The Dangerous Power of Negative Thinking

Negative thinking is a self-fulfilling prophecy made more dangerous by the fact that we may not realize we are engaging in it. Walter E. Jacobson, M.D. discusses this trap in an article for the Huffington Post. He says we must become more self-conscious of the thoughts that enter our heads and develop sensitivity to when we are becoming too negative. After all, negativity is a defense mechanism, and while it might make us feel safer to hide behind walls of reticence or hostility, it will only ever be a half-measure. We must take that extra step—to embrace and accept setbacks. Never succumb to fear and negativity when a path to better days still exists for those brave enough to pursue it.
