(Myers and Dewall, pg.30). If I wake up and I am thinking to myself that this is going to be a bad day, it affects me and I will usually have a bad day. It has been said that positive thinking will produce a positive outcome. According to Darshan Goswami, “Some long term studies on positive thinking and health have been conducted that confirms positive thinking strengthens the immune system and assists in healing.” (The Power of Positive Thinking) By my own observations, I agree with this statement. When I have gone to work thinking that I do not want to be there and that it will be a bad day, I end up having a bad day. The opposite holds true as well. My emotions can have an influence over my health. When I get too upset about something at work, it will literally make me sick to my stomach and end up giving me a headache. If I dwell on not feeling well it can literally make me feel sick. This is another example of how negative and positive thinking can affect health. This gives way to our body’s neural communications and how they send messages to other
When you practice visualization techniques to bring success into your life, you are also following the sixth law of Metaphysics, The Metaphysical Law of Strong Conviction and Positive Expectations. This law states; “That whatever you believe with absolute conviction and confidently expect to happen becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy and will become a reality in your life” (Daher, 2014). When you believe something with outright conviction, you expect it to become true. Your beliefs are based on the two powerful parts of this law which are conviction and expectation. Conviction and expectation recognizes the influential power of your will to succeed. What we expect to happen will happen when we constantly build our convictions about our foreseeable
“You do not need to have outward conditions to have well-being, but have strong inner conditions with which we perceive the world as it is, the mind that translates everything into happiness and suffering” (Ricard). Having strong inner conditions means changing the way people think as positive as they can. “If you look at the thought of anger, it will vanish like frost under the morning sun” (Ricard). When a person feels angry about something or someone, the mind goes again and again to that object. In this case, they need to look inward in order to go from hate to
When you can quiet your mind and focus -- really focus -- on a specific desire, you're using the power of visualization. Some people say they can't visualize, but everyone with a fully functioning mind can imagine whatever they wish.
Prejudices is found virtually everywhere, and will be continually found, if we can’t rise above our own opinions and just listen to what others have to say. It’s not everyone’s fault, it’s the people that encompass one’s life. Therefore, if ones around people that have a negative thought process, one will soon also have the same thought process even though it’s wrong. The only way out of it would be ones self-perseverance in achieving goals in life.
Thinking positively can be a difficult task, no matter the circumstance. When negativity fills you up like helium in a balloon you should always try to find the light in the darkness. Thinking positively doesn’t make the hard times disappear, it helps you survive negativity and the daily conflicts that challenge you. Looking on the bright side of things increases attentiveness, improves your ability to think, and leads to happier thoughts (Psychology Today). No matter what you are going through, you should always stay optimistic. “Man’s Search for Meaning” and “Dear Miss Breed” are great examples of how having a bright outlook can help you survive conflict.
This is one of my negative habits. The concept of being able to control what I think about sits well with me, because if I am able to think about other, happier things in those situations, I may not spiral downward.
Jonas is an eleven year old boy who lives in a community where everything is the same. Jonas has a flashback seeing a jet fly over the community, and everyone was frightened. The speaker comes on and tells everyone that a pilot in training was lost, and was to be released. Jonas says that being released was an “Overwhelming statement of failure.” Jonas' family has to tell their feelings every evening. His sister Lily talks about a visiting group of sevens’ who went to the school who had not obeyed the rules. She implied that they behaved like animals. Jonas’ father, who is a nurturer, tells them about a baby boy who doesn't seem to be growing and developing, as he should. He then states that the baby may be released. Lily wants to
The central root of depression or rather anxiety are the thoughts in our minds that constantly whisper that things are getting worse and won’t get any better culminating to hopelessness. Nevertheless, how we keep our minds in constant peace and from such elements plays a key role. By constantly staying in check of such thoughts, confronting them with sober truth will eventually leave you with a peaceful heart. A constant flow of negative thoughts could adversely empower our depressed mind and the only alternative is to confront them with a positive reality that is worth entertaining.
Givers who usually care about how others think and feel prevent themselves from achieving their own personal goals. For instance, Peter Audet prioritized
When you visualize what you want, your brain will work hard to bridge the gap between reality and what you visualized. Written on page 90 is, “The clearer we envision things the way we want them, the more we increase our chances of having things turn out the way we want them to.” Next time I’m worried about a test, a project, or anything else, I will use visualization to help me achieve the goals that I have set for myself. Once I have a clear picture in my mind of what I want, I'm much more likely to get
An outstanding book such as “The Go-Giver” by Bob Burg and John David Mann can use a business tool. As a business student, I can relate partially to this book and the message that the authors are trying to deliver. We set goals in the business world based on what we want to accomplish as an organization as well as what we would want to get of the business such as a business relationship. We may also seek (from these goals) some sort of benefit. However, these wants that we have in our business mindset may interpret our goals wrongly; most people will continue to take as much as they can and never give. The Go-Giver talks about the five laws of stratospheric
A person’s mind can either be their greatest or worst enemy. Society puts these images and expectations out that make people look at and question their own worth. Often times, negative thoughts can pop into our minds and cause feelings of stress, unhappiness, or
I believe that in life you have to have a positive mindset on the things you do. Having a positive mindset will influence the things that you do. If you are constantly being negative then negative things will happen to you, but if you are positive, positive things will happen to you.
Being positive can help you through life in more way than one, but being ignorant can stop you. The Dalai Lama stated, “In order to carry a positive action we must develop […] a positive vision.” This implies that if someone wants to do something good, they first have to have a positive attitude. When someone does something nice without a positive attitude, in the end, it doesn’t mean much. Also, if someone doesn’t have a good mindset, then they won't be able to finish their task because they will just think negatively towards it. This is true because if someone doesn’t have a good attitude towards something, they won’t try as hard. Correspondingly, Jawaharlal Nehru stated, “Ignorance is always afraid of change.” This conveys that when someone
