Is Negativity Holding You Back?

Negativity always finds a way to creep up in your life from time to time. It's when negativity builds up too much or shows up too often that you have an obstacle to overcome.

A negative attitude can hold you back from truly living your life. However, you don't need to feel stuck because you can bring positive thoughts back into your life!
 
How Negativity Can Hold You Back
 
Negativity can hold you back in a number of ways. Have you heard the saying: "If you think you can't, you're right"? It's true! Negative thoughts like this really do sabotage your efforts.
 
The good news is that you can gain control over how you think. When you're expressing complaints and negativity all the time, it not only affects you, but it also affects the people around you. Negativity, itself, can be the reason why you create roadblocks that don't really exist! So it's time to choose the positive (and, yes, it is a choice!).
 
Manifesting A Positive Attitude
 
When you adopt a positive attitude, you open yourself up to the wonderful world of possibilities. When positive energy is in the air, you'll be able to transform your negative feelings and maybe even bring others out of their negativity clouds.
 
Believe it or not, positive thinking is very powerful. It's the driving force that steers your life into the direction of your dreams. Remember, your thoughts affect how you feel, and how you feel affects what you do, so if you can change your thoughts, you can change your outcome.
 
How To Develop A Positive Attitude
 
How can you change your attitude? It's easier than you think.
 
Follow these tips to develop a positive attitude:
 
1.    Visualize. When the negative thoughts come crawling into your mind, transform them with positive images. Visualize something that you find pleasing, peaceful, or exciting. Remember what your ultimate goals are and imagine what it feels like to achieve them.
 
2.    Write it down. Keeping a journal has many positive effects. It helps you vent your frustrations, organize your life, and reflect on your innermost thoughts and feelings. Instead of focusing on the bad, use your journal to chronicle the things that have gone well in your life lately.
 
3.    Relax. Negative feelings are bound to arise when you're in a stressful state. It's important to take time out of each day for yourself. This means that you need to adopt a relaxation method that works for you. Perhaps you can take a bath, go to church, attend a yoga class, or meditate. When you're relaxed, a peaceful and positive mindset will likely overtake you.
 
4.    Read and write affirmations. Grab a book with positive affirmations in it, or better yet, write your own. Affirmations are a powerful way to bring positive thoughts into your present state of well being. Affirmations are short statements in the present tense that remind you of positive attributes and goals in your life. Here's an example: "I am strong and competent."
 
5.    Live for the moment. Live your life for the moment and let go of everything else going on in your life. Negative feelings can easily overwhelm you if you're consumed by past failures or the fear of the future. When you concentrate on the present, your life becomes more peaceful and positive.
 
In the end, go easy on yourself. You don't need to be your own worst critic, instead, try being your biggest advocate! Just concentrate on your well being and you will develop a more positive attitude.

Wealth Insight 2009-12-25 Running On Faith   This newsletter goes out on Christmas day. This is a day when Christians are reminded of their faith. So today I am going to be talking a bit about faith.   But it’s another kind of faith I’m thinking of right now. A kind of faith that has kept the material world as we know it going for nearly 40 years.   A kind of faith that gives me faith in the power of faith itself!   In 1971 Nixon unpegged the dollar from gold.... Read more...

Thank you Hannes for the opportunity to participate in the Kaizen Challenge. One of the biggest realizations for me on the course was just how influential my thoughts are in determining what my course of action in life is. Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-09-18 Getting beyond ‘easy’ Those of us who have made a career of finding out the truth sometimes struggle to get through to people. We have this problem: how do we get across to others the truth we’ve found and turned into systems that anyone can follow? What we’ve learned has taken us far away from what most people are taught to believe. So their first response is disbelief …  “What do you mean, the Formula for Riches® says... Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-08-14 Just because it doesn’t glitter doesn’t mean it isn’t gold! Just the other day I heard of a woman who helped her boss start a new business. She was with him for twenty years, starting from Day 1. She opened up in the morning, she closed up at night. She knew the business better than he did. So he could and did leave most of it in her capable hands while he travelled, enjoyed holidays, etc. There was almost nothing about that business that she did not... Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-09-11 Success story: from PA to webmaster A couple of months ago Netta, my personal assistant, had the same computer skills as most people. She used a computer every day but was not a programmer or IT expert. She did the basic Build A Web course (www.build-a-web.com) because she liked the idea of being able to create her own website in less than an hour. It didn’t cost her anything, and she enjoyed it. A week or so ago she was able to take over as webmaster on my... Read more...
