Welcome to Motivate Me this week.
I was pleasantly surprised by the positive feedback on the Positive Affirmations project. It resulted in a lot of emails in my inbox mainly asking how to avoid a negative mood.
And that brings me to this week’s topic.
This is how you guarantee a failure
It’s pretty simple really, and it’s summed up in this quote:
“… a positive attitude is no guarantee of success. However, it is accepted that a
negative attitudes come close to guaranteeing failure. “
The fact is, there is no way to avoid that moment when the world seems to fall on you, when negativity seems to be the order of the day. What you can do is use tools and techniques to counter this negativity and overcome it.
Negativity can come from within or from without.
Positive affirmations have been shown to boost self-confidence and strengthen determination. That’s the key here. When we let negativity take control, no matter what our task, the chances of success are dramatically reduced.
Don’t forget your ABCDs either. Another powerful tool to help you overcome challenging emotions / events. Read about them here. All of my colleagues are familiar with the ABCD framework and it is one of our core tools.
Another powerful tool is the Programming Sequence, which I recommend to every client to listen to on a daily basis. We need to take time to heal ourselves, and that is just as important to our mental and physical health.
Of course, if any of you reading this were to suffer a physical injury that required rest, you would. However, when we feel a cloud of negativity haunting us, for many we shrug our shoulders and move on without putting time aside to face that negativity and resort to tools that will enable us to move into a better one Space to ascend.
To conclude, instead of guaranteeing errors, This increases your chances of success is a better line to unsubscribe. There are no certainties in life, but you can use tools (like the ones mentioned above) that will help you build a platform on which to achieve great things.
