The Law of Thinking is one of the most important Universal Laws.
Are we what we think?
Often we are not aware of this, but we have the power to change our thoughts.
This means we can learn to get aware of our thoughts. Whenever we feel not good, to look at what are we thinking about, is this really how it is, is there no other way?
Is all that I experience right now negative?
If we are aware and look at a negative situation differently, we will see, that in reality, it is our perception that makes it so, there is always another way.
We can get another perspective and find a way out of what we think is negative and think of a solution.
A young friend
A while ago I have been talking to a young friend. I knew she has an event coming up which made her struggle a long time, it was like a burden to her. She is about to organize an event and she does not have much help from others, which means no positive support. She was down and thinking only about negative things and what could go wrong.
When we were talking, I said, but the world is not ending for you with this event. There is a life after this and you can make all good again what this event may take from you.
Think about what can be the worst happen and accept it. It does not have to be the worst, but if we think about it and accept all look much better. I gave her one of my favorite quotes from Dale Carnegie :
“First ask yourself: What is the worst that can happen? Then prepare to accept it. Then proceed to improve on the worst“
This helped and made her feel more optimistic again.
If we stay too long in negative thoughts and feelings and complain, we make our lives unpleasant and all kinds of difficulties will show up.
We are able to change our thoughts and think in a more positive way and it will bring solutions and all kinds of better options will show up. We can change negative thoughts and feelings, by listening to music or being grateful and look out for nice things.
Try it and see. It works…
Did you experience any situations like this?
Are you able to change your thinking?

As I was reading this I could not help but think to myself: “Sometimes it feels so good to just go into the negative thinking and feel sorry for myself – for a little while.” But always, in a short time, I snap out of the doom and gloom and start to look at the bright side and begin to figure out what I can do to make the situation better, to leave it or to accept it for now, knowing it is temporary since everything in this world is temporary.

Hi Dr. Erica ,
yes sometimes we feel sorry for our self ,
but it is not pleasant .
Better to look at the good things in life and be happy .
It is so true, the longer we hold onto negativity, the more we think negative thoughts. As you stated, learning to deal with the negative thoughts, accepting them and then moving on is very important.
Thank You for sharing this post!

Hi Monisha ,
nice to see you here ,
Yes ,good is if we get aware of negative thoughts and learn to see
the positive site or change it .
So true, Erika, negative thinking is no good for us or for people around us. If you make a habit of thinking negatively it can take time and effort to change. It’s well worth it. I’m sure Dr Erica would agree that sometimes professional therapy is needed.

Hi Sue ,
yes ,sometimes it is a learning process and help is needed
to find the way out of negativity .we should try to notice
when we have negative thoughts and change it.
Henry Ford once said… “Whether you think you can, or think you can’t – you’re right.”
How true! Most things that manifest in our lives, Erika, manifest from our thoughts. First we think it, then we envision it, then we become it.
As for breaking out of negative thinking patterns, I find the best thing to do is start taking action on something, and complete it successfully. It triggers our subconscious mind to see we are capable of making good things happen. When that happens, we begin to believe in ourselves, and turn our negative thinking into positive and productive thoughts.

Hi David ,
you are right ,but for some people this is not that
easy ,some are not even aware that they are stuck
because of negative thinking .
I know people who never thought about .
Once somebody becomes aware ,it is true,
to take action and accomplish something ,
will bring them in a better state of mind .
Henry Ford’s quote is right.
But there is another quote : “Two percent of the people think; three percent of the people think they think;
and ninety-five percent of the people would rather die than think.”
George Bernard Shaw
Sometimes it seems he is right as well 🙂
Yes exactly WE ARE WHAT WE THINK, it’s staying conscious to what we say in our minds…Our self talk, and as soon as a negative thought appears, we chuck that thought straight out.
I remember reading a great book “The monk who sold his Ferrari” and he pictured his mind as a garden and at the ate of his garden is a massive sumo wrestler guarding the path to the mind. I thought this was a great vision to adopt, guard your thoughts and think successful

Hi Sean ,
yes, Robin Sharma’s book is very good .
Lots to learn from him .
I like what he teaches ,he has an Indian background .
and the roots of all this teachings are in the vedas.
“The person who is inspired by good thoughts
can accomplish all his vows successfully”
Thank you Sean
Great post. We do have to watch it sometimes that those negative ideas and thoughts don’t start taking over. Sometimes a little “pity-party” is good but not for long. Positivity brings much more happiness than negativity.
Have a great day.
