What does being negative accomplish?

What does being negative accomplish? 

Nothing. Well maybe more negativity, but what’s the point?

I used to be a glass half empty kind of person. I think it’s the artist in me, constantly trying to improve upon whatever I was working on. Practice harder, write better songs, tighten up performances, the list goes on.

Though as I’ve grown in life, I shifted my perspective on almost everything and I’ve come to realize that BEING NEGATIVE GETS YOU NOWHERE.

I’ve found that rather than focusing on the problem, focusing on the solution will always yield much better results, and also a happier feeling in life.

One of the gurus that I follow, Charles Poliquin, always writes about surrounding yourself with positive people. Learning from them, even if their principles and successes aren’t directly related to your own, you can find ways to apply it to yourself.

This is a positive mentality, an upward way of thinking, rather than a downward thought process.

This next point might be a tough pill to swallow, but do you have negative people in your life? Doubting you? Filling your vibe with waste and toxicity? Perhaps it’s time to limit interaction with this person because they could be bringing you down. Although there is nothing wrong with helping other people out, sometimes a little selfishness is what you need to thrive as a person.

The next time you find yourself in a potentially negative situation, take a step back and look at it from a positive light. I can almost guarantee that things will seem richer and fuller that way.
