Positive thinking: Do YOU think that it can make your life better? Make you happier?


I'm interested to know how you feel about positive thinking. I know some people think it works for a happier and healthier life while other people don't. I am a fan of positive thinking, but I want to know how my fellow hubbers feel about it.

    I agree Christin. We are in control of our own happiness and when we choose to focus on the negative side of life how can we expect to experience positive things? That has been my personal experience as well. :)

    Exactly my point! Positive thinking isn't a magical bullet. Then again, negative thinking doesn't bring confer any advantage to our life. Positive thinking isn't miraculous, but it helps to focus our minds on solutions rather than problems.

    Great way to look at it! Instead of dreading future issues, be prepred to handle them.

    It does not sound crazy to me, at all. The power of prayer is amazing. I think that prayer helps us to focus on the positive because in a way we 'let go and let god' with our problems and then start to focus on solutions.

    I agree. I have removed some negative people from my life because they were consistently negative about everything. Having positive people around you in life is a blessing.

    There is a common belief that a optimist never experienced suffering in his life! Everyone experiences suffering at some point in their lives. This comes from someone who spent years feeling miserable on account of having hypochondria.

    I'm not mentioning people suffering from such mental conditions. I have all the respect for them. I'm talking about people free from mental illness, who share a negative view of life and of mankind.
