Positive thinking is a mental attitude that admits into the mind thoughts, words and images that are conductive to growth, expansion and success. It is a mental attitude that expects good and favorable results. A positive mind anticipates happiness, joy, health and a successful outcome of every situation and action. Whatever the mind expects, it finds. Not everyone accepts or believes in positive thinking. Some consider the subject as just nonsense, and others scoff at people who believe and accept it. Among the people who accept it, not many know how to use it effectively to get results. Yet, it seems that many are becoming attracted to this subject, as evidenced by the many books, lectures and courses about it. This is a subject that is gaining popularity.

Positive and negative thinking are both contagious. All of us affect, in one way or another, the people we meet. This happens instinctively and on a subconscious level, through thoughts and feelings transference and through body language. People sense our aura and are affected by our thoughts. Is it any wonder that we want to be around positive persons and shun negative ones? People are more disposed to help us if we are positive. They dislike and avoid anyone broadcasting negativity. Negative thoughts, words and attitude bring up negative and unhappy moods and actions. When the mind is negative, poisons are released into the blood, which cause more unhappiness and negativity. This is the way to failure, frustration and disappointment.

The Effects of Positive Thinking On Health:

· Decreased stress · Greater resistance to catching the common cold · A sense of well-being and improved health · Reduced risk of coronary artery disease · Breathing easier if you have chronic obstructive lung disease, such as emphysema · Improved coping ability for women with high-risk pregnancies · Living longer · Better coping skills

Here are some key steps in thinking positive: · Break a given problem down to its most basic components and deal with each separately. · If you deem something as a negative, figure out why: Lack of experience? Past failure? · Figure out what you can do to increase your chance of success. For example, if your concern is lack of experience, could you take a class or ask a colleague to help you learn about a particular topic or procedure? · View each challenge thrown your way as a chance to lengthen your list of successes. · Visualize yourself winning. · Positive self talk.


Positive Thinking is the way you look at your glass: half-empty or half-full. It reflects your outlook on life and whether you're optimistic or pessimistic. In fact, studies show that these personality traits —optimism and pessimism — can affect how well you live and even how long you live.
