The power of positive thinking.

Are you a believer? I know I am, I have done a lot of positive thinking in my life and I'm a pretty happy guy.

I, I think although maybe not so happy, but I can't compare with others.

So anyway, one of the most famous quotes I ever heard about positive thinking came from Henry Ford.

He said something like if you believe you can or if you believe you can't, you are right? And that sort of speaks to positive thinking as well as negative thinking.

He's saying that that thinking makes you right.

It will come to be if you believe you can do something, you can do it.

But if you believe you can't do it, then you cannot do it.

Your thinking controls your ability.

And if you think about positive outcomes, you have a much better chance of getting positive outcomes.

I'm always trying to think of positive outcomes.

When I joined one of the schools, I worked at, I had the image of making hands on science activities because I was teaching science.

Now, I didn't actually know what the activities were.

I didn't have a concrete plan I just had an image of myself doing something with hands and materials with the Children.

And they were learning and not only learning but enjoying their learning.

They were having fun while they learned.

It wasn't an overnight success.

But I found a tremendous amount of success in that situation where we had very limited materials.

And since then I've become a true believer in the power of positive thinking.

I use it today in my day to day life and work.

How about you? Do you actually do positive thinking? I set aside time every day almost to do my positive thinking.

Do you do that? And what have you, you heard about positive thinking? Some people say it's, it's just superstition.

Hm.

I wonder.
