14 Quotes That Teach You The Power of Positive Thinking

the power of positive thinking

Positive Thinking has been vouched for and advocated for, by so many people, that it has started to seem like a cliche. There is a reason why everyone swears by the power and benefits of positive thinking. Even numerous scientific studies have proved its correlation with success.

Today, we will be looking at a few quotes that show how the way you think can do wonders for you. While we are at it, let’s also talk about why these quotes inspire people.  

“You can, you should, and if you’re brave enough to start, you will.”


– Stephen King, (Author)

The only thing that stops you from starting a new venture is usually your own mind. When you strip down all the layers of reasons, you have built around not doing it, the naked reality of it is that your mind is not fully ready to take it head-on.

You are scared of failure, of the difficulty of the new project, of the n number of things that might go wrong. Which is why, you have to start believing in yourself because you can, you should, and when you learn to fight the fears, you will.

“The only place where your dreams become impossible is in your own thinking.”


– Robert H Schuller, (Televangelist, Pastor, Author)

If the most difficulty you are facing about something is in your head, then you need to rethink your approach. If something seems impossible before you even begin, then you need to spend less time thinking about it, and more time trying to find out how to actually achieve it.

“Impossible is just an opinion, don’t buy it.”


– Robin Sharma, (Author)

You have to stop thinking that something is impossible because it has a difficult path. Once you make the impossible in your mind possible, half of the battle is won.

“We become what we think about.”


– Earl Nightingale, (Radio Speaker, Author)

This has a semblance to “The Law of Attraction.” Like Rhonda Byrne wrote in her famous book “The Secret,”

“Your thoughts become things.”

“Remember that your thoughts are the primary cause to everything.”

“Every thought of yours is a real thing – a force.”

“You are the one who calls the law of attraction into action, and you do it through your thoughts.”

To become something, to achieve something, you need to truly believe in it. When there is no doubt in your mind about how it belongs to you, you will find out ways to conquer what it is that you truly want.

“Beliefs that are good promote your potential and enhance your unique special qualities.”


– Deborah Day, (Author)

Like I said earlier, to achieve something you need to truly believe in it. I can’t advocate it enough. Everything begins with a belief. A belief that it will succeed, a belief that it can change the world, a belief that you can do something. A belief is all it takes to get the ball rolling. Trust yourself and your abilities, the rest will follow.

“Cultivate an optimistic mind, use your imagination, always consider alternatives, and dare to believe that you can make possible what others think is impossible.”


– Rodolfo Costa, (Author)

Now that you believe in yourself, the next step is to not let pessimism plague your mind. Keep an optimistic approach to the task and its process. Considering alternatives doesn’t mean that you don’t trust yourself enough, it means you are smart enough to have another plan ready before you even have to hit a huge roadblock.

“The greatest discovery of all time is that a person can change his future by merely changing his attitude.”


– Oprah Winfrey, (Talk show host, Philanthropist, Author)

“An attitude of positive expectation is the mark of the superior personality.”


– Brian Tracy, (Author, Speaker)

“In order to carry a positive action we must develop here a positive vision.”


– Dalai Lama, (Monk, Spiritual Leader)

When you go about achieving something, the important thing is to carry a positive attitude throughout. You cannot begin with a positive thought process and then go back to your old ways. The change needs to come from within, and stay substantial throughout.

Your attitude not only dictates your work, but it also dictates the sort of days you have. You must have heard why you need to start your day with gratitude, it is because it helps you start the day on a positive note.

When you surround yourself with positive people, positive energy, and a positive mind; it becomes difficult for obstacles to dim your resolve.

“When you are joyful, when you say yes to life and have fun and project positivity all around you, you become a sun in the center of every constellation, and people want to be near you.”


– Shannon L. Alder, (Author)

Why Do Animals Make Better Friends Than Humans?

Published

Animals are the pure, raw souls that need little to be genuinely happy. In a world continually chasing after materialistic bliss and happiness, your furry friends find fulfillment in a bit of touch, a bit of affection, and a dollop of kindness. 

There are no layers or hidden agendas, it’s just a beautiful bond of simplicity, or as popularly known as love. Somehow, for this generation, the meaning of the word love has been lost in translation. We are always after something, something better, something newer. 

Our fast-paced approach has derailed basic human emotions and its purity. Friendships for many people is less of a bond, and more of an unsigned “give and take” policy. However, if you look into your dog’s crystal-clear eyes, nothing but love and deep affection reflect back.

That’s the beauty of building relations with animals; they want nothing but some warmth and your time. It’s a sense of fulfillment that makes you believe that being you is enough, along with an odd satisfying sense of acceptance when your four-legged buddy comes running up like there is no tomorrow.

Like a true friend, they listen to you and give you comfort in the most unprecedented ways. We may not share the same language, but some words can be understood even when unspoken. 

We all look for hope and belief to be alive. Sometimes, it just needs a kind pair of eyes to stare at you with honest attention, without any judgment, to find that hope. I also believe honesty is a magically powerful language found in abundance in our furry friends.

But this is not only about pets; all animals in this world have something profound to offer. Their sense of affection, love, and gratitude is like a lighthouse in a deep dark sea. 

All around the globe, you can find various instances of animals and their bonds with fellow humans developing in unimaginable ways, simply because of their beautiful, unspoiled souls. They are more precious than us, I think, by being able to portray love in the most natural and pure way. 

If you have found it, always hold on to this feeling, because it is fulfilling and heart-touching to witness true love in their eyes, and eyes are thought to be the window of souls. At the end of the day, we are lucky to share this world with them, because they truly teach us how to be loved in this crazy, big world. 

So try to do your part to save them and provide for them, because your act of kindness can go a long way!

The Impact of Deep Melody

Published

melody

Music is a form of art that has the power to touch your soul. Through this universal language, countless emotions have been depicted over the ages. The human mind grasps music differently under different circumstances. Even the same tune can be interpreted variedly from person to person. 

From Beethoven to Bach, Mozart to Yo Yo Ma, Einaudi to Mischka, the depth of soulful music is beyond the power of perception. The music created by these artists resonates deep within our souls through every note, every beat. 

If you close your eyes and listen to Yo Yo Ma’s rendition of the Prelude, irrespective of your mood, you will get absorbed into a moment of tranquil hard to describe in words. Or take, for example, Einaudi’s composition called “Waterways,” the sense of a pristine aura that lasts long after he finishes the piece, is simply beautiful.

Every note, chord, and tune affects your brain in a way you can’t even imagine. So here, we will try to explore some of the powers of music and the impacts of deep melodies.

Memory 

Since the 20th century numerous studies have been conducted to research the power of music over memory functioning of the human brain. Certain music can take your mind back decades in an instant. 

In a study conducted with dementia patients, it was found that music improves general well being, mood, orientation, and episodic memory recalls. It was shown to have an overall positive effect on life.

Stress Relief

Music can lower the cortisol levels in your body and can alleviate the symptoms of stress. 

According to the American Psychological Society, “In a trial conducted by University of Alberta, with 42 children aged between 3-11, it was found that while getting an IV inserted, patients who listened to relaxing music reported significantly less pain, and some demonstrated significantly less distress, compared with patients who did not listen to music.”

Alleviation of Pain 

Martin Luther King had famously said, “My heart, which is so full to overflowing, has often been solaced and refreshed by music when sick and weary.”

This statement, in fact, is quite true to an extent, as researchers now believe that listening to music triggers the release of opioids in our body. The same chemical comes into action when the body is in pain, acting as a natural antidote.  

Seizures

Christine Charyton, of the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, said that “Persons with epilepsy synchronize before a seizure. By listening to music, many patients reported that they felt relaxed.” 

Concluding Words

Music has the power to heal. It reaches the deepest corners of our soul and affects us in unprecedented ways. However, the depth of melody is without any boundaries of prefixed notes and scales. It is an eternal journey of understanding and perception beyond our senses.

“Music… will help dissolve your perplexities and purify your character and sensibilities, and in time of care and sorrow, will keep a fountain of joy alive in you.” ― Dietrich Bonhoeffer
