Principles of Positive Thinking The following principles of Positive Thinking can help you determine whether your thoughts are indeed positive. circumstances and relationships. Positive Thinking is about seeing the negative for what it is and thereby neutralizing its power over you. They are reminders that your self-respect is the key to your approach to all situations. Self-respect means to be assertive and to set boundaries about what is acceptable and what is not.  14 1. Positive Thinking is the consistent refusal to engage in projection. in order to deal with situations.1 POSITIVE THINKING Positive Thinking is the ability to use the energy of the mind i. You are not deterred by negative appearances or falsehood but maintain an attitude of self-confidence and willingness to find benefit. then you are influenced by it. That means to refuse to project onto others the lures ad entrapments of negativity which lurk in . The aim is to reach a stage of neutrality where your mind is purely positive because your thoughts are completely free from the opposition or resistance of negativity. The foundation of Positive Thinking is to have self-respect and to be contented.

A Positive Thought is produced in the face of many things that are negative. You consider it cowardly to feel threatened by someone else. Sustained Positive Thinkings lead to neutrality. Self-respect is to affirm that you are a pure and peaceful soul. Positive Thinking is to develop an attitude of enlightened self interest. 4. A neutral thought is produced when there is no further negativity to contend with. 7. . Self respect means that you consider it inappropriate it criticize others. Spirituality identifies you as a pure. Projection distorts your perception and skews your vision of the world.

Unless you discern others elfish motives. when someone wants you to buy into a lie: but you don’t. 13. Respecting yourself gives you the power to discern. It occurs both within the self and through other people. faith. Negativity is subtle and invisible. . A Positive thinker has a personal ethical policy of honesty. 11. Your thoughts of contentment are not based on appearances. Self respect implies self confidence. This ensures that the faculties’ of intuition and perception are reliable. Thinking a positive thought in a simplistic way is form of denial because it ignores the web of negativity and the selfish motives of others around you. Positive Thinking is independent thinking based on higher principles and values. courage. You are not deceived by things that you feel Positive but in fact negative. perseverance. 12. you will get duped.  16 9. 14. peace. success or failure. places and things being as you expect. 15.

In fact it is like sitting on the throne (becoming king= building Self Esteem) and giving the same seat to others. He is ready to serve the society without losing his self esteem. This develops unique and uninfluenced consciousness in him about himself as well as others. There is no loss at all in godly student life. In other words. He is both King and Servant of the society. Like parents are both owners of the family and also servants. He believes in karma philosophy. . As we realize God. He believes what is good/bad for him is also good/bad for others. it is like give respect and take ( have or maintain) respect.
