Recognising Influences

Have you ever been trouble by negative thoughts?



Imagine you’re complimented over a presentation or appreciated for your work, would you lose your sleep thinking about it? Nope.​​


However, you will lose your sleep when someone criticise or insult you.


Why do you think we give so much power to negative thoughts?


Turns out, the reason we gravitate towards negativity instead of positivity is because of the influences in our life.


Positive influences can dramatically increase your chances for happiness.


Negative influences will do just the opposite. They drain you out of your energy and pull you down in every area.


If you’re ready to make changes to your life, reduce stress and start afresh, one of the first step I recommend is to recognise these influences in your life.


Because often we don’t even realise how strongly we are affected by them. Also because generally influences develop over an extended period of time.


So the best way to begin is by increasing your awareness of these influences, which is why it’s a good idea to write them down.


Take a sheet of paper and divide it into two columns with headings “Positive Influences” and “Negative Influences”.
