What is Positive Thinking?

July 10, 2019 By Bill Tiefenback


Positive Thinking is a mental attitude that involves the process of entering the thoughts, words, and images constructive (building) for the development of your mind.


Positive thoughts bring happiness, joy, health, and success in every situation and your actions. Whatever your mind would expect, positive thoughts will make it happen.


Not everyone accepts or believes positive thinking patterns. Some people consider positive thought as nonsense and some laugh at those who believe and adopt positive thinking patterns.


However, it can be seen that more and more people are becoming interested in this topic, as can be seen from the large number of books, lectures, and courses on positive thinking.



We often hear people say:   “Think positive!” What happens for people who feel disappointed and frustrated? Many people do not take these words seriously , because they do not know the true meaning of these words, or do not consider it useful and effective.




The following story illustrates how the power of positive thinking works: Beno applied for a job, but had  low self-confidence and he considers himself a failure and does not deserve the success, he felt confident that he was not going to get the job.

He had negative thoughts towards himself and believed that the other prospective employees were better and more qualified than him.


On the day of the interview he got up late,  his Fears Become Reality. He found he was wearing a shirt that as  dirty, even though he had another shirt on the ironing board.

And because he was late, he decided to wear a wrinkled shirt.


During the interview, he felt tense, showing a negative attitude, worried about his shirt, and felt hungry because he did not have enough time for breakfast. His attitude overall made a bad impression, and as a result  his fear - Became a reality  - and he didn’t get the job.


Buddy also applies for the same job. He felt confident that he would get the job. One week before the interview, he reviews value position, and qualifications for the job.


He prepared the clothes he was wearing and went to bed earlier than usual. On the day of the interview, he woke up earlier than usual, so he had enough time to have breakfast, and then arrived at the place before the scheduled interview.

He got the job because he thinks positively of the things he did.


What can we learn from these two stories? Is there a magic used in the story? No, everything is natural.


If we have a positive attitude, constructive images , and we  see in our mind’s eye exactly what we want, we too will radiate goodness, happiness, and success. We make ourselves attractive.
