Being consumed by negativity, in whichever form – whether it’s your thoughts, actions or environment – is extremely damaging to your health and wellbeing. The more you surround yourself with negativity, the more negative experiences you will encounter.
Here we outline one simple step to remove negativity from your life – there is a catch, however. First and foremost, you must have a willingness to shift the negativity in your life and turn it into positivity, it’s only when this happens that change can take place.
Negativity is a Choice
So, what is the one easy step to removing negativity from your life?
Although a lot of what you are going through might seem out of your control, or as though it’s not your fault, you might be surprised to hear that you have the ability to change it all.
You simply have to acknowledge that allowing negativity into your life in all its forms is a choice. Your choice. Even when you might feel like it is being brought into your life by outside sources, that’s not the case. You, and only you, have to be willing to accept negativity in order for it to take place.
When faced with negativity from other people, remember this – how people treat you is their karma, how you react is yours. It’s often best not to react at all. If you can approach every complex situation with an accepting mindset, and choose not to react to other people’s behavior, any problems that come your way will quickly pass, like water off a duck’s back.
Let go of the Ego
The ego can often stand in the way of acceptance and will stop you from being able to forgive, which means you will cling onto painful experiences that have been and gone.
As explained in this article, the ego has absolutely no place in the present moment and as long as you choose to keep yourself in the now, you can’t possibly be led by it.
When you lose the ego, you will find that happiness, love and success, flow naturally into your life. Instead of feeling a desperate urge to have all of those things, you will be telling the universe that you already do have them and, as a result, you will. To put it simply, you have to feel satisfied with what you already have to receive more.
Now that you know that all of the negativity in your life is a choice – how much longer will you choose to let your life be overrun with bad emotions, thoughts and actions? There is another option…
The flip side to negativity is of course positivity and you can quite simply counteract any negativity in your life by being positive. This means distancing yourself from people who bring negativity into your life, making choices that lead you along a good path and choosing not to partake in any conversation of a negative nature.
One of the most effective ways to transform your life from negative to positive is to think positive thoughts. The key here is to make a conscious effort to watch your thoughts, become a spectator, and quickly dispel any negative thinking that arises.
Affirmations are also a prime way to lead a positive life – in “This one Thing will give you Everything You’ve ever Wanted”, we explain what they are and how you can use them daily to bring prosperity, love and happiness into your life.
If you are willing to follow these steps to create a better life for yourself, be prepared to experience a life more fulfilling than you ever knew possible!
