Positive thinking is a powerful tool that has the ability to transform our lives, from our mental and emotional well-being to our physical health and even our success in achieving our goals. At its core, positive thinking is about cultivating an optimistic outlook and focusing on the good in any situation, rather than dwelling on the negative.

Research has shown that positive thinking can have a profound impact on our mental health. Studies have found that individuals who practice positive thinking are more resilient in the face of stress and adversity, and are less likely to develop depression and anxiety. This is because positive thinking helps us to reframe our thoughts and emotions in a more constructive way, allowing us to see challenges as opportunities for growth and learning, rather than insurmountable obstacles.

In addition to its benefits for mental health, positive thinking can also have a positive impact on physical health. Studies have found that individuals who practice positive thinking have lower levels of stress hormones, lower rates of cardiovascular disease, and stronger immune systems. This is because positive thinking can help to reduce the harmful effects of stress on the body, which can contribute to a wide range of health problems.

So how can we cultivate a more positive mindset? One of the most effective ways is through the practice of mindfulness. Mindfulness involves being present in the moment and observing our thoughts and emotions without judgment. By practicing mindfulness, we can become more aware of our negative thought patterns and learn to reframe them in a more positive light. This can help to reduce stress, increase resilience, and improve our overall well-being.

Another important aspect of positive thinking is gratitude. Gratitude involves focusing on the good in our lives and being thankful for the blessings we have, rather than focusing on what we lack. Research has shown that individuals who practice gratitude have higher levels of happiness and life satisfaction, and are more likely to experience positive emotions such as joy and contentment.

Finally, it's important to surround ourselves with positivity. This means spending time with people who uplift and inspire us, engaging in activities that bring us joy and fulfillment, and seeking out positive news and media. By surrounding ourselves with positivity, we can create a more supportive and uplifting environment that helps us to maintain a positive mindset even in the face of challenges.

In conclusion, positive thinking is a powerful tool that can have a profound impact on our mental and physical well-being, as well as our success in achieving our goals. By practicing mindfulness, gratitude, and surrounding ourselves with positivity, we can cultivate a more optimistic outlook and transform our lives in meaningful ways. So the next time you find yourself facing a challenge, remember to focus on the good and take a positive perspective – you just might be surprised by the results. #positivethinking # #motivation

I'm telling you the truth... (MUST READ)

You may not ever find what you're looking for in life if you're searching for external answers. Why? Because you can't see the forest for the trees with your natural eyes. Your best qualities are hidden in the desires of your heart which activates the greatness WITHIN you.

Your self-worth and value comes to life when you're wholeheartedly willing to change self defeating habits operating in your mind, such as:

  1. Stop finding faults in yourself when you look in the mirror.
  2. Start appreciating yourself for who you are.
  3. Stop living by other people's standards and values.
  4. Start setting your own standards of expectations.
  5. Stop blocking your future based negative results from the past.
  6. Start giving yourself new reasons for living and giving the best of yourself.

Discover the BEST YOU and life will never be the same. Are you willing to try?

I Believe You Can...!

I’m a big believer in power of positive thinking (even though I may falter in practicing it from time to time). Here’s a fun short article with a good hack to stay positive. Summary: practice the opposite of complaining. #positiveThinking

Good Evening Community!
As this night comes to a close so do many thoughts as to why something did not go right or our way. I often try to reflect on what I will do better to make a difference or positive change in my life? Often in the past I would get caught up in the blame game. Finally, I realized it was a time to make changes in my thought process and negative behavior which was not easy to do. One of the things I focused on was the negative people in my circle,. Second I did a process of eliminating bad thoughts from holding me back from making the changes I truly knew I had to make to make a positive change. We are humans and do not like change in our life. When I write a post I write from the experiences of my past with one goal in mind, to help anyone so they do not have to make the mistake I made and that was not listening to the positive people who tried to offer advice to me. Each and everyone of us that are part of this community have a great advantage, why? Because we have each other others share our thoughts, feelings and most importantly what we can do better to help each other as you have for me. With this said I would like to Thank Each and Everyone of You for being a part of my life as I am yours. Secondly, Thank You Job case and all your employees for Everything you Do and Offer here in this Community! Good Night!

Looking for jobs can be tough, but just know that you are NOT alone! You’ve stayed strong through this process and I hope you can stay strong just a little longer. When you’re upset take a few deep breaths. When things seem hopeless do something that brings you up. Read a book that you never had the chance to finish, teach yourself something new, or enjoy a meal with a friend (even if it’s a peanut butter and jelly sandwich). Please take a few minutes and share what has kept you going and motivated. There are those out there in the community ready to give up, and they really need your help.

Are you a glass ½ empty kind of person? If so you might want to try pushing yourself to be a little more positive. Yes things are hard, but you gotta keep on going. I just read this article that was pretty interesting. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/david-r-hamilton-phd/positive-people-live-long_b_774648.html So I guess you have to ask yourself, are you a positive or negative person?

I’m not going to be another sob story even though things are tough right now. But aren’t they tough for ALL of us??? I lost my job 4 months ago when they downsized. After I got like 10 rejections the last few weeks it’s been harder and harder to shake off. That was until I came home and my wife did this amazing thing for me.

She took motivational quotes she found on google images, pinterest and anywhere else she could find some and printed them all out. She then taped them ALL OVER THE HOUSE. I do mean ALL over too!

I went to go get a pair of socks, there was a motivational quote in the drawer. I would go into the bathroom to shave there was another motivational quote stuck to the mirror. I would grab a coffee mug out of the cabinet and a quote was taped to the door. They made me smile and they made me feel better and stronger somehow. I am still finding new ones a week later.

It got me thinking that words ARE powerful and I wanted to share this. Each time I see them they make me want to push myself when motivation is a struggle. I am going to share one that my wife found and I encourage you to share some too. All she did was google the words motivational quote under images and tons came up. Share your favorites, print them and let’s stay positive friends. This is the time to kick some ass, band together and stay strong.

Let’s help get some GREAT quotes posted up here for those who are feeling down!

Lake Forest College was an excellent work environment, having end users frustrated with technology is a common occurrence. To be able to approach the problem with empathy and in some cases a little humor is a key element in any type of customer service. There were some difficult situations where professionalism and understanding failed to get the best end result, but to remember any particular situation where that was the case would be difficult, keeping a cool head and understanding the pressure your co-worker or customer is under is more a part of the job than fixing the issue. So if the situation was dramatic I walked a mile in someone else's shoes and gained the trust that they weren't just a number to me, then I would go home and sock the pillow on my own time.
