The power of positive thinking
It is something you can practice today, even if you don’t believe it yet.
Everyone has some level of negativity inside them, but not everyone knows this.
Inside each person there’s an endless stream of thoughts that play over and over in their minds. Many times these thoughts are negative; however, sometimes those thoughts are positive.
It all depends on the individual. You have to fill your mind with positive things to be happy and do successful what you want.
That doesn’t mean you have to look for good experiences or to smile at every moment. But why not focus more on the positive than the negative?
If you feel like there is too much negativity in your life, then make a goal to spend time focusing on the positive aspects of life.
Do so through media (entertainment) choose quality instead of quantity. Measure progress, not success.
These will help you shift your mindset from internal positivity to external negativity. Then once you get rid of the negativity, you’ll find yourself filled with inner happiness.
The power of forgiveness
More than ever before, we need to learn how to forgive those who have wronged us.
Forgiveness is not easy. But if you are eager to let bygones be bygones, there’s a reason for that.
Studies show that people who can master the art of forgiveness report more happiness in their lives and achieve better stress levels.
Here are some other reasons why we should all work on being less angry and resentful.
The power of faith
What is it that compels you to get out of bed in the morning?
Why do you keep going even when you don’t have any energy left?
It’s not because you have high hopes for the day – but because you have a higher purpose.
You have a belief that something greater than yourself is driving you.
This can be your religion, or some bigger meaning to life such as love or happiness.
Something within you just wants to help others, give back, or simply feel better about things.
These are all reasons why you should find energy in the mornings. Let’s look at how to identify your passion and use this time to rev up your engine.
In order to achieve anything significant in your career or personal life, you need to develop a relationship with this force called trust.
When you invest your trust in someone, they guarantee its success. No one has ever been failed by their trusted.
What’s more, we will always choose our habits from the part of us that trusts ourselves.
So, how can you start building trust inside you? It starts with believing in yourself and what you want to accomplish.
Make a goal that is related to something you want to change in your life, and then make a list of actions you plan to take to impact that change.

The power of giving
It’s easy to take your good health for granted. After all, you can not feel sick or have symptoms like pain or fatigue if you do not have any disease. However, it is important to recognize that these are also called symptoms of illness.
If you suffer from chronic illnesses such as cancer or cystic fibrosis, feeling ill or unwell can be difficult. But everyone feels tired sometimes, especially when they are busy or exercising. Now there are many types of research showing how much happiness we get by helping others.
It starts with giving money to charity or helping people in need, then moving onto volunteering and finally doing volunteer work. All these things make us happy, but most of all giving money away helps. Then going out and buying nice things for other people makes us happiest because we love them.
Next time you want to fix yourself a meal or go shopping, don’t forget to think about who could use something like that more than you could. Think about which power you might have to change someone’s life- maybe yours too!
The power of a good diet
Does your idea of heaven involve bacon-wrapped shrimp or roasted brussels sprouts, maybe it’s time to come down from the food dream high)? Or perhaps you think having enough money to buy whatever you want would make you happy, but that’s an unrealistic goal.
Fact is, we all have certain inalienable rights, among them life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And now science has shown that one of the most important ways to be happy is by being healthy.
A healthy body equals a healthy mind. Good nutrition (the way we eat) is very linked with the overall health of our bodies and this can also lead to increased longevity, better quality of sleep, lower risk of cardiovascular disease, fewer mental illnesses, less reliance on medication for non-existent medical conditions and more energy.
Getting back to that ideal state of health means switching out bad habits for good ones. It means understanding which foods are necessary and which are detrimental. It takes effort and commitment; something many people don’t seem to care about these days.
The power of networking
Networking is an investment that will pay off in dividends for years to come. People build networks for many reasons: to advance their careers, to make friends, to learn new skills, or to start clubs and activities.
Networking helps you get out there and promote your work, so it can be difficult to find time to do it.
But done right, networking is one of the most effective tools at your disposal. And no matter what type of worker you are, building connections is critical part of succeeding in business.
So how do you network? What types of relationships should you be looking to form?
Let’s talk about all things networking this week with Mark Sisson — his website hits on health and wellness trends, daily goals, and more!
The power of gratitude
More than anything else, I believe that the more you are aware of the incredible abundance that life has afforded you, the more you will focus on giving back as well as enjoying it.
I know many people who complain about money but don’t do anything to get rid of it. You can be one of those people!
By establishing a budget and keeping track of spending, you can begin to see how much time you have spent living an abundant life.
Furthermore, research suggests that being grateful is part of the reason we live longer. According to a study done by doctors at Harvard Medical School, “gratitude is related to greater happiness and health, hope for improved physical health, and better sleep.”
Next, learn how to give through volunteering your time when you could spend your time doing something you feel compelled to complete. A few hours a week or every other weekend shouldn’t cost you any money or take too much time.
These are things you can share with others :
The power of making plans
It’s common sense that we make plans for things we want to do. We have a calendar with all our meetings, events, and appointments. We plan time between classes and trips around restaurants that serve dinner.
We made plans because we desire certainty. Without planning, there is no certainty in life; we know this from experience. Certainties such as whether or not we will eat lunch are necessary parts of life, but uncertainty exists about everything else.
There are two types of people who don’t make plans: those who can’t initiate commitments (waiters, for instance), and those who aren’t really sure what they want to do.
People like me, who are comfortable making commitments and holding down jobs, need to think ahead too. We need to consider bills to pay and activities to attend.
But it’s also important to be aware of your dreams and what you want to accomplish. You should put yourself out there and try new things, but at some point you’ll have to decide if you actually want to continue doing them.
That being said, sometimes mistakes happen and you may need to explore or reconsider your choices. But first, look at what you’ve wanted and examine why you wanted it.
Was it purely physical – i.e., comfort, security, attention –or was it mental-such as enjoyment, happiness, self-worth–
The power of quieting the noise
A few weeks ago, my brother asked me to take his kids (ages 7, 10 and 12) to Disney World this summer. They have been begging him since last year to let them go with their dad. I said yes, we’ll talk about it next week.
You see, there is no way in hell that I would agree to taking anyone “weird”(my words, not hers!)to visit any of her family while she was growing up because, well, they are weird!
I made exactly the same decision when my daughter begged to spay her pet bunny rabbit at age 6. She was 3 years old.
What happened between those two occasions? Well, nothing much really except that we agreed for things like holidays and special events etc.
But what both of these young girls were feeling inside was how lonely and absent-minded they felt as children without some form of unconditional love from parents.
And all three of us could relate to that.
Now, you can tell me who else has gone through this, but most people cannot as it is confidential within families.
However, one night recently after some dessert had tomato sauce on it which makes me feel bad and unhappy, so I started doing some research into why adults sometimes find it difficult to connect with other people.
That’s right – even though I’m sure you’ve got your
