5 toxic thoughts that are consuming you right now

Don’t feed your mind with negative thoughts. If you do, you will come to believe them. Catherine Pulsifer

 

Nothing is a greater killer of the mind than toxic thoughts. We are for the most part our own worst enemies.

1. The grass is always greener on the other side. Maybe its like the sign saying wet paint by the park bench, we always have to check to make sure. Guess what the grass on the other side is greener, because your paying so much attention to it that for forgot to pay attention to you own grass. Just because something looks better doesn’t mean it is, everything has its own problems no matter how green it looks.

2. Starting tomorrow, or even worse on Monday. What’s so special about Monday. If you really want to get something done start today. By putting of tasks until tomorrow, which never comes you will never get anything done, your brain will simply go into excuse overdrive

3. Its too much. Its never too late to be a better version of yourself. Have a look at the 80 year olds doing university degrees. No matter what has come before in your life, you can always improve, do better and change. Age and life experience solely help you to persevere more deeply.

4. What I want to do isint good enough. Probably the worst negative self talk is the not good enough kind. People are so scared of perceived failure and/or putting themselves out there that they would rather keep their ideas inside. Your ideas are probably brilliant, speak up.

5. Needing someone else to make you happy. If your not happy within yourself, a significant other will not make you happy. You need to learn how to make yourself happy instead on relying on everyone else to make you happy within yourself. This is obviously different if you just need cheering up, but if you can’t live with yourself happily you can’t live with others happily either.
