Think Positively and Act Positively

Try to think positively and not worry much about your negative thoughts. Trying to avoid thinking about negative things is a bad strategy. And is bound to produce oppositive results for you.

Daniel M. Wegner of Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas conducted a research into how people tend to avoid thinking negative thoughts and think it may help them turn positive. He told his subjects, Try not to think about a white bear. This produced the thought of a white bear 5 to 6 times in five minutes.

This just goes to show that when you try to suppress a thought, it comes up rather aggressively. And avoiding a thought or feeling makes one linger on it.

Forget the negative thoughts. Don't fight with it when it surfaces.

Focus on the positive thoughts. And you'll be soon able to act positively towards success.
