  Positive Thinking


The way we think is what makes us different from one another.

We are not aware of the way in which we think. Two people can experience identical traumas, yet one person can overcome theirs relatively quickly whereas another may develop the symptoms of depression.

Studies suggests that people with a negative way of thinking will be more prone to depression than most other people.

Stop, and have a deep look within yourself, the way you think.

"Positive Thinking," phrase was made famous by Norman Vincent Peale in his 1952 best-seller, The Power of Positive Thinking. It can be simply stated as another term for belief in oneself and faith in God.

Positive Thinking Affirmation (positive phrase)

Affirmations are a deceptively simple device that can be used by anyone and they are remarkably effective. These powerful, positive phrases will improve communication with all parts of your mind. All you need is a simple phrase summing up how you want to be.

When thinking is distorted, as it is during depression, medical treatment is needed to till the soil so that positive thoughts can take root. And to till this soil there are different techniques. One of them is Positive Affirmations.

Positive affirmations require you to come up with a set of sentences to repeat to yourself, or, for a small fee, you can repeat someone else's.

Benefits of positive thinking affirmation/ phrases :
All the time you're repeating your affirmations, you can't be thinking bad stuff about yourself.

All of our feelings, beliefs and knowledge are based on our internal thoughts, both conscious and subconscious. We are in control, whether we know it or not.

The way to use positive thinking phrases involves dedicated efforts in remembering and repeating the same positive phrases over and over. In other words, it may be stated as covering existing negative thoughts, which blocks your mind, with positive feelings.

The Power of Words:

To make affirmations effective, they should

  • be made in the present tense
  • be positively phrased
  • have an normal emotional reward.

Positive thinking and attitude

The biggest difference between people is their attitudes. For some, learning is enjoyable and exciting. For others, learning is a drudgery. For many, learning is just okay, something required on the road to a job.

Our present attitudes are habits, built from the feedback of parents, friends, society and self, that form our self-image and our world-image. These attitudes are maintained by the inner conversations we constantly have with ourselves, both consciously and subconsciously.

The first step in changing our attitudes is to change our inner conversations.

All what is needed from our side is to liberate and relish our natural positive nature.
