Transform Your Life With The Power of Positive Thinking

positive attitude-positive thinking-happy peopleCan you guess what the most successful and happy people think about all day long? The answer is simple.  Healthy, happy people think about what they want, and how to get it, most of the time. The power of positive thinking and developing a positive attitude are two of the most important qualities a person can have to change their life.

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 are thinking 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.

The Most Important Quality

Based on many psychological tests, happy people seem to have a special quality that enables them to live a better life than the average.  Can you guess what it is?  It is the quality of optimism and positive thinking!

The best news about optimism is that it is a learnable quality. You can learn to be a more confident and optimistic person and have a more positive attitude by thinking the way optimists do – most of the time.

By the law of cause and effect, if you do and say what other healthy, happy people do and say, you will soon feel the same way, get the same results, and enjoy the same positive attitude and experiences that they do.

Happy People Find Good in the World

Optimists seem to have different ways of dealing with the world that set them apart from the average.

First, they keep their minds on what they want, and keep looking for ways to get it.  They are clear about goals and they are confident that they will accomplish them, sooner or later.

Second, optimists look for the good in every problem or difficulty.  When things go wrong, as they often do, they say, “That’s good!”  And then set about finding something positive about the situation.

What we know is that, if you are looking for something good or beneficial in a person or situation, you will always find it.  And while you are looking, you will be a more positive and cheerful person.

The Power of Positive Thinking

Optimists seek the valuable lesson in every setback or reversal.  Rather than getting upset and blaming someone else for what has happened, they take control over their emotions by saying, “What can I learn from this experience?” Resolve today to develop a positive attitude toward yourself, the people around you and your life.

Decide To Be Happy

Resolve from now to see your glass of life as half full rather than half empty. Happy people give thanks for the many blessings in life rather than worrying or complaining about the things they do not have.

Assume the best of intentions on the part of everyone around you.  Most people are pretty decent, honest and are trying to do the very best they know how to.  When you look for something good in their words and actions, you will almost always find something.

Finally, resolve to be cheerful, no matter what happens.  A positive attitude, looking on the bright side, is most important when things go wrong.

Your Positive Attitude in Action

It is easy to have a positive attitude and to be cheerful when everything is going according to plan.  But it is when you encounter unexpected setbacks and difficulties that you demonstrate to yourself, and the world around you, what kind of an attitude you really have.  Make sure that it is a positive attitude!

    I think a positive mind anticipates happiness, joy, health and a successful outcome of every situation and action. Whatever the mind expects, it finds.

    Positive thinking is a choice in our life! We can choose to be thinking positive or we can choose not to be happy or have negative thoughts.

    By practicing positive thinking we get into a repetitive mode and we continue to think positive more often.

    Thank you Brian for your powerful post, I really found value in it. Indeed what we need in life in to be grateful and to see positive things in every situation in our life. As Zig Ziglar said: The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more you will have to express gratitude for. Thanks Brian again for inspiring us and looking forward to reading your new blogs.

    Funny, the Buddha claimed that thinking about your desire all the time is a path filled with suffering. That would be the opposite to what you’re saying, Brian.
