What exactly is positive thinking? Is it pie in the sky, airy fairy double think? Hardly. Positive thinking is more the result of understanding and practicing the following suggestions:
- Accept responsibility for your actions and reactions. Life will always throw challenges your way; how you handle them determines the result of their presence in your life. “When you do not listen to your conscience it’s because you do not want advice from a stranger.” Anonymous
- Expect the best outcome for all concerned. “What worries you, masters you.” H.W. Robinson
- Remain flexible. You may not always know the consequences of getting your prayers answered. “This, or something better…”
Challenge: Consciously change something in your life every day. This begins the rather uncomfortable process of habit rearrangement and reconstruction. It’s not easy but in the process comes manifestation.
“Become a possibilitarian. No matter how dark things seem or actually are, raise your sights and see possibilities—always.” Dr. Norman Vincent Peale
