Our personality is the product of our thoughts. Thoughts have the power to enlighten our mind's capacity. Positive thoughts can enhance our happiness. Positivism is the practice of being optimist in the negative conditions of life. So, one should always be optimist to stay positive.
Never say to yourself “I can't”, Ask yourself “How can I?"
We may do many things to increase thought process because mind's most powerful weapon is thought. John Milton said in Paradise Lost: - "The mind is its own place, and this itself can make a heaven of hell and hell of heaven. " It means that it's all up to our mind-set. We can make anything in our imagination, and hell can also become as beautiful as heaven in the thoughts of our mind.
