The Power Of Positive Thinking: How Are You Going To Use It

If you knew you couldn’t fail, what is one thing you’d like to do in your life?

The power of positive thinking and positive energy is a real element in the universe. I truly believe this. I’ve climbed mountains with this energy, I’ve jumped out of planes with this energy, and sailed around the Caribbean with this energy.

These are just a few of the many achievements I’ve attained by implementing this method of positive thinking.

One of the things that I’ve noticed over the years is that there are always those people who want to tell you something can’t be done. There are a number of reasons for this. They either believe that because they’ve taken so long to get somewhere and achieve a similar standing, goal or milestone that it should be the same for everyone. Or their vision is not big enough to encompass the idea of stepping out of comfort zones to achieve greatness.

Have you ever heard that phrase you have to pay your dues? This is true to some degree but did you ever thing that different people have different dues based on the life they’ve led, the people they know, and the things they can accomplish?

Everyone is on a different path. It’s very important to not let other people’s limitations become your limitations.

If I had a dollar for every skeptical comment I’ve gotten from people when I’ve told them something I’m going to do, I’d be richer in money but poorer for having not accomplished my goals and my dreams. I’m glad I don’t listen. Maybe it’s stubbornness. Or maybe it’s because a long time ago I made a promise to myself that if I decided there was something I wanted to do, I was going to do it.

I never wanted to look back at my life and say I wish I had done.

This energy has taken me around the world to 32 countries and countless islands throughout the Caribbean and the Bahamas. I learned to scuba dive and became a Master Scuba Diver Trainer and have taught diving in 6 countries even though a diving death of a relative caused my family to believe it was one of the most dangerous sports in the world. I learned how to sail and posses a 200 ton near coastal United States Coast Guard Captain’s license even though the first boat job I ever had was in a galley and the captain thought I’d never amount to anything.

My point is, when I put my mind to doing something I do it. And it’s important not to let people who say “you can’t” infiltrate your thinking.

So think of all the things you want to do. Then think of all the excuses you’ve made as to why you can’t, think of all the things that people have told you and then throw it all away and get back down to the root of what and why you want to do it.

Here’s the hardest part. Now take the leap, invest the positive energy and whatever resources are necessary and do it.

Use positive thought to your advantage and leave the negative thoughts to those who will use it to their own disadvantage.

How are you going to use your positive energy today?
