Cartoons – How to avoid NEGATIVE people!

July 2, 2009

Do you hang out with ‘can’t do’, ‘no way’ and ‘I’ll never be good at anything’ sort of people? BEWARE, because we become like the people we associate with! Then you’ll constantly be discouraged, on a downer and depressed. Instead, surround yourself with positive people those who can inspire and motivate you so you can, should, and do take action.

Avoid negative people and don’t feel guilty about it – period!

Maybe you have a friend who needs to challenge everything you say – avoid them!

Avoid negative people at work.Don’t pick up the phone or answer the door if a certain negative individual is calling or coming by.(See above cartoon!)

Turn the television off during news briefs that focus on what’s wrong in your community or even the world. Negative news travels fast – very fast!(Do you think all this recession would be as bad if it wasn’t for the press/media going on about it all the time?)

Avoid reading newspapers, books or magazines that may portray or write a story on negative people.

Don’t get sucked into negative conversations.

Here’s some proactive steps you can take to align ourselves with positive people:  You could also visit this blog everyday!

Visit other online forums and get involved with positive discussions.

Go to local community events, clubs or groups.

Organize a positive mentoring group.

Listen to upbeat music, instead of talk show radio programs.

In negative conversations change the subject to something positive so that you don’t get sucked in.

Find other avenues of socializing as opposed to drinking in bars, such as joining clubs, going for walks in the park or opting for a nice dinner out on the town instead. (With exception to bars like this…)

Hints and tips on becoming more positive

1. Train yourself to notice when you are happy and try to collect five happy moments every single day.
2. Get active – physical activity releases happy chemicals in our brains.
3. Sign up as a volunteer research shows that helping others gives us a sense of wellbeing.
4. Keep in contact with your mates – scientists report that individuals with a good social network are more likely to be positive people.
5. Write a letter of thanks to someone who has helped you or had a great influence on you. This will increase your positive and contented feelings.
6. Eat healthily, drink plenty of water and get sufficient sleep. It’s hard to feel positive if you aren’t treating your body with care and respect.

Here’s part 4 of my A-Z of Positive Thinking images series. (I redrew this and coloured it up a few years later – so you might have seen it before!)

And a few of my other favourite Determination quotes:

Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.”                                                                                                 Gail Devers

We must remember that one determined person can make a significant difference, and that a small group of determined people can change the course of history. Sonia Johnson

The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.
Vince Lombardi
