Do you ever “go negative”? Yesterday I went negative. Something turned out other than the way that I thought it should, and I went negative, rather than either trusting that what happened was the best thing for me, or asking what I learned from the experience. Tweaking other possibilities could have also been another promising solution instead of choosing to go negative.
It’s easy to go negative when it comes to money matters. Going negative sounds like:
- I’ll never pay off my debt
- No one is making money in this economy
- I am just grateful to have this job (even though I hate it and I make less than market value.)
Examples of going positive with money matters include:
- I don’t know what good will come from this, but I trust that something will
- How can I use what I learned from this experience to improve?
- What else is possible around this?
- What is working and how can I focus more on that to get the results I want?
When we focus on positive outcomes, we are more likely to get them. It helps us be open to opportunities and have a better life! Are you going positive or negative?
