How to Stamp Out Negative Thoughts Fast
You've probably heard that one of the most common practices of successful people is positive
thinking. But how easy is it to really make this a practice in your life?
Sure, you've probably had good days where you could keep your thoughts positive and empowering.
But what about those days when it just seems that nothing is going right and you can't seem to keep the flies of
negative thought from ruining your picnic?
If you're curious about the solution to this dilemma, this simple yet powerful strategy might be just what
you're looking for...
Reframing Your Thoughts
The first key to stamping out negative thoughts fast is to accept that your thoughts not only influence your
actions, but that they are also influenced BY the actions which you take in response to them. In other words, when
you allow fear to influence you to act fearfully, that fear is only going to grow more and more powerful.
But if you refuse to allow fear to influence you to fearful actions, and if you choose acts of
courage instead, you'll find that your fear will take on a context: excitement. Think about this: biologically, the
differences between fear and excitement aren't any different. They both cause accelerated heartbeat, rapid
breathing and a heightening of your physical senses.
But there is an enormous difference in the frame of mind that accompanies fear and that which accompanies
excitement, and that frame of mind is influenced by your experiences. For example, if you fear rejection and choose
to retreat into the privacy of your own thoughts, you're only reinforcing what you fear through what psychologists
call "self-rejection." Fortunately, you can learn powerful affirmations and how to talk to yourself.
On the other hand, you choose to act in courage by either approaching that prospect, or speaking to that member
of the opposite sex who you're afraid of being rejected by, you give that fear a new context. And the more
persistent you are in confronting your fear with acts of courage, the less like fear it will seem, and the more
excitement you'll feel.
This is the fastest and most effective way to stamp out "negative" thoughts. Now, in case you're
thinking that this sounds way too simple to be true...
Making the Switch
Have you ever changed your mind about something? Of course you have...but what really changed? Most likely it
wasn't your mind, it was your actions...and those actions changed because your priorities changed. In other words,
you decided that a new action was more important than your original action.
This is exactly the key to reframing your thoughts by taking new and empowering actions. The next time your
overwhelmed by worry or fear, or any other kind of negative thought, ask yourself this: "What action is this
negative thought keeping me from taking?"
If the action is stupid or if you don't have it planned out, then your "negative" thought might be completely
valid. It might be telling you that you need to develop a more solid plan of action. But if the action is something
which would be beneficial to you or someone you care about, redirect your focus to what's really important.
Your thoughts and emotions are influenced by what you focus on, and the more you focus on what's important to
you, the less thoughts and feelings of fear and worry will hinder you from taking positive action. You'll also be
more empowered to confront your negative thoughts with acts of courage, and those actions will reframe your
TIP: The next time that you have a "negative" thought, stop and think about what that thought might be trying to
tell you. Most often, once you discover the source of your negative thoughts, they lose their power to influence
you. But if you keep trying to bury them, you'll miss the insight that they hold, and the more persistent they'll
