If you are having negative thoughts about a future event that is important what should you do?
There are three main steps - but these can also be used in conjunction with the previous advice.
Preparation for the event
When an important event is due, practice changing your thoughts from the usual negative to positive. For example:
“I can’t cope with this.” changed to “I can do this. It won’t last long.”
“I won’t go. Better to miss out.” changed to “I will go and know that I will do well.”
“I just know something will go wrong.” changed to “Nothing will go wrong and if it does, I’ll cope.”
The change into positive thinking has to be worked at. But the benefits received from the first time you change a black thought into a light one opens up a new world for you as a person. Your life will become renewed and much more successful - all you have to do is challenge those negative thoughts and banish them forever.
And give yourself a huge pat on the back, whether you fully succeed or only partially.
