Negativity is Everywhere.
"Negativity is everywhere. You wake up, your hair looks terrible. Your partner complains you are out of coffee. ... Your co-worker whispers that Candace is sick again.. Every day we are assaulted by negativity. No wonder we can't help but dish it out as we receive it. We report the aches and pains of the day, rather than the joys."
Excerpt from “Think Like A Monk” by Jay Shetty
Now your homework for this weekend (and moving forward) is to write down(or think through) 10 good things for every 1 negative thought or criticism you think or speak.
This goes for how you speak about others and YOURSELF as well.
After getting in the habit of focusing on the 10-1 ratio you will begin to see your own weakness differently.
Too often people focus on their mistakes or shortcomings, rather than their strengths, which will always outweigh their weaknesses.
Stacking the positives about yourself and others is similar to stacking small wins.
Why do we tend to only count a WIN if it is HUGE.
Imagine if you start stacking your little joys and little wins. Begin focusing on the positives about yourself and others, day after day. Imagine how much more POSITIVE everything and everyone around you would seem. I imagine your dasy would get significantly better.
Plus the confidence in yourself after hitting every criticism with 10 compliments. BOOM💣
