Positivity creates an upward spiral. It builds resources, resilience, and opens new possibilities. It propels us into action and keeps us battling through obstacles. Self doubt isn’t as helpful. A negative mindset fogs our judgement like the dark cloud it is. It limits what we see possible and makes it hard to take the next step.
I’ve been making some big changes for the direction of my life lately. Change isn’t easy for me and negativity & self-doubt keep clouding my sunshine. They tell me all the reasons why I can’t or shouldn’t try something. They tell me my goals are unattainable and impossible for a person like me. After a few days of listening to them and having some wonderful quality time with my TV I felt like I was going nowhere, because frankly, I wasn’t.
It was time to choose change instead of doubt. Lasting change.
