The other time we looked at ‘influence of thoughts to young adults’. We saw how positive or negative thoughts play a tremendous part in shaping what really happens in our lives. We also looked at ‘how to control your thoughts’ and ‘how negative thoughts affect your life’. Today let’s look at reprogramming your mind into positive thoughts. Having healthy thoughts contribute largely to your success and well-being.
Negative thoughts have a bad impact in our daily life, they produce chemicals that weaken the body. Once negative thoughts take hold, they can be hard to change. We actually look for proof to confirm what we already think about ourselves. So, if you think others don’t like you, you will look for evidences to prove this. Your self-esteem, self-worth dies, you become a slave to your own thoughts.
Some examples of negative self-talk might sound like this: ‘I am too shy to speak in front of people’. ‘People don’t like me because of my body shape’. ‘I am not beautiful/handsome like my friends’. If you are in this bracket, the good news is that you can change negative thinking! The first step in changing is to become aware of negative thoughts.
Monitor your thinking patterns as you note negative thoughts running through your mind. Then try hard to replace negative thinking with positive self-talk: ‘I am confident and eloquent in speaking in front of people’. ‘I have an amazing body shape and people like me’. ‘I am pretty/attractive like my friends’. Such positive, happy thoughts produce chemicals that actually strengthen the body.
Negative words like ‘I can’t’, ‘I will never’ limit your strength and energy. Self-defeating thoughts need to be replaced to achieve self-worth and value. Instead of saying, ‘I can’t achieve anything great in life’ say, ‘I can achieve many great things in life’. This is what we refer to refocusing your thoughts in check. Doing this repeatedly will enable attainment of positive thoughts after a given time of period.
