Why positive thinking don’t work for many people
The right way to think positively
- Don’t challenge the beliefs but use logic to convince your mind: If you are already late then don’t keep telling yourself that you will arrive on time but instead remind yourself of the times you arrived late and nothing bad happened
- Understand the opposing beliefs and challenge them: While repeating the positive suggestion to yourself you will get direct replies from your subconscious mind like "No you can’t do that" or "you never did that before". Try to examine these negative replies and see if you can provide reassurance to your subconscious mind or opposing arguments .
- Remove the barriers one by one: One of the things you will discover while trying to convince your subconscious mind to believe in a positive thought is that as soon you manage to bypass an opposing belief you will hit another one. According to the psychology of convincing you need to bypass all opposing beliefs one by one in order to successfully convince the other party, so this is pretty normal!
