The Power Of Positive Thinking
Let’s talk about the power of positive thinking. Many people think of it as some occult “mumbo-jumbo.” Personally, I believe that having a “glass half-full” attitude is what makes people move forward, even if life has dealt them a bad hand of cards.
Optimism is a matter of choice, belief and training. Some people find it through religion, others after reading a book or watching an inspirational movie (You can learn more about this topic here: How To Be An Optimist).
How To Make Positive Thinking Work?
1) Make an effort to believe. You have nothing to lose if you fail, and so much to win if it works.
2) Don’t tell anyone about your plans. You don’t need anyone to discourage you and make a joke out of your beliefs.
3) Use your imagination to visualize a positive outcome. Picture in your mind the completed task, and how happy you will be after successfully finishing it.
4) When visualizing your positive future, don’t forget to smile.
5) Don’t lose faith. As Steve Jobs pointed out in his famous speech (More about it here: Never Stop Pursuing Your Dreams), you can’t connect the dots looking forward; only when looking back we notice how our lives have changed.
6) When bad things happen, see it as a sign. For example, if your girlfriend (or boyfriend) cheated on you, you could interpret this betrayal as a wakeup call from the universe, telling you that there is someone out there who is more suitable for you.
7) Do something that makes you happy (Read more about it here: How To Find Your Passion).
8) Almost every problem has more than one solution. That’s why you shouldn’t stick to a “good enough” choice; instead, take some reasonable time to find a better alternative. Read more about it here:
