Empowered to Overcome Negativity

Unfortunately negativity can take over your life without you really knowing it. It's

perfectly normal to be in a bad mood every now and then, but sometimes you'll be

so overwhelmingly negative that it'll get in the way of reaching your goals.

Having a negative attitude hurts the people around you. Perhaps more importantly, it hurts

you. When you determine the underlying cause of your negative attitude and take action to turn it around, you can begin a journey to the positive side of thinking.

Your goals and dreams for your life are a wonderful possibility. It may be a difficult journey

to get there, but it's certainly possible if you adopt a positive attitude and take concerted

action to make them happen.

When you're negative, however, the game stops in its tracks. You're basically saying that

you can't or don't think you can reach your goal, so you don't even bother trying. Of course

you'll never reach your goal if you don't try!

Strategies To Overcome Negativity

It doesn't matter what the degree of your negativity is, you can take steps to get yourself out

of that black hole. It's not too late to turn your life around. Even if you've had

negative attitudes throughout your lifetime, you can still change your manner of thinking.

Consider some of the following strategies for overcoming negativity:

1. Self-talk. You're constantly telling yourself things throughout the day. You're forming

opinions, deciding what to do, and determining your self-worth. You can start

correcting the way you think by paying close attention to your self-talk.

• When you're in the bathroom in the morning getting ready to go out and face the

world, what are you telling yourself? Are you thinking about how much you're going to

accomplish today? Or are you getting yourself ready for failure? Take the positive

route and your day will surely be better.

2. Look for the silver lining. The silver lining is always there waiting for you to

discover it. When the chips are down, it's especially easy to just wallow in negative

energy. Know that you have the power to find that one small positive light among all

the negativity.

3. Use daily affirmations. Affirmations can combat negativity as soon as the negative thought arrives in your head. Repeat positive affirmations to yourself daily, or post

them in a place where you can see them often.

• Remember just how powerful your mind is. When you continuously feed your

mind with positivity, you can't help but to become more positive.

4. Reduce stress. Negativity has a tendency to arise out of stressful situations. If you lead

a high stress life, then these stressful situations may become the norm for you. Your

best bet is to find a way to get out of too many stressful situations, or at least

study ways to better deal with the stress.

5. Give yourself time to think. Instead of letting yourself get carried away with a

negative situation, choose to give yourself time to think before speaking your mind.

Then you can act wisely, instead of reacting negatively.

Use these strategies each day to help you overcome negativity and build a positive attitude.

Soon you'll reap the rewards of a boosted confidence, a stronger self-esteem, and an intense
