Have you noticed how some things can’t exist together? They are both exist, but they can’t inhabit the same space at the same time.

Take light and darkness for example.

The light may be dim, but there is still light. We can’t place all the light in one part of a room.

It is the same with our thoughts.

Napoleon Hill said, “Positive and negative emotions cannot occupy the mind at the same time. One or the other must dominate. It is your responsibility to make sure that positive emotions constitute the dominating influence of your mind.”

For most people this means some cognitive work.

For most people default is down and that means negative thoughts.

When we begin to think negative thoughts, we have to consciously replace them with positive thoughts.

It isn’t enough to get rid of the negative thoughts. Your brain cannot be empty. We call that comatose or death. Not good options.

We aren’t after a blank mind. How would that serve us well?

Positive thoughts are what will have us showing up differently because our view has changed.

It puts us in creation mode. Our prefrontal cortex is engaged and we move from victim to agent. We are more excited about the future.

If you need to power up your positivity, consider a membership to Live On Purpose Central where I host my course, Positivity Power Up and so much more.

See you on the inside.
