"You are the single biggest influence in your life" - Oprah Winfrey
Even the most self-aware of us can fall into a slump without realising...... then BANG we've spent the last few days focused on all of the negative things in our life (I know I have).
What's the important thing to realise in this situation?
Well..... A helpful thing to realise is that these are negative thought patterns are unhealthy and although we can't help the thoughts that enter into our heads sometimes we can take an active decision to choose what to focus our attention on...... and in turn this will help change our negative mindset into a more healthy and positive one.
So how do we do this?
Well some of us will want to talk to others about it. Some of us might do something physical like go for a walk or hit the gym...... What happens for me usually is that I stumble on some social media post that reminds me of exactly what I need to hear at the time and like a good kick up the arse it gets me focused again.
I'd like to share with you now a few of those things to remember that I tell myself on those days when I think it's just not going my way.......
