Our attention tells the brain what to repeat. Thus, to encourage excellence we must “spotlight the right.”
What we think, our self-talk, determines how we behave. Negative people, those who are always focused on other’s faults and blame everyone else for their troubles, unknowingly sentence themselves to negative lives. Negativity is a cycle. More importantly, negative people spread their negativity to others.
Positive people, those who “spotlight the right” and share gratitude for others, are tipping the scale for success in their favor. Brain research confirms, the chemical composition of our brains change when we are positive. We are healthier, happier, and more successful when we discipline our thoughts to focus on the positive aspects of our lives.
The science is clear. There is no reason to be undisciplined and permit ourselves to dwell in negative, critical behaviors. Be intentional. Remove yourself from negative environments and be discipline in your self-talk.
