Positive Thinking Can Head Off Adversity

June 16, 2011

The experts tell us that positive thinking is required if we want to succeed in any task. They also imply that negative thinking brings adversity into our lives. Injuries in the workplace occur most to those who dislike their jobs. These people are also inclined to become sick more often than their co-workers do. Negative thinking attracts the worst possibilities, and the most untimely happenings. Some say that bad things happen in threes and adversity is no exception! While we bring problems into our lives with misdirected thoughts, we can also attract positive energy to us.

Have you ever noticed that some people rarely call in sick and in fact, seem to enjoy the finer things that life offers? These people enjoy their jobs and their home life. We would assume these positive thinkers, carefree. This is usually not the case at all! Positive thinking people experience negative thinking and the stress that their minds create too. What is the major difference then? Most well minded individuals have a maintenance program, which consists of hobbies, and many activities.

They enjoy the days at work just about, as much as the moments at home…they play as hard as they work. These people eat right and exercise daily. Science has proven that these two habits boost energy and mind power! That is right a well balanced diet joined with regular activity makes you smarter. Does it enhance your ambition and decrease your hesitation? Not necessarily – many force themselves to do what they have to do. Some of these people even suffer from low self-esteem and perfectionism. In total, they think negative more than you may assume.

How do you get the most from self-help and positive thinking?

  • Pay close attention to your thoughts and change them when necessary.
  • Think about what you want to accomplish.
  • Listen to yourself and other people.
  • Of course, exercise and eat a well-balanced diet.
  • Read leading material and watch coaching programs.
  • Learn something new every day, or at least acknowledge that you do.
  • Spend quality time with family and friends.
  • Volunteer your time and share the knowledge that has become wisdom.
  • Give of yourself freely without expectation.

Realize that the reason adversities come in threes is that one mishap creates more of the same energy.

When we don’t like it, we label them problems!”
