    Negative Thinker

    • Negative Thinker

    “The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it.” If you have been to A Little Counseling before you would recognize this quote from the movie Peter Pan. This quote is especially appropriate with it being the start of the New Year. Each year, many people set resolutions and are unable to fulfill them because of their own faulty thinking patterns. Negative thinking is often the saboteur of New Year's resolutions. If you are a negative thinker and get in your own way of achieving goals, you are not alone.

    We ALL think negatively at times, after all nobody is perfect. The problem with negative thinking is that once you start it’s too easy to keep those unproductive thoughts going. You may even find that constant negative thinking can push others away. This is where your negative thoughts become a problem and start to interfere with your life, ability to succeed, or for the sake of this blog -- being able to fulfill your New Year's resolutions.

    At A Little Counseling, we help children and adults who want to change their negative thinking patterns. We help our clients retrain their negative thoughts, so they are better equipped to go after goals and handle life’s challenges. Personally, I like the idea of a resolution because it motivates people to do, or, not to do something for the better. While this is great idea, people should never give up if they derail in the process. It’s also important to remember that some negative thinking can be productive, the goal is to find a healthy balance. If your negative thoughts are interfering with your life, don’t sweat it -- we’ve all had our “Peter Pan” moments 😉 Each day is a fresh new start to work on yourself. After all, who said resolutions are just for January 1st?
