Do you often feel upset, down, disappointed or frustrated?
Are you allowing your mind to think about problems, failure, obstacles or bad health?
Do you worry a lot?
If you do, it means that you are a victim of negative thinking. This is a form of victim mentality.
You suffer and feel bad, because you allow negative thoughts to occupy your mind. You are making yourself a victim of these thoughts and are allowing them to affect how you think, feel and act.
Is this necessary?
Do you really want to feel bad and create unhappy and irritating situations?
You surely do not want that!
Don’t Be a Victim of Negative Mentality
If you let negative thoughts invade into your mind, you are surrendering to them and giving them mastery over your life. You are letting these negative thoughts rule your life.
Just consider how much time and energy you spend on worries, fears or anxiety!

Remember, your feelings and thoughts, actions and reactions, are the mirror of your thoughts.
This means you have to be careful with what you think, because your thoughts program your subconscious mind, build habits, affect your behavior, and shape the situations you meet.
Choose your thoughts carefully! You can do so, if you pay close attention to your thoughts and refuse to have anything to do with negative thoughts.
You also need to remember that thinking on what you do not want will awaken unhappy and negative feelings and emotions.
If you continue focusing on your problems, you attract them and make them grow. You are attract circumstances that make you feel a victim.

To get rid of negativity and victim mentality, you need to focus on positivity.
Positive thinking is an acquired personality trait of great importance in everyone’s life.
