The power of negative thinking
Negative thinking can make you feel that you can’t live pass yesterday’s problems, today’s circumstances or tomorrow’s challenges.
Every day you should do something that makes you better than you were yesterday. The only way to reach the success God desires for your life is for you to make a commitment to change the way you think.
You can always improve. You can always learn something new. You can always grow. You will find that what you get as you continue to improve your thought life daily is an important journey to becoming the person you were designed to be.
Set a goal each day to go farther and fight harder than you did yesterday. Above all, make it a priority to properly align your thinking with your purpose for life. It won’t be easy, but you can do it.
Negative thoughts will come to take you off course. Discouraging people will show up to distract your vision. Contrary thoughts will bombard your mind with doubts and fears encouraging you to give up on your dreams.
You don’t have to give into negative thinking. You have the power to change the way you think. Below are 49 thoughts to help you think differently.
