INTRODUCTION TO POSITIVE THINKINGPositive thinkingis one of the most important things you need to practice throughoutyour life. The only problem is that a lot of people think they know what positive thinking is -- but instead is really practicing wishful thinking.Here's the difference. Wishful thinking is saying something like, "I know things will get better. I'm sure I'll get a better job. Things will work out in the end. Eventually I'll meetsomeone I really like. I just have to keep trying. I'm bound to make more money -- I justknow it." These are all examples of wishful thinking!Positive thinkingis more than just something you do when things go wrong or when youtry to correct a situation.Positive thinkingis a way of living, it's a practice, it's atechnique that you need to incorporate into your daily life if you have any intentions of changing things or accomplishing your goals. You can't suddenly start and then stop whenthings get better.Positive thinkingrequires that you get rid of all your negative thought patterns and createa new belief system. There isn't a book out there that can do this for you. Why? Becauseyou have to train your mind to work differently. Learning the art of  positive thinking from a book would be like learning to play football or do aerobics from a book. You'll getsome great ideas -- but you need to practice, train and work with someone who can showyou how to throw or catch a football properly. You need to have someone train you sothat you do your aerobics properly and don't form bad habits or try to cut corners.Here's an example of what some people think is positive thinking. A person may losetheir job and then says: "Oh I know I'll get a job, I have to. I'm just going to take my timeand I'll get a job soon. " That's being optimistic -- but it's not necessarily incorporating positive thinking. Optimism is an attitude. Positive thinking is a frame of mind that getsresults. In order to get the develop this frame of mind you need to train your mind -- nothave a simple attitude. Norman Vincent Peale wrote a great book called the "The Power of Positive Thinking."Many of my students have read this book, which I think is terrific. But it's not enough toget you to change and create your new life. Murphy goes through the whole concept of  positive thinking and how your subconscious mind works. But unless there are fewconcrete exercises and long affirmations. Unless you're self-motivated you can't possiblycreate the positive frame of mind he discusses on your own.Positive thinking is just one technique among many that will help you change your life.Chances are that 90% of people who say they are practicing a form of positive thinkingare doing it all wrong. 90% of my students who told me they practiced positive thinking before taking my course soon discovered they were doing it wrong -- and they had readMurphy's book.
Even if you practiced Positive Thinking alone -- and did it right -- it could take you years before you create the kind of change you want. Why? Because Positive Thinking is onlyone element -- only one member of your powerful mind power team. Think of it this way-- you have 10 people rowing your boat in life. Now you convince one of them to go in acertain direction. But the other 9 are still going in the opposite direction. How long doyou think it would take that boat to turn around? Never! When you only practice PositiveThinking you only have one of your rowers working for you.With Creating Power you'll learn to incorporate the art of Positive Thinking into your  daily life so you create the changes that you want while accomplishing all your goals.You get a complete system that gets all your powers working for you. And you get personal coaching so you receive the proper instruction and guidance as you train your mind and create a new way of living.The Power of Positive ThinkingBy Remez SassonPositive thinking is a mental attitude that admits into the mind thoughts, words andimages that are conductive to growth, expansion and success. It is a mental attitude thatexpects good and favorable results. A positive mind anticipates happiness, joy, health anda successful outcome of every situation and action. Whatever the mind expects, it finds. Not everyone accepts or believes in positive thinking. Some consider the subject as justnonsense, and others scoff at people who believe and accept it. Among the people whoaccept it, not many know how to use it effectively to get results. Yet, it seems that manyare becoming attracted to this subject, as evidenced by the many books, lectures andcourses about it. This is a subject that is gaining popularity.It is quite common to hear people say: "Think positive!", to someone who feels down andworried. Most people do not take these words seriously, as they do not know what itreally means, or do not consider it as useful and effective. How many people do youknow that ever stop to think what the power of positive thinking means?An ExampleAllan applied for a new job, but as his self-esteem was low, and he considered himself asa failure and unworthy of success, he was sure that he was not going to get the job. Hehad a negative attitude towards himself, and believed that the other applicants were better and more qualified than him. Allan manifested this attitude because he was not admittedto most of the jobs he applied to, and consequently had negative past experience.His mind was filled with negative thoughts and fears concerning the job for the wholeweek before the job interview. He was sure he would be rejected. On the day of theinterview he got up late, and to his horror he discovered that the shirt he had planned towear was dirty, and the other one needed ironing. As it was already too late, he went outwith a wrinkled shirt.
During the interview he was tense, displayed a negative attitude, worried about his shirt,and felt hungry because he did not have enough time to eat breakfast. All this distractedhis mind and made it difficult for him to focus on the interview. His overall behavior made a bad impression, and consequently he materialized his fear and did not get the job.Jim applied for the same job too, but approached the matter in a different way. He wassure that he was going to get the job. During the week preceding the interview he oftenvisualized himself making a good impression and getting the job.In the evening before the interview he prepared the clothes he was going to wear, andwent to sleep a little earlier. On day of the interview he woke up earlier than usual, andhad ample time to eat breakfast, and then to arrive to the interview before the scheduledtime.He got the job because he made a good impression. Of course he had also the proper qualifications for the job, but so had Allan.What do we learn from these two stories? Is there any magic employed here? No, it is allnatural. When the attitude is positive we entertain pleasant feelings and constructiveimages, and see in our mind's eye what we really want to happen. This brings brightnessto the eyes, more energy and happiness. The whole being broadcasts good will, happinessand success. Even the health is affected in a beneficial way. We walk tall and the voice ismore powerful. Our body language shows the way you feel inside.Positive and negative thinking are both contagious. All of us affect, in one way or another, the people we meet. This happens instinctively and on a subconscious level,through thoughts and feelings transference and through body language. People sense our aura and are affected by our thoughts. Is it any wonder that we want to be around positive persons and shun negative ones? People are more disposed to help us if we are positive.They dislike and avoid anyone broadcasting negativity. Negative thoughts, words and attitude bring up negative and unhappy moods and actions.When the mind is negative, poisons are released into the blood, which cause moreunhappiness and negativity. This is the way to failure, frustration and disappointment.Practical InstructionsIn order to turn the mind toward the positive, inner work and training are required.Attitude and thoughts do not change overnight.Read about this subject, think about its benefits and persuade yourself to try it. The power of thoughts is a mighty power that is always shaping our life. This shaping is usuallydone subconsciously, but it is possible to make the process a conscious one. Even if theidea seems strange give it a try, as you have nothing to lose, but only to gain. Ignore whatothers might say or think about you, if they discover that you are changing the way youthink.
