It has been estimated that we think more than 50,000 to 70,000 thoughts every day, more than half of which are negative. Periodic mental house-cleaning to get rid of the negative `garbage’ that otherwise becomes ingrained.
Charging the atmosphere with positive thinking is what it’s all about. Stopping self-destructive thoughts is like stopping any other bad habit—it takes time and effort.
We control our feelings and thoughts both consciously and subconsciously. It is within us to be positive or negative, lively or unsociable. One of the most effective ways to come out on top is by the affirmation of all that is positive. Affirmations are positive statements about yourself that you repeat over and over until they’re programmed into your subconscious.
If we think unhappy thoughts, it will be impossible to feel either positive or be happy.
