How to Rid Yourself of Negative Thoughts
A positive attitude is one of the stepping-stones to success. Everyone has a negative thought occasionally and you may be able to counteract it with a positive thought. When negative thoughts fill your mind, it may be time to change your mindset. But, how do you do that?
Become aware of your thoughts.
The trick is to take control of your thinking. Frequently ask yourself, "What am I thinking right now?" Learn to recognize your negative thinking patterns and replace them with realistic, positive alternatives.
2. When a negative thought enters your mind, immediately replace it with a positive thought.
Negative thought: "I can't believe that jerk cut in front of me!
Positive thought change: “I'm not rushed and in a hurry like that guy. He must be extremely stressed."
Negative thought: "I can't believe the poor service at this restaurant today!"
Positive thought change: "The waitress must be having a bad day because the service is usually great here."
Take time out as often as you can to read inspirational, positive quotes and articles. Read about the lives of successful and happy people.
4. Do things you love.
Do at least one thing every day that you enjoy doing.
5. Visualize your life, as you want it to be.
Create a visual map. When negative thoughts intrude, look at your map to remind you of what you want.
