Weekly Reflection

4 Secrets Of Optimistic People
Posted on Saturday, July 26, 2014 in Weekly Reflection

People deal with troubling circumstances every day.  People typically react with a negative attitude to these issues.  Too often  though,  people take  this negative

attitude and make it part of their personality. So, how can we turn our frowns upside down?  We need to learn to be optimistic.  Let’s examine 4 secrets of optimistic people.

1. They Express Gratitude.  Optimistic people rarely talk about what they don’t have; it’s almost always about what they do have. You may not live in your dream house yet, but you can be thankful that you’re not homeless.  You may not drive a BMW, but at least you don’t have to ride the bus to work.  Do you see the point?  Life will NEVER be perfect.  It’s all about how you look at it.  Most people have it worse that we do.  If we want to be optimistic, we need to be thankful for the good we already have, not what we are lacking.

2. They Volunteer.  Optimistic people aren’t focused on themselves.  This is about shifting the focus from ourselves to others.  Just give it a try.  Go help an elderly person with some housework.  Go visit someone who has been sick or is in the hospital.  Studies have shown that people are much more happy and satisfied when they are focusing on helping others and not on their own problems.

3. They Notice the Good.  Optimistic people always seem to look on the bright side.  They are able to find that silver lining.  This isn’t something that comes naturally.  This is one part of optimism that we must practice.  It is very difficult to look for something positive when you are faced with dreadful situations like death, poverty, and sickness.  While it may not appear right away, an optimistic person keeps looking for the positives.

4. They Change Negative Self-Talk.  Optimistic people think positively about themselves.  Typically, when people look in the mirror they begin to pick out all of their flaws, wish they were different, and insult themselves for not being better.  Much of this is spurred on by our culture’s standard for beauty, which is unbelievably distorted.  So, what is the point?  Don’t be so hard on yourself.  No one is flawless.  Focus on the good things and change the negative self-talk into positive thoughts about yourself.

Life is so much better when we focus on the positive side. Consider this, we know that God helps us (Matthew 6:25-34), we know that God protects us (2 Corinthians 1:10), and we know that God causes all things to work together for the good of His will (Romans 8:28).  God provides these blessings because He wants us to be joyful.  He wants us to praise Him for the blessings He provides us with.  There are way too many positives in this life to wallow around in all the negatives.  Let’s learn to be optimistic people.

Friday Night Meeting

 

geoff-freindThis reference for Major Geoff Freind’s ministry is given by
Captain Ebbenish Kabula, The Territorial Youth Secretary of
The Salvation Army Zambia Territory)

July 18, 2014 @ 8:30 p.m. at Wesley Methodist Church Klang with Major Geoff & Lyn Freind

In January 2009 while holidaying in Busselton, Western Australia Geoff
was prompted by God to start writing the stories that had impacted his life and ministry. His first book “Enjoy the Journey” has become a best seller and has raised more than $100,000.00 to support The Salvation Army Chikankata hospital in Zambia and The Salvation Army Howard hospital in Zimbabwe. His second book, “A Great Journey” has also impacted thousands of readers and continues to impact around the world.

Geoff has recently published his new book which he has called “Thank
you for the Journey” and this book will definitely become a best seller.
God’s anointing is on Geoff’s ministry and in his new book he writes about his amazing journey to Zambia when he went to work at the Chikankata Hospital in Zambia.

Hundreds of people around the world have been impacted by Geoff’s
books and many have come to faith in Jesus Christ. Geoff will share some of these amazing stories when he delivers a powerful message of how God has blessed his ministry.

The first time I met Major Geoff Freind, I came to see that he is a true man of God and his messages were a must hear for anyone who wanted to be an agent of change and bring revival into their own personal life. Listening to him speak gave me the enthusiasm to want to read his books and as you read page after page from his inspiring books they become a great stimulus to help you to move from where you are to where you want to be in your relationship with God. His books have brought light to hundreds of people in Zambia, Malawi and Zimbabwe who had lived their lives in darkness. The pages of his books have brought hope to the hopeless, encouragement to the discouraged and salvation to the lost.

Recently, I was honoured to be part of a mission team which had travelled to Zambia from Australia under the leadership of Major Freind. It was my privileged to transport the mission team from one place to another as Major Freind ministered the Good News of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to many different places in the Zambia Territory. Major Freind would speak at Lusaka, Chikankata and Livingstone. His preaching and teaching was very powerful and many souls were won to Jesus Christ. Many patients at Chikankata mission hospital were healed with the power of the Holy Spirit and broken marriages were restored. His visit brought revival to The Salvation Army in Zambia and all those people he spoke to will never be the same again.

Personally, I have been encouraged through reading his book A Great Journey which has been a great encouragement in my own journey. I really did love every bit of this book. I learnt from the pages of this book to rely on the sovereignty of God in everything that I do. I was reminded again that it is important for every believer to seek the Kingdom of God first and the rest of the things in life will follow. The chapter in this book on When God Waters the Seed, Amazing Things Happen rekindled my trust in God in a very powerful way at a time when I needed.
