Negativity is all around us! As much as we’d like to have a positive outlook on things, it can be challenging at times when there is so much around us that thrives on negativity.
Consider the things we may read on the internet, in newspapers or watch on television — most of it focuses on negative things. If we are not intentionally doing things to shield ourselves from negativity, it can:
- Influence our outlook on things.
- Demotivate us.
- Change our perception about something or someone adversely.
- Cause us to be negative, sometimes without even realising it.
- Decrease our ability to get things done.
