4 Tips to Fight Negative Thinking


I try to be open-minded and to understand other people’s opinions. It also helps to have friends and mentors in the business world who can help with that. When things get tough, it helps to remember that you are not alone – others have been through the same problems, and there is light at the end of the tunnel.

I find that both philosophy and humor help me. They both have the ingenuity to get you out of your funk and offer two different spectrum limits in doing so. Having a good circle of friends and family who will listen to you with pleasure and borrow ideas is also helpful.

I remind myself of the power of gratitude. Sometimes when indifference arises, I give up, take a deep breath, and look back on my family’s appreciation and my ability to help others. It is in this lens of gratitude that I struggle with negative thoughts and maintain the motivation I need to try to make a real difference in the world.

Negative thinking is not a positive attitude. Change your mindset and you can change your attitude and attitude. I tend to look at the positive side of things and view obstacles as a series of fun challenges to navigate and overcome.
