Positive thinking is hailed by many as the reason they have succeeded in life, with so many books, DVDs and so on on the market at the moment it can become frustrating when you aren't seeing or feeling positive thinking making much difference in your life.

There are many reasons why this may not be working for you but buying all the books in the world probably won't improve things if you are unable to change a few things from within. Here are a few reasons why positive thinking may not be working for you and what you can do to change that situation:

Many people get so distracted by the outside world that it leads them away from where the answers really are and that is that all the answers are within... and so to is your happiness. You do not need to search you just need to look within. Some people do this through meditation others through walking in nature others through relaxing in the pool. However you wish to go about it doesn't matter, what matters is that you actually do go within. Remember the phrase 'if I do not go within, I go without and it is so true.

Spending time meditating is an ideal way to find peace in your mind, to establish exactly what you need to do to achieve your goals and how exactly you are going to go about it. Saying I don't have enough time is not an option. They are the words of someone who doesn't want to do something. Set your alarm ten minutes earlier if needs be because looking within your self and correcting your mental focus is the single most important thing that will make positive thinking work for you.

Do not let what you cannot do affect what you can do! That is a powerful message that should be taken on board. If you concentrate and focus on the things that you are unable to do you are in effect pushing yourself away your goal from you. Instead of feeling bad about the restrictions that you do have placed upon you, focus on what you are able to do. Remember you do not have to know how you will achieve your over all goal you just need to believe that you will. Let each stage of the journey towards your goal unfold in front of you as you go.

Thirdly, you also need to develop positive habits. This is a real key. Just meditating every now and then is not going to be enough to change your mindset consistently, but doing so daily will provide a much better clarity of thought and focussed mindset thus achieving greater results. Develop habits such as when you are commuting to work think about all the things you have to be thankful for. This thankfulness is a real positive thought and you can then transfer this positive feeling towards that which you want to achieve, bringing it closer to you.

The above are just a few quick tips on what you can do for free to help you become more positive in your daily life. There are many more ways to do so and none of them require money, only desire on your part which you obviously have as you have already found this article, so no more excuses.
