The Power of Positive Thinking is a Thing. A Big Thing.
We’ve all heard it all our lives: various ways of expressing the power of positive thoughts and positive words to turn things around. We know the platitudes… the sage advice in timeless sayings.
But do we do it?
Popular Positive Sayings
“Look on the bright side.”
“It’s the glass half full or half empty.”
“Take a deep breath and count to 20.”
“Look on the sunny side of life.”
“When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.”
We’ve all heard these kinds of familiar sayings forever. Perhaps that’s the problem. These have been around for so long and we’ve heard them so much that we tend to overlook them.
Familiarity leads to insouciance. Like the scenery on the road we travel every day, we tend to not even notice it anymore. That kind of indifference is common.
Same thing for wisdom we think we know.
The difference comes with the application.
