#259: Believe In The Possible

Monday, March 15, 2010

"If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth." Mark 9:23

* * * * *

Simply believing we will receive all we want and desire does not mean we will actually get what we want or think we want. Sorry, life is not that easy.

But, when we believe in some higher power, it frees our thinking to mesh with the goodness of the world. Doing so takes us from negative thinking to the belief that all things truly are possible.

The famous psychologist William James said, "Our belief at the beginning of a doubtful undertaking is the one thing that insures the successful outcome of your venture."

Note that he said "...the one thing..." not "one of the things."

When we expect the best, an energy is released that tends to bring a successful conclusion to us whatever the problem we face at the moment. Expect the worst, however, and the mind releases a power that repulses success, like magnets of opposite power that either attract or repel each other.

Fill your mind with belief in positive outcomes. Fill your mind with faith that things will work out in your favor. Practice looking for the positives in all situations. Recognize how continuing to expect the best sets in motion unseen forces that attract the best.

Let these mental exercises to slip into your subconscious and over time they will guide your conscious thinking into seeing the positives in all situations.

This process will eventually change you into someone who automatically believes the best will occur, someone who automatically changes negative situations into positive ones.

But, it takes belief in a higher power. It takes faith. And it takes a sustained effort to draw success to us.

Are you up for the challenge?

    This is something, I really need to try. The first things that come to my mind are not usually positive, they are often times negative, but I seem to try to talk myself into positivity. I would love the positive to be the first thing I think! Thanks for the challenge Lou.

    Wow.

    I know I am a pessimist. I don't know how to think positive. It seems I was built to expect the worst. And I usually do expect the worst. Then when it happens, I'm not disappointed. But when I hope for the best, I get disappointed.

    Above all, I am walking with the Lord. Is that a contradiction? emoticon

    It seems I not only need to exercise my body, but my mind and thoughts too. emoticon
