Time to get rid of negativity

How many people say no to you during any given day? How many people doubt your ability to do something?  How does that make you feel? When you count the number of people with no on their minds, did you count yourself? If not, please add one more number to that list.  I find it bad when other people do not believe in my abilities.   I find it even worse when the small voice in my head doesn’t even believe in my abilities.

Even working on something I have done many times before, I still hear the voice, worried of multiple things that could go wrong and all the various actions that could go awry.  Everyone has the voice, and everyone has a choice. We either listen to the voice and go nowhere, living in constant fear, or we put the voice in its place.

Here is what I suggest.   Find a trash can. Make sure it is empty before starting because many things will probably go into the trash can.  Next, think of all those items heard in your head, all negativism.

Now this will seem silly; however, this does work. Stand in front of the trash can.  Put your hands up to your head as though grabbing one of the negative thoughts. Please throw that thought into the trashcan.  Now repeat the process by pretending to grabbing the next thought and throwing it into the trash can.  Repeat this process until all negative thoughts are thrown into the trash can. Now take the trash can outside and empty it into the garbage. DO NOT pick up and bring any of the negative thoughts back into your home or business.

If any of the negative thoughts return, remind them that they were trashed and are not welcome back.  If they persist or new negativeness arise,  an alternate disposal method is available using the bathroom toilet.   Please DO NOT place any body parts in the toilet.  And , don’t forget to flush

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
