Choose Positive Thought

Every new day has the potential of being the best day of your life.
Your mind can make that so. You decide what each day will bring.

by Michael Corthell

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 are beaten, you are,
  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.

If you think you'll lose, you're lost
  For out of the world we find,

Success begins with a fellow's will--
  It's all in the state of mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are,
  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
  To the stronger or faster man,

But soon or late the man who wins
  Is the man WHO THINKS HE CAN!"

A positive mindset mixed with faith will move mountains. Positive mindfulness is a human being's ability to be fully present. That is, to be fully aware of where you are and what you're doing, and not be overly reactive or overwhelmed by what's by any drama going on around you.
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.
So then, be mindful of your thoughts, they become words. Be mindful of  your words, they become actions. Be mindful of  your actions, they become habits.  Be mindful of  your habits, they become your character. Be mindful of your character, it becomes your destiny.

I'll finish up with this poem by James Allen:

As a Man Thinketh

"Mind is the Master power that molds and makes,
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."

The core of your being, your soul, will attract to itself those thoughts which are tucked away in your 'secret place'. Thoughts of love, but also of hate and infinite fears. You will, in your own mind create circumstances that are completely your own just by thinking them.

Understanding The Universal Law of Compensation

''The wings of Time are black and white, Pied with morning and with night. Mountain tall and ocean deep Trembling balance duly keep.'' — Ralph Waldo Emerson This stanza from 'Compensation' conveys the idea that time is a blend of contrasting experiences, marked by both light and darkness. The phrase "wings of Time" symbolizes the passage of time, which encompasses both positive (morning) and negative (night) aspects. The mention of "Mountain tall and ocean deep" suggests the vast and varied dimensions of existence. The imagery of "Trembling balance duly keep" underscores the delicate equilibrium that is maintained despite these opposing forces. Overall, the stanza highlights the duality and balance inherent in the passage of time and the world's diverse experiences. _____ ''The Universe always seeks to balance itself, in fact, it demands it.''  — Michael Corthell None of us can avoid the consequen

A SIMPLIFIED Guide to Manifest Anything You Desire

"Embrace New Thought principles in a concise journey toward manifestation. Align your desires with purpose, weaving simplicity and intention into a tapestry of fulfillment. Manifest wisely, manifest consciously." Michael Corthell Following these three fundamental steps will set you on the path to achieving the life you've always envisioned and accomplishing your desired goals. The primary component in manifesting any desire is faith or belief that the desire is ALREADY in existence, plus feeling the joy and gratitude associated with the realization of the desire fulfilled. 1.

How Small Acts of Kindness Change You and the World

A peaceful world really comes down to choice because we all carry with us, as human beings, not just the capacity to be kind, but the choice to be kind. by Michael Corthell ''This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.''  — Dalai Lama Kindness is defined by most folks as a behavior marked by ethical characteristics, a pleasant disposition, and concern for others. It is known as a virtue and recognized as something of high social value in almost all cultures and religions.  What does kindness mean to you? Am I kind enough in this topsy-turvy world? Is it even possible to practice kindness consistently? Everyone has heard the Golden Rule , but not everyone takes it to heart. Kindness often gets overlooked as a sign of weakness, and to an extent, it can be—there is such a thing as being too nice. But a little kindness can still go a
