The Myth of Positive Thinking: Do not take it for granted


The Myth of Positive Thinking: Do not take it for granted
New York, Jan 13: Positive thinking is a process of thinking that leads to desired results. The key to a successful work or relationship with other people is knowing how to approach people with their problems, conflicts, and obstacles and think through them to see their positive sides.

Although it seems that we do this all the time, it's often difficult to maintain the effort needed to achieve this goal.

We may feel in certain situations that our thoughts and decisions are a lot like automatic reactions to certain circumstances. For example, you know that no matter what you say or do, no matter how much or how little you exert yourself, you will lose the race. It is easy to assume that if you say that you'll win the race, you will, and this is true. However, at some point, you will realize that your ability to think about it is clearly the key to your success.

Before you can think about it, you need to consciously realize that you need to train your mind to know that your energy is much more important than your performance. If you lose the race and don't know why, it's possible that you haven't achieved the results you want.

Once you realize that you need to train your mind, you can begin to think positively about what you can do in your particular situation. The end result is to boost your energy levels and your confidence levels.

Positive thinking can also be achieved by setting achievable, attainable goals. Since so many of us spend our lives waiting for the next big thing, we tend to be discouraged from striving to accomplish more by staying stagnant and believing that we are never going to achieve what we want. However, if you set out to attain the goals you've set for yourself, you'll find that these goals will come to you easily, and you'll be more likely to achieve them.

Positive thinking can be summed up in the three sentences, I am going to accomplish something followed by I will succeed. In other words, what you achieve will reflect on how well you feel about yourself, which will in turn reflect on how well you will feel about yourself.

Anyone who spends time in any sort of positive frame of mind will find that constructive criticism of themselves will come in handy. The more often we hear from other people how we can improve ourselves, the more frequently we will internalize the feedback.

Once you've set the goal of getting in shape, writing a blog, or quitting smoking, you'll want to set aside time for yourself each day to pursue those goals. Create an environment where others can make you feel good about yourself, and in time you'll find that the ability to think positive is a natural part of your daily routine.

You should be especially cautious with this kind of attitude. Negative people thrive on negative thinking. In this situation, positive thinking becomes one of the chief obstacles for your success.

Positive thinking can be enhanced by creating routines in your life. For example, when you go to sleep at night, set your alarm for eight or nine in the morning. The point is to wake up in a positive frame of mind each morning.

Positive thinking is essential for success in any situation. However, do not take it for granted, because without it, your personal, professional, and social life will never be the same.
