• The Power of Positive Thinking, © Diana Demar

    Have you ever found yourself stuck in the middle of traffic, already late for work – just waiting on your turn to squeeze into the exit lane? Just when you find your perfect chance some jerk pulls out from nowhere and cuts you off! “How dare that so-in-so cut ME off!” you think to yourself steaming. “Sheesh! What an idiot!”

    Before you know it, your blood pressure is sky high . . . which gives you a headache . . . your headache makes it hard to complete your work . . . your boss gets crabby because he needed those papers on his desk Monday . . . so – you have to stay late at the office again . . .

    Can you see the vicious cycle of how one reaction, from your ego, to an external event can affect your whole day?

    While we cannot change the circumstances around us, we can change the thoughts within us. In every situation there is a choice to make the decision that’s best for you, to react positively to a negative situation, aka the Principle of the Opposite Action©, and to find the good in the seemingly horrible.

    Think for a moment. . . what if you got cut off in morning traffic because you needed to get someplace slower. What if something really amazing was going to happen as a result of running a little bit behind? Like running into an old friend, buying the lucky ticket in the office raffle or meeting the love of your life in the most unexpected of places.

    When the so called “bad things” happen, don’t get all bent out of shape. Reinforce the positive in a negative situation. Choose to live a more peaceful life full of joy, wealth, happiness and expecting good things to follow. When you do, you will find that the actions that follow your reactions will take your breath away.
