POSITIVE THOUGHT IS A ZERO NUMBER (Ernst Ferstl)
Being positive about life does not, of course, mean being uncritical about things. A healthy dose of realism and a sensible attitude to things should therefore not be thrown overboard straight away. In challenging situations, it can be quite helpful to accept the circumstances as they are (letting go), turn your thoughts away from the circumstances (substitution/distraction), calm down, and start dreaming (imagination/thought travel). If one then supports this mindful state with intensive thinking of certain truths (suggestion/influence of an idea or sensation), real negative facts can be transformed into real positive facts. And that alone with the power of your own thoughts. With the power of positive thinking.
WE ARE WHAT WE THINK. EVERYTHING WE ARE IS CREATED WITH OUR THOUGHTS. WITH OUR THOUGHTS WE MAKE THE WORLD (Buddha)
Not only Buddha and many other sages knew about the power of thoughts. Psychotherapy also knows that positive thinking also has a positive effect on all areas of life: On health, mental well-being, mental abilities and perception, professional and financial success, and even interpersonal relationships. For example, positive-thinking people usually enjoy good physical health, since mental and physical well-being are naturally closely linked. A positive attitude to life – in addition to a healthy and balanced diet, sufficient sleep and moderate exercise – acts on the internal organs like an elixir of life. Optimists stay young and healthy longer. They believe that they are in control of their own well-being and happiness, and that makes them strong and happy.
