85 inspiring quotes to help overcome negative thinking.


Positive energy

It's a good thing to have thoughts. That's how we can generate ideas, solve problems, manifest our creative ability, etc. However, not all thoughts are good. 

There are some thoughts that you should never allow to become reality because they'll create havoc. You hear about all manner of evil happenings in our world. All these things were thoughts before they became reality.  For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, slanders, Matthew 15:19. 

Whatever energy you send off to the universe that's the same energy that it will give back to you. Don't expect to see good things happening in your life; if you're always emitting negative energy.
