Just like an investment goes, you get returned whichever thought you choose to think most about. Positive thoughts help you consciously live a fuller and mindfully happy life. But living in a world full of challenges and obstacles, it is an easier option to give into our negative thoughts and eventually, be a victim of it. To live in your desirable state of happiness, you need to recognize the beginning of negative thoughts and combat them. Here we are with the 3 most common destructive thoughts and how to successfully fight it:
‘No One Cares About Me”

While that often sounds like a cry for help, it often is nothing but a call for mere attention. While you may have incidents to prove your point, you have to understand everyone puts themselves first. As do you, we’re sure. But that doesn’t imply that you don’t care about anyone, right? You can’t hold it against someone if they couldn’t wish you on your birthday or ditch you for another plan of theirs. It simply means that they had something slightly more important to pay attention to at that moment. What you can do is understand their position, call later and ask to meet them again at their convenience. Soon enough, you will see positive responses if you stop believing the worst in such situations.
“I Am A Failure”

You’re not. No one is. You might not be the richest or the best at your job, but that doesn’t mean you’re a failure. Focus yourself on doing things that make you feel most fulfilled. It is your own sense of achievement that counts. We’re all running in different races. Someone wants to be earning a million dollars every year. Another one wants to read and learn something new every day. Someone else wants to just travel the world. You set your own goals and decide your own purpose in life. Work in that direction. You decide what makes you happy and continue doing that. Don’t compare your journey to someone else’s – that is the trick. Their story and their struggle is unique and so is yours.

Truth be told, all of us have felt this emotion at some point or another. Honestly, the fact is that sometimes we just have too much on our plate and that confuses us. In such times, don’t hasten and take rash decisions. Instead of flipping, take a minute to calm yourself down. Take a good look at what’s happening; prioritize what needs to be dealt with first and start with that. Take one step at a time and don’t overwork yourself. Soon enough, you will learn to be constantly stable and be content at the end of the day, every day.
The power of positive affirmations and optimism is notorious. With positive energy, we can engage with the world everyday with a renewed spirit. Be open to what everyone has to offer to you and you’ll go places you hadn’t even thought of.
