Why is it so easy to think negatively? Well, how simple can it get, really. Our active mind finds it simple to imagine the negative outcomes of your new business plan, your next uttered phrase or that meeting with a client you have coming up the next minute or the next day.
Queer as it may seem, it’s easier to visualize all the things that can go wrong. Can’t help it, you say.
Here’s what is obvious: when you visualize clearly, and keep thinking about it over and over again, you don’t actually lessen the chances that you’re going to mess things up.
In fact, you may be fueling your chances and increase the odds against your favor.
When you choose to visualize the positive, the wonderful, the profitable, the awesome…voila! you’re more likely to keep your gems and in fact create the opportunity for great things to happen.
It is such a bad habit to cultivate something that leads us to failure. It has never brought much success, if it brings any at all.
