What if you could learn to talk to yourself as a winner and silence your limiting thoughts? Psychiatrist Daniel Amen calls the limiting thoughts we hear in our heads ANTS - Automatic Negative Thoughts.
A key account manager for a large retail company used this acronym in his remarks to field staff. He reminded his audience that just like real ants at a picnic, their ANTS could ruin their experience of life. Then he recommended they learn to stomp the ANTS: First become aware of them. Next shake them off and stomp them by challenging them. Finally, replace them with more positive and affirming thoughts.
