A lot of people are very skeptical about positive thinking because they have tried it in the past and did not see any real improvement in their lives.
Those who dismiss positive thinking are in fact right about one thing - Positive thinking alone will NOT change your life.
The truth is that there are no magical genies waiting to make your dreams come true just because you maintain a positive attitude.
This does not however mean that positive thinking is a waste of time. On the contrary, positive thinking is the first step of a powerful process that can
and will change your life if you choose to apply it.
Here is the truth about positive thinking...
Positive thinking is only effective when it inspires you to take positive action towards achieving your goals. Over time, repeated positive action becomes a positive habit and it is these habits that will bring you the positive results you desire.
The main reason people become disillusioned with positive thinking is because they mistakenly expect positive thoughts to lead directly to positive results. When things don't improve, they then dismiss the concept of positive thinking entirely. This is a big mistake.
Once, you understand that positive thinking is the first step of a powerful four step process, you will discover that the true benefit of positive
thinking is that it gives you the impetus to take action.
1. Visualize your goals each day and fill your mind with a positive image of the outcomes you want to achieve.
2. Use these positive thoughts as a springboard to take action.
3. Understand that repeated action becomes a habit.
4. Establish the habits that will lead you to achieve your most important life goals.
Positive thinking should also be supplemented with "Positve Living" in which one's own life should become more organized. The surroundings in which one lives should also be organized in a favorable way... The traditional teachings of Vaastu and Fengshui also proclaim the importance of organizing the home and of the office in a healthy and positive way... after eliminating all clutter and all unwanted things in our day to day lives. These measures will in turn bring about a positive stimulus to the mind. The favorable and positive mental state will help a great way in succeeding in the game of life.
" JOY IS IN US... AND NOT IN THE THINGS AROUND!"
