Depending on your point of view, a glass of water can be half empty or half full. Depending on your plans the rain can be good for the garden, you have planted or bad for the picnic. Depending on your attitude a problem can be an obstacle or a challenge.
These are obvious, clear and understandable ways in which our thinking affects our experience. But in more subtle ways we know that thoughts of fear, anger, worry and resentment can make us sick and diminish our effectiveness. While thoughts of confidence, determination, love and forgiveness can make us well and increase our performance.
If we extend into the metaphysical realm, we come across the idea that thoughts will telepathically attract their equivalent. In other words, positive thoughts will attract positive people and events, and negative thoughts will attract negative people and events.
This is less obvious than the other examples, but millions of people are coming to acknowledge this concept and a careful and honest appraisal of your thoughts and your life will clearly demonstrate the effect.
Then there is the deeper esoteric idea shared by many spiritual teachers around the world that your experience is determined by your belief, by what you believe in. And both ancient and contemporary history are full of examples where the power of thought in the form of prayer, belief and conviction changed physical conditions, events, and circumstance.
