Combating Negative Thinking With Positive Self-Talk

Are you always waiting for the “other shoe” to drop? If something good happens to you, are you looking over your shoulder waiting for something bad to happen too?

If you answered yes to both of those then it is a safe bet to assume you are stuck on the never ending wheel of negativity.

You just can’t allow yourself to be happy or trust positive feelings that may try to enter into your mind.

What is interesting is that some people don’t even realize how negative you are being towards yourself, and how you feel about life in general. You may have been dealing with it for so long that you consider it normal.

Well, the good news is, if you are tired of letting the negativity control you, you can combat those feelings by using positive self-talk. But you have to be ready and willing to accept that you are a good person and that you deserve to feel good about who you are.

When using positive self-talk the most important part is to combat those negative feelings anytime they come up, until they come less and then even less, until you hardly notice them at all. It is also important to pay attention so you notice the negativity coming through so you can take that thought and make it a positive one.

For example, “There is no way I passed that test, I just know I failed.” Should be turned into, “I studied really hard for that exam, and I know I did my best.”

For some people use affirmations along with positive self-talk works very well. Affirmations are simple concise statements that you can repeat to yourself as often as necessary. The idea is to train both your conscious and sub-conscious to think in a more positive way.

And again the idea is to continue to make the change from negative to positive until you do it without having to think about it.

And what is really amazing is how transforming it can be. You will go from negative, unhappy person, to an optimistic, happy person.

Positive self-talk takes the control that you have given up and takes it back. So keep combating the negative thinking with as much positive self-talk as it takes to wake up knowing you can do and be whatever you want to be.

Now, it is extremely important to remember that there will still be obstacles in life. Life doesn’t stop throwing those at you, so you have to be more prepared to handle them. You also have to be prepared to fail, because you will.

But if you use and practice positive self-talk daily and you will have an overall better attitude towards life. And when those things do happen you will be able to bounce back more quickly and with less negative thoughts about yourself and more positive thoughts, which is the name of the game.

One final thought, a little bit of negativity is not the end of the world, it can be a great motivator to want to do better, be better, so take the negativity and combat it with positive self-talk.
