Stop Negativity In 3 Easy Steps

By

Let’s face it, we live in a world that promotes negativity.

Don’t believe it?

Then go ahead and crack open the daily newspaper in any given
town in America. With all the murders, mayhem, dire economic news,
and man’s ongoing inhumanity to his fellow man, it just makes you
want to go hide under a rock.

Unfortunately, the promotion of negativity can greatly affect
the attitude of solo business owners.

And NOT in a constructive way.

In fact, if you are constantly harboring negative thoughts and
feelings, your business is DOOMED to suffer negative consequences.

Up to, and including, going OUT of business!

Your business will move in the direction that your thoughts
take it.

Why?

Because our thoughts determine our actions.

Over the years, mostly through trial and error, I have developed
a 3 step process that absolutely CRUSHES negativity!

Yep, STOPS it right in it’s tracks.

So, follow these 3 steps and watch your attitude soar like an eagle!

Step 1) Practice Daily Gratitude

Far and away, your greatest weapon against a stinky attitude is
expressing gratitude. Before you begin your work day, before you
even boot up your computer, spend 15 minutes or so making a list
of what you are most grateful for in your life.

Don’t leave ANYTHING out.

Read your selections out loud. You see, negativity blinds you
to anything positive in your life. By verbally expressing
your gratitude, you train your sub-conscious to put up barriers
to negative thoughts.

EVERY day that you express gratitude in this fashion, the barriers
become higher and higher. Pretty soon, there is no more room in
your dominating thoughts for negativity.

Expressing gratitude causes you to become more grateful, and less
“hateful.”

Step 2) Use Bed Time To Your Advantage

Right before retiring each night, read your favorite motivational
quotations, your favorite inspirational books etc. As you read,
practice visualizing positive images that the words create
in your mind. Also, become aware of the positive feelings you are
experiencing.

Your sub-conscious is programmed most readily by your feelings
and emotions. Essentially, before you go to sleep each night,
reading and visualizing positive messages, is planting a “seed”
in your sub-conscious that will grow as you sleep.

You will wake up each morning feeling positive, and you
probably won’t know exactly why.

Also, it is helpful to listen to soft, soothing music as
you read the words.

Step 3) Exercise, Exercise, Exercise

OK, I’ll add one more….EXERCISE!

Begin an aerobic exercise program, and work up to performing
brisk aerobic exercise, 30 minutes daily, 5 days a week.

Check with your doctor before you begin an exercise program.

Aerobic exercise is any kind of exercise that elevates your
heart rate, and keeps it elevated for a prolonged period of time.

I generally recommend brisk walking to my clients. Walking
does not require any special skills or equipment, and it
can be performed indoors or outdoors.

Prolonged brisk walking triggers the release of brain chemicals
called endorphins. Endorphins are often referred to as the
“feel good” chemicals. They tend to produce feelings of well being.

In the case of long distance runners, these feeling are
often described as euphoric!

There you have it, 3 steps that stop negativity right in it’s tracks.
Always remember, your attitude is the one thing that nobody can
give you, and nobody can take away.
