Negative thoughts are like weeds in a garden. They start out small and hardly noticed, but if you don’t yank them out quickly, they grow and spread. Soon, before you realize it, they will choke out your self-confidence and destroy your self-esteem.
Words can be bitter and sting. They rip to the core if you allow them to. Cut them out. Replace them with positive words. Nothing kills motivation faster than saying, “I’m not good enough. I can’t do this.” If you say those things, you’re defeated before you even start. So why try?
Instead, let’s say, “I am going to do this. I am going to succeed.”
Be positive. Don’t allow others to dictate your success. Don’t get caged in by others who want nothing else except your failure. Sadly, there are people like that. People you think are friends. But real friends offer encouragement. They want you to succeed. Step out of your comfort zone and take the initiative to achieve your goals. You’ll be surprised at your success if you believe in yourself.
