Have you ever had a great idea and talked yourself out of going for it? The negative thoughts of doubt and uncertainty are louder than the positive thoughts that would encourage you to keep striving for your goal. For some reason, it is easier for some of us to listen to the discouraging thoughts and not to the thoughts that tell us that we can achieve our goal or dream. Controlling our thoughts is not easy but it is necessary to keep ourselves encouraged so that we can continue to move forward with achieving our goals. Just as we watch the words that come out of our mouth, we must watch the thoughts that we allow to take hold in our minds. We must begin to push back against our negative thoughts. We have to learn to challenge these thoughts. If you begin to have thoughts that you are not strong enough to reach your goal, you counter it with the thought that you are strong and that you will reach your goal. If you begin to have thoughts that you are not worthy enough to even dream as big as you dare to dream, counter it with the thought that you are as good and as talented as those who are already where you want to be. I challenge you to counter those thoughts that bring you down into positive thoughts. When you begin to think more positive thoughts will you begin to see more positive results. What thoughts will you challenge today?
