The Courageous Success Energiser
In psychology today in 2012 Andrew Newburg shared the following fascinating finding;
Studies have found that the more we dwell on negative words the more we can actually damage key structures that regulate our memory, feelings and emotions.
Note to self, as I focus on myself negatively and give my power away to others and my environment I am actually being abnormal!!
Neuroimage (2002) found that as we vocalise our negativity, or even as we frown to say “NO”, stress chemicals are also released in the listener’s brain. Negativity spoken with anger does even more damage, sending alarm signals through the brain, interfering with decision making centres in the frontal lobe, increasing a person’s propensity to act irrationally.
Note to self, as I speak or act negatively I can promote irrationality in others – making them abnormal too!!
So – not only can my voicing negativity affect me – it also affects others.
Note to self, as I go about my daily life I will harness the brain power of choosing positivity: from now on I will choose chocolate, say yes, be positive: brain power!
Easy decision – massive impact.
