Just because you have a negative thought doesn’t mean you have to believe it. A thought only has power if we give it energy.

Just because you have a negative thought doesn’t mean you have to believe it.  A thought only has power if we give it energy.  – Jon Gordon

 

No one talks to you each and every day more than you.  Your self-talk largely determines your attitude.  You can listen to the negative thoughts – the blame, complain, and defend thoughts that creep into your mind.  You can give energy to the negative . . . you can be your own energy vampire.

 

OR . . . You can hear that negative thought in your self-talk and make a discipline-driven decision.  You can intentionally say “no” in your self-talk.  Don’t give your negative thoughts energy.  It’s natural to have the self-conversation.  It takes discipline to purposefully force the positive to overpower the negative.

 

Optimism is contagious . . . Optimism is a habit that requires repetitions and practice.  Practice optimism . . . Give energy to your optimistic self.
