The book Think and Grow Rich has always been about “the positive”. It teaches you how to maximize your potential, use and divert your energy to more productive tasks, how to create master mind groups – tasks that would help you succeed much faster. It is one of the best books when it comes to finding your own way to success – and one of its biggest lessons is how to overcome negative influence.
In light of this, I would like to talk about how to overcome negative influences and how you can avoid them too. Traits such as procrastination, doubt and low self-esteem slow down your success by a big margin. If you want to be successful in the fastest and most efficient way possible, you have to overcome negative influence.
To help you, here are some of the most common negative influences I have seen. In my years teaching people how to use the power of the mind and the subconscious, these are the most common negative influences that affect people and their path to success – hopefully you can avoid them with these tips:
Overcome Negative Influence With These Tips
Recognize that humans, by nature, are lazy, indifferent and susceptible to suggestions – whether you like to admit it or not, taking the easy way out can be an attractive path to success. However, this should not be the case for you. Overcome the temptation to practice procrastination and stop being lazy – this can be done by constantly practicing mental conditioning and exercises.
Recognize that negative influences can impact the subconscious mind, and steps need to be taken to protect your mind from negativity – Just like how positive actions and thoughts affect your mind, negativity can crawl and take form in your subconscious too. Because of this, protecting your mind against negativity should be your priority.
This can be done by having a strong mental fortitude that can repel negative thoughts away. This can be developed through positive affirmations and auto-suggestions
Seek out the company of people who are a positive influence and avoid the company of negative people – they say that birds of the same feather flock together, and for the most part this is true. You start to acquire the habits of the people who spend the most time with you – so seek out the company of positive people and avoid the company of negative ones.
If you spend most of your time in the company of people who are lazy, late and always complaining, you will start to acquire their habits too. Similarly, if you spend your time with people who are positive, hardworking and intelligent, you will be able to achieve success much faster. You just need to overcome negative influence around you first.
At the end of the day, you have to protect your subconscious against the influence of negative thoughts and habits if you are to succeed. For years, I have been teaching people how to use the power of the mind and the subconscious to achieve success. If this is something you would like to explore on a deeper level, then practicing self-hypnosis can help get you started in the right direction.
