Positive Versus Negative Thinking (Part 1)

There is a little block on Facebook that one fills in to let others know what  you are doing. Everyone who has a Facebook account will know exactly what I am  referring to. At the moment it asks; “What are you thinking about?” Yesterday I  answered the question by writing: “Well only positive stuff! I am successfully  keeping any negative thoughts out! Although there are a few yapping at the door,  trying to get in!”

positive_thinkingThe fact that we can control our thoughts still remains one of my greatest  revelations in this entire personal growth endeavour. For many people, thinking  positively is a luxury, but really it is something we shouldn’t live without! So  in actual fact it really is a necessity. I mean many people get through life  with very little positive thinking at all, but the question is do they enjoy  that life? I would imagine that they don’t, well not as much as they could  anyway. People who do not concentrate on the positive things in life, have less  fun than people who do! We all want to enjoy life more, don’t we?

Well here’s the solution; take the trouble and the time to direct your  thoughts in a positive direction. It might seem tedious to start doing this at  first…but make it a habit! As with everything in life, practice makes perfect!  We’ve all seen cartoons of a character with a little angel sitting on one of his  shoulders and a little devil sitting on the other. If the character gives in to  the little devil that is making negative, evil suggestions he inevitably goes  off and does some mischief. Similarly, if the little angel wins the battle of  the will, the character goes of and performs a good deed. Although this is  usually just a bit of fun entertainment, there is a lot of truth to the scene.  We are constantly having to make mental choices, whether we realize it or  not

Positive and negative thoughts are vying for attention all the time.

As I mentioned in the Facebook quote,  there are little negative thoughts yapping at the door of our minds all the  time, and it is our job to keep them out. We have things ‘thrown’ at us on a  moment-by-moment basis. We could easily chose to construe many of them as  negative. It’s at that very moment that we must choose to think positively! Of  course that is sometimes easier said than done, especially if you feel that you  have a reason to be miserable or you have some other baggage, bondage or Life  Sentence that has pre-programmed you to think in a negative way in this  situation automatically. This of course is the  very heart of my recently published book; “Freeing Your Mind”. In the  book I identify all sorts of things that direct your thinking into a negative  path. It’s things that give the red little imaginary devil sitting on your  shoulder fuel to taunt you with. Yes, thinking positively is a luxury, but as  earlier stated I venture to suggest that it’s a luxury that we can’t do without.  In the next few blog articles that I will be submitting, I will address some of  these bondages that make us open up the door to those yapping little negative  thoughts. We have to keep that door shut! In fact we need deal with many issues  that are causing the yapping, and causing the negative thoughts to surface more  regularly. To stay with the metaphor, we need to reinforce that door so well  that we can’t even hear most of the yapping and the little that we do we can  easily ignore.

The problem is this does not happen by itself. It needs work, it needs  attention, it needs you to take control of your thinking.

I feel like pleading with you, if you have not already done so, to make a  conscious decision today! Decide that you will take control of you thinking from  this moment on. Decide that from now on you will do whatever it takes to keep  any negativism at bay. Do this and stick to it and you will find that your life  will take on far a more positive hue. You will be far happier and have much more  fun. In time you will have a whole new different life. If you would like to  learn more about this, and harness the power of  positive thinking I hope that you will join me and countless others by  staying tuned in, and by following my blog in future.

For all the Facebook fans, you are  also welcome to connect to my facebook page.

I leave you with this quote: “The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels  the intangible, and achieves the impossible.” Unknown
