Fundamental Seven: Develop Positive, Optimistic Thinking


The ultimate conclusion to such an positive appraisal of one’s life lies in an honest assesment of one’s actual circumstances — or what many call a “blessings list.”

How are you blessed? Especially compared to others who are less fortunate?

Here, the strategy is to work on a listing of all the positives you have in your life. For most of us, such a list should be virtually endless. To begin with, most of us could begin with the most modest of blessings:

I have a place to sleep and enough food to eat..

I have decent car (or regular form of transportation).

I have people who love me.

I have enough to get by, financially.

I’ve got a close family.

I have beautiful nature around me.

I have achieved success.

My children are healthy and happy.

Indeed, many of us living in the developed nations, could easily list hundreds of more specific, material and non-material “blessings” (like the homes we own; the swimming pools, fine jewelry, household furniture, and other property we might possess; the educational and economic opportunities we enjoy; the liberties of freedom and fair justice our governments may provide; etc.)

The list of such positive things in one’s life should be in the hudreds, if one examines it closely:

I’ve got a great job!

What a nice neighborhood I live in.

I’ve got great friends!

We’re so proud of our daughter!

The weather here is the best in the country…

I love my new coffee table

I have the most fashionalble wardrobe in town!

I had a bit-part in the movie Star Wars.

Well, all but the last one , for most of us…

It’s almost futile to even start listing the thousands of potential “blessings” any person might find appropriate to their personal list. It migh take hundreds of extra pages of suggestions just to scratch the surface, for no list or examples could even come close to including the special “blessings” which might be particularly yours.

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.
