Just looking at a picture of a puppy should put a smile on your face, right? In 1952, Norman Vincent Peale told us that positive thinking will make our lives much better. In his book, The Power of Positive of Thinking, he said “The way to happiness: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry. Live simply, expect little, give much. Scatter sunshine, forget self, think of others.” Powerful stuff, right? Imagine if we all lived out Mr. Peale’s wish for us. The world would be a better place for sure.
Try these two steps to progress towards positive thinking and happier living:
Step 1 – Practice gratitude. It’s hard to be negative when you are always thankful.
Step 2 – Put others before yourself. If you seek out ways to help others, it is difficult to focus on worry and negativity.
Go forth and seek positive thinking and happier living!
