"Whether you think you can, or you can't, you're right." - Henry Ford

Hola world!

So I've been reading a lot about positivity, and the "scientific" methods and research behind it & how to attain it. In addition, I've read about the "spiritual" ways of manifesting your own optimistic, wonderful life. There is a lot of overlap in methods, except the latter lacks evidence. As a student in biomed, lack of evidence makes me cringe, yet I find inner spirituality and self-discovery a wonderful thing that can't be studied or quantified. Even though your brain's electrical activity can be recorded, the print-outs can't tell you/your physician/your operator what exact thought was running through your mind at a given moment. Only you are in control of your mind, and that's why I meditation and spirituality (believing in God/The Universe/Yourself/Star Wars, etc) are so fascinating! There has to be within you an undeniable conviction & belief that good is going to happen. With science, the statistics can sometimes get you down in the dumps, and you may relegate yourself to the "other 20%" that were unsuccessful in Study XYZ. That's why spirituality helps so many; there are no numbers and success rates to compare yourself to. It's just you. And in the end, the way you feel at a certain moment in time (even right now while you're reading this entry) is a product of your thinking. Some people may find their extra positivity boost through religion, while others will find peace and optimism within themselves. Do what's more in alignment with your way of life. But it all boils down to one thing, your thoughts must match your aspirations and desires in order for you to achieve them - negativity will fester doubt, and that'll pull you farther from success. Why? Because doubt means you've lost faith in your own abilities, and that's not acceptable! CONFIDENCE, MY FRIENDS!
