Positive Thinking

blazintallmansm“It requires strength of character to make the transition to a positive thinker. It isn’t easy”

Dr. Norman Vincent Peale shared a number of wonderful and insightful thoughts with Gerhard Gschwandtner in his article Unlock the Power of Positive for Selling Power. “I figure that I am the sovereign judge of any thoughts that goes through my mind. Remember the old saying, ‘You can’t stop the birds from flying over your head, but you can keep them from building a nest in your hair.’ If a negative thought comes to your mind, you sit as judge with sovereign power over that thought, and you can cast it out. By practicing positive thinking for as long as I have – being basically negative – I have developed the ability to throw out the negative thought quickly…

A problem is a concentrated opportunity…The more problems you have, the more alive you are. Every problem contains the seeds of its own solution. I often say, when the Lord wants to give you the greatest value in the world, he doesn’t wrap it in a sophisticated package and hand it to you on a silver platter. He is too subtle, too adroit for that. He takes this value and buries it at the heart of a big, tough problem. How he must watch with delight when you’ve got what it takes to break that problem apart and find at its heart what the Bible calls ‘the pearl of the great price.’

…To me, positive thinkers are rugged souls who see every difficulty. But they are not defeated by difficulties because they know that they have within their own mind the ability to understand, define, make judgements, and arrive at the right decisions. In addition, they have what it takes to overcome, live with, or reduce the problem. In a sense, they are realists in that they see everything straight but are never overawed by difficulty.
