NEGATIVE THINKING AND THE
Most people occasionally experience the negativity associated
with overload. It isn't a serious problem unless you allow
yourself to slip into a state of chronic overload. When
you are in overload, you experience the same negative thoughts
found in the fatigued mind. Even if you have a positive
operating system running in your mind, you can still experience
serious negative thinking when you live in a state of chronic
overload. When you decrease the overload, the negativity
quickly dissipates, and you return to your normally positive
The negative thinking found
in the overloaded state is a warning that something is wrong.
You are in overload, and your mind is rebelling. The only
way it can make you stop and rest is to flood your mind with
negative thoughts. Every negative thought is a STOP SIGN.
Stop what you are doing and relieve the overload. You are
too busy, and your activities are too important, and your
problems are too serious, or so it seems to the overloaded mind.
You are losing perspective. The three great enemies of the
positive mind - busy, important, serious - are controlling you.
When these three culprits are in control, they create overload.
Even the most positive mind can only take so much, and then no
more. It goes into revolt and uses negative thoughts to
drive busy, important, and serious from your mind. Your
mind shouts its warning and forces you to deal with the overload
before you break down. Negative thinking is your friend if
you pay attention to what it's saying.
Overload is extremely common in western
societies. There aren't enough hours in a day to
accommodate a typical western lifestyle. Add to that a
mountain of shoulds, musts, and oughts, and you have everything
you need to slip into an overloaded state.
Although overload is uncomfortable, and
negative thoughts proliferate at an alarming rate, you still
have command and control over your mind. If you listen to
what your negative thoughts are saying, you quickly discover
your problem is overload rather than clinical depression.
Furthermore, when you relieve the overload, your positive state
of mind returns.
