You Can't Afford the Luxury of a Negative Thought advises you to just become aware of your thoughts and to slowly train yourself to pause before reacting to a negative situation. You can acknowledge a negative experience, but they remind you that you have a choice as to how you REACT to that negative event. We can't go through life just saying "Everything is Great!" and ignoring problems and negative sitations. These things exist for a reason. Otherwise, we'd all live in a utopian society and not experience negativity in the first place. Our power lies in the choices we make every day about how we will respond to things that happen to us.
I generally think of myself as a positive person, but when I began to focus on the suggestions in this book, I realized how many times in a day I become fearful when I face a negative or uncertain situation. Using the process of this book was freeing for me because it reminded me that I do not have to do what I've always done just because it is familiar to me. While some situations are extremely difficult to postpone reacting to, if you can free up your energy from reacting to small irritations, you use less of the energy that your body needs for situations that are REALLY stressful.Read more ›
