Taming those thoughts
How often do you talk yourself into a panic or even convince yourself you can't do something even though you know you are fully prepared to do it? For me, I have days of full out confidence were I feel I can take on the world and nothing can stop me. Then there are other days I can convince myself I can't do the very thing I told myself I was ready to do just days before. These are the days I feel defeated and unworthy of success in my life, I'm sure you've also felt this way many times through life.
When we stop and we are aware of what is going on without reacting to negative feedback we become a master of our thoughts. To often we get suckered into listening to our imagination and give into negative self talk. Here is the most effective way for dealing with your inner GREMLINS.
1. Stop and be aware by simply listening to your thoughts.
2. Know you have the choice to not give into negative thinking.
This process takes a bit of practice so don't give up in the beginning, just be aware of the thoughts and know you do not need to act on them. Before you know it you will become a true master of acting upon all the right thoughts that fill your mind.
