Default The Power of Positive Thinking

Positive thinking can get you far in life. I guess you could have called me a negative person in the past. I only saw the cup as half empty. Now I have to see it as half full. I feel that positive thinking will get me further in life. I have a much better attitude than I have had in the past and people seem to like me better for it.

This is a good topic.

A lot of folks spend a lot of time improving their bodies but don't work on cultivating their minds. Thought, or outlook, is a part of this.

I don't walk around thinking, gee, everything is great Wally. On the other hand, I have learned that certain things are a cancer that can eat lives - like cynicism and anger and resentment and selfishness.

Working on these in my own life has given me a much better outlook, and I am happier. Much happier.

Way too many folks focus on the crap in life instead of the good. Your life, your choice. I've been on both sides. I prefer one over the other.

I am not sitting here on a high horse saying I don't have bad days. I want to make that clear.

Yes I agree this is a great topic. I feel that when we have a positive outlook on everything things run so much smoother. And life is just easier to take in if you are upbeat about things.

I've been debating starting a sub-forum dedicated to mental strength, brain training, positivity, emotional, spiritual nurturing, that sort of thing.

Not sure what you would call it, or if people think it's a good idea.
