Overcoming Negativity

When we become self aware, we can honestly examine and question our ego’s patterns from a place of non-attachment. What we may discover is that it actually enjoys its negative beliefs. As strange as it may seem, our ego has convinced us there is a payoff from maintaining negativity and dissatisfaction with life. There is a false sense of power, security, and control in being able to resist life and be negative. It is also the easiest thing to do.

It is east to complain, it is a worthy challenge to be consistently grateful. It is easy to be unhappy. It takes courage to see the perfection and anything as it is. It requires great discipline and faith to maintain a positive attitude in the face of hardship. It takes true power to overcome negativity of our own ego and others and awaken to become fulfilled and compassionate. You are capable of rising to every challenge, in fact, it is your destiny or else you wouldn’t be alive.

      True, Gary. Negative thinking leads us to focus on the worst aspects or possible outcomes of a given situation instead of the positives. This negative thinking can cause us to experience a great deal of stress, worry, and sadness as long as we continue to adopt these thought patterns.
