I personally believe in the power of the positive. Why? Because I have made it my life’s purpose to study mankind, and in fine-tuning my study I have also become a student of success.

It is a fact: that which is positive ultimately outlives and outlasts that which is negative. Good conquers evil. Love destroys hate. Peace reigns supreme over war. Positivity nullifies the power of negativity.

Oh there will still be those who will seek to destroy. But this must not move us. We must stand firm and strong on the foundations of our positive belief.

History confirms that there is a law of sowing and reaping in place. This law cannot be broken. Those who seek to sow destruction will be destroyed. However, those who sow positivity will ultimately reap a positive life that will have a positive impact on the entire world.

When you consider the 2nd World War, when the free world faced one of its most harrowing hours, there was one man who stood out amongst them all. His name? Sir Winston Churchill.

For all his fine qualities, he was not a faultless man. He had, throughout his career, made some terrible errors of judgment. And the empire that he represented had committed some horrific blunders when dealing with the vastness of the empire that they had created.

But that aside, when the darkness of despotic government sought to ensnare Europe and all its surrounds, there was one man who stood firm as he gave resounding speeches that stirred the hearts of the oppressed multitudes. He made it very clear that he would never give up until freedom was won for all.

Where there was darkness he saw light. Where there was negativity he could only visualize positivity. Where there was fear there was demonstrated faith. Where there was doubt there was supplied hope.

It was that spirit of determination that gripped the hearts of men and women, both in his own homeland and amongst the allies that eventually, after many years of struggle, brought about the crushing defeat of the enemy.

We too can replace the negative with the positive in our lives by simply determining in our hearts that it will be so.

Here are five keys to help you:

1. Be Positive

“To be positive is not to ignore the presence of negativity in our world, but rather to believe in the power of the positive and in the knowledge that that positive power has the greatest and long-lasting energy to override any negative power in the final hour.” – Peter G. James Sinclair

It’s a fact. There is an abundance of negativity that fills our world. Turn on the television, read the newspaper or simply listen to some of the conversations in your local supermarket, and you will find little positive being discussed.

But the great news is that you and I do not have to partake of the morsels of negativity that are passed our way. There is another menu available, and if you eat of that you will develop into a far more healthier and wealthier individual.

Feed on positive materials. Surround yourself with positive friends. Submit your ears to the wisdom of positive mentors, and allow only positive statements to flow from your mouth.

By all means deal with the negative, but always keep your major focus on the positive. Do it all your life and you will live well and long.

2. Be Positive About Who You Are

“What I must do, is all that concerns me, not what the people think. It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps in perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Never allow another to rain on your parade. Be confident in whom you are. Know this, that there is only one you and that you have been created for a purpose. 
What other people think is totally irrelevant.

You must always be true to yourself and to your conscience, for it is you that you must live with for the rest of your days.

Be grateful for your peculiar gifts that make you different to everyone else around you. You are ‘a unique’ and that means simply one thing: you are extremely special.

3. Be Positive About What You Do

“Let every man be occupied, and occupied in the highest employment of which his nature is capable, and die with the consciousness that he has done his best.” – Sydney Smith

There are no small tasks. There are only those who do tasks with small minds.

Approach every task with a big attitude, and that is the attitude that you should always carry with you as you continue to discover the gift that lies within you.

Not all of us can arrive at our point of self-discovery immediately, but we can make the journey a worthy training ground by performing every task that we
 undertake with the spirit of excellence.

The development of that habit will definitely prepare you for your greatest hour when it finally arrives.

4. Be Positive About Where You’re Going

“Who shoots at the midday sun, though he be sure he shall never hit the mark, yet as sure he is he shall shoot higher than who aims but at a bush.” – Sir Philip Sidney

Live your life with purpose. Have a goal. Write it down. For if you have a target in place you will be more likely to hit the bull’s-eye. Develop the ability to dream on a regular basis. Make it a pattern of your personal path. Dream big. Live big. Believe big.

The bigger you dream, the bigger you will become. Those who choose to expand their mind with a dream will ultimately expand their lives.

First the dream, then the goal, then the plan plus applied action. Finally – the reality.

5. Be Positive About How You’re Going To Get There

“Every citizen of our state ought to apply himself to that one thing to which his genius most inclines him.” – Plato

When you have discovered the what, it is then time to plan the how.

How do you do that?

Start asking yourself some questions:

  • What do I want to do?
  • How can I do it?
  • Who can help me get it done?
  • What do I need to help me get it done?
  • Where can I do it best?
  • How much will it cost to do it?
  • Where will I get the money?
  • How long before I can earn it back?

Set goals. Put in place the tasks that you must perform to achieve those goals. Put a date on it. Spend time talking to a mentor about your plan.

And while you’re at it always speak positively about your dream.
