Many people whose lives seem to have spiralled out of control have no idea how to climb out of the pit of despair they find themselves in. They may feel that everything seems to go wrong and their situations get worse and worse. They lose their job, their marriage falls apart, and they may even lose their home, their children and fall into depression, alcoholism or drug abuse. They may make a half-hearted attempt and then when they don’t get the results they want, they quit, and give up and resign themselves to a life of strife and unhappiness.
Don’t despair, there is hope. Turning your life around is possible. Let’s take a closer look at what you need to do to turn your life around…
1. Change the Negative Thoughts in Your Head
If you’re like most people, you may have a litany of negative tapes or thoughts that play over and over in your mind. Perhaps a teacher or a relative was overly critical and their comments stay stuck in your brain. Or you may have failed to overcome certain obstacles in your life and now see yourself as a failure…at everything.
Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Many people are plagued by insecurities or doubts. The secret is not to dwell on them. Instead, focus on your strengths and what you want to accomplish. Use empowering phrases such as I am safe, I am a winner, or I am changing my life for the better. Change the tapes in your mind to positive affirmations to help boost your success.
