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!
