Fundamental Seven: Develop Positive, Optimistic Thinking


Becoming more positive and optimistic, as happy people are, is simply a matter of training. Anyone can learn to be more positive and optimistic. You just have to practice at it!

Of course one of the more powerful techniques to positive thinking is the “thought switching technique” we discussed earlier in our chapter on Fundamental Five, “Stop Worrying.” Here, however, let me suggest an additional approach. This technique deals with how you interpret actual situations…

As we saw in the last chapter on “Lower Your Expectations and Aspirations,” most of our disappointments in life fall into our high expectations in three categories: high expectations of events; high expectations of others; and high expectations of ourselves These are also the three major categories in which most people’s thoughts tend to dwell: events, others, and ourselves. Few of our everyday thoughts fall outside these three basic topics, thus if one wants to begin to “develop their positive thinking,” here are the best places to begin.

Imagine you have two sets of eye glasses you could wear in any situation. One is the proverbial “rose colored” glasses of optimism. The other is the “blue colored” glasses of pessimism. Imagine further that you could relive every event in your life again and again, with one or the other of these sets of glasses on. How happily or how bleakly would life look?

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.
