You’ve heard that we are what we eat.
But we also are what we think.
Few negative people see themselves as being negative.
When someone says can’t, do you say can?
I do not think the Pollyanna approach to positivity works for very long.
I prefer a more effective approach – and one that you can take for a test drive this very day—is to vow to balance every negative thought with a verifiable positive thought.
Whether the thought emanates from your mind or from the mouths of others.
Let’s try it now.
You’re always late is balanced with I’m always there for people when they need me (and I have a recent example to prove it).
I always put things off is replaced by Here’s something that I did before it was needed (with an example).
It’s always about you is balanced with Here’s the last time I put someone else’s needs and desires ahead of mine.
Does one of these negative thoughts come to mind?
This balancing process is private – not to be shared with others.
They are meant to balance off negative thoughts with actual positive thoughts – the one’s most of us forget while we are busy criticizing ourselves.
And it doesn’t mean that we can’t be even better.
How does it feel after a day of counterbalancing what’s wrong with what’s right?
It makes you feel good about yourself.
