The Power of Positive Thinking: What You Can Do To Save The Day

Nov 12th 2010 at 8:58 AM

How many of you greet the day with a positive outlook? Lets see a show of hands......wow, not very many, huh?  That is not really much of a surprise.

Most of us have a tendency to wake up, feeling like you didn't have  enough sleep, the day is gray and overcast, maybe we have a ton of things to do and we don't look forward to it. Sound familiar? I know it used to for me.

Years ago, I did not have any knowledge of positive thinking...no clue. I would bitch, moan and complain about just about everything.  How do you think people around me felt?  "Oh god, there's Dan, the ultimate griper".  Talk about someone you really didn't want to be around much...:).

When I was injured in a work accident in 1978 and was in the hospital, a nurse told me I needed to think about positive things and not to worry, it would help me through my physical therapy and I would get better, faster.

I wanted to believe her, so I made up my mind that I was going to look at things in a fresh, new way. That was my first experience with the power of the mind.

I set out to be the best patient and I had a goal; to get back on my feet again, to walk, to go water skiing again. I worked hard, went to the gym, sweated and refused to believe that I would never walk.

One year to the month of my injury, two friends of mine took me on a boat to go water skiing. I got out on two skis and dropped one and started to slalom.  Can you imagine how I felt?  I was elated! I had done it.

I started a job in marketing and sales and over time, started to go to little seminars to improve my sales output. Most everything that I encountered was dealing with the mind and how it can make us a positive and more valuable person to the company.

I started to realize that I could take this new found knowledge and use it to my advantage throughout all phases of my life. People would enjoy my friendship, because I had a positive impact on them. More often than not, I was experiencing  joy, great relationships, better results in my career and more opportunities that came my way. I was given awards and recognized among my peers.

This has also compounded my achievements as a disabled athlete, making me work harder and have greater expectations in what I wanted to accomplish. I looked at everything in a positive light and even if I failed, or couldn't do something right, I would ALWAYS look ahead and knew that I could do it. I just knew it.

You can do yourself a favor by looking into this simple, yet very powerful way to change your own life. Read as much as you can about visualization, the power of thinking positive and how to re-arrange your thought processes. It can change your perspective on everything and help you be successful in your relationships and your career.

When you are trying to work at home, making income online, this new found awareness will be a great attribute to be a successful Internet marketer and will help you to be a affiliate marketing powerhouse.

I believe that it will open your eyes to how you perceive the world today, tomorrow and in the future. I know it and that is the way you have to see it.

Power of Positive Thinking

Conceive, Believe and Achieve.

God Bless.
