The Way I See It: I would like to share the below article written by Ann Chastain, Michigan State University Extension with you. The article gives simple steps you can do on a daily basis to help you think positively.

From my personal experience it’s hard at the beginning to maintain focused on what language we use and where our train of thoughts is taking us. You will be surprise how a little memory, a word or a small gesture can evolve in our minds creating such a negative image/thought. This is when the danger comes; not from the initial small thought but from how it gets stronger and stronger in our minds creating such a powerful negative vibration attracting more negativity to our lives. Many times we can literally create the worst case scenario we were thinking about! This is how powerful our negative thoughts can be.

Step by step you will get use NOT to use the negative affirmation in your language. You will get use to monitor your thoughts and deliberately make this small effort to stop them and switch them to positive ones. Positive thinking (even when everything around you tells to think differently) can REALLY REALLY not only change your life but most importantly how you see and visualize your OWN life. Think positively, relax and watch what you can manifest! Happy Positive Thinking🙂

You may not think so, but regular positive thinking will help you deal with daily challenges of life more smoothly, and will lead the future to be brighter and more promising.

Positive thinking is contagious. People around you detect your mental moods and are affected accordingly. Think about happiness, good health and success and people will more likely appreciate you and want to be around you, because they enjoy the atmosphere that a positive attitude produces.

In order for positive thinking to produce results, you need to develop a positive attitude toward life, expect a successful outcome of whatever you do and take action to do what is necessary to ensure your success.

Effective positive thinking that brings results is much more than just repeating a few positive words or telling yourself that everything is going to be all right. It has to be your primary mental attitude. It is not enough to think positively for a few moments, and then letting fears and lack of belief enter your mind. Some effort and inner work are necessary.

Are you really willing to change the way you think, to make a real inner change? Are you willing to develop a mental power that can positively affect you, your environment and the people around you?

Here are a few actions and suggestions to help you develop the power of positive thinking:

  • Stop with your negative attitude and speaking negative words about everything you talk about!
  • Use positive words while thinking and talking. Use phrases like, “I can,” “I am able,” “It is possible,” “It can be done,” etc.
  • Actively focus on thoughts of success, strength and happiness.
  • Try to disregard and ignore negative thoughts. Refuse to think such thoughts and substitute them with constructive good ideas.
  • In your conversation use words that suggest feelings and mental images of strength, happiness and success.
  • Before starting with any plan or action, visualize clearly in your mind its successful outcome.
  • Read at least one page of an inspiring book every day.
  • Surround yourself with people who think positively.
  • Watch movies that make you happy.
  • Sit and walk with your back straight. This will strengthen your confidence and inner strength.
  • Walk, swim or get moving in some other physical activity. This helps to develop a more positive attitude.

Think positive and expect favorable results and situations, even if your current situation is not what you want for the long term. In time, your positive mental attitude will help you to position your life situations and change them for the better.

    It’s amazing how much of a difference positive thinking can make. It can change entire outcomes, and ultimately change the direction one’s life is moving in. In my opinion, it’s opening the doorway to allow God to do miracles in our lives. I appreciate this article and the excellent reminders it provides : )

    Smart bird. Bread is poor for birds, esp. in cold weather.

    Thanks for the sensible critique. Me & my cousin were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a book from our area library but I think I learned more from this post. I am very glad to see such great information being shared freely out there.
