Studies have found that how you think determines all your successes and failures. So, if you are dominated by negative thoughts then these will affect all your actions and results.

In this short video you will discover the easiest way to change your dominant thoughts and emotions, so you can start achieving all your goals more easily and finally create the life you want.

00:00 Hi, this is Mike Pettigrew, serial entrepreneur and author of the number one Amazon bestseller, the most powerful goal achievement system in the world. And then in this short video, we're going to look at the power of negative thinking. You may think; why, why negative thinking? Usually people talk about the power of positive thinking. Well, I assure you - how do you think creates the circumstances of your life? And I've had a lot of experience in the power of positive thinking and the power of negative thinking. And let me assure you, I wouldn't recommend the power of negative thinking as you'll soon discover. And this is a very short extract from my new online training course called gold hacking. If you want further details about it, it's It's my new accelerated goal achievement system. So, and I'm really proud of it because it can change your life.

00:58 I'm absolutely sure of that. And so many people have given me amazing feedback. It's absolutely transformed their lives. So without any further ado, let's get into the power of, of, first of all positive thinking. Famous sayings - this is Mahatma Gandhi - he said "a man is but the product of his thoughts, what he thinks, he becomes". What we think we become - very important. So that's positive thinking. Also, Winston Churchill, he said "the pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity. An optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty." I love that. That's wonderful. I'll read it again; "The pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity. An optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty." That's a wonderful, wonderful saying. So that's the power of positive thinking. Let's take a look at the power of negative thinking. If you've been watching my videos or listening to my podcasts at this point, you probably know something about my story just in case you don't I'll share with you - a few years ago, and this is the power of negative thinking. Several years ago, about 15 years ago I lost everything. I had been very successful in business. I'd sold my first major company to a multinational in 2001 and I thought I'd taken early retirement, but it's amazing the twists and turns, that life has in store for us. It's almost like for many years I discovered the power of positive thinking and next I had to learn the power of negative thinking, the way a lot of people think. For me to be able to really understand the depths of suffering that people go through. So a few years after selling my company to a multinational, I was very wealthy. I had achieved all my life's biggest dreams at that point. I was only 39 and I made some really bad investments, a couple of really bad investments and I trusted the wrong people.

03:03 I trusted the wrong people, I trusted people that my friends were - well, two individuals that my friends said, what are you going into business with them for? They thought I was crazy, but it was doing it out of fear. A set of circumstances occurred where I had to go back into business quickly and it was motivated by fear. And when anything is motivated by fear, there's a possibility of making serious mistakes. And I did because I lost everything. Within a few years, I reached a point where our baby son was born and I had no money to feed him or my wife or myself. Our fortune, which was considerable, was completely gone and I can't even begin to describe how frightening it was. I hated myself. I berated myself. I felt so guilty to have got my little family into such an awful situation.

04:04 We thought we had enough money and prosperity to last a lifetime and it was all gone. And you can only imagine how, how, how much I hated myself. I thought I was useless. I all, the confidence I had before, it was completely gone. When you lose a lot, gradually over time, your self esteem, your self confidence, even if you have lots of it, it's slowly but surely eroded until you think you're just worthless and useless. And that, that was the situation I found myself in. And I gradually, gradually sank into pessimism from a positive thinker to really a pessimist. Okay. And I hated myself and berated myself. And the result is that everything got worse because as I mentioned earlier, your, or I've mentioned in many videos, your dominant thoughts in your dominant emotions create the circumstances of your life. So if you're negative, you're pumping out into the universe negative thoughts and negative emotions, you're actually attracting into your life more bad stuff, a hard fact, and it was extremely frightening.

05:14 Anyway, I got to the point, as I say, where I had no money, all our fortune was gone. This was the effect of the, this was the power of negative thoughts, a self fulfilling prophecy - awful! However, how did they change my circumstances? Because clearly I did and my life has totally changed through what I discovered and now I'm a serial entrepreneur. I've created 18 business over the years - I've multiple bestsellers. I've spoken on the stage of the most influential personal development trainer in history. I've been interviewed on radio and TV well over a hundred times. I've helped tens of thousands of people transform their lives all around the world, because of the awful situation I went through. I honestly believe that if we go through hell, but we manage to transform our situation, we are obliged to share what we've learned with others. Otherwise the experience is wasted. It's so important for you to help other people along their path.

06:19 If you've gone through terrible hardship and you've managed to transform, otherwise the experience is wasted. So I got to the stage where I just, I couldn't take it anymore. I couldn't take it anymore. I enough was enough. I just couldn't take it anymore. And I made a vow to the universe. I said, show me what I must do. I'll do anything. Show me - you know, it's, it's probably the first time I ever said that because I had to sink so low to get to that stage where I said, look, just show me. Show me what I need to do. And immediately the next day - amazing - prayer was answered. I picked up a book called the science of getting rich. This is the book that the, uh, the secret was based on. And funnily enough, I read it the very same month as the author of the secret, read it.

07:14 This book changed my life. It's all about, even though the, the title is the science of getting rich, it's all about the power of gratitude and how gratitude acts like a magnet. So I decided to do what today I call my crazy gratitude experiment. I knew I had to change my dominant thoughts and emotions, that that was the solution to changing our situation. So every 30 minutes of the day I would bring up gratitude. I think about a time in the past where I had felt deep, sincere gratitude. I dwell on that memory, try to relive it in as much detail as possible and gradually gratitude would bubble up. But if you're doing this every 30 minutes of the day, you get quite good at it. So at the end of the first day, I felt so much lighter. Our circumstances definitely hadn't changed and I'd only been doing this a day.

08:07 But I felt different and the dominant thoughts and feelings I was transmitting out into the universe changed. It finally changed. So what you, the dominant thoughts and emotions that you have actually create your circumstances. I, this was my experiment to see if our circumstances would change by doing this. And they absolutely did. A massive, massive, massive coincidences started happening only three days later. Uh, I originally decided to do this experiment for a week, but I kept it up for, for quite a while. But you know what? I felt so different just after the first day. But the first major real coincidences started happening only three days later. Coincidences that affect me every day of my life. Coincidences that enabled me to create amazing businesses. And just extraordinary. Everything started to happen when I changed my inner life, and this is the, this is the way to achieve your life's biggest dreams

09:15 This is how you achieve your goals. Small, subtle changes within, it's almost like pulling the corner of a spider's Web. You change just one aspect within yourself and it's a very easy to do. The whole web of your life changes. You pull the corner of the spider's Web, the whole web changes. So you change just one aspect of your life and your entire life changes. So as soon as I changed my mindset, our circumstances started to change. And this - it's this awful experience, awful experience has enabled me to go on to help tens of thousands of people all over the world to transform their lives and achieve their life's biggest dreams. So if you want to achieve your goals, if you want to achieve your goals in the fastest way possible, check out my website, that's and thank you so much for watching.
