Don't major on your minuses

Repeat phrases often enough and they will become true; don’t major on your minuses.

This is “automatic” negative self-talk.

“Yeah, but I….”

“If only I.…”

“I am such a (negative)….”

“I’ll never….”

Having pejorative thoughts about ourselves produces limiting beliefs that create blind spots.

Sometimes we drowned in negative thoughts that affect us externally without even noticing.

When we internalize negative comments from others, it is like the story of the frog in a boiling pot, the more negative things we tolerate, the more they become the things we begin to believe.

“It’s not what happens, it’s what you do about it.” —Jim Rohn

You must remember that the hard days are what make you stronger.

Without the bad days, you don’t realize what a good day is.

If you never had any struggles, you would never have felt a sense of accomplishment!

Identify 100 good things about you and write them down.

When you fill your self-talk up with so many positives, you start to employ them in your life.

Now create a mantra that is inspiring.

A mantra is a positive statement that can help you to challenge and overcome the minuses.

It is a breath prayer that is repeated over and over when you find yourself entertaining your minuses.

When you repeat these good things and believe them, you can start making major changes.

“I am beautiful, loving, caring, and intellectual.”

“I am courageous, committed, generous, and passionate.”

"Life doesn't get easier or more forgiving, I get stronger and more resilient."

“When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the plane takes off against the wind, not with it.” —Henry Ford

Consider just how extraordinary you are.

Keep looking for the blind spots and building a better you.
