Sunday Redirect

Sunday Redirect

Nothing kills progress faster than worry and negativity. Right? We’ve all been there. But what can we do about it? Our minds seem to act like runaway horses carrying us  unwilling down the path of negative thoughts. Scary.

Here are three basic ways to fight this problem:
1.     Recognize negative thoughts when they occur
2.     Live in the moment
3.     Practice constructive thinking.

Recognizing negative thoughts is pretty easy, but getting rid of them is the key. Living in the moment is the secret. Most negativity involves two things – worrying about the past or the future, (or both). Really scary! The more you focus on the here and now, the easier it is to let go of those thoughts that rob you of your joy.

Once you recognize your negative thoughts and practice (there’s that word again!) living in the present, you can add constructive thinking. This is what puts your problems in perspective – will it matter in five years? Ten? Is there some action you can do right now to solve the problem? If not, throw the thoughts away and focus on something else. And, if all else fails, watch some funny cat videos.

Reversing negativity isn’t easy. It’s a lifetime quest. Hmmmm. Kind of like dance training!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Motivational Secret #133:
“Redirect negative thoughts.”
