Positive Thinking- Positive Results

People who embrace positive thinking are capable of accomplishing tasks that seem impossible because they believe in solutions.  When you believe you can do something difficult – and you succeed – many doors open for you.

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge fan of The Star Wars movies.  I have them all and my family and I have watched them many times.  When George Lucas succeeded in making these films, there were those who said the special effects he wanted to create hadn’t ever been done before and couldn’t be done. He decided to create a company and produce those ‘impossible’ special effects.

They became a source of revenue to help underwrite his other projects.  He was able to produce merchandising tie-ins to his movies, thus bringing in another revenue stream to fund his movie making.  His confidence in doing the difficult has also made a huge impact on other movie makers and a whole new generation of movie goers.  George Lucas has dictated for several decades the essential broad notion of what cinema truly is. People who think big attract big people to them.  If you want to achieve big things, you need to become a positive thinker. Big thinkers who make things happen also create possibilities for others.  Being around those who have the same ideas and goals as you is what you need to succeed.   You can’t help but become more confident and think bigger when you’re around positive thinkers.

I am fortunate to have the opportunity to associate with some very profound people where my work is concerned.  These colleagues possess the same attributes I want to emulate. Dave Blanchard, Ty Bennett, Jason Hewlett, Sam Silverstein and the late Art Berg are men I am honored to not only have shared the stage with, but personally as well.  That saying “You are only as good as the people you hang with” is so true.  Encircle yourself with people who have integrity and who are honorable and you will want to possess these same attributes.

When you surround yourself with a team that makes you better, you want you to be better.  My home team is Shon and the kids.  We are a team and we each have a part in making our family work as a whole.  When one is gone or hurt, the others pitch in.  Together, we make our dreams a reality.

I have a team at work and we operate in the same way.  Each holds different responsibilities that make us successful.  When one is overwhelmed, the others help out. When we do this, we find we succeed and reap the rewards from our combined efforts.  Not always monetarily benefits, but acknowledgments recognizing our hard work mean so much to us.

No matter what your profession, positive thinking can help broaden your horizons and encourage you to dream bigger dreams.  You must be able to picture what you want in your own mind and in the minds of others.  If you embrace your dreams, you put yourself in a position to achieve them.

Positive thinkers believe they can succeed.  The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible.
