1) Never say that you’re useless
No matter who you are, we all are meant to shine in this world. If you did something badly, it doesn’t mean that you will do it badly again or do it badly in other field or industry. Just get over it, all of us will fall some of the time, but you need to get back up and live again.
“Our glory is not in never falling, but in raising every time we fall.” Confucius
2) Never say that you’re lazy
No one is lazy in this world. It is just that either you don’t have empowering goals or you just don’t know how to tap into your personal potential. I strongly believe that we all are hard working in where we are passionate about. Some people procrastinate in doing their mathematics homework, but they feel ecstatic in doing their chemistry assignment, why is that? Does this means that they’re lazy? Not at all, it is just that you’re yet to find out the right place the truly belongs to you.
“People are not lazy, they simply have impotent goals – that is, goals that don’t inspire them” Anthony Robbins
3) Never think that it is impossible
30 years ago, connecting people using a small device is impossible, but in today’s world, smart phones are everywhere. 50 years ago, landing a man on the moon is impossible, but the human’s capabilities have shown what we can accomplish, giving enough time to it. So before you venture out to do something, never say that it is impossible for you, the word itself says, “I’m possible!”
“Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right” Henry Ford
4) Never say that you can’t
Just like what I’ve mentioned above, everything is possible, when you truly believe that you can achieve it. When you say you can’t do it, your mind automatically shut off all possibility and you will never think further. However, when you say it is possible and you can do it, you will automatically comes up with ideas how to do it. Even if you have no idea how, but your mind will come up with places to go for.
“A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because her trust is not on the branch but on her own wings.
5) Never say you’re not good enough
When you say you’re not good enough, it simply means that you acknowledge that there is space for you to improve and you can do even better. Therefore, don’t say that you’re not good enough, just say that you still need to learn and take it as a lesson when things don’t go according to your way. As long as you never give up, you will always have a chance to prove that you can do better.
“Above all things, never think that you’re not good enough. A man should never think that. My belief is that in life, people will take you at your own reckoning.” Anthony Trollope
6) Never think that you’re not as lucky as others
Never dwell in the thoughts that you’re not lucky. Just take a look at all the things you have. Compare yourself with people who don’t even have a place to sleep, homeless people and those who are starving without food, who are luckier now? If you are reading this right now, it simply means that you’re living a good enough life than many others around the world. Look at the good instead of the bad. Appreciate what you have and not blaming for what you don’t have.
“Diligence is the mother of good luck.” Benjamin Franklin
7) Never doubt your own ability
You can achieve great success if you just decide and commit to it. Never doubt your own ability; you’re much better than you think you are. Of course, success will never come overnight and it will never come without hard work. Albert Einstein, one of the most famous scientists of our time, only uses about 20% of his brain power and yet, he is able to achieve outstanding results in his field of research. What if you can tap into 10% of your brain’s potential?
“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” Albert Einstein
These are the 7 most common negative thoughts that will come to our mind some of the time. You have to remember that we’re not perfect and some time we will think negatively, especially during tough times. However, you have to make sure to never let these thoughts dwell in your mind. Be conscious about your thoughts, know what you think about most of the time and make sure you focus in only positive thoughts.
