Have you ever heard someone say something like, “I guess I’ll try to knock this homework out, but I’m not very good at math” or “I’m gonna knock out this math homework and get an A”? These are two sentences about the same thing, but the person who said the first one may not do so well, whereas the person who said they are going to get an ‘A’ will probably do pretty well. Henry Ford said it best when he said,
“Whether you think you can or think you can’t—you’re right.”
What is Wrong With Us???
Why do we do it to ourselves? We have this negative self-talk that pretty much says we are not going to be successful. Then when we aren’t successful, we say, “I told you so.” It is like we don’t want to be successful, so we aren’t successful. Too many times we have negative thoughts about what we are capable of and talk ourselves out of being the person we are capable of being. We may talk negatively to ourselves because we have had some pretty bad failures in the past, or perhaps it was a parent who was really hard on us, putting us down. It doesn’t matter why, just get off that sinking ship!!! What matters is what are you going to do about it?
We have to be positive in life. If we put out a negative vibe, negativity will find us. If we put out a positive vibe, guess what? Positivity will find us. Stop feeling sorry for yourself and saying, “I just can’t get ahead.” Instead say, “I am going to get ahead!!!” When you say you CAN’t do something, you are telling your subconscious there is no use, so it won’t try as hard. But if you say you CAN do something, your subconscious mind will get to work and help your dreams become a reality. Positive expectations brings positive things!!!
It Rains On All Of Us
Listen, we all have rainy days. Even the rich and famous have bad days. Life doesn’t care who you are, what color you are, or what you do for a living. It will come at you just the same. All you can do is prepare for it. Prepare with a positive, strong state of mind. A state of mind that says “things will work out for me…they always do.” A positive state of mind that says you will tackle any challenge as it hits your doorstep and be stronger because of it. The rain is not so bad when you have an umbrella, and that umbrella is the positive aura you surround yourself with. Don’t stand in the rain without your umbrella!!!
Life is as you think it is and you are as capable as you think you are. Believe in yourself and your ability to be successful. Believe that no matter what comes at you, you will kick it’s ass and take names. Positivity has to be a way of life if you have any chance of finding happiness and success. When we believe in ourselves, we tell our subconscious that it has to live up to your expectations. And when you have your subconscious working for you, along with your conscious brain, things will take off. Nothing can stop you when you believe you can’t be stopped. When it rains, no worries. Have your umbrella ready and you won’t get wet. Remember,
“Whether you think you can or think you can’t—you’re right.” — Henry Ford
