How many times have you heard yourself or someone else say, ''I don't think that will work.'' When you are negative minded you are more likely to say ''I can't'' or even, ''I don’t deserve anything good.'' A negative mindset will always limit you. It will always keep success from you. When you choose the negative, you have chosen to fail.
The law of auto-suggestion is the subconscious adoption of an idea. It is up to you whether or not the idea is a positive one. Negative thoughts equal negative results and can be quite costly -- up to, and including your own life or the lives of others..
By the use of auto-suggestion, anyone can rise to great heights of achievement and accomplish things that were once unimaginable. The following poem by Walter D. Wintle describes the positive mindset perfectly:
If you think you dare not, you don't
If you like to win, but you think you can't,
It is almost certain you won't.
For out of the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow's will--
It's all in the state of mind.
You've got to think high to rise,
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life's battles don't always go
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the man WHO THINKS HE CAN!"
Why practice mindful breathing? The basic task of the mindfulness of breathing is to focus on the sensation of the breathing process. Because the breathing process occurs in the present moment, focusing on individual breaths as they come and go necessarily means maintaining a present-centered, high-quality awareness. Also, focusing on the breathing process for any length of time requires continually remembering to pay attention to it, mindfulness as memory is involved as well.
And Man is Mind, and evermore he takes
The tool of Thought, and, shaping what he wills,
Brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills.
He thinks in secret, and it comes to pass:
Environment is but his looking glass."
