As human beings, we tend to be harder on ourselves than others. We beat ourselves up over things that outsiders may not even notice, often times dwelling on the negative instead of focusing on the positive.
If you are one of those people, your brain may be on a loop similar to this: “I am not very bright. No one likes me. I am not as successful as _____. My nose is too big. I’ll never be what I dreamed I could be.” Sound familiar?
Allowing negative thoughts to take over can actually prevent you from moving forward in life and in business.
So in some ways, you are setting yourself up for failure and disappointment because that is what you choose to focus your attention on. Not to mention, you are creating an unhealthy environment for yourself and others when you do this.
So why do you allow it?
Well, I don’t know your personal situation, but the most likely of reasons is because you’ve been doing it for so long, you don’t really know how to stop. But the good news is that you can make a change right now. And it is easier than you might think.
Just like negative thoughts manifest more negativity and unhappiness, optimism and positivity have the power to bring about happiness and fulfillment.
So today, I have a little gift for you – something that will remind you of the positive things happening in your life right now and help you live in the positive each day.
It is called the 3 Good Things worksheet and you can grab the free (no opt-in required) download right here.
It’s a printable pdf where you will list the three good things that happen each day. Print it, write it down, and save each page (you’ll be glad you did on those downer days).
Once you make a habit of thinking positively, it will become automatic, and you will no longer let negativity linger.
