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 be positive, if you have a negative mind, you will have negative thoughts.
Positive thinking is the result of putting positive things into your mind. It's a sign that you have filled your mind with positive things.
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 control and dominate your mind, because that is what you have inside.
If you have a problem with negative thoughts, it's because that is what is inside your mind.
If you want to have different thoughts, you must put different things inside.
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 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.
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 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. Hundreds of positive graphics turn your life in a new direction.
You can change who you are by changing what you say when you talk to your mind, so use positive affirmations to become a new person. Visit Postive Christian Affirmations and Powerful Positive Affirmations to fill your mind with positive things.
Third, you can listen to positive recordings.
That's really easy to do using Positive Thinking Podcasts. I have nearly two-hundred positive podcasts on my websites. Go to PositiveThinkingRadio or PositiveChristianRadio and fill your mind with positive thoughts that can turn your life around and make you into a new person. Listen to messages of hope and inspiration to give your mind a push in a positive direction.
If you do these three things, the wheel of change will take you in a new and positive direction.
Nothing can stop the self-talk that flows endlessly through your mind. Your inner voice is like that of a sports commentator who won’t 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. It’s 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 can’t stop the inner voice, you can always influence it, and often can control what it has to say.
You must know what to say when your mind talks to you, and know what to say when you talk to your mind.
You have a lot of things to discuss with your mind, and everything you say needs to be positive.
If you don’t like what you hear when your mind talks to you, you have the power to change the message.
The problem isn’t the voice; it’s 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 inside.
The Supreme Law of Change is irrevocable and unavoidable. You can’t walk around it or escape from it. It’s 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 inside.
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 directions.
Second, you must fill your mind with positive things.
You are engaged in mortal mental combat, and who you are is at stake. This isn’t 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.
How do you change the way you think?
Three laws show you how to make it happen.
Those laws are the Law of Positive Self-Talk, the Law of Positive Direction, and the Law of Positive Focus.
The Law of Positive Self-Talk states, "You change the way you think and feel by changing what you say when you talk to your mind."
If you want to change the way you think, you are going to have to change your inner dialogue. You are going to have to talk to your mind in a different manner
The Law of Positive Direction states, "The wheel of change always turns in the direction of what you put into your mind." You actually push your mind in a positive direction by putting positive and healthy thoughts into your mind. If you put enough positive thoughts into your mind, you can actually create a positive brain.
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 Law of Positive Focus states, "A persistently positive focus creates a consistently positive mind."
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 your mind.
