Positive Thinking Quotes
(25+ quotes)

Positive thinking quotes address the creative power of our thoughts and words to shape reality. Research shows positive thinking leads to happiness and productivity. 

Negative thoughts do the opposite. Do you practice positive thinking? Positive thinking quotes will give you a good start.  We encourage you to be mindful of the thoughts and words that fill your mind (and conversations) day after day.  Thoughts are like seeds. The negative ones turn into weeds which can take over your whole garden if you get lazy about getting rid of them.

All thought is creative.  Pay special attention to the things you say to yourself.  Keep your self-talk positive and empowering. Using “I am” in front of any word makes it an affirmation and super powerful. The next time you catch yourself putting yourself down (saying things like: “I am always forgetting” or “I am stupid,” counter their power by saying the words “cancel, clear.” This is not a joke. If you knew the tremendous harm negative “I am” statements can make you’d make it your business to stop them immediately. Do not speak unless your words are positive and affirming. Seriously. I’ll close with Neale Donald Walsch’s thoughtful warning: “Thought is pure energy. Every thought you have, have ever had, and ever will have is creative. The energy of your thought never dies. Ever. It leaves your being and heads out into the universe, extending forever. A thought is forever.”

Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
Groucho Marx

Benjamin Franklin

Use the word perhaps to change your negative beliefs to possibilities that invite action and, ultimately, to positive beliefs and probabilities.
Anita Foley

There are some days I practice positive thinking, and other days I'm not positive I am thinking.
John M. Eades

I promise myself…to be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind; to talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person I meet; to make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them; to look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true; to think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best; to be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own; to forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future; to wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature I meet; to give so much time to improving myself that I have no time to criticize others; to be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble; to think well of myself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud word, but in great deeds; to live in the faith that the whole world is on my side, so long as I am true to the best that is in me.
Christian D. Larson

Everything that you are against works against you. Everything that you are against can be restated in a way that puts you in support of something. When you are able to state what you are for rather than what you are against, you are focusing on the potential for positive change. Once that is in place, you will find whatever you are focusing on expanding.
Wayne Dyer

I have become my own version of an optimist. If I can't make it through one door, I'll go through another door – or I'll make a door. Something terrific will come no matter how dark the present.
Rabindranath Tagore

People deal too much with the negative, with what is wrong…Why not try and see positive things, to just touch those things and make them bloom?
Thich Nhat Hanh

There is a basic law that like attracts like. Negative thinking definitely attracts negative results. Conversely, if a person habitually thinks optimistically and hopefully, his positive thinking sets in motion creative forces – and success, instead of eluding him, flows toward him.
Norman Vincent Peale
