Last post we talked about “catching” your negative thoughts. Every time you do this, they lose some of their power over you, because they cannot subconsciously influence your behavior. They can still affect you, even give you fear. But you know they are giving you fear, and that makes a difference.
Here’s what else happens…
Every time you notice a negative thought, it becomes categorized and labeled in your mind, and you will almost always notice that same thought again. Each time it gets weaker in its pull over you. And you start to notice other negative thoughts.
Slowly over time, you begin to notice more and more negative thoughts. Each time you start to reposition them. And each time this happens, you inch a little closer to the positive side of the equation. And then one day you wake up, and you are at 51 percent positive. And the second that happens, you have broken through! And you’re on the way to health, wealth, and success. Here’s why:
Changing your thinking and the way you think is an incremental process. It changes, step by step. But once you reach the magic 51 percent mark, now you’re on the positive side of the ledger.
Of course you still have negative thoughts sometimes. We all do. But thoughts feed on like thoughts. And once you are at 51 percent, you have a slight majority of positive ones to feed on. So soon it is 53 percent. Then 57. And it keeps going from there.
I don’t know that you ever get to the point you think positive all the time. I know I haven’t yet. But you do get to the point where you cross the line. And that manifests some positive results in your life. Which builds positive beliefs. Which creates more positive thoughts, creating a vicious cycle of success. Ain’t it great!
Yes, it is really great!!!
And the best thing about it is that U dont need find any good ideas instead of negative ones. When U label bad thought, all to do now is to undestand future terrible result of it. And from this moment Your mind can even go auto-working,turning - into + , till all Your thoughts are pure. And it really works!!
And You , Randy, as always give good plot for thinking..(positive:)
Yep, spot on. When you have a negative thought and don't spot it, you get more and more and suddendly you're on a spiral of negativity.
But if you really try, you can spin it into a positive thought and then sometimes you can get a spiral of positivity.
Positive thoughts attract more positive thoughts!
Everyone has sorrows that can not be named.
Positively! I did it this morning as soon as I saw the snow accumulating, I made a positive out of a negative ( my tag line for marysprints). I took a photo to send to my Texan friends so they can see the beauty of the sparkly white stuff surrounding the little pond with two ducks having the time of their life!
Rick Pitino, the successful basketball coach, writes down every day whether he was overall positive, negative, or neutral. Then, at the end of each month, he tallies up the percentage he was positive. His goal is to have 98% positive days in a month, but he says the best he's ever done is 70%.
I thought this was an excellent, and very practical, way to start monitoring your thoughts. It also forces you to be reflective at the end of each day.
Hi Randy...I totally agree that unless you consciously control your negative thoughts...they can infect your life and you get what Zig Zigler calls "Stinkin' Thinkin'"!
A trick I learned is when a negative thought crosses my mind, I immediately strongly state inside my head, "Cancel" almost like shouting a stain out of my clothes....I shout it out of my head. Then I work quickly to replace it with want "I want" instead.
Admittedly...in this day and time with some of my own personal challenges...I haven't been as good at doing this so thanks for the reminder to get back in the habit of using this technique!
yes randy, we call that became consciously of that ,an we can also add that if you know why you have that negative thoughts yow will know you very well, but certainly the first and most important step is consciously ofyour negative thoughts and feelings!!!!
This is an interesting journey. Having got to 51%, the Universe decided to throw me a real curve ball to test me since Randy's last post. For a couple of days I went right back down there but it soon passed and I am back up to 51%. It seems I need to be alert all the time and cannot afford to slip into complacency that I've 'got it'. Sure makes life interesting doesn't it?
Easter Blessings to y'all!
No one does anything "to" you. You only do it to yourself. Any thought-form can be collected, categorized and used against you. You create the weapon and you accept the weapon. Then you wonder why.
Since sexual energy is used to create a pathway to bring the nonphysical into the physical, direct that energy as well.
I've been working toward that 50+1% a long while! Lucy and Ethel at the candy factory - the faster the negative comes the more action to deal with it has to increase! You have to recognize the opportunity to input the positive when you can and thereby strenghtening your own resolve! Be the change you want to see! And springtime makes it so much more easy!
Bunny Hops to you!
I'm reading this again and again. Will you explain this ? Or Randy, can explain this about the energy pathways without being embarrassing ? I have not heard of this as a sexual energy.
Great way to look at it, Randy.
Thanks for helping me to continue to get towards that 51% and moving upwards!
Yes - I did somethign similar - that I made up when I was 18/19 and training as a Psychologist (finding the lecturers depressed and unhappy and i Didn't want to be like them!).
I had a check list - of 10 negative feeling and 10 positive At the end of each day I'd check which ones I felt, and check them lots if I felt it a lot.
The black patternss gave me insight into the emotions I felt the most. Then I'd spend time visualising who I wanted to be...
At the start of the month I was rather depressed - and by the end of the month, very few negative feelings were ticked, and the positive ones were checked out.
It worked amazingly for me - each time I've done it - to boost my energy and focus...
