21 Mar Why Optimism Matters!
Today’s video is a quick reminder of the tremendous power of positive thinking and challenge for you to apply 30 days of it.
Positive Thinking has become almost a cliché over the years and people talk about it a lot but so few actually live in an optimistic state. But here’s why it’s so important to a happy and successful life: You don’t attract what you want in your life, you attract what you are emotionally involved with! If you are a pessimist, you are emotionally involved in the negative and more negative stuff will come your way. If you are an optimist, you are emotionally involved with the good and that’s what you’ll get.
Optimists are also way more successful at navigating and interpreting life’s challenges – as Winston Churchill famously put it “The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”
So my question is what would you rather be? And the cool thing is it’s a decision. Wake up every morning and decide to be positive all day long. Expect the best. When negative thoughts creep in as they will, bid them adieu and replace them with a positive affirmation. It’s a choice.
Scientific studies have shown that pessimism has a massive impact on our health and wellness – in fact negative people are 50% more likely to get heart disease than their optimistic counterparts. Crazy huh, given that it’s a choice.
I want to issue a little challenge to you – for 30 days starting today, vow each day to expect only the best. Look at your challenges as opportunities and believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that your wildest dreams will come true.
Remember Henry Ford’s famous quote “Whether you think you can or you can’t, either way you are right.” Mindset is everything. Be unwaveringly positive for 30 days straight and see what happens.
A few more tips: Stay away from the news. Avoid gossip magazines and negative people. Don’t listen to detractors and cynics. This is your life and you have control over it!
