The TRUTH About What REALLY Causes Negative Thoughts

Written by Larry Bilotta

Do you feel that your negative thoughts are holding you back from being happy in life? You’re about to discover HOW you can still live HAPPILY when things don’t go your way….even if your life is filled with conflict and turmoil right now…and you can’t see a way out.

Are you a SLAVE to your circumstances? What I mean is, do you letrepparttar ups and downs of life control how you feel inside? If you do, don’t worry…you’re not alone.

Most people believe that it isrepparttar 139190 events that happen in your life that make you feel a certain way. For instance, you get a promotion…you feel good. A plane crashes…you feel bad. But what if that promotion added a significant amount of pressure to your job which made each day more stressful thanrepparttar 139191 next? And what ifrepparttar 139192 plane that crashed was an unmanned test plane built to save thousands of lives?

Despite what you may have heard, events themselves have NO MEANING. It’s true. It is notrepparttar 139193 events (the things that happen) around you that control how you feel. It’s something else entirely.

Ifrepparttar 139194 circumstances in your life are not what make you feel good or bad, then WHAT DOES?

If you’re thinking…..“my mother in-law”…bzzzzz…sorry, that’s not it either. It is NOTrepparttar 139195 people in your life ORrepparttar 139196 events that happen around you that controlrepparttar 139197 way you feel.

Instead,repparttar 139198 answer is…YOU. Only YOU haverepparttar 139199 power to control your feelings. I’ll prove it….

Imagine you’re laying in a hammock on vacation in Hawaii. It’s a beautiful day and there’s a slight breeze. It’s justrepparttar 139200 right temperature and nothing could makerepparttar 139201 day any more perfect. Then suddenly you get a call on your cell phone from your boss with news that a major corporation has just bought out your employer and hired a completely new staff…leaving you without a job!

Immediately your imagination becomes flooded with thoughts of your endless search for a job. You picture bill collectors ‘knocking at your door’ demanding last months mortgage payment andrepparttar 139202 bank coming to repossess your home! And so on, and so on…until almost instantly you start to feel nauseous.

Did you read that last part about when you start to FEEL nauseous? What’s happening in reality is you’re sitting onrepparttar 139203 beach enjoying your vacation….but what’s happening in your imagination is a series of negative images or ‘pictures’ caused by this sudden turn of events.

Now how could that be? If events around you controlrepparttar 139204 way you feel…then how could you feel so miserable when in REALITY, you’re laying in a hammock on a beautiful beach?

You work all day long, doingrepparttar 139104 right thing, caring for others, never breakingrepparttar 139105 law and generally being a pretty decent person.

Atrepparttar 139106 same time everything seems to go wrong, relationships just don’t gorepparttar 139107 way you had planned,repparttar 139108 boss has a nasty streak, petrol prices go up, you have an accident,repparttar 139109 landlord tells you he wants you to move for no real good reason, yes, it goes on & on!

How do you turn things around?

I’m sorry but I don’t haverepparttar 139110 answer too what isrepparttar 139111 meaning of life and why there a times when nothing seems to go right for you, however, I do believe that what we think directs our focus to achieving our thoughts, so negative thought, negative result, positive thought, positive result.

This beingrepparttar 139112 case, how do we then train our minds to think positive, when all around us appears to be a series of are negative events going on in our life?

To help with my own thinking, I take inspiration from those that I admire and find out more aboutrepparttar 139113 challenges that they have faced in their lives and how they overcame challenges and setbacks and went onto succeed.
