We'll as we all know a lot of people are always thinking negative because a lot of us have bills and problems. The first thing I have notice is that mostly everyone when they have problem the first thoughts that come to there mind are negative so with that said how about I put the question this way. How often do you think positive when you have problems or things that a lot of us would think in a negative way? Does it help when you think positive more than when you think negative? Or the outcome turns out to be the same? I think the outcome changes when you think positive because you will get better results on things. What Do you guys here in my lot think?

i think everyone get the negative thinking because they have no enough faith in themselves,one's ability to do something well belong to the confidence,only the sacarity in confidence,the person always leading a negative result , confidence is an improtant psychological factor in our life ,a self-confidence person will find the work much easier and more intresting than one that holds a gloomy view on one's own'a ability , so we need confidence

I agree with your response. A lot of people get negative because they don't have enough faith in themselves or confidence to due things. I really like your response to this question.

i do this on a daily basis. i always try to find the bright spot in things if i can and if cannot i let myself work through it. i allow myself to feel so to speak. we have money problems and my way of thinking positive is by doing my part to help make ends meet. instead of just sitting back and waiting for luck or good fortune i think positive and go after things to make life easier for myself and my family. thinking positive does make a difference in how you feel. i encourage my son to do the same every day.

I try to think positive even I face problems. I think thinking negative will only cause more problem. By taking positive, maybe solution can be find. Negative think will create negative energy and get more problems. Usually many people will think negative first. After reading secret, I know I need to think positive. Therefore, whenever I feel down or sad, I try to think happy moments in my life.

i am always positive. maybe that is because of my positivity that i am able to fully live well even if there are problems we encountered in our lives along the way. i just think that we would be able to work it all out in its own time.

As like other even i was initially thinking everything negative and once i heard in a church message that whatever we think happens , especially negative things happens in life , for instance if you see a accident and when you fear you will also die in life like that accident , surely it will happen in life and people are see as a incident , they wont experience this.I mean when people think everything positive even if there is no way our for a positive thing to happen our positive thoughts will boost us up and we will handling things very easily and take good decision during the crisis , no one should fear for problems too.. and now im building my positive attitude towards everything in life :)

i am a pretty positive thinker almost all the time (unless i am really tired) and i am usually upbeat. i am pretty creative and usually try to see all sides of an issue or problem and try to solve it creatively.

I am changing my life through positive thinking so I think as positive as I can. Once in a while a negative thought shows up but it is my job to change right away. I believe I am living even better because of it.

everyday when i woke up i think postive, specaily if i am able to get out of bed. even with money problmes or health issues i think postive by me thinking postive i am able to go to work and earn extra money, if i didn't my wife would be taking me to the er all the time again for pain med shots.. thinking postive is good, if you surround yourself around postive people it will bring postive things into your life, but if we are around negtive people that does effic us in ways.. most people don't see that.

I am always thinking negative. But then what? I laugh, and think positive. I always try to stay positive by being happy. If I lost something, I always think it's not my lost or I could get it back. If I'm depressed I'll have a few laughs with the TV show. It's a very good thing to have a positive outlook in life. It really helps if you are more positive than negative in the fact that being positive gives you more hope, or it sparks ideas. Thinking negative also have some positive outcome as well, as you dig deeper into things and blame yourself and stuff and actually realize things. It happens to me all the time. But then the good outcomes does not always come from a positive things, but most of the time it is. So for me it's better to think positive than negative.

Positive thinking is always the best way to go.I myself am a very negative thinker,I think depression is a lot of the reason people think negatively,that and life experiences.An example I can give is I went to a birthday party for my friends aunt who was turning 70 years old.I couldn't believe this lady and her mother they were up dancing and acting like teenagers.I said to my friend,well this is what you have to look forward to when you are 70.Her response was.oh no I don't want to live that long hell no.I thought then what a negative way of looking at this.Maybe it is her negative attitude that is causing all her depression.

I consider myself a very positive thinker to spite all the hard knocks Iv had in my life, but I'm also a realist and I'm the kind of person who prefers to except that life is not perfect, and some people might consider that as being negative and I just dont live by blind posativity, for example I have known people in my life that to spite all the signs that a situation is going to turn out badly the person still choose to live in a state of daniel and be blind to the facts of life I'm just not that way but I am very positive and optimistic about life.

I will always think positive. Maybe the only reason I think negative is when I have HIV.

I'd like to think I'm a really positive person, but unfortunately can not always be the case. When we have our personal problems, we tend to think negatively and the possibility of getting side-tracked. Anyway, being positive is a great thing, and I think it should be in our nature to put in all our efforts to do this.

I always try to see everything happening to me as a positive thing, whenever i got negative thoughts i say this while visualising it " My negative thoughts becoming weeker and weeker, My positive thoughts becoming stronger and stronger" it works for me, it also diverts my mind. Most of that i believe in "Law of Attraction" what we think today we will attract and get it in our future.
