I’m sure you know at least one person that is always negative. This person is always a victim. If something goes wrong, it someone else’s fault. They don’t look for solutions, they look to assign blame. One of the jokes I have used is to blame the person who is not at work today. Blame is diffused and negativism can be minimized.
Negativism makes as much sense as drinking poison and waiting for someone else to die. The truth is that negativism is in essence its’ own poison. It poisons our minds. It poisons our relationships. It poisons our creativity. It poisons our ability to get back up after being knocked down. It poisons our success. And last but not least, it poisons our happiness.
When you dig a hole, you dig down you don’t dig up. When you build, you build up you don’t build down. Negativism is digging and positivism is building. If we spend most of our time building instead of digging our businesses and lives will benefit greatly.
Stop and share a positive thought with someone you know or someone you love today!
