Your Thinking can Sabotage your Behaviors, Relationships and Success

-->

‘Did You Know’ your thinking can sabotage your behaviors, relationships, success, and the outcome of your life?

Most people base their decisions on their feelings and/or their thoughts.  When their feelings and thoughts are distorted, they cope and reason with life based on irrational thinking, such as the following:

  • Black or white thinking; extremes in thinking; all-or-nothing thinking
  • Over generalizing
  • Lack of gratitude; discounting the positive things that do happen
  • Allowing one negative event to negatively effect other events of the day
  • Jumping to conclusions
  • Exaggerating
  • Emotional reasoning instead of thinking logically
  • Imperative, bossy, controlling thinking
  • Labeling
  • Taking responsibility for events outside of your control
  • Taking information out of context
  • Twisting information
  • Misinterpreting what others say
  • Minimizing
  • Seeing only what you want to see
  • Drawing conclusions without the evidence for it
  • Thinking that someone can magically know or read your mind
  • Thinking that others have ulterior motives
  • Suspicious, paranoid thinking
  • Assuming that others know what you want or need without communicating those needs or wants
  • Having unreasonable expectations of yourself or others
