Negativity doesn’t work – Literally – Our subconcious brain can’t handle it
The other thing about negativity is that our brains can’t process negative words according to the latest studies. So when we hear phrase like “don’t smoke” or “don’t touch that,” our subconscious skips over these negative words and simply hears “smoke” or “touch that.” Our conscious mind can obviously process these words, but it’s the subconscious that makes a lot of our decisions without us realizing.
I'm not a huge fan of the "every day in every way..." mantra.
On the other hand, I do want to feel great -- all the time, if possible.
When you think positively: "it's a fantastic day, and I'm so grateful for everything I have and the fantastic people in my life"...
You immediately feel better, no matter how many stresses you have. You can change your mood, and the mood of everyone around you, when you indulge in happy thoughts.
Think positive. Because no matter how dire your circumstances, thinking a couple of positive thoughts will start to turn those circumstances around.
