ZERO TOLERANCE TO NEGATIVE THINKING
MOTIVATIONAL VALUE OF NEGATIVE THOUGHTS
thoughts have a powerful motivational impact. When you suffer
from a plague of negative thoughts, you become motivated to do
whatever is necessary to eliminate them.
thoughts are immensely destructive, and their power and
resilience are astounding. Their influence on your life is far
out of proportion to their size. A tiny negative thought can
multiply like a computer virus and shut down all the positive
thoughts in your mind.
thoughts evaporate from your mind; they seem to be written in
invisible ink. Holding on to them is like trying to hold on to
three wet bars of soap while you are standing blindfolded in a
hot shower. Positive thoughts are frequently blown away by the
most gentle breeze passing through your mind.
thoughts are as strong as steel and as hard as diamonds. They
are perfect boomerangs; they always come back, and they never
break. You never need to worry about running out of negative
thoughts, because there is an inexhaustible supply.
The fact that
negative thoughts ruin your life should motivate you to positive
action so you can eliminate them. And thatís the subject of the
next chapter. Positive action is the only appropriate response
to a negative thought.
thoughts contain the seeds of their own destruction. Listen to
your negative thoughts, learn from what they have to say, and
then take positive action to eliminate them.
POSITIVE ACTION IS THE ONLY APPROPRIATE RESPONSE TO A NEGATIVE
thoughts are either a call to more negative thoughts or a call
to positive action. How you answer the call determines whether
you will have a positive or negative mind.
When negative thoughts come
calling, one of two things happens. They either create a
cascade of more negative thoughts, or you take positive action
to eliminate them.
Negative thoughts are the most
powerful thought magnet in the world. Itís impossible to think
only one negative thought. When you think the first one,
suddenly dozens of new ones pop into your mind, and they donít
go away. Negativity is a gift that never stops giving.
In Las Vegas when you put money
in a slot machine, you almost never win. You pull on the handle
hundreds of times and usually lose your money. Negative
thoughts are just the opposite. Pull on the handle of
negativity, and you hit the jackpot every time. Dozens,
hundreds, thousands of negative thoughts pour out from the slot
machine of negativity. Unfortunately, when you win, you lose.
No one needs to hit a negative jackpot.
That is one reason negative
thoughts are so dangerous. When they come to visit, they donít
come alone. They bring along their brothers, sisters, mother,
father, relatives, friends and acquaintances.
If it was possible to think
only one negative thought, and if it silently faded away within
a few minutes, then negative thoughts wouldnít be so harmful.
Unfortunately, it doesnít work that way. They never come one at
a time; they come in cascades. They push, shove, and infiltrate
every area of your mind, and they attempt to take total
control. When a negative thought comes to visit, itís not a
polite visitor. Itís an obnoxious intruder intent on destroying
your peace of mind.
