You probably heard of the holy trinity the body, mind and soul they control our lives and if one of them is negative our life turn crooked. In order for things to be on the wider and clear path the positive mindset must be activated.
Negative thoughts are one of the agent of failure, lost of self esteem, self hatred but cultivating the mindset of a positive thinker free us physically and spiritually from the darkness of life.
Negative thought hits everyone even those who teaches people how to get ride of it. But practice still makes perfect. In order to get rid of dark thoughts you have to embrace the light with the whole of your heart, mind, body and soul.

There are two ways to life and one is being ready to live, to face the reality and embrace it as its swings like a roller coaster, as it goes around and comes around.

Being ready is all about being prepared. Never underestimate your strength, you can make it because other people have walked that path before.
