The Benefits of Positive Thinking

The benefits of positive thinking cannot be overemphasized.

It is perhaps one of the most influential forces that you have dominion over, and it gives you the power to take control of a situation. Many prolific events in our history have occurred because people had this mindset. They did not get lost in the circumstance or the situation; they set their goals and put positive thinking into first gear. Madam Curie Sklodowska, Steve Jobs, Brothers Wrights all faced adversity in one form or the other. Yet, because of their ability to think positively, they excelled in their field and were able to influence countless lives.

Although positive thinking is an asset that we all possess, very few utilize it. Whether you have negative experiences in childhood or low self-esteem, it is never too late to implement a new thinking strategy. This new habit may take a while to root itself, but remember, you have been thinking negatively early all your life. Let’s face it; how we think shapes our lives.

The mind is the most powerful entity known. Everything starts in the mind!

Practice makes perfect. Once you become aware of your thinking patterns, it’s easy to implement a new, more effective thought process.

Positive thinking gives emotional and spiritual wealth. It is my belief that schools should teach their pupil its benefits. It would help them mature into admirable adults, thus making the world a better place.

Agnes Khan – My Story

agnes-khan-5-flavours-of-health

It was a chance meeting with Anna Ciesielska that helped to change my life and the way I live.

It all started when my second child was born.  Almost from his birth he started to suffer from a serious skin condition, which affected his face and most of his body.  His sores were so bad that I had to put him to bed with cotton gloves, so that he would not be able to scratch his face. It was such a difficult period of my life and it took a great deal of courage and patience to continually attend to my child on a daily basis.  By sheer fluke it was during this time that I was recommend to read Anna’s books, and this has changed my life.

Initially we attended Doctor’s surgeries trying prescribed medication, to relieve the suffering of my child.   Sadly, nothing seemed to alleviate his condition. In fact, it was getting worse.  I then began to question his diet and how I might be able to resolve his sores, without drugs.   It was at this stage that I began to avidly read Anna’s book, and eventually I managed to phone her.

This diet is not a quick fix solution, a fast weight loss plan to follow for a few weeks.  NO – this is a way of life.   I myself read Anna’s book many times and slowly I realized how the diet all made sense.  I learned how to combine foods, use certain herbs and spices, change my way of cooking.  I can only say that within few of weeks my child began to recover and my whole family started to have more energy, feeling the benefits of changes I have introduced into our family’s diet.

I found that once I understood how the Five Elements Theory in our climatic zone works, how the foods combined to keep our bodies healthy, it was not difficult to continue this way of life.   I can proudly say that after a few years of following this lifestyle, our family is much healthier, happier and stronger. Both physically and emotionally.   My older son now asks me to make packed lunches to take to School, as he feels healthier when he eats the food I prepare.
