“The Path to Success: Harnessing the Power of Positive Thinking to Reach Your Goals”

When was the last time you heard someone mention the concept of mindset as a solution to a problem, challenge, or to reach a goal?  It might have been five minutes ago, depending on the crowd you hang out with. It has become clear that Positive Mindset =Positive Results. Let’s discuss how to harness the power of positive thinking to reach your goals.

Mindset is a popular buzzword because it can profoundly influence your life and how you view your circumstances and situations. It has been studied extensively, with research showing that having a positive mindset can help us to stay motivated and take on challenges with resilience.

Shirzad Chamine at Stanford University has incredible research on Positive Intelligence®, where he studied the neuro-pathways in the brain when a person has positive thoughts vs. negative thoughts.  A positive mindset and positive thoughts equal positive results.


Positive Intelligence

Positive Intelligence® is based on the latest research in positive psychology, cognitive psychology, neuroscience, and performance science.  With these studies, it is clear that Mindset, or Mental Fitness as Shirzad often calls it, is a key part of living a healthy and happy lifestyle.  Mindset plays a vital role in your ability to reach your personal, professional, and physical goals.

Your mindset helps to foster a can-do attitude, allowing you to see challenges as opportunities or gifts for growth instead of obstacles or failure.   It also teaches you to appreciate yourself and your circumstance.  It helps you creatively solve a problem or overcome a challenge by providing the motivation, confidence, and focus necessary to take action.

A positive mindset teaches you to appreciate yourself and your situations, while providing you with the tools needed to take action and reach your goals. A positive mindset can help you handle adversity and difficult life situations that inevitably arise and can help you focus on the good things in life, identify and work towards goals, and create more meaningful relationships with others.

Optimism and gratitude are an integral part of a positive mindset that helps you cultivate the confidence to take action and strive for success.  It can help to create resilience during tough times, giving you the strength and determination to push through and reach your desired outcomes or something close.

It is important to practice mindful thinking and cultivate a positive attitude to achieve good health, happiness, and contentment.

Mastering your mindset is a process that requires dedication and practice!

Like many things, this practice is simple but not necessarily easy, at least at first.  There are hundreds of social media posts and books written on the subject.  Most of which focus on one thing or another.  Many people use a combination of affirmations, gratitude, meditation, and journaling.

The soon-to-be-published book Healthy Thinking, Happy Life: Master Your Mindset and Get  $#it Done, takes a different approach. Rather than focusing on one strategy, every author gives you several tools, tips, and strategies to experience.  Then, use the one or two that resonate with you.  Practice takes time to master, and with the help of the Healthy Thinking authors, you can master your mindset quickly and effectively.
