How do these two days go together? They don’t but they do. Positive thinking can change how you see what others have done and although its easier to blame someone sometimes you have to take a look in the mirror at yourself. We are sometimes our biggest enemy. The way we talk to ourselves, handle ourselves, and do for ourselves can come from how we think.
Today I am encouraging every reader to take some stock. I have said so many times in many blogs and it is true that sometimes my ability to blame others stopped me from being able to call a spade a spade in my own life. I was caught up more in who the message was from instead of the message itself. However I feel like my life took a turn for the better when I took the time to address myself. How I was thinking wasn’t healthy for me and those around me.
Positive thinking is hard for some who only have a negative mindset. We all know them. You can say the sun is bright and they will say it’s too hot. You can say I can’t wait to hang out with friends and they say ugh I don’t even have any. This is draining depending on what stage of life you are on. If you find that you constantly are high fiving and in agreement with a negative Nancy in your life, its only because you are just as negative in your own life.
I find when I forget to be grateful about my life its easy to dip into negativity. All of sudden I get less patient, my temper is flared, and then my speech changes. I start doubting myself and simple tasks are hard. Negativity has a way at eating at productivity. You cant attack your goals with a negative mindset and although you want to blame circumstances and situations the person that is at fault is you.
So lets take charge of ourselves and not point the finger out but point the finger in and change our mindset!
