Positive Thinking, Your Key to Success
  • 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.

  "Think positive!",
  • 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. 

6
THE NEGATIVE THOUGHT
  • Many people have found that, when they tune in to
    their internal dialogue, much of it is negative.
    Thoughts like, I could never do that and What
    if I fail? can seriously impact the way we
    behave. Stress, apparently associated with
    attachment to this negative internal dialogue, in
    turn, affects every aspect of our lives.
  • When we are stressed, specific hormones circulate
    in the body. Released infrequently, these
    hormones are harmless, produced continuously,
    they are associated with serious damage.
    Cardiovascular disease is related in part to
    continuous bombardment of stress hormones and
    arterial damage caused by free radicals created
    in the process.

7
HOW DO WE? HOW CAN WE?
  • Letting go of attachment to these negative
    thoughts and emotions is liberating. This is a
    process in itself that is well worth the effort.
    Very effective methods to help to place the mind
    at ease have been developed over thousands of
    years. Perhaps Meditation would benefit.

HOW TO THINK POSITIVE

ANTS

Squash the "ANTs"
  •                 When we direct our thoughts
    properly, we can control our emotions. W.
    Clement Stone
  • In his book "Change Your Brain, Change Your
    Life," Dr. Daniel Amen talks about "ANTs"
     Automatic Negative Thoughts. These are the bad
    thoughts that are usually reactionary, like
    "Those people are laughing, they must be talking
    about me," or "The boss wants to see me? It must
    be bad!" or my employees are whispering, they
    must be up to something mischievous.When you
    notice these thoughts and realize that they are
    nothing more than ANTs squash them

11
Positive thinking techniques
  • Take care of yourself. 
  • As you begin to follow a healthier lifestyle,
    you are giving yourself the message that you are
    worth taking care of.  Even if youre not sure
    yet if you believe that, youll soon start to
    feel better physically, and that will help you
    feel more positive.  Exercise several times a
    week, eat healthy foods, and learn some
    relaxation techniques for when you need to take a
    stress break.

12
Positive Thinking Techniques
  • Surround yourself with positive energy. 
  • Make sure that the people around you are
    optimistic in their outlooks.  Nothing is more
    contagious than negativity, so try to banish it
    in your environment.

Positive thinking is contagious.
  • People around you pick your mental moods and are
    affected accordingly. Think about happiness, good
    health and success, and you will cause people to
    like you and desire to help you, because they
    enjoy the vibrations that a positive mind emits.

15
NEGATIVITY IS CONTAGIOUS
  • Nothing is more contagious than negativity, so
    try to banish it in your environment.

16
SPOT-CHECK YOUR ATTITUDE. 
  •   Several times a day, take a moment to analyze
    what youre thinking.  Are you being positive or
    negative?  If the latter, try to reframe the
    situation in more positive terms.  By becoming
    more self-conscious about your negativity, youll
    learn to curb it.

17
USE POSITIVE SELF-TALK. 
  • Encourage yourself by giving yourself positive
    affirmations e.g., I am a self-confident
    individual who has much to offer.  Avoid the use
    of could-a and should-a messages to yourself.
    Change what you need to change, and try not to
    beat yourself up in the process.  Allow a little
    humor into your talk.  Laughing at yourself and
    at life does reduce stress.

18
Remind Yourself of the Things You Are Grateful
For.
  •                 Like success, failure is many
    things to many people. With positive mental
    attitude, failure is a learning experience, a
    rung on the ladder, and a plateau at which to get
    your thoughts in order to prepare to try again.
    W. Clement Stone
  • Stresses and challenges don't seem quite as
    bad when you are constantly reminding yourself of
    the things that are right in life. Taking just 60
    seconds a day to stop and appreciate the good
    things of life will make a huge difference. When
    you are down or on the verge of failure close
    your eyes and remind yourself of intricate
    problems you have solved in the past. This action
    will boost your morale to face your challenges in
    business squarely. Its called drawing
    inspiration from your past exploits.

19
FALURES ARE THE PILLARS OF SUCCESS
  • I once failed in my 12th grade and my Father
    said, Don't worry son failures are the pillars
    of success . I was immediately elevated to a
    positive mood and resolved to do better. But then
    I failed again and father said , Son will you
    keep building the pillars? Won't you build a
    house on it? I understood his frustration, but
    the way he reprimanded me was unique. I never
    looked back after that.
  • THIS IS THE POSITIVE STROKES THAT WE FAIL TO GIVE
    OUR CHILDREN.

20
.            Look for the Proof Instead of
Making Assumptions
  • A fear of not being liked or accepted sometimes
    leads us to assume that we know what others are
    thinking, but our fears are usually not reality.
    If you have a fear that a friend or family
    member's bad mood is due to something you did, or
    that your employees are secretly gossiping about
    you when you turn your back speak up and ask
    them. Don't waste time worrying that you did
    something wrong unless you have proof that there
    is something to worry about.

21
Refrain from Using Absolutes
  • Have you ever told a partner "You're ALWAYS
    late!" or complained to a friend "You NEVER call
    me!"? Thinking and speaking in absolutes like
    'always' and 'never' makes the situation seem
    worse than it is, and programs your brain into
    believing that certain people are incapable of
    delivering. If you want to develop a positive
    thinking mental attitude, then you need to
    radiate positivity you need to watch your words.

22
Detach From Negative Thoughts
  • I believe this is a little bit self explanatory.
    Your thoughts can't hold any power over you if
    you don't judge them. If you notice yourself
    having a negative thought, detach from it,
    witness it and don't follow it.

23
.            Practice Loving, Touching
Squeezing on your Friends and Family
  • You don't have to be an expert to know the
    benefits of a good hug. Positive physical contact
    with friends, loved ones, and even pets, is an
    instant pick-me-up.

24
Increase Your Social Activity
  • By increasing social activity, you decrease
    loneliness. Surround yourself with healthy, happy
    people and their positive energy will affect you
    in a positive way.

25
  • HEALTHY HAPPY PEOPLE. A GOOD LAUGHTER IS
    POSITIVITY ENHANCED.

26
.            Volunteer for an Organization, or
Help another Person
  • Everyone feels good after helping. You can
    volunteer your time, your money, or your
    resources. The more positive energy you put out
    into the world, the more you will receive in
    return. Helping a person in need will lighten
    your spirit and give you a positive
    mentality that you are contributing your quota to
    helping the world.

Change your friends and associates
  •                 Be careful of the environment
    you choose for it will shape you. Be careful the
    friends you choose for you will become like
    them. W. Clement Stone
  • . Positive or negative attitudes are contagious
    habits I am sure you dont want to get infected
    with the negative ones. Severe friendship with
    pessimist and cynics befriend those with the I
    can do it kind of attitude.

29
Change your environment
  • you are a product of your environment. You
    environment will directly or indirectly influence
    your thoughts and actions.

30
  •                 Why does United States have the
    highest number of billionaires in the world?
  •                 Why does the United States have
    the highest number of successful immigrants?

31
  • I am neither an American, nor do I reside there
    but I can feel their patriotism and positive
    attitude just by watching them on T.V. Its this
    same positive mental attitude that made a Kenyan
    in the person of Barrack Obama emerge president
    of the United States.
  • So wheres all these illustrations pointing to?
    Well, its pointing to one lesson, which is be
    careful of the environment you choose. If your
    environment doesnt radiate positivity, please
    relocate.

32
Use Pattern Interrupts to Combat Rumination
  • If you find yourself ruminating, a great way to
    stop it is to interrupt the pattern and force
    yourself to do something completely
    different. Rumination is like hyper-focusing on
    something negative. It's never productive,
    because it's not rational or solution-oriented,
    it's just excessive worry. Try changing your
    physical environment, go for a walk or sit
    outside. You could also call a friend, pick up a
    book, or turn on some music. OR LOOK UP AND GAZE
    AT THE SKY

SCORE INTERPRETATION
37
SCORE INTERPRETATION
  • Permanence
  • (Questions 3, 4, 9, 11)
  • Believing that something we are experiencing is
    either permanent or temporary. A low score
    implies that you think bad times will carry on
    forever. A high score shows confidence that
    you'll be able to get things back on course
    quickly.

38
SCORE INTERPRETATION
  • Pervasiveness
  • (Questions 2, 5, 6, 7 and 13)
  • Believing that situational factors cause an
    effect or that the effect is evidence of more
    universal factors at work. A low score shows that
    you tend to think that if you've experienced a
    problem in one place, you'll experience that
    problem wherever you go.

39
SCORE INTERPRETATION
  • Personalization
  • (Questions 1, 8, 10, 12 and 14)
  • Believing that something about you influenced the
    outcome or that something external to you caused
    it. A low score indicates that you tend to blame
    yourself for bad things, rather than attributing
    the cause to more general factors.

Training your subconscious mind!
  • Think of it like learning to drive. At first it
    takes all of your conscious effort to watch all
    the cars around you, control the steering wheel,
    peddles, and turn signals, all while trying to
    figure out what lane to go in and where to turn.
    But as you keep at it day after day,
    your subconscious brain learns from all that
    repetition and eventually takes over. If you've
    been driving for a while now, consider how much
    you do without really paying attention. That's
    your subconscious mind doing the work for you!

42
THE BULLETS OF POSITIVE THINKING
  • Always use only positive words while thinking and
    while talking. Use words such as, 'I can', 'I am
    able', 'it is possible', 'it can be done',
    etc.Allow into your awareness only feelings of
    happiness, strength and success.Try to
    disregard and ignore negative thoughts. Refuse to
    think such thoughts, and substitute them with
    constructive happy thoughts.In your
    conversation use words that evoke feelings and
    mental images of strength, happiness and success

43
  • Before starting with any plan or action,
    visualize clearly in your mind its successful
    outcome. If you visualize with concentration and
    faith, you will be amazed at the results.Read
    at least one page of inspiring book every
    day.Watch movies that make you feel
    happy.Minimize the time you listen to the news
    and read the papers.Associate yourself with
    people who think positively.Always sit and walk
    with your back straight. This will strengthen
    your confidence and inner strength.

44
  • Walk, swim or engage in some other physical
    activity. This helps to develop a more positive
    attitude.
  • Think positive and expect only favorable results
    and situations, even if your current
    circumstances are not as you wish them to be. In
    time, your mental attitude will affect your life
    and circumstances and change them accordingly.

VERY IMPORTANT SLEEP
  • Sleep more soundly!
  • Sleep appears essential to improve and maintain
    energy levels, immune system effectiveness,
    mental and emotional clarity and overall
    well-being. When you feel good, you function
    better.

49
  • Minimize attaching to mental activity in the
    evening.
  • Make appropriate preparations for the next day.
  • Take a hot bath before bedtime to promote ease.
  • Soothing fragrances, lights, and music may help
    as well.
  • Limit activities in bed to sleep and intimate
    encounters only - avoid TV.

50
  • Try listening to repetitive soothing natural
    sounds (waves, wind, waterfall, stream, etc.)
    from a selected high quality sound device.
  • Natural homeopathic, nutritional and herbal
    support may prove useful (e.g. calcium,
    melatonin, passionflower or valerian before bed).
  • Turn off all the lights.
