When we think positively, do we not feel calm and happy? And when we think negatively about anything, do we feel the same happiness?

It is because thinking positively releases positive vibes; whereas thinking negatively releases negative vibes.

Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan, an enlightened being has revealed one of the most scientific principles of Nature, “The rule of circumstances is such that one weak circumstance will pull together many other weak circumstances, while one strong circumstance will pull along many other strong circumstances.” Hence, our positive thinking brings forth positive evidences that bring about a positive change in our life. And the slightest of negative thought has immense power to even spoil the good results that we’ve persevered for.

Thus, at every step of our life, we get to notice how our perspective or outlook towards anything plays a major role in the quality of life we live. And therefore it is very important that we always maintain the right perspective while dealing with any situation, in order to live a happy and contented life.

So come, let us see what changes we shall see when we maintain a positive or a negative outlook in life.


Positive outlook makes us open minded. It broadens your sense of possibilities and you are more willing to come out of the limits of your individual opinion and consider other’s opinions too, when deciding anything important. Negative thinking does not allow us to heartily welcome other’s say on the matter.

Problem Solving

Whenever you get stuck or you don’t get the desired results in whatever you are doing, by having a positive outlook, you will be able to find some solution to correct it. But by harnessing negativity like ‘I can’t do it, I knew it will fail, etc.’, you will not be able to proceed towards a viable solution, since your mind will have stopped processing any further information because of the negativity.

Energetic and Enthusiastic

Pujya Dadashri says’ “There is tremendous energy in the word ‘yes’ and tremendous weakness in the word ‘no’.” Yes is a positive word indicative of your positive mindset. With a positive mindset, one naturally feels more energetic and enthusiastic. For example, before appearing for an interview, if you say, “Yes, I will certainly attempt it.”, your speech and your entire body language begin to ooze confidence, which helps you clear your interview with ease and compose. On the other hand, if you say, “No, I can never do it. I don’t have any knowledge, etc.”, the same will be clearly visible in your actions too, and you will be fumbling and struggling with every answer inspite of knowing everything.

Perception Change

“The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” says Winston Churchill. By changing only your perception from negative to positive one, you notice that the same situation, in which you felt very bad, no longer seems bad to you; in fact you like the learning experience it gave to you.

Appreciate and Sharing Happiness

With positive thinking, you are able to freely appreciate others and you find happiness in other’s happiness, but with negative thinking you feel jealous and envious when you see others succeed

Live the moment

Positive thinking lets you remain in present and live the moment. This results in peace and calmness in your life as oppose to anger, agitation, fear and worry which are nothing but outbursts of negative thinking.

Being positive doesn’t mean that whatever you think will happen; rather it means accepting whatever happens. Acceptance means a ‘NO PROBLEM’ attitude; unfavorable situations cannot ruin your peace then. Where there is acceptance, you are prepared to face any failure, should it happen. Instead of running away or becoming fearful, you will think about how to come out of the given situation.

Improved Health

Positive thinking makes you cheerful, keeping all stress and anxiety at bay, thus making your mind, body and speech healthier. On the other hand, with negative thinking you feel exhausted as your energy gets drained, you experience lot of tension and stress, and thus it impacts your health adversely.

Higher Success rate
Positivity makes you take things in the right direction which leads to a successful life.

Flawless Vision

One who has a positive vision always sees and appreciates positive traits, without seeing anyone’s fault. Whereas one having a negative eye, sees others faults immediately, even in straightforward things. Eg. When someone is nice to them, it makes them wonder that he should be having some selfish interest, that’s the reason he is being very nice to me. Seeing other’s faults always results in suffering.

Spiritual growth

Positive thinking makes you a better person at heart and with flawless vision you maintain equanimity in dealing with others, which in turn clears your karmic account and brings you closer towards your Soul. Per spiritual science, the topmost positive vision is to see Pure Soul in everyone. And this is possible by attaining Self -Realization from Gnani Purush, the Enlightened One. So why not go ahead and experience our true Self.

Author's Bio: 

Ambalal M. Patel was a civil contractor by profession. In June 1958, spontaneous Self-Realization occurred within Ambalal M. Patel. From this point on, Ambalal became a Gnani Purush, and the Lord that manifest within him became known as Dada Bhagwan. A Gnani Purush is One who has realized the Self and is able help others do the same. Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan used to go from town to town and country-to-country to give satsang (spiritual discourse) and impart the knowledge of the Self, as well as knowledge of harmonious worldly interactions to everyone who came to meet him. This spiritual science, known as Akram Vignan, is the step-less path to Self-realization.
