These are wonderful inspiring quotes KoffeeKlatch Gals, some of which I haven't heard. Thank you.


Vitamins-and-Health-Facts.com 5 years ago

I was in a workshop and I just learned something about this...particularly the power of positive thinking and weight loss.

The instructor mentioned that the brain does not recognize words like "will not" but does recognize the action. Saying that "I will not eat sweets" is not effective because the brain recognizes the "eat sweets part" but not the "I will not" part. So in essence we turn our brain and will power against each other. Instead we should put things in a more positive perspective such as "I will eat fruits and vegetables" or "I love to eat fruits and vegetables." This way the brain recognizes the "eat fruits and vegetables" part.

It makes sense once you hear someone explain it that way.

KoffeeKlatch Gals 5 years ago from Sunny Florida Author

Vitamins-and-Vegetable-Facts, it makes perfect sense. It goes along with 'Use a positive statement every day'. When you say "I wil not" or Or am not going to" your brain seems to inturrupt it as a more negative statement. Thanks for the comment.

I try to follow many of these mottos, maxims or whatever they are. My favorite is the one by Albert Einstein - "miracles" yeah! It's definitely a miracle that we're all here, but I'm not saying that because I believe in God. Anyway, all negative folks should read this hub. Later!


KoffeeKlatch Gals profile image

KoffeeKlatch Gals 5 years ago from Sunny Florida Author

Thanks Kosmo. I have to agree being positive is important. Negativity only brings you and all you come in contact down. It makes it had to achieve anything.

Great round-up of positivity! I'm going to add a link to this on my blog "From Dazed to Dazzling: My Steps to Living a More Positive, Bold, Worthwhile, and Beautiful Life"....Also...have you heard of OperationBeautiful.com...they are all about leaving positive notes in public places so that whoever finds it can have a little positive moment and smile. Great hub and of course...thank you! You've made me smile.
