A Chinese by Descent
An Australian by Consent
When you wake up each morning
Feeling bright & breezy
The day ahead will be light & easy.
If you wake & say
It’s one of those days
Then in bed you might as well stay.
Be careful of what you think or say
As you’ve got to feel right
In order to give you that fight.
Your mind can only hold one thought at a time, and is most susceptible to negative thought. So why not fail it with positive thought? To illustrate this point practically, we can play a game on a colleague in the office by suggesting variuosly he’s not well. Before long . . . he really begins to feel unwell. This is autosuggestion.
Our mind is constantly being bombarded by negative thoughts. There is no escaping.In tough economic times, the tendency is for people to react negatively. The biggest problem we have is not the problem itself, but our attitude towards it. Negative thinking pervades through all levels of the society – by word of mouth, by conversations with friends or strangers, by television & other news media. Negative thinking is like disease or cancer, and once the country is infected with it, it consumes the mind, the heart & the soul & the emotional support system is inevitably sapped or eroded away.
People at this point in time need more than just help. They need hope & where would they find it?
There are a number of things you can do to fortify your mind with positive thinking – associate yourself with positive minded people, read positive books, sing positive songs, meditation & just avoid all negative aspect aspect of things & environment.
Dr Norman Vincent Peale, the author of the best seller “The Power Thinking” says the following worthy of note:
Someone once said”great people are ordinary people with extraordinary amounts of determination.” In like manner, heroes are ordinary men who perform extraordinary things, Yes, you’ll need that extra strength & tenacity to see you attain great heights. It is your ability to survive tough economic times that will ensure your enjoying the good times.
“Tough times never last, but tough people do” according to Dr. Robert Schuller (September 16, 1926 – April 2, 2015) the founding pastor of the wonderful Crystal Cathedral.
The wind blows, storm strikes
Dark clouds roll by
Somehow their shape change
And once more it’s sunny & bright again.
