Magic of Positive Thinking
Yes, there is magic in
positive thinking! In aviation, the word attitude means the angle at
which the plane meets the wind, whether the wings are level with the
horizon, and whether it is climbing or descending. The pilot who fails to
take responsibility for the attitude of his aircraft is in serious
any person who has not taken charge of his or her own
beliefs and attitudes runs a similar risk. The key to
cultivating and maintaining a positive mental attitude is to
take control of your thinking and avoid negative minded
people. It’s a challenging task to develop a calm, focused
mind, but well worth the effort.
Every setback and failure you experience also comes with a
great opportunity. When one door closes, a window of
possibility opens. The key is to
look for the opportunity and avoid dwelling on failure.
Think thoughts of defeat and you are bound to feel defeated.
Your attitude is not determined by circumstances, but by how
you respond to those circumstances. Your mind determines
your attitude; you always have the choice to respond either
positively or negatively. What happens to a person is less
important than what happens within them.
The great inventor, Thomas A. Edison, was known for his positive mental
attitude. In December 1914, the Edison Laboratory in West Orange, New
Jersey, was almost entirely destroyed by fire. Edison lost $2,000,000
worth of equipment and the records of much of his life’s work. The morning
after the fire, as the 67-year-old inventor walked among the ashes, he was
anything but defeated. Looking around, he remarked, “There is great value
in disaster. All our mistakes are burned up. Thank God we can start anew.”
