Filtering negative thoughts

Filtering negative thoughts

■Filtering.

You magnify the negative aspects of a situation and filter out all of the positive ones.

For example, say you had a great day at work. You completed your tasks ahead of time and were complimented for doing a speedy and thorough job.

But you forgot one minor step.

That evening, you focus only on your oversight and forget about the compliments you received. This is very self-destructive, you owe it to yourself to be proud of the good that you do. Right at this moment you should concentrate on positive thinking.

You should absolutely take control of your thoughts and your own self-talk. You can control the situation in your mind, just visualize all the good that you did.

You must form the habit of believing in yourself and focusing on all the good that you do. Take control of your mind and focus on the positive things in your life. When you do this you will fill your mind with positive thinking.
■Taking Things Personally.

When something bad occurs, you automatically blame yourself.

For example, you hear that an evening out with friends is canceled and you assume that the change in plans is because no one wanted to be around you. This is far from positive thinking, you are letting your mind control you instead of you controlling it.

Sometimes we can be our own worst critic. Think good of yourself be proud of who you are. Take pride in the fact that you have friends focus on the positive don’t create unreal situations.

If your mind was focused on positive thinking you would never have to battle the thoughts that destroy your self-esteem and confidence.
■Misleading Damaging Thoughts.

You automatically anticipate the worst. You refuse to go out with friends for fear that you’ll make a fool of yourself. In this case you show no control over your mind or your thinking. You have the ability to believe in yourself and improve your self-esteem, but first you must begin with positive thinking.

Or one change in your daily routine leads you to think the entire day will be a disaster.

Accept the fact that bad things will happen but allow them to be just fleeting moments.

Don’t make more out of a bad situation then it really is, accept that something went wrong and just move on. “Milk Can Only Be Spilled Once” clean it up and move on. Actually take a minute and laugh at yourself for creating the situation.

Defeating Damaging Thoughts By Practicing Positive Thinking.

Keep that mind focused on good and positive things.
■Polarizing.

You see things only as either good or bad, black or white. There is no middle ground. You feel that you have to be perfect or that you’re a total failure.

Everyone has range, sometimes things go alright and sometimes they don’t. Learn to accept it and you will feel much more empowered. Anything less is just giving in to the negatives that are bound to happen in life, this can all be defeated through positive thinking.

I am telling you that this really works, you fill your mind with positive thoughts, focus on the good things in life and you will be a much happier person.

“If thou can’t believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.”

THAT is The Power of Positive Thinking. As much as you believe, that is what you shall receive.by Howard Platt
