According to a study by Tlex Institute, the average person has about 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts per day. Of those thousands of thoughts 80% are negative. The following day(s) 95% of the time those thoughts of negativity remain. The conclusion is that 97% OF OUR WORRIES ARE BASELESS AND RESULT FROM AN UNFOUNDED PESSIMISTIC PERCEPTION HINDERING OUR POTENTIALS.
So how do we have more positive thoughts you may ask? First is to be conscious about how the negative thoughts out weigh the positive. Be aware of your thoughts and when and what you speak to validate it is negative or positive and you will see results occur in hitting your goals.
