The Importance of Developing the Proper Negative Thinking Strategies Learning to develop a truly positive attitude and acquiring these rewards from your life is all a matter of the right thoughts you cultivate. Don t fret about this piece being about only the all positive all-and-sundry type of positive thinking. The reality is, an attitude of negativity is just as much a cause for poor health as a positive one. In fact, it may be more dangerous to your well-being since negative thinking can set you up for failure. https://www.jackcanfield.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/daily-affirmations.jpg [Image Source](https://www.jackcanfield.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/daily-affirmations.jpg) It is important that you focus on positive thoughts as opposed to negative thoughts. In order to do this, you need to stop yourself on a thought like "I will never achieve my goals." As great as that sounds, it really puts a damper on your goal setting. You are already down on yourself and by believing you won't achieve your goals you actually create a self-fulfilling prophecy. Instead, focus on what you can do to make your goals attainable. You want to develop a mind that sees possibilities rather than limitations. Limitations are often what keep us stuck in our comfort zone. For instance, if you sit down at your desk thinking about how much money you make at your job, you are likely to get discouraged. However, if you start thinking about all the things you could do to increase your income, you are likely to break through that limiting thought and get motivated to take action. Developing a mindset that looks beyond a limiting thought and towards a more unlimited future is the only way to reach your goals. There are tons of books out there to help you with developing the right thoughts and actions needed to achieve your goal. I would highly recommend checking them out. However, before doing so, I would like to point out a very important principle. This is crucial for achieving goals and reaching your goals quickly. This principle is the law of attraction. The law of attraction says you are what you think about. If you think about negative and limiting thoughts, they will become attracted to you. The truth is, most people have no control over what thoughts they think about. This is where you need to be careful. For example, if you go to the park and sit by a tree, and lots of people are around you, but you don't really want to get up and get into the tree, you don't think about being in the tree. These thoughts are easily attracted into your mind. If you want to develop a goal, the same thing happens. You will attract into your mind, whatever it is you want to attract. This sounds almost silly, but when you're sitting at home watching TV and you hear someone say something you don't want to hear, you immediately think about how much you want to listen to that person. But, you don't act on it. This happens all of the time, because we don't want to do what people are saying. So, instead we allow our minds to wander off and imagine that someone else is actually talking to us while they are saying those things. But this is why most people never develop goals and so never accomplish their goals. https://www.netnewsledger.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/personality.jpg [Image Source](https://www.netnewsledger.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/personality.jpg) Developing the right thoughts - to attract the kind of life you want - is really not that hard. And, once you have developed a few positive thoughts, you can train yourself to attract even more of them. This means developing the right thoughts - one at a time - every day and you'll achieve the success you want. Developing the right thoughts - developing attraction - is a powerful and fast growing secret many people who use the law of attraction are using.
