Positive thinking is the essence of success and happiness. This will ensure all understood in motivational issues. Does positive thinking is better than negative? Of course, optimism can help you get things too much. However, positive thinking alone is not efficient. It must accompany the effort, knowledge, creativity and sense of reality.
“If you behave as if you were rich, you will get rich”, said the businessman Adnan Khashoggi. This statement is a bit abstract. Instead, the English cleric Charles Caleb Cotton said it best: “It is good to behave like … but it’s even better to grow to the point that it is not a performance.” Are there no areas in life where you can “pretend it till you make it”. To carry out a business takes talent and a little knowledge. It is not enough enthusiasm.
Make sure your dreams and goals are based in reality. Those based in fantasy are just that, illusions. Even in dreams based on reality, know your abilities and your potential to fulfill them according to your situation. Do you consider the obstacles that appear in your life as a challenge? So your optimism is correct. If otherwise you run away to the first problem, your optimism will get you nowhere.
The dreams that are not practicable will not come true for you to be more positive
Many motivational speakers say that anything is possible. This statement is a “nonsense”. Ask those who sneeze with your eyes open and see if they can. “Knowledge of what is possible is the beginning of happiness,” wrote the philosopher and novelist George Santayana. Having an exaggerated confidence in your ability to get something can be as bad as the limiting beliefs.
Of course you should follow your dreams. It’s good to be ambitious. It is good to accept challenges. Only that positive thinking alone is not enough. Do not let your enthusiasm run wild. “The man with insight enough to admit your limitations is the closest to perfection”, said the prodigious German writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
You can not live the fantasy of ignoring reality. Because at some point reality will make you fall to the ground. God wanted you to live here, so always remember that success is to do the best you can with what you have. An anonymous sage said: “Learn to define yourself, to be content with something concrete and some concrete work, dare to be who you really are and learn, in a good mood, everything you’re not.”
