Positive thinking, the key to success

Benjamin Disraeli, British Statesman and former Prime Minister once said, “nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think.”

Whatever we do often comes out to be a true reflection of our thoughts. For instance, people who whine and surrender to the belief that they do not have a life or are stuck in an abusive relationship will probably end up right there.

The law of attraction also states that you attract and manifest the things you think about. If you obsess about the problems you have now, you will stay stuck in the problems. But if you concentrate on where you want to go from there, you’ll start to move forward again and attract helpful events, in an ever-increasing measure, that will help you to gain momentum and improve your prospects. It pays to focus on what you want, not on what you don’t want.

Those who might have watched a film called The Secret, or even read the book, will agree with me that everything that comes into our lives is attracted to us, through us, by the desirable quality of the images we hold in our minds. This simply means that when you think positive thoughts and focus on them intently, just like a magnet you will attract positive things in your life. You can therefore turn your specific and hopeful wishes for money or great relationships into strong magnetic intentions by focusing your thoughts on these desires and nothing else.

That being said, not everything we think about happens. What you think about most, over and over again, and that’s with the greatest amount of personal energy and attention, will indeed grow, manifest and come into your life. For instance, if you focus primarily on the feeling of happiness, you literally experience an expanse of happiness in the moment and you also attract future moments of happiness too.
We all deserve great things in life and all those can happen through our good intensive thoughts. Focus on what you want; you can do this by just starting with a list of day to day things to do.

Set out good intentions for the day; picture how beautiful, smooth and flowing your day will be. This will then be followed by an easy flow of your thoughts. Do away with the stress and easily get ahead with plenty of enthusiasm and energy. It’s simple, and thinking like this will not hurt you. After all you have nothing to lose at the end of it all, but plenty to gain.
Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, author of The Power of Positive Thinking said, “Formulate and stamp indelibly on your mind a mental picture of yourself as succeeding. Hold this picture tenaciously and never permit it to fade. Your mind will seek to develop this picture!”

All you need is to picture and see it in your mind, and then definitely you will have it in your life. For your life to change for the better, you need to shift your focus and change the way you think. You can start by imagining yourself enjoying all those you desire as if they are in your possession already. With this being done, you will gradually attract the pictures you hold foremost in your mind.

The secret is to be patient, all the wealthy and successful men we see out there are mostly a product of positive thinking. Most of them never studied nor do they know where school gates are. They dreamt living large and slowly those thoughts became a reality. Little by little, you will become comfortable working with your thoughts; especially when you understand that most thoughts don’t have instant manifesting power. Affirm to yourself that you can have anything you set and focus your mind on.

Keep your mind trained on positive directions. Keep your mind flooded with positive thoughts, and keep giving your desires energy derived from your positive thoughts. Try it and see if it helps!!
