Healthy Ageing Begins With Positive Thinking

Dec 3, 2007
It has been proven in a multitude of studies held in recent years that the value of positive thinking on our health is tantamount. The power of the human mind in fact controls how well we perform in all functions of our life.

How to think positive
Many people wander the earth believing they the lack the strength and power to achieve their goals. Sadly, it is this negative mechanism that holds them back. You can gain motivation and live an increasingly healthier life by simply telling yourself - I can do it. Anything you put your mind to can be achieved. As is often quoted, Thoughts Become Things. Desire it, Think it and Achieve it.

How to tell self I can do it
You have to be in control of your thoughts, actions, behaviours, etc by building your power of the mind. Nevertheless, if you do not put your mind to it and you decide that you do not want to take the necessary actions, then you are only living a life filled with shortcomings. Your negative reflections will defeat the purpose of getting your thoughts in control. Procrastinating or saying I will do it later, is another negative reflection. This procrastination leads to laziness. Laziness leads to weak minds and bodies which may gradually build up to medical problems. Fatigue, boredom, stress can result and we all know the outcome that these symptoms can cause. Simply tell yourself, I want this desire, I can have this desire and I will do what it takes to achieve this desire.

Take control of your thoughts. If you want something badly enough you will do what you have to do to get where you want to be. You need to make a goal and stick to it. Create plans that help you to reach your goals, and take action each day to achieve. Break your goal into tiny steps and reward yourself each step of the way to maintain your motivation. When you give up, it is a sign that you lack faith in yourself and therefore provides a clear indication of weakness. You need faith to stay strong and to stay on track to achieving your goal. As well, you need positive thinking to strive. Strive for success with positive thoughts and you will succeed.

Good results
Having a positive attitude will give you a jump start to a healthier life. Keep on pushing. Do not stop once you get started, but instead keep going until you finally reach your goal. When times get hard and you don't think you can go on just remember - I can do it. By affirming with positive affirmations, your head will stay up and your mind and heart will remain open. Don't dwell on something you can't change, rather focus on the things you have power to change.

How to continue positive living
To stay positive you have to admit your feelings and express them. If you feel depressed or frustrated, just say it aloud. But, don't stay there. Acknowledge your frustrations, accept them as a challenge, but then move forward. Any challenge you encounter can be turned into an opportunity, and is presented to you for you to eventually receive your higher purpose. Stay in control, express what you feel in the moment, thank that feeling for allowing you to find the strength required to overcome the challenge and then move on.

Many books, videos, dvds and messages are available to set your mind and your life in a positive direction. Use these tools if you need mentoring along your journey to instill positive thinking in your world.

Just remember you can achieve whatever you desire and keep your mind set for the good and positive things and not the negative. This will make you feel better and ultimately make you a happier person. If you are happy, you will have a healthier life. Don't forget to create a goal. Chunk your goal down into smaller steps and enjoy the rewards along the way.

Positive thinking will allow you to live the life you desire and provide you with absolute health and happiness.
