In using positive thinking creatively, you must first establish the motivation for doing so. Next, you must make yourself aware of any fears that you have, for your fears can be your undoing. And, it is necessary to select positive imaging thoughts and affirmations to counteract these fears. Then, the positive imaging must be reinforced on a regular basis until the fear no longer has strength. This is difficult, for quite often when you recognize the positive you also recognize the negative, and it is easier for us to reinforce the negative which has already been set in motion than it is to create a new habit pattern with our emotions. Emotions, then, are the next step. They must be added to the positive programming so that it may manifest as a reality for you. Some of us have been trained to set goals, and to mentally and visually project through positive thinking and affirmations what you wish to physically manifest. But, you get disappointed when they don't occur. You should always set goals, but you should also be aware that it is often a necessity to change goals along the way, as you gain more insight into the appropriateness of a particular time. We are the sum of what we have created in the past and what we can create now. We exist in the continuous flow of our creations, and the flow is altered and varies momentarily, from the influences of these creations. To think that we can make instantaneous great leaps is positive thinking, and is theoretically possible, but most of us must grow one step at a time. Your belief structure now; your attitudes, emotions, goals and hopes now, will help counter your negative creations of the past, and will help you project a more positive future. Since you are at the helm, or the point of your continuous flow of creation, you can direct it wherever you wish. The momentum you developed in the past, and its vector points, have a residual effect on the speed and acceleration you may utilize in changes now, without going completely off the track or out of the banks of the flow. That is why it is necessary to focus as much as possible now, in order to aim for new horizons in the future.

Relation of Ideas One to Another—Some minds are more like an old curiosity shop than anything else. Many odd bits and ends of truth have been picked up and stored (p.668) away there; but they know not how to present them in a clear, connected manner. It is the relation that these ideas have to one another that gives them value. Every idea and statement should be as closely united as the links in a chain. When a minister throws out a mass of matter before the people for them to pick up and arrange in order, his labors are lost, for there are few who will do it.—The Review and Herald, April 6, 1886. (Evangelism, 648, 649.)
Effort Proportionate to Object of Pursuit—The thoughts must be centered upon God. We must put forth earnest effort to overcome the evil tendencies of the natural heart. Our efforts, our self-denial and perseverance, (p.667) must be proportionate to the infinite value of the object of which we are in pursuit. Only by overcoming as Christ overcame shall we win the crown of life.—The Ministry of Healing, 455 .
