How Negative are You ?

Being plainly positive or negative isn’t possible or you’d be in an asylum. There is a gray side of ours , not completely good or bad.

Some of you might  assume that positive people are not realistic – that they’re being naive, that they are in denial with their heads stuck in the sand, that they put on fake smiles in the face of difficulty and.  But are they really happy idiots or is there something to their positivity?

They are not faking it. Susan  Cain has been my latest Motivator .In her words , ” Fake it till you make it” You might not be even close to what you want to be , nothing wrong in faking it..and One day you’ll have it all accomplished.

If your version of reality is negative, you are conditioned to believe that whatever can go wrong, will go wrong and whatever can go right, will probably go wrong too.

Ask yourself these questions and Judge for yourself How Negative you are.Nobody gets hurt

  • Do you complain? All the time or just sometimes?
  • Do you often discuss what’s wrong in the world more than what’s right? This includes the ‘terrible’ weather, ‘horrible’ traffic, ‘idiotic’ government, ‘lousy’ economy, ‘stupid’ in-laws, etc.
  • Do you criticize? All the time or just certain people?
  • Are you attracted to drama and disaster (can you unglue yourself from the TV when there’s a news story of a disaster and can you avoid getting involved in the lives of dysfunctional celebrities?)
  • Do you blame? All the time or just certain situations?
  • Do you believe that you have no control over most of your results?
  • Do you feel like a victim? Do you talk about people doing things to you?
  • Are you grateful for what is or will you be grateful when things finally start going right for you?
  • Do you feel like things are happening to you? Or do you feel that they are happening through you?
If you’re not grateful except when things go right, you are negative.Believing that things happen to you puts you in the role of victim.Take the charge and know that Things are not happening to you but through you.Every single moment of your life , you’re deciding how it’s gonna be.Accept it or Not.

 “When you think everything is someone else’s fault, you will suffer a lot. When you realize that everything springs only from yourself, you will learn both peace and joy.” – the Dalai Lama
