David J. Abbott M.D. is the Positive Thinking Doctor.  Dr. Dave spent his professional career working as an eye surgeon in developing countries.  After twenty-eight years of working overseas, he became an ophthalmologist at Phoenix Indian Medical Center working with more than twenty different Native American tribes from the American south west.

Early in his career, Dr. Dave figured out that positive thinking worked better for most people than negative thinking, but it wasn't clear how or why positive thinking works.  He noticed that people didn't get what they wanted in life.  Instead they got what they expected.  People who had positive expectations seemed to fare better than people who had low or negative expectations.

Dr. Dave also met thousands of people wallowing in depression sinking in a quagmire of negative thoughts, and he wanted to know how and why these people ended up in such a miserable state.

Although he was trained to preserve and restore vision using eye surgery, Dr. Dave wanted to help people restore their inner vision as well.  He wanted to show people how to look at the world through eyes of possibility and love.  That's why he created the Positive Thinking Network with more than two hundred positive websites, and that's why he wrote positive books and created positive podcasts.

FIFTEEN SUPREMELY IMPORTANT LESSONS FROM DR. DAVE THAT EVERYONE NEEDS TO LEARN


 

1.  Live as if you are a great person.

Act as if your dreams are possible and work each day to make them happen.

If you are going to live, you may as well live as if you are a great person.  That means, you live as if your dreams are possible and work each day to make them happen.  You travel far, travel light, and make your life into what you want it to be.

As you face problems each day, ask yourself, "How would I handle this challenge if I was a great person?"  After you answer that question, go ahead and do what a great person would do.  Don't tiptoe through life trying to just get by.  Instead, make your life into something memorable, something great.  You only get one life, and you may as well make it into a great one.  You have little to lose and much to gain, so go ahead and live as if you are great.



2.  Think and act your new life into existence.

Think new thoughts and take new actions that result in a new life.

Your old way of thinking will not create a new life.  Only new thoughts and actions result in a new life.

Your thoughts are the building blocks for adventure.  Anyone who can think has everything they need to make their life into an unforgettable adventure.  You build your future thought by thought.

That means, if you want to have an adventure, you think it into your life.  If you really want to move in the direction of your dreams, then you focus on the thoughts that take you there.

God gave you an excellent mind, and He expects you to use it to make your life into what you want to be.  Think an adventure into your life.
 


3.  Achieve excellence in at least one area of your life.

Select an area of excellence which you develop and give to the world.

Whether you realize it or not, God embedded excellence into the core of your being.  From the top of your head to the tip of your miraculous big toe, you are excellent through and through.  God has a plan for your life custom designed for just you, and that plan has excellence stamped all over it.

If you have been beaten down into mediocrity, and if you feel there's no reason for hope, it's time for you to listen up.  You have the ability to achieve excellence in at least one area of your life, and that's just the beginning.  There is no limit to how good your life can become when you align yourself with God's master plan.
 


4.  Have zero tolerance to negative thinking.

Do not tolerate it in any form or to any degree.  Don't say it, think it, write it, infer it, or agree with it.  It's always wrong and never right.  It always makes your life worse and never makes it better.



5.  Do not accept limitations.

Don't place limits on worthwhile objectives until you do your utmost to make them happen.

Limiting thoughts are a disguised form of negation.  They are a way that you say no to life while pretending that life is saying no to you.  Limitations are plausible self-deceptions.  They are prefabricated excuses for every failure to be what you want to be and do what you want to do.

No one blames you for being held back by all the limitations that you have adopted.  Limitations are a subtle form of negativity that is socially acceptable.   They don't have a bad sound or smell.  It even has the appearance of maturity to not struggle with reality and to accept the limitations that appear to be present in the world.

When you face a challenge, you write a script of limitations and possibilities based upon your beliefs about yourself.  Inside your mind is a personalized collection of limiting beliefs that tell you everything you cannot do.  Your limiting beliefs create confusion, and it's easy to attribute your limitations to your world rather than to yourself.

There is no reason to place limits on any worthwhile object before you try to make it happen.  Limiting beliefs are a choice, and you should choose to not have any.
 


6.  Never quit working on your dreams.

For as long as you are alive, you must work on your dreams.

The day you quit working is the day you start to die.  You will be dead for a long time, and there is no need to hasten the process by dying before your time.  Life is short, and death is long, and you should never quit until you die.

There is only time time when you should quit.  When what you are doing obviously isn't working, it's time to try a new strategy.

Managing failure is tricky.  You may be doing the right thing, but your timing is off.  You may be doing the wrong thing, but your timing is right.  If you are doing the wrong thing, or if your timing is off, you should stop what you are doing and try something new.  Failure is  not a signal to quit.  Failure is a signal to modify your timing or strategy.  Eventually, you will make the proper adjustments, and your dreams will come true.  You must never quit working on your dreams.
 


7.  Control what goes into your mind.

Your mind is not a dumpster for all of the toxic waste of the twenty-first century.

Everything that goes into your mind changes who you are.  The only way to be in control of your destiny is to control what goes into your mind.  If you let your mind become a dumpster for mental toxic waste, you can say good-bye to your dreams.  If you don't control what goes into your mind, you will lose control over your life.  Whatever gets into your mind expands into your life.  You simply must control what goes into your mind if you want to live your dreams.
 


8.  Run your own mind.

Don't let anyone else run it for you.  Nobody tells you how to think or what to do.

Either you run your mind, or someone else will run it for you.  Those are the only two choices available.  If someone else runs your mind, they run you life.  More important, if they run your mind, they ruin your life.

No one is qualified to run your mind.  It is your privilege to run it the way you want.  Your mind is a gift from God, and He expects you to assume control over and run it in a way that permits you to live your dreams. 

If you run your mind, you have the privilege of living your dreams.  If someone else runs it, your life becomes a nightmare.
 


9.  Program your own mind rather than accept the programming from other people.

Install a positive operating system in your mind.

Positive thinking is the right type of thinking.  It's the natural software for your mind and is the most efficient way to run your brain.  God designed your mind so that it would function best when it's under the influence of a positive operating system.  It's the way God means for your mind to work.

You can reach your potential only if you run your mind using a positive operating system.  Peak mental fitness and good mental health can only happen when a positive operating system controls your mind.

10.  Change your life by changing the way you think.

Trying to change your life by changing your image is a waste of time and is doing things backwards.  It will not work.  You change your life by changing the way you think.

At the moment of change there is a shift in your beliefs about who you are and what you can do.

Whatever changes you make always happen in an instant, and they happen first in your mind.  If you are having a hard time bringing about positive change, you need to examine your beliefs.  A key belief is preventing you from change.  If you alter that belief, you arrive at the instant where change is possible.

Do not talk yourself into believing that change is impossible.  Positive change is something that you already know how to do.  The size of the change is irrelevant. Whether changes are large or small, they still happen in an instant, and they happen first in your mind.


11.  Live a purpose oriented life.

You can't go to a destination that you don't have or hit a target that you can't see.  Your statement of purpose tells you where you are going and why you are going there.  It focuses your mind on your target and keeps you from wasting time and energy on unimportant issues that don't matter.

Your statement of purpose is your roadmap.  It keeps you on the right path and helps you regain your bearings if you lose the way.

Your statement of purpose protects you from outcome-oriented thinking.  You keep moving in the direction of your dreams regardless of the outcomes that happen along the way.  Your statement of purpose liberates you from the tyranny of outcome oriented thoughts.  As long as you remain true to your purpose, you know that you will reach your dreams.
 


12.  Change who you are by changing what you put into your mind.

The mind is the door through which you enter the world of positive change.  That's why the Bible says, "Be transformed by the renewing of your mind."  In order to have a new life, you need a new way of thinking.

You can change who you are by changing what you put into your mind.  When you change your mind, you change your life.  This law of change never fails.  Although the wheel of change turns slowly, it always turns in the direction of what you put into your mind.  You must fill your mind with positive thoughts so that your life moves in a positive direction.

Everything you put into your mind is important because it changes who you are.  When you put in good things, your life improves.  When you put in bad things, your life becomes worse.  There are no exceptions to this law.

Positive transformation is not an accident; it's something you do on purpose. You become a positive person by putting positive things into your mind.
 


13.  Live congruently with your heart, mind and will all heading in the same direction.

Ambivalence is the mortal enemy of your dreams.  Unless you are committed to them with all your mind, heart, and strength, you will not be willing to do whatever it takes to make them happen.

The only way to make dreams come true is to live congruently with your intellect, emotions, and will all heading in the same direction.  When all three work together, ambivalence isn't a problem.  When they head in different directions, ambivalence takes control.
 


14.  Respect the laws of the moral universe
.

The moral universe grinds slow, but it grinds sure.

When you are in agreement with the laws of the moral universe, you prosper.  When you violate the laws of the moral universe, your life becomes harder than it needs to be.

The moral universe is relentless, and it takes sides on the choices you make.  It gives you either rewards or consequences.  Rewards are positive and empowering.  Consequences are negative and destructive. 

You have a free will, and have the right to break every law in the moral universe.  Nevertheless, breaking those laws is an exercise in self-destruction.  Every law that you break will eventually break you.  That's 100% guaranteed.  It will happen.

Learn the laws of the moral universe, and use them in a positive manner.  You will prosper, and there will be no limit to how good your life will become.
 


15.  Dare to call God your Father, and build your life on the foundation of his love

Have a personal relationship with God based on love.

Open your heart and mind to the power of His love.  Fill your mind with thoughts that are consistent with God's love.  When your mind is full of thoughts consistent with His 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.
 



Positive thinkers who learn these lessons and live by them have the privilege of living their dreams.  They become unstoppable, consistently positive, endlessly persistent, doers of dreams.

After you master the fifteen supremely important lessons, don't stop there.  You are just getting started.  Explore the links below and get your graduate degree in positive thinking.  There is no limit to how good your life can become when you fill your mind with positive things.


 


If you really want to be positive, nobody can stop you.
 


I don't get what I want.  I get what I expect.
 

As you believe, so shall it be done unto you.



You have not, because you ask not.

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.

And don't forget the two Music Videos: "The Red Sea Blues", and "Captain - Save Our Souls".

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.
