I had a huge insight this week. That I was a negative person. I learned that 85% of people are negative people.
So what is the definition of if you are a negative or positive person?
If your boss or someone you care about emails you and it says:
I need to talk to Immediately! Get into my office.
What do you think?
What does the voice in your head say?
If it thinks something negative first, you are a negative person.
Ex. What is wrong, what did I do, why am I in trouble, what bad happened?
If it thinks something positive first, you are a positive person.
Ex. Wow, am I getting the raise, what exciting news do they have to share with me, what fun idea did they now have?
Now, what I have always done, is change that negative first thought, into a positive thought. Positive possible meanings that could mean. But my first response was not a positive interpretation.
Now, this is an example, but the majority of the time, what does that little voice in your head say first?
I have learned to ignore that little voice in my head most of the time. Most of the time it isn’t helpful and doesn’t empower me and isn’t what I really want.
Do you listen to that little voice in your head?
How can you start changing it?
Start looking at what you have accomplished.
Every day, or at least every week, write down the good things you have accomplished.
