Think and grow rich by Napoleon Hill is a great read that tells you a lot about how you can use thinking to do, be and achieve what ever your heart desires. The concept is that belief can shift, change and alter reality. Creating miracles through perseverance and a determination that comes from mental prowess and cultivating a winning attitude. The phenomenon of positive thinking is not a new concept and yet implementing its power into our daily lives is still a foreign concept to most mere mortals!

How can we become better at positive thinking? How can we easily shift our focus on the positive? The answer is very simple, focus on how you feel. Try to keep adjusting your focus so you feel good in this moment. When you feel good, you will naturally have more positive thoughts.

There are really only two ways to feel in the now, varying levels of good( great, awesome and off the Richter scale amazing!! and so on) and varying degrees of bad ( sad, worried, depressed and so on) How we feel choose to feel is totally in our hands. Where you put your focus now, will greatly affect how you feel.

Focus on all the good things in your life and you will feel better. Train yourself to feel good in the now and you will automatically become a more positive thinker and therefore increase your ability to use your most powerful instrument(your brain) more effectively.

We freely and happily invest in food, clothing and grooming and yet when it comes to investing time into our spiritual and emotional well-being we are suddenly too busy or find other excuses. The funniest excuse being I don't need to do that! All your efforts towards success will fail when your head is constantly taking you full speed down negative lane, so investing in your internal  wellbeing will give you access to a powerful ability to manifest your desires and live a truly joyful life.

Clarity of mind is important and comes from knowing how to take charge of your inner mental and emotional dialogue. Meditation is undoubtedly one of the most effective (and dare I say fun and easiest!!) ways to take charge of your mind because you are working with the most natural and powerful cure, "silence". Silence is to the soul what water is to the body, expose yourself to it and feeling good in the now will become your natural state in daily life. 
Invest in your well-being and thrive.
