How to Control Stinking Thinking

Here is a mental trick to help you be your best friend and coach. When you think of something you did poorly or a mistake you made, “tag it.”

For instance, you did something that you wish you didn’t do. Some people think, “I’m such an idiot. Why did I do that?!!” 

The problem with that “Stinking Thinking” is that the more you say to yourself, “I’m an idiot” the more you believe it.

So, from now on, add a “tag” to the Stinking Thinking.  

“That was a dumb thing to do, but I am always learning. I wish I didn’t do that, but now I know better and it will never happen again.
