The results you get by adopting and practicing positive thinking is not an overnight task. It is something that you gradually grow by conditioning the mind until it becomes a natural occurrence.
Positive thinking is like any other activity you do regularly
It is very similar to any activity that requires some sort of practice to refine its skill and make you better at it.
To give you some contrast, take for example a person who solely focuses on all the negative aspects of everything they do.
This person complains just about everything, is always talking about how bad life is and tends to self-sabotage his or her personal image.
As this person continues on this negative path, it becomes so natural that it is difficult to convince this person that there are better things in life, and that he or she has extraordinary capabilities to achieve and make great things happen…
On the other hand if this person would begin changing his or her attitude, and gradually focus on the positive things happening in his or her life, things would start to change positively and gradually as well until it too became natural.
This is part of the mental conditioning that you can begin.
It starts with simple things that you have control of in your every day activities. You have the control of choosing which type of music to listen to for example, or what you choose to cook. Everything that has an effect on your senses you can usually control and you can make the decisions as to what choice you make that will help or dampen your negative or positive spirit.
When you make a conscious choice of focusing on the positive things, you begin to see changes in your life. You begin to see opportunities everywhere. As you begin to act on these opportunities you journey of extraordinary experiences begins. Your perceive wonderful and inspiring things that you did not experience otherwise.
You begin to feel more joy, and a more fulfilled life full of purpose.
Why not begin to make conscious choices about what you allow into your day to day experiences, what deserves your attention and what doesn’t, what serves you better and what doesn’t. Even the people you surround yourself with has an impact.
