      I was just in a conversation with someone who’s life is completely consumed by negative thinking. He has been this way for so long do you think it’s even possible to change his way of thinking? I do, but I believe that person has to have the desire to want to change. This person was speaking negatively about situations that hadn’t even happened yet.

      I personally believe that positive thinking is more than just a frame of mind though. I look at positive thinking in terms of phases:

1.) Admit that you aren’t thinking positive and want to change those thoughts.

2.) Feed your mind with positive “things”

    a.) Books- Try to read self help books and biography of successful will encourage you to   change yourself for better life.

    b.) Internet web sites and articles-- Read articles and watch videos that will help you to grow your personal and professional life

     c.) Environments-- Try to be in positive environment as much as possible


3.) Change your surroundings, yes this can even include family members and friends.

4.) Find people that encourage you and make you feel more positive.

5.) Learn to sense your negative thinking and stop it in its tracks. Change those negative thoughts into positive ones.

6.) Pray and read God’s word to see all of the amazing things he has promised us and believe in them!

      Two years ago I suffered low grade chronic fatigue syndrome symptoms. So energy is now a precious commodity to me. Health issues are one thing, but there are some other energy zappers and power parasites we can look at.
   Have you ever noticed, that different tasks require different types of energy? Some things don’t require much energy at all, like watching t.v. At The other end of the scale, are things that require more energy or focus, such as book work or phoning for me.
   Also have you ever noticed that it’s impossible to be depressed when you have good energy! Energy is a fragile thing some days.

“Whether we find pleasure in our work or whether we find it a bore, depends entirely upon our mental attitude towards it, not upon the task itself.” 
       Your motivation depends, in large part, on whether you look upon your activity as a source of enjoyment or just a source of drudgery.

       The labels we put on activity seem to have something to do with this. The word “work” stimulates an unpleasant response. Then we listen to the word “hard” in front of it and it becomes even more unpleasant. “Hard work” seems to imply there is something distasteful about human effort applied over an extended time to an activity for which there is compensation rendered.

     Medical experts say that the reason people become tired is not that they do too much-but rather because they do too little. Dr. James Montague said he never knew a person who suffered from overwork. There were many, however, who suffered from too much ambition and not enough action. Dr. Charles Mayo found much the same thing. “I have never known a person who died from overwork but there were many who died from doubt,” he said.
       But the greatest benefit you derive from doing just a little more than you have to is that, for some strange reason, you just feel better. No one seems to know why. But it is a fact that on those days that you get an early start and fill your day with a busy activity you end up feeling good about it.

    Here are some important factors that affect your motivation your ability to work.

 1. You will work for rewards:: primarily money.

 2. You will work for a leader...a person.

 3. You will work for something in which you believe, a cause, an activity that satisfies your purpose in living.

 4. You will work for things that satisfy you psychologically: recognition, security, friendship, fulfillment etc.

       All of them involve your attitude. You need money to buy the necessities of life. But beyond that point it is your attitude about how much more you want that determines the degree to which money will motivate you.
      It is your attitude about your boss as a leader that will determine if the boss can affect your motivation; no one is a perfect leader. You can find fault with the best if that is what you are looking for.
     Believing in what you do is the source of the strongest work motivation there is. Your attitude towards your work determines if you can believe in it. This is the “secret of motivation”--having the ability to believe in what you are doing. Some call it “cause” motivation. It is the ability to find cause and purpose in what you are doing.
     You will work for a reward. You will work harder for a leader or for recognition, security, or other psychological satisfaction (psychic rewards). But you will work hardest for a cause, a purpose, something in which you can believe.
     In fact, if you can believe in what you are doing, this type of motivation will tend to eliminate the effect of the unpleasant factors of work such as physical discomfort, poor working environment, people problems, etc. People have been known to endure almost unbearable physical hardships (even risking their lives) to pursue an activity in which they can believe.

    So the secret of the motivated person is the ability to BELIEVE in a job, a purpose, a goal. There is nothing one cannot achieve if one has the ability to believe. 
    Psychologists have discovered that people will work for money, but they will work harder for a leader or psychic satisfaction, but they work hardest for something in which they can BELIEVE. 


      So, to become motivated in the way you spend your day, learn to believe in the activities in which you engage. If you are a salesperson believe in your company, your product, your job. If you are a teacher believe in the students you are helping, the purpose and worthiness of your work If you are a student believe in yourself and the investment of time you are making in your education.     Perhaps when you spend your time in this fashion you are fulfilling a bigger purpose for your life.

As Thomas Carlyle wrote: “What is the use of health, or of life, if not to do some work therewith?”

"Calm mind brings inner strength and self-confidence, so that's very important for good health. "                       Dalai Lama
       Our body is the servant of our mind. It obeys the operations of the mind, whether they be intentionally chosen or automatically expressed. At the bidding of unlawful thoughts the body sinks rapidly into disease and decay; at the command of glad and beautiful thoughts it becomes clothed with youthfulness and beauty.

      Disease and health, like circumstances, are rooted in thought. Sickly thoughts will express themselves through a sickly body. Thoughts of fear have been known to kill a person as speedily as a bullet, and they are continually killing thousands of people just as surely though less rapidly. The people who live in fear of disease are the people who get it. Anxiety quickly demoralizes the whole body, and lays it open to the entrance of disease; whole impure thoughts, even if not physically indulged, will soon shatter the nervous system.


     Strong, pure, and happy thoughts build up the body in vigor and grace. The body is a delicate instrument, which responds readily to the thoughts by which it is impressed, and habits of thought will produce their own effects, good or bad, upon the body.

      So if you want to protect your body, guard your mind. If you want to renew your body, beautify your mind. Thoughts of  anger, envy, disappointment, and despondency rob the body of its health and grace. A sour face does not come by chance; it is made by sour thoughts.

     There is no physician like cheerful thought for dissipating the ills of the body; there is no comforter to compare with goodwill for dispersing the shadows of grief and sorrow. To live continually in thoughts of ill-will, cynicism, suspicion, and envy, is to be confined in a self-made prison-hole. But to think well of all, to be cheerful with all, to patiently learn to find the good in all such unselfish thoughts are the very portals of heaven  and to dwell day by day in thoughts of peace toward every creature will bring abounding peace to their possessor.
