Think Positive and the Affirmation game
I know many people who ‘poo poo‘ the ‘think positive and affirm‘ mindset. And yes, at times, in dark and depressing situation it seems almost impossible to ‘think positive, however, with time and practise, you can choose to try and see the positive in any situation. Its truly a skill you can learn and its a choice to see a little light instead of complete darkness. I don’t think you should use it as a way to ignore glaringly obvious issues, but it sure helps to keep a clear head instead of dwelling on the negative.
“A man’s mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must, and will, bring forth. If not useful seeds are put into it, then an abunance of useless weed seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind.”
― James Allen, As a man Thinketh
