(ThyBlackMan.com) The world is not short on coal, gas, food or clothes as much as it is short on positive people. We need more POSITIVE in the world, more people who will open themselves to their experiences and resist the urge to extract negative.

In short, we need more people who will think positive. Here are five such ways a positive person thinks.

Positive People Think Right

Positive people engage in right-thinking. Someone much wiser than myself said, That a man can change himself, improve himself, recreate himself, control his environment and master his own destiny is the conclusion of every mind wide-awake to the power of right-thinking.

At bottom, we are what we think. Every obstacle we face in life can be overcome but it must be done with right-thinking. Don’t think wrong! Think right!

The opposite of right-thinking is wrong-thinking: thinking disease as opposed to health; thinking weakness instead of strength; thinking lack versus abundance. Deeds are the result of thinking; you can trace the end of what you do to the beginning of your thinking.

My heart is pure. My intention is clean. My thoughts, words and deeds are positive.

Positive People Think from a Place of Power

Powerful people think powerful thoughts. Joel Osteen of the Lakewood Church in Houston says, You can be pitiful or you can be powerful, but you cannot be both.

You cannot think from a place of weakness and expect powerful results. So we do not have to throw pity parties when we are conscious of our power.

You must always know who you are and whose you and this kind of knowledge will only come from one deeply enmeshed in a relationship with a Higher Power. In other words, we get our power from a Higher Power. Otherwise, we are nothing more than dangling masses of human protoplasm.

Positive People Think Above the Circumstances

People positive are not defeated by what they are going through. People do not really live under their potential, they live under their circumstances. By that I mean people have been held down by the burdens of living – bills, the job, wayward children – that they give up their efforts at continuous improvement.

We were not born to live under the circumstances; we are created to soar above our greatest challenges. Continuous effort, not strength or intelligence, is the key to unlocking our potential, writes Sir Winston Churchill.

Positive people know this principle intuitively; they take it as a maxim that the more positive we think, the greater the positive outcomes possible.

Positive People Think Holistically

Positive people holistically as opposed to compartmentally. To ‘compart’ is to divide into parts; ‘mental’ is mind. We think with divided minds; placing our lives into neat little compartments. The positive individual, though, thinks of his or her life from a holistic perspective. We think from a place of body, mind and spirit well-being. Such thinking places us in greater harmony with our immediate surroundings and the universe.

It only requires one to undergo a holistic experience, something Jochen Zeitz candidly describes as looking at Mount Kenya in the morning.

Positive People Think Compassionately

In our society, compassion is quickly becoming a lost virtue. Bullying is up on all levels of our society, including at highest office. Positive people think against this grain; positive people always think compassionately and always regard the well-being of others more than themselves.

This is because a positive person has attained a type of peace within and this allows them to consider the needs of others before their own. Positive people sense the truth of the great poet Rumi who writes, If you keep your heart open through everything, your pain can become your greatest ally.

We need more people who will develop a positive from a negative.
