From an article by Peggy McColl
"If someone put poison
in your water…
…would you drink it?"
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.
Negativity is the poison
that kills dreams!
And we need to stop it before
it contaminates our lives.
Negativity starts with negative thoughts.
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
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)

be positive about!
If you lack self-esteem, it
would help you to look at
things this way:
Jesus died for you.
You are so valuable in His sight, and His
Father's sight, that it was worth His while to
come to Earth and die for you. That should
raise your self-esteem, and self-value!
Part of the process to shift your thought energy from
negative to positive is to be grateful for the gifts in your
life and to focus on what is great in every situation.
