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. Positive thinking is a choice and it can become a healthy habit.
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 positive thinking 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.
