Why Should you be Positive? The physical world as we know it is always changing. You are either moving towards a goal or if you don’t have any goals you are not. If you don’t have any goals, life around you is changing but you are not. Without goals you are probably stagnant and living a mediocre life. Having Positive Goals creates a positive, productive life. It gives you a sense of purpose.

The individual who can recognize that people around them are negative has a major advantage. This individual if he can take hold of his own mind and maintain a positive attitude can achieve whatever he wants in life.
Law of Attraction Science now confirms that the Law of Attraction is probably real. It is in the simple belief that “like attracts like”. If you believe positive thoughts, you will get positive results. If you believe negative results you will get negative results. There is tremendous power in what you believe.

This is your truth about yourself.

We learned from them how to be, act and think. We conformed to be accepted and loved. Where you are today is probably not your fault. We were never taught about the Law of Attraction and why you should strive for positive self improvement.
Love and Fear There are basically two emotions that rule the universe, Love and fear. You are always acting on either one. Obviously Love is positive and fear is negative. Whether you know it or not, given any circumstance in life, you will either react out of love or fear based on what you believe about yourself or the circumstance.
Responsibility People can only teach you what they are. Based on this knowledge you cannot blame your parents, relatives or teachers for the negativity they have taught you. Realize these truths. Forgive them; they only know what they know. Take responsibility for your life! You are here now! The past is dead! Give yourself all the credit you deserve. True power is in the knowing that you can change.

Goals The problem with most people is that we’ve never taken the time to set goals. We are not taught the importance of setting goals. Parents, teachers and relatives are not taught to set goals. They can only teach us what they know. It’s a proven fact, people that set goals usually achieve them. They give you a direction, a course of action. Study after study, have proven that the human mind strives for a goal once it is thought of continuously.

To see tangible results you must do something to move you to your goals. Action steps produce results, either positive or negative. Ultimately, taking action will get you the results you want.

Habits We are all creatures of habit. We all have our comfort zones, daily habits that have become routine. We do these without much thought. We do these on auto-pilot. These habits can either be good habits, or bad habits. Obviously, good habits will produce good results and bad habits will lead to bad results. We all have bad habits that we would like to get rid of.

Roadblocks Along the Way. Recognize that you will face adversity along the way to accomplishing your goals. Some roadblocks are necessary for your own learning. Some are there to place you on the correct course. We all know Thomas Edison had 10,000 failures before he created the light bulb. He said he knew 10,000 ways how not to create a light bulb. Take these failures in stride. Never Quit! The key is to keep striving and keep taking the steps towards your goal.
Letting the Universe Work for You. One of the keys is not to get in your own way and let the forces of the universe work in your favor.

Be grateful for what you have now and also for the attainment of your goals. This is a state of being which brings you more of what you are. What you are is what you will have. Let the universe work it’s magic on you. Allow yourself to be its beneficiary.

If we can become aware of our negative thoughts, we can replace them with positive thoughts. which will create our positive feelings and good habits Being in the present is the only life you have and where life is created. The only thing that really matters is what you are doing and thinking at this moment.

Sharing and Serving Others Being genuine, helping and sharing with others empowers us as human beings. The only way to reach this level is to truly have the other person’s best interests at heart. The person who focuses entirely on other persons needs, will always have his own needs fulfilled. You can only become prosperous by serving others. Treat people as you wish to be treated and you will be rewarded.
Giving it all away. Being Selfless. We are taught wrongly early on in life that the goal is to accumulate. Winning is all about the bigger houses, bigger cars. What hogwash. . . In a life where you enter without possessions and leave without possessions, it’s all about the giving, not the getting. It’s about being selfless. . . Once you’ve reached a level where you can give of yourself without fear. You are a real success!
The Ultimate Goal, Being Happy! We all want to be happy, that’s the ultimate goal. This can only be achieved by each individual’s concept of what happiness is to them. Everyone is different and we are all unique. Some people are happy washing the dishes. Some people want to own the restaurant. Take the time to know yourself.
