You will probably think that how can negative thought effects your life? Well, you will be surprised to know your thoughts have astounding power over you and it has even the power to create or spoliate happiness in your life. You should regain control of them and make your brain to think different, as now, you know that how powerful your thoughts can be. I am telling you 15 common negative thoughts and how they hold you back from health and happiness.
1- I CAN NEVER LOSE MY WEIGHT :- This is one of the common negative thought for overweight people and they often thinks that it is impossible to lose weight. If you will continue to think this, then you will soon lose your motivation to lose weight anymore and this will lead to depression and unhappiness. So create a new positive thought, that you WILL have a figure or body that you desire, and it is quite easy for you.
2- I WILL NEVER FORGIVE HIM/HER :- It really hurts when someone close betray us and the wound is so deep that you constantly think about how they could do this to you or how you will never forgive them, no matter what. Anger and pain continue to profound with every thought which can lead to sadness or depression. All you have to do is, get ready for releasing all the pain and think that you are willing to forgive him/her, this will make you feel free.
3- I WILL NEVER MAKE ENOUGH MONEY :- A lack of money can make us feel insecure anxious, afraid. We become outrageous and panicky, when we are in debt. Due to this, we can make wrong decisions as we are thinking from a “lack” perspective. And this leads them to make impaired judgments, inertia and low confidence, which are the key points to be done in order to make money. So, start thinking that you are worthy and capable of make more money in order to live a great life.
4- I WILL NEVER FIND LOVE :- When you don’t have your “other half” then it looks like the whole world is in love except you. You will feel lonely and start thinking that there is no one for you. Then, your feelings will reflect in your behavior too. In order to prevent this, you should think that there is “someone” for you too and he will come at the right time, and you are worthy of getting love.
5- I CAN NEVER BE HAPPY :- Sometimes, things are not going the way we want it, thus, we feel sad. You should not ponder why you feel this way, as this will lead to more unhappy thoughts.
6- HE/SHE DOESN’T LOVE ME :- When your partner let you down in some way or have a disagreement with him/her then it is common to feel unappreciated or unlovable. This promotes neediness and emotional security which can ruin your relationship.
7- I CAN’T DO THIS, I AM AFRAID :- Life presents us good opportunities as well as difficult tasks. Even when we want to have something, the inner fears will tell you – No, you are not strong or incapable to do what must be done. This negative though is very untrue and it is the negative though which keeps us from our goal.
8- I AM HELPLESS, I HAVE NO CONTROL :- There comes the time when you are so helpless that you think you have no control over your life. Constantly thinking about helplessness can lead you to anxiety, low self esteem and depression. So, you should now think that you have a full control over your destiny and life.
9- I AM PROBABLY GOING TO GET SICK :- So, if you tell yourself that you are going to get sick then there are chances that you WILL get sick. So, stop worrying about the fears of death or illnesses and start thinking about healthy life.
