How to get over negative thoughts?

Author: Galina Lambert

You set up your goals already and you started practicing the basic steps to achieve it but there are some negative thoughts that bring you down time to time and you start doubting if you’ll ever succeed to get the end result you are going for…

Well, know that if you let them come over you, your result is completely sabotaged and it will be delayed until you succeed staying completely positive.

Here are the possibilities …

  1. You can replace it with the opposite one – for example « I’m not qualified to do this » becomes « I’m qualified enough to start and learn »
  2. Exaggerate it to the impossible stage – « I will never get this job » becomes « I’ll never get this job, will loose all my friends and family and will end up naked living in the street and eating food form the mall’s garbage »
  3. You can also watch the negative thought and try analyzing it to find out what fear is hidden behind it – for example fear of meeting new people, fear of rejection, of failure, of death even…
  4. You can do Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) as well to fight the fear or the negative state of your mind – this is a very effective way as it sets you free from your fears and bad habits quite rapidly.

To avoid the negativism coming in your mind, I would like to recommend you doing some daily work about it, such as :

> reading positive books,

> reading success stories,

> watching comedies,

> listening a funny radio or some nice energetic music,

> doing meditation and visualization,

> praying,

> doing some physical activity,

> change all your negative expressions into positive ones…..

Negative thinking seems to be more prevalent than positive thinking and staying positive requires some efforts with the most part of the people.

This is often due to the environment one has been living in and the personal life experience.

BUT know that it is never too late to change it. The change starts right now….

  1. YES!

    This is just the kind of article I required to read. I was having some troubles here and there, and just now have successfully won one more battle against negative thinking, now to read this!

    Most thankful, Ms Galina!

  2. I was thinking bad about my particular top desire, and then I remembered the secret part that said “Instead of focusing on what he DID NOT want, what he FEARED, what he wanted to AVOID…..he focused in what he DID want.” And so I did.

    “I love you, _____!
    And I love you, my _____! ”

    I repeated this to myself over and over again, as if it were a real exchange from me to her and viceversa. And it worked.

  3. I enjoyed your post Galina and it is definitely something that I do struggle with sometimes.

    I have heard much about EFT and am starting to learn about it. The biggest problem for me is the ‘fear’ and this is something that I am hoping to eradicate (or at least lessen).

  4. Fear – whether it’s of pain, failure, or rejection – is a toxic emotion that creates monsters in our mind that consume self-confidence and intimidate us from doing our best or sometimes even trying at all. Fight! You’re the winner!

    Perspective is an antidote to fear. Most things you fear will never happen, and even if they do, you can handle it.

  5. I have constant negative thought image, which are dirty bad and i associate it with everything i do . I have obsessive compulsive disorder. Plse help.

  6. Devi, I highly recommed you meeting a pshychotherapist using body-oriented psychotherapy. This will help you!

  7. Remember that actions speak louder than words. Rather than just talking, be willing to take some action.
