Everyday we are exposed the external world and the messages that we receive and interpret. No one is immune as much as we’d like to think. However, there are things that are in our control that we can put into effect in order to counter negative messages that turn into negative thinking.
During my training for Weightlifting competitions I subject my body to heavy weights that can potentially harm me. That’s why I have to practice daily in order to perfect my technique. Not only am I training my body but I’m also training my mind. Before I execute lifts I rehearse them in mind before I touch the bar.
Before you execute on anything in your life, rehearse it in your mind first!!!!
Destroy Negative Thinking Technique
When a negative thought comes into my mind in order to destroy that negative thought I do the following. I say to myself the following:
How many times do I say this? I say this at least 20 times in my mind. It sounds ridiculous but in essence what you are doing is filling your mind with as much positive energy to maximize success. This is how you destroy a negative thought in your mind.
This technique will only work when you practice it daily. Once you practice it daily it becomes habitual and instinctive. You want to get to the point where it becomes habitual so you don’t have to remind yourself to do it.
