Technique to Talk Away Negativity

I came across this and thought I'd share! :)

An Excerpt from Five Steps to Personal PowerBy Patrick Ryan

Even though there are twenty-four hours in a day, I don't believe that all time is created equal.

I am convinced that what happens to us during both the first and last ten minutes of each day is inordinately important.

An athlete would not dream of starting a physical activity without first stretching and warming up. Similarly, we need to psychologically stretch and warm up each morning before starting our day.

Read on for the psychological warm-up that I use every morning to...

Talk Away Negativity and Prepare Myself for a Positive, Constructive, and Happy Day

Set your alarm clock for five minutes before you actually need to get out of bed.

It is important to wake up gently, without feeling rushed.

Before you get out of bed, ask (and answer) these three questions:

· What do I have to be thankful for?

· What do I have to look forward to today?

· What can I do today to move me closer to my goals?

If you wake up in the morning and ask a question like Oh God, another day: why me, Lord? your subconscious mind will spend the rest of the day validating that question.

But the opposite is also possible.

If you ask a question like, "What do I have to look forward to today?" your powerful subconscious mind will make every attempt to validate that question.

So the choice is really yours: you can either program your mind with garbage or program it with empowering thoughts and questions.



  1. great post. keep spreading the light around!

  2. Great stuff! Always good to get a reminder! :)

  3. thanks for your comments on my blog! even though i am able to express my love without fear, sometimes i feel a well of emotion (sadness) when i give so much love away, especially in the case of a just ended relationship. that's when i need to re-center again--on LOVING my life and re-fill my cup. and that's what i'm gonna do this weekend.
    life is for loving. it should never stop...

    i ask myself the question: what do i love right now? it plants the seed of love to grow again.
