What is positive thinking?

Positive thinking is organizing and directing your thoughts to get the desired results with the right attitude. In simple words, positive thinking means a thought process that helps you attain a positive and peaceful mindset.

Above was the short description of what positive thinking means. Let’s dive into little more details about the power of positive thinking and how it affects and directs your thoughts in the right way.

Later, we will see what are the benefits of positive thinking and some examples. I will also recommend some great books ever written on positive thinking later in this article. So, let’s get started.

Power of positive thinking? Dive Deeper

If you ask me, I would say, positive thinking is like a gate-keeper restricting negative thoughts from entering your mind and influencing your actions.

The above statement looks a little interesting and you might be wondering how your thoughts can influence your activities.

There is a simple calculation, what you feed your mind is what you get as an outcome. I will explain this formula to you soon below.

How to think positive?

Have a look at the below image of mental science to understand what determines your actions.

How to think positive

If you pay close attention to the image above, it is easy for you to understand that the type thought you input your mind determines the type of actions you take.

Your thought and action are of two types, positive and negative. For a positive outcome, you need a positive input to your mind. On the other hand, if you feed negative input, you receive a negative outcome.

And, this is why I said, “what you feed your mind is what you get as an outcome”. Someone rightly said, “what you sow is what you reap”.

It is not your mind that determines your actions but the type of thought you are putting into it. The universe is formed of energy and we are all part of this energy. Everything is energy even our thoughts and actions.

Energy gives you the ability to survive. If you want to survive, you have to direct your energy in the required direction. Else, if this energy gets out of your control, it can make you weak for survival. 

Now let me come to the point. As I mentioned, thought and action is both energy.

If you allow your mind to receive only positive energy, your mind processes it to get you only positive results. By results, I mean, your actions and behavior. 

Now let me break everything further so that you get a clear picture of what’s going on behind the curtain.

Your thoughts decide your thinking, your thinking decides your mood, your mood decides your action, repeated action becomes a habit, your habits decide your behavior and your behavior decides your attitude, your attitude defines your personality and finally your personality defines YOU. 

I hope, by now, you are clear how your thoughts (Root) defines YOU (Tree). So, always be very attentive towards the type of thoughts you are feeding your mind. Make sure to put only good thoughts and stay away from the negative ones.

Once you have understood how your simple thoughts can affect your personality, next is to see some benefits of positive thinking.
