Why read Monday Morning Power?

You will find a consistency and a focus in all of my content that can change your attitude which can fuel a positive change in your life, if you want it to. If you are happy with your attitude and your life and see no reason for changing, then you either already have a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude), or you are a victim and want to hold onto your misery. These postings will then serve to fortify the person with PMA, or, hopefully, convince the "victim" that there is a better way. This site will contain essays, poems, stories, humor and links, all with the same goal: The pursuit, capture, care and feeding of a Positive Mental Attitude. I have had readers tell me that they have spent hours on my site and feel great about themselves both during and after. I log onto my own site frequently to help fuel my attitude; I hope you will as well.

Turning Negative Self Talk into Positive Self Talk

This can be viewed as a follow-on to my "Keeping Negative Energy at Bay" post. The following is a chart that takes commonly used negative words and phrases and gives you the Positive words and phrases that you should replace them with. This chart is by no means comprehensive. It is meant to be a starting place.

In fact consider this, if you like, as an exercise.

Nice. Stephen Covey also offers good insight into linguistic differences between pro-active and re-active attitudes.

And the reason this list is important is because we use words to think...and our choice of words reflects our thinking and thus a lot more...

Exactly right. The more we consciously speak, and thus think, in positive words the better that this positive thinking will penetrate our subconscious and actually help us become positive in life.
