Your life and its happiness rely primarily on what you say to yourself. If you say things that motivate you in one way or another, you can make a huge difference in your life. On the contrary, self-defeating thoughts may prove to be toxic for your happiness. Each moment you think you are busy working on some or the other thing, thoughts keep revolving round and round in your head. They have the power to make you stronger or weaker. You believe and eventually turn into the kind of a person you guide yourself to be. Here are a few thoughts that you have to keep miles away from you:
If only thoughts
You can hardly expect yourself to achieve something in life when you find it hard to accept your true self. You can never move ahead in life if you are not comfortable with yourself. Your thoughts actually determine your limitations. You can never expect yourself to go beyond what you think you are capable of since you are nothing but outcome of your own thoughts. Engage in positive self-talk that boosts up your energy to achieve great things in life.
No pain, no gain
If you believe, you can save yourself from potential failures if you do not take risks in life than it is you biggest misconception. Those who do not take risks do not get success in life. You have the power to change your life with the kind of choices you make, take your chances to attain your goals in life. The worst thing that can happen is failure, which again comes with learning to rectify your mistakes that mean you have nothing to lose. If you learn to tolerate pain of struggle, success would be just around the corner.
Make your own decision and do not blame others
Takes suggestions of your friends and loved ones, analyze all the possibilities and make your decisions yourself. Learn to live with the consequences of your decisions without playing a blame game. No one but you have the power to make or break your life. Playing the blame game never lets you move forward in life since it never lets you take control of your life in your own hands.
It’s never too late to start a new life
What’s done is done, you can never change your past. All you can do is accept what you are and move on in life. Do not let others discourage you, no matter what. Get rid of the habit of procrastination. Success demands you to be consistent and remain committed. Do not step back in life just because you do not wish to face failures. Do not hesitate to sacrifice your comfort since it keeps pulling you backward in life. Come out of your comfort zone to see great things happening in life.
Everything happens for a reason
Do not blame your destiny for your difficulties since everything happens for a reason. Your troubles make you even stronger and prepare you for the worse. If you look back in life, you will give all the credit to your failures and struggles to turn you into a better person. Have full faith in your abilities and face your struggles head on.
You have nothing to lose
If you do not make big plans and take risks, you can hardly move on in life. If you take risk and fail, you would only add another experience to your life and success motivates you. On the contrary, there are bright chances that you get success and change your life forever. In either situation you have nothing to lose, even a failure gives you a valuable learning.
It is not easy to feed good thoughts to your brain when you are going through a rough phase in your life. However, when you are well aware of the negative affects of the powerless thoughts, you think twice before entertaining a weak thought since it can turn you into a weaker self.
