What is the Most Powerful Habit?

It’s easy to create a negative belief. They come from so many sources, like first impressions, disappointment, failure, embarrassment, fear, exhaustion…

Your default may be to think something happened (or might happen). Our bad feeling becomes a negative belief: that bad things always happen.

Our negative belief changes how we act. Soon the voice in our head sounds like:

🔹”They are always difficult to be with.”

🔹“I can never get this right.”

🔹“Nobody wants to buy my stuff.”

🔹If I fail, I’ll lose everything.”

🔹“I never have enough energy.”

Dr. Martin Seligman, the father of positive psychology, tells us that when we create a negative belief, our problem goes from a small thing that happened once or twice to…

🔹PERMANENT (It isn’t going away)

🔹PERSONAL (It’s my fault)

🔹PERVASIVE (It always happens)

HERE IS WHAT I KNOW:

🔹NEGATIVE BELIEFS filter reality and filter good news out.

🔹NEGATIVE BELIEFS stomp out good thoughts before they can grow.

🔹NEGATIVE BELIEFS kill dreams and keep us small.

How do people get out of the funk?

Find something TODAY that you can be positive about, just because you can.

  1. Interesting Blog, Important suggestions. We also tend to relive the negative events we had, so that a driving incident, perhaps, we tell our spouse about it, but also use an aggravated tone doing it. Convey the information of the incident without reliving the tension. As a Union Rep, I was good at controlling my disposition when speaking to supervisors. It eventually became 2nd Nature, and was beneficial to myself. Of course, the supervisors were largely professional, and after being around them, I think I was emulating their professionalism. Reliving the experience will never really be meaningful to the person you’re speaking with, they weren’t there, and creates tensions that need not exist. The same applies when remembering it.

    I videoed a Utility Worker that I had a traffic incident with (no contact, just driving manners), he came back to my car at a Red Light. When I got home, I showed the video to my wife. It was me acting like a complete jerk, and a calmly speaking Utility Worker (although he realized I was videoing him). Sometimes we forget our involvement in aggravating a circumstance.

  2. “Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.”
    ‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭8‬ ‭NKJV

    I pray this all the time as I am going to sleep and the enemy is trying to plant things in my head! I pray it often over myself and my family.
