“Replace the Negative Thoughts: We don’t overcome negative thought patterns, we replace them. For most of us, those negative thought patterns are well-worn neural pathways.”
Four simple steps:
1. Notice when you have started the pattern.
2. Acknowledge that its a pattern you want to change.
3. Articulate what you want to be different.
4. Choose a different behavior — one that serves your goals.
You view the world through your mental attitude. If that attitude is predominantly negative, it can impact everything, including health, career, family, and more. Furthermore, negative thinking can have a spiraling effect that attracts more negative thinking. Luckily, we can slowly train ourselves over time on how to think by implementing simple techniques.
