Many people believe that our thoughts do not have the power to influence our reality, but this is only what our subconscious is accustomed to telling us. In reality, if we change our mindset, and practice thinking positively, we can create the conditions to achieve exactly what we desire. Positive thinking, therefore, helps us to attract happiness, energy, and calm towards ourselves. In his book, The Power of Positive Thinking, Norman Vincent Peale explains this theory, describing how we must re-educate our mind to visualise images based on optimism, hope, trust, and love. If we believe with conviction, and if we carry out simple daily tasks to strengthen our positive thoughts, a happier and more fulfilling life is within reach.
