You must think happy to be happy
You can’t be happy if you think toxic thoughts. Thoughts are habits in your mind reproduced into your physical world. Thoughts are things and what you think about comes about. If you think about happy things, happy people, happy situations, you will be happy. If you think toxic, angry thoughts, you will have an angry life with angry people and situations which cause anger.
If you want to know what a person thinks about, look at his life.
Toxic thoughts stop you from being happy because they pollute your mind. Just like toxic food can make your sick, toxic thoughts will make a sad, miserable life. How can you be happy by thinking thoughts which are not uplifting? You can’t. You will not be happy by thinking thoughts which do not support your goals. You will not be happy by thinking thoughts which are uncomplimentary to yourself and others.You will be happy by thinking about how you will feel when you reach your goal. You will be happy when you think about how capable you are. Being happy is a state of mind you create.
Don’t let the toxic thoughts of others stop you from being happy. When you hear others speak or act in a way that creates negative thoughts in your mind, purge those people from your life just as you would purge poisonous food from your physical body. Make it a habit to hang with people who are happy.

Napoleon Hill knew thoughts can make your life happy or unhappy. In his book LAW OF SUCCESS he tells us about the disaster of negative and toxic thinking: The subconscious mind makes no distinction between constructive and destructive thought impulses. It works with the material we feed it, through our thought impulses. The subconscious mind will translate into reality a thought driven by fear just as readily as it will translate into reality a thought driven by courage or faith.
You choose to be happy with happy thoughts
He said that toxic thoughts can lead you down into the valley of misery, failure, and poverty. Like the wind which carries one ship east, and another west, (your thoughts) will lift you up or pull you down, according to the way you set your sails of thought. It’s time you set you sails of thought on what makes you happy.
To be happy, you must create thoughts which will make you happy. Think of your subconscious or creative mind as soil. Your conscious thoughts are seeds that you plant in your subconscious mind and expect to reap in your outward life. In a garden, if you planted wheat, you would expect wheat to grow. You would never think of planting wheat and getting corn. It’s the same with your conscious thoughts. Toxic thoughts are like planting weeds in your mental garden which will never result in a happy relationship or a happy financial situation. If you think about and plant happy, positive, thoughts, you can expect happy, positive specific results to manifest in your life. If you dwell on negative, violent, sad, resentful thoughts, you can only expect to see a life filled with negativity, violence, sadness, and resentment. If you do not plant seeds in your creative mind, but haphazardly allow whatever blows in to fill your precious creative soil. This usually results in your fulfilling other people’s goals which will only make them happy.
Consider what would happen if you decided not to take control of your car when you are in the driver’s seat. It would swerve off the road, enter a place where it shouldn’t go, and you would end up with a disaster of a vehicle. That is not so different from your life. You are in the driver’s seat of your life and if you don’t take control with conscious thoughts, you could end up with disaster. By controlling your conscious mind, you can insert a new program in your creative mind. Just as a magnet attracts, the mind attracts the things equivalent of your most prominent thoughts. That is why it is impossible for a negative mind to attract positive things. If you think negative angry thoughts, you attract failure and despair. On the other hand, if you train your mind to think only positive, happy thoughts, you will be happy.
Emerson said, “The key to every man is his thought.” You are the result of your voluntary habitual thinking. You are where you are and what you are because of your established habits of thought. You may control your earthly destiny simply by exercising the privilege of shaping your own thoughts. The key to being happy is to think happy thoughts!
Thought control is only one way of using the Law of Attraction to bring you the life your want. Can you do it? Can you constantly think happy thoughts/ Can you really change the way you think? You can – and it’s worth it because whether you are happy depends on it. You have complete control over your mind. Consciously, think about what you are thinking about and make it a habit to replace toxic thoughts with happy thoughts. Isn’t it time for you to be happy?
