Taking The Shield Of Faith- Overcoming A Negative Mindset.

A Negative Mindset.

This is a line of thoughts that focuses on ones failures or inability to attain/achieve or get hold of one’s desires. A negative mindset thinks of how such a person can’t attain something and most often has several reasons why he can’t attain it. A negative mindset will focus all his/her energy on possibility of failing and magnifies the chances of failing. This often leads to a persons’ inability to make a decision. The person usually fails to take any action.
Sometimes we are unconsciously unaware of our negativity. You may have a good idea and then you start thinking of how you can’t implement it because of the challenges involved.
This can as well be linked inferiority complex.

Basically this is mostly based on the fear off both unknown and known challenges.

Impact of a negative mindset on your life/others’ life’s.
Failure to achieve ones goals:

For I know the plans that I have towards you. To prosper you and not to harm you. To give you a hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11.


The fact that we have failed in the past doesn’t mean we are failures. When we see ourselves as failures then we become failures. A negative mindset hinders us from achieving the plans that God has for us.
