The Power Of Positive Thinking

If you want to be successful in your life, you have to start by changing the way you think. Proverbs 23:37 "For as he thinks in his heart so is he." What you think eventually manifests in one way ore another.The difference between the people who make it in life and those who do not, is not the schools they went to or the place they were born in, it is the way they choose to think and believe. If the homes we were born in or the schools we went to would determine our success eventually, then we would expect all people who went to the same school to have the same level of achievement. However this is not true, you will find a very successful person who emerged from one of the worst performing schools and a non successful person who emerged from schools considered to be the best.

Successful people have one thing in common, positive thinking. "A man is but the product of his thoughts; what he thinks, he becomes." Mahatma Gandhi. If you think limitations, limitations is what you get, you think problems, problems is what you get, if you think love, love is what you get and if you think success, success is what you get.

The world around us has a lot of negative energy, it is easy to be part of the negative energy and this explains why few people are successful and many are not. You have to make a deliberate choice to think positive, it is not going to be easy, but if you really want to be among the few who have made it in life you have to do it. Start by surrounding yourself with positive people,read materials that encourage you to think positive, listen to materials that encourage you to live the same lifestyle you desire and you are halfway there. But most of all you have to affirm yourself.

It is unfortunate that some of us have been brought up in a society or homes that have taught us to believe and live within our limitations. You may have heard this many times, this is not for you, our family has never done that, leaders have never emerged from our community and the like. Unknowingly, our mind and our hearts have been programmed to think and believe limitations. The day we know how limitless our capabilities are, that is the day we will find our freedom, spread out our wings and soar like eagles. Luke 17:6 Jesus tells His disciples, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.” The good news is, it is not late to re-program your mind to think positive, have powerful thoughts without limitations and live your dreams. Let not your past define you, rewrite your future and start by thinking positive, believe that it is possible to achieve and live your dreams .
