It is widely believed that the unseen hands of fate influence the outcomes of many activities in our lives. On the other hand, positive thinking influences many outcomes too—it often goes to the greatest extent imaginable.
We have been informed by positive thinking books—and even the most popular religious book—that people’s outcomes are products of their thoughts—“as you think, so you are”.
This saying has been proven by fact that two or more people with the same opportunities produce different results. In certain instances, one or few people produce multiple times what other people produce.
It won’t be difficult to see a connection between many results in real life, and the statements related to thinking, as contained in a number of books.
Generally speaking, history has proven that the size of one’s happiness and general fulfillment depends a lot on the size of one’s positive thinking—there is magic in positive thinking.
If positive thinking is effective, why can’t everybody do it?
Much of our thinking is either little, or big; negative, or positive; or a mixture of two or more types of thinking.
And results could be either extremely positive, extremely negative, or anything in between.
We are surrounded by environments that always attempt to pull us down—and if possible, tear us to pieces.
Here and there, we are reminded that opportunities do not exist; and so we should be contented with staying in any available little position—this is a statement that is far away from the truth!
We are told that “whatever will be, will be”; that our destiny is out of our control: we are told that fate is in complete control.
So we feed on all this, and gradually begin to forget about our most cherished dreams; finally, we choose to open our arms, lie down and wait for our day of exit from this world.
Society tells us there is too much competition at the top positions of life, and so we dare not waste any effort to attain them.
Is there evidence that positive thinking is effective?
Is there any proof that positive thinking is effective?
Proof comes from real-life experiences of people around us, who, despite experiencing various degrees of ups and downs in life, achieved great success because they maintained a consistent positive attitude.
The theories about positive thinking have been tried, tested, and found to work wonders in many life situations.
Don’t get it wrong: positive thinking could still encounter challenges and problems—but it will still lead anyone to experience the reality behind the popular statement that “all things work together for good”.
It is a great quality to have the desire to be successful.
In order to build a successful life, we need the tool called “positive thinking”. Many of us read or come across positive statements and literature every day; but seconds after reading them, we lose the feeling of their real latent power.
In order to maintain and develop the power of positive thoughts and words, we need to be consistent in our positive thinking, which will be very effective if we drive it with consistency.
Remember the saying: “As a man thinks”. Not: “as a man thought” or “as a man used to think”; but rather: “as a man thinks”—consistency!
If you wish to benefit from positive thinking, be consistent in your positive thinking, and you will be happy regardless of your station in life.
Develop an ever-increasing desire for positive thinking, and you will greatly enhance your chances for success—you will actually end up achieving success!
