If you are unhappy with your life and the state of the world, the best place to start changing things is within yourself. Sometimes your evolution involves changing your behaviors and habits, but more often the essential changes that need to be made are merely with your own attitudes. Your attitudes lie at the heart of any possibility for changing your life. Your attitudes are literally seeds for the growing of your future self. Your attitudes contain your future. Attitudes are like the DNA of your future life — they are the blueprints for assembling the person you will become.

"The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes." — William James

If your attitudes are good, then your world will be better. Difficulties are more likely to recede and diminish with a favorable and hopeful attitude. But even if your adversity persists, you will certainly be carried more gently through the tumult by calm and constructive attitudes. Look in your disappointments for the resolve to transform your experiences into solutions. Your attitudes are slowly shaping you at all times and calling your deepest truths to the surface of your reality.

Positive attitudes are concerned with possibilities, whereas negative attitudes are obsessed with focussing on the unlikely. Where negative attitudes repel opportunities, positive attitudes open possibilities. Bias can work for or against you. Positive attitudes qualify you for positive experiences. Hopefully and devoutly focus on your greater possibilities. Hopeful thoughts needn't be limitless in scope. Any good is good enough. Positive thinking needn't be thought of as selfish or exclusively serving the self. When you live positively it is impossible to not also be living for something greater than yourself, because when you transform yourself, your change impacts the lives of many other people for the rest of your life.

Changing yourself changes everything. Your attitudes reflect back your exact possibilities. Every experience is seen through your mind's eye, so when you change your mind you change your entire world. There is no such thing as a non-subjective world to a subjective mind. Opportunity will only meet you in the domain of your chosen attitude. You will always receive what your attitudes insist of your worthiness. To alter the universe, alter your thoughts, because the only universe you will ever know is in your mind. This is why changing your mind and your attitude can move you into what seems like another dimension. Paths materialize exposing a hidden world that was there all along. Your future begins with your next thought. A more beautiful world is just one thought away, but when that thought fades, hope fades with it. A more beautiful world becomes more visible and permanent with each reaffirming thought. Hold the vision of that beautiful world for yourself first. Think positively and lovingly about yourself. Look for the beauty you seek first within yourself. Once you find your positive vision, then share the victory of your loving attitudes with everyone you meet, through your calm and generous successes.

I try not to over-think - and to greet my own thoughts knowing that I am worthy and capable. Often, when I allow a creative thought to remain just a thought (and not progress to an action), negativity begins to attack as though the creative thought were a virus or an impurity lodged in a pore. Negative thoughts begin to surround the positive thought, breaking it down and discarding it as an unwelcome intruder. I try to think consciously and conscientiously, reminding myself that negativity is the real intruder.

I am a firm believer that we attract what we think and eventually we become what we think, and what we become we attract!!!!

Not enough time in the day, to explain this one! Let's just say, I am mostly positive and I believe as long as you keep that frame of mind, you can make it through anything! :)

I have battled with logic vs negativity. Major decisions in life require controlling the heart and conscience desires to let logic make the best overall outcome for myself and those I love. Often the positive results can create an inner battle of guilt and convince others I am a negative person as I work through an issue. I have learned that positive actions and attitudes are the outcome of well thought out and logical decisions. I believe guilt is often confused with negativity. I often use the old Ben Franklin close when setting goals or making major decisions. I then know I am heading in a positive direction.

I'm a believer. To practice this belief takes practice ;) lots of it. The suffering that humans allow and instigate will however put me instantly into a negative angry frame of mind. Still have to work on that.

So true. Frustrating though when others don't change around you. Even when they should.

yeah that all sounds good but I feel like a freakin chameleon I've changed myself so many times... how about we don't expect the good things in life to change and instead put the responsibility back on the wrong... now that's positive thinking! I can categorically attest that all my changing has not changed the f#@ked up world we live in, infact I would take responsibility for having a hand in making it worse by not taking those truelly responsible to task... GET REAL! now THAT'S POSITIVE THINKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
