Quit Negative Thinking – 3 Steps to Stopping Negative

Thinking and Self Defeat

By

Expert Author Shannon E Cook

Many people struggle with negative thoughts that hold them back from achieving their true potential in life. Mindset is hugely important in any endeavor – the direction the energy is flowing makes a huge difference. If your thoughts align with your goals, your goals are much more likely to be achieved. Negative thoughts send energy the opposite direction and impede or halt any progress on your goals and challenges. Here are 3 steps to stopping negative thinking and the corresponding self defeat:

1.       Let go of your anger at others. Holding negative energy internally takes up space where positive energy could reside. First, let yourself feel the full experience of the anger. Note how it effects your physically as well as emotionally. Next, allow for the possibility that the person who wronged you did the best he or she could with whatever survival tool he or she has to work with – even if these tools are destructive. Then, visualize releasing this person into the universe, to whatever God has in store for him or her. Feel yourself releasing the responsibilities that come with desiring revenge – it isn’t your job to punish that person anymore. Finally, begin thinking about what you learned and how this experience might benefit you in the future.

2.      Stop negative thinking cycles in their tracks. When a persistent negative thought comes into your head, say “cancel” or “stop” out loud and imagine a big red “X” through the thought. You can also slap your hand on a table or change activities to break that thought circuit.

3.      Begin to imagine your dreams, goals, and aspirations. Think of them in full sensory detail – the way it looks, smells, sounds, tastes, and feels to achieve this goal in present time. The more you do this, the more likely it is to be attracted into your life.
