The incredible Power Of Positive Thinking

“Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.” 
Roy T. Bennett

What can the power of positive thinking do for you? Just imagine all your hopes, all your dreams, and all your visions becoming a reality!

Most people live their lives in quiet desperation with negativity as their soulmate. You can’t have what you want if you are always pushing it away. Instead, it’s all about bringing the goodness and the love that is all around and living with a positive mindset.

You can accomplish everything you want but you have to take positive action on those positive thoughts. Nothing comes that easy but when you practice being and living a positive lifestyle, a whole new world opens up and you can bring happiness back into your life.

Many of the celebrities started out from the bottom and worked their way up. Nothing came easy but they believed in themselves and used positive thinking to get where they wanted to go.  They made their dreams a reality because it was real in their minds.

In this article, I’m going to help you get to where you want by teaching you how to have a positive mindset and how to take positive action to make your hopes and dreams a reality for you. The idea here is to access the power of positive thinking and begin to manifest the kind of life you’ve always imagined having. It’s sitting right in front of you but you have to be strong enough to take it.

Mind Control – The True Power Of Positive Thinking

“There is a basic law that like attracts like. Negative thinking definitely attracts negative results. Conversely, if a person habitually thinks optimistically and hopefully, his positive thinking sets in motion creative forces, and success instead of eluding him flows toward him.”
 Norman Vincent Peale 

For centuries, people have used the power of positive thinking to improve their lives, get what they want and make a big impact on the world. In this video, here are the reasons why controlling the thoughts you have can change your life for the better and harness the power of positive thinking.

According to Steve Maxwell, there are 17 ideas that govern mind control. He takes a stance on why fear and thought go hand in and how you can break them.

1- Fear in general is all a big lie. It’s something manufactured and you must look at fear from a different perspective. Fear has been given a power it was never meant to have. You must seize the power back and take a stance on where and how you deal with fear.

2- Fear has no control over you if you can control your thoughts. Control what comes in and how you perceive those thoughts. Control how you act on them as well as know where they are coming from. You biggest area of strength and power is awareness. The more aware of what your mind is doing, the easier it is to control those thoughts and actions.

3- Every thought that enters our minds doesn’t just come from us but outside stimulation. The collective outside is influencing what we think, what we feel and how we act. Understand this and give yourself the power to be yourself. You are an individual and the power that outside influences have need not apply if you live and exercise your right of free thought. Just because others think a certain way doesn’t mean they are right. You have freedom of choice make sure you use it.

4- The world is full of fear. Everyone is scared and paranoid at the next calamity or catastrophe about to happen. Terrorism, social media and mainstream media influence and touch those inner fears by scaring you with thoughts of loss… loss of your job, your freedoms, your rights and even your loved ones. The more you allow negative thoughts and negative vibrations to overtake your positive nature, the more fear will tighten its grip on you. The media loves to scare its citizens yet , if you understand why, then you don’t have to be fearful of anything anymore.

5- Stop thinking and listening to all these outside influences. They have no control over you unless you let them. Stop thinking of all the things you don’t want to happen and start concentrating on the good things, the positive things you want for yourself and your family. bad things happen when you set the table for them. Instead of fearing the future, embrace what you don’t know, see, hear or understand and let knowledge be both your guide and your teacher.This way, you will have nothing to fear.

6- Stop worrying as if worry will change your circumstances. Those negative thoughts will manifest themselves in our everyday lives with negative consequences. In Matthew 6:25-27, we see what worry will do for us. “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” 

7- The idea is to concentrate on controlling what comes into your mind. If it is negative in origin, understand that it has no control over you and let it pass.

8- When you control your thoughts with positive energy, you can manifest anything you want. You need to learn how to harness that powerful bundle of energy. Why? Because the power of thought can take you anywhere you want to go. It is what success is built upon. It is how transformation happens. It is where you seperate the the doers from the talkers.

9- Positive thoughts have the capacity to bring good events and good circumstances as well as good people into our lives. You have the power to influence what happens to you by the power of your thoughts. Hope is based on positive thinking and positive reinforcement for each circumstance that happens. When you hope for the best, you are putting positive vibrations into the air. This why you can influence life and manifest anything you want if you live with positive energy.

10- For every negative thought, replace it with 2-3 positive thoughts. Overwhelm the negative thoughts until they can’t control you. The benefit comes in forming a good habit of always having positive thoughts. What is even better is using those positive thoughts and taking focused action that brings good things into your life. Overload and overwhelm the negative thoughts to such a degree that positivity rules the day.

11- It is the universal Law of Attraction. You attract the energy you put in. Einstein once said that energy cannot be created or destroyed. That is why you must control it so it works for you instead of against you. Attract good energy wherever you go. Get in the habit of attracting good things, good people and good situations into your life. Only then will success and happiness follow you through life.

12- Whatever you are thinking of or concentrating on is like putting in an order to the universe. With that thought you are asking for it to happen. The more negative it is, the worse the outcome and the more positive the thought is, the better the outcome. There is no such thing as a return with the universe. You get what you put into it so be wise and only put in positive energy. Remember, all that negative energy is like a huge weight that keeps getting heavier until it wears you down and you can’t function anymore.

13- As thoughts enter your mind, you have to weed out the bad and cultivate the good. Think of every thought and its consequences on your life. Once you understand this, you can consciously and subconsciously affect the outcomes of events in your daily occurrences. Be like the farmer that tends his field. prune the bad and allow the good to flourish. If you allow the weeds to grow they will suck the life out of you and you will not be able to have a good harvest.

14- Understand the awesome power of the spoken word and why is can have such an effect on others. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Your words determine the trust others have for you and how people ultimately treat you. Words are like daggers. They can hurt even the strongest among us. Allow your words to penetrate with love and care. Even if you do not like someone, do not talk badly about them because words are energy. They can and will travel right to that person. Let your words be the water that nourishes the world at large.

15- Always watch what you say because the next step beyond thought are words and you give energy to that thought when you speak them whether in public or private. Relegate those thoughts to the trash and give only your positive thoughts reason to grow. Try to only speak when you have something positive to add and learn to listen more. Knowledge comes from listening to others not teaching the learned.

16- Energy is the basis for all thought and action. Take that energy and put it to good use. Find ways to give back to others as well as the world where you are creating beauty and love instead of hate and cancer.

17- God is the source of all energy and his love is eternal. His unconditional love is pure energy. It is full of positivity and when you access this energy, God can work wonders in your life. No matter where you are not God can use you to make the world a better place to live and work in. in Isaiah 64:8 we are told, “Yet you, LORD, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.” Allow God to mold you like clay so that you become a positive force for love and care.

Positive Thinking Is a Way of Life

“Affirmations are our mental vitamins, providing the supplementary positive thoughts we need to balance the barrage of negative events and thoughts we experience daily.” 
Tia Walker 

Each and every one of us has the choice to live either with a positive or negative mindset. How we live is  contagious if it positive. The more negative you are the more you push others away.

According to Remez Sasson,“People are more disposed to help us, if we are positive, and they dislike and avoid anyone broadcasting negativity. Negative thoughts, words and attitude, create negative and unhappy feelings, moods and behavior. When the mind is negative, poisons are released into the blood, which cause more unhappiness and negativity. This is the way to failure, frustration and disappointment.”

Brian Tracy, the dean of modern positive thinking asks this one question: “Can you guess what the most successful and happy people think about all day long?

The answer is quite simple…

Healthy, happy people think about what they want, and how to get it, most of the time. In this way developing a positive attitude can truly change your entire life.”

What are you thinking about all day long?

Your problems, your bills, maybe even the negatives from past? This is a prescription for unhappiness.

Brian goes on to say, “When you think and talk about what you want and how to get it, you feel happier and in greater control of your life. When you think about something that makes you happy, your brain actually releases endorphins, which give you a generalized feeling of well-being. As a result, you develop a positive attitude.”

Living with a positive mindset is an attitude. One that takes training, motivation and time. Most people think they can just be positive and that covers it all but it goes way beyond just thinking positively. You must make it your life’s work. Just as a painter or sculptor makes it their life’s work always trying for perfection we must follow their example.

Be positive and make it count. Follow through and you will see big changes in your life. That terrible attitude that has been holding you back will fall to pieces when you allow positive thoughts to rule your mind. Good things will start to happen and it will be like a tidal wave that takes over your life.

Ride the wave and see it through. You won’t regret it.

In part 2 we will delve into the idea that  self-talk creates its own reality and how to change your reality with positive thinking.

Let’s take positive thinking to the next level.

How Thinking Positive Leads To Positive Success

How Thinking Positive Leads To Positive Success

  1. “The more positive thoughts you have, the better you feel, which causes you to have more positive thoughts, then you feel even better.”
    James Borg

Your mind is a powerful tool and when used for good, it can create great success in your lifetime.  If you want to achieve your goals, remaining positive during the tough times is a must.  Those that can harness the power of positive thinking create the strategies to become a success in all areas of life.

Anyone who wants to be successful needs an edge and having the proper mindset gives you that confidence to become an overachiever.  Whether you are an athlete, student, business leader, teacher or just starting out in life, learning how to think positively is your secret weapon to get ahead.

Success is just a state of mind but you need help along the way.  There are three bible verses that show that God is there to help you to become the success you want to be.

  1. Philippians 4:13, “I can do everything through him that gives me strength.”
  2. Psalm 37:4, “Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.”
  3. Proverbs 16:3, “Commit to the Lord whatever you do and your plans will succeed.”

God has given us a great mind to reason out and to make wise choices with our lives.  What you think about you become.  Those that wallow in negativity will forever be stuck in the cement of their negative thought patterns but to those that remain positive no matter the situation, they are the people who are tested by fire and become strong in their determination.

We have a loving God who wants the best for us but if we don’t believe in HIS love, we are lost.  We need to see the bigger picture in our lives and remaining positive during times of trouble is when faith takes over.

“Always Focus On Thinking Positive

“A major factor in determining how our lives turn out is the way we choose to think. Everything that goes on inside the human mind in the form of thoughts, ideas, and information forms our personal philosophy.”
Jim Rohn

Life can be tough at times and how we deal with it says a lot about how successful we ultimately become.  If we complain and see ourselves as the victim we will never amount to anything of substance. Our hearts and minds takes us where we want to go.  Start using positive words in your conversations with others and be the kind of person that lifts the spirits of those who are down.  Keeping everything positive brings good karma to every situation and allows you to see the good in the world.

Ever been around negative people?  They are such a bore and bring everyone down who they come in contact with.  Physically they can drain the energy right out of you.  Instead, be generous with your how you treat others.  Encourage and support others, whether it’s your work colleagues, friends or family and you create an atmosphere of love and positive vibrations. Successful people stay motivated because they make good use of their environment by changing other people’s state of mind.

Using creative visualise techniques is a great way set up a positive future.  No matter how hard your life is right now don’t waste time complaining about it. Instead, visualise a future that you want for yourself. See yourself with a better-paying job, a house with a loving family, and a life filled with love and security. What happens to you now doesn’t have to be a predictor of how your future will end up. Positive thinking will help you achieve your goal of that better future.

How To Make Thinking Positive Work For You

We all have unlimited potential. The key to unlocking this infinite potential is by using our minds to think in a positive manner instead of dwelling on negative feelings.  New research has revealed that positive thoughts actually create genuine value in your life and  help you build real world skills that impact your work, your overall health, and your attitudes.

When you focus on the negative aspect of life, your emotions prevent your brain from making wise choices about the things around you.  You get stuck in survival instinct and you close off the logical side of your brain.  But when you activate the positive emotions inside your brain which allow you to see the vast possibilities that life has to offer.  Joy contentment and love bring about powerful changes in attitude, emotions and confidence.

According to Barbara Fredrickson, a positive psychology researcher at the University of North Carolina, claims that the “Broaden and Build” theory of positive thinking  (You broaden your possibilities that opens your mind, which allows you to build new skills and that provide value in other parts of your life).

Why Happiness Brings Out The Power Of Positive Thinking

“No matter where you work or live or what occupation you engage in negative or undermining forces are constant. But, you have been armed with positive thinking that permeates each and very thorny bush within the garden of life.”
Catherine Pulsifer

Happiness plays a big role in success.  The happier we are the more positive we become.  They go together to build the skills we need for success.  Our  attitudes have an enormous effect on who we become.

Here are five ways we can make positive thinking work in our lives.

  1. Take responsibility for your actions –  When you take responsibility everything comes down to you.  Be responsible for you and you alone.  Whatever someone else does do not tie it to your happiness.  They are not responsible for your happiness and you are not responsible for their happiness.
  2. Stop blaming yourself –  Don’t play the blame game every time something goes wrong.  Whether you win or fail understand it’s all part of life and you learn from your mistakes.  Successful people use their mistakes as a stepping stone to greatness.  It is a great motivator.
  3. Focus on what you can do not on what you can’t – Don’t get caught up in what you can’t do.  Can’t is a word that should be removed from your vocabulary.  Instead, see the possibilities life has for you and do your best.
  4. Eliminate your ego –  Remember, it’s not all about you.  Ego is the great divider.  Instead, be the kind of person that helps others and brings a smile and a laugh to everyone.  When you eliminate the selfishness all you have left to give is love and care.
  5. Surround yourself with positive people – The more positive people you bring into your life the more you can achieve.  When everyone is acting is a loving and positive manner it makes it easy to strive for success.  Those with a positive outlook on life are happier and their success rubs off on you.

According to Darshan Goswami, M.S., P.E. from, he says, “Positive thinking can change your life. I f you want to live longer, be happy, healthy and successful, all you have to do is think positive.”

Positive thinking helps us cope with life, and is a skill all of us need to apply to every area of our lives.  If everyone was more positive, life would be much safer, we’d all be much happier and love would really be all we need .

Let me leave you with this quote: “Your life is your garden, your thoughts are the seeds.  If  your life isn’t awesome, you’ve been watering the weeds.”

How To Reduce Stress With Positive Thinking

Reducing Stress With Positive Thinking

“Proactively working to develop mental strength increases your resilience to stress and reduces the toll it takes on you both physically and mentally.”
Amy Morin

Positive thinking can have an amazing and powerful effect on our lives but when we are stressed out we tend to forget all the positive thoughts we’ve had before and succumb to the rigors of our stressful lives.  Society as a whole has put stress in the forefront in the hectic and fast-paced life we all lead.

Negativity creeps up when we are stressed and those good thoughts that kept us sane before are nowhere to be found.  People with a positive mindset see things in a different light as opposed to those who constantly struggle with life because of a poor mental attitude.

Doctors at The Mayo Clinic have found that using positive thinking as a tool in managing your stress can have many useful benefits.

1- Helps you live a longer and happier life
2- Reduces the instances of depression and anxiety
3- Lowers the risk of both heart disease and heart related deaths
4- Less likelihood of developing colds and flu
5- Helps develop strong coping skills which makes you a stronger and tougher person
6- Helps boost your natural defense system

Believing In The Power Of Positive Thinking

power of positive thinking

“Being in a positive state of mind is more important than you might think as the mind cannot be creative in a negative state. New ideas, thoughts and inspiration will only take place when the mind is positive.”
Joe Hinchliff

For some people, the power of positive thinking can be difficult thing to accept.  They don’t understand the power that the mind has over our actions.  The universe delivers what we ask it to so when we are negative, we are really asking for a negative solution.  Positive people see the endless possibilities of life and live in the now.  They believe stress is just a perception of our reality and alter that reality with a clear vision of what they want to happen.  They live their lives according the present moment.  They don’t waste their time creating all kinds of “what if” scenarios that may never happen.  Instead they control their reality by believing in choosing a course of action that leads to a positive outcome.

Positive self talk is another way of reducing stress . The more you feel good about yourself the more ammunition you have to combat the destructive forces that negative self talk can hurl at you.

Thinking positively about who you are on the inside helps you confront the problem when it arises and gives you strength when things go bad. It’s only when you understand where stress is coming from can you battle it. Positive self talk is the difference between falling into depression and allowing things to roll off your back.

Positive Self-Talk

From Visually.

When you have a positive outlook on life, you have a clear focus what needs to be done.  This way you create less stressful situations which keep you calm in a sea of swirling negativity. Positive people tend to anticipate happiness, good health and bring forth real success in their lives while believing they can overcome any type of obstacle and difficulty that comes their way.

Focusing On Positive Thinking To Control Your Stress

There is an easy way to turn negative thinking into positive success.  It starts by creating a new habit within your mind. Expect good things to happen.  When you look for the good in life you will find it just as expecting bad things to happen they will appear.  It’s all in how you perceive life.  Start identifying areas in which you need to change.  Become an optimistic person and engage in thinking positive about every situation.  The more positive you are, the easier it is to handle stressful situations.

Watch what you are thinking about.  Negative people tend to let their minds wander and fall into negativity.  The more you listen to your thoughts the more you can control them.  Identify areas that cause you to be negative and work on them. Practice the idea of positive self-talk.  Listen to your inner dialogue and when negativity enters, change the conversation to a positive affirmation.

Try to surround yourself with only positive people.  It has been said that you are comprised of  your five closest companions. If they are negative or spout negative comments, they are influencing you in the wrong direction. They can prevent you from reaching your true potential.  Make sure your circle of friends are supportive of your ideas, dreams and are capable of giving thoughtful and helpful advice when you need it.

Before doing anything, visualize a positive outcome in any given situation.  It will give you a leg up on whether you succeed or fail.  When you know you will succeed, it gives you the confidence to make it happen.  When you are dealing with negative feelings, stress makes you doubt yourself thereby increasing the stress you already feel.

Positive Thinking Is A Way of Life

never give up on your dreams

“You have to develop a habit of saying positive things about yourself. It’s almost like tricking your mind sometimes because although you may not necessarily ‘feel’ that way, you’ll get into the habit of thinking positive things about yourself subconsciously.” 
Victoria Davis

To enjoy the fruits of positive thinking we must employ it everyday in everything we do.  In fact, we must ooze positive vibes which in turn bring positive people, outcomes and things into our lives.  What’s the difference between positive and negative people?  It’s all in their attitude.  Positive people are uplifting and fun to be with.  Negative people are  physically draining and brings us down.  Our body language shows the true way we feel.  Positive and negative thinking are as contagious as the flu and whichever one you decide to adopt you will attract like-minded people to you.  The more negative people are in your circle the more stress you will feel.

Did you know that when you are negative, you release poisons into the bloodstream which causes you to be more unhappy and much more negative?  That is why failure, frustration and disappointment follow negative people like the plague.  A positive attitude brings optimism into your life.  It helps you to think constructively, helps you to become a more creative person as well as giving you the energy and motivation to accomplish your goals.

The next time you are feeling stressed out and feel like  screaming, take a few minutes out of your busy schedule and meditate on some positive affirmations.  These are like giving yourself a pep talk.  Get into the habit of praying and believing you are loved.  Positive affirmations bring on a quiet confidence and allows you to be calm in the most stressful of situation. This takes some practice but the more you do it the less stress you will feel.

We all need to reduce the stress in our lives and using positive thinking is the best remedy I know to become the person you’ve always wanted to be.
