Why Does Positive Thinking Fail?
Why Does Positive Thinking Fail ?
At some time or other most of us have tried positive thinking or affirmations to make us feel better, even if we don’t know that’s what we’re doing when we try to talk ourselves into doing something. Most of us have failed. Why?
Apparently, this is where the universal 94% x 6% rule comes in. Statistically only 6% of people who ‘do’ positive thinking or positive affirmations succeed. That means that 94% of us will fail at positive thinking. Why?
Our ‘unconscious mind’ contains a vast database of hardwired informational and emotional memory and we act out of that memory mostly unconsciously.
As well as the memory of such necessities as going to the bathroom, walking, talking and eating, the memories of the ‘negative thoughts and feelings’ you have thought throughout your life, are also programmed in our mind.
Things like; “I’m not good enough”. “Nobody loves me”. “There must be something wrong with me”. “I am fat” . “I hate myself”. “I am a failure”. “I am stupid”.
At some time or another, most of us have secretly had these kinds of thoughts. On their own these thoughts are not the truth, but add the overwhelming negative feelings that accompany these thoughts – and you started creating a ‘negative belief’ system.
Plagued with self-doubt, anger or heartbreak in those moments, we may have responded with anxiety, depression, unhealthy habits like overeating/under eating, self-harm, having a few drinks or taking drugs to anesthetize ourselves. For many of us, this becomes an unending cycle in which our ‘negative beliefs’ become more ingrained and completely automatic.
The brain is in fact a ‘belief making machine’.
Belief systems are powerful, pervasive and enduring. Once beliefs are formed, the mind begins to look for and find evidence in support of those beliefs, which adds an emotional boost of further confidence in the beliefs and thereby accelerates the process of validating them.
When something happens to validate one of our beliefs, like losing our job, our mind pipes up with “You see I was right – I am a failure!”. And round and round this process goes in a negative feedback loop. A treadmill to depression, addictions and low self-esteem.
You cannot remove hard-wired negative beliefs by saying the opposite or wishful thinking. That’s like putting a band-aid on a broken leg. You need to get rid of the belief itself once that’s gone you no longer need to affirm it. It’s that simple.
