( Thinking is the true business of life, power is the result, writes Charles F. Haanel. It is estimated we think somewhere between 60,000 to 80,000 thoughts per day. Sadly, for too many, the vast majority of these thoughts are of a negative variety. I sometimes sit and observe one’s thoughts. How, you may ask, does one ‘observe’ one’s thoughts? By gauging one’s actions!

A person’s actions spring from their thinking. I know what you’re thinking because I observe what you’re doing! Thinking and doing form the dynamic duo of the individual who rights themselves, stands tall, and assumes a dominant position.

Consider these three powerful maxims from right-thinking.

Right-Thinking is a Habit

The sharp thorn often produces delicate roses, writes the Greek philosopher, Ovid. Habits can indeed begin as sharp thorns. With time, however, roses can come of thorns. What habits shape you at present? How did you end up believing you could achieve you aim in life? Answer: you ‘thought’ your way to such a conclusion. A single thought entered the domain of your life and, before long, the thought crystallized into habit. The problem is, it was a bad-thinking habit. Right-thinking is a habit, too. But its destination is profoundly different.

All thinking begins as habit. These are the habits that will shape intention, desire and results. One strong habit will wipe out ten negative habits on any given day. Positive thinking illumines the dark. But it must be concise and consistent.

Right-Thinking Creates a Positive Disposition

Albert Einstein was once asked what was wrong with men today. Einstein thought for a moment, cleared his throat, and said: Men simply don’t think. More to the point: you cannot think positive and negative at the same time; the two are antithetical. You are either going to be a pitiful thinker or a powerful thinker – but you can’t be both. Either one will dominate your disposition.

To be sure, positive thinking requires much more work than negative thinking. It’s easy to think negative about any situation. Just ask the millions upon millions who do it every day.

Positive thinking requires conscious thinking. When conscious thinking happens, the entire face is lit up, the psychological atmosphere is charged; one begins to feel good and look good; one is filled with a radiance that brings solace and happiness to everyone around.

Right-Thinking Orders the Future

Right-thinking can literally shape your future. Your future self will either be a glowing portrait or a dreadful picture. You get to decide. A person can reinvent themselves by thinking right about themselves.

That a man can change himself, improve himself, reinvent himself, control his environment and master his own destiny is the conclusion of every mind open to the power of right-thinking, writes the eighteenth-century scholar Christian Larsen.

What’s your future? What does it look like? What does it taste like? What does it feel like? Only you can answer these questions. Only you can create this dynamic future. It will happen only when you dare to begin its construction with positive, victorious thinking.

Today, you can begin a program of right-thinking. Write affirmations and recite them daily. Read positive literature. Spend quiet time alone distilling your positivity. Surround yourself with positive-thinking people.

Most of all, when you find yourself under assault by wrong-thinking, think good, solid thoughts. That is the basis of right-thinking!
