Tap Into a New Channel
Wednesday, April 21, 2021 - Joe Kiedinger
You just stepped out of another meeting that felt like a battle. You shake your head and think to yourself, “When are they going to get it? We can’t keep doing business the same way and expect different results! Why didn’t they hear me out? I have so many good ideas!”
You may even have post-meeting vent sessions where you shout these thoughts to a like-minded co-worker. But where does this thinking get you? The spouting of negativity doesn’t move you forward.
Did you know the brain is wired to be negative 80% of the time? We imagine that the world is out to get us and that things are falling apart. What if I told you it doesn’t have to be that way? It takes focus and willpower, but you can change the trajectory of your life.
As American New Thought writer Wallace Wattles said, “The universe desires you to have everything you want to have. Nature is friendly to your plans. Everything is naturally for you. Make up your mind that this is true.”
Like the concept of a self-fulfilling prophecy, we have control over the direction of our lives. Positive energy thrives, negative energy dies. It’s time to tap into a new channel.
So, let’s start re-training our brains right in this moment. Let’s think positive and get positive. Let’s envision that everything is out to serve us. Let’s think and receive. Let’s go with the flow of nature, like the jet stream and the ocean currents.
ACTION PLAN: When you catch yourself falling into a negative headspace, pause. Then redirect your thinking. What you think, you become.
