Positive Thinking Pitfalls

‘Positive Thinking’ seem to be the buzzwords of the moment.

The Law of Attraction will make it all drop into your lap?

When you watch films like “The Secrets,” you are told, all you have to do is: use Positive Thinking and think about what you want and miraculously The Law of Attraction will make it all drop into your lap?

Unfortunately, most of us live in the real world where things are not quite that simple. Without any doubt, there can be an element of positive thinking bringing real world gains but it is only a small element.  To get what you want you have to not only think positively but you must also take positive action.

Here is a delightful animated video by Barbara Ehrenreich that perfectly explains the point I’m making.  This video should help you achieve your goals by using Positive Thinking and The Law Of Attraction.  Just watch and enjoy:

Hope you enjoyed Barbara’s message and you are now going to spend your time acting positively so that there is no room in your head for negative thoughts. Your new found positive energy combined with your positive thinking will bring many positive benefits to you and all you care for.

Laughter, The Best Medicine by Tony Hawks

Tony Hawks is a much admired British Stand-up Comic

 

Laughter has always been part of my life but recently I began to think more deeply about it when I was asked to contribute to a radio program, Laugh Out Loud. Not long before this, I’d returned from a trip to India where I’d met people who claimed that laughter can actually improve the state of our health.

Whilst aimlessly wandering around Calcutta, as you do, I turned a corner in a public park and stumbled upon Read the rest of this entry

How Does This Make You Feel?

The Cab

“I walked to the door and knocked. ‘Just a minute’, answered a frail, elderly voice. I could hear something being dragged across the floor.
After a long pause, the door opened. A small woman in her 90’s stood before me. She was wearing a print dress and a pillbox hat with a veil pinned on it, like somebody out of a 1940s movie.
By her side was a small nylon suitcase. The apartment looked as if Read the rest of this entry

Networking

Networking is one of those skills that you just have to develop if you are going to succeed in our modern world.  Even if you don’t have to meet people in your daily work routine, you probably have to interact with someone over the phone or internet.

Here is a great article by John Heckers outlining some of the big mistakes often made when networking:

ONIONS – Wonder cure?

This is the contents of an email,
sent to me by Alicia Tucker, a well respected Therapist
her contact details are at the end of the article

 

I have never tried this and hopefully won’t get sick enough to try it…
but what an interesting thought and if possible amazing.
Let me know your stories on Onions.

ONIONS! 

Who Would’ve Thought?

 

 

 

 

In 1918 when the flu killed 40 million people, there was a Doctor who visited many farmers to see if he could help them combat the flu. Many of the farmers and their family had contracted it, and many died.

The doctor came upon one farmer, and to his surprise,  everyone in the household was very healthy.  When the doctor asked what the farmer was doing that was different, the wife replied that she had placed an unpeeled onion in a dish in the rooms of the home (probably only two rooms back then).  The doctor couldn’t believe it and asked if he could have one of the onions and place it under the microscope.  She gave him one, and when he did this, he did find the flu virus in the onion.  It obviously absorbed the bacteria, therefore, keeping the family healthy.

Stamp Out Negativity…Fast!
by Darryl Hudson

You’ve probably heard that one of the most common
practices of successful people is positive thinking. But
how easy is it to really make this a practice in your
life? Sure, you’ve probably had good days where you could
keep your thoughts positive and empowering.

But what about those days when it just seems that
nothing is going right and you can’t seem to keep the
flies of negative thought from ruining your picnic?
If
you’re curious about the solution to this dilemma, this
simple yet powerful strategy might be just what you’re
looking for…

Reframing Your Thoughts

The first key to stamping out negative thoughts fast
is to accept that your thoughts not only influence your Read the rest of this entry

If you use antibiotics yeast infections may be in your future. It is a simple fact that the use of antibiotics is a major cause of yeast infections. It does not matter which antibiotic you use or why you use it. All antibiotics will produce conditions inside the body that are ideal for the growth of Candida yeast infections.

Antibiotics serve a very valuable purpose. Doctors are anxious to prescribe them for many illnesses and, when used appropriately, they can save lives. The purpose of antibiotics is to kill bacteria and they do it very well. In fact, they sometimes do it too well. By killing all bacteria they not only kill the dangerous bacteria but also the friendly helper bacteria that keep the body healthy. That is when the problems start.

Antibiotics are prescribed so often that some people have taken many courses over their lifetime. This frequent use causes a build-up of antibiotics in the body and makes it hard for the good bacteria to survive. The body also can become dependent upon antibiotics to kill infection.

Everyone’s body contains friendly bacteria that are needed by the body to defend against attacks by unfriendly bacteria and fungus. These friendly bacteria live naturally Read the rest of this entry

Money Was Never The Root To Evil!

Earlier this evening I joined a wonderful webinar
with the lovely Rev. Maggy Whitehouse

The topic was the Spiritual Laws of Prosperity,
One of the subjects Maggy can extol on

She dispelled many myths in the hour,
especially the one that says,
“The love of money is the route of all evil”

According to Maggy a better translation would be,
“Obsession with money is A route of all the crap in your life”

Here is a one page PDF of her translation

Maggy Love Of Money

As soon as I have the MP3 of the webinar from Maggy
hopefully in a few days time, that will also be on this blog

I recommend you also follow Maggy on FaceBook

FAILURE! What are the benefits?

The first time I read that FAILURE was an essential part of any success story was
whilst reading my favourite book; Napoleon Hill’s classic work, Think and Grow Rich!

Napoleon uses the language of his time which can seam rather archaic in the 21st century

However, I was grateful to discover that one of the most successful writers of the
21st century also extols the virtue of making the most of failure

Management Verses Technical Support

This is another item that someone added to one of my old blogs a few years ago

Whilst looking for useful information to add to my site http://How2HelpYourself.com 
I thought this was worth a second showing:-

 

A man is flying in a hot air balloon and realizes he is lost.
He reduces his altitude and spots a man down below.
He lowers the balloon further and shouts:

“Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?”

The man below says:
“Yes, you re in a hot air balloon, hovering 30 feet above this field.”

“You must work in Technical Support,” says the balloonist.

“I do,” replies the man. “How did you know?”

“Well” says the balloonist,
“everything you have told me is technically correct, but completely useless.”

The man below says: “You must be in management.”

“I am,” replies the balloonist, “but how did you know?”

“Well”, says the man, “you don’t know where you are,
or where you’re going, but you expect me to be able to help.
You re still in the same position you were before we met,

but now it’s my fault!”

 

Just like the Prison/Work post this was worth a second showing

Is Happiness a Decision or a Destination?

If happiness is elusive to you; something that, despite your best efforts,
you just cannot find; then you are probably trying too hard to look for it,
like searching for a unique  path through a forbidden forest?

At this time of year, we frequently get a weather system called,
“Anti-Cyclonic Gloom ”

This is where the weather is just GREY!
Not Hot; Not Wet, Not Cold! Just GREY

This was a question I was pondering the other day,

Why are Self Help books so called?

This post was pasted into one of my blogs about 3 years ago.

It is so appropriate for today of all days; so I repeat it here

 

I would like to point out some similarities between prison and work 


1. PRISON VS WORK

If you ever get these two environments confused, this should make things a little bit clearer.

IN PRISON……you spend the majority of your time in a 10X10 cell.
AT WORK……..you spend the majority of your time in an 8X8 cubicle.

IN PRISON……you get three meals a day.
AT WORK……..you get a break for one meal and you have to pay for it.

IN PRISON……you get time off for good behaviour.
AT WORK……..you get more work for good behaviour.

IN PRISON……the guard locks and unlocks all the doors for you.
AT WORK……..you’re often required to carry a security card and open all the doors yourself.

IN PRISON……you can watch TV and play games.
AT WORK……..you get fired for watching TV and playing games.

IN PRISON……you get your own toilet.
AT WORK……..you share the toilet with some people who pee on the seat.

IN PRISON……they allow your family and friends to visit.
AT WORK……..you’re not supposed to even speak to your family.

IN PRISON……all expenses are paid by the taxpayers.
AT WORK……..you pay all your expenses to get to work, and then they deduct taxes from your salary to pay for prisoners.

IN PRISON …..you must deal with sadistic wardens.
AT WORK……..they’re called managers.

IN PRISON….. you spend most of your life inside bars wanting to get out.
AT WORK …… you spend most of your time wanting to get out and go inside bars

Hope that’s clarified things a bit for you.

Last Night I was Shocked and Humbled with this Lesson in Positive Attitudes

Very unusual for me to watch TV but last night I saw a documentary called, “Stephen Hawking’s Universe.”

Interesting as the program was; the story of The Cosmos from Big Bang to The End Of Time; what struck me most was the Positive Attitude of Professor Hawking.
Here is a man, totally paralysed and confined to a wheelchair and yet he considers himself lucky!
This is what he said in the program last night,
“I think of myself as fortunate because, although I cannot move and I have to speak through a computer, in my mind I am free.
