Toxin 1: Gossip
An old saying goes, “a lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get it’s pants on.” In today’s society, it’s very easy to buy into the “he said/she said” type of discussions without first figuring out if the issue even warrants your opinion. Gossip is a toxin that poisons relationships and a successful life. Stop spreading this toxin by going to the source.
Toxin 2: Negativity
Negativity is dangerous. Why? Because when negativity takes hold, it doesn’t want to let go. Fight this deadly toxin by doing two things:
- Think before you speak. If it’s not a positive comment or constructive criticism, then figure out if you even need to say it.
- Be thankful for all that you have. Simply being more grateful puts you in a perspective to be more positive.
Toxin 3: Complaining/Criticism
Stop this far too familiar toxin by thinking about why you’re complaining in the first place, and then objectively deciding if complaining or criticizing will really help resolve a problem in an optimal way. Instead of complaining or criticizing, which can often lead to hurt feelings, a failure to succeed in goals, and increased negativity, try to figure out a more constructive way to solve whatever issue or problem you’re facing.
