Two Top Tips to Quickly Overcome Negative Thinking
Even though I’m a life coach and motivational speaker, I still find it’s natural to fall prey to negative thinking. Having negative thoughts rush through your mind like a horror movie can only bring you pain, stress, and ill health. It’s something that I’ve experienced many times throughout my life. Thank God I’ve learned how to get out of that rut as quickly as possible.
Negative thoughts drain you of precious energy and keep you from enjoying the present moment. The more you focus on your negative thoughts, the stronger they become. It’s like the image of a flooding river; the more it rains the body of water gets bigger, and greater is its power to rush faster and overflow. Before you know it, an entire village is washed away. This could be our future, our hopes and dreams.
That’s what one small negative thought can turn into: a huge, flooding river of destruction. On the contrary, a small positive thought can have the same effect allowing your life to flow in a more beneficial way. One day you may want to float peacefully along and enjoy the sights, and another you may want to step it up a notch and take a white river rafting ride. And all the while you are remaining upbeat, confident, and in control of shaping the positive focus that leads your pathway. Is this possible? Absolutely!!!
The funny thing about our mind is that the strongest feeling creates our beliefs and shape generalized statements that guide our emotions throughout the day (I’m struggling with this job therefore…I’m not good enough, I can’t do it, I’ll never be competent, I’m (tired, lazy, anxious, overwhelmed, worried, fearful) ALL the time). We create this inner language automatically and often without even recognizing the flood we’re causing in our mind.
Two Top Tips for Quickly Shaping a Positive Mindset
1. One tip I highly recommend to my coaching clients is to journal at night, or make a mental note to reflect on what went well that day. Then when you go to sleep you will have your thoughts follow the tone of the feelings those thoughts produced.
The other day I had a client who was struggling with negative thinking. It appeared that she didn’t feel adequate. She felt that no matter what she did, a constant state of anxiety was present. Before coming to my office I asked her to simply jot down what she was grateful for. Whatever came to mind write it in a spiral notebook. She brought her journal to the 1st session. During the session it was brought forth that she didn’t feel loved or was not sure she could even recognize what love was or if she loved anything. After our session she recognized that she loved many things. I had her write the words “I LOVE” at the top of the page in her journal. She immediately changed her statements of gratitude to start with I love.
Instead of stating, “I am grateful for the sun today and sitting outside for lunch,” she wrote “I LOVE the sun shining on my face while sitting outside for lunch.”
After that one “shift”, she said it changed the entire energy level in her body. She instantly felt happy, upbeat, and lighter.
2. Another tip that works to shape your thoughts and feelings on demand is using audios. When you wake up and feel uncomfortable, nervous about what’s ahead or unhappy about something that happened the day before, it sets the tone of the day. It is most useful to “shift” that negative energy to a more uplifting focus. To do that you simply have tools in your tool chest. Audios work great!
A very effective tool is listening to Mindscapes Unlimited’s Mind Power audios created by Strategic Mind Coach, Lori Bestler. “These highly effective audios help you to effortlessly and quickly get into an optimal brainwave state to change thoughts that hinder your health, happiness and success. My clients rave about them. They’re a great tool I add to my coaching package that almost magically enhances my client’s results,” said Lori.
Now if you like FREE stuff, then join my email list. You will be sent a link to download a couple great audios that are samples of my work and even though their not as extensive and multilayered as our Mindscapes line of audios, they still will help you relax and attract the abundance you desire in your life. Just type your email address in the Join Email List box in the upper right hand corner of this page. Look for the email and directions in your inbox. Check your junkmail if you don’t see the first email in five minutes to download the first audio. The second one will follow in a couple days…after you’ve enjoyed the first one (shorter-only 10 minutes) for awhile. Next one is a full 30 minuts. ENJOY!
MindScapes audios change your brainwaves through a neurological process known as brainwave entrainment, guiding you to easily enter into the same brainwave patterns of peak performers throughout history, and fully utilize your subconscious resources to realize your goals and dreams. Simply listen to a relaxing “self-hypnosis” audio a few times a week and you’ll find that you will attract desired results faster.
Why do customers say the benefits of our self-help audios surpass anything they’ve experienced before?
We offer FOUR amazing layers;
– Brainwave entrainment (sound vibrations tailored to the ideal outcome)
– Nature sound clips to enhance peaceful feelings
– Soothing music that is calming to enable immediate relaxation
– Powerful hypnotic suggestions that will quickly shift you from feeling down and out of control, to being self-empowered and confident.
And TWO significant techniques:
– Secret Echo System to enhance experience, especially busy minds, that allow the suggestions to repeat and go deeper subconsciously for affecting faster results.
– Skilled voices that speak powerful suggestions in a welcoming tone are spoken into different ears to reach the ideal hemisphere for positive change. Words, music, brainwaves, and nature sounds go into a specific brain hemisphere for optimal effect, utilizing the right and left hemisphere of the brain at the same and at different times, shaping a balanced brain for enhancing focus and positive feelings after your session.
How do I know what audio to listen to?
Use Surge and Soar in the morning to boost those brainwaves and be energized and more motivated.
Another option is to listen to one of the audios in this series that target a specific problem you’re experiencing such as:
– Eliminating worry with At Peace and Confident
– Reduce anxiety and increase confidence with Breathe and Be Empowered
– Overcome procrastinating and putting off that tedious task you really are not feeling confident or excited about doing with In Control and Competent.
After a period of time you will feel more in control, more confident, more able to quickly turn around a down cast attitude and mood. Once you’ve learned to effectively use the tools in your tool chest to master your psychology, you’re ready to really dig into who you are, what you value, and go after what you really want. At this point, the audio Attracting Abundance will be extremely beneficial.
How often do I listen to them?
Once you have listened to an audio for a good 2-4 weeks, 3X’s a week, focusing on gaining the benefits of the audio of choice; you can progress to another one. The key is to listen to the audio for at least 6X’s, before switching to another one. You want to condition your brain to the brainwaves and allow the suggestions to sink into your subconscious mind.
Start with the audio you feel you could benefit from most.
You can listen to Surge and Soar at the same time because it is a motivational audio, and you can listen through speakers or a headset, and you listen to it with your eyes open.
All the other audios are self-hypnosis, and you listen to them with eyes closed while in a relaxing position, with ear buds or a headset.
