Yes... but how?
Sometimes we may think negatively about certain situations, specially if they appear to be problems or we are unsure about their outcome.
However, using positive thinking in everyday life is easier than you believe.
All that you need to do is to learn to replace your negative thoughts for positive ones, one thought at a time.
You can find loads of opportunities daily in which to apply positive thinking.
The key to use positive thinking in everyday life is to be aware of when negative thoughts come to you, and rather than running with the negative emotional response they create, choose to focus on a thought that makes you feel good.
Just be aware of your thoughts. Breathe deeply. Resolve to replace the negative thoughts for positive ones.
In "Infinite Possibilities" Mike Dooley explains how to use our thoughts and emotions to uncover our limiting beliefs, so that we can use our thoughts to create the life we want.
Examples of when you can use positive thinking everyday
The following are possible (and common) scenarios of everyday life in which you can choose positive thinking:
Although the thinking shift given in the examples above may appear "too easy" or even silly to you, it works. With each thought you have you are literally re-creating your present and your future anew.
If you are a Christian you may want to have a way to use positive thinking in everyday life that combines your Christian beliefs.
In that case, you may like to check Norman Vincent Peale's "The power of positive thinking", which is a Christian version of positive thinking.
The key to use positive thinking in everyday life is to be aware of when negative thoughts are developing in your mind.
Otherwise it is really easy to slip into "default mode" and react negatively.
A good book
You may find it easier to apply positive thinking in everyday life with an inspiring book on positive thinking that you can carry with you (Joe Vitale's "Life's missing instruction manual" is a good one).
You can read a few pages while you queue at the supermarket, in the public transport, whenever you have to wait, or when you have a break at work.
Reading a few pages of a positive thinking book every day will make it easier for you to maintain a positive attitude.
