The Impact of Positive Imagery

Every minute of every day, your body is physically reacting, literally changing, in response to the thoughts that run through your mind.

It's been shown over and over again that just thinking about something can cause your brain to release neurotransmitters, chemical messengers that allow it to communicate with parts your nervous system. Neurotransmitters control virtually all of your body's functions, from hormones to digestion to feeling happy, sad or stressed.

Did you know that your biology doesn't determine your destiny, and you aren't controlled by your genetic makeup? Instead, your genetic activity is largely determined by your thoughts, attitudes and perceptions.

Positive expectations yield positive results. Many experiments show that positive images make groups more effective, relieve symptoms of illness and enhance achievement in education and business. Seeing is believing, and that can be life-affirming as well as life-enhancing.

You have the ability to influence your physical and mental realities. Your mindset is recognized by your body. The more you improve your mental habits, the more beneficial response you'll get from your body. You might be surprised as to how many of your aches and pains are caused by your thoughts. You can't control what has happened in the past; however, you do have the ability to choose your perspective and behavior, which will determine the quality of results you experience in your life.
