Motivational Monday ~ Choosing Positivity: Rejecting Negativity

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

Rejecting negativity, especially negative individuals, is crucial for maintaining a positive mindset. Wayne Dyer advocates a simple approach: when confronted with negativity, silently affirm "next" and move forward.

Avoiding negativity also entails distancing oneself from negative people, as they can drain one's energy. Surrounding oneself with love and positivity is essential; negativity should not be allowed to take root in one's environment. Remember, the company you keep reflects upon you, so choose wisely.

Mindset shapes our experiences each day. It determines how we navigate challenges, even the seemingly insurmountable ones. Personally, I seek mentors who exemplify resilience amidst chaos. These are individuals who maintain optimism and hopefulness in the face of negativity. They provide invaluable perspective and help me stay calm during turbulent times. I've always said the 5 people you surround yourself is a reflection of you.

Thank you, I am not a big news reader, preferring to be grateful for life, nature, etc. It has allowed me to remain positive and grateful even under the worst circumstances.

Dorie, I absolutely LOVE this post! Along with avoiding negative people (who have a tendency to dump on the positive folks in the world), another thing is to avoid negative self talk. I am doing a "quest" called Superbrain and one of Jim Kwik's  acronyms is ANTS. Avoid negative thoughts! 

I loved that you brought up a lesson from Dr. Wayne Dyer. I'm reading his book, Change Your Thoughts Change Your Life about his version of explaining the 81 verses of the Tao Te Ching. I start my morning routine with a new verse every day.

I love this Gayle Rich-Boxman Fishhawk Lake Real Estate ..negative self talk can really destroy a person's self esteem and outlook! Avoid negative thoughts is something that can be done but is hard if all you hear is negativity. Surrounding yourself by those that work on avoiding negativity is such a plus!

I agree 100%, and I am willing to give anyone a chance, but if all they bring to the table is negativity then they have to go, haha.  So, we are referring to Endre as chef Endre Barath, Jr. now?  No doubt he is extremely talented in the kitchen, but his meals often have too many carbs for me, and not enough steak, haha.
