I grew up with a mother who was a reader of Norman Vincent Peale’s long standing best selling, The Power of Positive Thinking. Choosing to see life as a glass half full rather than as half empty was a concept I learned to experience at an early age. And, I believed it has served me well. Learning to see the challenges in life as benefits brings immerse power easily used to navigate uncertain waters.
Nowadays, the same concepts are popularly championed by many authors, speakers and web sites. Presented with varying view points and directives, positive thinking, or positively visualizing good in your future, has a way of creating significant benefits in your life and in that of those you love. I like to study all that these positive people have to offer. Showing a strong belief in the eternal good that is always happening is what religions call faith. And a strong faith, believing that G-d has a plan no matter the immediate hardship, will carry a person through to the good times.
Here, Mike Dooley, featured in the book The Secret, gives a presentation to Toastmasters about visualizing good and having it made manifest:
Mike Dooley has an inviting way of speaking to teach that
believing in good will cause wonderful things to happen.
Mike Dooley is the author of the book Infinite Possibilities and is the webmaster of the Totally Unique Thoughts web site providing a great deal of information on the concept. It will expand your horizons and encourage you to allow good to come into your life, if you haven’t already discovered this for yourself. But, even so, a good review helps to affirm the belief and stimulate it into action. See what you think and let me know!
As Mike Dooley says, “Thoughts become things. Choose the good ones!”
