"This Will Change Your Life ..."

35 replies
I've mentioned this concept before however it's only until recently that I've began to understand how life-changing it can be.

It can bring you happiness/self-esteem. It can turn "failure" into "success." And, it can bring admiration and respect from other people.

Simply put: When you choose to look at the positive side of everything you become unstoppable. When people are complaining about this or that you will simply take everything in your stride, and happily continue being successful.

To begin with you'll have to practice this "consciously." You do that by saying: "This is good/positive because __________." Then, after you've been practicing for some time, it will start becoming automatic¾ making your life and yourself so much more happy and successful.

I hope I've communicated this message enough for you to consider choosing to be more "positive."

If you keep practicing you will see that everything I've told you (and much more) is true. : )

      I totally agree! If everything falls out of place, just keep on believing and look on the positive side of it. Always have an optimistic attitude.

    Yes, it seems to be a good exercise which you mentioned. It will force us to pick out and write whatever positives we can think of coming out of any experience. Then, when we do so, our minds will start focusing on those positives instead of just delving on the problems or negatives of any incident.

    As our minds start focusing on positives and the opportunities contained within any negative event, we can surge much ahead of others who are lost in complaining. They are unlikely to gain much out of that event while we have a better chance.

    That's a really nice point. Intentions and gratitude can really help when they are positive.

    Think positive, act on it positively.

    We always hear people say "Think Positive", to someone who feels worried and down. Some people do not take it seriously because they do not know how to use it effectively to get results.

    Thinking Positive really works for me.

    I completely agree.

    Positive thinking is the best. I'm creating new years resolutions, and what helps me maintain them is this:

    Instead of writing something like:

    Smoking is bad. I wan't to quit smoking, I write it as this:

    I will keep my lungs smoke free to keep healthy and strong. =) etc, etc... Positive thinking CAN change your life, if you let it!

      The law of attraction really works - not in the sense that if you keep thinking about money, prosperity and abundance all day long, it will come to just like that - you have to go for it, but if you positively, you are pretty much bound to achieve your goals sooner or later.

    I like that approach Jonathan 2.0 where you have a quote every time something is happening that you are dealing with. I was just thinking of how I need to change my worrisome thoughts as soon as my head is off the pillow. It is a habit and I notice I have nothing to worry about but it is so automatic that I wake up worried or stressed.
    I will get back to affirmations before I fall asleep. Dr. Wayne Dyer says before you fall asleep do your affirmations and you will be increase the feeling in your sleeping life. Thank you Jonathan.

    I believe one can help others to see the positive side by turning it into a question...

    "How could this be turned into a good and positive thing in your life?"

    Or...

    "In what way could this become a positive thing?"

    I just need to remember to use questions like those more often in my kids.

    In order for a positive outlook to have some noticeable impact it
    would have to represent a real part of a person's views.
    He may start out in a purely mechanistic way with finding positive
    aspects of a situation, but I wonder if there's some necessary period
    of time until those mechanistic affirmations begin to be a natural
    part of a person's psyche. And is there any means to speed up that
    process or to make it more concrete?

    I always admired a business man who would listen to a manger reporting some problem or how things had gone wrong, which more often than not, required more money to put the problem right. He would ask a few questions about details. And think for a moment. Then ask 'How can we turn this around to our benefit? How can we convert this problem into a money earner?'. He turned 'problems' into 'benefits'. What others called 'problems', he called 'Challenges'. The change of attitude meant the resolution of problems was achieved in a much more manageable and beneficial way. Problems can get you down, but this mental attitude was uplifting and inspiring!

    Great stuff.

    Don't forget to believe what you are saying. It's only by believing that change can occur.

    Smile when you are trotting out your positive words, it's hard to be miserable when you have a big smile on your face.

    Being happy attracts the same type of person into your life.

    Happy 2012 everyone.
