There are many positive thinking activities available that are designed to train participants in various ways to shift their thinking and attitudes into a positive framework. Some are general and apply to the positive thinking concept no matter where it is applied; others are specifically designed to reinforce particular types of thought processes applicable to business, personal relationships, school or others.
For example some positive thinking training resources:
- Help participants determine their values along with any differences between their career objectives and goals so that they can take positive steps to resolve differences;
- Introduce participants to the ideas behind determining ‘excellence’ strategies from other people;
- Show participants how to problem solve by utilizing their inherent strengths and abilities;
- Detail how to alter an undesirable view of their behavior and replace it with one that they will see in a more positive light;
- Help participants to identify and explore negative beliefs that are keeping them from achieving success and replace them with positive beliefs that they can implement for better self esteem and behavior.
These are just a few of the positive thinking training activities that are readily available on line via the Internet. There are also a significant number of training exercises that build skills; compete fairly; resolve conflicts; and more. These generally include standard tests that enable participants to assess their progress toward positive change. Free downloads of these materials are also available online.
Conflict resolution is greatly aided through positive thinking and there is even a Conflict Resolution Network that can be reached online from http://www.crnhq.org They offer many free downloads including a very-thorough conflict resolving game that is a challenging new alternative to normal debating. In this game, participants deal with an issue selected from numerous possibilities including domestic violence, immigration and development and the environment, with the aim of resolving the conflicts inside it. The end goal, of course, is to teach people how to resolve real conflicts occurring in real-life situations that will almost certainly be faced. Three primary role tasks of the game are analysis, options and solutions.
Most positive thinking activities are intended for adults and high-school age teenagers, although there are a few available for younger children. In any case noone is too young or too old to seek help on positive thinking for a happier life.
