“There is no faster way to bring about misfortune than to think it is coming. Thought is a powerful force, and it is a creative tool that many people give little energy to — or abandon in the face of any real threat to safety or stability.” Neale Donald Walsch
Our attitude influences our physical, mental and spiritual health. Underestimating the power of attitude can be dangerous. Choosing the positive requires attention and effort. Even those who seem naturally happy work at staying positive. These are two tools to help us move to a more positive state of being:
Surround yourself with positive people. Thoughts are highly contagious. Hang out with negative people and you will become negative. Find a group of positive people and you will find staying positive much easier. Watch the online communities you join as well.
Be aware of your thoughts. Affirmations are a useful tool for changing our way of thinking. These are “I am,” or “I can” statements which recognize the hidden powers of the subconscious mind.
Attitude is the foundation of everything we will do during this lifetime. It is important to make that foundation a good, positive one.
