Negative thinking is the reason that you don’t have what you want in your life right now. You may not realize this but everything that you have or don’t have today is a result of your previous thinking. You have limited yourself through your thoughts and if you truly want to get what you want then you have to change this.
We all experience negative thoughts from time to time. Some people experience them a lot. We all know people that seem to spend their lives complaining about everything. The world is against them and the reason they are in this position is always someone else’s fault.
If you have thoughts like this then you must change them immediately. It is not the government’s fault that you do not have a big house. Other people have big houses and are under the same government. The difference between you and them is the way that you think.
Optimism versus Pessimism
Are you an optimist or a pessimist? Here is a test for you. How do you feel when Monday morning comes around each week? Do you feel inspired and ready to go or have feelings of dread that the work week has started again?
Or how about this – someone that you know is making some money on the side through a business opportunity that they are involved in. They offer you the chance to get involved with the same opportunity. How do you react to this? Do you tell them that you are not interested right away or do you ask them to tell you more about it?
Optimism is the way to go in life. Being pessimistic about everything will just make you stand still and feel bad about the world. Your negativity will become your reality. This is a life law.
How do you feel about yourself?
When you think about what you have to offer the world how do you feel about this? Are you a confident person? Do you love yourself? If you are asked to do something that you would not normally be comfortable doing how do you feel about this? Do you see it as a challenge that you happily accept or do you want to run and hide?
Having high self esteem is very important on your journey to getting what you really want. You need to be prepared to move out of your comfort zone and take on new things that you have not done before.
One of the most effective ways to change how you think about yourself is to use positive affirmations. If you don’t know what these are then they are just statements that you read out loud or in your head about yourself every day.
So for example you can say “each day and in every way I am getting better and better” or “I believe in myself and I can achieve anything”. The best way to create a positive affirmation list is to write down the negative feelings that you have about yourself and then turn these into positive statements.
So for example if you do not like the idea of public speaking then your thoughts are going to be along the lines of “I will never be good at public speaking”. You can change this to “I am going to be one of the best public speakers in the world”.
Positive affirmations have a major impact on your subconscious mind. The more that you repeat them and take action against them the more your subconscious will believe and support the change that you want to make.
