Quote of the Day: Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will. Zig Ziglar
Positive Thinking Day is today. Today is all about attitude…. a positive attitude. It’s a lot like the ant, when faced with moving a rubber tree plant thought “I think I can”. With that in mind, I just know that everything will go fine from this day forward.
The power of positive thinking is absolutely astounding. Medical research confirms that a positive attitude works wonders at fighting disease and ailments, from the common cold to cancer. People with an “I think I can” attitude, are far more likely to succeed at work, and in accomplishing every goal they set in life.
Here are a few things that will get you thinking more positively:
- Only use positive words when talking. If you’re constantly telling yourself “I can’t” you may convince yourself that’s the truth. Replace these negative words with positive ones instead. Tell yourself you will do your best or that you will try your hardest instead.
- Believe you will succeed. There is nothing like believing in yourself to create a successful reality. Give yourself the benefit of the doubt and believe that you will succeed at fulfilling your goals.
- Give yourself credit. Often when we feel frustrated or upset we only concentrate on the bad things or the mistakes we’ve made instead of giving ourselves credit for what we do right. Allow yourself to feel confident about the things you have accomplished, even if you’ve messed up in other areas.
- Work on visualization. Picturing what you want to accomplish or the person you’d like to be can be a great motivator to getting you there and helping you feel more positive about the distance you have to go yet.
