You might ask “Why has this guy, Dan, assembled this piece of literature and given it to me?” It’s very simple-I thought you might like to read it! If I can give something to someone that may help them enjoy life a little bit more, why shouldn’t I? If we all could give a little more than we take, we all would reap the rewards and be much better off.
Be Positive
Do you ever notice how refreshingly fun it is to be around positive thinking people who seem to naturally maintain a positive attitude? No matter how bad the circumstances, negativity never even enters their minds. However, encountering a positive person is a rare occurrence these days. Even though this statement sounds somewhat negative.
Why is it so much easier to have a negative attitude than a positive one? What's inside of us that just naturally pulls us toward the negative side?
We read the books. We attend the seminars. We buy the tapes, and things seem to go well for awhile. We feel better. Our outlook is improved, and we're hopeful. Until something happens that sends us reeling all over again.
It doesn't even have to be a major, catastrophic event to send us back to the land of negative thinking. It can be something as simple as someone cutting us off in traffic or pushing ahead of us in the grocery checkout line. What gives those seemingly simple occurrences of every day life so much power to literally throw us into a tizzy all over again?
So how do we put a stop to all this nonsense? How do we get to a place where our positive attitude is what's natural for us and not the other way around?
The good news is that there are some things we can do to help transition from the land of negativity to a much more positive place.
Positive Thinking Tips for a Positive Attitude - Permanently
* FIRST : Focus on what you're thinking about. Our negative actions and words are coming from our negative thoughts. Our body, including the mouth, has no choice but to follow wherever our mind goes.
It is possible to control our thoughts, regardless of what we've been led to believe. As soon as a negative thought comes into your mind, purposefully make it a point to replace it with a positive one. At first, this may take some work, because chances are, we will probably have a lot more negative thoughts in our head than positive ones. But eventually, the ratio will reverse itself.
* SECOND : Stop letting other people's negative attitudes influence yours. This may mean we need to stop hanging around with people who do nothing but spout negative stuff. The negative people in our life aren't going to like it when we stop participating in negativity.
* THIRD : Make a list of all the areas in your life that you want to change. List all your negative attitudes too. If you can't think of things to put on your list, just ask family.
* FOURTH : Take some time to write strong, life-giving, positive affir-mation statements. Make a commitment to read those statements out loud every day. Know in your heart that you're making progress, even if you can't see it just yet. Just keep affirming the positive.
* Lastly, take time to pray about this. You can't change by yourself. But you can spend time with the One who is able to help. Do what you can, and let God do the rest. It really is that simple.
This process will change how we think and that's the real key to changing how we act. (Source:
