Watch your thoughts!

“Overthinking leads to negative thoughts”  unknown

Warning!!

“You think about 60,000 thoughts a day. It’s up to you to make sure that you don’t use up 59,999 of them with negative and cynical thinking”  unknown

And it’s impossible to tame the mind of your negative thoughts.

Is it possible to find a person who never gets a negative thought!

The point I am stressing is, whatever may be the circumstances the human mind is programmed to look for negative thoughts first and foremost.

Humans proudly assert that they are always cautious, forgetting that these negative thoughts are responsible for their misery!

And it is impossible to detach yourself from negative thoughts.

And whatever advice you may come across on the internet about avoiding negative thoughts… may not help altogether.

“For many negative thinking is a habit, which over time becomes an addiction”  Peter McWilliams

Are you controlling your negative thoughts or are your negative thoughts controlling you?

Not a difficult question to answer my friend.

You are being controlled by your negative thoughts! Accept it.

Any formula to overcome this?

Yes. There is one

“The goal is not to get rid of all your negative thoughts, feelings and life situations. That is impossible.

The goal is to change your response to them.

To go so strong on the inside, that nothing on the outside can affect your inner wellness without your conscience permission”   Unknown

Please share your views and how to counter negative thoughts with positive ones?

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

  1. Very true..
    For me it’s simply my pen and paper. As soon as I start spilling out my negative and depressing thoughts on them, they revert me back solutions, as to, how to overcome them, what are the positive points I’m missing out, how to count on them rather than allowing myself to drown under unwanted worries, extra stress and the ongoing process of over thinking. My cents..!! Thanks.. 🙏🏻😇

    1. Wow

      You are so lucky my friend.

      I wish I too have the habit of pulling the paper and pen!

      Well said regarding thinking of positive points to counter the negative thoughts, instead of getting drowned in the negative thoughts with fear, tension and anxiety.

      Thank you

  2. This is so true………some folks just relish in negativity! I don’t practice negativity (just the opposite, I’m mostly cheerful) Most things are not about the problem ……..it is how you respond to it…..
