Is the power of positive thinking an illusion, denial of the negative or a belief system?

The power of positive thinking is a belief system, saying that if you believe that good things will happen, they will. Some people are thinking that it is true, for others, it is only an illusion.  The power of positive thinking is a belief. If you believe that it is not working, it is not, if you believe that it is working, it works. A great way to quickly assess your power of positive thinking is to ask yourself “Am I happy?” If you can not answer ‘yes’ to the question “Are you happy?”, then you need to develop a more positive mindset. Happiness comes from within from what we believe.

Adopting a positive attitude is a little more than putting a smile on your face all day & trying to keep positive thoughts. Negative thoughts are fuelled by fear, anger or sadness and promote negative behaviours and attitudes in both your personal and professional life. Negative thoughts are blocking your creativity as they are keeping your mental focus. Unconsciously, negative thoughts are leading to negative and disempowering questions. You are then focusing on what is missing and what is going wrong instead of keeping the focus on potential solutions and alternatives. Such thinking patterns can run work relationships and reduce  accomplishments. Learn more in our 21 day positive thinking devotional.


Today we’re challenging the thought that says, “I am Afraid” 

2 Timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” 

Fear is at the root of just about every negative thing that happens in our lives. We’re afraid of failing; afraid of being alone or rejected; afraid of running out of money; afraid that people will let us down; afraid that we won’t find a spouse or the one we found will leave us.


In Job 3:25, Job feared that his children would curse God, and that’s what happened. When you realise fear has the power to produce negative results, you stop dabbling in it. When a child learns what fire can do, he no longer plays with matches! 

All fear is rooted in the core belief that God’s Word won’t work. For example, the fear of not having enough is rooted in the fear that Philippians 4:19 isn’t true. If you believe that “God will supply all your needs according to His riches…” then fear leaves. 

1 Kings 8:56 says, “…Every word has come true of all His good promise…” (NLV). Fear leaves when you can rely on something that can’t fail. God has never failed to fulfil His promises. There are over 1000 predictions or prophecies in the Bible—promises that God made before they happened. The chances of merely 17 of these coming to pass are 1 out of 450 billion x 1 billion x 1 trillion! Yet, not one of these promises has failed.  TRUST GOD TODAY MORE THAN YOU EVER HAVE!!
