We should think positive because that is good both for us and our family and also for our country and for every body. If we think negative it is detrimental to our own growth and it affects the growth of our family and the people around us. Imagine a person who always speaks and thinks negative. Will it be good at all?

We should think positive because it's the only way for us to live life to the fullest. If we don't then we're like living but not breathing, living but not loving and living but not hoping. And besides, thinking positive thoughts attracts positive outcomes. So there..:D

It would DEFINITELY benefit EVERYONE if we could train our minds to think positive. One way I find to do this, I take a notebook and write down all the blessing in my life and it helps me not to focus on the bad things that have happened as much. By the time I'm done I find my list of good always outweighs the bad. :)

Why should we think positive? All of our feelings, beliefs, knowledge are based on our internal thoughts. We are in control, whether we know it our not. I personally think we should think positive at all times because, there is not problem which doesn't have any solution to it, right? And if there is, there's no use trying to think of a solution over and over again to a problem which can't be resolved at all, right? So why think negative, when we can instead think of happy things and positive things. I also think that we should always think positively because life is too short too dwell in those problems and negative thought. We should live life to the fullest. Happy myLotting!

We should think positive because think positive could make us calm or take cooly to do something.Have you heard about mind can determine your destiny.we'll do something base on our mind.So,everything we do become habituality.Habituality becomes caracter.althougth we have to think positive,we need wide awake too.We should be charm to face and judge something.

The reason people should think positive is that it improves their self image and self esteem. With your behaviour you affect others as well. When somebody reacts annoying to you that's a punch to your self esteem so when being assertive you can repair this damage and even grow from it.
