You can do it!
Those four simple words can be so powerful. The power of positive thoughts is so underrated in my opinion. It is a proven fact that we use only a portion of our brains in our daily living activities. Mentally, we are all capable of doing so much more with our brains than we even realize.
There is a whole realm of positive vs. negative thoughts we have in our minds and how they affect the outcome of things that we don’t even understand yet. There is a lot to be said for if you really believe that you can do something, you can will yourself to doing it through positive thoughts. Of course the opposite is true. If we don’t think we can do something and we fill our minds with negative thoughts, we probably won’t do it.
People, by nature, can easily start doubting themselves. We tend to sell ourselves short when it comes to what we are capable. It is during these times that a spoken positive word from someone else can really boost the attitude of a person. One person telling another that they believe that a person can do it can really make a huge difference in how the person approaches what they are trying to accomplish. It can totally change their attitude. It can be that one last little push that gets them over the hump and gets them to where they are trying to get to.
I think that sometimes we don’t realize how much affect we can have on other people. We can change people’s days for the good or the bad. Make up your mind to always be a person who affects someone else’s day for the better.
Our assignment this week is to find at least two people who seem to be struggling with something in their lives. It can be marital problems, a hard project at work, a person trying to run 5 miles, even as simple as a person who can’t find something in the store. Give that person positive reinforcement. Tell them that they can do it and show that you really believe in them. It can be someone you know or even a complete stranger. Be bold and affect the attitude of someone today.
