Johnny Mercer a 1940's song writer and singer wrote the lyrics and melody with Harold Arlen, Accentuate the Positive. The lyrics remind us to look for the positive aspects of life, and simply eliminate the negative, latch onto the alternative and don't mess with 'Mister in between.'
The lyrics also remind us, "You've got to spread joy up to the maximum, bring gloom down to the minimum. Have faith, or pandemonium is liable to walk upon the scene."
Mercer's and Arlen's words remind us that every thought creates both a chemical change in the body and an electrical change in the nervous system. Thoughts contribute to a person's energy level, pain threshold, ability to accomplish one's goals and the health of personal and professional relationships.
To reverse, perhaps many years of negative thoughts, simply wearing a smile might not be enough to change your mood or experience. If you change only your thoughts and don't allow those changes to integrate into your actions, you are not likely to accomplish a real change in your life or yourself.
Sitting on the couch and thinking, "I will exercise every day," you won't see a better outcome in your physical health if you do not get off the couch and do something that proves you exercise every day. Sitting on the couch thinking about it is, Wishful thinking. You need to put in sweat equity to gain the physical health you desire.
Get off the couch, put on your tennis shoes and go out the door for a brisk 30-minute walk is a good start. Then, decide to walk every day for exercise and pleasure. Do the same thing each day adding a little more time each day. This will result in walking further and further, until walking every day becomes an enjoyable habit and you look forward to it. In fact, your mind will crave it.
Is it necessary to accentuate the positive to eliminate the negative? Yes, absolutely, however, you need to take positive actions too. As Einstein wisely stated, "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results."
Accentuating positive thoughts coupled with positive actions equals positive results. Doing the same thing over and over won't become different results.
