This is kind of linked to my last post about feeding the good wolf, how’s that going by the way? I stumbled across a post of Facebook linking back to a website www.marcandangel.com which features practical tips for productive living. The article I read is called ’30 things to start doing for yourself’
I wanted to share my favourite one; number 29……
Start focusing on the possibility of positive outcomes – The mind must believe it CAN do something before it is capable of actually doing it. The way to overcome negative thoughts and destructive emotions is to develop opposing, positive emotions that are stronger and more powerful. Listen to your self-talk and replace negative thoughts with positive ones. Regardless of how a situation seems, focus on what you DO WANT to happen, and then take the next positive step forward. No, you can’t control everything that happens to you, but you can control how you react to things. Everyone’s life has positive and negative aspects – whether or not you’re happy and successful in the long run depends greatly on which aspects you focus on.
Take 10 minutes out of your day to read the other 29 things here. It will be worth your time and might help change your week for the better.
