Dealing With Your Negative Mind

“Tell your negative mind to stop.”

I woke up this morning and those were the first words on my mind. It’s 5:30 in the morning and I have to be at work by 7. My alarm clock went off, I hit the snooze button and tried to go back to sleep.

“Tell your negative mind to stop!”

Unfortunately, that became my mantra as I tried to snooze a little bit longer.

After I hit the snooze button for the third time another voice screamed, “Somebody may need to hear what your mind is saying! Get up NOW!”

I’m up now, thank you brain.

So reader, I got a few minutes to tell you this. When your inner pessimist is discouraging you and poisoning your mind, tell your mind to “stop.” It’s just that simple.

Go ahead. Mentally or under your breath scream “STOP!” If your negative mind is on a roll and won’t quit, drown it out by thinking or saying out loud, “Stop It Stop It Stop It Stop It! It actually works!

You can also negate your negative thoughts by reasoning with it. Here is an example:

Negative me – “Look at them over there talking about me.” Positive me – “Or maybe they are just talking in general so stop!”

It’s that simple. When I put my negative mind in it’s place ( several times a day) I feel a weight lifting off my mind. Go ahead, start practicing it and see how your world begins to change.

So what negative thoughts always cross your mind and how did you humble them?
