Hello all.

Please accept the following link with my deepest best wishes for all.

You Can't Afford The Luxury of a Negative Thought

I read this book originally back in the mid 90's and I have to say it totally changed my life.

Although this book was written originally with terminally ill people in mind, it's principles can be applied by everyone.

It is not like any self help book I have every read. Most of these so called self help guides do one thing wrong. They ignore the negative.

There is absolutely no point in ignoring the negative... just like the proverbial ostridge with it's head in the sand.

This book teaches to live for life and to enjoy what you have. It also teaches how to deal with negative issues and reach for success.

Since reading this book, I can honestly say I have reduced the amount of time I have felt sad or unhappy to next to nil.

This all sounds like a sales pitch but the link I provided is a legal link to the FULL BOOK.

The very nature of this book is to spread health, wealth and happiness into the world not least of which is aimed at your self


O.k. All the best people.

Definately a interesting book. As the days pass by I'm realizing more and more of that. I knew it before, but I didn't understand and feel it like I do lately.

One important thing is to focus on things that you are grateful for... Or look for things to be grateful for. Which ironically means something much different than being a conspiracy theorist though.

But you must not ignore the negative though. Accept that for what it is, and appreciate what you're learning from that and go on.

I'm glad you guys appreciate it.


I have owned the book on no less than 4 occasions and have ended up giving it away to my friends and family never to see it again


I'm happy that it has now found a way of reaching more people.

True knowledge is timeless and when reading the truth it is very hard to ignore or deny it in your heart.

All the best,

The gratitude chapter is an especially important read. I think that that's one of the most powerful feelings you can have.

Thank you for the link.


I haven't gotten to the gratitude chapter yet, but I'm looking forward to it.

This is going to be an interesting read, and couldn't have come at a better time. I'll report back when finished.

*Cheers!*

yep i learned a long time ago, how important it is to think positively about situations. i am sure there are really complex reasons for this. i brought a book in the early 90's before the internet was here, and it really helped me, sort of on this subject.

but the way of the world today, people are just obsessed with getting people to think bad things and think poorly of themselves, its a dog eat dog world, and unfortunately the people in power, want absolute power and they would wreck any life to get there.

but thanks again for the book. and you are right it is always better to thank god for what you have, than to worry and being ungrateful for what you do not have. the glass is half full and all that. but living in a consumer society in the west all we are here for today, if to buy stuff, and companies know how to put people into the right frame of mind to buy stuff, and you need to be quite strong willed to stay outside of the system they have built.

Btw... Here's an article I found about why positive thinking (in the way most people understand it) doesn't work. The feeling part of the equation is missing.

It begins with a common example.


There was someone I used to work with who, well aware
of their tendency to look at the negative side of things,
used to constantly tell themselves to "think more
positively".

This was said with such a feeling of desperation that I just
knew that not only would they NOT think positively, they
would probably go even further into negative thinking. The
mere fact that they kept pushing themselves to "think
positively" was a sign that this would ultimately be
counterproductive.


Then explains where the misunderstanding about postive thinking is.


The Law of Attraction, as defined by Abraham Hicks states
that "you attract to yourself what you give your attention
and energy to, whether wanted or unwanted".

One reason why positive thinking doesn't work is that our
focus is in the wrong place. So we say "I don't want to be
ill" and believe that this thought will prevent us from
being ill. So where is our focus? On being ill!
Because the Universe doesn't recognize "not" or "don't".
How many times have you told yourself NOT to forget
something and then what happens? Oops you've forgotten it!


It then goes on about positive feeling, and why that is the key to improving life.


How can you begin to reverse this? Rather than focusing on
your thoughts, focus on your feelings about a given
situation or what you would like the situation to be. Start
to visualise and sense what you truly desire. Focus on
ramping up good, positive, energetic feelings about what
you desire, rather than the thought.

Dude, totally amazing!

I just finished my ATS blog concerning "positive thinking.

In short, my blog basically tells my story of unacceptance to myself.
I was diagnosed as an obsessive compulsive at the age of 14, (brought on by a strict religious belief system), and in short - when I was a missionary in Vienna, I learned acceptance. (positive thinking for sure.)

Anyway, I breezed over to the forums and saw this, and was amazed with the timing.

Quantum entanglement? lol

yes you are right...

so many people spend all day hating and being jelous and hating...hating...all day long...

i used to know this guy in college and from morning till night all he did was hate blacks,mexicans and all the ethnics ...all day long...

he dissed them all day long...

he used the nig*** word all day....

...abusing...shouting ,swearing...

at one point he started buying bananas and then throwing them at the tv every time a black face appeared....

and then his partner had to clean the mess on tv screen.

i was so depressed whenever he was around and felt much despair...


and then you had all the gullible fools around him worshipping him and bolstering his ego....

the fact is at then end of the day the poorest american lives like a king compared to an african....

I've read a few good books on stress over the years. One of the best I've read recently is Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers by Robert M Sapolsky. It can be a little dry, in the sense that most of his research deals with specific bilogical reactions involved in the stress response system. But he does a good job of explaining some strange gluco-cortoid interaction with cells and linking it to an example of real world stress.

His book covers almost all the aspects of stress and examines how different people react differntly to the same stress. A lot of it comes down to personal beliefs and reactions. Do you worry over something and fret and think about it constantly or do you go and do something to change it.

I feel we have the tools to reduce our own stress by managing how we react to stress and when possible avoiding stressful situations.

Thanks for the link ... looks like some more good info on stress from the standpoint of the power of positive thinking.
