Think Tranquility

Small steps... that can make a big difference today

Your Magical Mind

The human mind is the most powerful thing in creation and even experts are baffled by its mysterious ways...

But for us free and fresh thinking types, this is exciting stuff. Because what it means is - there are NO limits to what we can achieve.  

The other night I was watching one of the Harry Potter films - The Half Blood Prince. Have you seen it?

Well if you haven't there is a scene where Harry puts a potion called "liquid luck" into his friend Ron's drink. Ron's about to play his first ever quadditch match for Gryffindor and is scared stiff. Everyone's laughing at him and he believes he's going to be a complete embarrassment for his house team.

As soon as Ron drinks the liquid luck though he transforms into the best player on the pitch and is named "man of the match".

But it turns out later on that Harry never put anything in the drink. He just let Ron think he did.

Either way, the result was still the same...

Ron believed he was going to have a great game due to drinking the "liquid luck".... so he did. No problem. In fact it was the best game he had EVER had and everyone was amazed by his performance.

Doesn't that tell you how powerful and magical your own mind truly is?

Whatever we tell ourselves becomes our way of thinking.... which influences our behaviour, choices and actions. But most importantly of all the results we're creating and experiencing in any given moment.

And this is not just my opinion. This is a psychological fact known as the "placebo effect".

In short... every outcome you could ever possibly imagine, good or bad - you can physically make happen.

You have that choice.

No "hocus pocus magic" is required because your mind is already magical and more advanced than anything else in creation.

Isn't that an empowering idea in itself? The fact that you already have everything you need inside of you to be, do or have anything you want?

You yourself could potentially be walking and talking "liquid luck" if you choose to believe it.

So play about with this concept today and see how you can apply it in your life. Perhaps in a work situation or even just walking down the street.

Imagine yourself as already having achieved the outcome and pretend to be that person. Even if it's only for a half hour.

It's so much fun so try it for yourself and see what happens 🙂

Love and Light,

Holly xx

Although I think positive thinking can be really good, I once did a one-day training seminar about preventing stress, and he had an interesting take on all this. He said that positive FEELING is more effective than positive thinking. So instead of thinking thoughts like “Everything is going to be alright” but secretly feeling like they won’t be, you try to picture positive things in your mind, and you think about things that make you feel good. By intentionally getting yourself into a positive emotional state, you are then in a better state to take positive action. What do you… Read more »

There was a peacefulness to this article. I enjoyed it very much. The words were soothing and still made you think. I like how you jumped into the difficulty of positive thinking as well. Helps fight the resistance some people have out there for positive thinking. Your use of successful people who utilize positive thinking is brilliant as well. Good job

I actually wrote a post about positive thinking myself recently, but I think yours is better. Beautifully written. And you are spot on. What we think is everything. Every action we take or don’t take is based on our thoughts, either conscious or unconscious. You have a very interesting and inspiring website. All the best to you.

This a good post! We definitely need that – positive thinking. It’s such a simple and effective concept, that positive thinking creates a positive life, yet hard to do at times. Most of us have thoughts flash across our minds every day and it directly influence how we feel and what we do. If you spend your day concentrating on positive things, good things will happen.I don’t believe people are born negative thinkers. It is essential to keep a positive mind as it is the basic to happier life! Thanks for sharing and I am looking forward to reading more… Read more »

I do agree with what you wrote in this post as negative thoughts will only bring anger, hatred and etc. i always believe life is very short and we should make use of our time and energy to do something meaningful. Positive thinking will lead to positive energy and eventually do positive things to help our mankind. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Holly,

I loved the post. The power of positive thinking really does have a lot to do with manifesting the results you want to see in your life. Your content is easy to read because it’s so conversational. I also checked out your about page and I love your personal touch and your story behind it all. And that’s how it should be! So great job!

Keep up the good work!

Hi Holly. In real life surprises and reality of positive thinking, positive filings and all interfaced names of synonyms, became another effective way for “legal” lie. It is easy to see how this approach make all society became numb on value of information. And I am on this side of cheated “pane”. I’m numb to any positive influence from word around me. And how this can be very destructive in life on long range, I already know. I have collected in my life “facts” which will prove my opinion on topics. I want and desire to change this. It is… Read more »

Wow, what a great post.

I completely see what you are saying here. I think the power of positive thinking is very strong in keeping someone well balanced and happy. I’ve definitely been a negative thinker in the past and always initially see the worst in things or people – I’ve now learnt to stop and rethink my initial thoughts to more positive ones and it does change how you feel.

I’m still training myself and very much look forward to reading more posts!

Positive thinking can be more challenging because people are more attracted to what can be “seen.” Internal skill is underestimated because it’s not something that can be “seen.” But what’s behind all these successful people are not something that is “external” but “internal.” And it may take a long period to be disciplined in positive thinking. But it’s so worth it. There’s so much power to it. I wish more people can see the evidence of it and believe in it.

It is interesting that you mention Jim Carrey because he is in a wonderful movie called The Yes Man. I have seen the movie and read the book and since then I have tried to say yes to more opportunities because that is part of positive thinking. Saying no all the time can be a huge downer, but saying yes all the time actually makes you feel happier. And of course it opens you up to new experiences you would never have if you said no. I have been trying for about the last 5 years to be more positive… Read more »

You know, Recently I was going through a bit of a hard phase, I had been in my new job for about 6 months, and it was my first job coming from McDonald’s, so it was like a goal I had in my life. But when I started it just wasn’t what I was thinking at all… This brought me down so bad, I was furious that I was given this good opportunity but saw no future in it as I didn’t care enough to get promotions and such. I then started thinking about alternatives, like having my own business,… Read more »

I can’t agree enough. Life is about 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it. Choosing to react positively in a bummer situation will improve your outlook on life. I have been working on cutting negativity out of my life. If someone has a negative personality, I try to avoid associating with them. If I catch myself complaining, I refocus my thought on positive things rather than negative. When I really work at it, I notice a distinct improvement in my general temperament.

Hi Holly,
Thank you for this great article. You are absolutely right. Sometimes, we can’t change the external conditions, but we have the power to decide how to think and feel about them. And that changes everything. Nevertheless, it is not easy not to be overwhelmed by negative emotions when we experience some difficult situations. But this is just the matter of exercise, like everything else in life. The key is to control our mind because it is the only thing that we can actually control in life.
Great website. I will come back.
All the best.
Maja

I believe in positive thinking. But my thoughts patterns from my youth have created a realist out of me. Sometimes I just feel like I’m lying to myself if I try to always be the optimist because I know nothing ever works out perfectly. My husband gives me grief about it because he feels that I bring him down.

Hi Holly

Thanks for bringing this topic to light. It is very hard to stay positive in the negative world that we live in. Almost everywhere you go there are murders and crime of some sort. Even in your personal life there will always be people that will do anything to make your life as negative as they can.

Hi there Holly, My entreprenurial journey is actually the result of me thinking and acting positively. Several years ago, I was coop up in my own narrow-mindedness and that really drove me downhill. I knew I had to do something before I lose interest in life so I started to identify the things that made me think negatively. I removed them from my surrounding presence and replace with the things that make me happy instead. Gradually, I started to form positive thoughts and now with my online business up and running, I have never felt more motivated in my life… Read more »

Every time we turn on the news we are all swamped by negativity. We also carry the burdens of negative programming that have been with us with since we were children. This post was great because it helps the reader to focus on the power of positive thinking. It is very easy to ridicule the positive thinking movement as woo woo nonsense especially after all of the hype that the movie The Secret brought to this industry but this post discusses the importance of thinking positively in a way that is really going to benefit the reader. I really enjoyed… Read more »

This is such a great post! Positive thinking has such a powerful influence on our lives. I believe it effects more than just our state of mind. It seems to have an effect on the world around us. Everything in life goes so much smoother when you have a positive mindset!

The most difficult part is staying positive through difficult times. Although I firmly believe everyone has it in them!

I think positive thinking it’s a skill, what that means is that, if you practice it consistently, you eventually be better at.
To see the benefits you need to be consistently, and that’s why Some people think this is bananas… Because they give up almost immediately.
Thanks for the article, hope everything go positive in your life.

Thank you for this nice article! I definitely believe in positive thinking and how it brings about higher productivity because if we practice positive thinking by choosing better thoughts and how to see beyond the surface like lessons behind the failure, we learn not to stall ourselves at failure and move on more quickly! Thank you for giving such an objective viewpoint on positive thinking, can’t wait to see the methods you use to spur yourself towards positive thinking!

I have always believed in the power of positive thinking. My mother always used to say, “You get what you expect,” meaning, if you expect to fail, for example, then that’s exactly what will happen! I also believe in the power of the universe, “The Secret” as it was popularly called a few years ago when that book came out. I believe in deliberate manifestation – using your mind and positive thoughts to literally manifest (make real) the circumstances you’re desiring. Wonderful article, and wonderful website. Thank you so much!

The video is eye opening. I guess we really don’t realize how powerful thoughts are and our bodies are 60% water. Kind of freaky. The chain of events that positive thinking starts is amazing and at least worth trying. I do think that it’s not our problems that are the trouble it’s our perception of the problem. I know that implementing positive thinking is an ongoing proposition that gets easier but how long does it take to start to see a difference? Nothing worth having comes easily and positive thinking isn’t any difference. I would like to see some more… Read more »

Hi Holly,

First off, I’m a huge believer in the power of positive thinking. I haven’t yet mastered the art, but it’s a work in progress and I definitely see the results in my life when I do get my thoughts on the right wavelength for a period of time.

You’re right, it is a habit and not one that’s easily adopted. As humans it’s in our nature to think negatively far easily than positively for some strange reason. Thanks for the great post. It’s inspiring.

I definitely believe in and promote positive thinking; it’s one of the most important things that many more people should be putting into practice. I wouldn’t even be where I am right now in life if it wasn’t for a lot of time and effort on my part of trying to keep a positive mindset. Our world nowadays can make things easy for you to get distracted, take the focus away from your priorities, and next thing you know you’re welcoming toxic thoughts that weren’t even there before. It’s a blessing that people have resources such as your website that… Read more »

I am generally a positive thinking person, and try to always think positively. And as you say, sometimes we get a lot of crap thrown at us, and that messes things up. It might rise my stress level a tad, but I always try to remember the positives in my life and not to dwell on the bad things that can happen. You can’t change anything that happens in life, might as well accept and just move on with, and learn.

I definitely am a believer in positive psychology! As I often philosophize about the human mind, I’ve come to realize that the mind is everything! If you feed it positive thoughts, I will more often than not be in a more positive state. I find that when I’m in a more positive state, I get more done, get BETTER work done and just enjoy my overall daily experience more 🙂 And while I have also hit rock bottom, I know it is much easier said than done. But I think that is when positive psychology is most important. Gotta believe… Read more »

I read your post with great interest. I’m a long time self-help junkie. I’ve heard of Shakti Gawain, but not Glenn Harold…so thanks for the introduction.

It’s so easy to be positive when things are flowing and going great. Another story when you lose your job or your spouse up and leaves, etc., … But no matter, everyone has their own story or version of hell. Personally, I’m so much better at staying positive when I meditate on a regular basis. Without it, all the other tools don’t seem to work as well. Thanks for your great post.

Hey positive thinking was my second name all the time! I have so much common with your article. Since I learned the benefits of being positive and using my mind to change my current state – I truly believe that it does help. However there is more to it, you need to literally rebuild your mind and energy, consciously, and only then it will truly affect you!
But otherwise your article is awesome!

I do believe in the power of positive thinking. What first introduced me to this idea was the famous book “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill. The book teaches you how to discard all of the negative things that don’t allow you create a life of riches. It fits in perfectly with what your article was trying to explain.

Good post. I think positive thinking is very important. People that don’t tend to think positive think that it would be a waste of time to do so. They think it’s just all make believe and that you are not seeing the facts. But in reality, I think it can be seeing tha facts. It makes you look at situations from a different angle and it is always nice to see a positive outcome in something that may seem like a dead end to many people.

I agree with you – a positive outlook in life is the key to consistent happiness. But as the ups and downs are inevitable, we cannot Pollyanna our way through it also. I believe learning how to cope with difficult situations and emotions is also taking the positive route through life, instead of just shutting off everything and focusing on positive affirmations. Thank for this inspiring reminder!
