It is very common to hear people say "Think Positive" to a friend or relative who's been through rocky times. Few people, however, take this seriously. On the contrary, they'd rather ruin their health and poison their lives with negative thoughts. They hardly ever count their blessings and feel responsible for all the bad things in their lives. Their mistake is that they never see the good things or that silver lining in every cloud. They never see beyond the storm, they just see the storm. It's the way they talk to themselves - that's what it boils down to, to my mind.
Positive self-talk can lead us to a much better quality of life. We can then realise that we are not always reaponsible for all the bad things that happen to us, we can believe, after all, in the promise of the dawn after the darkest of nights. On the other hand, negative thoughts drain our energy and, as a result, we become much weaker. Anyway, I believe that through positive self-talk, we can all expect great things to happen in the forseeable future.
How positive or how negative are you?
