Why Some Succeed While Others Fail

“Some people think one’s ability to think positive is silly. They don’t believe it is good for anything. In fact, they believe it may be hoping against hope that something comes to pass and that most positive thinkers only end up getting disappointed. Do you think this is true?

I think it is possible that anyone, at anytime, could get disappointed. Things don’t always work out as planned. That is for certain. I don’t think positive thinking will get you to do anything.  BUT, you will get better results with positive thinking, than with negative thinking.

Positive thinking doesn’t ensure things happen a certain way. It means you have control over your mind to look for solutions when things go wrong, instead of spiraling down in defeat. It means you have trained your mind to look for possibilities and opportunity.

Whether You Think You Can Or You Think You Can’t You’re Right

Things may, and do, go wrong for the positive thinker. But the positive thinker overcomes that which goes wrong. The positive thinker overcomes because the positive thinker has trained their thinking in the same way an Olympic athlete trains to do their best.

It is worth it to learn to control your thoughts and feelings. Your mindset and attitude do control how far you travel. Some people are stopped by limiting beliefs, thoughts of fear and anxiety, or for any number of reasons. The optimistic positive thinker may not be.

The positive thinker doesn’t succumb to excuses, reasons, blames and complaints because the positive thinker is conditioned to rise above them. Positive thinking is learning to be in charge of your mind so you can get the results you determine to get.

You Get What You Focus On – What You Focus On Expands

Positive thinking is brain training. It is training your mind to submit to you. You are in charge and your thoughts support you. Your feelings support  you. You take inspired actions. You get more of the results you go after, because nothing detours or stops you.

The positive thinker finds good in all. Finds opportunity and blessings hidden in problems and challenges. The positive thinker is able to adjust, to find or create ways, to succeed in the mission. The positive thinker is able to delight in the journey and not be distracted. The positive thinker celebrates everything!” Rex Sikes
