Art of Thinking Positively

Successful people teach us the art of thinking positively. Cool tips from the masters.

Most of us can learn to live in perfect comfort on higher levels of power. Everyone knows that on any given day there are energies slumbering in him which the incitements of that day do not call forth. Compared with what we ought to be, we are only half awake. It is evident that our organism has stored-up reserves of energy that are ordinarily not called upon - deeper and deeper strata of explosible material, ready for use by anyone who probes so deep. The human individual usually lives far within his limits.
Dr. Peale

When you decide on a question to ask yourself, ask the question and keep asking. Ponder it. Wonder about it. Let it run through your mind whenever your mind isn’t otherwise engaged. It will turn the tide of your thoughts and bring you into a new state of mind because you’re thinking positively positively.
Adam Khan

Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

It is easier to keep a positive frame of mind when things go well. It is tougher to do so when in the midst of problems, difficulties or obstacles. In such times you will need more effort, attention and patience. If you learn how to think positively when not under pressure, stress or strain, it will be easier to do so when things are tough.
Remez Sasson

Positive thinking, the right attitude towards goals, will get us to the top. Whatever ideas and plans you have inside your mind, if you have the positivity, you have all the reasons to do it and fulfill it. What can hinder you from doing what you planned to do? Do not let negative thoughts block you on your way to success. Conquer your doubts by just being positive and soon you will have the inner strength to carry out your plans.

The greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions and not on our circumstances.
Martha Washington

A weight loss plateau is normal and how you deal with it can mean the difference between success and failure. Stay focused on how well you've done so far, try to stay active, investigate new and healthy and tasty recipes so you stay motivated and be good to yourself with non food treats (like early nights, a warm bath or a DVD).

Become very aware of your thinking. Notice when you think positively and congratulate yourself. Also notice when you think negatively and convert your thoughts to a more positive view.
Jerry Lopper

As you think, so you become." This powerful psychological principle is the mainstay of meditation. If you think negatively, your life will be negative; if you think positively, your life will be positive. We are continually in the process of becoming the object of our ideation. So the meaning of the mantra is vital. It must be the most uplifting ideation; the most positive of thoughts. Again: infinite happiness; perfect peace and contentment – bliss.
