Everything in this world is a product of either positive or negative thinking. Folks, do you know that the way you think can influence the entire course of your life? Thought processes have strong consequences. The way we think, is the way we ultimately behave. And the way we behave, is the way we live.
I have seen many people who curse their destinies when something goes wrong. But, the truth is your destiny lies in your hand. It is all in your head, in the top floor of your entire being! Have you experienced a day when nothing goes right, and a day which is full of smiles and cheer? This may be because of situations on one hand but the main reason behind it how you think and react in different situations. Let me tell you a simple day-to-day example: Imagine you get up late in the morning and get irritated due to it. As the day started on an angry note, everything in that day will keep on pushing you towards negative thoughts. Even the slightest mistake by your partner or colleague will make you blast off. On the contrary, if you think positively in each and every situation, you will see how easily and efficiently you can handle things no matter how complicated they are.
Therefore, one thought gives rise to another and gradually several thought clouds start engulfing your mind. What will make the difference is whether they are filled with positive charges or negative thunder bolts. Now let’s see whether you are a positive or a negative thinker. I have written about the different thought and behavior habits of a positive vs negative thinker below. Match them and see where you stand and which path you need to take in future:

It is the content of our thinking that makes and shapes our entire thought system, behavioral patterns and personality. Positive thinking has tremendous positive effects on your physical health, mental health, social interactions, professional life and in each and every nook and corner of your life. However, negative thinking can shove you in a hearth of ill-health, maladaptive behavior patterns, unstable relationships and overall chaos and disturbance in each and every facet of life.
So with a little thought shift from negativity to positivity your life can turn into a worthwhile journey of happiness, success, health and prosperity.
