Get Positive by Juli Shulem

We can all find something to complain about rather easily, but where does the complaining lead us?  Stop and think about the amount of energy wasted on negative thinking. Break the negative pattern in two steps!

Step One. Complaining and negative thinking really depletes positive energy, leaving debilitating negative energy. In other words, that which you spend time thinking about is what you will tend to manifest. Therefore, constant complaining could mean you may be bringing depleting energy into your world.

Are you a constant complainer? Ask yourself:

What do I complain about the most?
What has the complaining or negative thinking brought into my life?
Has anything GOOD come from the complaining?
What BAD has come from the negative thoughts?
If I were to become more positive, how would that change things?

Now try this:
Catch yourself being negative!
Notice when you are complaining!

Here’s a quick visual: place a jar on the counter and put in a quarter every time you catch yourself complaining. (Remember the goal is to keep the jar empty!) However, if the jar becomes full, think about donating the proceeds at the end of the month, at least something positive will come from all that negative thinking!

Step Two. Do you have a certain person in your life that exists primarily to listen to your complaints? Release this individual from being subjected to your continued negative thinking. Make it a conscious daily goal to be positive.

Becoming aware of the negativity is the first step to improving your mindset. The second step is to get busy and do something positive!
