The Power Of Positive Thinking

written byErickson Coaching Internationalon 25/02/2015

“The Secret” is a book, movie, and movement about the Law of Attraction and how we can improve our lives by focusing on what we want in such a way that it is attracted to us.   A huge part of the movie is the importance of maintaining positivity. Whether you have watched the movie, read the book, or not, one can’t deny the value that being positive can have on one’s life and goals, when compared to negative thinking.   According to “The Secret”, thinking negatively attracts further or increased negativity, in the same way that a positive mental attitude attracts the positive to you. It has now been determined that the negative emotions we allow into our lives can actually lead to negative physical outcomes – this was demonstrated with water crystals by Dr. Masaru Emoto, who found that exposing the crystals to different emotions and music affected them accordingly. He found that positivity led to beautiful crystal forms, while hate and negativity led to the dissipation and irregularity of the crystal form.   So, how can you maintain positivity in your life without it becoming fluffy or forced? Here are ten things you can start doing right away:  

  1. Treat everyone the way you want to be treated
  2. Stop worrying about the future and let go of your need to control
  3. See the silver lining in every situation – turn a negative into a positive
  4. Schedule time to play into your life and have some fun
  5. Free yourself from past resentments
  6. Focus on circulating positive, life-affirming ideas
  7. Visualize ideal outcomes and happy endings
  8. Be happy and laugh out loud
  9. Be grateful
  10. Be present

How do you keep the positive in your day?
