A negative mindset is one of the most dangerous things someone can have. Constant negative thoughts do not allow an individual to build confidence, resiliency, and positive self-esteem. The brain is the most powerful tool that we have, therefore, holding the power of turning thought into reality. The negative mindset will distract from realism and it is often directly connected with the perfectionist mentality.
How can you challenge a negative mindset?
When an individual has a negative mindset, I always urge them to take a step back and analyze the thoughts. I urge my clients to ask “What evidence do I have to support this thought ?” , ” Is this thought realistic or am I being reactive? ” These are two very important questions when challenging negative thought.
