Question: What happens when we focus on the negative side of life instead of the positive?
The answer is simple.
We miss out on seeing the breadth of opportunities that would otherwise enable us to develop and strengthen our lives.
We end up journeying on a downward spiral, feeling that no matter what we do, we simply won’t be successful.
Start seeing everything that happens in life as an opportunity for growth.
Even every challenge.
Let me ask you... Do you find yourself:
By adopting the habit of seeing only the negative side of life, we risk standing still in our lives or even going backwards.
We can also find ourselves becoming increasingly resistant to change.
This is counterintuitive and can lead us toward attracting more of the same.
Then, we find ourselves saying things like: “I knew it wouldn’t work,” or “I told you the world’s against me,” or “What else can go wrong?”
In short, our life becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy of condemnation.
The way to defeat this is to seek out the opportunities and lessons, and to act on them accordingly.
How do we achieve this?
It's actually simpler than it seems.
One powerful way is to ask ourselves reflective questions like:
By adopting this more positive outlook, we naturally seek ways to learn and move forward.
In turn, we discover how the world isn’t against us; it’s merely the way we are perceiving things.
This allows us to get back in the drivers seat.
We are the ones reframing our circumstances to focus on the positives and use them to constructively create our lives.
Take a look back at some recent encounters, incidents, or challenges that you didn't see as opportunities.
What could you have learned on each occasion?
What opportunities were there for the taking?
What will you do differently next time if you're faced with a similar situation?
Commit to the next thirty days as a period of action.
Extend this mindset to different facets of your life.
Gradually, it will turn into a habit, prompting you to find opportunities in everything you undertake.
Should you face setbacks initially, don't be discouraged.
Instead, evaluate your experiences, learn, and recommit with renewed determination.
