Negativity is generated within ourselves due to many things but one of the most common reasons is due to financial hardship. For many people a job is not even enough anymore, suddenly expenses start going up and the bills start piling up. People encounter loads of stress, which then starts to turn into a form of despair and uncertainty. Some people start taking it on others as they start feeling miserable and discontent. Negativity starts developing in many forms. You come home and kick the dog, yell at your wife or husband and kids. Things start getting rough.
My intent here is to give you some pointers and share some of my philosophies and ideas to help you out.
I could make this a series if it generates interest and provide even more specific ideas, so be sure to mention it in the comments area or send me an email.
Most people in the world struggle at one point or another with their finances and overall economic situation.
If this is something you are personally struggling with, then know that there is hope. You can do many things to alleviate or minimize the impact of financial difficulty in your life. Let me give you one of the first points that will help you:
Develop your mindset
One of the most important things you can do is to start to change your mindset, many people have a negative attitude about everything to the point that they bring themselves down before creating positive change in their lives, they set themselves up to failure before even starting, a common way is self-imposed excuses about everything, then procrastination becomes a regular thing as they talk themselves out of doing something that may potentially bring about better change.
Working on your personal development will be one of the greatest investments of time you can ever make because this is something that they don’t really teach at schools.
So it is your responsibility to take the initiative to gather yourself a few good books, audios, or videos depending on your learning style.
Distance yourself from people who bring you down, you will know which kind of people these are because it is typically the ones that talk gossip, or are always talking about their ills, how bad everything is or other negative useless talk that serves no one good especially themselves. All this brings your energy down, demotivates you, and even puts yourself in a similar situation by association.
There are tons of resources now with the internet. Start by searching motivational material on Social Media or even a few online searches to take you to articles where you will learn more.
See you on the next article of this series.
