We Don’t Have The Luxury Of Negative Thoughts
Hello Heartrepreneurs. It’s good to be with you. I am excited about what I want to share today. I often find myself saying to my clients that you can’t afford the luxury of a negative thought. Not even one for a second. I share with them the thoughts are the most powerful things. Just breathe it in with me. Whatever thought you take a moment and think or a second and think, significantly impacts not only emotions but your mind as well. Your physical body. What happens when a thought is put out there? Your body responds to the thought. Let’s play with this. I want you to think of a lemon. Did you have a reaction? How about fingernails on a chalkboard? How about an emery board in your mouth going back and forth side to side through your teeth. I think I have proved my point. Thoughts cause your body to response. They influence your emotions as well. Think of something you absolutely love and adore. I am guessing it creates a feeling or emotional response. Now think of something you hate. Another emotion comes up. So let me give you good news. You don’t have to change your emotions because your emotions actually follow thought. They go along for the ride. All you want to focus on are having the right kinds of thoughts. When you have them over and over again, you will have the right kind of business and life.
Positive Thoughts Creative Positive Results
It can be said that your positive thoughts create positive results and vice versa.
One of the things I recommend is that you imagine your favorite place. Maybe it’s in nature or by the beach or skiing or sitting in a park or walking along the river. Just imagine that for a moment and get into the feelings of it. Once you feel that, that is going to be your go to place. Any time you are having a thought that isn’t a thought that is going to move you or your business forward, then all you do is shift your thinking instantly to that favorite place. You will notice that your emotions will follow through. Let’s go deeper. You may be wondering why I am talking about this. I teach this all of the time. Everything that we do comes from working on the inside first. The outer actions of your business success come from your inner game or alignment. Anyone who is just teaching you actions is not helping your business move forward.
The human mind is designed to look for danger. Fight or Flight. As humans, we look for what’s wrong. Let’s face it, something is always wrong. Our minds, if we are not careful, they do what they do. They focus on negative. We don’t want to activate that. If you start focusing on the negative the mind will attract more negative. So, we don’t want to mobilize this fight or flight unless we are in physical danger. We don’t want this to happen all of the time. Cave people had to have this, we don’t anymore. In fact, when we trigger this response, it stops our body from being the best it can be. We start putting out chemicals that are toxic to our body. I don’t want to add anxiety or nervousness or tears to my life. So, I want you to notice whenever you are in a place where you are feeling fear or upset or anger, notice it and remember its coming from your lack of paying attention to your conscious thoughts. Any of these feelings like rage, guilt, depression, resentment, shyness, withdrawing, grieving, any of these and they are usually not very rational. Many times people get so caught up in these negative feelings of fear and they become habits of how they think. They literally become an addiction. Any habit can be an addiction. An addiction creates disease. Maybe you have an addiction. Either emotionally or physically or with your mind and you don’t even know what that is. But it affects your thinking. One of the addictions that I have had for many years that I work on each day and every day is my mind being addicted right. To proving that I am smart or I know something. That we are right mentality and having my body go I am right and I am going to fight for this, sure it creates a rush of adrenaline however its tied me up in negative thinking and my emotions get tied up.
Negative Thoughts Are Addictive
If you are going to move your business forward then you want to establish habits of thinking that move you forward. Most people are living not being conscious of their thoughts. Those negative thoughts are addictive. They can be called an addictive disease. Let’s really process this. Every single thing, everything begins with a thought. You may know I was a speech pathologist in my early career. I studied communications and neurology and one of the things I learned is nothing in the world happens, including language, without thought. A chair, your computer, the device you are listening to this show on, everything started as a thought that someone had. Then these thoughts generate ideas and in our society, ideas turn into reality. Edison came up with this idea of light bulb electricity. Ford came up with automobile information, etc. In your business, you are having thoughts all of the time. Some of your thoughts aren’t becoming real in terms of ideas, and some of them might be holding you back.
I want today for you to start having one dominant thought. That is a thought you can have over and over and over again until it brings you to the success you desire and deserve. So let’s just say that you decide to think of a thought of becoming a bestselling author. I want to be a bestselling author. You focus on that over and over and over again. A million times a day. And you start being more of that. Feeling it. Acting as if. Believing it. Be living it. So, don’t just believe it but truly start living as if. Accepting that it’s coming. Feel it abundantly flowing towards you. I am not talking about the secret or the law of attraction. I am talking about the action part of attraction. Yes, we can attract more of what we think about as long as we are doing as well. If I am focusing on bestselling author over and over physical manifestation start. I pick up my pen and write or I start keyboarding. Start thinking about what you do want. Your one focus. Start thinking about it all the time. When you start to have those worries or fears, just notice that worry and self-doubt all of those things I mentioned, they come from one thing: fear. When I learned from Zig Ziglar back decades ago, I learned that fear is false evidence appearing real. FEAR. All of those thoughts are just a series of thoughts. If you allow yourself to continue to think those thoughts, you will become that. If you are concerned about how little money you are making and are concerned about it you will create more of that situation. Your thoughts create your reality. Your reality is created by your thoughts. Right here and now at Heartrepreneur radio decide where you will put your focus. Not only do I want you to have that one dominant thought, I want you to go to that positive place in nature that we started with today. I want you to notice the actions that will bring you in the direction you want to go.
Let’s say I desire to be a bestselling author and I am thinking and vibrating and feeling it all of the time. Then I say, what actions can I take that are consistent with this? Here is why the secret wasn’t quite right in my experience. It brought about the law of attraction and an understanding of humans. I can’t just say today I want to be in Mexico. I can’t just say it. It doesn’t happen that way. Try it. Put yourself anywhere you want to go. Think it and feel it. You won’t get there with only holding that intention. You also have to look at activities that can move me towards it. I have this intention that was subconscious and now I have made it conscious. I am feeling and thinking it. Once you bring those intentions to your consciousness, the coolest thing that happens is all you have to do is ask yourself one question: What can I do to get there? I have to do something. What do I need to do? Now I am taking small action every single day. I always recommend small action. Baby steps. A little today, then tomorrow, then the next day. All of a sudden you will say wow, how did I get across this bridge? You will notice that you ended up in the place you wanted to be.
I want you every single day to notice whenever you have negative thinking. When it creeps in and says those things, don’t worry about the how to. It’s just the fight or flight showing up. Instead of living in this miserable way, live in this great way and quiet that voice and bring up that special place in nature. Feeling it and staying there. Be there. Staying there. I want you to remember that fear is false evidence. It’s an illusion. What we do as humans, we treat illusions like they are real. But they are just feelings. Decide to let it go. All you need to do to overcome fear is: You can realize you have fear. Big deal. Big deal. I am going to take action anyway and here is the coolest thing to share today. When you physically take an action and you move in a direction of what you do want, like bestselling author, the fear starts to go away. Absolutely. Fear moves when you take action and you’re gaining strength and confidence. It’s what happens. So, I am going to share a quote. It’s from Eleanor Roosevelt. You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, I lived through this horror. I can now take the next thing that comes along. You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Catch that. You must do the thing you think you cannot do. So that is my challenge to you. That is 100% my challenge to you. I want you to move through fear. And I want you to start acting by taking action. Accentuate the positive. That is the cure for what your fears are and what is stopping you. Start focusing on the positive and focusing on that one goal. Whatever you look for, appears. If you want to focus on the beauty of the roses, and how they are growing in the garden, you will find that. So, how you feel from the inside determines your business from the outside. How you feel depends on what you choose to put your attention on. Look around you. What is beautiful and positive? What is that image in nature that you are going to visit any time you need or want to? Don’t forget its ok to notice the negative. I am not teaching you positive thinking. Taking yourself to that positive image in nature, that is actually moving you in a more joyful direction. Remember this: The present is perfect. It’s your gift. The present is the future. The present is the future that you dreamed of a long time ago. Enjoy the future and take your actions and I will see you next time right here at Heartrepreneur radio.
