Has negative thinking become so common in your life that it’s almost as though it’s a part of who you are? You may be noticing how your mind can become your own worst enemy because it conspires against you.
Every day, people’s minds rationalize their repetitive negative thoughts, thinking that by preemptively thinking of the worst that could happen, that they’re ensuring not being let down. As though, it was going to lessen the blow of disappointment. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. Being negative can stop you from taking the action necessary that is going to move you forward in your plans. It can also have you procrastinating to the point where you cause yourself even more stress. It’s time to put that behind you.
You have virtually unlimited potential. But by being negative, you’re stunting your potential before you even give something have a chance. You’re short changing yourself from being the person you could be, of what you could achieve and the life you could live. Life is too short to be negative.
Let’s take just one area of your life that would benefit from you being more positive: Your love life. Everybody likes being around a happy person. Like dogs, we can sense good and bad things about each other. Positivity, optimism and confidence are all attractive. I’ve found that people that are really negative don’t want to go out. They are often not open to meeting new people. They assume that nothing good is going to come of it. They’re not going to like anybody and nobody is going to like them. Because of it, they are blocked off and self-constricted to the point where they lessen the chances of good things from happening in their lives.
It’s time that you stop holding yourself back from happiness – that you break that negative cycle. It’s time that you train your mind to function from a healthy place; a place of rational positivity, appreciation and gratitude. You want to have your mind running healthy programs instead of going onto that same dark path of negativity. In doing so, you take control of your destiny and you become open to great things happening in your life.
