The Power of Positive Thinking (Part 2)

ANT 1 "Always/Never Thinking"

• This happens when you think something that happens will "always" repeat itself, or you’ll "never" get what you want.

• Thinking in words like always, never, no one, everyone, every time, every thing; for example:

• "He/She always puts me down.", "I’ll never get a raise.", "Everyone always takes advantage of me.", "No one ever listens to me."

• REALITY CHECK: A single event cannot predict a pattern of events or measure correlation. Statistically, one must have about 1000 random events to measure correlation. For example, a salesman typically will be told "no" dozens of times before he is told "yes".
