Positive Thinking Life Experience = Understanding Principles of Positive Thinking + Practicing Positive Thinking
First, let us trek on what is that we need to understand the principles of Positive Thinking. There are three fundamental principles of positive thinking. Come, here we go:
What you repeatedly think, you become
The quality of life you lead is directly proportional to your repeated thought pattern. Sow seeds of positivity in every thought.
Life is a roller coaster of ups and downs. People stay dissatisfied many times from things happening around them. They play a blame game on many things. The situation is connected with the state of mind. In reality, it depends on our perspective of looking at things. It is only our height of perspective that helps us to comprehend the happenings around us. Believe every problem has a solution. Get clarity on the problem to solve it.
We need to elevate to look at life from a higher perspective to overcome any challenges. Keep generating positive thoughts in high frequencies to match the wavelength of what you need to become. Realize the power of thoughts. Speak to yourself with positive thoughts. Your success is dependent on how you think repeatedly.
What you repeatedly feel, you attract it into your life experience
The more repeatedly you feel about a particular thought, the more likely you attract that experience into your life. These repeated vibrations are what creates reality in your life.
When any unpleasant event occurs, approach it with a positive mindset and try to learn an optimistic lesson out of it rather than dwelling on it. Evoke, your thoughts regulate your feelings and actions. So whenever any negative thought springs in your mind, instantly substitute it with a positive one. If you have observed, no matter what the circumstance is you tend to be happy with the world when you are feeling happy from within and you screech at the world when you feel discomfort within you.
Don’t keep dwelling on the hard memories. Cut the chain of negative emotions in your life. Fight with the worst case by generating thoughts on a conscious level. Understand the value of your positive thinking. It is the master key to live a life of positivity. Nurture your thought process with great care. Vibrations that you feel repeatedly will manifest in your life as reality.
What you imagine, you create that into reality
The power of your subconscious mind is higher than your conscious mind. It cannot distinguish between what is real and imaginary, what is right or what is wrong? It just registers whatever thoughts you generate and imagine developing a pattern in your brain. Visualizing is a thousand times more powerful tool in altering the pattern of brain waves.
It is the power of your mind to choose what it needs. Force yourself to imagine positivity in all that you do. Visualize your dreams in this state of positivity. It transforms that energy into reality. Fill your inner world with positive vibes. Never mind what the situation is, just imagine what you want it to be and match it with your vibration.
By understanding these principles and applying them in your everyday life is what creates a positive life. Now that we are aware of the principles, we shall look into the possibilities of how we can implement these in your day-to-day life.

Now we have understood how the positive thinking formula works and manifests in our life. Life does not create thoughts, thoughts create life. Change your thoughts to change your world.
We can further understand this through Psychology researcher Fredrickson’s ‘Fredrickson theory – broaden and build theory.’ It states that positive emotions broaden the sense of possibilities and open your mind, which consecutively allows you to shape new expertise and resources that can add value in other spaces of your life. By thinking positively, you start approaching things differently. You feel more content about yourself. You start exploring new opportunities that you never had before.
It enhances the ability to upskill and develop assets for handling different circumstances. Behind you is the infinite power and sanctity. Erase the effects of negative events feeding them with positive thoughts.
Hence, by expanding our horizons about positive thinking, we now realize its importance in our life. We have now realized how our thought pattern reflects on our life. It’s important to inject positive thought into every cell of the body. Keep repeating the Four-word formula – Faith, power, works, and wonders.
The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible. Positive thinking always pays. Find the hidden power in yourself and nurture it. Focus on the wisdom that life challenges are throwing at you.
