Introduction: Ten Powerful Ideas to Improve Your Thinking Skills
The best way to prevent a negative thought is to replace it with beneficial one. When your mind is constantly saying no and complaining, you’re constantly blaming other people, or things that aren’t under your control; this will lead to loss of happiness and the inability to create new beliefs that can help you rise above mediocrity. Here are 10 ideas for how you can help yourself be more successful: 1) Always ask yourself, “Why not me? Why does this always happen to me?” and to look for the positive in all situations. 2) Stop judging and condemning others and learn to accept people as they are. 3) Count your blessings instead of your problems; it will help you see that problems are things that should be dealt with at some other time. 4) Evaluate your motivations. Are your motivations pure? Do you want something for yourself because it’s good for you, or because you don’t like to be a failure? 5) Avoid negative people, who are always bringing you down, and surround yourself with people who are positive. 6) Take responsibility for your own actions and don’t blame other people. Whenever you feel bad about something that happens to you, step back and ask yourself, “What does this say about me?” 7) Don’t criticize others. Give people the benefit of the doubt. 8) Before you blame somebody, find out what their motives were. 9) Learn to accept criticism, and learn from your mistakes. 10) Stop blaming others for everything that goes wrong in your life, and start taking responsibility for your own actions.

In his book “Positive thinking” (which is a textbook in psychology), Dr. Norman Vincent Peale quotes J. W. Hill in which he states, “Anyone who wants to accomplish his best must create a mental picture of how he wants to be and then proceed to fill his mind with those images. Possibility is the key to success.”
Peale wrote, “We can change our circumstances through positive thinking. We must change our thoughts, but we cannot change our circumstances. Therefore, we need to change both our thoughts and our circumstances. When we combine these two elements into a strategy of total victory—when you think as if you already have what you want—you will find yourself getting what you want.”
