We’ve all come in contact with people who constantly complain about something.
They constantly look for the negative in every situation and of course voice it out loud, whether to a person or on social media.
It seems their newsfeed is just one terrible thing after another happening in their life or just life in general.
You know why that is?
It’s not bad luck.
It’s what they’re attracting to themselves that’s causing it.
It’s because they keep thinking and SAYING the negative things that come to their mind.
Life is what they’re projecting it to be.
If you think that you’re broke, sick, tired and stupid – you will be!
You are what you think you are and you are what you say you are.
No one thinks your humble staying broke.
You’re not showing humility by being poor.
It’s not “good stewardship” to be a cheap ass.
Straight up. Truth Bomb.
Good people, good jobs, good opportunities are attracted to people who are joyful and hopeful.
If you’re gripped on to every single penny you have like it could be your last, there’s not much joy and hope in that.
Do you know what real prosperity is?
It’s not just being rich or having large monetary value.
There are plenty of rich people who are spiritually poor in life.
They work a million hours around the clock and they might have a lot in the bank, but they aren’t prosperous.
That’s trading time for money and health.
True prosperity is a condition. It’s a state of being and well-being.
It starts with your thinking.
You’ll never be prosperous if you got a lot of stinking thinking going on.
If you’re walking around announcing gloom and doom all the time, you’re attracting more of it.
So How Can You Attract Success and Happiness?
First things first, you need to be aware of what it is that you’re allowing to take up space in your thought life.
“You can’t keep a bird from flying over your head, but you can keep it from landing there and building a nest.” – Kennith E. Hagin
Your mind is SO important to your business yet so many just overlook it and put themselves to work every day without ever giving any attention or care to their thoughts and words.
If you want to have a better life, you need to take captive your thoughts and words.
I’m not saying that there will not be times in life when you feel like speaking forth negative thoughts and emotions, but these are the times you have to exercise faith and self control.
Don’t allow your thoughts to rule you and don’t be hung by your own tongue!
Take your focus off the negative situation.
There are lots of ways you can take your focus off negativity….
- Meditate quietly
- Read something upbeat, positive and soul lifting.
- Watch something motivational
- Singing – sing to your favorite music.
- Make a list of what you’re thankful for
- Take a walk, swim, nap
There are also a lot of ways you can fuel the fire of your negative emotions and thoughts…
- Thinking more
- Speaking out negativity
- Criticizing yourself and others
- Work harder
- Try solving the problems with logic
DO NOT GIVE ATTENTION TO NEGATIVE THOUGHTS!
Don’t entertain them, don’t think about them, don’t try to solve every problem that pops in there.
If you will take your focus off the negative and start redirecting your thoughts towards things more positive, you’ll start to see a difference in the reality you’re manifesting around you.
When you start speaking positive affirmations about your health, finances and the things around you – the things around begin to respond to it.
You attract that which you think and speak.
You’re putting vibes out there and their returning back to you what you put out.
Silence the negative thoughts.
Start focusing on what you do want to see happen and start speaking it!
Don’t allow anything contrary to what you’re believing for make a nest in your head.
Don’t allow anything contrary to what you’re believing for come out of your mouth.
The negative words are the fruit of the negative root in your thoughts.
If you’ll start taking the time to take captive your thoughts by reading, meditating and speaking words of affirmation over yourself and business, you’ll start seeing your life head in a more positive and prosperous direction.
You’re going to have thoughts anyway…
You’re going to say words anyway….
Stop. Think. Redirect.
I’m not telling you not acknowledge the facts, but you can counter them with “Hey I’ve got this issue in front of me, but I know these things always work out in the end, so I’m not going to spend my energy worrying about it”
You’ll find that you’ll be in the right place at the right time and encountering the right people when you start projecting more positive vibes.
Things will work out.
You’ll start attracting all the abundance and happiness you could ever ask for when you take captive your thoughts and words that you’re speaking!
ACTION STEP: write this down on a 3 x 5 note card. “I refuse to speak forth anything contrary to what I’m believing for”
