Generally speaking, we are conditioned to think pretty pessimistically. We are taught to be ‘’realistic’’. We can hope for the best but we should expect the worst. We do not want to get too excited about things because we do not want to be disappointed when they do not work out. We are afraid of looking stupid if we think positively about something and it does not pan out. Often times, things do not go as planned or we do not get what we want and this reinforces these ways of thinking. We think it is right to think this way because look how things go most of the time.
It has been my experience that the way I think about something is a huge part in how things have turned out in my life. Did you ever think for a moment that the thoughts and beliefs you are holding might be influencing the events in your external world? Is it possible that expecting a negative outcome is what led to the negative outcome? I know this line of thinking is rejected by many people…it seems magical, unrealistic or naïve. It defies logical thinking..a line of thinking that definitely has its place , but does not even come close to being able to explain many things that happen in our world.
If you are someone who rejects the idea that our thoughts influence our lives, I ask you to be open to the possibility that there may be some truth to it. Consider how the current beliefs you hold are serving you. If things are not going so great in your life, honestly assess if your current belief system may be partly responsible for your current circumstances. Try changing your thought patterns and see what happens. Experiment with this new way of thinking any chance you get. If you really make a commitment to stick with it, I promise you results.
Instead of expecting the worst, expect the best. Instead of preparing yourself for disappointment, prepare yourself for getting what you want.
