The Power of Positive Thinking & The Brighter Side
The power of positive thinking is really about seeing the glass half full, to when you believe in yourself, you really can succeed at anything your really want
Although you can see that the glass is half-empty, you can chose to see it in
a positive way. It is still half empty, but positive minded people with see
it half-full. That is the power of
positive thinking. The absence of half of the water didn’t bother
them, what mattered was that it still contains
If this is how you answered the question above and how you justified your answer, then you have a positive way of thinking.
Positive thinking is a way of looking at the brighter side of life.
Everything is good, beautiful, and light. There are no worries, problems,
or fears. In short, all you see and believe in is, well, positive. I guess
that’s already the most suitable word in describing this way of thinking,
which is why it is the term being used.
This kind of thinking is very powerful in that if you think that you are going to pass an exam, you are going to pass; if you think that you’ll get noticed by your crush, you’ll get noticed; if you think you will get promoted at work, then you’ll get promoted.
This is how powerful the mind is, particularly positive mind. Even the
famous Clint Eastwood believes in this general truth that he quoted, “If you
think it’s going to rain, it will.”
So, how does the power of positive thinking work?
How can it create reality? Do we only have to think of positive things and then will it happen right away? That positive thinking really is powerful may be somehow hard to believe at first, that’s why we may ask certain questions like those above. Because the mind is working on the information you send it, positive thinking can lead to positive reality.
Yes, we do have to really think of positive things
But it doesn’t stop there.
Remember the ever-famous cliché “Do your best and God will do the rest”?
You know, it’s true. Aside from believing in and having faith in
something we want to happen, we have to do something about it. You can’t ace
an exam just by sitting on the couch and watching TV days before taking it,
Let us take into account again the computer as a metaphor of the human
The mind is like a computer, this time due to the fact that we can program it with certain functions and tasks. Sometimes, it even acts as our autopilot.
For instance, we use it when we drive and talk on a mobile phone at the
same time. Therefore, we can program it with whatever we want to happen.
Say, for example, you want to be attractive. Thus, you say to yourself “I can be beautiful, healthy and slim.” But for this positive thinking to work, you can’t just leave it at that.
You still need to do something.
You need the right self-programming: “I can be beautiful, healthy, and
slim if… (a) I’ll take enough rest every night; (b) I’ll eat proper balance
diet; (c) I’ll do exercises; (d) I’ll brush my teeth every after meal; etc.”
And if all these thoughts sink into your system, you’ll see that they
wouldn’t be far from happening.
Mind power implies will power. With positive thinking, one does not stop
with I can or I am. There will always be an I will after it in which it will
cause the realization of his aspirations.
Positive thinking is a powerful tool that helps us build the life we
want. It can make us beautiful and smart.
It can get us the dream job with the excellent salary we always dreamed of.
It can help us find our one true love.
But we have to use them properly and we have to continue working with them regularly - to the point where it becomes such a habit that we ought to say them all the time.
Isn’t it better maintaining such thoughts than keeping worthless ideas inside our head – the stuff we keep thinking about but doesn't really help us accomplish anything and, in many cases, may actually push us backwards?
We should also understand that some affirmations take some time to take effect. It really depends on where we are and what we want to accomplish. For example, if you're unemployed yet want to be a millionaire, well, in reality, it will take quite some time.
You have to get a job first, and from there, start making the big money and earn the millions you want.
Successes usually not happen overnight.
So the first step in positive thinking is to focus on
how we can accomplish our goal. If we are on the right place, plus we
possess the right attitude, then it won’t be too far.
