What you consume will consume you. You are your diet. Whether you will have a positive or negative thought will depend on the information you consume. Your eyes and your ears are the two gateways to your mind. Whatever gets in your mind through these two channels, will shape your thought pattern. In the natural, if you fed well, you will live well.

Don’t Allow Mistakes To Make You Take Yourself Too Seriously:
When negative thoughts overtake your life because of mistakes, you are saying you’re a perfect being. Therefore, to overcome a negative thought and live your life to the fullest, you must accept the mistake as part of life. Failure is telling you how not to do a certain thing. In other words, you learn the right way to do it. Mistakes come because we have inadequate information, distorted reasoning or other situation beyond our capacity. It is not wrong to make a mistake, but; it becomes an issue if you make the same mistake repeatedly. My grandmother will say “if you think you have a kilogram of a problem, move forward and you will see another person with two kilograms of problems.” It simply means errors are synonymous with human beings.
Don’t Allow People’s Opinions To Worry You:
It’s natural to seek people’s approval on what we do or say. See, the best thing to be in life is to be you. I tell people there is only one me. Trying to please everybody is to displease yourself. Why most people are down with negative thoughts is their assumption of what people will think or say about their actions. Unfortunately, those you are concerned about may not even have such a thought about you. Sometimes you think they rated you low, but in reality, they are celebrating your action. Believe this or not, no matter what you do, people will still complain. Instead of concentrating your thought on people’s opinions, the best you could do is discountenancing their negative appraisal once you’re sure you’ve done your best. Besides that, where possible use their opinion to fine-tune your life and procedure. Don’t let people fix you into their mold.
You can change your negative thoughts if you’re a man-pleaser. The easiest thing to be in life is to be yourself. But the most difficult thing to be is to be like others. If you want to be like others, you’ll end up being the second-best.
Accept responsibility, but don’t hurt yourself:
You have a negative thought because you saw yourself as a failure. Agree you screwed it, but that is a fraction of you. Your current bad shape is not all that there is in your being. Yes, you messed up, it’s true you’ve fumbled, but everyone passed through that stage once and sometimes many times. The only bad side is when you shift blame and responsibility for your failure to someone or something.
To overcome bad thoughts and become more positive, you must accept the responsibility for the failure, but don’t blame or hurt yourself. The best of men fails. Most successful people on earth are people who had failed severally on their way to success. This means the stars of the champions are in the scars. When you blame yourself, you look worthless and unproductive, but that is not true of your makeup
Hope For A Better Tomorrow:
Failure is usually a momentary setback. Instead of dwelling and concentrating on the immediate failure, you should look past it onto a better future or a brighter tomorrow. See pass what it is to what it could be. To change negative thoughts, see your failure as a transition experience. Always view failure and challenges as a learning process to better days ahead.
