What Precisely Is Positive Thinking?
The path to positive thinking is defined by Remez Sasson as a mental attitude that admits into the mind thoughts, words and images that are conductive to growth, expansion and success.
He refers to it as 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.
A lot of books have been written on the subject, seminars have been held and people pay a lot of money to attend these seminars and buy these books this only reflects on one thing; people want to achieve success and they are aware of the fact that the only way to achieve this success is through having a positive or optimistic attitude.
The word positive itself means dealing with facts, viewing these facts in a positive manner. Others may say positive thinking is always looking at the bright side of every situation no matter how unfavorable it may be. Optimism and happiness are associated with positive thinkers.
Positive thinking is a skill that can be taught and acquired by anyone; it is a tool that can help you reach your goals, deadlines and dreams. Remez Sasson later labeled positive thinking as the act of reviewing thought processes and personal actions for areas that need improvement and for areas with negative implications, and then using the appropriate tools to change those thoughts or actions in a positive, goal-oriented way.
Basically positive thinking is identifying the negative thoughts in your mind dealing with them by realizing that the negative implications may hinder success and eliminating them from our minds.
With a positive attitude failure may slow you down but it will not stop you from arriving at your destination which is success.
