Does Positive Thinking Work? YES! It does work. And if you want to know why positive thinking is important, all you have to do is take a look around you.
Look at your life and look at the lives of those people who are closest to you. You will start to see a pattern. The people who moan all the time, are down or that seem negative, tend to attract negative situations and even drama (and not in a good way – life isn’t a soap opera, but sometimes their lives seem like it!). They always have a story to tell about how they had ‘a nightmare of a weekend’ or ‘the holiday from hell’. They never seem to be happy and they never have anything much to say that is positive.
The people who are positive and have a positive attitude, attract opportunities, they seem ‘lucky’, and more importantly they also seem happy. When you ask them how their weekend went, they will say ‘great thanks, how about you?’ and they may tell you about a birthday BBQ or a day out with the kids, but they don’t MOAN or gossip about a relative, or want to be the centre of attention for the latest instalment of their drama. They are great to be around and we feel light when we are near them.
You know how it is. Just when you think that life is going great (you fall in love, or get a brilliant new job, or you finally move into your beautiful new home) something brings you back down to earth with a BUMP.
It hasn’t always been like this, but after years of working on my inner junk – life feels good, most of the time.
I can appreciate the things around me, not just my beautiful family, but little things like listening to the birds singing in my garden or finding a parking space in a great spot, just when I’m running late for an appointment. These are the silly little things that make my day happier and keep me positive and loving life.
