Positive self-talk helps students stay happy

By Aubrie Graham/reporter

Positive thinking is the key to happiness.

“Whether you believe you can do something or you believe you can’t, you’re correct,” sociology instructor Joe Reed said during a Self Talk presentation on NW Campus Sept. 11.

Students can change and even erase the negative thoughts they grew up thinking by consistently thinking about positive things. Reed suggested that people speak out loud to help stop negative self-talk.

“You become what you think about most,” he said. “The silent killer is between your two ears.”

Reed recommended three books to help students with positive thinking: Unlimited Power by Anthony Robbins, Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey and The Feel Good Handbook by David Burns.
