Negativity isn’t fun! No matter how many success stories a person has, there will be a “no” sometime in your life. Someone, perhaps because of their own life experiences, will not click with your hard work. Perhaps it will be a manager, a customer, a neighbor, or even a spouse. You have two choices at that point.
You can focus on the negativity and only see yourself from that person’s perspective or you can rise above it and press on. The person who lets negativity take charge of their life, loses. But the person who can rise above it, wins.
The Negative Force
You can have a streak of wonderful days, weeks, months, or even years and then it happens. Someone strikes back at you and you don’t even know why. You know you have hit a brick wall and there will be no way you can make that person happy.
How to be a Champion despite Negativity
From this point on, move forward. Don’t let that one voice fill your head. Fill yourself up with good things, inspirational videos, music, and books. Look for the beauty in every season. Tell yourself, “this too shall pass.”
Explore the truth in the Negativity
Negativity may hurt you but it is also a teaching moment. You can explore if there are ways to do things better. Don’t dwell in the negativity but use it to better your skills and move on to people who do appreciate you.
