Master Secret 7: Know how to recognize and dismiss negative thinking

“One cannot be prepared for something while secretly believing it will not happen”: Nelson Mandela

A lesson in paradigms we live in a world of duality. The opposites are uncanny and we all seem to live in the middle of them all. Left and right, up and down, black and white, right and wrong, male and female, hot and cold, negative and positive the list goes on. It’s important to note that negativity exists everywhere in all aspects and all dimensions, however, we can buffer our minds to not let it absorb, and from this new standing experience more aligned outcomes.

So how do we handle negativity when it surfaces and what can we do when it’s apparent in our frame of mind or situations around us. If we can get our heads around this concept rather quickly, there’s no success you can’t achieve. Realizing that some people are simply the wrong match for you There are going to be people you meet in life whom you are going to just click with. Be it a sense of synergy, familiarity, or commonality there seems to be an instant positive infusion of powerful energy between you both. You may find people like these at social events, at work, or even through family friends. When meeting these types of people there tends to be in instant rapport from which you’ll want to grow and be with. Likewise, there are going to be people that are going to be on the other end of the scale. It's important to note this early in life and in your career as you’re not going to make everyone happy and it's going to be more than likely you’re going to encounter a personality type that is at odds with your own.

When I find people who I have no synergy with, I have 3 immediate options available:

  • I can move away from them mentally and physically (isolate)
  • I can see if they have anything to teach us about ourselves something in them we need to grow from or understand something in ourselves better. The patient approach well done. Learn and apply
  • We can argue the point to try and convince them of our viewpoint or chosen direction. I have to be right syndrome important to note here, there’s no real correct answer.

Each of us encompasses specific wiring made of up life experiences and inherited thinking which will lead us to lean more towards 1 of the 3 options above. Many of us may have already tried all 3 above alternatives with different people as well. Again there‘s no wrong or right approach, just what you find suits you. Knowing this let's dive into some questions.
