One psychologist’s suggestions for improvement or life changes are paraphrased below. Platitudes about positive thinking alone are not convincing, but she pointed out how and why it works.
To paraphrase her words: The subconscious mind does not judge, but only seeks to obey our thoughts and unconsciously bring about situations and actions to make them come to pass . We therefore must learn first of all, to recognize a negative thought, stop it cold in it’s tracks, and challenge the downer with a positive believable and convincing alternative. The subconscious will adopt the newest thought, the positive one, and will set in motion, things to make it come to pass.
Can this affirmation technique help us examine situations and see if a positive light can shine on them?
For example, Mondays are a fabulous opportunity for a fresh start to the work week! Have a good one, all.
