ZERO NEGATIVE THINKING
Negativity is a powerful tool for
destroying a life. Every time you say the word no, your life gets
smaller. Your opportunities recede further into the distance.
You must extinguish negativity when it first appears. Sniff it
out when it is small, and snuff it out while it is weak.
POWER OF POSITIVE EXPECTATIONS
You don't get what you want in life. You get what you expect.
It doesn't matter what other people think. It's your
expectations that count. As you believe, so shall it be done unto you.
If you want to live
your dreams, positive expectations must rule your world.
HOW TO CONTROL YOUR EMOTIONS
Although your thoughts
control your emotions, it's your emotions that rule your world.
You can't change
your emotions directly, but you change them indirectly by changing the
way you think. The wheel of emotion always turns in the direction of
what you put into your mind.
HOW POSITIVE THINKING WORKS
works because it is the natural software for your mind. Positive
thinking truly is the right type of thinking. It's more than a good
idea. It's the way your mind was designed to work.God designed your
mind to function best when it's under the influence of positive
beliefs, and when a positive operating system controls your mind

When you look at a newborn baby, you don't see any signs of
depression or anxiety. God gave that baby a clean mind and a
pure heart, and it takes years of thinking toxic distorted
thoughts to arrive at the place where anxiety and depression
compose a significant portion of its thought life. It requires
years of training to become a miserable unhappy human being.
When you have been thinking
negative and limiting thoughts for twenty years, you should
expect to experience some anxiety and depression.
On the other
hand, when you start thinking positive thoughts, the chemistry
of your brain shifts in a positive direction, and you start

by the type of thoughts you think during the first twenty years
and subsequent years of your life.

stop polluting your mind with toxic waste and start filling it
with good things.

with pills isn't enough. You need to change what you are
putting into your mind. You need to change what you say when
you talk to your mind.

accept responsibility for your mood and state of mind.
Your life will not miraculously improve on its own.
Talk to your
physician to find out if you need medication. But don't
rely only on medication. Go the whole distance and take
control of what you put into your mind.

accident. It's something you do on purpose. Start living with
intention and make your life better by putting good things into
your mind. Spend time each day reviewing power graphics and
repeating positive self-talk.

positive as you want. All you need to do is focus on positive
things, talk about positive things, look at positive things, and
listen to positive things. Turn on your good finder and
rediscover all the good things in your life.

about God as it is about you. The self-talk contained in this book is
designed to change your life. You learn to think the way that God thinks

It's time to get in agreement with God about who you are and what you can
do with your life. It's time to speak your new life into existence. Jesus
said, "As you believe, so shall it be done unto you." Jesus was talking
about positive 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 still get what you expect. If you want positive self-talk to work in

Positive Self-Talk Red Book - A persistently positive focus creates a
consistently positive mind. The same is true of your self-talk. It must be
persistent, positive, and specific to have maximum impact. Lack of
persistentce has laid more dreams to rest in the cemetery of failure than
any other cause. There is zero chance that you will succeed on your first
attempt. If your dreams are great, You will fail again and again on your
way to the top. Before you can be great, you have to be good. Before you
can be good, you have to be bad. Before you can be bad, you have to try.
Millions of people stop at try. Thousands get stuck at bad. Hundreds quit
at good. A few go all the way to great. If you don't have persistence, you
willl never make the trip from try to bad to good to great. Positive
Self-Talk Red Book helps you develop a persistently positive focus so that
you can develop a consistently positive mind. More than one-hundred Power
Graphics contain powerful thoughts that you need to have in your mind.
Positive Self-Talk Red Book is now available at

Positive Self-Talk Purple Book - Living small serves no great purpose.
Living as if you are a great person is a powerful idea that changes lives,
and those who take it seriously change their world. Living as if you are
great means you live as if your dreams are possible and work each day to
make them happen. You act as if you cannot fail. In order to live as if
you are great, you have to think the way great people think, talk the way
great people talk, and act the way great people act. Great people think,
talk, and act their dreams into existence. If you ever become great, it
will be because you think great thoughts, repeat great self-talk, have
great expectations, and act as if you cannot fail. Some people wrongly
believe that change is impossible. Leopards don't change their spots, and
zebra stripes are forever. But people are different. People change their
stars. They change their stripes, and their spots disappear in an instant
of time. That instant happens the moment they develop positive
expectations and believe they have the power to change. Positive self-talk
and positive expectations can take you anywhere you want to go. Positive
Self-Talk Purple Book is now available in ebook format at
Barnes and Noble.
Everything Is Possible - Everything in your life fits into
two columns. One column is labeled possible and the other is labeled
impossible. Your job is to think as God thinks and to move
everything over to the possible column. With God, all things are
possible. Impossible doesn't exist in God's universe, and it
shouldn't exist in yours. Impossible is not in God's vocabulary, and
it shouldn't be in yours. It's time to leave the Land of
Impossibility, the Land of Addictions, and the Land of Limitations behind
and to come to the promised land where all things are possible. It's
time to get in agreement with God. It's time to think as God thinks.
Thinking Scriptures - The Bible reveals the mind and heart
of God. It tells us how God thinks and feels about you and me.
God did not keep his thoughts to himself. It was his master plan
that we should think the thoughts of God - that we should think as God
thinks. Although it might seem presumptuous to believe that humans
can actually think the thoughts of God, we must remember that God created
us in his image, and He gave us the ability to think and feel. The
Creator of the universe actually did have a plan for our hearts and minds.
He planned to fill our hearts and minds with his love so that we can think
the thoughts of God.
Christian Scriptures - When God loves, He loves in a big way.
He creates people in his own image and loves them with an everlasting love
that has no preconditions. We sink or swim in his ocean of love.
Scriptures from the Bible tell us how God connects with people like you
and me. Scriptures help you understand who you are and what you can
do with God's help. They teach you to trust God in every area.
You learn to do your part so that God can do his part and accomplish
things that you could never do by yourself. You suspend your
disbelief and get out of the way so that the river of faith can sweep away
Attitude Of Praise
- Looking at the world through eyes of praise. Your attitude
is your way of looking at things, and it's a choice. Attitude is a
mind set. It's the way you choose to look at yourself and the world.
Jesus said, "Set your mind on God's kingdom and his way of doing things
before everything else, and all the rest will come to you as well.
Jesus made it clear that you attitude is important, and that it is a
choice. He told people to set their mind on the right things.
When they had the right attitude, God would see to it that things work
out. An attitude of praise connects you with God and reminds you of
God's work in your life.
Praise - An affirmation is a positive declaration of something you
know to be true. An affirmation of praise is a positive declaration
that recognizes the power and presence of God working in your life at
specific times and places in concrete ways. They remind you of God's work
in the past, they focus on God's work in the present, and they affirm
God's power in the future. Praise is part of your conversation with God.
It's spiritual glue that strengthens your connection with God. The more
you praise, the more you affirm God's presence and power. The more
you praise, the more faith wells up in your heart and mind.
Christian Psychology is simply thinking the way God thinks.
It's the way God intends for you to think and feel. It's getting in
agreement with God. 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 cornerstone 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
AFFIRMATIONS FOR POSITIVE CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY
I have opened my heart and mind to the power of God's love, and I dare
to call God my Father. I love God with
all my mind, all my heart, and all my strength. There is no
ambivalence in my relationship with God.
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
tings 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.
I live in a world created and sustained
by love. The Creator of the universe surrounds me and fills my heart
with love. The presence and power of God in my life is love.
Godís love is unconditional; there is nothing I can do or must do to
earn it. Itís an eternal fact that sustains the world. It forms the
foundation for my self-esteem, and his love makes me worthy. When my
heart is full of Godís love, itís full of his presence and power. Itís
impossible to have unconditional love in my heart without God putting it
there. Unconditional love isnít in my chromosomes. Only God can
breathe it into my life.
God is the God of the
possible. Impossible is not found in his vocabulary, and
impossibility doesn't exist in his universe. Everything is
possible when I think the way that God thinks.
Romans 8:37-39 states: ďIn all these things we are more than conquerors
through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor
life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor
any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation
will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our
Lord.Ē This scripture states the facts of love in an unequivocal way.
There is nothing in the entire universe that can separate me from Godís
love. God is my Father, and his love floods my heart and mind and makes
me whole. There is no limit to how good my life can become when my
heart is full of Godís love.
God's plan for my life is
simple. He will take all my choices, mistakes, and failures, and
turn them into something good. My mistakes and failures are the
launching pad for God's master plan.
God loves me and accepts me the way I
am, but He loves me too much to let me stay that way. That is my
ultimate reason for hope. God is on my side. He wants to fill my heart
with his love, banish my limitations, and wash away the plague of
negative thoughts from my mind. Godís love carries away my burden of
guilt. His love not only wipes the slate clean, it also throws the
slate away. God has a plan for my life that is better than anything I
can imagine. There is no limit to how good my life can become when I
max out on the power of his love.
must see myself through Godís eyes and learn the facts of love.
Godís love never falters or fails. It will never stop pursuing me until
the day I die. No matter what I do, I cannot escape it. I can ignore
it or reject it, but it will not go away. Godís love surrounds and
envelops me. It continually reminds me that I can be one of his
children. I will either sink or swim in his ocean of love.
I need to think the way
that God thinks. I need to get in agreement with God. I need
to think abundance. I need to think possibility. I need to
think forgiveness for myself and others. I need to think freedom
from my past. I need to think release from my addictions. I
need to think recovery from my sicknesses. I need to think about
God's favor and love. I need to think the way God thinks.
My mistakes and failures
are no surprise to God. They are the launching pad for God's
master plan. God takes all of my mistakes and failures and turns
them into something good.
