ZERO TOLERANCE TO NEGATIVE THINKING
NEGATIVE THOUGHTS ALERT YOU TO THE FACT THAT SOMETHING IS
When I sail on
the ocean, I carry a variety of emergency signaling devices that
someday may save my life. My parachute flares are especially
effective; they shoot several thousand feet up in the sky and
then slowly float down to the ocean alerting other people that I
am in distress.
I chose the
best and most expensive flares for my yacht. My SOLAS flares
shoot up more than twice as high in the sky, are three times
brighter, and last seven times longer than cheap flares. They
are also three times more expensive. If disaster happens and I
end up floating in a life raft, I want only the best flares that
stay up in the sky the longest time. Those flares are there for
a purpose, and that purpose is to save my life.
thoughts are like the flares on my yacht. They are signaling
devices letting you know something bad is happening in your
mind. Negative thoughts donít just happen; something causes
them to appear. They are there for a reason.
thoughts reveal whatís happening inside your mind. They reflect
your approach to life and your habits of thought. Some people
run their mind in such a manner that negative thoughts are
rarely present. Other people find a continual cascade of
negative thoughts rushing through their mind.
thoughts are extremely destructive, and unrestrained negative
thinking will destroy your life. When negative thoughts appear,
they are like a signal flare fired off by your mind letting you
know something is wrong. Unfortunately, most people donít pay
attention to the message. To them, negative thoughts are simply
an irritation they wish would go away.
thoughts will play a role in your life, and you need to be
certain they play a positive role. Negative thoughts have

stop sign. They alert you to the fact there is a problem. They
make you stop what you are doing, and force you to deal with it.
Negative thoughts point
in the direction of the problem. Unfortunately, you may look at
the pointing finger rather than to where the finger points.
When you look at the negative thoughts, you are looking at the
pointing finger. When you look at where the finger points, you
see the source of your negative thoughts. Once you know the
source, you can do something about them.

you are doing fine, the negative thoughts go away. If you
continue charging up the hill of error, the negative thoughts
Negative thoughts have
tremendous motivational value. When you suffer from a plague of
negativity, you are highly motivated to eliminate it.
Donít dwell on your negative
thoughts any longer than necessary, but pay attention to what
they say. Negative thoughts help you identify the source of
your problems. If you listen to the message and take positive
action, good things will happen in your life.
NEGATIVE THOUGHTS ARE A STOP SIGN

STOP doing it.
Highly motivated people often have trouble stopping what they
are doing. When they stop, they feel like they are
surrendering. They know that if they donít persevere, they will
never reach their dreams.
their efforts and continue pursuing a strategy doomed to
failure. This is wrong; instead of working harder, they need to
stop what they are doing. No matter how fast they run, if itís
in the wrong direction, they will never reach their dreams.
individuals charge through life never paying attention to
feedback from family, friends, and colleagues. They demonstrate
no awareness of the consequences of their actions, and they
donít understand that they create most of their own problems.
Their chaotic world is full of negative thoughts telling them to
stop what they are doing, find out what is wrong, and fix it.
thoughts suddenly pop up in your mind, you need to understand
they are there for a purpose. They are a stop sign; you need to
stop doing the wrong thing, and start doing the right thing.
Stop hurting yourself. Stop the conflict. Stop the
depression. Stop the toxic lifestyle. Stop putting toxic waste
into your mind.
