Adjusting Your Attitude

How you think can have a profound effect on your emotional and physical well-being. Each time you think a negative thought about yourself, your body reacts as if it were in the throes of a tension-filled situation. If you see good things about yourself, you are more likely to feel good; the reverse is also true. Eliminate words such as "always," "never," "should," and "must." These are telltale marks of self-defeating thoughts.

Do you ever have self-defeating thoughts? How do you deal with it?

I am a determined individual.  If I want something, I do it.  I know that I am a strong person and I can do anything I set my mind to.  The thing I have a hard time with is understanding why everyone isn't the same.

I struggle with this. Distraction helps.

Yes, but to be fair, if we rely on ourselves for strength, we will eventually fail. I draw my strength from Christ. It takes all the pressure off me.
