It’s simple if you really want to start something fresh or change a habit you will. By having full intent and asking the universe it will happen. Positive thinking is the key.
Is your glass half-empty or half-full? How you answer this age-old question about positive thinking may reflect your outlook on life, your attitude toward yourself, and whether you're optimistic or pessimistic. If you tend to be pessimistic, don't despair - you can learn positive thinking skills.
Positive thinking doesn’t mean you keep your head in the sand when faced with an unpleasant situation, it just means you approach the unpleasant situation in a more positive way. You think the best is going to happen,
not the worst.
Self-talk is unspoken thoughts that run through your head every day. These automatic thoughts can be positive or negative. Some of your self-talk comes from logic and reason. Positive thinking often starts with self-talk.
If the thoughts that run through your head are mostly negative, your outlook on life is more likely pessimistic. If your thoughts are mostly positive, you're likely an optimist — someone who practices positive thinking.
Researchers continue to explore the effects of positive thinking and optimism on health. Health benefits that positive thinking may provide include:
o Increased life span
o Lower rates of depression
o Lower levels of distress
o Greater resistance to the common cold
o Better psychological and physical well-being
o Reduced risk of death from cardiovascular disease
o Better coping skills during hardships and times of stress
Why do people who engage in positive thinking experience health benefits? Is it because having a positive outlook enables you to cope better with stressful situations? Or is it just simply The Law of Attraction? "The Law of Attraction is the name given to the belief that "like attracts like" and that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, one can bring about positive or negative results. There is no scientific basis to the law of attraction.”*
If you are not a positive thinker, why not try it in 2013 and let me know if it’s improved your life. I would love
to hear your feedback.
