Positive Thinking Does Make a Difference!

Positive thinking is something that you hear a lot about these days, especially from motivational speakers like Tony Robbins, Les Brown, John Maxwell, and of course, who could have forgotten Zig Ziglar!

We all know who they are, and even if we don't know them all, most know who Tony Robbins is, the youngest in the crowd at the moment. The truth is even if you make fun of those that talk about positive thinking, it's much needed in a time of a tough economy and when tragedies strike.

A positive mental attitude needs to be reinforced as our world seems to be spiraling out of control, but there are plenty of folks that are left without a leg to stand on, meaning that they have no support system at all. Could it be that you are the only positive influence others see?

This is why it's important that each of us works on building up our faith, our strength, and our life to exemplify something positive that inspires others and brings a smile to their face. Wouldn't it be amazing if we could get others to want what we have in life?

Getting to Positive Thinking 

If we are struggling with a life event, and trying to find answers and find our way, how do we get to the place where we can become more positive and stable in our thinking?

How can we get to the place where we are able to sit and listen to others, taking it all in and helping others that need a word of encouragement? What do we do to get to a place where positive thinking is all that we know? How do we get "stable"? The answer is really this;

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
I BELIEVE that the thinking part in this Scripture is exactly what people need to remember, Christians and non-Christians alike.  I don't know of anyone that wouldn't need to "think on these things", and as we continue to go forward in this life every day we continue to face tragedies that make zero sense.

When we are constantly bombarded with:

  • Murders
  • Theft
  • Stocks crashing 
  • Sickness 
  • Job loss 

It is no surprise that we live in a culture when we  need emotional fitness almost as badly as we need anything else, but so few of us have it. It's time to make a change.

Remember, you could be the only Jesus some folks see, and it pays to have positive mental attitude!
