I know how it feels to be stuck in a negative thinking. I spent a long time speaking negatively to myself, thinking negative thoughts, believing negative beliefs. I’ve been there, done that and even got the t-shirt…
One very important thing that I learned is that what we allow ourselves to think becomes our entire belief system and also our reality.
Let me say that again in case you didn’t catch it.
The thoughts that we allow ourselves to think about and focus on become our entire belief system and also our reality.
If you expect negative things to come your way then you will not only be on the lookout for them but then when something that you perceive as negative happens you will also tell yourself, “I knew that would happen!” and you have completed a self-fulling prophecy. This is also known as the law of attraction.
You will then continue in that cycle with each event and thought that you experience. Your beliefs and thoughts will continue to reinforce your experiences and vice verca.
But if you allow yourself a different set of thoughts you will react differently to the same negative things that happen in life.
You will need to replace those thoughts with new ones.
Instead of giving into the negativity of it you will be able to say, “This is a challenge to overcome” and you will look for the good in the situation and you will find ways that you can grow and learn from the experience. It will indeed become a positive experience because of the action that you took. When all said and done you will feel on top of the world!
The only difference between those two scenarios are the mindsets. I have seen many instances where two people go through the same difficulty and the negative person digs themselves deeper into a hole whereas the other person comes out a better person. The second person isn’t better than the first, they just chose to handle their thoughts differently and therefore their actions are completely different allowing them a different outcome.
To move from negative to positive thoughts I suggest the following:
- Pay close attention to your thoughts and the way that you talk to yourself.
- Write down the thoughts and self talk for a day and see if you’re allowing the thoughts that you desire.
- Use afformations to build new thought and self talk patterns in your life.
You will eventually start to have new beliefs and you will be able to create a whole new belief system for yourself! You may not even think that it will make a difference (I’ve been there too!) but you will surprise yourself when you start to see changes in the way that you think and look at things.
The thoughts that you think have so much power and they even wire your brain into different patterns. It’s amazing how it works! A while ago I read a very powerful post on this topic called How Positive Thinking Rewires The Brain. I highly recommend you read it!
