Think Positive For Life
Thinking positive is a way of life. In order for us to live a successful, positive life we must have a positive attitude. It’s critically important to develop a positive attitude. You can’t have positive success without a positive life and you can’t have a positive life without a positive attitude. The ability to think positive is a result of a positive attitude toward life.
Your attitude reflects what's in your heart and your thinking reflects what's in your mind and your heart. It's difficult to separate these. It stands to reason that if you have a negative attitude you're prone to thinking negative or "stinking thinking" as Zig Ziglar calls it. Likewise, if your attitude is positive you will most likely develop a life long passion for positive thinking.
Develop a Winning Attitude
The thing about thinking positive is that it's a developed trait and it all starts with your heart and your mind. If you want to think positive, then you have got to make a commitment to change. You have to make a willing commitment to become positive.
The first thing you've got to do is guard your heart and mind from those things that are destructive. You instinctively know what they are and if you have any doubt, just read the newspaper and watch the news on TV. How many positive articles or news casts do you see? Not many. This world is filled with negativism and that's why it is so important to fill your heart and mind with good, clean, positive thoughts.
There is great wisdom in the words "whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things". In fact, in some circles it's considered our duty to think this way because it helps us help others.
