What is negativity?
While this question can be answered in many different ways, here is a very simple answer. Simple but complete. It covers all aspects of negativity.
This answer not only provides a definition, but also shows where you will end up when you allow negativity to rule your life.
Negativity is a barrier. A great barrier.
Barriers prevent access. They prevent you from going where you want to go. You say you've reached the end of the road. So what should I do? Return. Because? You can no longer continue your journey. It will not be a success.
Unfortunately there are a lot of them.Barriers on the path called life. It also happens that barriers such as negativity are more present on the paths that lead to the best goals. Whether it be happiness, wealth, peace of mind, a great career, success in business, etc.
All of these goals are good, and just because they are good, the path to them is littered with obstacles.
However, negativity is a special kind of barrier. While you may encounter a barrier on a road under construction, this never happens with the barrier called negativity.
The road under construction will be better and passable after some time. But the road blocked by negativity gets worse and still remains blocked.
First of all, this path is used by only a few. As a result, weeds will soon grow and, most likely, turn into a thicket. Those who wish to leave later have extra work to do.
They must clear the path before going on it. That is the norm forroads less traveled.
Secondly, negativity as a barrier is presented as authority, every authority wants to be respected. When that authority is respected by many, it is difficult for anyone to ignore it.
The negativity will speak with authority as it will tell you why you are not getting over it. And if many people obey, why not you?
In any case, things have to change. Sooner or later. Someone will come and challenge the negativity. Either through a head-to-head confrontation, or just ignore him and follow the blocked path.
This person must be brave. Is determined.
Could this person be you?
WHY NEGATIVITY EXISTS
Negativity comes from people who have problems that they have not solved. Maybe they never had the chance, didn't know it, or just didn't want to. For those who don't want that, it's because solving the problem requires work that they don't feel comfortable doing.
You may have to dig into your past to solve the root cause of the problems. If the past is painful, they may not want to go down that path. Maybe the effort is too great, they think and decide to keep the status quo.
At this point it will be important to clarify something about negative people. This will also help you keep track of things.
Negative people need help.. Her negativity comes from something buried deep inside of her. If this issue is not dug up and dealt with, they get caught up in the negativity of it.
That means they will continue to generate negativity and affect more people. Maybe your siblings, parents, cousins, spouse, children, the list is endless. There are many people out there who are vulnerable.
So since they need help, it would certainly be nice to get it. And if you can, go ahead and offer it up. For example, if you are a psychiatrist, you can be a great help to them.
The problem arises when you are friends with these people and you are still struggling to overcome your own situation.
As you begin your journey to success, you cannot afford to be around negative people. What you need is people to support and inspire you. Negative people will just suck the passion, energy, creativity, confidence, and whatever else they can get out of you.

If you allow others to talk about you or your goals, they will. However, you have the option to prohibit them from doing so. When you're sad because someone said something, you know you allowed it.
To break this, make the opposite choice andmake sure you can.
2. "The person who says they can't do it shouldn't interrupt the person who is doing it."- Chinese proverb
Why exactly would someone make you doubt your abilities? Maybe he knows you from your childhood.

This is a reminder of something very important to do when a negative person is trying to interfere with your goals. Just tell him to mind his own business. Anyone who feeds you impossibilities is not worth your time.
3. “Your current circumstances do not dictate where you can go; they just determine where you start.”- Qubein's Nest

8. "Stop letting other people dilute or poison your day with their words or opinions."Steve Maraboli
You are solely responsible for the outcome of your day.
From the moment you wake up, start creating your own day. For example, when you go to work, take your version of the day with you. However, there are some opportunities for others to get involved as well.

Don't fool yourself into thinking that you can move while harboring negativity. You can only absorb so much and it's better not to test yourself. Don't let negativity enter your life. No way.
11. “BEING POSITIVE doesn't mean things will end well. Rather, it is the knowledge that YOU will be okay no matter how things turn out.”- A stranger
