How to Use Affirmative Prayer (Part III) - Your Personal Power

Your greatest gift....

Using Your Personal Power

“Before a diamond shows its brilliance and prismatic colors, it has to stand a good deal of cutting and smoothing.” Anonymous

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. You're not the only one involved in the answers to your requests. “What worries you, masters you.” H.W. Robinson
•    Remain flexible. You may not always know the consequences of getting your prayers answered. Even the best candy can rot your teeth. Allow the universe to bring the right circumstances. Say “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. 
Positive thinking, then, is a result of good practice. You can act your way into a new way thinking much more easily than trying to think your way into a new way of acting. Move. Take action. Start now. And watch your mind change for the better!

“Become a possibilitarian. No matter how dark things seem or actually are, raise your sights and see possibilities—always.” Dr. Norman Vincent Peale
