OPTIMISM - Jack Canfield Being Realistic About Positive Thinking

Fans of The Secret and the "Law of Attraction" talk alot about believing that the world will conspire to make a positive thinker successful. I totally agree that visualizing success and  being optimistic are needed to prepare for success. But I also believe that positive thinking isn't enough. You also have to follow through with action. You have to do the work.

This one-minute video by Jack Canfield does a great job of presenting a practical, grounded view of the power of optimism.

Jack Canfield is the founder and co-creator with Mark Victor Hansen of the legendary best-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul book series.

Being a reverse paranoid...I found this to be a powerful 1 minute reminder of the need to master one's thinking...bringing every thought into captivity...and controlling the actions that result from those thoughts.

Each and every thing that happens to us, positive and negative, should be opportunities to learn, grow, improve, re-think our strategy, examine ourselves, etc. All should propel us onto a path of action, and not reaction. We cannot only think, eventually we must do.
Amen, a voice of reason.
