Negative thoughts can be found everywhere, in ourselves, our families, jobs or business. Unlike the air that we need to sustain us, negative thoughts deplete and derail our desire of living full, happy and successful lives. Our thoughts are powerful, and if they are not restrained or redirected they can cripple us for a lifetime. A best practice in overcoming this cycle is mastering self-awareness. When we are self- aware, we know what triggers negativity in us. Once that is identified – we can develop a solid strategy to defeat this process at the root and change the narrative. By changing the channel, we change our mindset thus stopping the signal by regaining control of our thought process. Once that happens, we can begin to mold our thoughts into something that contributes to a more positive and productive outlook.
