It's Monday, which means most of us are wondering what happened to the weekend, where the time went and how we ended up back in our desks at work. Our brains are just not ready work. The idea of laying in bed an extra 10 minutes, watching TV and simply doing nothing at all seem to control our thoughts, at least before that first cup of coffee anyways. What if you could train yourself to cancel negative thoughts and focus on the positive ones instead?
Well according to an article by Nadia Goodman posted today on Entrepreneur.com (http://bit.ly/134uPSZ), "By consciously increasing our focus on the positive, we start to even the balance. We find a happy medium where we can address failures and challenges without letting them get us down, leaving us more motivated, productive, and likely to succeed."
Who doesn't want to be more motivated, productive and likely to succeed? Goodman offers the following 3 tips to start training your brain to think and stay positive.
- Express gratitude.
- Repeat positive affirmations.
- Challenge negative thoughts.
I would like to say thank you for reading this share, I am happy I engage in work that impacts this world in a positive way and I will not think about negative thoughts today.
How will you use these 3 tips today?
