Talk about your blessings more than you talk about your burdens
If you find yourself in a situation where you’ve got no control over your thinking and negative thoughts are flooding into your mind – talk your way out of it with distraction! Tell yourself “I’m going to focus and concentrate on something else right now. I’m going to find something that makes me feel better. I am strong, I am powerful, I am in control of my mind, and I’m going to look for anything around me to change my focus. What’s the first thing you see?
