Despite the fact that we hate negativity as human beings, we seem to be very much attracted to negative thoughts—and we focus on negativity more than necessary.
Waking up from your bed is a positive thing and being able to walk out of bed to the bathroom is another positive event. No matter the number of positive happenings that will fill our day, a little drop of negativity can make us feel hopeless; over-shadowing all that have gone well for us.
It is pretty worse when it comes to future happenings—when it comes to what we want to do, especially if there is risk involved. Many of us continue to sit in our comfort zones though we yearn for progress simply because we can’t afford to let go the thought of what could go wrong should we get out there…
Surely, everything that has a brighter side must have a dark side. But it is up to us to choose the side we want to focus on, build our energy on and derive satisfaction from.
Apart from being plunged into deep fear and curtailing your own progress, focusing on what could go wrong does not make you a better person. In fact, it takes you far away from risk and how can you be any better or successful without taking up the needed risk in life?
