The Power of Your Thoughts

If you’re feeling depressed, stop for 5 seconds to ask yourself, “What have I been thinking about for the last few minutes?” I can almost guarantee that you’ve been focusing on something that is not particularly uplifting.

This can take the form of worry (imaging fearful future events), ruminating on a past event, or engaging in a pessimistic view of your life in general.

This type of thinking is destructive and diminishes your chances of happiness.

Step One is to catch these thoughts before they develop a life of their own! You have the power. It’s an inside job.
