17 thoughts on “How Can I Become a Positive Thinker”

  1. This is a great post. Positive thinking is important, but you really have to train yourself to do it.

  2. We live in a world of stress and pessimistic people. I do believe quotes and positive affirmations can shift your energy and change your mood to where you can be a positive thinker on a regular basis!

  3. This is such an important post. You have to consciously make an effort to be positive. I sometimes think that the human condition is to default to negativity.

  4. I have to admit I’m not much of a positive thinker – it is something I need to get better at.

  5. I will never forget what one of my old boyfriends used to tell me – he was a teacher and told this to his students too. “Pick your attitude.” It always stuck with me even when I want to get upset over something whether valid or not. It can change a situation around like THAT!

  6. I like to think that I am a positive thinker. My husband is not, though, and it drives me insane. He doesn’t trust easily, and that leads to a lot of his negative thoughts. I think he could really benefit from this article.

  7. There is a lot of good information here; I have book-marked it to show my husband. I did here that in 2007, they discovered that a person CAN physically change their brain based on learning new behaviors and attitudes and of course, learning in general.

  8. This is really great. I think I am a pretty good positive thinker. I don’t see any point in being a downer or being around those who are.

  9. I’ve been reading so much on being positive. I don’t know why it is so hard to maintain a positive attitude and outlook but I’m going to keep trying. Thanks for the tips.

  10. These are very helpful tips. I don’t know why it s so easy for us to think negative right away.

  11. I am taught that being positive is a part of healing and losing weight. It is easy to think negative though lol.

  12. I think a big part of this is deciding to be a positive thinker and realizing why one finds themself to not be. Surrounding myself with positive people too is becoming more and more important. Even if I’m a positive thinker being around people who are negative is like having an anchor attached to your mind.

  13. I’m a huge fan of positive thinking! I drive my kids crazy because when they say things like “I can’t do that” I always go make them stand in front of the mirror and repeat “I can do that” repeatedly and I also make them say it like they mean it. It really has made a huge difference in their positive thinking!

  14. I try to start my day thinking of all the blessings i have. I always try to look at the bright side of things.

  15. Quotes are definitely my way of being motivated and inspired. It helps me avoid rash decisions and emotional outbursts.

    1. I hear you there, I have a quote app and I read the positive quotes each morning as well as night!
