Personal Development, Business, Finance, and Investing for Everyone
An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.
Respond less to negativity and life becomes more peaceful.
The good news is that YOU are in control of your mental environment, and when you change the way you think, you gradually master a new way to be. Here are 5 ways to quiet those negative voices in your head.
Today I am grateful for...
Be mindful of your tendency to over-emphasize the negative while overlooking the positives.
Negative thinking stops us from seeing and experiencing positive outcomes—even when they happen often. It’s like a mental block that filters our all the positive only letting in the negative, which can be very damaging. Do your best to be mindful of this tendency.
Try not to focus on the extremes.
We have a tendency to want to see things in black and white, all or nothing. And most of the time, we view anything less than perfect as being extremely bad. The truth is there’s a lot of grey area in between, and just because something isn’t perfect doesn’t mean it’s a failure or worst-case scenario.
Stop seeking negative signs from others.
We are often hasty to jump to negative conclusions, especially when it comes to interpreting signs and communication (or lack thereof) from others. This is especially true in our present digital age where we send short texts, reactions, or don’t respond at all. Jumping to negative conclusions causes us unnecessary worry, pain, frustration, and stress. We can’t assume anything about others, especially they’re doing or thinking.
Identify underlying triggers to negative self-talk.
To change the way you think, you have to be mindful of your thoughts. Instead of ignoring negative self-talk or blindly being a slave to it, pay closer attention to it and document it. Write down the thoughts when they come to you, and identify what triggered them.
Change your mantra.
A mantra is a usually a word, phrase, image, or sound that’s repeated to improve concentration, focus, and your overall mental landscape. It is often a centerpiece of meditation, but it is a useful tool for abolishing negative self-talk and positive change. Choose a mantra that’s important and relevant to you. The key is to remind yourself that you are good enough!
