Good evening everyone. Today we are going to talk about how to “Make Positive Thinking Work For You”. Crazy right? I know, I know. But seriously there are those of you that look at the “Glass as half full” while others look at the “Glass as half empty”. The positive Thinker will be the one to look at the glass as half full, while the negative thinker looks at the glass as half empty. Understand this is a metaphor that can be applied to any life event, and or circumstance in every way.

You should be a little skeptical, as many of us are or have been throughout our lives. Whatever your thoughts or position is on the power of positive thinking has a direct relationship with how we were raised and taught to be in our values, morals, and thought processes. Positive thinking is a learned behavior and it takes work. One thing to know is no matter how well you do with thinking positive bad or negative things can and will still happen. You need to understand you can only control what you can control. There are outside influences and forces that unfortunately bring that negative shit into our lives and there is not much we can do about it.
As an example of an uncontrollable negative event would be a loved one being diagnosed with say cancer. You can’t control that and as ugly as that is you need to try and think positively about it. How? Here is the hard part, but for me, I would think about things like the good times I have been able to have with this loved one. Maybe instead I would say great I have X amount of time left with the loved one so I need to make every moment we have left count and what we can do to make that time as wonderful as we possibly can. That’s not to say that there won’t be brief moments and lapses in judgment that I will be negative but I will do everything in my power as you should limit those instances and time.
Positive Thinking Testing
I encourage you to test the power of positive thinking. Start small and simple. If you have been unemployed or laid off as an example due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, and looking for work. Write on a sticky note “I will get a job today!” and put it somewhere where you will see it often throughout the day every day. Now here comes the hard part. Take the 10 seconds to read it every time you see the sticky note. Then you need to put faith in what’s written on the sticky note. Until you believe in without question!
It may not happen overnight or even in the next week. But it will happen when you not only believe it but when that one job and position is right for you.
Positive thinking for me goes hand in hand in my mind with the thought that everything happens for a reason. Now we may not understand that reasoning and that’s okay. It’s not our job to understand the reasoning behind certain life events. That’s the job of the gods. And we are no one to judge or question what the gods put before us.
Try it you just might be surprised at the results and how things work out.
