Positive thinking or a positive attitude may not bring about a cure, recovery or solution, but neither will negative thinking or a negative attitude. It will however improve your current state of being.
1: Always hope, never lose hope, while there is breath in you there is hope.
2: Choose your own attitude.
“The last of human freedoms – the ability to choose one’s attitude in a given set of circumstances.” Viktor E. Frankl
3: Accept the reality of your situation, act appropriately and always hold on to faith, even in difficult circumstances. Remember the Stockdale Paradox
“This is a very important lesson. You must never confuse faith that you will prevail in the end—which you can never afford to lose—with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they might be.” Vice Admiral James Bond Stockdale
Positive thinking based in reality is positive action.
