Believing in negative thoughts is the single greatest obstruction to successCharles F. Glassman
Stop wallowing in self-pity….it profits nothing.
Do away with fear. And doubt. Fear is the biggest enemy of mankind. Fear produces a myriad of negative thoughts. Fear destroys. Fear will cripple you and torment you. Fear will eventually drive you to selfishness in an attempt to find peace.
Be strong and courageous. Avoid negative thinking. A negative person sees something wrong with everything. Listen, you’re good enough. You’re well able to do that ‘thing’ you’ve been procrastinating on. You have what it takes to bring that dream to reality.
Be positive. Expect some good things to happen. Be transformed by a renewed mindset. A growth mindset. Think only positive thoughts and achieve victory in whatever you do. Go for your dream and get it. You don’t have to be perfect to get started – perfection comes along the way. Get started now.
Here are the 5 ways to conquer negative thoughts and achieve your dreams like a boss:
1.Have a mind-blowing vision of what you desire
Dream big. Stretch your imagination as far as you can. Let that imagination, that vision be so big that it scares you. See it in your mind. That which you desire to achieve. Don’t hold back. Believe it. Belief is very important. Belief breathes life into your vision and brings it to reality.
But, disbelief is a negative force which will drain your energy leaving you weak and discouraged. Belief gives you the courage to dream big and confidence to take on whatever has to be done to realise your dream.
Believe you can and you will. If you can see it – you will own it and live it. The vision becomes a reality. You’ll live it in real life.
2.Write the vision down
As humans, our memories fail us at best of times. Write your vision down on paper or digital device of your choice. Writing your vision is powerful. Writing your dream down is a great way to keep it in sight and check your progress.
When negative thoughts hit you, get hold of your written goal and make positive declarations to counter the negative thoughts. Believe in your positive affirmations. Believe in your ability to bring your dream to reality. Hold fast to your beliefs – no matter what.
Use your written vision as a daily reminder of what you’re working towards. It becomes a written statement of intention to achieve the goal. Looking at your written goal everyday gives clarity of vision as well as motivation.
Writing your vision down also provides a permanent record which you can refer to years down the line and be pleased to see the amazing progress you will have made. It’s a satisfying feeling.
3.Master the territory you wish to conquer
What do you wish to achieve? What do you see? What are you focused on? What is that big vision you would like to see come to pass? That is the territory you have to possess. Own it. Make it yours….and you can.
Read, read, read. Set out to study the area you’re dreaming of getting into. If it’s sales, study sales. If it’s social media marketing, study social media marketing. Whatever area you wish to master there’s endless resources to help you on your quest.
Read related books and articles. Attend related seminars and do the courses to increase your knowledge and understanding of the area. This will boost your confidence.
By reading, attending seminars and doing courses, not only are you educating yourself (and this is pivotal to success) but you’re setting in motion a growth mindset. You’re becoming a better ‘you’.
Remember – if you input the right information into your ‘internal hard drive’ (your mind) it will eventually show in your life. It will show in the quality of decisions that you make and the improved quality of life that you’ll live.
Leaders read. Read if you want to be a leader. Study and keep abreast of developments, opportunities and challenges in the area of your choice.
Territories are owned by leaders only. Go out there and possess your territory.
4.Grow your faith and banish fear
Fight fear. Fight negative thoughts. Fear will stop you in your tracks. Fear will tell you ‘you can’t do it’. ‘It’s too big for you’. ‘You don’t have the knowledge required to do this’. ‘Who do you think you’re – it’s not for people like you’. And, more – trash.
Fear is an enemy of progress. Banish it now. Be courageous. Exercise faith. Have confidence in what you’re believing in. Keep going and don’t be put off until you get hold of your dream. Let your actions come from a place of belief in order to possess your reality.
A garden needs constant watering to thrive and produce life. Your vision or dream needs to be kept alive if it is to become a reality and see the light of day. Water your vision by listening to related audio teachings everyday to keep it alive.
Be encouraged. Stay motivated. Build your faith. Motivational messages will build confidence and increase your knowledge. Motivational audio teachings will keep your hope alive. Listening to daily audio motivation will give you the conviction that you can achieve your vision.
5.There’s power in the words you speak
Declare it. Speak it. Verbalise it.
That picture in your mind. That dream. Create reality by speaking out your vision. The words we speak become ‘things’. They manifest in real life. Speak only those things that you would like to see appear in your life. Speaking negative words will produce negative ‘things’.
Some times as you work towards achieving your dream, you will have negative thoughts and emotions. You overcome these negative thoughts and emotions by speaking out positive words like “I can do this and I will“!
We speak what we already have within us. This is why it’s important to keep feeding ourselves positive information. If you feed on negative information, your mouth will speak negative affirmations. If you feed on positive information, you’ll find yourself speaking positive affirmations.
The words you speak have power. They become real things. Even the bible says “the tongue has the power of life and death” (Proverbs 18:21)
Enjoy the journey to achieving your dreams. Remember – don’t be afraid. Have courage instead. Stand strong.
Our thoughts determine our actions. The thought comes first, then the action. Aim to develop a growth mindset, a strong mindset, a positive mindset then you’ll achieve success and have the victory you desire. It’s a process – not an overnight thing.
Live life to the full
