The power of positive thinking can make a huge difference in our lives. We live in a world full of stress and challenges that sometimes make it difficult for us to keep a positive outlook.  It is important that we focus on the positive, for our health and relationships.  Ways to stay positive include focusing on the good things in our lives, showing gratitude, and repeating positive affirmations each day to keep the good feelings flowing.

Power of positive affirmations

Affirmations can help us in all aspects of our lives from finance, love, self-confidence, and health.  Many people find these positive statements keep them focused.  These affirmations send a positive signal to your brain which can help you be more successful.

We are what we think and if we think we will succeed than we have a very good chance of doing so.  If we start off negative and feel that we are going to fail, then there is a good chance that may happen.  Life is hard, so it is important to give yourself every opportunity to succeed.  Affirmations and positive thoughts can aid you in your endeavors and keep you moving forward in a good direction.

Tips to stay positive

Here are some tips to help you.  The main areas involve keeping positive in your focus, reactions and how you treat others.

Positive Focus

Focus on the positive things in your life.  This can be about you, your family, your pets, your job or anything.  The important thing is to be grateful and positive at all times.  Doing this first thing in the morning can help get your day off to a good start.

React Calmly

Keep your reactions to events positive and calm.  When we get bad news, it is easy to get angry and blow up.  That puts a strain on your health and accomplishes very little.  Instead, try to calm down and think things through objectively.  Taking a walk and meditating can clear your mind and help you look at the problem calmly.

Show Appreciation

We all have something in our lives that is good.  We need to show gratitude for those things, people, events etc.  Each night before bed, think through the day and find one happy thing that happened.  Focus on that event and show appreciation for it.  That will put your body at ease before sleeping.


We live in a world with little compassion or love.  It is important that we pay attention to our situations and see if there are ways we can help others.  Sometimes the smallest gestures, like a smile, can have a big effect on others.  Do what you can to show compassion and love to people, animals, nature and yourself.  Everyone appreciates kindness.  Once you give that love out, it comes back to you.


Sometimes it is hard to forgive those that have done us wrong.  It is often even harder to forgive ourselves.  When we don’t forgive, we carry that negativity and anger with us. It affects our health, relationships and more.  Try to think about what is holding you back in life.  If forgiving someone, or yourself, can help you heal and move forward then do it.  It can be as simple as sitting in a quiet room, picturing a glowing white light around yourself and saying “I forgive…” and fill in the blank.  It is a start in the right direction and will help you feel more empowered.

Hopefully, these tips can help you focus on the good in your life. Keeping positive is beneficial to our relationships and health.  Here are some positive affirmations to help you on your path to a happier life. Good luck!

Today will be a good day!
