The Right Way to Change Your Thoughts

“As thoughts repeat, they cement themselves into beliefs. However, you can’t just convince yourself to repeat something that you feel deep-down is actually a lie.”

Inside the Episode

Do you ever feel like you’re spinning your wheels trying to change your negative thought patterns? Or do you ever feel frustrated by the suggestions of people who say to simply stop thinking a certain way? If so, you aren’t alone! When we try to change what we think, we sometimes do so in a way that either is shame-based or merely stuffs our thoughts down until they come back with a vengeance. In this episode, we are diving into the three important aspects of changing your thoughts the right way!

Key Takeaways

  • Negative thoughts often form the “glasses” through which we see the world. Sometimes we have worn them for so long that we start to believe that is how the world actually is.
  • It is harder for some people to change their thought patterns than others.
  • Our negative thought patterns were often formed to push us to pursue excellence and avoid messing up so we could experience love, feel like we belong, and feel safe.
  • You cannot simply force yourself to think the opposite without changing your beliefs.
  • You can start the process of changing your thoughts by first catching it. Notice when you are thinking negatively and call it out.
  • When you feel yourself thinking the worst and chasing the “what ifs,” shift your thinking to “even if.” Even if the worst happens, what is one grounding thought you know is true?
  • This is a slow process. Don’t try to jump from zero to one hundred right away. Instead, focus on taking small steps to shift your thoughts.
  • Too many people use gratitude to invalidate what they’re feeling, rather than using gratitude as a counterweight to their thoughts and feelings.
