Overcoming Negative Thought

Negative thought is one of the things we must avoid in our life because negative thoughts tend to materialize than positive thoughts. You may have noticed how fast negative things happen before you even start thinking about them. This is one of the reasons why negative thoughts aren’t good for us.

The second reason being that it drain us of the motivation we can use for other projects of other good things. This doesn’t really worth it. Instead of us to focus on the good things of our live, we dwell so much on the negative thoughts. Negative thinking appears to be more prevalent than positive thinking. It seems that with most people, positive thinking requires some effort, whereas, negative thinking comes easily, and often uninvited.

This has much to do with education and the environment one has been living in. If you have been brought up in a happy and positive environment, there is more probability that it will be easier for you to think positively. However, if you have been brought up under poor or difficult situations, you will more probably be inclined to negative thinking.

We view the world through our predominant mental attitude. If our thoughts are positive, that is fine, but if they are negative, our life and circumstances would probably mirror these negative thoughts. If you believe that you are going to fail, you might unconsciously sabotage every opportunity to succeed.

If you are too shy of meeting new people, or avoid having close relationships, you will do everything to avoid people and relationships, and then complain that you are lonely and nobody loves you. Instead of becoming more positive and overcoming your fears, you think how difficult it is to succeed or to connect with people, and you expect to be a failure or stay lonely.

The impact of negative thoughts are so drastic to our lives and we should all strive to overcome it….

Here are some important tips that can help you overcome negative thoughts:

Be conscious of your thoughts

Some of us are so much engrossed in the negative thoughts that we think about it unconsciously. We should try and be conscious of our thoughts and get hold of it. Every time you catch yourself thinking a negative thought, replace it with a positive one. If you catch yourself visualizing failure, immediately visualize success instead. If you hear yourself using negative words in your conversation, switch to positive words.

Instead of saying, “I cannot”, say, “I can”. Most of the time you can, but choose to say “cannot”, due to fear, laziness or lack of self-esteem. Do you repeat negative words and phrases in your mind? Change them to positive ones. Yes, this requires you to be more alert, and to put forth some effort.

You want to change negative thinking into positive thinking, don’t you? Allow more positive attitude into your life. Have more faith in yourself and expect positive results. Affirmations and visualization can take you a long way in this direction.

Decide that from today, from this very moment, you are leaving negative thinking behind you, and starting on the way toward positive thinking and behavior

Say positive words out

Whenever a bad thought comes into your mind, speak the positive words out to your own ears. We most times believe in words that we hear than thoughts and that’s why you should try and speak those words out.

Read positive quotes

You can make this your daily routine. I like to place Post-It notes with positive quotes on my computer, fridge door, and mirror as reminders to stay positive.

One of the most popular quote that you can use is:

Watch your thoughts, they become words.

Watch your words, they become actions.

Watch your actions, they become habits.

Watch your habits, they become your character.

Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.

In conclusion, let’s take note of our thoughts and be careful of what we accommodate.
