We hear all of this stuff about positive thoughts from the moment we can comprehend our environment. Even our best educators try to work it in from time to time, but they are only hinting around the edges. So with no further adieu lets explore positive thoughts and see how we can keep these thoughts in our mainframe brains and eliminate negativity…. which makes up about 98 percent of the media and our daily life cycle.
Our thought patterns are developed by where we were born, what country we were born in, what teachers taught us, what our parents taught us, and all of our relationships with other human beings. The bad news is you can’t change if you were born poor in a war-torn nation, because that is a fact and has a great influence on your overall consciousness and thought patterns.
The good news is you can change from a destructive negative up-bringing to a bright productive person in our society by working very hard on your life’s goals and learning to work with positive people and positive thoughts.
Positive thinking is a mental attitude that admits into the mind thoughts, words and images that are conductive to growth, expansion and success. It is a mental attitude that expects good and favorable results. A positive mind anticipates happiness, joy, health and a successful outcome of every situation and action. Whatever the mind expects, it finds.
Not everyone accepts or believes in positive thinking. Some consider the subject as just nonsense, and others scoff at people who believe and accept it. Among the people who accept it, not many know how to use it effectively to get results. Yet, it seems that many are becoming attracted to this subject, as evidenced by the many books, lectures and courses about it. This is a subject that is gaining popularity.
It is quite common to hear people say: “Think positive!”, to someone who feels down and worried. Most people do not take these words seriously, as they do not know what they really mean, or do not consider them as useful and effective. How many people do you know, who stop to think what the power of positive thinking means?
I was one of them. I was so pessimist I use to see the world where everyone was out to get me. Everyone is the bad and the ugly. Without consciously knowing it one day I met someone who changed my whole life. In the beginning I didn’t feel the changes day after day. Is that me? It was something spontaneous. After a certain number of days I realized that the positive thoughts were having a great effect on me. It was definitely a breakthrough as the whole world looked bright and beautiful and you realized you could do anything you put your positive mind to. A burst of bright energy as if you had been hit with a bolt of lightning. You can’t stop thinking like this when you are surrounded by positive people and things. On the other hand once a person with a depressive negative character is in your presence you also tend to inherit their negativity.
Positive and negative thinking are both contagious. All of us affect, in one way or another, the people we meet. This happens instinctively and on a subconscious level, through thoughts and feelings transference and through body language. People sense our aura and are affected by our thoughts. Is it any wonder that we want to be around positive persons and shun negative ones? People are more disposed to help us if we are positive. They dislike and avoid anyone broadcasting negativity.
Negative thoughts, words and attitude bring up negative and unhappy moods and actions. When the mind is negative, poisons are released into the blood, which cause more unhappiness and negativity. This is the way to failure, frustration and disappointment. adapted from forum.tayyar.org
So there you have it! Is there any reason in the world not to adopt positive thought patterns and actually run as fast as you can from negative persons and thoughts.

THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW: A lesson in life: Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good or bad luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, if they be events, illnesses or relationships, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere. If someone hurts you, betrays you , or breaks you heart, forgive them. For they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to who you open your heart to.
If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because they are teaching you to love and opening your heart and eyes to things you would have never seen or felt without them.
Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take from it everything that you possibly can, for you may never be able to experience it again.
Talk to people you have never talked to before, and actually listen. Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don’t believe in yourself, no one else will believe in you either.
You can make of your life anything you wish. Create your own life and then go out and live it. Quote from http://www.indianchild.com/thoughts_for_life.htm
