It's my second day here on MyLot so hope I do everything right. This is just more a curiousity of how many people here believe in the power of positive thinking. If so how has this impacted on your life as a whole? Any nice stories to share? Or even any advice on how to keep it up. I've been trying to just have positive and loving thoughts myself all the time but for some reason it doesn't always seem to be an easy task. Looking forward to your answers :)

I believe in the power of thinking positively because it attracts the aura of good karma.This was my topic before and it has some responses from other members.

I think that way too and do my best to always think like that. I know I found another topic only posted 5 hours ago but when I did a search it showed me no recent questions like it so that's why I posted. What good is the search function if it doesn't work? :P It's my 2nd day and wanted to ask a question, I like knowing peoples thoughts on this :)

What should I do better is to think another discussion.

That sounds very petty of that person. How can you take someones idea for a question? I'll bet you anything that it's not the first time their question was asked so they would have stolen it from someone else :D Yeah I had another question I was going to post but I think I've found answers through search but they were posted 5 or 6 years ago. I noticed we can upload photos but I don't think there is payment for that. I'll have to think of more questions :)

Indeed the power of positive thinking is important. In many respects it is not unlike this whole "Law of Attraction" movement. Through seeking to manifest positive outcomes for ourselves, we draw more positivity into our lives. Conversely, if we dwell on the negative things life presents us with, then we draw in more negativity. One must condition their own thoughts, and in turn transform those positive thoughts into action. Always actively seek to bring more positive energies into your life, and it will happen. The key to never forget is focus. Focus on what you want in your life, not on what you don't want. Too often we focus on the wrong energies. I'll freely admit; it is not always easy. In fact sometimes it can be especially difficult, particularly on days when things just don't seem to be going well. On those days, take a few deep breaths, get a fresh drink of water, and put your mind into a mode of starting over. It's amazing what that kind of "day reset" can do.

Yes you are absolutely right. I really do try and do this everyday, it can be difficult to always stay focused and positive. That's the challenge for me is if I slip into a negative thought about something I need to try snap out of it. I try to use the law of attraction and I know it works so just have to stick with it. Thanks for your response :)

Of course, there is no chance for us to focus on the negativity as we have a life to live and success to achieve. I myself always try and focus on one good thought the entire day and not delve on anything else as we can easily become distracted and well positive thinking leads to more concentration and a strong desire to succeed.

Me too, I really try to do this but lately my emotions have been controlling me instead of the other way around, not often that happens but it's really annoying! Most of the time though I focus on positives and find I live a much happier life because of it. Thanks for sharing :)

Yes, the power of positive thinking is necessary to get job done, it make a person get his but* up and do somethings positive to solve his problem instead of waiting for solution to come to him. I believe having the power of positive thinking is an essential element in every successsful career, business venture, or personal growth. Without positive thinking inside your mind, one will face great difficulty to overcome the many problems and issue he faces everyday. With positive thinking, one will be motivated to find solution and solve problem, hence lead to success.

That's a fantstic resonse there and one I had not given a lot of thought about and you are right. If people in business were always pesimistic they would fail most likely. I only really thought about the personal growth side but positive thinking would be essential with most if not all types of situations. Thank you for commenting.
