The Power of Positive Thinking
I've always heard the saying "your thoughts become things," but only recently have I began to actively keep track of my daily thoughts. I never thought of myself as a negative person. I've been around negative people and I didn't act like them or thought like them, but that didn't mean that I wasn't immune to negative thinking. I would habitually let my thoughts run wild especially when something bad happened not realizing that I was putting those thoughts out there in the universe to manifest. It was quite easy for me to get caught up in the "what ifs" and imagine worst case scenarios and most times those negative feelings and thoughts I had would creep into my life deterring me from happiness. It wasn't until I began my wellness journey that I began learning how powerful your thinking is and how important it is to control your thoughts.
In The Secret, the author focused on the law of attraction, meaning you attract what you want and what you think about, but it goes deeper than that. You may have dreams and aspirations that you constantly think about and want to attract. You may wake up in a good mood and begin thinking that you will be in a good mood for the rest of your day, but as powerful as your positive thinking can affect your life, so can negative thinking. As I mentioned, your thoughts become things. Once I had this revelation, I became astounded by how often negative thoughts clouded my mind and so I began practicing positive thinking. Instead of going into a situation thinking the worst, I would go into it thinking the absolute best. Instead of letting fear overcome my mind, I would think happy things, which ultimately changed my mood for the better.
It took a lot of practice (and I'm still practicing this as we speak), but I have started to see positive changes in my life. I am a lot happier. If something bad happens or something inconvenience's my whole day, I don't let it affect my mood by dwelling on that one thing. I remain positive and if it does affect me, I only allow it to happen for a moment and I get back to happy. The more positive your thoughts are the more positive your life will be. Try it.
