How to Think Positive and Eliminate Negative Thoughts :)

Negative thoughts are like viruses - they attack and spread quickly affecting your quality of life. Consider how one negative thought can affect your entire day, your relationships, confidence level, and ability to think rationally or give birth to new ideas. Through positive reinforcements and a strong commitment to yourself you can stop negative thoughts in their tracks, here is how:

  • Thought awareness - As soon as a negative thought enters your brain counter it with a positive one.
  • Surround yourself with positive people and positive things.
  • Create a personal mantra and repeat it every day until it becomes apart of your daily regimen.
  • Count your blessings
  • Volunteer - Removing your self from the equation by focusing on the needs of others in time will change your outlook on life. You are more fortunate than you think.
  • Let it go - Avoid dwelling on the past or things you have no control over.
  • Get an accountability buddy - this could be your best friend, mentor, spouse, or spiritual advisor who encourages you to do good, helps you stay focused, and will walk the extra mile with you.
  • Start a Money Jar. For every negative you must deposit 25 cents or more into your money jar.
  • Post positive affirmations around your workspace and home
  • Practice saying positive things about yourself and other people
