5 Ways To Overcome Negativity In Your Life

negative thinking

3. Remember Action Influences Thinking

One of my favorite verses I like to use when teaching people a new skill is Proverbs 16:3 which says that we should commit our actions to the Lord and then our thinking will follow.

I remember when I first started running for exercise I engaged in online conversations about how many miles a week a person had to run before he could call himself a runner.

A few weeks later it seemed like a silly question. If you run, you are a runner. It took some time for my mind to accept that doing the activity made me a participant of that activity.

The same can be true with trying to have a more positive outlook on life. If you will act in a positive way, you will begin to have a more positive attitude.

However, if you spiral into negative thinking and negative actions, then you can only expect that negative thinking will continue.

Proverbs 16:3 “Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.”
