Magic of Thoughts

Positive thinking means admitting into the mind thoughts, words and images that are conductive to growth, expansion and success. It is the expectation of good and favorable results. A positive mind anticipates happiness, joy, health and a successful outcome of every situation and action. Whatever the mind expects, it finds.

Not everyone accepts or believes in positive thinking. Some consider the subject as just nonsense, and others scoff at people who believe and accept it. Among the people who are conversant with this subject, not many know how to use it effectively in order to get results. Yet, it seems that more people are becoming attracted to this subject, as evidenced by the many books, lectures and courses about it. This is a subject that is gaining popularity. It is quite common to hear people say: "Think positive!", to someone who feels down and worried. Most people do not take these words seriously, as they do not know what it really means, or do not consider it as useful and effective. How many people do you know that ever stop to think what the power of positive thinking means.

There is a enduring principle for gaining the vision, cultivating the desire and achieving the action that leads to result. That principle, put in simplest form is this “As a man think in his heart, so he is”.
As in form of poem we can say:
“God gives us everything –
He gives me parents to care
He gives me friends to share
He gives me colors to realize
He gives me occasion to enjoy.
God gives us everything
He gives me thought to imagine high
He gives me dreams to keep me on.

How can a thought have such a powerful effect upon our behavior? Does the mind really control matter even our attitude and behavior? The answer will be yes. The process of thinking and mental exertion is the beginning of gaining the vision, the desire, and the action.

Thought is an idea, a consideration, a reflection, a deliberation, a concept, an aspiration, a meditation, a pondering- about something. Through thought and dreams a person can imagine himself on the top of the world. It brought to reside in your mind and to be continually present, such that you are engrossed in it and linger on it.
Thought creates a desire, a want, a need, a penchant for, a wish, willingness, a passion a craving for something. It encouraged which is to urge, help, inspire, promote stimulate and reassure. Believe in yourself, think positive and good things do start happening. Your mind is a “thought factory”. It’s a busy factory producing countless thoughts in one day. Production in thought factory is under the change of two foremen, one of whom we will call Mr. Triumph and the other one is known as Mr. Defeat. Mr. Triumph is in charge of manufacturing positive thoughts. He specializes in producing reasons why you can, why you’re qualified. The other foremen Mr. Defeat produce negative, depreciating thoughts. Positive and negative thinking are both contagious. All of us affect, in one way or another, the people we meet. This happens instinctively and on a subconscious level, through thoughts and feelings transference and through body language. People are more disposed to help us if we are positive. They dislike and avoid anyone broadcasting negativity.

Negative thoughts, words and attitude bring up negative and unhappy moods and actions. When the mind is negative, poisons are released into the blood, which cause more unhappiness and negativity. This is the way to failure, frustration and disappointment. In order to turn the mind toward the positive, knowledge and training are necessary. Attitude and thoughts do not change overnight. Meditate about its benefits, and persuade your mind to try it. The power of thoughts is a mighty power that is always shaping our lives. This shaping is usually done subconsciously, but it is possible to make the process a conscious one. Even if the idea seems strange give it a try, as you have nothing to lose, but only to gain. Ignore what others might say or think about you if you change the way you think. Always visualize only favorable and beneficial situations. Use positive words in your inner dialogues or when talking with others. Smile a little more, as this helps to think positively. Disregard any feelings of laziness or a desire to quit. If you persevere, you will transform the way your mind thinks. Once a negative thought enters your mind, you have to be aware of it and endeavor to replace it with a constructive one. The negative thought will try again to enter your mind, and then you have to replace it again with a positive one. It is as if there are two pictures in front of you, and you choose to look at one of them and disregard the other. Persistence will eventually teach your mind to think positively and ignore negative thoughts.

In case you feel any inner resistance when replacing negative thoughts with positive ones, do not give up, but keep looking only at the beneficial, good and happy thoughts in your mind. It does not matter what your circumstances are at the present moment. Think positively, expect only favorable results and situations, and circumstances will change accordingly. It may take some time for the changes to take place, but eventually they do.

Another method to employ is the repetition of affirmations. It is a method which resembles creative visualization, and which can be used in conjunction with it. There is magic in positive thinking! In aviation, the word attitude means the angle at which the plane meets the wind, whether the wings are level with the horizon, and whether it is climbing or descending. The pilot who fails to take responsibility for the attitude of his aircraft is in serious trouble. And likewise, any person who has not taken charge of his or her own beliefs and attitudes runs a similar risk. The key to cultivating and maintaining a positive mental attitude is to take control of your thinking and avoid negative minded people. It's a challenging task to develop a calm, focused mind, but well worth the effort.
