The Art of Positive Thinking is very powerful and it is the ultimate way to live your life. You can train yourself to see the best in all situations, but you will need to practice on a continual basis until it becomes an automatic way of thinking.
Many times, often times, a human will learn a negative way of thinking beginning in the early stages of life. These negative thought patterns are ingrained in the brain by repeated experiences and words from others that continuously drum into the brain until the thoughts become beliefs. Once they become beliefs, they become an integral part of the psyche and it affects every aspect of life. Thus, it is harder to create a positive mindset, because you will have to break an old thought pattern and create a new one. It is not impossible. It will take time. It is 100% possible, but you will have to catch yourself many, many times thinking a negative thought, and then you will have to turn it into a positive thought.
The process for improvement goes like this: Number One: Be aware of your thoughts and your feelings at all times. When you notice that your thought or feeling is negative – when that little voice inside of you that is called Ego starts to talk negatively to you – you need to recognize this. Number Two: Pause. Stop what you are doing and pause. Number Three: Place your focus to your breath for a few moments. This will ground you and raise your focus level to a new height. Number Four: You will then place your focus on something positive and happy to think about. It would help in the beginning to have a pre-written list of things, moments and experiences, or people that make you happy and refer to this list when you feel the negative thought creeping in. Keep your focus on this list until you notice a great shift into a positive thought that creates a positive, happy and peaceful feeling inside of you. Number Five: Repeat this as often and as necessary throughout your day. This process can also be practiced in times of anger, stress and frustration. Follow the same protocol.
All it takes is patience, time and practice to achieve a positive thought process. It is not impossible. You will notice a great light shining upon your life when you turn your thoughts and your actions to positive ones. Amen.
