Are you thinking “failure” thoughts, or “negative” thoughts, and you don’t even realize it?
Many people would say they are not negative, and, most times, they would be right. After all, they always seem to be happy . . .
Unfortunately, many happy people battle depressing or failure thoughts when they are alone. They don’t like to think about those times, though.
They gloss over those private times. After all, those times don’t mean anything. Especially since they are happy for the world to see, so what’s the problem?
The problem is, those unhappy times need to be dealt with. They need to be looked at and taken care of before they turn into something they can’t handle.
Unfortunately, people usually don’t want to. They like being happy and they don’t want to think about times when they aren’t. They don’t want to think about those times, because if they did, they would bring their failures out into the open.
See, if a person is happy for the world to see, and actually has times when they aren’t, then some people feel like they are a phony, a failure. No way will they let the world see this side of them.
However, that’s exactly why they need to think about it, to do something about it, so they can get on with their lives. They don’t need to feel like a phony or a failure.
One way to handle that way of thinking is instead of thinking about what you can’t do, can’t have, can’t be (which are failure thoughts) do this:
Every night before you go to sleep, ask this question: “What can I accomplish tomorrow if I have the faith to tap my vast potential?” Whenever you think a failure thought coming in, ask that question.
Watch your “failure” thoughts disappear. Watch your life turn around. Watch it be OK to not smile all the time so that when you aren’t smiling, you don’t feel like a failure.
