stockvault-happy-family124701There is power in positive thinking! I have heard this time and time again. In the past, I have also had to train my thoughts to be more positive. I can remember going through some very tough times and everything around me being negative. I also remember how I had to think positive even though my surroundings made it hard for me to believe that there was anything good around the corner.

The power of positive thinking is amazing! When you can see great things for yourself no matter what your life looks like that is how positive thinking starts. There are many people out here who have lots of problems, but they stay positive and that is what helps to motivate them. Any situation can be changed if you believe it can be!

I recently met a person who sees something positive in every situation. No matter what happens, they live on the "sunny side of the street." This person lost so many important things in their life, but through it all, they continue to stay positive.

This person also gives advice to others about positive thinking. How they maintain such positive thoughts, astounds me.

My journey is all about staying positive. I speak positive words over my life and I think positive thoughts throughout my day. No matter what happens, there is something positive in the midst of it all. Think about it this way, have you ever wanted something so bad and when the time came you still didn't receive it? Maybe that thing wasn't for you. I know it's hard to think like that when you really want something, but stay positive through it all and you may be amazed with where your positive thoughts take you! When you can see something positive when there is so much negativity, you have a gift! So continue to nourish your gift of positive thinking!

And as always, stay focused, stay determined, and keep striving for greatness.
