We all agree that positive thinking is the way to go, right. But if we could think our way out of our thoughts, we’d have already done it. What’s going on is that we don’t even know we’re thinking those thoughts because we are so busy lamenting like a victim and striking out with misplaced anger all made up in our heads with our Internal Chain of Commands and the stories we tell ourselves.
What’s one sense you can focus on today? Pick one and the acutely perceive your world today through that sense. Note down the feelings, images, daydreams and ideas that come to you. If you feel negativity, that’s great! Ask yourself what triggered it? What’s going on? How can you turn that into a positive empowering thought instead?
