Could it really be that easy? Is it possible to just flip a switch and make our thoughts concrete? There have been numerous studies showing that the state of our mind can dramatically affect our lives. Now I’m not claiming that positive visualization is a super power of some sort. You won’t be able to bend reality to your will or manifest a house and a car out of thin air. You will however, see steady improvement in your life day in and day out.
A positive mind tends toward positive things. A negative mind tends toward negative things.
It is possible to train your brain to see the good things that exist around you already. Things you might miss when you are distracted by something else. To expect good things. The key is learning to pause before you react to your own thoughts. When a moment arises and your worries and fears start to creep up on you and you have to make a difficult choice. That pause will allow you to reframe your circumstances and see them from all angles.
