Our brains follow our instructions. Our moods shape our thoughts. Negative thinking produces negative actions.
Focusing on instructing your brain to switch into positive thinking will produce positive outcomes in your life.
For example, if you put the alarm on to get up in the morning to go to work, but before you go to bed you tell yourself that you are tired, that you are in fact exhausted and that you will not manage the next day, then the next morning you will start the day tired and continue in that mode all day long. And probably also in a bad mood!
Negative thinking lowers your energy levels and prepares you for failure.
However, if before you go to bed you tell yourself that you are tired now but after a good night sleep you will successfully complete the next day, then you will have a positive and successful day ahead of you.
Plan for success. Make your mornings easy. Prepare all you can prepare the night before, then go to bed with a clear feeling that the next morning you will have an easy time before facing your day.
Every time you are tempted to think negative then consciously change your thoughts. Be hard on yourself.
If you forget easily what you need to get done the next day, and that is leading you to stress and exhaustion, then invest on a small notebook that you carry around with you. Write lists on it detailing what you need to get done that day and for the next day.
Of course we are in a modern world, you can also make your list on your mobile phone!
But for me personally nothing beats the feeling that I get when I use my little notebook!
Seek positive thoughts and you will be on the road to success!
