There is a lot to be said about positive thinking but how do you do it; especially in this day and age where there are no boundaries when it comes to news and information? Bad news instantly travels across continents in a matter of minutes and floods our minds with images of destruction and pain. Information overload, financial crisis, broken relationships, social challenges and lack of coping mechanisms interfere with our daily lives adding to our stress levels and interfering with our positive thinking.
The main difference between positive thinking and negative thinking is that positive thinkers don’t allow negative experiences to keep them from moving forward, while negative thinkers feel (and often act) helpless.
Learning how to look at things as the glass being half full shouldn’t be complicated and require years of training. In fact, it can be broken down into a few short steps. One of the biggest challenges to positive thinking is dealing with the world around us. Two powerful tools are laughter and changing the way you see the world. Begin your journey by checking out the 5 steps to positive thinking and keep motivated by reading posts from the positive thinking blog. We all need to let off steam once in awhile and sure, these thoughts probably should have been kept private but they might be worth a laugh or two. Live, laugh and love and don’t take yourself too seriously. We’re all good enough, smart enough and gosh darn it, people like us. Happy reading!
