TOLERANCE TO NEGATIVE THINKING
ONLY EMBRACE RISK IN A POSITIVE
STATE OF MIND
take risks in a positive state of mind. If you take risks in a
negative, failure conscious frame of mind, you will fail. When
you take risks, you must be positive about the outcome and
willing to endure the temporary challenges of repeated failures
along the way. If you arenít positive, your first failure will
take you across the finish line without reaching your dreams.
Donít listen to the critics and naysayers. They lack the
qualifications to offer advice to the doers of life. Positive
people have a different way of seeing; their vision is clearer,
and they see opportunities that others canít see.
THE WAY OUT IS DIFFERENT THAN THE
When you drive
in the large sand dunes of southern Arabia, you come to a region
called the Mundafin. In this area, the dunes are hundreds of
feet high. One side of each sand dune has a gradual slope
leading to the top of the dune. The other side consists of a
sharply angled slip face. These sand dunes run in long
corridors that can be anywhere from a few kilometers to hundreds
of kilometers long.
As you drive in the soft sand,
you quickly learn the tricks and traps of navigating in the
Mundafin. Novices easily become trapped in these dunes, because
the way out of the dunes is different than the way in.
When a city slicker drives his
jeep down a hundred-foot slip face, he suddenly realizes he has
entered the land of no return. If he ever escapes from the
dunes, he will have to find a way out different than the way he
came in, because itís impossible to drive up a hundred-foot slip
There is one other Mundafin
surprise for the city slicker. Just when he thinks he has found
the way out of a long corridor of sand, the end of the corridor
closes off and is impassible. The apparent way out evaporates,
and heís trapped.
The Bedouins who live in the
Mundafin know the secret of the sand. If one sand valley
doesnít take you where you want to go, then drive up and over
the top of the next dune, ride the hundred-foot slip face down
to the bottom, and try the next corridor of sand, because it may
take you where you want to go.
As long as you donít run out of
fuel or panic, youíll be fine. Sometimes you must travel in the
wrong direction for twenty kilometers before you reach a sandy
corridor that allows you to escape from the sand trap. The way
out isnít impossible; itís just different than the way in.
Negative thoughts are like the
sands of the Mundafin; they are hard to escape, and the way out
is different than the way in. Negative thinking gets you into
trouble, but it canít get you out. You need to head in a new
direction, and that direction needs to be positive.
find yourself stuck in the dunes of depression, you will need
the help of someone who knows the way out. A positive friend
may be able to show you the way, or you may need a therapist to
help you escape.
SURVIVE THE STORMS OF NEGATIVE
is a warning to those who want to have a positive mind and live
their dreams. Your dreams will die a slow and painful death if
you let negative thinking take over. You must have zero
tolerance to negative thinking.
It is a mistake to spend a large
amount of time worrying about negative thinking, because what
you think about will expand into your consciousness. Negative
thinking is clearly the wrong focus.
On the other hand, you live in a
turbulent world and negative thinking is the eye of the storm.
Itís cyclone season three hundred sixty five days a year in the
world where you live. If you donít understand the cyclone of
negativity sweeping around the globe, you wonít be ready for its
onslaught. Recognize it, prepare for it, and then survive it.
Zero tolerance to negative thinking is your passport to a
