial, good and happy thoughts in your mind.

It does not matter what your circumstances are at the present moment. Think positively, expect only favorable results and situations, and circumstances will change accordingly. It may take some time for the changes to take place, but eventually they do.

Every day you make choices, many choices. This is how you become an individual. You choose your friends, what you like to eat, what style clothes you want to wear, and so on.You also and most importantly have the choice of how you think about yourself and others.

Choose to make those thoughts positive ones and never underestimate the power of positive thinking.Positive self talk is an important part of living you best life now. Become more conscious of your thoughts make them positive ones and see a change for the better in your life.

Some Positive Thinking Quotes:

“The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible.”

''Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”

''A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”

‘’Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”

“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.”

“Instead of thinking about what you're missing, try thinking about what you have that everyone else is missing.”
