Negative Obsessive Thought and It’s Effects – Give It A Thought

“The Totality and Composition Of Your Thoughts Create Your Attitude, Feelings and Actions!!!”

How Does Negative Obsessive Thinking Begin?

Do you ever have genuine concerns about a situation, problem, friend or relative? You can be so concerned that you keep thinking about it. You start going over the history of the situation in your mind. What happened in the past. Who said what. Who did what.  Always keep in mind that, “Harboring a Grudge is Like Drinking Poison & Expecting the Other Person to Die”, you only hurt yourself.

You’re trying to understand each parties intentions and why they acted the way they did. This is all well and good up to a point, for it does help to explore situations from all points of view.

The Next Progression:

Before you realize it, you start to think “What If”. What if this happens or what if this is said or what if this occurs. Now your thoughts have progressed into imagination and worry. You are thinking about possibilities and not facts.  Remember that “Worry is the Misuse of Imagination, Oust Negative Thoughts from your Mind”

What Are The Effects Of Negative Obsessive Thinking?

The effects are many. Especially if the events that you are imagining are not pleasant. Once you are concentrating and worrying about “What If’s”, doubt sets in.  You can even develop fears and always keep in mind that, “Fear, is a Darkroom Where Negatives Develop”.  Through all this negativity, you become upset, irritable and a whole range of adverse emotions rush over you. Your blood pressure will rise, your muscles become tense and you are visibility upset.  “Men like nails, loose their usefulness when they loose direction and begin to bend”.

What you need to remember, is that these “What If” events are imaginary. They have not happened. They have only occurred in your mind and you have become upset over absolutely Nothing.

Keep in mind this statement, “Worrying Does Not Empty Tomorrow of Its Troubles, It Empties Today of Its Strength”.  Stay away from “What If” scenarios and deal only with the facts.

What Can You Do?

As soon as you realize that you are getting upset, stop obsessing. Take a time out. Take your thoughts away from this situation. Do Relaxation Exercises to calm down and clear your mind.  Keep in mind that, “The More You Complain and Obsess About Problems, The More Problems You Will Have”

It is good to go over past events and the facts of a situation. You can then better understand. But once you venture into “What If” scenarios, you are thinking about possible future events that may or may not occur. This type of thinking is a waste of your time and is an energy drain on you.

Turn Negative Obsessive Thinking Positive:

One technique that you can employ is “Positive Reinterpretation of Negative Thoughts. Rethink the thought using positive words and turn it positive.  Visualize the situation turning out for the best. See it becoming a win-win for all involved.   Use positive words to put the situation in a best light.  By doing this, you also create a Positive Attitude within yourself.  “Don’t Fear what could go Wrong, Happily Anticipate what will go Right”

Most importantly do not dwell on the negative. Use Positive Reinterpretation to prevent negative energy from overcoming you. Learn to, “Believe Something Wonderful is about to Happen”

There is a better way and it is really a simple process.   Learn the method of managing yourself, situations and your thoughts.  I want to introduce you to a fabulous system by my friend Dr. Joe Vitale, star of the hit movie “The Secret”.   The system is called “The Secret Mirror”

The Secret Mirror is a series of video interviews of one on one consultations between Dr. Joe and his students.  You can see how he uses the mirror technique to unlock each individuals subconscious mind for answers.

Our subconscious is full of information.  We need to learn how to access it.   Keep in mind the saying, “Know that the Answer Lies Within”.  It is inside of you.  Click this Link To Access It.

  1. Hi David
    Great article. I relate very well to everything you talk about. I was an excessive worrier for many years. The problem is, after awhile you believe worrying is what you are supposed to be doing. If you don’t worry you are not doing anything.
    After awhile your mind becomes a cesspool of untrue garbage.
    You don’t really realize how bad worry is until you break away from it.
    It’s like shedding a million pounds off of your shoulders.
    There is always a tendency to imagine the worse instead of all the good that could happen.
    Thank you David

    David, Thank You for commenting on my post. Worry does not fix anything, it only subtracts from the happiness of today. Sometimes the mind, in order to avoid disappointment sets our expectations low. This of course is known as a defeatist attitude. Break away from the cycle of defeat and worry and the emotional burden that you have been carrying will feel like shedding a million pounds.
