If your first or second thought about a goal is how impossible it is, you’re sunk. If you believe it won’t work, it can’t. If you worry, curse, or complain, you are using your smart-thinking-brain to prevent success.
You know all this. And you want to stay focused on what feels good, on what is positive.
The problem is that, for reasons we’ve inherited from our ancestors, we believe we somehow must think negatively. “It just wouldn’t do to always focus on the positive. One must face facts, focus on reality.” We have long and habitually believed that reality is sober, sombre, and negative.
And that’s just not true. Everything…ev-ery-thing…contains both positive and negative. It’s just a matter of what you choose to see.
