Positive thinking is the key to good health, wealth, and most importantly, happiness.
There has been plenty of recent buzz about positive thinking and the power such thoughts have in reaching our goals and fulfilling our dreams. Whether it be to land that new job, lose those extra pounds, avoid catching that flu bug, or even to meet the love of your life, I believe that thinking positive plays a great role in attracting whatever goals suit our needs.
Upon reading several articles and listening to audio CD’s on this very subject, I have learned that it is the fear of failing and lack of confidence which may deter one from believing his or her positive thoughts can affect their accomplishments. I have also learned that one can learn to resist such negativity by habitually blocking pessimistic thoughts from entering their mind. If this practice of resistance is continuously put into action from day to day, the positive attitude with surpass all feelings of failure.
Various studies have shown, including such studies at John Hopkins, that people with an optimistic attitude on life and health produce lower levels of the very hormones which add to stress to our physical beings. In turn, disease rates are decreased for individuals with such approaches to their daily lives.
So, if the 10 o’clock news says the flu season is here, don’t run to the nearest drug store to stock up on every cold and flu medication. Try putting such news into your mind that the flu season will never affect you. If you go on a job interview, approach your interview as if you already landed the position. If you are writing a novel, write that book as if it has already been accepted by a publisher. Keep your thoughts on a positive level. Success, good health, and happiness could only follow!
