When I was finally diagnosed with Pd, back in 1992, I was a beaten man! I was so depressed and demotivated that I am surprised that I ever recovered from that situation. In business, I had learned that having a positive attitude was the only way to succeed in life.
That was a very good lesson, because we are what we think, and thinking negatively always brings negative results. It is a self-fulfilling prophecy.
But how can being positive help us to overcome something like Pd. We know that we cannot win a race unless we think we possibly can. I think the same goes for any illness. If we think we are going to die, then the chances are that we will die. Therefore, using the same logic, if we think we can get better then the chances are that we will get better.
Not only am I not a doctor, I also am obviously not a psychologist. How the mind works is still a bit of a mystery to us all. As a layman I do know from personal experience that when I am thinking and acting positively, then most things happen the way, or nearly, that I had hoped. When I am negative about something, and I do sometimes feel negative about certain things, especially politics, then those things tend to go wrong.
Do you find that when you say positive things to the people around you, they react in a positive way?
Do you also find that when you are grumpy, other people are also grumpy to you?
Let us make our own lives more enjoyable, and the lives of those around us more bearable, by being positive about ourselves and pleasant to others around us.
