Positive Thinking As a Way to Succeed

Oct 25, 2007
The power of positive thinking is not just a mantra for feel good gurus to chant. It really is a way that you can reach any goal that you set your mind to achieving. Goal setting can be hard for those who procrastinate, but having a real plan that you can act on, along with the power of positive thinking is a concrete way you can have the life that you think you deserve.

There are many people who don't believe that positive thinking can help you attain goals. Even if you believe in positive thinking, you may not know how to use it to your best advantage. There are methods and techniques you can use in order to make positive thinking not only a regular way of life, but help you reach those goals you have set even quicker.

Have you ever stopped to think what positive thinking really means? It is more than just something to say when someone is feeling down and depressed. Positive thinking is a whole new way of thinking that has to involve the subconscious mind as well. Even if you tell yourself, you are thinking and acting positively, your subconscious mind will know if you are telling the truth. You need to really convince yourself of positive thinking, and include everything in your life. Not only will you reap benefits from your personal life and your career, but you will enjoy the health benefits of positive thinking as well.

Those who are suffering from debilitating diseases such as cancer and other life threatening conditions, enhance the quality of their lives and the time they have left with positive thinking. They have convinced their subconscious mind that they can stay well, and many people do. When you utilize positive thinking in your life, your blood pressure may drop and you may find that you engage in less stressful behaviors than you did before.

The law of attraction is said that when you do good things and have positive thinking, good things will come back to you. The same can be said of negativity. When you base your life thinking of the worst things that could happen, instead of the positive aspects of a situation, you are wasting valuable time that could be better spent living your life.

When you apply the principles of positive thinking to your life, you will be amazed at the things you can accomplish. It is said that if you picture something often enough it can come true. What many people do to convince their subconscious mind of something is setting up a wish or dream board. This is a board where you will put your goals down in actual pictures. If you want to own a boat, put pictures of the boat you want out with pictures of you and your family out enjoying the water. With Photoshop and other technological tools this can be easy. It can also be fun is a great way to begin your positive thinking routine.

Use this board as a reminder of what you are trying to achieve. Spend a few minutes a day, each and everyday, visualizing in your head you actually doing whatever it is you want to achieve. Look at the picture and tell your subconscious mind that you are doing it, and before you know it, you will actually be living the pictures in your subconscious mind that you have put up on your wish/dream board.

Filling your mind with negative thoughts never got anyone anywhere. When you put your mind to it and apply the principles of positive thinking, you can do anything. If you are going on a job interview, you tell yourself you will be an asset to the company, and you are more than qualified for the job, your subconscious mind will believe you and your confidence in yourself and your abilities will be more than apparent to prospective employers.

The same can be said about just about every area of your life. Instead of dwelling on disaster, fill your mind with the best that can happen. You may find yourself disappointed at first, but winners never give up. Those who succeed in this world in business and in their personal relationships are always using positive thinking. They truly believe in the law of attraction; good things will come to those who think they deserve it.
