6 Thoughts Toxic People Have That Are Ruining Your Life

Everyone has these thoughts from time to time, but it’s important to be aware of them when you do have them. In that awareness, you will regain your power over your thoughts. It’s as simple as that!

Here are 6 toxic thoughts you have that are ruining your life:

1. “It’s _____ fault”

By far the worst thought you can have – shifting the blame away from you, also shifts the responsibility away from you. This means you can never learn from the experience. Embrace them. Let them make you a better person.

2. “____ Isn’t Fair”

Saying “life isn’t fair” is toxic bullshit you have to keep out of your head. At what point has life seemed anywhere near fair? In this life, life isn’t fair and your chances aren’t always good. You need to accept this. And hey, look on the bright side, if you’re on your phone or computer reading this right now, you’re doing better than most people in the world.

3. “I’m not privileged”

Yes you are. That’s a dumb comment. Even if you are not privileged, what does wallowing in your self pity help accomplish? Nothing.

4. “Live like there’s no tomorrow”

Saying this is a poetic way for shirking responsibilities. Definitely live like there is a tomorrow. Save money, take care of people, make the world a better place.

5. “Once I Have The Money”

It’s very toxic to focus on what you don’t have. “I don’t have the money” reinforces the fact you don’t have the money in your subconscious.

It’s much healthier, and more productive, to focus on how to get there. Rephrase this to “How am I going to get the money”

Will you network, work hard, create a product, invent something, offer a service or what? Thinking about that instead of wishing for more money will serve you better.

6. “That’s Impossible”

Henry Ford said “Whether you think you can, or think you can’t, you’re right”

200 years ago WI-FI would have seemed completely impossible to people. But today it’s an everyday thing. The impossible, is very possible.

But not if you don’t believe it’s possible. Then you’re dooming yourself from the beginning to live in failure. Simply because you never attempted anything because it was impossible.
