MINUTE WITH MAXWELL
TODAY’S STATEMENT OF STRENGTH
Dwelling on negative thoughts is like fertilizing weeds. -Norman Vincent Peale
Hi, I'm glad you're with us today on Minute with Maxwell. We're sharing statements of strength to kind of encourage you at this time. Of all the statements of strength that I'm giving over this entire two-month period of time, this one could be my favorite one. It's by Norman Vincent Peale, and I just love the visualness of this statement. He said, ‘Dwelling on negative thinking is like fertilizing weeds.’ Isn't that just graphic? I mean, when I think negatively, when you think negatively, it's like us going out to our garden and fertilizing the weeds instead of chopping and cutting the weeds out.
Now, if I had a garden and I was out there, and you were over there with me, and I was putting fertilizer on weeds, you'd say, ‘John, what are you doing? That's the dumbest thing I've ever seen.’ Who could ever imagine somebody fertilizing weeds? Isn't it amazing that if it was a garden and we fertilized weeds, we'd think that's the dumbest thing I've ever seen. But we will allow ourselves to fertilize the weeds in our mind of negative thoughts. That's not smart. So, if you've been in your mind-garden fertilizing the weeds, just cut the weeds out and fertilize the flowers, okay?
I'm glad you're with us today on Minute with Maxwell.
