Words are extremely powerful, whether they’re spoken aloud or in our minds and shouldn’t be underestimated. A single word, all on its own, can plant a seed within our minds and if left to grow overtime, particularly if it is fed and watered with more words and thoughts can grow and manifest into an actual reality.
This is all well and good when that initial, fledgling word is a positive one, but when it’s negative this can have harmful effects on your whole mindset. The problem with negative thoughts is that they can become self-fulfilling prophecies. We talk ourselves into believing that we're not good enough. And, as a result, these thoughts drag down our personal lives, our relationships, and our careers.
It might sound like a terrible cliché but in order to achieve success, a positive frame of mind is essential. Yes, it is impossible to be positive 100% of the time but the important thing is that positivity rather than negativity is the overriding emotion.
