1. Everything begins with a thought. Life consists of what a man thinks about all day.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

2. What we think determines who we are. Who we are determines what we do. The actions of men are the best interpreters of their thoughts. – John Locke

3. Our thoughts determine our destiny. Our destiny determines our legacy. You are today where your thoughts have brought you. You will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you. – James Allen

4. People who go to the top think differently than others. Nothing limits achievement like small thinking. Nothing expands possibilities like unleashed thinking. – William Arthur Ward

5. We can change the way we think. Whatever things are true, noble, just, pure, lovely, are of good report. If there is any virtue, and if there is anything praiseworthy, think on these things. – Saul of Tarsus (Paul the Apostle)

Optimism is a Choice

To “OPT” is to choose. OPTimism is a choice – about how we see (the world around us). Seeing clearly is more than just OPTometry – for we see with our minds and not just what we have our eye on.

An ion is an atom or molecule with a positive or negative charge – as the result of gaining or losing an electron. The word “ion” means going in Greek. How and where we look and what we look for determines where we are going and what we get. Keep your eye on where you desire to go; choose OPTion(s) that will take you there; and gain and lose what you have to in order to become and stay positive.

To “POSIT” is to assume, assert, or affirm a position, perspective, or postulation. Both positive and negative have value – yet the POSITion that serves us best is the one we experience as POSITiLIVEly.

Raising Energy

One of the fastest, easiest, and most effective ways for raising energy is by repeatedly and sequentially tapping lightly on certain specific places on the face and body – while declaring out loud what is desired in positive present tense statements that help direct both our conscious and unconscious attention to aligning with and acting as if it is already so – thereby elevating our mood and increasing the frequency (rate) of our personal (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual) vibration.
