Power of positive thought

I haven't read "The Secret", but from what I gather, it tells you that the secret to getting what you want is positive thinking. Now, I don't know if that applies to things like winning the lottery, but I do believe that you can affect what happens to you on a personal (i.e., within yourself) level.

On the other hand, I think negative thinking can make bad things happen. Ever think "I haven't had a cold in awhile"? I swear it is bound to bring on a cold the next day. Maybe subconsciously you can feel the cold coming on which triggers the thought. What do I know?! I do know that every time I think that I get sick.

However, if I do feel a cold is coming on, I think "I'm not going to let this get me. I don't have time for this." Usually, it works. I keep working out and keep moving. It works for me. Resting usually makes it worse for me, although I know many people are the quite the opposite. My mom (a nurse) usually says to keep working out as long as there is 1) no fever, 2) no stomach issues or 3) no chest congestion.

Why am I bringing this up? Well, I'm trying to positive think my way out of a cold right now. So far, so good. Wish me luck!

Details and pictures of my trip to Hell and back this past weekend will be posted soon.
