Move On From The Negatives In Life
We have all heard it many times before. If you focus on the positive in life, then positivity will find you. If you focus on the negatives in life, then negativity will find you… and you might be screwed. But why are we spending any amount of time focusing on the negatives? Ask yourself when negative thinking has ever brought a positive outcome. Plain and simple, it hasn’t. If you want to make the most of life, if you want to be happy, and if you want to be successful, then you need to learn to move on from the negatives in life.
Man, I have had more than my fair share of bad days. In fact, today was one of those days. After purchasing a new car a few days ago, I let negativity and doubt control my mind, and I let my mind control my actions. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t break free of the stress. What if I lost my job? What if I had no money? All of the things that I am against, I was thinking.
It is during these times that it is important to move on from the negatives. Going back and negatively thinking about the past or doubting yourself isn’t going to do any good. The only thing that it will do is take away time and energy from your present. I am not going to sit here and tell you to just breathe. Trust me, I know that is the last thing that you want to hear when your mind is consumed with negative thoughts.
So to help you to move on from the negatives in your life, here are some things that I focus on that help me in my life to move on from the negatives.
You might have lost the battle, but you will not lose the war. Seriously, if today just isn’t your day, start fresh tomorrow. That is the beauty of life. No matter what the previous day held, we get a new opportunity to better ourselves, to create a new outcome, and to live life how we want to live it.
The bad day has come and gone. Carrying any emotions over to the next day will only negatively impact that day. Learn to let go, learn to focus on a new start, and learn to make the most of your opportunities. Tomorrow is a new day. Make it your day!
- I have the ability to overcome anything
God will never give me anything that He knows I can’t handle. I am strong, I am a warrior, and more importantly, I believe in myself. As long as I continue to believe in myself and believe in what I stand for, then there is no outcome that I can’t overcome.
- I have overcome more difficult things in the past
When you are facing challenges in life, look back and recognize all that you have overcome. You have gotten this far through hard work and dedication. What is preventing you from going further in life.
Recognizing my past helps me to see light in the current darkness. There are times where the stress seems unbearable. There are times where I have overcome greater amount of stress in my life. Once I recognize on all that I have overcome, the present seems doable.
- My life is pretty damn awesome
A few days ago, I let fear control my thoughts. I let fear control an event that it supposed to be fun. Maybe I will lose my job, or maybe I blow my savings account. Money isn’t everything. What matters more to me is the fact that I get to wake up and embrace a new day, be around my family that loves me for who I am, and the fact that I have every opportunity to pursue my dreams.
Once we start focusing on the positive things in life, life itself becomes more enjoyable. Focus on what you have instead of what you don’t have. Focus on the basic blessings that you have like food, clean water, shelter, and the fact that you have every opportunity to be who you want to be in life.
- It’s either move on, or give up
Well, like I said earlier, we have come this far in life. There is no going backwards from here. We can either move forward with everything that we have, or give up. To me, I have never loved life more, and I have never had more motivation to chase my dreams. Giving up is not an option, nor is it anything that I am even going to think about. That means that it’s time to move on and keep pushing forward.
The point is that we are all going to face challenges in life. No matter who you are, no matter what you do or don’t have, imperfections will find you. Don’t let fear control you. Instead, focus on the positives and move on from the negatives. You are bigger, better, and stronger than any negative thought or outcome. Continue to believe in yourself, and always follow your dreams.
