Be Positive

In today's  competitive business world, anxiety and stresses are common. In order to avoid negative thoughts use these simple procedures
A Negative Thought Stopping Procedure
The Five R's - A Negative Thought Stopping Procedure. In fact, the harder you try to 'not think about' something that is negative, the more powerful and entrenched in your mind that negative thought becomes, and the greater the negative influence it has on your performance. The only way to stop negative thoughts is to shift your thinking to thoughts - and images - that are both positive and productive with regard to your personal performance. Since the human mind can only process one thought at a time , you must actively choose to direct your mind toward (i.e. focus on) a Dominant Thought that is positive, productive, and directly related to how you want to perform.The Five R's are key words that summarize a Negative Thought Stopping procedure that can help you achieve this goal.  Implementing this thought process on a consistent basis, with intensity, is critical to successfully learning to stop negative or counter-productive thoughts.

Recognize - Recognizing that you are having a negative thought is a critical first step in learning to control negative thoughts. Consciously increasing your awareness and vigilance with regard to negative thinking will aid in the recognition and control of counter-productive and self-destructive thinking. You must be "on guard" to recognize the first signs of negative thinking in order to crush that thought before it has a chance to fully form and strongly take hold of your conscious mind.
Refuse - You must refuse to allow the negative thought to continue and gain strength by some positive and defined action (e.g. visualize a STOP sign in your mind's eye; snap a rubber band across your wrist every time you have a negative thought; etc.). You must do something to disrupt the negative image and/or thought in order to prevent it from growing stronger. By doing this, you begin the process of shifting your mind away from the negative thought.
Relax - Use any of a number of techniques that can help you to relax: take a deep, controlled breath; use a verbal trigger to shift your thoughts and feelings to a relaxing image; etc. When you are relaxed, the effect of mental programming is more powerful and you are ensuring that the next step in this 5-step procedure will have an increased potential to be effective.
Reframe - The 4th step in the Negative Thought Stopping procedure serves to complete a mental shift toward images and thoughts that are consistent with your best performance. Replace the negative thought with a positive image or thought. "I AM in control of my thoughts and actions, I can choose to respond and think the way I want to." "I've been here before and done this before, so I know I can do it again." "This is part of the process that I have chosen." Use imagery to 'see' and 'feel' the performance you want to achieve and how you want to BE as you achieve it. .
Resume - Continue your activities with a sense of confidence and control. You will always enjoy strong sense of confidence if you tie this mindset to a personal commitment to always give nothing but your best effort, regardless of the situation or outcome. The degree of effort you apply to the challenges that you face on an ongoing basis is totally, 100% within your control. it is one of the few things that is, in fact, fully within your control. Think about what you are like when you perform with excellence and what you want to achieve, and develop your confidence by always applying your best effort to achieve it. The next time you feel negative thoughts grabbing hold, use these Five R's to effectively change your thought patterns and bring about powerful results in your life. Make this your new habit! Never Give Up.

I can SO relate to this post, mate!

I've faced a lot of obstacles while starting up and they have done nothing but pull me down into the bogs every single time. That's when I decided to shrug off all my worries and start afresh - and it clicked!

Good post, I'll need to go through a lot of more posts in your blog, which seems interesting.

This is certainly an important post. The majority of people focus on all these techniques, they might even look for the quick answer, but the reality is that hard word pays dividends. Staying positive when we are not getting results is what it is all about and eventually; it all works out for the greater good :)

Everyone has negative thoughts from time to time. Unfortunately though, controlling and directing one's own thoughts is not something most people are taught. I have friends that I cannot even convince that it is possible to control one's own mind.

And keeping your mind directed in a positive and productive manner is crucial. I couldn't help thinking when I read one of your headers, "A Negative Thought Stopping Procedure" is that negative thoughts are often a stopper in our lives. They can paralyze us and cause us to take no action at all. Not good!

I like the way you laid it out. The 5 R's are definitely something to remember. Thanks!

This is something worth pondering on. I agree that the harder you try to 'not think about' something that is negative, the more powerful and entrenched in your mind that negative thought becomes, and the greater the negative influence it has on your performance.
