There is power in positive thinking, without it some things might not even happen. Donald Martin states, "[all] of our feelings, beliefs and knowledge are based on our internal thoughts, both conscious and subconscious." For example, no one likes having a load of unfinished work they think it will take forever, or they think they can wait till later. This will cause them to do it later (more negative thinking). If it was more positive thinking like if they start now they will have more free time later, or they might do a better job if they start now, and this will not be put off till later. It is how people see the work load, how they feel about it, and think about it that causes different actions to happen. Thinking more positively the work will be completed faster and more accurate. In addition, many people think about what they want to be when they are a child, a teenager, and even as an adult. They may even dream about it. Most of the time, it is a positive view of what they want to become not negative. They do not think about all the tough obstacles that are ahead, but the goal at the end. By thinking like this people find ways to get to where they may want to be in life, whether it's about being wealthy, or getting their dream career. Everything we do is based on our thoughts, just like the saying think before you act. On the other hand, just imagining, picturing, or even if it is a positive though is not enough it would be only half accomplished. The optimistic idea is only like a blueprint of a construction worker. There also has to be some kind of action involved. Without action nothing would be done, the blueprint would only be swaying in the wind. Positive thinking does have power, but combined with building and work it would be more powerful.
