Why Don’t You Focus On Positive Thoughts?

Emmet Fox said, “You must not under any pretence allow your mind to dwell on any thought that is not positive, constructive, optimistic, kind.” It is hard to do, but you have the power to focus your mind on positive thoughts. It is better than negative thoughts. No matter what is going on in your life, it is going to go away. You can’t stop things from happening. But you can control your own thoughts. You can control what you think about. Remember, you are what you think about. So if you want things to change, you must focus on positive thoughts.

Don’t forget that every thought you think is designing your life, is creating your future. You can create a better future if you focus on positive thoughts, if you focus on what you want for yourself, if you stay creative, if you do not do anything that is against you values, if you respect yourself, and if you do not let anything negative stop you from chasing your dream.

Ask yourself, Is there anything to be gained by thinking negative thoughts? Do not dwell on them. Focus on love. As Emmet Fox put it, “If you could love enough, you could be the most powerful person in the world.” Because love is powerful. Love is life. To drive negative thoughts away from your life, you must commit yourself to your life.
