The Only Way Forward Is To Think Positive


It is far unreasonable to ask mankind to continually think positive even in the midst of the various problems that engulf our everyday life. Life is tough and it has been tough since time immemorial.

No one ever said it was going to be easy anyway, and even if someone said it, there isn’t any guarantee for such a buoyant promise so do not rely on it. We have no option than to find a workable way around the tight fixed thorny walls of life within which we are placed.

Fixed to a tight corner and presented with unfavourable conditions each day, such state of affair pushes us to endlessly lament over our lives. Many of us cannot even remember a day we got up from our beds and did not think about how sad and pathetic our lives are, despite all our optimism and hard work geared towards making it better.

It is an undisputable fact that life is not fair. It is true that life has been mean to us without any justification. Life does not owe any of us any sort of explanation and it is not accountable to anyone for whatever it bestows on us.

Just think about this for a minute, life by its natural composition is mean and wicked and despite all these, it has an absolute sovereignty to do what and as it pleases. It therefore means that life will continue to crucify us until we find a way to deal with our follies which makes it easy for her attacks.

We all want to be somewhere, move out of our dismal lifestyle and achieve our dreams. Stand tall and strong, and join the sturdy army of successful men and women who have battled and defeated life, thereby riding high in excellence, glory and achievements. We want to move forward, move out of this tight corner we find ourselves all the time. We certainly know what we want to do but how do we do it?

The only tool needed to break this chain cuffed on our hands by life is our individual minds. The only way forward is to think positive. Life as an enemy will be confused in her on endeavours if above all the atrocities and unsettled waves it throws at us, we are able to think positive and forge forward.

I know it sounds unreasonable to do so especially when your life is fully “suckered” but maybe it is the unreasonableness of being able to think positive when all hope is lost which pushes one out of the doom to becoming the boom.

Let us start this week with a positive mindset and attitude. It doesn’t matter what circumstance you find yourself. The antidote to getting you out of even the worst situation is your mind and positive thinking.

In all things, remember what Buddha said “We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.”.

Your mind defines you and set the pace for your movements. Be positive in your thinking because that is the only way forward in life. Bear it in mind that what you think, you will become. Good Morning and Have a great week!

  1. I agree to this. Positivity effects perception of everything, Ive said that before.. If you keep a negative mind set, then you will look into everything that way and not want to work on things to make it right. You will more likely be a quitter, and give up. I myself have been upset about things, and keeping my negative mood effected my relationships with my friends, health deteriorated, it controlled my thoughts, and so I was a different person. I learned these last couple months there is no need to hold anger. All that does in reality is keep you down. Alot of people enjoy seeing others depressed or they feed off of anger also. I guess it makes them feel better about their own faults.

    No one here is dealt the perfect hand of life, so try to look at everything in a positive light. If you are sick, you are not the only one. If you are lonely, you are not the only one. There is always someone else in this world who has it worse than you, even when it seems there isnt! Never give up. So, no matter “what” you are going through, for whoever may read this, it will get better. Just pray on it and keep positive thoughts. It will help and you will “move forward” like the above article says. Trust me, I’ve been there more than once! 😉
