The power of positive thinking is exactly what it sounds like. By thinking positive thoughts, you can influence yourself to make things happen. This technique involves reaching into yourself and changing your thought processes. Let’s say two people are trying to complete the same difficult task. Both people are equally intelligent and equally skilled. One of those people has a positive mental attitude. They are confident that they can complete the task. The other is full of anxiety and self-doubt. They are worried they can’t do it. Who do you think will probably be able to complete the task fastest, and with fewer mistakes? Chances are very good that the confident individual would finish first, and with better quality work. Why? It’s simple. People make mistakes when they are stressed out. When they are upset, depressed, frustrated, or angry, they have a harder time dealing with things. How many times have you been trying to do something and got very frustrated or even angry? Did you find it harder to get it done? Maybe you were trying to repair something and you kept dropping your tools, and the more it happened, the angrier you got. And of course, the angrier you got, the more it happened. Negativity affects you in many ways, but it can make it extremely difficult to get things done. When you think negative thoughts, it will often affect your behavior without you even realizing it. Instead, you must focus on thinking positively. Whenever negative thoughts enter your mind, you have to learn to push them right back out again or replace them with positive thoughts. In a later section, I’m going to give you a few examples of negative thoughts, as well as the positive thoughts you could replace them with. You will learn how to eliminate negativity from your life in order to improve it. For now, you should just realize that the power of positive thinking most definitely does work. It works by changing your attitude toward a situation. This opens your mind to getting more done, completing tasks easier, and having the confidence it takes to make things happen. So, can it help make your dreams come true? Most definitely! When you are happier, more confident, and more capable, you can accomplish a lot more. And there’s no “magic” in that!
