Positive Thoughts VS Negative Thoughts

Posted: March 29, 2010 in Mentalism

Positive and negative thinking can be very powerful. If you’re someone who always looks on the negative side of things then chances are you’re always feeling disappointed and let down by the people around you. Say you’re going to a theme park and all that’s on your mind is “its a bank holiday, its going to be packed” then you’re not going to enjoy yourself because you’ll be complaining about how packed the theme park is. However, if you go to that very same theme park with this thought on your mind “Yeah it might be packed, but i’ll be able to get on a few rides and i’ll enjoy myself” you instantly transform your mind from negative into positive.

Positive thinkers are usually happy people, people who can look on the positive side of every situation are fun to be around because they’re usually always upbeat and happy, and thats the type of person many of us like to be around because we can enjoy ourselves.

Negative thinkers are often the complainers, complaining its too hot or too cold, and just complaining about anything bad that happens.

If I ask you to look at a news website, the chances are a majority of that news will be bad news. When there is an Earthquake, the news is always focused on the deaths and destruction that, that Earthquake has caused, what the news rarely focusses on are the people that have survived, the people that are pulled from wreckage and reunited with their families.

Whatever the mind expects it finds. For example, if you go out during the night and you expect something bad to happen then you’ll be constantly “look” for that bad thing, which is where the saying “If you go looking for trouble, it’ll find you” comes from. It’s quite common for someone to say “Think positive” to someone who’s feeling down, although usually people don’t quite understand what this means so the words aren’t taken seriously.

Positive and Negative thinking is contagious. When you’re with someone who is constantly moaning and thinking negative about everything then after a while, you’ll begin to do exactly the same and you’ll start to feel miserable. However, if you’re with a positive thinker then things instantly brighten up and you enjoy yourself a whole lot more.

So next time you catch yourself thinking negative about something, stop yourself and think, what’s good about this situation? How can I make the best out of the situation in front of me? Do this for a few days and you’ll begin to instantly notice a difference in how you’re feeling, you’ll no doubt begin to feel happier.
