Whenever I tell people about the power of positive thinking, some of them get the impression that “positive thinking” means pretending to be happy even if you’re not.
Like most other people, you are probably not completely satisfied with where you are in life right now.
Hopefully, much of your life is working okay for you…
If you’ve ever felt overwhelmed by worry, you know how difficult it is to feel happy at the same time. Worry and happiness are by nature complete opposites; they cannot co-exist.
When most of us get caught up in the “what ifs,” we take it to a negative place. What if this terrible thing happens? What if I can’t change this painful situation? But you can use the power of “What If” to attract some wonderful, inspiring new circumstances too!
Do you ever feel like your problems are taking over your life? It’s not uncommon for most of us to have a handful of problems or challenges that keep detracting from our happiness.
In life, there are cycles of good and bad. Times when our lives seem joyful and easy, and times when we’re struggling through what seem like endless difficulties. Then there are times when the two seem to co-mingle.
I received such a funny email this week, from a nice man in Minnesota who wishes to remain anonymous. This is all his email said: “Are you ALWAYS so upbeat and happy? You drive me nuts sometimes.”
I choose to look on the bright side as often as I can. Why? Because it makes me feel happier. And that is why I write so much about positive thinking, optimism, and the other motivational topics I cover. I want you to feel happier too.
Look around you. What have your thoughts created? Can you see a connection between your attitude in the past, and your circumstances today?
You can still change it. It’s never too late for an attitude shift.
