Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will……..Zig Ziglar
The power of mind is phenomenal. Research has shown that in depressed people with a negative attitude, lymphocytes, which are the disease fighting cells in the body, respond less than in people with a positive outlook.
The greatest challenge faced by adults is the application of new ideas. This is because, past reinforced ideas and behaviours are deeply ingrained. Another challenge is changing one’s habits – even after several months of change of a habit and even after experiencing the benefits, people often regress into old negative habits. This is so because the discomfort and stress of the change has not been fully overcome.
Using your subconscious mind through visual and verbal reinforcements to develop a positive outlook can have a profound impact in maintaining better health, overcoming challenges, changes of habit and achieving levels of attainment you may not normally have thought to be feasible.
You must recognise you uniqueness as a person. Having quotes, poems, ideas which are inspiring and self talk such as ‘I am fit and energetic’, ‘ I am successful’, ‘ I am a great professional’, ‘I make a lot of money’ etc. You can write them, say them aloud, and put them up in front at work and at home. Using visual pictures by putting up pictures of one receiving awards / recognitions, owning a bigger home, bike/car will reinforce your drive to attain these and spur you to positive action.
You should aim high in life. All success happen twice, first in your mind and then in reality. You first have to create a mental picture of the attainment of what you desire and then be ready and willing to do what one needs to do, to achieve what one wants in life.
Thus having a positive attitude, dedicated effort and application of the power of the human conscious and sub conscious mind can do wonders.
