Our Mind is an Incredible Power!
WE have abilities and powers that were're apparently not even aware of. We were born with these powers but we have never learned how to master them. Instead we go through life trying different things and hoping for the best - but never really getting the most out of our own powers.
Doctors and scientists now firmly believe that 75% of all sickness and disease starts in the mind. Researchers have also proven that stress, which starts in the mind, is the number one cause of all fatigue and illness.

Researchers have also proven that people who have a healthy and positive attitude -- or incorporate positive thinking -- live better lives. Why? Because they know how to use the power of their mind. Unfortunately most people never get their mind working for them. Instead, they get their mind to work against them -- creating things they don't want. Then they wonder why positive thinking doesn't work. The truth is they were never practicing positive thinking.
Why Think Positively?
All of our feelings, beliefs and knowledge are based on our internal
thoughts, both conscious and subconscious. We are in control, whether
we know it or not.
The biggest difference between people is their attitudes. For some, learning is enjoyable and exciting. For others, learning is a drudgery. For many, learning is just okay, something required on the road to a job.
Our present attitudes are habits, built from the feedback of parents, friends, society and self, that form our self-image and our world-image.
These attitudes are perhaps maintained by the inner conversations
we constantly have with ourselves, both consciously and subconsciously.

# Points Results
4-6: The mental miseries may be gaining on you. Take time to renew your positive traits.
7+: Challenge yourself to change your way of thinking.
Read the following information to take a closer look at some of the attitudes behind each of 12 the misery makers. Turn around sour thinking! Seek out the resources and information suggested to enhance positive thinking and achieve greater self-understanding and awareness.
Misery Maker #1: Do you believe others cause your feelings? Do others "make" you feel guilty about things?
Turnaround Mentality: You create your own feelings and make your own decisions. People and events do not cause feelings, but they can trigger your mental habits. You may wish to empower yourself with more information about relationships and communication skills.
Misery Maker #2: Are you so conscientious in your self-improvement efforts that you never miss a chance to remind yourself what you should or should not do? "I should have studied more." "I shouldn't have eaten so much."
Turnaround Mentality: "Shoulds" don't get the job done. They're just a way of punishing yourself after the fact. Guilt and shame don't produce much action; mostly, they drain your energy and discourage you. More information about realistically achieving peak performance may help you.
Misery Maker #3: Are you a relentless critic, always finding fault with the way you look and feel or the way others act toward you? Do you nag yourself and others, especially those you care about?
Turnaround Mentality: Replace criticism with encouragement. Encourage yourself and your friends rather than criticizing them. Give a compliment or a pat on the back. Visualize the positive and achieve what you want. Read more about improving self-esteem.
Misery Maker #4: Do you believe that you must do everything perfectly or not at all? Do you sacrifice fun in your life to achieve every goal?
Turnaround Mentality: Perfection is a high goal to aim for; don't insist on starting there or even arriving there. Do your best and then accept it. You can enhance your life performance and have fun, too. Seek out help to deal with your perfectionist tendencies.
Misery Maker #5: Do you assume you are to blame whenever someone is upset? Do you often ask yourself, "What did I do wrong?" If your roommate or significant other is in a bad mood, do you feel responsible for it?
Turnaround Mentality: The person who is upset "owns" the problem. Stop apologizing and accepting blame. Everyone has the right to have angry feelings, but you don't have to feel guilty. Recognize that interpersonal conflicts can be healthy, leading to constructive change and deeper understanding. Strive for emotional wellness with yourself and your relationships.
Misery Maker #6: Do you "steal" responsibility from others? Do you feel responsible for the happiness of another person? Do you take on other people's responsibilities, then get angry when they don't appreciate all you've done for them?
Turnaround Mentality: Stealing responsibility from others only cheats them out of a growing experience. Learning to deal with the consequences of one's behavior is part of being an adult. Seek greater self-responsibility and self-determination. Make some lists to clarify your own needs and wants. Remember, the world has many shoulders to carry it.
Misery Maker #7: Do you call yourself stupid if you make a mistake? Do you call yourself a failure if you slip off your diet or skip a test review session? If your mistakes are pointed out to you, do you feel as if you are under attack and become defensive?
Turnaround Mentality: You're only human, so treat yourself with kindness, not abuse. Allow yourself to make mistakes and then forgive yourself. Move ahead with a positive attitude; take time to laugh at yourself. Explore the healing power of laughter.
Misery Maker #8: Are you a compulsive people pleaser? Maybe you need the frequent approval of others and forget to give yourself approval. Do you make sacrifices and then get mad at yourself?
Turnaround Mentality: Give yourself permission to decide you're doing the best you can. Don't wait to hear it from someone else. Tell yourself you're doing a good job, and ask for encouragement when you need it. Do something extra nice for a very important person -- you!
Misery Maker #9: Do you motivate yourself with fear? Fear and scare tactics may get your attention, but they won't last long as far as motivation is concerned. You may end up feeling anxious and unhappy.
Turnaround Mentality: Motivate yourself with choice, not fear. Visualize success and make decisions that fit with that image of success. For instance, picture yourself succeeding at a task and think of the satisfaction and good feelings you'll have when you meet your goals. Learn more about effective self-assertion.
Misery Maker #10: Do you interpret events and comments in a negative light? If your friend says "Your hair is looking good today," do you ask yourself "What was what was wrong with it yesterday?"
Turnaround Mentality: You do have a choice, so choose a positive interpretation. Accept a compliment! Look at temporary setbacks as opportunities for growth. The positive appraisal will help you maintain your energy and give you an improved outlook. Encourage positive selftalk from those inner voices.
Misery Maker #11: Do you hang on to painful memories? Do you dwell on bad feelings to justify your bad mood? If someone doesn't say they are sorry, do you stay mad at that person?
Turnaround Mentality: The only part of the past that affects you is your present interpretation of it. Only you are in charge of that. Try to reinterpret these past events in a positive way. Forgiving is helpful and, at times, is necessary to move forward. Don't forget to forgive yourself, too.
Misery Maker #12: Do you coach yourself into believing you can't do certain things or deal with change?
Do you frequently hear yourself saying or thinking "I can't"? If you say this often enough, you will soon believe it. It will become a self- fulfilling prophecy and you will feel more powerless and out of control. Turnaround Mentality: Believe in yourself and realize that you are a capable person. Give yourself positive, encouraging statements. If your goal requires a response or approval from others, you revert to feeling helpless and feel out of control. Work at feeling good about yourself and become more self-reliant. Seek help when you need it.
YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE
Positive Thinking for Your Health - by Michael Nudel and Eva Nudel,
Positive thinking is an effective way to achieve mastery of self healing. Maintenance of a positive energy level in a healer's own energy field reduces stress and emotional tension in the healer and in others. Positive emotions and feelings and a positive mental attitude can improve the quality of people's lives and heal their bodies of illnesses and stresses.
On the other hand, negative emotions and feelings bring poisoning toxins to the organism. Strong negative emotions such as anger, spite, envy, jealousy, and fear make the endocrine system accumulate poisons in the blood. Anxiety, depression, and doubt can also cause poisoning of the blood. Passive and lengthy negative emotions are even more dangerous for health than active, sudden and momentary negative emotions. Negative emotions shorten the span of life.
Treatment of physical symptoms with positive thoughts and statements
was popularized in France a century ago, and it still has the power
to overcome unwanted states (stress, tension, and unhappiness).
When people predict that something is going happen to them, it is
more likely to
Psychosomatic illnesses can worsen when given special attention. Instead of paying direct attention to pain or illness, every time a negative thought occurs, say something like, " It will be better than I think." When a wish of any desired condition is established in the mind, somehow the unconscious mind leads the wish to realization-not magically, but through mental programming.
Besides healing illnesses, positive attitudes help one to withstand
troubles and problems, make correct decisions, and overcome obstacles.
Do not focus on negative events; try to discover a positive perspective.
For example, individuals should understand that they need to read more
or think more of others in order to find ways of perfect communication.
Because the thoughts of individuals are either positive or negative,
they are reflected in their social or asocial behaviors. People should
observe and conceive the world around them, as well as their inner
worlds, with positive perceptions.
Positive thinking 'offsets ageing process'
"While genes obviously play a role in everything we do, there are many modifiable factors that we can control," Cambridge University neuropsychologist Felicia Huppert says.
For instance, in a recent analysis of data from a long-term study of almost 9000 Britons aged 18 years and over, Dr Huppert and colleague Joyce Whittington found that upbeat people were more likely to be alive seven years on than less positive people.
According to the Australian-born Dr Huppert - a visiting fellow at the University of Western Australia -- the finding fits neatly with research from Yale University in Connecticut about the impact of "ageist" stereotypes.
Yale researcher Becca Levy found that when negative subliminal messages such as "senile" and "dying" were flashed on a computer screen, older people showed signs of physical stress and performed poorly on mental tests.
Dr Huppert adds that early results from another British study of 12,000 people aged 50 and up revealed it was incorrect to believe that all old people were less mentally agile than younger people.
