“Negative thinking will never produce positive results. Change your thinking and you’ll change your life.”
This quote probably says it all and it somehow relates to the law of attraction that what we think is what we attract. And what we attract is what we’ll get.
Life is short for negativity. Just thinking about our worries is already a waste of time. But, let’s face it. There are days when things don’t happen in our favor. People disappoint us, we question ourselves as a person, and we get insecure. Then all the negativity starts to come in like an unstoppable flowing river.
But the good news is that we can control our negative thoughts. Darius Foroux, author of Win Your Inner Battles, explained in this infographic made with Visme exactly how we can fight the enemy (yes, negativity, that’s you!) and continue having a positive outlook in life!
Running For My Life - from zero to ultramarathoner
The spooky thing about depression is that it sneaks in. There aren’t really trumpets and loud voices announcing: “Hail, hail, this is depression entering the room, all rise!” Nope. It’s slow, silent, creepy. It doesn’t even look like depression. It starts with small isolation thoughts like: “Maybe I shouldn’t get out today, I just don’t feel like going out”. And then it does the same next day. And then the day after that and so on. And then it starts to whisper louder and louder in your ears: “Why would you go outside, you loser? Didn’t have enough yet? Want more people to make fun of how much of a big, fat loser you are?”
And then you start to breath in guilt and shame, instead of air. Every breathe you take is putting more dark thoughts into your body.
Until you get stuck. You can’t move anymore. At all.
