The power of positivity and negativity:
Biologically our brain has a tendency to think negatively, this makes sense if you think back to early humans where there were threats everywhere.  It was a survival mechanism.
Today we don’t have those same threats but our brains remain stuck back in time.  I challenge everyone to choose positivity, as it can literally change your DNA and allow you to achieve things you never thought possible.
3 ways to help you retrain your brain more positively:
Stop saying stupid sh*t out loud. While you can’t stop negative thoughts from happening, you can choose not to speak them.  Words have power, negative words lead to negative habits which lead to a negative, unfulfilling destiny
Practice gratitude.  Think of it like a copy/paste in your brain.  When you think something negative and you feel yourself choosing pessimism, choose gratitude.  Think of 3 things you’re grateful for at that moment instead, speak them if you’re in a place where you can.  Do this for 30+ days and watch your mood, vigor, and life change.
Gratitude journaling.  I make a list with 2 columns.  Left side, everything I’m grateful for, right side my wishes/goals.  Pray over them.  Do this as often as you need.  I used to start every morning with this, have probably switched over time to weekly.  Watch yourself become more positive and watch yourself progress towards your goals incrementally.
God wants all of us to win and has a great destiny for us, but he also gives us the gift of free will and the ability to cancel that destiny.  Negativity is one way to slowly create habits that would cancel that destiny, so I challenge you all to choose positivity.  It isn’t easy, but it is a choice.
Text from a mentor yesterday that was timely:
Momentum is a powerful force. Often difficult to get started, but once in motion it creates a positive feedback loop that not only drives our physical quests, but allows the mind to expand the horizon of what’s possible.
If you’ve got the big MO right now, keep it going and think bigger. But if for some reason you find yourself in a rut and struggling get started or staying motivated, know that we all find ourselves there at times.
The solution is not to wallow, but to take  action. Take that first step, however small, and reinforce it through consistent and purposeful action towards your goals, dreams and aspirations.
The thing about consistent action is that it provides the foundation from which breakthrough performances are possible. And from those, the cycle begins again to reframe the outer boundaries of what we now believe is possible.
