One a day

Challenge yourself today to change just one thought from negative to positive. As you go through the day, be aware of your negative thoughts and select just one to turn around.

Is there someone of whom you’ve always held a negative opinion? Now’s your chance to change that. Is there something you’ve always thought you could not do? Perhaps you’d like to reconsider. Find just one of those negative thoughts. Then find a way to make it positive.

You are in control of your thoughts. Those negative, limiting thoughts which “come to you” are in reality coming from you. You have the power to change them. And when you do, great things can happen.

So give it a shot. Discover how readily you can change your thoughts, and how effective that can be. Just imagine what your world would look like if you changed only one negative thought each day. Think of the new perspectives you could gain, and of the opportunities that could open up for you.

Take the challenge today. Pay attention to your negative thoughts. Select just one and make it positive. Discover what an immediate and valuable difference it can make in your life and in your world.
