Much has been said, and written concerning the power of positive thinking. Norman Vincent Peal made a fortune writing and speaking about it. He wasn’t the first, nor will he be the last. What does that mean then. Essentially it means if you approach things with a negative attitude, your interaction will be negative more often than not. As an example have you ever been with someone that ALWAYS belittles anything and everything you face together? Why the hell do you do anything with that person? Its obvious she or he is not a friend, because friends are positive with each other. Anyway, if you go into a show with intentions of enjoying it, odds are you will enjoy it, no matter how bad it is, because you entered the theater upbeat, so it is easier to be upbeat all through the show. If your friend starts off negative, you, then, have to climb over the negativity to become neutral, then climb again to be positive. That is a lot of unnecessary climbing. So, stay around positive people, you will have a better life.
