Positive thinking is only one of the many things that will have to become a habit to live a wonderful life. Creating you, the way you want you to be and living the life you want is not easy. So it will not work for most people because all of the other steps like disciplines and skills needed, have been left out of your equation.
You see, some circumstances are beyond repair. A person has to be self aware, not just a positive thinker. So awareness and choice, are part of the mixture on events and final results of/and for your life.
Truth and Honesty:
Most people don't even realize that Truth and honesty aren't even the same thing. Would it be a revelation to find out that you can tell the truth, while not being honest or to be honest while not speaking the truth? Truth is defined as the present state of a matter or reality, that is, truth is fact. On the other hand, honesty can not only mean speaking the truth, but also being true to your emotions, and feelings.
That happens to be where the "positivity" fails in most people. Not only are they NOT being true to themselves, but they are being very deceiving and well.... dishonest to others surrounding them.
Positive thinking alone is unlikely to change much of anything in this physical world. You can sit there and hope, pray, project, imagine, fantasize, visualize, make up great affirmations and just about any other kind of positive thinking idea you can imagine, and not much will change - at least not without actually getting involved, without taking some form of action towards what you want more of in your life.
Please don't think I'm not a positive person, I am! Look.. I took the number one poll years ago that tells you the top 5 qualities you strongly posses out of 26:
Learner, Individualization, Woo, Positivity, Intellection
See? I think every single one of those traits treat me well, including positivity. I just happen to think that it all forms a wondrous creation together. *looks around her* Yes.. I have amazing things, friends and family surrounding me. I didn't get all of that from treating them negatively .
Love love love A New Moo!
