Your mind is more pliable than you think. Take a moment to think back to the last bad day you had. What caused it? Did a coworker say something negative? Did a partner not react to something the way you wanted them to? It all comes down to a single thought or action being replayed in your mind, creating a story in your head and leading to your bad day.
Now consider what would have happened if you had the ability to brush off your negative reaction and push aside the interaction to carry on with your day more positively. Once you flood your mind with a specific thought, you’ll begin naturally attracting things that align with that thought. So make it positive!
I invite you to pay pay attention to your thoughts and the words you speak out loud.
For the first few days, simply track your negative statements with a simple hash mark on a piece of paper, a small notebook, or a sticky note on the refrigerator, or your phone. You might be surprised at the number of negative statements you make. Negative statements include blaming, complaining, judging, criticizing.
You may choose to engage the help of a partner, spouse or coworker in this activity with the goal of simply raising your awareness of how often you have negative thoughts.
Then, for the next few days balance your negative statements with positive statements. For every negative statement, you owe a positive statement. Or simply practice reframing the negative statement into a positive statement.
If you choose to do it on your own, you can raise your awareness of negative statements by simply putting an elastic band on your wrist and switching hands each time you make a negative statement. This helps to bring unconscious negativity to the conscious. Once it's in the conscious, it's much easier to change and expand positivity, which is really important when manifesting the good things in life.
Thoughts become things ... so think the good ones!
