6 Things Your Mom Would Tell You About the Power of Positive Thinking

Mothers are smart.  Above all else, they love you and want you to be happy.  They know that a cheerful child will get along easier in this world.  To be sure, if you’re able to live your life being pleasant and upbeat, you’ll have more friends and more opportunities.  This is where the power of positive thinking triumphs over negative self-talk.

Your Mom would tell you that there is a secret to safely achieving whatever you want out of life.  Indeed, that secret is the power of positive thinking.

Harnessing the power that comes with positive thinking is vital to realizing a successful life.  And yet, this really sounds too simple.  You might ask, “Are you saying that if I’m sure that I’ll achieve something, then I will?”  The answer is, “Yes if that dream is capable of being done, effected, or accomplished, your mind will help you attain it.

Mom says the following 6 items will allow you to use the power of positive thinking to live your best life.

1.  Gratitude

Being thankful for the opportunities you’ve had up to this point is essential when you’re looking to move forward.  Then, rather than being wistful about the things you don’t have, you’ll be able to express gratitude for what you’ve got.  This will go far towards helping you achieve your heart’s desire.

2.  Curiosity

Develop an intense need to know and understand all aspects of your dream.  Above all, become the curious individual who looks harder for creative ways to achieve success.  Curiosity allows you to be a visionary.

3.  Positive Affirmations

Program yourself to be successful by using positive affirmations.  And, be sure to always use the present tense.  You need to feel that you’ve already accomplished what you set out to do or receive.

The use of positive affirmations will let the universe know your intent.  At the same time, your subconscious will begin to point you in the right direction allowing you to take the steps necessary to reach your goals.

4.  Mindful Thoughts and Actions

Grounded activities such as yoga and meditation help to calm and focus the spirit.  As a matter of fact, actions like these provide the perfect opportunity to look within for the solution to your quest.  Making the time to stop and breathe opens your mind and body to answers that perhaps aren’t so obvious.

5. Education/Knowledge

It’s through education that you’ll gain the knowledge needed to complete your goal.  Whether you’re seeking money, experiences, travel, or a lifestyle upgrade, you’ll be required to study and learn all you can.  Affirmations are great, but please know that the information you need will not drop down from the heavens.  There is no doubt that only with a strong daily effort will you receive the prize.

6.  Support of Family and Friends

Finally, surround yourself with others who are sure that you’ll realize your vision.

Live a grateful life.  Be Strong.  Stay positive!

So, listen to your Mama.  Be happy knowing the world is at your feet and she’s got your back.  Appreciate the little steps you take along the way.  Just keep moving forward, one foot in front of the other. Undoubtedly, that’s the power of positive thinking.

“Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so let us all be thankful.”

  1. I mentioned on another blog yesterday, Barbara. When I see my reflection accidently or on purpose; no matter how tired I look, with make-up, no make-up, whatever, I say:
    Hello gorgeous! This has the affect of cheering me up to a point I can actually burst into spontaneous laughter! It’s all about feel good energies, for sure!
    And this post sure is about feeling good.. 🙂
