Positive thinking is a mental and emotional attitude that focuses on the bright side of life and expects positive results.

A positive person anticipates happiness, health and success, and believes he or she can overcome any obstacle and difficulty.

Positive thinking is not accepted by everyone. Some, consider it as nonsense, and at people who follow it, but there is a growing number of people, who accept positive thinking as a fact, and believe in its effectiveness.

It seems that this subject is gaining popularity, as evidenced by the many books, lectures and courses about it.

To use it in your life, you need more than just to be aware of its existence. You need to adopt the attitude of positive thinking in everything you do.

How Positive Thinking Works

The following story illustrates how this power works:

Allan applied for a new job, but he didn’t believe he will get it, since his self-esteem was low, and he considered himself as a failure and unworthy of success.

He had a negative attitude toward himself, and therefore, believed that the other applicants were better and more qualified than him.

Allan’s mind was occupied with negative thoughts and fears concerning the job, for the whole week preceding the job . He actually, anticipated failure.

On the day of the interview, he got up late, and to his horror he discovered that the shirt he planned to wear was dirty, and the other one needed ironing. As it was already too late, he went out wearing a wrinkled shirt and without eating breakfast.

1. Argue for/against the following statement:
All of your problems can be resolved if you implement positive thinking.

Vahid Kalhor

In my perspective, as qoute depicts we can change every conflictss and tough situation

Vahid Kalhor

In my perspective, as qoute depicts we can change every conflictss and tough situation to great moments by being optimistic.I beleive that the way we look things the way they happen. If we take an optimistic approach in dealing with variety of situations, we will suffer less pressure and become more successful than being pessimistic.

Dr. Hariri

2. Photo Scanning Activity:
This person is such a pessimist.

Vahid Kalhor

As we see in the picture the man looks worry, seemingly he is thinking about a subject which is far_fetched to achieve, therefore he has lost his hope and courage and pessimistically is thinking about the consequence of it.

Sasan

This guy is staring at one point without any smile and determination. Also, his eyes are not open enough and it divulges that he has lost his confidence.

Dr. Hariri

3. You must prepare yourself for one of the questions (randomly) in response to the audio/video file embedded into this post.

Vahid Kalhor

4.How can we make progress in our life by thinking positively?

5. How do positive thinkers deal with the negative sides of their life?

Dr. Hariri

⛔ I corrected your question number. It was “3”. Please be more careful about numbering your questions chronologically ordered.

Sasan

6. Could you cast light on the difference between wishful thinking and positive thinking?

fatemeh2

I think positive thinking helps people to seek for any positive and beneficial aspects of their lives in order to enjoy their lives and be successful. So what they are doing is real and those aspects exist, they just find them. However, wishful thinking is not based on facts and it seems it is more imaginary and unreal. I think this way of thinking has more futuristic view and can help ones in the future than in their present times, because they imagine some thing which may not exist and should be created.

My favorite topic for the next session is attraction law.

Dr. Hariri
