Positive Thinking – umm?

Positive thinking is like positive drinking.  It can be intoxicating but don’t drive under the influence.

Neutrality and outcome focus leaves us nimble, agile, flexible and ready to react to the realities we encounter between here and our goal.  Negative thinking can pull us far off course and we do want to reprogram or reframe our inner environment and make it conducive to getting to our goal, but Pollyanna positivism can prevent us from seeing clearly the true and real obstacles in enough time to divert and reroute.

We envision the goal.  We imagine our successful attainment of that goal.  We start taking action in movement toward the goal and we accept feedback on a constant basis.  Positive thinking in the form of blinders to the feedback that comes our way is a not a method of getting where we want to go.
