No matter what inspiration message we feed into our minds, if we accept rival negative thoughts then we will not get very far. For every thought that undermines our confidence we need to accept many good thoughts that wash it away.

The first thing is to accept we do have negative thoughts and that they do undermine what we can achieve. This is not as easy as it may seem. Most of us do not recognize the difference between a positive thought and an inspiration message let alone understand the impact they have on our lives. I can list many people in my acquaintance who spout destructive words every day and then cannot understand why they achieve nothing in their lives.

One man who understood the effects of bad thoughts on our lives was James Allen. He wrote in his book ‘As A Man Thinketh,’ “Good thoughts and actions can never produce bad results; bad thoughts and actions can never produce good results. This is but saying that nothing can come from corn but corn, nothing from nettles but nettles. Men understand this law in the natural world, and work with it; but few understand it in the mental and moral world (though its operation there is just as simple and undeviating), and they, therefore, do not co-operate with it.”

Our first action is to understand when we have a negative thought. This is any thought that is not an inspiration message and generally takes the form of something like ‘you can’t do that’ or ‘you usually mess that up’ or ‘you are not as good as him.’ We need to pay attention to the way we think or speak about ourselves.

That is not to say we need to tell everyone that we are the greatest person on the planet. I suspect you will soon be unpopular if you did that! No, it is important to give yourself an inspiration message quietly and persistently. Apart from anything else, if others know you are telling yourself you are the best, they will soon find ways to undermine that inspiration message.

There is no such thing as neutral thoughts. If you catch yourself saying something like ‘you are so clumsy’ or ‘you are so stupid,’ you must replace it with an inspiration message like ‘that is very unlike me’ or ‘I am very capable of doing better.’ It seems Nature abhors a vacuum and, if you leave space in your mind, it will quickly fill with a thought, usually negative.

It has been suggested to me that you should always have a set phrase to use when you have a negative thought. One author suggested saying ‘I cancel that’ and immediately substitute an inspiration message but I have used another technique at times: I pretend to take the words from my mouth and throw them away. Another similar suggestion I have heard is to write the negative thought on a piece of paper and physically throw it in the waste bin. Bold gestures like that emphasize the destruction of the useless thought or words.

Then instantly replace the negative statement with a good inspiration message.

Whatever you do, it is important to tell yourself that you are very capable and special and give yourself an inspiration message to back that up.

Why? Because there is no doubt that you are an important and significant individual and capable of great things.

I just want you to believe it.
