Do you ever stop to notice how you feel when you believe a certain thought?
Do you ever stop to notice what you do when you believe a certain thought?
Believing repeated negative thoughts produce repeated negative outcomes. The opposite is true as well.
My client, “Allison,” was having some challenges with the staff she was managing. Even though she was well qualified and personable, she had the belief that she was not a “good manager.” Her belief was not rooted in any objective evidence.
When Allison believed that she was a lousy manager, she noticed she felt defeated, unmotivated and frozen in her decisions. Her behavior resulted in limiting her communication, which was very much needed, with her staff on an upcoming project. Once she became aware of this, she changed her thought, and her ability to manage improved.
NOTICE HOW YOU FEEL and WHAT YOU DO WHEN YOU BELIEVE CERTAIN THOUGHTS:
Take a moment to notice how you feel when you choose to believe a negative or limiting thought. How is your energy? What do you do?
If certain thoughts make you want to crawl under the covers with a couple bags of cookies, you might want to work on replacing those thoughts. If other thoughts make you feel energized, try focusing on those, they may help you slow down the aging process.
SCIENCE SUPPORTS NEGATIVITY IS BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH!
If you have some negative thoughts that make you feel bad and cause you stress, you might also be causing yourself to age quicker than you wish. According to Nobel Prize winning molecular biologist, Elizabeth Blackburn, chronically viewing things in a negative manner may shorten your telomeres, the part of your cells that cause you to age.
Skip the botox or hair transplant.
Change your thoughts.
Your attitude matters, and will make you feel better!
