Positive Psychology is simply thinking the way God thinks.
It's the way God intends for us to think and feel.
It's getting in agreement with God.
Although it might seem presumptuous to believe that
humans can actually think the thoughts of God, we
must always remember that God created us in his
image, and He gave us the ability to think and feel.
It's reasonable to assume that God must have
designed our minds to function best when we fill our
minds with certain types of thoughts. It's
also reasonable to assume that God designed our
hearts to function best when certain types of
emotions fill our heart.
The creator of the universe actually did have a plan
for our hearts and minds, and that plan forms the
foundation of Christian Psychology. When your
mind is full of thoughts consistent with God's love,
your mind is exactly the way God means for it to be.
When your heart is full of emotions consistent with
His love, your emotions are healthy, and they are
exactly the way God means for them to be. This
forms the corner stone and focus of all Christian
Psychology. When you think the way that God
thinks, your heart and mind are full of God's love.
Your thoughts are positive and your emotions are
healthy. They are exactly the way God means
for them to be.
When dysfunction, despair,
depression, negativity and anxiety take over your
heart and mind, you are not thinking the way that
God thinks. You have it all wrong, and until
you get it right, your life will be harder than it
needs to be, and if you fill your heart and mind
with the toxic waste of the twenty-first century,
there is a good chance you will become sick.
The cure for what ails the human heart and mind is a
liberal dose of God's love. You must fill your
mind with thoughts that are consistent with God's
love until those thoughts reign supreme. You
must fill your heart with emotions consistent with
God's love to drive the toxic negative emotions out
of your mind. You must learn to think thoughts
of love, and let that love percolate down into your
heart so that you start feeling good once again.
There is no mystery here. You must
simply start thinking the way
that God thinks.
CHRISTIAN POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY GIVES
YOU THE POWER TO MAKE THE TRIP
Christian Positive Psychology is based on the overwhelming
and unrelenting power of God's love and it's ability
to change lives.
Secular psychology suffers from a power
deficiency. Psychology worships at the altar
of insight. People believe if they get insight
into their problems, somehow the problems will
magically disappear. Unfortunately,
insight may point people in the right direction, but
it does not give them the power to make the trip.
Insight may tell you where you
want to go, but power doesn't emanate from insight..
Everyone knows that obesity is associated with
hypertension, heart disease, and stroke, and yet the
rate of obesity relentlessly spirals out of control.
Insight doesn't make people exercise or eat healthy
foods. Insight is not power.
Christian Positive Psychology is all about God's
love. Christian Psychology does not have a
God's love is real power.
It points you in the right direction and gives you
the power to make the trip.
POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY TEACHES YOU HOW TO MAXIMIZE THE
POWER OF GOD'S LOVE
You maximize the power of God's love by sending
it out to other people. Healthy hearts and
minds have an outward focus.
People suffering from depression and emotional
problems have an unhealthy inward focus. Their
inward focus is the recipe for self-destruction,
especially when that focus is negative and critical.
The cure for depression and many emotional problems
is an outward focus. They need to stop
relentlessly ruminating over their problems and to
start sending love to other people.
love flows through an unseen pipeline. The
flow goes from God to you, and then from you to
other people. You control the flow by how much
love you send out to others.
Godís love works best when you
pass it around. Itís after you pass it on that its power
really kicks in. The more love you pass on, the more that
comes your way. The less you send to others, the less that
flows to you. People donít realize that when they send
only a trickle of love to others, only a trickle comes back to
them from God. What goes around comes around.
The love that you send to others didnít originate in your heart.
God put it there, and when you send it to others, God gives you
more than enough to take its place. When God sends his
love your way, it doesnít come as a trickle. It comes as a
tidal wave. He fills your cup until it overflows. He
keeps filling it until you have a clean mind and a pure heart,
and then He fills it some more. The more you give, the
more you get. The more you give, the faster it comes, and
the quicker your emotional problems are healed. The more
you give, the sooner you become a whole person.
God has an inexhaustible ocean of love that contains enough for
everyone. God will give you all the love you need if you
are willing to spread it around. If you donít send his
love to others, you die of spiritual thirst. When you send
his love to others, your cup overflows.
Godís plans are elegant in their simplicity. Even a child
can understand them. No one should ever die of spiritual
thirst in Godís world; thereís plenty of love for everyone.
You can have all the love you want if you send it out to other
POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY HELPS YOU GET IN AGREEMENT WITH
What is the meaning of positive?
The word positive has only been around for about
seven hundred years. According to
Merriam-Webster, the first known use of the word
positive was in the 14th century. That was
about a hundred years before Columbus sailed to
America. Until then, people did not have a
positive attitude, because the word positive did not
exist in the English language. Before then
they had to use other words to describe a positive
attitude. Probably they simply said that
someone had a good attitude.
The word positive means congruent and
non-ambivalent. It's an operational definition
signifying that my mind, heart, and will are all
congruent and committed to moving together in a
non-ambivalent fashion to achieve a worthwhile
All three components of my personality ( my
heart, mind, will) are heading in the same direction
and working together to achieve the same purpose.
Congruent is a big word with a simple meaning. The
three parts that create your personality are your
mind, heart and will. If those three
components of who you are get in agreement, they are
congruent. They all want the same thing, they
are all headed in the same direction, and they are
all working together toward the same objective.
All parts of you must work together and head in the
same direction if you want to live your dreams.
If your will, mind, and heart are heading in
different directions, then you will be pulled apart
and become dysfunctional because you are not in
agreement with yourself. You must be congruent
if you want good things to happen. That's why
Jesus said that we need to love God with all our
heart, all our mind, and all our strength. He
was stating a simple truth. In our
relationship with God, we must be congruent, or it
will not work. If your heart wants one thing
and your mind wants another, you are doomed to a
life of failure and frustration. Being
congruent simply means we are in agreement with
ourselves. Being positive means we are in
agreement with ourselves.
Positive is also non-ambivalent.
Ambivalence is the enemy of a positive heart and
mind. Ambivalence is like a wave in the sea
blown by the wind. Whenever the wind changes,
the waves change. You can't behave like waves
of the ocean if you want to have a positive life.
External forces don't decide which direction you
sail on the ocean of your dreams. You set your
course and continue sailing regardless of the
direction of the wind.
Ambivalent people are never committed to a purpose.
They go with the flow, and they end up in Nowhere
A positive mind is always non-ambivalent.
Positive people are convinced and committed to a
course of action regardless of the consequences.
Opposition does not deter them, and storms don't
stop them. They conquer the storms of life.
Storms simply confirm they are sailing on the ocean
of their dreams.
CHRISTIAN POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY
CHANGES YOUR EXPECTATIONS
Positive Christian Psychology helps people get
better by changing their expectations. Jesus
created a world ruled by your expectations.
You don't get what you want. You get what you
expect. It doesn't matter if your expectations
are positive or negative, you will get what you
Jesus understood the laws of the moral universe
because he created those laws. He knew how
things work. When Jesus tells us how to live,
he isn't just giving good advice. He is
stating in absolute and unequivocal terms the way he
made things work. That's why he said, "As you
believe, so shall it be done unto you." Jesus
created a universe in which expectations rule.
It doesn't matter that much what you want.
It's what you expect that counts.
Jesus said, "Ask
and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock
and the door will be opened." I am to ask
expectantly, seek expectantly, and knock
expectantly. Jesus came to change our
expectations. He taught that positive
expectations are the foundation for a positive life.
CHRISTIAN POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY
RESULTS IN WHOLENESS
Wholeness happens when you are spiritually alive
with a healthy heart and mind. You connect
with God in your spirit, and your heart and mind are
full of God's love. Even with sickness in your
body, you can be whole in your spirit, heart, and
mind. God has
a plan for your life that is better than anything
you can imagine. Part of that plan is called
wholeness. You can have wholeness when an arm
or leg is missing. Your eyes may be blind, but
your spirit can have twenty-twenty vision. You
can have wholeness even while you have cancer.
Nothing can chase wholeness out of your life when
you are spiritually alive, and your heart and mind
are full of Godís love.
created you, and He knows you better than you know
yourself. He knows what ails you, and He knows
the cure. No matter what therapies you have
tried in the past, if you have not experienced God's
love, you are missing out on the most powerful
medicine in the universe. God's love always
makes your life better. If you want your body
to heal in the quickest possible time, a liberal
application of God's love will make it happen
faster. If you want to restore wholeness to
your heart and mind, you need to max out on God's
POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY IS THE DEFINITIVE CURE FOR DAMAGED EMOTIONS
God's love will not change the bad
things that happened to you in the past, but it will erase their
power. God's love is more powerful than any problem, and it
will move mountains of difficult out of your life when His love
takes over your heart and mind.
CHRISTIAN POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY MEANS
THAT YOU ARE SPIRITUALLY ALIVE
You audaciously dare to call God your Father.
God is a Spirit, and He is the one who makes your
spirit come alive. Thatís why you call him Father.
Spiritual birth happens the moment you open your heart to Godís love
and dare to call him Father.
Most people get nervous when you talk about
spiritual birth. Itís a confusing subject, and they have lots
of questions. How much theology do you need to know? How
many scriptures do you need to read? Do you need to pray extra
hard for a long time to make it happen? Are there any formulas
you have to follow? Are there any special words you need to
say? Do you need to say them in any particular order? Is
there a special place you need to go to make it happen? Can
you do it with your eyes open, or do they have to be closed?
All of these questions focus on you, seducing you
into believing that spiritual birth is something you do, instead of
something that God does to you.
The truth is that God is the one who does it all.
He is the one who makes it happen. As soon as you open your
heart to his love and call him Father, He does the rest.
He isnít going to ask you to write an essay to find
out if you really understand what you are doing. He isnít
going to give you a multiple choice test asking you one-hundred
questions on theology, and if you donít score at least seventy
percent, you donít get to call him Father. He wonít ask for a
personal interview or references from religious people. He
wonít demand that you are perfect before you can have a
relationship. He wonít require that you donít sin for three
days in a row before it can happen. God loves you
unconditionally, and that means there are no preconditions to having
a relationship with him.
CHRISTIAN POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY IS
COMMITTED TO EXCELLENCE
You are a child of
God destined to achieve excellence and live with a heart of love.
God gave you the ability to achieve excellence in at least one area
of your life. Your area of excellence is unique. No one
has your identical talents and abilities, and no one can exactly
duplicate your area of excellence. You have a unique
contribution to make to the world. If you were not here, the
world would be diminished by your absence.
You donít need to be like anyone else. You
donít need to be like everyone else. Instead, you need to be
yourself and be the best you can be.
Excellence is not just for a few special people.
Itís a gift that God gives to everyone. You are made in the
image of God, and excellence is a reflection of that image.
Itís an expression of who you are after the power of Godís love
rolls through your heart and mind and makes you into a new person.
Jesus said, ďTo whom much is given, much shall be
required.Ē God has given you more than you know, and you must
spend the rest of your life developing the excellence He placed
inside. God doesnít make mistakes. He has big
expectations and positive plans for your life, and He is backing you
up with the most powerful force in the universe, his love.
CHRISTIAN POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY HAS A SPECIFIC FOCUS
The focus of your mind makes a big difference.
Jesus said, "First, set your mind on God's kingdom
of love, and everything else will come to you as
well." Our mental focus makes us or breaks us.
You must get your priorities right when you choose
the focus of your mind. When you choose your
mental focus, you choose the direction of your life.
You build your future thought by thought, and you
become what you think about all day long.
Focus on the right things.
CHRISTIAN POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY HAS A
Your attitude is your way of looking at things,
and it's a choice.
I lived outside the United States for twenty-eight
years in more than twenty countries. For
sixteen years, I lived in Saudi Arabia. As a
result of living in so many dissimilar cultures, I
can state beyond the shadow of a doubt that not
everyone looks at things in the same way. In
fact, cultures often look at the same thing in
radically different ways.
Attitude is everything when you live in different
cultures. If you have the wrong attitude, you
won't survive long in some countries. The
wrong attitude makes your work difficult or
impossible, and the right attitude makes it easy.
The wrong attitude may result in deportation or even
Attitude is a mind set. It's the way you
choose to look at yourself and at the world.
The single most important decision you will ever
make is the set of your mind. If you get it
right, you have an awesome life. If your mind
set is wrong, your destiny is failure, frustration,
and self-destruction. You must have the right
attitude, and it must be positive. There is no
other way to reach your potential and to live your
CHRISTIAN POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY
INSTALLS A POSITIVE OPERATING SYSTEM IN YOUR MIND
When God created my mind, He designed it to run
most efficiently using a Positive Operating System.
He made a software package called POS Version 1.0.
POS stands for Positive Operating System.
Version 1.0 means there is only one version.
No updates are necessary, and no revisions are
required. POS Version 1.0 is the optimum
operating system for my mind.
Positive thinking truly is the right
type of thinking. Positive thinking is more
than a good idea. It's the way your mind was
designed to work. God designed your mind to
function best when itís under the influence of
If I think enough positive thoughts, my mind
gradually shifts over to a Positive Operating
System. Two thousand years ago, the Apostle
Paul said, ďWhatever is true, whatever is noble,
whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is
lovely, whatever is admirable, whatever is
excellent, or worthy of praise, think on these
things.Ē This was Paulís method of installing
POS Version 1.0. What worked for Paul will
also work for me. I can install a Positive
Operating System by putting positive things into my
has given you all the tools you need to have a positive mind.
People complain that it's difficult to live as a positive person in
a negative world. They talk as if the odds are stacked
against them. They should accept their miserable existence and
learn to live with a negative mind.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
God gave you the power of repetition to install a positive operating
system. If you consistently and persistently repeat positive
thoughts, it is absolutely inevitable that your mind will fill up
with positive things, and before long, your mind will start
repeating those same positive thoughts back to you.
CHRISTIAN POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY
TRANSFORMS YOU THROUGH THE RENEWING YOUR MIND.
The mind is the
door through which the power of Godís love enters your life.
Thatís why the Bible says, ďBe transformed by the renewing of your
mind.Ē In order to have a new life, you need a new way of
No matter what path you walk to personal
transformation, all paths eventually converge on the mind.
That doesnít mean all paths lead to God. It does mean that God
designed your mind to be the door through which you enter the world
of change. You can change your life by changing what you put
into your mind.
The power of the mind is so great that there is
considerable confusion regarding its role in spirituality. For
many people, the mind becomes a stumbling block. They elevate
it to such a high position that they appear to worship at the altar
of the mind. Others turn their back on it, believing that
religious faith and the mind are in conflict, and they choose faith.
Those who worship at the altar of the mind often
believe their mind is everything. They elevate it almost to
the status of God. They preach a gospel of mental omnipotence
that is supposed to cure all ailments. If they can just get
things straight in their mind, everything will be fine.
Those who have an adversarial relationship between
their mind and faith, struggle to bring their unruly mind into
submission. Often they hold their mind in contempt, because
many of their thoughts make them uncomfortable. They hope
their spirituality will give them control over their unwanted,
disturbing, and frightening thoughts. They try to ignore their
mind, hoping it will go away, or at least stop irritating them with
thoughts they donít want to think. They try to divorce
themselves from their mind claiming all they need to do is live by
faith. If they have enough faith, everything will turn out
The truth lies between these two extremes.
designed your mind to be the door through which the power of his
love flows into your life. Your mind is where Godís love is
brought to bear on the problems of life. When you fill your
mind with the power of Godís love, miraculous things happen.
But it wasnít the mind that made them take place. It was Godís
love that made the miracle come to pass.
CHRISTIAN POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY FILLS
YOUR MIND WITH GOOD THINGS
God gave you a good mind and He expects you to
fill it with good things. Your mind is not a dumpster for the
toxic waste of the twenty-first century. You don't want to
allow negative thoughts and limitations to fill your mind.
The Apostle Paul made it very clear what we should
put into our minds. He said,
ďWhatever is true, whatever is noble,
whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is
admirable, whatever is excellent, or worthy of praise, think on
The way you get a positive mind is to fill it with
CHRISTIAN POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY IS BASED ON GOD'S
LOVE The most positive force in
the universe is God's love. The most powerful force in the
universe is God's love. The most important fact in the
universe is that God loves and accepts you the way you are, but He
loves you too much to let you stay that way. God created you
and knows you better than you know your self. He knows what
ails you, and He know the cure. A liberal dose of God's love
will make you into a new person with a new way of thinking and
CHRISTIAN POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY NEUTRALIZES AND ELIMINATES THE POWER OF
God loves and accepts you the
way your are, but He loves you too much to let you stay that
way. That is your ultimate reason for hope. God is
on your side. He wants to fill your heart with his love,
banish your limitations, and wash away the plague of negative
thoughts from your mind. Godís love carries away your
burden of guilt. His love not only wipes the slate clean,
it also throws the slate away. God has a plan for your
life that is better than anything you can imagine. There
is no limit to how good your life can become when you max out on
the power of His love.
CHRISTIAN POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY USES
AFFIRMATIONS TO CHANGE THE WAY YOU FEEL
Your emotional mind is an eternal
skeptic and must be shown the truth many times before it will believe.
That is why affirmations are so valuable. You can repeat them
until you overwhelm the inner skeptic and change the way you feel.
The inner emotional skeptic
isnít interested in logic; itís more susceptible to the power of
repetition than it is to the power of reason. If you
repeat anything enough times, the inner skeptic slowly has a
change of heart, and it changes the way you feel.
Affirmations arenít aimed at
your rational mind. Instead, they take aim on your
emotional mind to push it in a positive direction. They
transform your life by putting good things into your heart.
Repeating affirmations increases their power, and the more times
you repeat them, the sooner you feel better.
Affirmations are especially
effective in the hearts of people who have a personal
relationship with God based on love. Godís love is the
most powerful force in the universe, and when his love floods
your heart and mind, it heals your damaged emotions.
Affirmations help you focus on Godís love and practice his
If you want to push your heart in a positive direction,
The Mega Affirmation is a good place to get started.
The Mega Affirmation
When I jump into God's ocean of love,
my life is never the same. I am born spiritually and become a new
person. Old things pass away and all things become new. I
look at the world through new eyes and listen with new ears. I
think new thoughts, take new actions, and have a new life.
God's love changes the way I think and feel. His love washes the
toxic waste out of my mind and gives me a clean mind and a pure heart.
My old way of thinking and feeling is gone. My mistakes and
failures are cast into God's ocean of love. For the first
time in my life, I dare to call God my Father and live as one of his
children. God's love heals my damaged emotions, and my negative
feelings and guilt are washed away in a tidal wave of love.
Each day I jump into God's ocean of love and have a life transforming
experience. Dabbling in it will never do. This isn't
something that I do just once and the positive effects last for a
lifetime. I do it every day for the rest of my life. For as
long as I live, I will max out on God's love.
Here are five bonus affirmations that you can use to put good things
into your mind.
God loves me and accepts me the way I
am, but He loves me too much to let me stay that way. God's love
carries away my burden of guilt. His love not only wipes the slate
clean, it throws the slate away.
There is nothing I can do to earn God's love or make Him love me more.
He already loves me from the top of my head to the tip of my toes, and
it doesn't get any better than that. There is no limit to how good
my life can become when I open my heart and mind to the power of His
I need to change my mind about many things. When I look at my
failures, I need to change my mind. When I look at my limitations,
I need to change my mind. When I look at the past, I need to
change my mind. When I look at the present I need to change my
mind. When I look at the future, I need to change my mind. I
can change anything I want in my life by simply changing my mind.
Change happens when I think differently than I have always thought and
act differently that I have always acted. I think and act my new
life into existence.
God gave me a heart and mind, and He expects me to fill them with good
things. When my mind is full of thoughts consistent with His love,
my mind is exactly the way God means for it to be. When my heart
is full of emotions consistent with His love, my emotions are healthy,
and my heart is exactly the way God means for it to be.
Repeat these words until your mind repeats them back to you and discover
the miraculous power of positive repetition.
CHRISTIAN POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY KEEPS YOU CENTERED
The most important fact in the universe is that God loves and
accepts you the way you are. His love makes you into a new person
with a new way of thinking and feeling. His love forms the center
of your life around which everything else is organized. It is the
central point around which all other things revolve. It is your
point of perspective that brings all things into focus. It is your
point of reference by which you measure everything that happens.
It is your source of power. It points you in the right direction
and gives you the power to make the trip. It is the first thought
that enters your heart and mind in the morning and the last thought you
think before you go to sleep at night. It is the rock that forms
the foundation for your life. It is your lighthouse in a storm.
It is always there to support and sustain you no matter what happens.
It keeps you centered because it is your center.
CHRISTIAN POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY SHOWS YOU

1. You dare to call God your Father.
2. You have a
personal relationship with God based on love.
You fall in love with God.
3. You send
your love back to God through loving other people.
You fall in love with other people.

5. You give
up your need to be right and switch the focus of
your life to love.
6. You move

act as if that dream is possible and work each day
to make it happen.
7. You use
prayer to do a reality check and align yourself with
God's plan for your life. You get in agreement
with God. You trust God's plan because it's
good for you and perfect for the type of person you

Unstoppable, Consistently Positive, Endlessly
Persistent, Doer of Dreams.
10. You spend the rest of your
life focusing on God's love and putting good things

POSITIVE THINKING IS THE NATURAL SOFTWARE FOR YOUR
Positive thinking works because it is
the natural software for your mind. God designed a positive software
package that would permit your mind to function at full capacity and
maximum efficiency. He created your mind to work best with a positive
Negative thinking doesn't work well, because your mind was not designed
to function with a negative operating system. Although your mind is an
awesome biocomputer, it will not function well using the wrong
software. Severely depressed people run a negative operating system
most of the time, and they illustrate how bad things can get when
negative thinking takes control of your thoughts.
Positive thinking truly is the right type of thinking. Positive
thinking is more than a good idea. It's the way your mind was designed
to work. God designed your mind to function best when itís under the
influence of positive beliefs.
Positive thinking will not make your life perfect. It will not make all
your problems disappear or prevent serious illness and accidents.
Nevertheless, positive thinking will make your life immeasurably
better. No amount of positive thinking will take something bad and turn
it into something good; however, positive thinking will turn it into
something better. No matter how negative your life is, thinking
positive makes it better.
Positive thoughts are like a giant magnet that attracts good things. The
more positive thoughts you put into your mind, the stronger the positive
magnet becomes, and the more your life improves. Positive thoughts
donít just pop into your mind. You put them there on purpose, one
thought at a time. When you fill your mind with positive thoughts, itís
not long before a positive operating system is up and running in your
Positive thinking confuses many people. They don't understand why
it's so hard to develop a positive mind. They sincerely want to become a
positive person, but they don't have a clue as to how they can make it
happen. No matter how hard they try to think positive thoughts,
they end up with negative ones instead.
They have a fundamental misunderstanding about how you create a positive
mind. They try to think positive thoughts by trying to think
positive thoughts - a strategy that does not work. The reason is
simple. A negative mind does not have positive thoughts inside,
and whatever you have inside your mind is what is going to come out.
No matter how hard you try to be positive, and no matter how much you
want to positive positive, if you have a negative mind, you will have
Positive thinking is the result of putting positive things into your
mind. It's a sign that you have filled your mind with positive
Trying to think positive thoughts without first putting positive things
into your mind is a waste of time. It won't work and cannot work.
It's impossible to get positive thoughts out of a negative mind.
If there aren't any positive thoughts in your mind, then there is
nothing positive that can come out.
Positive thinking is the summation of all the positive things that you
have put into your mind. Negative thinking is a summation of all
the toxic waste that you have allowed into your mind.
Your mind is like a giant adding machine that sums up
what you have put into your mind. When you fill your mind with positive
things, the positive thoughts will control and dominate your mind,
because that is what you have inside. If you are having a problem
with negative thoughts, it because that is what is inside your mind.
If you want to have different thoughts, you must put different things
There is a difference between thinking positive and putting positive
things into your mind. You can't think positive unless you already
have positive things in your mind. Filling your mind with positive
things must come first. That's why it's imperative that you
control what gets into your mind.
If you fill your mind with toxic
waste, you will end up with a negative mind. It's not a mystery.
If you fill a bucket with water, when you empty the bucket,
water is what comes out. If you fill your mental bucket with
positive things, then when you empty your mental bucket, positive
thoughts flow out.
Trying to think positive thoughts without having a
mind full of positive things will not work. It's impossible.
It's like trying to sing a song that has no words. If you want to
think positive, first you must put positive things into your mind.
The Bible says, ďWhatever is true,
whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is
lovely, whatever is admirable, whatever is excellent, or worthy of
praise, think on these things.Ē This scripture is the formula for a

What I listen to in the media changes who I am. What I watch on
television goes into my mind and stays there forever; it makes me into a
I will not walk the path of self-destruction by loading my mind with
toxic waste. Each time I dwell on negative thoughts, I plant the seeds
of my own destruction, because those thoughts will haunt me for the rest
of my life.
God gave me a mind, and He expects me to fill it with good things. I
focus my mind on everything that is true, noble, right, pure, lovely,
admirable, excellent, and worthy of praise, because I want to have those
kinds of things in my life. I want to experience those types of
thoughts while I work during the day and when I lay down to sleep at
night. I want those kinds of thoughts to bubble up in my mind when I
face the major challenges of life.
What you put into your mind is supremely important. You must never
allow mental toxic waste to gain entrance to your mind. The gold
standard for what you allow into your mind is clear. Every thought
you allow inside must be consistent with and compatible with God's love.
When your mind is full of thoughts consistent with God's love, your mind
is exactly the way God means for it to be. Unloving thoughts have no
place in a positive mind.
What you put into your mind determines the emotions that you experience
on a daily basis. Mental toxic waste turns your heart into an
emotional wasteland. Toxic thoughts create toxic emotions.
Distorted thoughts created twisted emotions. Negative thoughts
creative destructive negative emotions.
When your heart is full of emotions consistent with God's love, your
emotions are healthy, and they are exactly the way God means for them to
be. The only way to have healthy emotions is to fill you mind with
thoughts that are positive and that are consistent with God's love.
If you want to move in a new direction, you need to
put new thoughts into your mind. The wheel of change always turns in
the direction of what you put into your mind. That's why your thoughts
are so important; they determine the course of your life.
What you put into your mind is literally your steering wheel. Every
time you put in a new thought, you steer in a new direction.
Lots of folks are discouraged by all their problems. Mountains of
adversity surround them on all sides. Sometimes they feel like there is
no hope, and as long as they think only about all their problems, they
are right. But the instant they put new and positive thoughts into
their mind, the wheel of change turns their life in a completely
different direction, and they leave their problems behind.
How do you put new thoughts into your mind?
It's easier than you might think.
First, you can look at positive pictures that have a message of hope.
Pictures go directly into your mind and remain there for the rest of
your life. Each picture gives your mind a push in a positive
direction. That's why
PositiveGraphics exists. There are one-hundred and
sixty-five positive graphics ready to turn your life in a new direction.
If you want even more positive pictures, visit
Positive Thinking Wallpaper.
Second, you can repeat positive self-talk and positive affirmations.
Nothing can stop the self-talk
that flows endlessly through your mind. Your inner voice is like
that of a sports commentator who wonít stop talking and refuses to
go away. He relentlessly comments on how you play the game of
life until the day you die.
Any attempt to squelch the inner
voice is doomed to failure. Itís a gift that never stops giving.
This voice from the past is in replay mode during all your waking
hours. Escape from it is impossible, and there are no mental
earplugs that can silence it. Drugs and alcohol may temporarily
muffle and distort the sound, but when the chemicals wear off, the
voice is still there. Although you canít stop the inner voice,
you can always influence it, and often can control what it has to
You must know what to say when
your mind talks to you, and know what to say when you talk to your
You have a lot of things to discuss
with your mind, and everything you say needs to be positive. If you
donít like what you hear when your mind talks to you, you have the power
to change the message. The problem isnít the voice; itís what the voice
has to say.
The Supreme Law of Change
states, "You can change who you are by changing what you put into
your mind". This law is incredibly powerful and makes your life
better or worse depending upon what you put into your mind. The Supreme
Law of Change is irrevocable and unavoidable. You canít walk around it
or escape from it. Itís ever present and controls the outcome of your
life. This law hides in plain sight and is so obvious hardly anyone
pays attention to it.
Everyone has the opportunity to make
their life better by putting good things into their mind. Instead,
people ruin their lives by polluting their minds with toxic waste.
Their minds become full of anxiety and stress as they let Hollywood and
the media dump the garbage in. Their dreams become nightmares because
of what they put into their mind.
If you want to have a positive mind,
you absolutely must control what goes into it and make sure it is
positive. There is no other way.
Your mission, if you choose to accept
it, is clear. You must do two things.
First, you must not allow toxic waste
and garbage to enter your mind. This is a monumental task, because
there is so much of it out there coming at you from so many different
Second, you must fill your mind with
You are engaged in mortal mental
combat, and who you are is at stake. This isnít a game, and if you
lose, who you are dies. The world will take you, compress you into its
mold, give you permanent membership in the Life Long Disoriented, and
who you are today will become a distant memory.
You are not helpless, and your life is not hopeless. Your life
instantly improves the moment you start putting good things into
your mind. The simple act of reading these positive words turns
the wheel of change in a positive direction, and every paragraph
you read makes you into a more positive person.
The battle to control your thoughts is fought on the battlefield
of focus. In order to control your thoughts, you will have to
learn how to persistently and consistently control the focus of
You don't need to spend years searching for empowering ideas that make
it possible to live your dreams. It's already right here in a self-talk
The Law of Positive Self-Talk states: "You can change the way
you think and feel by changing what you say when you talk to your mind."
Strength Positive Thinking shows you how to use
positive self-talk to create a new life. When you repeat positive
self-talk, you become a different person. You literally change who you
are by changing what you say when you talk to your mind.
If you don't like what
you hear when your mind talks to you, you can use positive self-talk to
change the message and push your inner voice in a positive direction.
You can make your life as positive as you want.
What you say to your mind is your roadmap to the future. Each word
takes you to a specific destination. Make sure your self-talk is
positive so it takes you where you want to go.
Strength Positive Thinking is engineered so that
you can easily put it into your mind. Each positive self-talk is short,
to the point, and easily memorized so it can be indelibly imprinted in
your memory banks and quickly have maximum impact.
Strength Positive Thinking has another benefit not
found in other books. It contains more than 100 Power Graphics that
speak the language of the mind. The Power Graphics go directly into
your photographic memory. Positive self-talk puts good things in your
mind one way, and Power Graphics do it in another. Together they offer
a double dose of positive thinking that pushes your inner voice in a
If you want to become a positive person, the self-talk and Power
Graphics found in
Strength Positive Thinking can
make it happen. Give yourself a double dose of positive thinking today.
If you really want to
be positive, nobody can stop you.
Matthew 16:23 Jesus said, ďYou are a stumbling block to me. You think
as men think, not as God thinks.
Jesus said that when we think like men, we stumble. How we think and
what we think is important. Wrong thinking trips us up. We need a new
way of thinking; we need to think as God thinks.
When you get in agreement with God, then you are thinking the way that
God thinks. You need to understand how God thinks so that you can get in
agreement with him.
God is the God of the possible. Impossible is not found in his
vocabulary, and impossibility doesnít exist in his universe. Everything
is possible when you think the way God thinks.
God is the source of all good things. All that you are or have
comes directly or indirectly from him. There are no shortages in Godís
kingdom of love. Everything that you need to live an abundant life is
already present and available for those who think as God thinks.
How does God think?
God thinks abundance. Jesus said that he had come so that you might
have life and have it more abundantly. God created the world and
everything in it. What you need is no big deal to God. Supplying your
needs wonít break his back or bankrupt his kingdom. God enjoys giving
you good things. His plan is to fill your cup with blessings until it
God thinks possibility. All things are possible when you think the
way God thinks. God is the God of possibility, and there is no limit to
how good your life can become when you think the way God thinks.
God thinks positive. The most positive force in the universe is
Godís love. It changes the way you think and feel making you into a
God thinks positive expectations. When you get into agreement with
God, your expectations change. Impossible becomes possible, and
scarcity becomes abundance. God has a powerful positive plan for your
life. God expects good things to happen in your life when you think the
way that He thinks.
God thinks forgiveness. God forgives you for the wrong things that
you have done. He not only wipes the slate clean, He also throws the
God thinks freedom for the captives. Jesus came to set the
prisoners free. The chains of lack and limitation fall off when you
think the way God thinks.
God thinks release from oppression. Jesus came to liberate you from
all forms of oppression. Economic, spiritual, chemical, and
psychological dependencies disappear when you think the way God thinks.
God thinks recovery of what has been lost. The blind receive their
sight. What the world destroys and takes away, God recovers and
God thinks favor. He bestows his blessings on all who get in
agreement with him. He opens the windows of heaven, and blessings fall
God thinks good news. God has no dark side. He is on our side, and
is in it with us for the long haul. All of Godís thoughts are good
news. When you become silent and listen for Godís voice, you hear his
positive message of love.
can trust God. If you do your part, God will do his. When you get in
agreement with him, when you think the way that He thinks, then God
starts working miracles in your life.
already knows what you need even before you ask. God wants to give you
good things even more than you want to receive them. But first you must
Jesus said, ďAsk and you will receive.Ē Asking simply recognizes that
God is the source of all good things, and that He can be trusted to
provide. Outsourcing doesnít exist in Godís kingdom of love. All of
us need to be reminded that God is our source. God will give you what
you need unless you block him. There are no shortages in Godís kingdom.
If you aren't getting what you need, it's because of lack of
faith, lack of trust, and lack of positive expectations. God is a God
of abundance, and when you get in agreement with him, when you trust him
to supply your needs, when you have positive expectations, then the
windows of heaven open, and blessings fall all around.

it's like to sail on the ocean of your dreams by watching Dr. Dave's DVD
- The Red Sea Chronicles. Put some positive adventure into your mind
and push your life in a positive direction.
Captain Dave and his
family spent eleven years sailing around the world on their Privilege 39
catamaran, Exit Only. During the trip, the crew of Exit Only shot 200
hours of video with professional cameras to show people what it's like
to sail on a small boat around the world.
The Red Sea Chronicles is a one hour and twenty-two minute feature
film showing their adventures as Exit Only sails through Pirate
Alley in the Gulf of Aden and up the Red Sea. The professional footage
documents their experiences in Oman, Yemen, Eritrea, Sudan, Egypt, and
the Suez Canal. It chronicles the rigors of traveling in a remote
section of the world rarely visited by cruisers. Exit Only dodges
Yemeni pirates, fights a gale and sand storms in the Bab al Mandeb at
the southern entrance to the Red Sea. The crew explores deserted
islands on the western shores of the Red Sea, and learns to check the
cruising guides for land mines before venturing ashore.
The Red Sea Chronicles also has outstanding Special Features that
include an Instructional Video on Storm Management that tells
sailors how to deal with storms at sea.
The Red Sea Chronicles is a first class adventure that stokes the
sailing dreams of both experienced and wannabe sailors alike. Order
your copy of the Red Sea Chronicles and experience the adventures of
Exit Only as they sail around the world and up the Red Sea.
