A new post by John Schemm reminded me that we create our own reality.
I'm particularly guilty of negative thinking. In my private lending business, it's part of what I do - look at the worst case scenarios and try to arrange circumstances such that we are protected from that worst case scenario. So it's an occupational hazard.
So let's pick the subject apart for a minute. If you think you can't, you probably don't try. If you don't try, it ain't happenin. End of story.
But if you think you can, you start the steps to make it happen. You assume success. If you come to a bump in the road, you drive around it, and eventually, you achieve what you set out to do. You have created the reality.
Even the graphic here focuses on negativity - better to go with the positive.
In fact, the reason I'm writing this is to remind myself that of course I can. Negative thoughts in my mind are crippling. They center emotional energy on a negative outcome and create the reality. I'm clearing out the negativity and taking a deep breath and tackling the day.
Make it a great one!
