Focus on the Good: How to Stay Positive in a Negative World

Are you the best at what you do?

Everyone wants success, but very few achieve the success they dream about.

This personal challenge e-book describes the personal evolution necessary to become a super-star.

Control What You Can

You don’t have to carry the weight of the world. Things feel scary right now, things in the world seem mostly negative, but it’s not up to you to carry all of it. If you can’t limit yourself to minimal time spent reading the news or surfing the web, then quitting cold turkey might be a good plan.

Your focus should be on yourself and your family and work. You have control over these things. You do not have control over the bad in the world. Do not own it. Remember that if you get sad and it paralyzes you, the bad guys win. 

It Doesn’t Mean You Don’t Care

Just because you choose not to sit in front of the tv and know everything about the bad things happening doesn’t mean you don’t care. You do; that’s the problem.

You care so much that it affects your life and relationships. Is that bringing about the end of the bad things of the world? No? Ok so remember that you are allowed to prioritize your mental health. You owe it to yourself and your family to embrace positivity where you can find it, and focus on the good. 

A positive perspective builds on itself and before you know it, instead of curling up with doom and gloom you’re on your way to a positive and productive life.
