So often we are caught up in the negativity of the media surrounding us, swept away by the bad that is constantly highlighted and blinded by the events that make this world out to seem so disappointing. Sometimes, it feels almost impossible to take a step back and reflect on all the love and goodness that fills this world to the brim, and this is exactly why people have such a hard time finding true happiness today.

There is immense power in positive thinking, more than we will ever be able to truly comprehend. Our brains, working together with our spirits, have the ability to create the lives we have always dreamed of, but only if we channel the right energy throughout them. If you think good things will happen, they will. If you dream you can, you will. If you begin to send out positive vibes, you will actually begin to attract positive experiences and people like a magnificent magnet.

It's not an easy task right off the bat. It takes a lot of conscious effort to control your thoughts in such a way that you are filtering out the negative and channeling in the positive. It's important to remember that you cannot control everything that happens to you or in the world, but you can control how you handle those experiences. Good or bad, there's a wrong and right way to approach situations in regards to your mental and spiritual nature. If something bad happens to you, to a loved one, or somewhere out in the world, it does not mean the world is a terrible place that's out to get you and everyone else. The world is actually in your favor, you just have to learn how to create the path for the positive experiences to flow to you.

It is much easier to find happiness when you are freely allowing happiness to find its way to you. If you are constantly stuck on a bad memory or moment and never cease to dwell on it, your happiness will never be able to find a breathable opening to get to you. If you're having a hard day or period of time in life, let yourself indulge in the things that you truly enjoy, whether that's reading a great mystery book, hiking the highest peaks in the United States, training for your first big race, or adopting a new pet, you have to do the things that make you feel amazing.

There is immense power in positive thinking, more than we will ever be able to truly comprehend. As soon as we allow ourselves to feel only the most positive of thoughts, we will begin to radiate true happiness like we never have before. Good things happen to those who believe that they will with all of their heart.
