Be A Red Hot Positive Thinker
By Michael Lee
You only need to know
ONE word to become a red-hot positive thinker and be an optimism
magnet. You must make sure that this word stays in your vocabulary
for a long time. Before I reveal to you that one single word,
let me acquaint you first with the three words that perpetuate
Why do people indulge
on negative thoughts? There is no need for rocket science principles
here. Has it ever occurred to you that it is easier to become
a negative person than a positive one? People indulge in negative
thoughts mainly because IT IS EASY; and there are 3 simple steps
According to T. Harv Eker, "whoever can point to as many
people and circumstances without ever looking at himself is declared
the winner!" When caught in a bind, some people easily point
to someone else. It is the always the other person's fault. They
take the easy way out instead of taking responsibility and finding
solutions to the problem at hand.
They blame their parents
for being the child they became, they blame their spouse for making
them feel unloved, they blame their boss for the project that
bombed, they blame their officemates for spreading gossip about
them. They blame credit card companies for their numerous debts,
they blame the sun for the uncomfortable heat, and they blame
the wind for ruining their hair. What's next to blame?
In this case, some people use their creativity to come up with
innovative reasons and excuses just to get off the hook!
In work situations,
some people would come up with excuses just to avoid doing the
task assigned. Others would claim that the task is difficult or
not within their line of expertise. Some would rationalize that
it is hard to initiate change even before trying it out first!
Their mindset is wired to give up easily. They would rather find
one hundred reasons why it cannot be done, instead of finding
reasons why it is worthy to purpose.
This refers to complainers who are dead set in finding the negative
side of things.
Whiners have difficulty
in finding happiness in life, for they focus on what they do not
have, instead of being thankful for what they have. When people
are complaining, they magnify and focus on what is wrong in their
lives. When they complain about lack of money, that is what precisely
will manifest in their lives.
There you have it,
the 3 simple and easy steps for perpetuating negativity.
For a long time, people
have been indulging on negativity. Many of us, in one way or another
and at any point in our lives, have engaged in negative thoughts.
The uncontrolled mind becomes the perfect breeding ground for
pessimistic thoughts. Everyday, negative programming is being
bombarded into our subconscious.
We already have lots
of practice. To some, negativity is a way of life. Some infants
are born to negative families. They are sensitive enough to absorb
the prevailing atmosphere of the family. They easily imbibe the
mental and emotional characteristics of the mother and the father
since they are their first teachers. They grow up into teenagers
and adults with negative mental attitudes then later on become
Some find comfort
in the company of friends who indulge in negative thinking. "Tell
me who your friends are and I will tell you who you are."
"Birds of the same feather flock together." This accounts
for man's need to belong to a group. Peers have a major influence
on some people's thoughts and decisions.
So now you ask me,
"What is the
ONE word I need to know to become a red-hot positive thinker?"
That one simple word
STOP finding faults.
STOP making excuses. STOP whining.
