1st point: Certain attributes of mental attitude attribute
to physical improvement
-Confidence
-Courage
-Commitment
-Control
-Purpose
Confidence
"Success builds upon itself, and slowly, it lays down a permanent route to change." - LaRae Quy
"Courage is the tendency to see life’s obstacles as challenges to be met rather than threats to be avoided." - LaRae Quy
Courage
Commitment
"A person who is fully committed can find a creative solution to almost any task." - LaRae Quy
Illness occurs in the mind before it manifests in the body
75-98%
of mental and physical illnesses come from our thought lives! - Dr. Caroline leaf
(obstacles are only as big as you make them!)
Control
"To be in control means that, through personal struggle, you can find ways to empower yourself and influence both the direction and outcome of your own life." - LaRae Quy
(You shape your destiny, rather than events shape your life)
Purpose
"everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.” - Isaiah 43:7 ESV
Point 2: physical health suffers from negative thinking. (evidence)
Summary:
Although having a positive/healthy mental attitude will not cure all mental and physical illnesses, it can, however, prevent 75-98% of them.

Leading causes of death in the U.S.
- A study by the American Medical Association found that stress is a factor in
75%
of all illnesses and diseases that people suffer from today.
- The association between stress and disease is a colossal
85%
(Dr Brian Luke Seaward)
-The International Agency for Research on Cancer and the World Health Organization has concluded that
80% of cancers
are due to lifestyles and are not genetic, and they say this is a conservative number (Cancer statistics and views of causes Science News Vol.115, No 2 (Jan.13 1979), p.23).
Meaning stress is the attributer to:
309,937
deaths each year in the U.S. (bare-minimum)
404,985
deaths each year in the U.S. (maximum)
(Based upon 2012-2013 leading causes of death chart)
Stress is caused by our reaction to circumstances in life.
Science and scripture show how we are wired for love and optimism (scripture: “So God created man in his own image...” Genesis 1:27) and so when we react by thinking negatively and making negative choices, the quality of our thinking suffers, which means the quality of our “brain architecture” suffers, and, in turn, our health. - Dr. Caroline leaf
Point 3: People can improve their physical health through mental stabilization. (how?)
Trust in God!
"Trust in the Lord with
all
your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In
all

your ways acknowledge him, and he
will
make straight your paths." (Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV)
