TOLERANCE TO NEGATIVE THINKING
HOW TO CREATE A PERSISTENTLY
It's not that hard to create a positive focus. What is
hard is to do it consistently and persistently.
Fortunately, there are lots of different ways to shift your
focus in a positive direction. Here is a list of ten
things you can do to create and maintain a positive focus.
1. Use the power of repetition to
create an army of automatic positive thoughts. Those
thoughts will rush to your rescue whenever the battle of focus
starts to rage. Repeat the following thoughts until your
mind starts repeating them back to you.
"I become what I think about all day
"What I think about changes who I am."
"When I think about positive things, I
become a positive person."
"Improvement is only a thought away."
The instant I think positive thoughts is
the exact moment my life improves.
2. Use the power of memorization to
fill your memory banks with positive things. Memorize the
following positive affirmation.
"God loves and accepts me the way I am,
but He loves me too much to let me stay that way. God
loves me from the top of my head to the tip of my toes, and it
doesn't get any better than that. There is no limit to how
good my life can become when I open my heart and mind to the
power of God's love. For as long as I live, I will max out
on God's love."
3. Use the power of positive
neuroassociations to instantly create a positive state of mind.
Link a simple gesture of your arms to a positive thought, and
whenever you put your arms in that position, the positive
thought will automatically pop into your mind.
Create a positive neuroassociation by
simply folding your arms across your chest while you repeat the
following affirmation, "There is no limit to how good my life
Repeat this process at least twenty times
or until the physical gesture is securely linked to the positive
thought. If you create and maintain this neuroassociation,
you will be able to instantly create a positive state of mind
whenever you want. Neuroassociations are easy to create,
and they work. There's no easier way to instantly push
your mind in a positive direction.
4. Use the power of positive writing
to force your focus in a positive direction. Copy positive
passages from your favorite books. Every positive
paragraph you write pushes your mind in a positive direction.
If you write a positive book, you will spend thousands of hours
thinking and writing about positive things.
5. Use the power of positive music
to focus on positive things. Music is a massive
neuroassociation that links sounds to mental states. Take
your favorite music and link it with positive experiences you
have had in the past. Then, whenever you replay the music,
you will relive the positive experience by seeing it on the
motion picture screen of your mind.
6. Use the power of positive
self-talk to push your inner voice in a positive direction.
You have a lot of things to discuss with your mind, and what you
say needs to be positive. My book, Maximum Strength
Positive Thinking, is full of positive self-talk and is
a great resource you can use to fill your mind with positive
things. Repeat the following positive self-talk.
"If I want to change who I am, I must
change the collection of thoughts that defines what it means to
"When I struggle with negative and
limiting thoughts, I need to remember that a positive focus
always transforms my life in a positive direction. There
is no reason to surrender to fear or despair. What I think
about will expand at every age and stage of life. Even if
I am one-hundred years old, the power of positive focus
will still bring good things into my life."
7. Repeat positive affirmations to
silence the inner skeptic and change the way you think and feel.
Repeat the following affirmations.
"No event is so negative that I can't make
something good come out of it."
"Affirmations do more than change the way
I think. They also change the way I feel."
"Each day I jump into God's ocean of love
and have a life changing experience. There is no limit to
how good my life can become when I open my heart and mind to the
power of God's love."
8. Count your blessings so they can
expand into your mind. Each day take out your paper and
pencil and list twenty blessings on a sheet of paper. You
must count your blessings or you will forget they are there.
9. Turn on the positive mind pump
and listen to positive recordings that inspire you to live your
dreams. Spend a few hours listening to speeches by Zig
Ziglar, and it won't be long before you are flying like an
eagle. Go to Positive Thinking Radio.com and listen for
free to positive recordings that can change your life.
10. Focus your mind on the most
powerful and most positive force in the universe, God's love.
This is only a short list of things you
can do to create and maintain a positive focus. You
already have all the tools you need to have a positive mind.
You simply must go on the offensive and use a persistently
positive focus to push your mind in a positive direction.
