The Danger Of Negative Thinking
By Kevin Quigley
As you have shown an interest in starting a business of your own it would be safe to assume that you want to change your life. You want more money - more control over your life - more respect. But just as we each have a dream, we also have a reality.
Unfortunately for most people, the reality bears no similarity whatsoever to the dream. In many cases, the dream exists as an escape from the reality.
Think now of YOUR reality - the life you lead every day. What do you do? How do you feel as you awake? Do you have any enthusiasm for your way of life? Do you enjoy your work, or are you on welfare? Then ask yourself the important question: Do you resent having to live this way?
If you answer 'yes' to that question, then you are in danger of succumbing to the most destructive human emotion - Hate.
If you hate the life you live, the people you deal with, the actions you are forced to take, then you will find yourself rapidly rushing toward disaster. When you hate, you may as well be drunk! You no longer function in a creative manner. Your mind is geared toward destruction. Instead of aiming to create a new life for yourself and those you love, you will become obsessed with the act of revenge.
The more that you hate the people and situations around you, the more your mind becomes poisoned with the purpose of getting even. Logical thought becomes impossible and hate then becomes a substitute for action. You must learn NOW, to resist the urge to hate. It achieves nothing constructive and it will destroy both you and your dreams of success. As Ghandi said..."An eye for an eye just makes the whole world go blind."
Take a good look at your way of life. Do you always have to make do with what you have got, because you can't afford a replacement? Are you always having to put off paying bills until next week? Have you never enough money to enjoy yourself? Are you unhappy with the area in which you live?
You may find that you are regularly having to write a check on Monday and hope that you will be able to cover it by Thursday. Or you may just be sick of the daily grind of early mornings, or the regular nightshift. If most of these apply to you, the you probably hate living this way. So now make a POSITIVE effort to achieve success. Only through positive endevour and thought will you achieve your goal.
Although your current way of life is hard, think not how to get rid of it, but how to REPLACE it with a better way of life. Think SUCCESS - not revenge. Assess what you resent about your life now.
You may even resent the things that you would normally enjoy, were your circumstances different. Occassions like Christmas, birthdays, and Easter can can be trying times when you have no money to spend. Children don't understand the restrictions of a tight budget, and it can cause great distress to a parent who is unable to give his child the gift, or day out, that they would like. Now imagine the difference in these circumstances when you have achieved success and you are wealthy.
There is no harm in imagining the difference your wealth will make to your lifestyle - but approach it lightheartedly.
Say to yourself: I will work to be a success so that I can tell my boss where to stick his job! And so I can see the look on the Bank managers face when I tell him not to bother offering me overdraft facilities anymore! This attitude is positive, but don't hate the way things are, or the people it involves. That would only make things worse. You will have plenty of time to reflect on your past when you are wealthy!
These things that make you miserable and depressed will be all behind you when you put the secrets of success to work: http://heh.pl/&cX Imagine life without all these trying times. You will be able to enjoy Christmas, and give your kids what they want. That squillion function, water-resistant, solar- powered gizmo (that they ALWAYS wanted) will be a drop in the ocean to you!
Many of the people who buy books on starting a business actually don't bother starting up. They can't imagine themselves ever running their own business and earning Unlimited amounts of money. They never see things how they CAN be - only how they are. Don't make this mistake! KNOW what you want, KNOW how to get it, SEE how it WILL be, and then GO FOR IT!!
