Will Smith on Staying Positive

Will Smith talks about the book, The Power of Positive Thinking, by Norman Vincent Peale and how it has helped his career. I also wanted to highlight a book that has really helped me. It is a book by Dale Carnegie called, How to Stop Worrying and Start Living. One of my favorite parts of this book is a story Dale tells about a sick woman. This woman was told she would be bed ridden for a year and thought it was the worst news possible. Her neighbor said to her, “You think now that spending a year in bed will be a tragedy. But it won’t be. You will have time to think and get acquainted with yourself. You will make more spiritual growth in these next few months than you have made during all your previous life.” Those words from her neighbor changed her attitude. She enjoyed reading, listening to music and meeting with friends. She talked about how it was the best year of her life. She made the most out of what she thought was a terrible situation. I often think of that story when I get down about things going on in my life and it helps to pick me back up.

    Positive thinking and visualization can help you to attract your dream into your reality. Focused, persistent effort will take you to places you have never dreamed of. But, don’t forget about one important thing; Positive thinking will not solve your “problems”. Action will. You have to do it. Otherwise it will just be a dream and not your reality. So, whatever it is; go for it.
