Positive thinking is the natural software for your mind. It's more than a good idea. It's how God designed your mind to work.
Positive thinking works because it's 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 operating system.
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.
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 it’s 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 don’t just pop into your mind. You put them there on purpose, one thought at a time. When you fill your mind with positive thoughts, it’s not long before a positive operating system is up and running.
Positive Thinking is the summation of all the positive things that you have put into your mind.
Negative thinking is the 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 inside.
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 without first putting positive things into your mind is a waste of time. It will not work.
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 of 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.
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.

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.
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.
Thoughts are the seeds of your life. Every destination starts as a thought. Your dreams don't happen by themselves. You think and act them into existence.
You can go anywhere you want as long as you are willing to think the thoughts that take you there.
You have to be careful about the thoughts you think, because they determine the direction of your life.
You create a positive mind by focusing on positive things. A persistently positive focus creates a consistently positive mind.
In order to control your thoughts, you will have to learn how to persistently and consistently control the focus of your mind.
The war for a positive mind is fought on the battlefield of focus. When you control your focus, you control your thoughts and emotions. A positive focus pushes your heart and mind in a positive direction.
A positive focus gives you powerful leverage over your mind. When you focus on a thought, it forces your mind to look in the direction of that thought. When you focus on it for a minute, you push your mind in that direction for a minute. When you consistently focus on it for weeks and months, your life moves in that direction. Your positive focus creates a positive life.
You can think only one thought at a time. When you focus on a thought, you displace all others from your mind. A positive focus enables you to displace unwanted negative thoughts with positive ones. You displace limiting thoughts with empowering ones.
A positive focus gives you the leverage you need to push your mind in a positive direction.
You have a lot of things to discuss with your mind, and everything you say needs to be positive.
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 say to your mind, and everything you say needs to be positive.
If you don't like the things you hear when your mind talks to you, you have the power to change the message.
If you want to change the message, you must repeat positive thoughts until your mind repeats them back to you.
Mental rewind beats you into submission with repetitive thoughts. The mind replays the same thoughts over and over, and the more irritating and troublesome the thoughts, the more the mind goes into rewind and plays them again and again. Rewind acts like an out of control masochistic machine intent on driving you crazy.
Mental rewind is an inescapable fact of life. No matter what you do, mental rewind and instant replay never go away. You need to develop strategies to turn rewind into something good. You need to use rewind to make your life better.
Rewind would be great if it replayed positive thoughts and reinforced your dreams. Unfortunately, too much of the time, mental rewind is an exercise in self-destruction. Prickly negative thoughts relentlessly inflict their misery upon your heart and mind. But it doesn't have to be that way. There are lots of things you can do to make rewind into an asset that replays positive thoughts on demand.
If you don't like what you hear when you go into rewind, you have the power to change the message.
Here is a list of things you can do to turn rewind and instant replay into your new best friend.

Positive Praise helps you remember how God worked in your life in the past. It connects you with God in the present, and it affirms God's power and presence in the future.

You can change who you are by changing what you put into your mind.
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 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 into their mind.
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, “Whatever 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.”
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.
When you change the things you look at, the way you look at things changes.
You either sink or swim in an ocean of images and sounds that assault your mind every minute of the day. Fifty inch wide screen televisions with surround sound push your mind in a hundred different directions. Unfortunately, too much of the media is nothing more than mental toxic waste, and when you allow it into your mind, it remains there forever. It's easy to get in, but impossible to remove.
If your mind had a button you could press, and instantly you could flush the toxic waste out of your mind, it would not matter that much what got into your mind. But there aren't any flush levers in your mind. Whatever gets inside stays forever. Periodically, the toxic waste floats to the surface and comes out for all the world to see, and sometimes it comes out at the worst of times.
The fact that you can't get the toxic waste out is bad enough, but what's even worse is the fact that the toxic waste changes who you are and makes you into a different person.
You need to be extremely careful about what you allow into your mind, because it changes who you are. If you let the media dump the garbage in, it won't be long until your mind becomes a wasteland full of toxic thoughts that make you sick.
Newborn children are as clean and pure on the inside as fresh fallen snow. But it doesn't take long for the world to pollute them with mental toxic waste. By the time they are eighteen years old, their sullied minds qualify as a superfund toxic waste cleanup site. Unfortunately, it's a thousand times easier to clean up a superfund site, than it is to clean up the pollution and negative programming lurking inside a human mind. And when that mind lives in a drug induced fog, cleaning out the toxic waste is nearly impossible.
Since mental clean up is so difficult, the most sensible thing to do is to never allow toxic negative thoughts into your mind.
Most of us already have too much mental pollution, and we long to return to the childlike state of a clean mind and a pure heart. There is good news for those of us who want to become clean again. Although we may not be able to remove all the toxic waste, we have the power to change the way we think and feel. We have leverage that allows us to look at ourselves and the world through eyes of possibility and love.
There are lots of things we can do to create positive change in our hearts and minds. A good place to start is to change the things that you look at. When you change the things you look at, the way you look at things changes. When you look at positive things, you start to look at things in a positive manner.
It really does matter what you look at because it shapes your perceptions of the world.
When you change the things you talk about, the way you talk about things changes.
What you talk about matters a great deal because it changes who you are. When you change the things you talk about, the way you talk about things changes.
When your talk is positive, good things start to happen and the way you talk about your life changes as well. When your talk is negative, misery and limitations become your unwanted guests. Jesus taught that you are to talk to your problems and not about them.
When you talk about your problems with everyone, you magnify those challenges until they become a stronghold in your mind. They occupy the high ground and rooting them out is difficult. Every time you talk about your problems, you increase their power. When you focus on them, they become stronger, and you become weaker.
Jesus said that if you have faith the size of a grain of mustard seed, you can tell a mountain to move into the sea, and it will happen.
Jesus wants you to be a mountain mover, and he wants you to talk to your problems rather than talk about them.
Jesus used his mountain story to make an important point. You have to talk to the mountains in your life before they will move. All of your problems - your mountains - are waiting to hear from you, and if you start speaking works of faith, your mountains will move.
No matter what your problem, you must talk to it.
If you are depressed, you must talk to your depression and start pushing back. Tell your depression that God's love is the most positive and most powerful force in the universe, and His love is filling your heart and mind. Tell your depression that you are made in the image of God, and that God loves and accepts you the way you are. Tell your depression that God's love changes the way you think and feel. You are a new person with a new life.
If your life is full of problems, don't make matters worse by commiserating over your problems with everyone you meet. Instead, start talking to your mountains and cast them into the sea.
Jesus once asked a sick man if he wanted to be healed. This was not an academic question. It addressed the heart and soul of what it takes to get well. The first step in getting well is wanting to get better and expecting to get better.
When you want to get better, and you expect to get better, you will no longer talk about your problems. You will start talking to your problems and mountains will start moving in your life.
When you change the things you think about, the way you think about things changes.
The Positive Thinking Network has hundreds of websites that make it easy for you to change the things you think about.
When you visit these websites and change the things you think about, it won't be long before the way you think about things changes as well.
Changing the things you think about is easy. You can do it with the click of a mouse.
You don't get what you want. You get what you expect. As you believe, so shall it be done unto you.
Jesus created a world ruled by 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 will get what you expect.
Jesus understood the laws of the moral universe because he created those laws.
He knew how things work. When he 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.
When your mind is full of thoughts consistent with God's love, your mind is exactly the way God means for it to be.
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. 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 God's love, your emotions are healthy, and they are exactly the way God means for them to be.
The normal state of affairs for the human heart and mind is for thoughts to be positive and for emotions to be 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.
You are never more like God than when you are loving other people.
The Bible says you are made in the image of God. You bear God's likeness.
The image of God has nothing to do with our physical bodies. God is a Spirit, and when we dare to call God our Father, we are born spiritually. We become spiritually alive and resemble our Father who is also a Spirit.
Spiritual birth is only the first step we take as we assume the image of God. Once we are alive spiritually, we partake in the nature of God. We become instruments and ambassadors of unconditional love.
Jesus said, "Hereby will men know that you are one of my disciples, because you love one another." The hallmark and proof of spiritual birth is love. God is love and works by love, and by nothing else than love. The power and presence of God in the world is love. Every time you see love, you see God's hand at work in the world. God's arms of love are your arms. God's hands of love are your hands. God heart of love is your heart.
You are never more like God than when you are loving other people. When your heart is full of love, you bear a clear and unmistakable resemblance to God. You are made in the image of God.
