Kills Dreams Slide 22: "If someone put poison in your water…
…would you drink it?" The obvious answer is “NO"! Chemical poisons that we can see, taste, touch, and smell can be fatal. Fortunately we are intelligent enough to know that we do not ingest poisonous substances…
…but what about our mind?
Repeatedly, people are poisoning their minds with negativity, and though we cannot see this negativity, it is just as fatal. Slide 23: Negativity starts with negative thoughts. Negativity is the poison that kills dreams!
And we need to stop it before it contaminates our lives. Slide 24: Negative thinking cripples a person's life to one degree or another. It robs people of the opportunity to live up to their full potential and of achieving their greatest desires and aims.
It condemns many to the rat race of mere survival— drudgery day after day—because they don't think they can achieve anything more. It brings depression and other mental disorders, and that in turn leads to physical disorders.
Negative thinking results in negative, destructive criticism‚ which results in destruction. Destruction is a strong word, but that is what it results in, because the potential that has been there for good, for greatness, or for success has been destroyed. So many people want to do great things. So many people dream of being a person who changes the world through some great work written, a great deed of courage performed‚ or great acts of compassion rendered to those in need.
But the negative feeling of "I just can't do it" robs people of that chance to make good on their dreams. (Excerpt by Maria Fontaine) Slide 25: If you find yourself thinking negative thoughts…
Strive to think positive, empowering, and supportive thoughts. How do we eliminate this poison?
Monitor the thoughts that you allow into your mind…
... every thought!
