Do You Commit These 7 Deadly Sins Of Thought?
"How do I change the way I think and react?"
"I don't know what I am doing wrong. People say I am negative."
"I am a complete mess. What do I change first?"
"I give up before I start anything. Help!"
Life would be just wonderful if you could recognize your negative thoughts and replace them with positive thoughts.
Negativity has this uncanny way of making its way into your thought patterns where it largely goes unrecognized.
So, how do you eliminate these negative thoughts?
The most important first step is to notice these negative thoughts and eliminate them on the spot.
If you then replace them with positive thoughts, you’ll notice a tremendous change in every aspect of your life.
Here’s a list of the seven deadly sins of thought and how to eliminate them fast.
“I’ll do it tomorrow.”
The truth is you're never going to feel like doing what needs to be done. We all fool ourselves into thinking there will be a better time in the near future. Stop being the procrastinator!
What can you now?
“I can’t do this. I can’t stick with anything.”
If you don't think you can do something, you'll probably prove yourself right. This is especially true with the big stuff. Learn to persevere.
Prove you can _________ (fill in the blank)?
Thinking that someone else’s success impacts you negatively.
It's erroneous to believe that only a limited number of people can be successful. There's room for everyone!
How will you change your thinking from now on?
“It’s too late for me.”
We all have missed opportunities from our past, but that doesn't mean it's too late. People in their 60's have attended medical school and law school. Others don't get married or have children until later in life.
How will you prove it's NOT too late? What's on your list?
“I’ll never be successful.”
Everyone fails at something along the way to success. The good news is that failure can be the best way to learn. But focusing on your failures just causes you to feel bad all the time.
Make your list! Do it.
“Why is this happening again?”
Unpleasant things just happen. It's a normal part of life. However, just like our failures, if we spend our time dwelling on them, we make ourselves miserable.
What will you avoid dwelling on (be specific)? Hold yourself to it!
“I can be happy once I have (accomplished or earned) _____.”
Have you been putting off happiness? How will you change this bad habit today?
Negative thinking has an enormous impact on your success happiness in life.
It’s important to recognize these negative thought patterns and squash them immediately.
