It’s human nature for us to assume the worst in everything. Let’s take a look:
I’ll never be on time.
Something will go wrong with my presentation at work.
My children will never get their act together.
I’ll never have enough money.
Let’s see what happens when we frame these statements in a more positive context:
I’ll be on time.
My presentation at work will go fine.
My children have their act together.
I have enough money.
These sounds much better, right?
The words we say on a continual basis play an instrumental role in shaping our worldview. Instead of speaking as though the deck is stacked against you, begin speaking as though everything is rigged in your favor.
Am I saying that it’s easy to transition from negative to positive speech? Heck no! Will your positive speech automatically fix everything? Of course not.
But if I have the option to speak positivity or negativity into a situation then I will always choose the former.
