    It Works~

    I believe in positive thinking because low points suck. But nothing sucks more than being at a low point and thinking that it'll never get better while making no attempt to challenge that thought. Challenge your debilitating thoughts. How you think about your life shapes it, it...

    I absolutely positively believe that being positive in ones life will help you get through even the toughest of times.  I am positive that this attitude is what has helped me walk the path that I have walked rather than giving up and throwing in the towel.

    a beautiful day begins with a beautiful mindset,

    when you wake up take a second to think about what a privilege it is to simply be alive and healthy, the moment you start acting like life is a blessing, i assure you that it will start to feel like one.

    How we think affects our daily lives.

    When we think, we attract. Yes it's true. Have you ever read THE SECRET? it's where everything lies on what they call as The Law of Attraction. We may not get it at first but it really works. When we think about having a good life, surely it will come. But of course, everything...

    Do you ever just stop to listen to your

    thoughts? If you have a spare moment (5 mins is all you need), grab a pen and a piece of paper, draw two columns and label them; positive and negative. Make sure to find somewhere quiet to sit where you won't be disturbed so you can observe your thoughts. Don't judge or...

    Our thought process has a HUGE impact on our

    daily lives. The amount of negative thinking and speech would put out is surprisingly high. I encourage everyone to consciously try to change that for at least one day. It's amazing how different you feel on the inside. Once you make it habit, everything seems so wonderful. It...

    Positive thinking is great

    but we must be careful to do it in such a way that it doesn't justify a life of complacency.

    Change the way you look today.

    Why waste time? It doesn't carry over the next day. It doesn't earn interest. Take every day and every moment, and make something of it. Make something positive!
