Check On It

“I can’t stand you!” “I think I feel sick.” Or my favorite, “This is how I’ve been my entire life, I can’t change now.” All negative comments that unlock a flow of negative thoughts followed by a stream of negative actions. People must realize that words have the power to create life and destroy it at the same time. We get so programmed of saying destructive phrases all the time to the point we don’t even know we’re saying them. This is a very dangerous place to be…it means our default thinking is programmed as negative.
It all begins with a simple thought. We have to begin to catch the thought and tell it to reverse before it reaches our tongue. Even if you do feel nervous, scared, or sick, once you say it, you surrender yourself to that negative thought . You just allowed whatever insecurity you were feeling freedom to be an active part of your life.
It’s time to start speaking life and joy back in our lives. Repeat your goals with confidence and courage every morning when you wake up. Begin to pause before you give a 45 minute response of how bad everything is in your life and only two minutes how everything is good. Find and focus on the positive in each situation. Trust me, there is always a positive. Take control of your thoughts and begin speaking positive words in your life. We only have one life to live, choose your words wisely.
“Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become character. Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”
