Wow...we all battle this every single day, don't we?
Believe me, in case you think I don't - you are WRONG!
In case you think Jim Rohn doesn't - you are WRONG!
In case you think ________________(put your own idealistic name here) - you are WRONG!
However, what happens is - some of us have learned how to resist it better than others! And you, my friend, are one that is attempting to do just that!
How do I know? Well, honestly, if you are reading this blog, you are attempting to fill your mind with positive thoughts and messages. THIS IS A KEY COMPONENT of resisting negativity!
In chapter 15 of Napoleon Hill's classic, "Think & Grow Rich", following his discussion of the "Six Ghosts of Fear" he goes on to what the calls, "The Seventh Basic Evil" at which point he begins to discuss NEGATIVITY.
He uses the analogy of negativity being the fertile soil in which all of these fears get their "nutrition" and their ability to grow.
So, bottom line - resist negativity and we also resist these fears that have been discussed.
Don't miss this point - IT IS A CONTINUAL BATTLE!
It never stops, but don't let that discourage you. Let it, instead, inspire you to continue to make a defined effort to resist this negativity.
Yes, for the most part, it is YOUR choice as to what you allow in your head and in your mind! Yes, there are things that are said to us or around us that we hear and that automatically then enters our minds - but then it imperative that we FLUSH that negative away as soon as possible!
You already know from our study that the prevailing thoughts in our minds become the prevailing influences in our subconscious and our subconscious will determine our outlook each and every day.
Do you see how important this is?
We will continue this part of the discussion in Thursday's podcast and then begin to wrap up the discussion on this book by the end of next week.
PAY CLOSE ATTENTION! I will be trying to bring all of this together for you in these next few podcasts so that you may have a "plan of attack". However, it will still be UP TO YOU to put these things into practice.
You've already had a LOT of "plans of attack" presented for you through this outstanding book - have you used them? If not, why would you think you will use what I say in the last few discussions of this great book?
It's time to "get real" and to "be honest" with ourselves. If you want to control these fears and resist negativity - YOU MUST ACT. No one else can do it for you. Yes, I (and others) can encourage you and help give you information to aid in this process - but no one can do it for you.
Here's the key - YES, YOU CAN DO IT!
And I will be here to help in any way that I can - feel free to contact me at anytime (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Until next time, always remember to...
"Make it an AWESOME Day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
