Specifically, people who are better at not letting negativity linger on, generally don’t allow self defeating thoughts to take root in their consciousness. On the flip side however, when we think irrationally about situations, they become a struggle to deal with and over time, they may re-occur, become more intensified and end up seriously messing with our emotional balance and happiness. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is an ‘evidence-based’ treatment methodology used by clinical psychologists around the world. The extent to which negative thoughts take root in our consciousness greatly impacts on our ability to live a balanced and happy life, yet often, we don’t recognise just how ‘faulty’ our thinking really is.
Sometimes we might be aware that our thinking is contributing to our problems, but perhaps we don’t know just how much. In Change Your Thinking, Edelman shows you how to interrupt and challenge your self defeating thoughts and habitual negative responses. Change Your Thinking presents CBT in a way that’s super accessible for anyone, even those who haven’t been exposed to it before.
I think what I like best about Change Your Thinking is that you can pick it up and put it down as the urge takes you.
Similarly, you might be facing an ongoing challenge with a low mood and so read a number of sections including the one specifically on depression as a more comprehensive look at how CBT can help you.
On a deeper level, like all therapies, CBT doesn’t offer a ‘magic bullet’ and really requires that you put the time and effort into monitoring your thoughts and doing a little self maintenance whenever you notice your thoughts are bringing you down. Change Your Thinking is a brilliant reference guide for the general reader to apply the principles of CBT in their own lives.

In the midst of the hectic, sometimes aggressive, pace of modern life, seeing things differently can change outcomes, reduce stress and increase well-being. Recent research has shown that learning to choose how we view circumstances leads to a greater sense of control, reduced stress, increased longevity and life satisfaction. Carrie, a senior leader in a highly competitive organization, made the conscious choice to view her colleagues as partners in her success instead of as competitors. Recent research by Ann Betz, a faculty member of the Coaches Training Institute, in California, showed that when people feel they are equal participants in a mutually constructive relationship, they are more creative, open and resilient. Additional research reveals that the human brain has a mirror neuron system, which is able to pick up the brain activity of another person’s emotions by simply being in their presence.
By seeing things through a positive lens, you create your own reality and affect the well-being of others – like the barista who drew a heart in my latte foam last week.
Look for moments of genuine connection and pay it forward with thoughtful acts of love: Smile, hold the door.
Exercise to Keep your Thoughts PositiveFirst, take time to listen to some great instrumental music, really concentrating on the music itself. If you think that this feels very much like practicing positive affirmations, you are correct.

In order to start thinking differently and to stop thinking as you used to you have to place yourself into a different place than you were before.
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. Our goal is to help you by delivering amazing quotes to bring inspiration, personal growth, love and happiness to your everyday life. These people draw rational conclusions about events that occur (rational being a thought that is aligned with our desire for happiness and survival) and hence, the negativity of the moment doesn’t impact on the quality of our lives over the long term.
This is where Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) can be a big help, explains author of Change Your Thinking, Sarah Edelman, as it aims to address the underlying thought patterns of your negative emotions and gently transform them into beliefs that will work for you, rather than against you.
Change Your Mind helps you become more aware of how your thougths could be making your life far more difficult and distressing than it needs to be. We know that worrying about something or getting angry might not solve our problems and in fact, usually only makes it seem worse, yet we often lack strategies f0r dealing with runaway negativity. By recognising your negative perceptions as they occur and then ‘disputing’ these in a rational manner, you will feel more empowered and experience a greater sense of control and security. The plain English, jagon-free language Edelman employs helps you understand the concepts presented, just as the very ‘real world’ examples and practical exercises help you apply the theory. However, you don’t have to read chapter upon chapter of introductory material for the exercises to work for you (personally, I just started at the chapter that I had the most interest in).
CBT is not ‘a pill to pop’- it takes applied, ongoing effort, a willingness to face your demons and a desire to really put the work in to help yourself. Even if you don’t have a pressing issue right now, you’ll find it highly interesting if you’re into psychology or have a passion for trying to understanding why people do what they do.
We are taught you must blame your father, your sisters, your brothers, the school, the teachers – but never blame yourself. I have noticed even people who claim everything is predestined, and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road. We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.
You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment. A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.
Sometimes the slightest things change the directions of our lives, the merest breath of a circumstance, a random moment that connects like a meteorite striking the earth.
Operating from this place of possibility opened her up to creating powerful alliances and she started getting support from colleagues who intuitively sensed that she had changed her outlook. Conversely, if they perceive they are being categorized as “less-than,” there’s a sustained rise in cortisol – the stress hormone.
Because we’re influenced by the emotions of others, it’s important to surround ourselves with people who value and inspire us.

Rather than just rote repetition, however, I am asking that you take the time to really sense the high frequency of the statements that you have created. If you want to think more positively for example, chances are you may have to prevent yourself from spending time around things that produce negative energy and vibes, including some of your friends, some of the television shows you watch, and so on. It is true that a lot of us believe that we are somehow confined to the walls that society puts around us, in fear of being thought of as weird or different and outcast from society. One thing that is critical to becoming a success in life is learning how to separate ourselves from becoming attached to our fears.
Many studies have been conducted on the effectiveness of CBT in treating a range of conditions from mood (depression, anxiety) to personality, eating and psychotic disorders and have found that CBT can be as, if not more effective than medication. Well as far as the self-help section of Borders goes, at (AUD) $46.99, Change Your Thinking is definitely up there at the more pricey end of the salvation scale. CBT won’t suit someone looking for an easy way out, however the benefits you’ll reap in your life from tackling the root cause of your problems, will far outweigh the effort and time you invest. It will also no doubt increase your effectiveness if you want to offer assistance to those who are struggling with any of the challenges outlined above. He got good grades ,got an amazing job,climbed up the corporate ladder and bought a big house but something was still missing – FREEDOM. Have you ever had to take a step back and ask yourself who the person is that you have become? Thankfully, Change Your Thinking spares you weighty scientific explanations of what CBT is, and instead gives you an overview of how it differs from ‘positive thinking’, a basic grounding in the premise of the therapy and then gets straight into the nitty gritty of how you can use it to develop healthier psychological responses to events that otherwise might send you into a tailspin. However, you can get it heaps cheaper from Amazon (there’s a direct link below), which would have been my modus operandi had I done a little research.
Similarly, if you do have a problem at present, it provides the tools to help direct you in creating a more balanced, happier life.
He felt so limited by his job and lifestyle so he left it all behind in order to GO FOR IT and create the lifestyle he really wanted. Now close your eyes and repeat these statements and sense the frequency of the statement itself.
As you continue to watch your personal self-talk and make a conscious effort to raise your frequency when you get up each morning, you will find yourself attracting good things into your life. The way that we choose to think on a regular basis will eventually determine the things that we speak into fruition, which will eventually also effect our actions as well.
Some of us have and some of us are even on the road to becoming someone that we know we truly arent at our hearts level. Real champions become champions by developing a winner's mindset and using it to get to the places they desire to be. We can control the things that we put into our heads by studying and being around the things that we want to produce out of our minds.
You will find this synergy working for you rather than against you when you consciously start the practice of positive thinking.I hope you have enjoyed this article.
Raising your frequency in this way will raise the frequency of your entire mind, body and spirit.
