Are you aware of  how your negative thoughts steal your power? Your negative thoughts become negative words that become self-fulfilling prophecies.

A close family friend believes she has bad luck. She repeats it everyday, years later her life is a reflection of bad luck. It’s a surprise to her family and friends (they know that she’s capable of so much more). she isn’t surprised, she accepted it as her truth years ago.

The negative thinking tribes

Recently, I listened to a recording by Max Simon of Big Vision Business; it was Day 16 of his 21 Day Money Breakthrough Challenge, where he talked about this topic.  It inspired me to write this post.

Your negative words determine which tribe you belong to.

  “I ‘m a victim tribe” use these words

If it wasn’t for …

I can’t believe you …

I don’t deserve  …

Why did this happen …

It’s your (their) fault …

If it wasn’t for bad luck …

Nothing ever goes my way.

The following  words are used by “I ‘m carrying a heavy load tribe”

I should …

I need to …

I have to …

I’ll try …

Words from the ” I ‘m beating myself up tribe”

I’m really dumb.

Stupid me.

I ‘m such a …

How could I …

Then there’s the “fearful and anxious tribe”

I can’t …

I don’t have …

I’m stuck.

I’m scared.

What if …

It doesn’t matter what negative words you use, they all disempower you. They give you a way out from taking responsibility for your actions and results. They weaken your resolve and keep you from trusting yourself and your wisdom.

How to stop those negative words

Negative self-talk is a by-product of lack of confidence and unhealthy self-esteem.

Change begins with awareness. Become aware of your negative thoughts, break the loop, focus on your breathing, breath in and out three times, now disempower your negative thought with a positive one.

Example –

That was a stupid mistake. (negative)

I didn’t achieve my desired result, but I’ve learned from it. (positive)

Take back your power

Practice empowering thoughts. Empowering thoughts become empowering words. Empowering words lead to empowering action. Empowering action leads to remarkable results.

Give yourself permission to be empowered!
