  1. Understand why positive thinking makes sense  

This understanding makes it easy for your mind to accept and think positive thoughts.

It is important to consider positive thoughts and determine whether they are true or valid.

Here’s why: once your mind sees that a positive thought is true or valid, your mind naturally is receptive to the positive thought, so it’s easy to accept it and start thinking positively.

Even better, the more your mind understands why a positive thought is clearly true or valid, the more your mind thinks positively on a deeper level, with complete confidence and no doubts.

So reasoning and using your intellect are your friends: this is how to rewire your brain to think positively on a very deep level.

  1. It makes sense to value valid and useful perspectives and opinions  

  • Often times, different ways of thinking are simply a matter of perspective, and there are negative and positive perspectives that can be considered equally valid. The classic example is a glass that can be considered half empty or half full.
  • The difference is that a negative perspective is useless and can harm you, while a positive perspective is useful and will benefit you.
  • So, with different equally valid perspectives, it always makes sense to choose the useful positive perspective instead of the useless negative perspective.
  • This understanding enables you to think more and more positively in an intelligent manner, where you always accept positive thoughts that are valid and useful, and always reject negative thoughts that are valid but useless (or even harmful).

  1. It makes sense to value true and useful facts  

There are useful truths and facts that will benefit you, and there are useless truths and facts that will never benefit you. Positive thinking is firmly in the useful camp.

For example, it might be true and valid to think that you’ve failed to achieve a lot of things that you want to achieve; this might be a fact. But it’s also true and valid to think that you can achieve a lot of things that you want to achieve; this is another fact.

Here’s the difference between these two facts:

  • Dwelling on how you’ve failed makes you feel bad, hurts your self confidence, and kills your energy and motivation to take action... So it becomes more challenging for you to act and to achieve the things you want to achieve. (The predictable result: less success, if any.)
  • Thinking that you can achieve the things you want to achieve lifts your spirits, increases your self confidence, and increases your energy and motivation to take action... So it becomes easier for you to act and to achieve the things you want to achieve. (The predictable result: an easier time succeeding and more success.) 

  • The lesson: it always makes sense to accept positive, useful truths and facts that benefit you, and to reject negative, useless truths and facts that don’t benefit you.
  • This understanding helps you think more positively in an intelligent manner, where you always accept useful truths and facts, and always reject useless truths and facts, since you appreciate that it takes more than something just being true or factual for it to be worth keeping. 

  1. It makes sense in every possible way to think beneficial positive thoughts that are true or valid  

A formula for positive thinking: beneficial + valid or true = completely sensible

The most powerful way to think positively is to appreciate how a positive thought benefits you, and also understand why a positive thought is true or valid.

A positive thought that satisfies these two criteria is good for you in every conceivable way, and is also completely sensible and worth keeping. Even better:

  • By appreciating how this type of thought is fantastic every way you look at it, your brain naturally assigns a high value to these types of thoughts.
  • This makes it very easy to think positive and to stay positive.
  • So always be sure to focus on identifying these kinds of positive thoughts and to appreciate their value to your life.
  • If you consider a 'positive' thought, and you find that it is not true or valid for any reason, then discard the thought
  • Instead, find a positive thought that you do consider true or valid, that your mind will use and accept
  • You can always do this, and it always makes sense in every way to do this

  1. Decide to change your thinking after achieving this understanding  

This simple decision instructs your mind how to think and gets the job done.

You have the power to choose to think positively and to stay positive. The catch is that this choice is only effective once you understand:

  • Why a positive thought is of great value to you
  • Why it completely makes sense to think the positive thought

This is because your brain will continue thinking in other ways that it values and that makes sense to it, until you teach it – via this type of understanding – why this positive thought is much more valuable and sensible and therefore an upgrade worth doing.

The lesson: first understand the importance of positive thinking, and why you want to think a positive thought. Then decide to think positively. This gets your brain's cooperation and helps you stay positive easily.

Some additional things to appreciate:

  • Wanting to think positively for yourself (regardless of whether anyone else wants you to think more positively) is one of the most important keys for thinking positive thoughts that have a positive effect on your life and well-being
  • With this clear desire, improvements in how you think flow much more naturally and easily
