A proverb says, “As a man thinks, so is he.” That means if you think positive thoughts, you are more likely to get positive results and if you think negatively, you are more likely to get negative results. Someone says, “That’s hogwash!” Well, scientists have put it to the test. USA Today reported that MIT researchers found that the attitude a subject took towards a pain-relief pill made a difference in its effectiveness. If the person believed a pill was a new and expensive drug for pain, it was more likely to be effective than if the person thought it was either generic or less expensive. All the pills were identical, only the attitudes were different. This is Just A Minute.
