Positive thinking is the belief that good things will happen and that one’s efforts will be crowned with success. It is something diametrically opposed to negative thinking which is being fearful, apprehensive and unsure of success in efforts. Positive thinking is based on optimism, hope and belief that hard work is never wasted. The effects of positive thinking are magical. Psychologists believe that nothing gears up people to make whole-hearted efforts to perform some task as positive thinking. The feeling tones up every muscle of the body and activates every nerve of the mind for a perfect coordination between the body and the mind to do the job when hope enlivens a human being; his/ her efforts become focused and earnest.
Positivity helps a person find a way in a difficult task or a tough situation. He starts feeling that something can be done to overcome the difficulties that are looming large at that moment. It is said that a serious person finds a way, while an idler finds an excuse. The difference between these two is that of attitude-of being hopeful or being without hope. A person who keeps hopes alive gives himself a chance to succeed, however difficult the task. He puts in earnest endeavours. He may get favour of luck, and help may come from unexpected quarters. On the other hand, a person who loses hope can never make a whole-hearted effort. His battle is half lost even before the start. It is said that life is not a bed of roses. Each person has to face difficult situation in his life. If one becomes fearful and apprehensive about the results, feelings of frustration, depression and disappointment will enter his mind and hinder his normal faculties of working. He may even end up poorer than he actually is.
We need to make a proper assessment of the task in hand, prepare a plan of action finding, the right method to perform it, and then make an integrated endeavour. Applying wrong methods even with positive thinking will result into the failure. Depending entirely on hope or unexpected help or a stroke of luck is foolishness not positivity. Hope is secondary to efforts. Positive thinking therefore essentially means to be hopeful of a good result after making the required effort. It is an attitude to go for the performance of a task with a hope that it can be done.
In the modern age of science there are many other ways like yoga, meditation, exercises, reading of inspiring books which can relieve us of tension, worry and make us relaxed and hopeful. Person’s biggest assets are his enthusiasm that enriches with the positive thinking. Never lose hope, keep cheerful put the best possible efforts with your total involvement, have confidence in you and you are the winner. Through positive thinking one can overcome the mountains. One who always think positively even in adverse circumstances wins. Positive thinking always pays. Life belongs to the ambitions.
I write a lot, which keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. There is always something to write about, always a new story to craft. Not writing, for me, is like trying to hold back a sneeze. Learning to write was the most powerful influence in my life. I can still remember the awe I felt when I realized I could put real words onto paper and tell out a story. From that first ‘a-ha’ moment I knew I wanted to write.
