Just Think Positive and All Will Work Out . . . Really?

Larry Olsen April 29, 2020

Now more than ever is the time to wake up and think about what you are thinking about. I don’t think I’ve ever had so much trouble trying to keep things the same so I can stay comfortable. Every time I know we will bounce back, we don’t. Something else comes up. What is one to do, to not get frightened or depressed? I have it, just think positive and it will all work out.

I’m too much of a pragmatist to believe that, but there is something to say about being positive when the “now” is changing so rapidly. The answer lies not in trying to be positive but having a goal or vision that keeps you positive. Since we get to choose what to think about, what we think about become beliefs and beliefs drive our behavior, then choose to think about what we want to have happen.

I know that we will be healthy and living within a strong economy. When I choose to believe this, it changes how I see what’s going on. I don’t see it as more of the problem, but opportunities to live healthier, safer, more courageous and financially stronger. Beliefs make it so. We can let life choose our beliefs or we can choose our own. Simply a matter of choice, but when you make that choice, you’ll find out for yourself how powerful beliefs can truly be.
