    “As a man thinks in his heart so is he…” and “out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” These are some of the few verses that really encapsulate how important positivity and positive thinking is. We are told do not worry because worrying adds no day to our lives or inch to our heights and to focus on today. But how does this positive thinking work?

    5 things to do when you don't know what to do
