When I make a change in my life, I have been much more successful heading TOWARDS a target than running away from something. It is easier to move in a positive direction than away from a negative situation.
I am more able to accomplish what TO DO, than avoid what NOT TO DO.
Think about it: If I give you a goal, you understand where you’re headed. If I tell you not to do something, you are left with a void. How do you fill that void? By thinking about what not to do. And by dwelling on what you shouldn’t do, you begin to picture yourself doing it. And once you visualize it, you’re a nanosecond away from doing it.
