Choosing to think positively is not going to make all your problems disappear overnight; however, it is going to make a huge, positive difference to how you deal with, challenge, accept or fight these challenges and, as a result and with persistence, a more positive outcome.
Sound like mumbo-jumbo? All that “the Universe will deliver” language you’ve heard before. Well, I make no apologies for that. I choose positive thinking every day and it has had a profound impact on my life. Real, measurable impact. I choose to walk, having been told I would never walk again. I choose to have a daughter (now 22 and utterly amazing) after I was told I could not and would not have children. I choose to work and fill my life with activities and challenges after being told I would not even live to see my 40’s.
So has choosing a positive attitude been an easy, snap decision that resolved all these challenges in the blink of an eye? Of course not; it has been a choice I make every day, a habit I have chosen to create and embrace. Has choosing this positive attitude had an impact on my results – unquestionably. I choose my own outcomes because I look at what is possible, not what is impossible; I focus on what I can do not what I cannot; I celebrate my achievements rather than focussing on my wobbles. I choose positive thought and I get results.
What can you choose to be positive about in your thinking from today? I’d love to hear what you choose.
Today’s blog was inspired by @gillymonk one of the fabulous regulars at #thebreakfastclub on Twitter. Thank you Gilly – I hope you like how I chose to write about your suggested topic.
Have a wonderful day
