Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.
Can there be a more frustrating feeling than being dragged down by those around you; especially your family, friends or coworkers? Im sure you know how the story goes. There you are, feeling like youre sitting on top of the world, enjoying the rarified air of a super sensational day, when all of a sudden
BAM! someone comes along and knocks the wind out of your sail.
Deflated and mentally defeated, you dejectedly sink back down to earth, dragged down by the negativity of others. Instead of flying high and having the time of your life, like you were only moments before, you now feel like the weight of the entire world has come crashing down around you. Talk about a drag!
Don't let the negativity given to you by the world disempower you. Instead give to yourself that which empowers you.
Ironically, many times the people who habitually drag us down have our best intentions at heart. These short sighted individuals cannot see life as it could be and consequently cannot see you attaining the lofty goals you have and hold for yourself.
And since they do not want to see you get hurt, they choose to burst your foolish bubble. Even though they are in their own way trying to help you, they can lay waste to your dreams if you allow them that opportunity. Please dont.
Drag your thoughts away from your troubles... by the ears, by the heels, or any other way you can manage it.
And then there are other people who drag you down by constantly siphoning away your enthusiasm, energy and zest for living. Again, these people can be those you work with or even your best of friends. Why in the world would someone want to let the air out of your bag? More than likely, it probably has a lot to do with the fact that these individuals are going nowhere and want to take you along for the ride.
Youve got to make certain that these Negative Nellie types dont drag you down to their level. And that may require that you steer clear of these people, or at the very least, keep up your guard at all times. Please dont let these people get the best of you and the best of your life.
You can either give negativity power over your life or you can choose happiness instead.
Hey, lets face the facts here. If you constantly hand around with people who consistently drag you down, chances are better than average that they will eventually get to you. On the other hand, if you choose to associate with positive charged people who continuously build you up, chances are good that UP is precisely where youll be heading.
In order to get where youve dreamed of going, youve got to turn off the negatives and tune into some positive vibes instead. And rather than needlessly allowing others to pull you down, why not surround yourself with people who are a constant source of cheeriness, enthusiasm and optimism?
And one more thing here. Since true happiness can only be obtained by passionately pursuing your hopes, dreams and aspirations, why not seize control of your destiny on earth by embracing a power packed, positive powered approach to living? When you choose to shut out the negatives and open your heart to the abundance of opportunity each day presents us all, the best of life will be yours for the taking. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "No one can cheat you out of ultimate success but yourself." And you're not about to let that happen any more, are you?
The Bottom Line: When you start looking up and stop looking down, youll start seeing life as it could be and start living it as it should be.
