“There seems to be a million different self-help, self-improvement, and life-enhancement books and programs out there; and oftentimes, none of them seem to work. As long as people have talked about the power of positive thinking, there have been people who have said, “Bah-humbug! This doesn’t work!” Have you ever wondered what makes a cynical scrooge an expert on positive thinking?
There are two components to making your thoughts really count. First, there is what you think; this is your prayer, or the plan you are “trying” to make work. Remember; if you’re trying too hard, you are not relaxed. The other component is HOW you think, or more specifically, how your thinking is polarized – positively, or negatively. If your perspective is negative, the only way the Universe can respond is to bring you that which you greatly fear.
If you can’t seem to think positively, release the negative thought patterns by putting your attention on serving and blessing others. When you begin giving from the heart, you will begin thinking with the heart; when you learn to think with the heart, you will soon learn to believe with your heart and your life will unfold for you “as you believeth in your heart.” When you can’t seem to make things work, let them be.”
