Mental habits are difficult to control, but it can be done. Begin at once to substitute constructive thought for destructive thought. Form the habit of analyzing every thought.
From Matthews Adams, ” Learn to keep the door shut, keep out of your mind, out of your office, and out of your world, every element that seeks admittance with no definite helpful end in view.”
If your thought has been critical or destructive you are out of harmony with a mental attitude that will be conducive to constructive thought. This is why we must take the Mental Diet very seriously and control mental habits that do not serve us.
The Law of Substitution is what I have used to overcome destructive thought. We cannot think about 2 things at the same time. If a negative thought enters my mind, I use any fond memory or other pleasant thought to replace the negative thought. I use a positive, happy thought when destructive thought has tried to invade my thinking. I control my mental habits. Love and Harmony, Joan
