Fundamental Seven: Develop Positive, Optimistic Thinking


Thus far, our discussion of positive, optimistic thinking has revolved around the outside world — the perceptions, interpretations, and selective views we have of the external events, circumstances, and stimuli that preoccupy our mental lives. Such outside occurrences are known to psychology as “triggers,” and such “triggers” probably stimulate the majority of our mental attention.

Yet, depending on the situation at hand, a good percentage of our mental life is determined internally. In these instances, our mind is our own. Here, we make our own assessment of the people and events around us. Here we think of our own private jokes. Here we imagine how other’s are receiving us. Here is where we decide how we feel about them. Here, we can be given to daydreams and fantasy. Here is where we are given to introspection, remembrance, and thoughts of a personal nature. And it is only here that the true content of our thinking patterns can really be assessed.

The question for our present topic is simple: in these private moments, how positive or negative is your thinking?

For the happier people we’ve studied the answer is clear. Most of the thoughts which spontaneously enter their minds are highly positive. And this is part of the reason they are so happy.

A mind filled with pleasant thoughts is a happy mind. So, train yourself to spend more of your mental day in pleasant thinking, like happy people do.

Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll
just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.
Do you have any recommendations for inexperienced
blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you
have hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
I’m very happy I came across this during my search for something relating to this.
