Take responsibility for your thoughts

I currently work in a large organisation and sitting nearby are two people who I find to be extremely negative.

Other staff members have commented about their negativity to me, and have asked how I handle sitting near them!

Lucky for me, I am easily able to block out their negative comments. I see no point in taking it on board and for the most part I just ignore them. In fact, I kind of feel sorry for them because they don’t realise just how much they are jeapordising their chances of opportunities.

Just today one of them was unsuccessful in a role she applied for and the other was recently unsuccessful in applying for another role.

Now, maybe they were unsuccessful because there is something bigger and better out there for them, or it could be that their negativity is coming across in their interviews.

Being an avid believer in the Law of Attraction, I am thinking that they have attracted their bad results through their internal thinking. They however, are blaming management for the fact they were unsuccessful.

I used to be just like them. Everything that ever went against me was somebody else’s fault. It was never mine.

Now, I have learned that what I think about and how I react to situations is totally in my control and I therefore control them quite well.

Like everyone else, I do have the occasional negative thought and how I deal with these is this: I replace that negative thought with a positive thought. It’s not that hard when you think about it.

Also, I am not perfect and I am guilty of judging people on occasion. Not all the time, but sometimes. When I realise I am doing this though, I stop and try to look at the situation from a different angle. It works wonders, and as time goes on, I find I am less critical than I used to be, so I am getting there!

Well, that’s enough waffling for tonight – it’s nearly my bed time! Night everyone!
