The Power of Positive Thinking

“Defeat is a state of mind; No one is ever defeated until defeat has been accepted as a reality.”

“If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.”

“As you think you shall become”

–Bruce Lee

Think about the importance of the quality of our thoughts. The way we think shapes our attitude and our actions. If you think positively, you will surround yourself with the right energy. This will propel you to get to your destination faster than you ever thought you could.

If you think negatively, you will constantly inhabit a negative space. This space is tempting because it can allow you to avoid what you don’t want. However, this safety is false. Negativity, no matter how comforting in the short term, will not push you to perform to the best of your ability.

The right outlook can change everything. This is called the law of attraction–you envision yourself getting to where you want to go, and by doing this you get there.

For example, when our fitness editor and founder of Dogpound LLC, Kirk Myers was trying to lose weight, he constantly envisioned himself healthier. He put pictures of his fitness inspirations up on his fridge door. This turned the kitchen from a place of temptation to a place of support. Simple tricks like this boost motivation and turn positive thinking into a reality. Before long, Kirk not only lost all his excess fat, but also became a fitness guru.

Kirk now goes above and beyond for his clients to help them take advantage of the positive thinking that enabled his own transformation. The key to this is maintaining a positive mindset. Kirk helps client after client by infecting them with his contagious attitude. This powerful motivational tool not only makes his clients successful, but fuels Kirk on his own journey. As Kirk’s success continues to show, whether it is in the gym, wealth or in relationships, positive thinking can push towards your full potential.
