Have you ever noticed how one negative event can spiral downward and multiply into a bunch of consecutive negative events? Bite your tongue while eating breakfast, then you break a string on your shoe, spill coffee on your white shirt, get stuck in traffic, show up late for work and get fired….
…well, it doesn’t have to be that extreme, but you get my point : )
Now some people have asked me over the years, “Hey Mike, how do you stay so positive all the time?” Well, this is definitely one of my secrets!
If you aren’t already aware…did you know that you can change that “bad” day into a “good” day, in a matter of seconds??!!
If you simply change how you react to that negative situation from; getting mad, upset, yelling, throwing something or letting negative self talk consume your thoughts all day long… to saying to yourself…it’s really not that big of a deal, I can get over this…this feeling will pass and I can still have an amazing day! When your day seems to turn down hill, it’s absolutely all in your head, and you can change it right now!….I know it can seem unbelievable but it’s true.
Once you’ve tried out this technique a few times, you’ll start to notice that because of your newly decided upon positive reactions, things seem to go right back the way you want them too, it becomes very empowering! Once you learn how to control your reactions and remain positive, you will then continue to attract more positive situations and things, and more things and situations to be positive about, into your life.
The point I’m trying to make, is that negative reactions cause negative energy, and we all know that when we’re in that negative mood…nothing goes right. So why remain in that head space any longer? It literally is a waste of energy…and in fact, you’re not just wasting it, but that bad energy is affecting your body. I believe that the negative energy causes “dis-ease” within your body, and creates negative health conditions like colds, body aches, head aches or worse. Also, I do understand that It may seem hard or even impossible to see the positive in some situations, but believe me, It’s a LOT healthier trying to find one, than simply focusing on the negative.
I want you to try something for me this week!…Try to react positively to every negative situation you may enter for 7 full days, and let me know how it goes. I promise you that this one simple change you can make with hardly any effort, can improve your life exponentially!
Thanks for letting me share this with you! I wish you all positivity and success in your lives!
