Finding and building on your personal power is something you can begin right now through the habit of positive thinking and a positive mindset. Positive thinking is a deliberate choice that needs to be consistently applied. It is a way of life, a way of approaching all of the things that life throws your way.
Knowing and embracing your personal power is made stronger by positive thinking. There is a saying that life is 10% what happens to you, and 90% what you choose to do about it. You are not the victim of circumstance, but a powerful person who can determine your own reality. Choose a negative reaction and you will sow the seeds of more negativity. Choose a positive reaction and you will soon find the sun beginning to peek out from behind the storm clouds. However, must remain optimistic without denying reality.
We have heard much about the Law of Attraction and the Abundant Thinking over the last few years, yet if you think back to your own life, you will likely discover that you had been putting these theories into practice long before you knew their name. Through your education and career, you kept your specific goals in mind over the course of years, and accepted that there would be many obstacles and difficulties along the way. The challenges you faced did not deter you from seeing the value of what it was you were setting out to achieve. When you adamantly base your thoughts on reality, it will seem like everything is being attracted to you. But this is due of course to your own actions forging this path.
Here are a few tools to aid you in positive thinking:
- Consciously choose to block negative thinking and replace it with positive thoughts
- Visualize your success – when we have a clear picture in our mind of what we want in life, our mind works toward making it happen, and we begin to draw to ourselves exactly what we need when we need it
- Obstacles are a healthy part of life and help us grow – view them as such
- Understand yourself –knowing what triggers a negative reaction for you is the first step in changing it
- Take stock of all that you have in your life to be grateful for and keep these things in the forefront of your mind.
What you focus on will determine the course of your life. See the negative and you will be drawn to more of it, see the positive and your life will take on a new meaning and purpose
Positive thinking is a deliberate choice, and when applied with intention to all areas of your life – money, career, love, family, goals – you will become more powerful than you ever imagined. Positive thinking is a way of channeling a powerful energy within you that you can use to your advantage. It is your lens and will signal your body how to react to situations to achieve optimal results. Challenge yourself to make this a new and strong habit that is based within the frame of reality, and witness the way you attract those things in your life that you truly value. A more powerful you awaits…
