We live in the wired age. The digital age. The internet age. Connected every single minute of every single day. 24/7, online – all the time.
We have the infinite knowledge of billions of individuals, of millions of generations past, of countless seekers and teachers available at our fingertips whenever we want. Not to mention, things like Words with Friends and Angry Birds.
So with this enormous amount of wisdom available to us whenever we want, why are some of the most frequently searched for items “positive thinking tips and tricks”?
Frankly, the sheer number of websites talking positive thinking tips, or ideas or quotes is absolutely mesmerizing. Literally, hundreds of millions of pages online, all filled with information about this kind of thought.
This positive thinking idea is on the minds of a lot of people. I mean, a lot of people. But there is something really strange about the idea of positive thinking online.
Why Positive Thinking Is Bad For You
We live in a negative thinking world. Maybe we don’t want it to be that way, but many of our societies teach negative thinking as a life value in the guise of pessimism or pragmatism. We teach our young people to be afraid. Our news programs are filled with sad and angry stories, our TV programs are filled with hate and murder and lies and all around ugliness, and those are just the “comedies”.
The strange thing is that the Universe is not negative in nature. You don’t have to prove you deserve a wonderfully positive life; that is your birthright.
We are taught negativity; we are not born with it.
Sounds sad. And in fact it is kind of sad. For instance, searching through Google for this phrase
“why positive thinking is good for you”
yields around 209 results.
But searching for this phrase
“why positive thinking is bad for you”
brings back around 22,200 results.
That’s over 10,000 times more results for pages, articles, blog posts talking about positive thinking being bad for you. Now, truth be told, those are not huge numbers of webpages, but the idea that 10,000 times more information is available talking about the negative aspects of positive thinking provides an interesting viewpoint of our society.
Can Positive Thinking Change Your Life?
Of course it can.
Just the same way as negative thinking can change your life. But that kind of change is not going to happen overnight. Well, truth be told, it is going to happen overnight, but you might not notice it right away.
Our world as a whole, drip, drip drips negative thoughts and ideas into our lives, so it just stands to reason that if we want to reinforce positive thinking in our lives that we use the same sort of tactic.
Because a single step, a single thought at a time is a remarkably effective way to change almost anything, and changing negative thinking to positive thinking isn’t any different.
