Negative thinking is a prison that leads to a limited life.
The more you focus on the negative, the more you give power to what you don’t want.
The more you give power to what you don’t want, the more what you don’t want will manifest in your life.
How you view a situation, person or place will determine your reality. Your reality is created by how you see it.
If you are not conscious, your mind will rob you of happiness and cause you suffering.
Negative thinking serves nothing other than to keep you from being open to possibilities and keeps you small.
So here are a few important keys to help you deal with negativity.
- Awareness – Become aware that just because the negative voice in your mind is telling you something, doesn’t mean it’s true. It’s not simply your thoughts that are important, but the power and importance you give them. As you begin to observe your thoughts and witness them, they begin to lose their power over you.
- Question – As you observe your negative thinking, you can then begin to question those voices. You will realize that your mind often plays old tapes, some of which are not even your voice but belong to your parents. So ask yourself: ”Is this fact or fiction?”, “Whose voice is this really?”. Question your mind.
- Choose – Do not indulge your negativity. Be firm with your mind. As you do this, it becomes easier for you choose the actions you want to take rather than being run by the limitations of the inner critic. You do not have to be run by it. When the negative self talk starts, simply turn to it compassionately and say, “Thank you, I appreciate your input and I am not listening to you right now.” Each time you take an action towards what you do want, you reclaim your power and strengthen your capacity to manifest your intention.
Your thoughts are powerful and not only affect you but everyone around you.
You have a responsibility to choose your thoughts wisely.
You have the power to change your reality by changing what you focus on.
