Our mind is so powerful, what thoughts you entertain could either make or break you. This blog is inspired by Norman Vincent Peale's book, "The Power Of Positive Thinking".
What is a tough-minded optimist? He is one real positive thinker. If you are a person who has got what it takes to overcome the hurdles that come masquerading your way, you are one tough-minded optimist. It's a "jungle" out there and it's true the famous line "survival of the fittest". The stronger ones are those who deemed fit to survive the sometimes tough world we live in.
According to Peale, there are two kinds of people in this world: the tender-minded and the tough-minded. The first one being the more "sensitive soul" who is easily rocked by criticisms, appalled by life's adversities and feels as though he's always burdened even by so simple things. Shakes them to the bone, easily gives up and quits trying too early on.
Exact opposite is the tough-minded one mentioned earlier who takes criticisms well, obstacles seem to challenge him, making him an even better individual after each storm passes.
Thinking positively during the worst of times is a must if not only to keep us sane even in shaky, distressful situations. We ought to start developing our "inner toughness", ( it takes more than to be physically tough) or tensile strength for both mind and spirit. Reverse our mental image of ourselves as being weak to a clear picture as becoming strong. Hold that positive imaging in our consciousness until it takes with us.
During dark periods, be a positive thinker, see the possibilities- always see them, for they are always there. Like automatic ringcentral reviews, depression buzzing your ears, remember what you think you will become.
If negativity keeps on ringing, do your best to push it aside and focus on the brighter side of things.
