Dealing with negative thoughts

The mind is such a powerful tool and we are still discovering a lot more of it’s capabilities. Much has been taught about the mindset and how the state of our mind affects the state of our lives.

One of the things that fascinates me about the insane is how everything they do appears normal to them. The thing with that is, they are actually trying to make their outside world line up with their inner thoughts. If they didn’t try to do that, they would feel they were losing their minds, even though in reality they had already lost it.

As funny as it sounds, we could be walking in various degrees of insanity when we are caught up in a negative mindset. If our minds tell us that it will not work out, we subconsciously sabotage ourselves to keep the congruence between what we think and what we see.

Have you ever had the issue of always losing things? If you think back to the various times you lost something, you will remember yourself saying, “I always lose things” just after you had lost that thing. If you feel certain events always happen to you, that is what you will work towards knowingly or unknowingly.

You have to break the cycle of negative thoughts by acknowledging them when you catch yourself ruminating, and then consciously think of the positive alternative. It is not an easy thing to do, but it is well worth it because until you change your mind you are unlikely to change your world.
