Positive power thinking is my twist on positive thinking. It adds oomph to the practice, taking you beyond the simple concepts we often hear about when people describe "The Secret," or the "Law of Attraction."
Positive power thinking is not about denying the challenges we face. It is about rising up to meet them.
No matter what is going on in your life right now- you can completely control how you respond to it. And by doing that you can direct the outcome of what happens next. Under this topic I will be sharing with you very practical tools that include:
Positive power thinking requires you to accept responsibility for where you are in life because unless you do, you can’t take ownership for changing it. That doesn’t mean you beat yourself up for what has gone wrong and all the mistakes you have made. You are human and we all make mistakes. Get over it. It is part of life.
Take ownership of your future. Empower yourself with the idea that the consciousness of your past got you to where you are now. By expanding your consciousness and learning new mind tools to improve your thinking, you can create different outcomes.
Positive power thinking works in accordance with natural law. In addition to the law of attraction that most everyone has heard about, there are other laws governing the universe such as the Law of Cause and Effect – also known as the Law of Karma – you reap what you sow. What you put out includes your thinking – both conscious and unconscious. But that is not all. ACTIONS, habits and words have a rippling effect – whether you are aware of it or not.
MOST people wouldn’t tolerate a lack of positive focus anywhere but in their mind and imagination -- the ONE place where focus matters most. DIRECT YOUR FOCUS, to center your attention on what you want and/or what is GOOD---and keep it there.
Having a positive focus does not mean we don’t pay attention to things that go wrong. It means that when things go wrong we do not waste our time and energy worrying and complaining. We accept them and when the dust has cleared, mindfully make a plan. If solutions are available we apply them. If not, we stay open to possibilities.
Feelings should be validated –not ignored. That is why we include emotional flexibility exercises and mental self help such as stress anxiety management and other ways to manage stress as resources here.
Also realize that most of the time, feelings can be redirected though attention. My basic philosophy for dealing with feelings is explained here by Michael Singer on the Oprah show. Admittedly it is not always easy to do. That is why there are other resources here to help you. If this is an area you need help with please explore other articles offered on the site.
