This philosophy is what author of Chicken Soup for the Soul, Jack Canfield, calls inverse paranoia.
It sounds rather silly and nonsensical. Before you dismiss it, try it on for size. It might just fit your need to stay positive in perilous times.
It is in the heart of man to dwell on the negative "what ifs." Our fixation with what all could go wrong traps us in life's thickets. Yet we seldom question why we humans have this natural bent. By nature we readily embrace or expect the worst possible outcome of a seemingly troublesome situation.
Two days after your annual physical, you get an unexpected call from the doctor. You automatically think the worst.
We see "suspicious" movements in the dark and fear we are being followed. Turns out, it was our own nervous shadow that triggered the fright.
Whether bad or good, "as a man thinks, so is he." That's a powerful Bible phrase. It clearly suggests that fear and paranoia are self-inflicted; ideas birthed in our head.
And the longer we nurture these negative notions, the more they grow natural tendencies.
But the cure for paranoia is also formed in the mind. Just call it positive thinking.
We can use it to reverse our fearful thoughts. Use it to foster a philosophy that expects the world to work in concert with us. Indeed, our positive expectations can create powerful, positive outcomes.
Remember, we are the masters of our minds. Too often though, we allow our thoughts to master us. If they are based on fear and negative energy, that's exactly what they'll produced in our lives.
If they are powered by positive thoughts, positive results will be our reward.
If we command our minds to follow productive orders, everything within us will follow suit.
Even the universe will bow with gladness. It eagerly waits to join your push towards positive purpose.
Believe that the world is plotting to do you good. And watch how radically your perspective shifts.
You will not only look at everything differently. You'll get busy and work hard to make the plot succeed!
