The power of thinking positive is a very important but unappreciated tool. As a quick demonstration, let us do a simple exercise. I want you to give yourself a big goofy smile right away. It does not matter if you are not in the mood, or if there are people around you or if you just feel silly. Just for the sake of this exercise, give yourself a big smile.
Now that you have smiled, did you notice what happened? You have to admit that you felt good for that brief second or two regardless of what your mood was or what situation you are in. Go ahead and try it at any time and the result will be the same.
That is the power of thinking positive. Your brain is so subconsciously trained to feel good when you smile. You smile when you are happy but you are also happy when you smile. I just proved it to you even if it was just for a second or two.
That does not mean that positive thinking is walking around smiling all day but it is the ability to harness only the good emotions in your life. The most common mistakes or negative feelings that people indulge in are,
• Why me? – Thinking of the past, trying to analyze why things went wrong.
• Comparing yourself to others – This is the worst thing you can do.
• Using unhappy situations to be a loner – Loneliness is the worst enemy of positive thinking and the best friend to negative thoughts.
One needs to practice positive thinking at all times in his or her life by constantly affirming thoughts of what they want in life rather than thoughts of what he or she has missed out on.

Positive Thinking Power
Comments: I very much agree with this article. The power of positive thinking is important for everyone. Especially if you are suffering from panic attacks. Changing the way you think will change your life. I know when I was suffering from panic attacks I was negative and very much a pessimist. Back then I would’ve rather thought the worst just so I wouldn’t be disappointed. At the time, I thought I was doing myself a favor. Now I know better. I was limiting my life. Not a great way to live. Now I think positively and live a much happier fulfilled life. The more you can do it, the more it will help you. Don’t be discouraged if it takes you some time to reverse your habits. Most likely you’ve been thinking negatively for years. Look at is as every time you replace a negative thought with a positive one, you’re diluting your old programming and replacing it with the new positive ones. This is a very powerful panic attack treatment.
