3 Dangers of Negative Thinking

3 Dangers of Negative Thinking

We’re forever being told to embrace positive thinking, but rarely do we hear about the dangers of negative thinking. And, there are dangers in negative thinking. It is negative thinking that has brought on the lack of opportunities, the ruin of relationships, and the loss of jobs.

1.  Negative thinking results in negative actions

It is true that what you think is what you see. It is what “colours” your perspective
of the outside world. So, if you see work, friends, family members, and general life outside your home through a negative lens, it is a reflection of your own And you will be critical, pessimistic, and argumentative around anyone who is positive. You will look for and find fault in people, places, and things.

2.  Negative thinking attracts negative thinkers

You attract what you put out in the world. By thinking, speaking, and acting negatively, you are attracting critics, cynics, and negative conversations to you. While you may feel comfortable being in the company of like-minded people, take a step back and look at yourself and your group from the view of someone else.

Chances are good you will see unpleasant conversations and bleakness, which is not helpful to you or anyone else. Continue to surround yourself with negativity, and you will slip further down the path of emotional despair. Who are you attracting?

3. Negative thinking is the cause of passive-aggressive behaviour

Negative thinking causes you to feel disempowered and disenfranchised, like a victim of circumstances with no way out. Feeling this way will cause you to blame others; this leads to passive (no action or ownership) aggressive (hostile and resentful) behaviour. Nothing productive results from this kind of behaviour.

Avoiding the dangers of negative thinking is possible. Just be aware of your thoughts and who you are attracting. Understand that while there are problems in the world, at your work, or in your family, you have the power to look for positives and opportunities.

You have the power to look for something good in every person, place, or thing that crosses your path You don’t need to ignore the problems. When you focus on the positive, you’ll have the energy and resources to address those problems and, in the end, you will be much more satisfied with the results.

How To Sell Stuff U.S. Style In every school across the United States, children stand each morning and recite the pledge of allegiance. But here’s what those kids and their teachers don’t know – the pledge of allegiance is nothing more than a marketing tool started in 1892 to sell flags to US schools.
