I have seen it repeatedly; people allowing their negative outlook on life to sabotage their lives and careers. When you allow a negative frame of mind to dictate the outcome of your life you allow yourself to miss out on the best things in life. Also, by having a negative outlook can destroy close relationships which in turn can sabotage your career advancement opportunities. Here are some key points that may prevent you from throwing your career away by not allowing your negativity to destroy or sabotage your life and/or career.
Don’t let your negativity make you feel as if you are inferior to your working associates. Never put yourself down. Never think that you got your position due to being lucky. Never think that you are way out of your league when going up against your competition. Always know that people are people and nothing more. All people put their pants on one leg at a time. Always know that if it is possible for someone else that it is possible for you to. Never allow anyone to own the definition of who you are; only you know that.
There are things that you will want to take away from what I just shared with you. Treat these different scenarios as stepping stones of higher consciousness to learn something new. Despite everything, you have probably contributed many things to your fellow co-worker’s ideas and/or projects that someone else wouldn’t have been able to come up with. So, learn to pat yourself on the back and learn to love yourself.
You will want to avoid assembling with the negative entities that you presently toil with from day to day. Let your negative coworkers stew in their own misery. Stay as far away from them as possible. And always remember that pain is inevitable but being miserable is a choice. Studies conducted have found that witnessing insolence in the morning can disrupt and/or sabotage the rest of the day. Know that, you don’t have to let this sort of thing happen in the first place.
Now, it comes a time when you have to let your coworkers deal with their own sentiments in their own way. Make it a point to steer clear of other peoples’ negativity. You must learn to stop adopting other peoples’ problems. Lets’ face it, we all have problems, but we don’t have to overload our plate with additional problems that don’t have any positive bearing on our lives whatsoever. Never bite off more than you can chew. You will be better off for doing so.
If you want to change your negative outlook on life to positive you will want to learn to count your blessings and remember all that you have to be thankful for. Being truly grateful and thankful for living in such a great country as the United States is truly a blessing in itself. And always know that when you think you have it bad, someone else has got it worse. So, get positive and stay positive!
