One of the challenges we have daily is to maintain a healthy attitude and avoid getting caught up in negativity.
The reason why it’s a daily challenge is because negativity is not hard to find. We don’t have to look for it because it’s always close by via different media such as television, radio or social networks, also via daily conversations with people.
It’s not hard to recognise patterns people we associate with regularly have. Some people get their charge or feel significant by being negative and most times, they may not even realise their own behaviours. Without any provocation, people will blame or complain about:
- Other people including co-workers, significant other or family members.
- The weather.
- The traffic.
- The government.
- How expensive things are.
And the list goes on and on.
If we’re not cautious about what we give our focus and attention to, we can easily get drawn into negativity, which will affect our attitude and energy levels. We must be willing to say “no” to negativity in order to be at our best consistently and be true to who we are.
