This is the most common reason most of us drop out of something we’re interested in, we get disappointed, we feel disturbed.
It’s all because of this one reason.
It’s called 5 Positives and 1 Negative.
Do you have any idea what I’m talking about?
Let me explain my perspective on this topic and you let me know whether you agree or not.
Whenever we do something in life, could be w.r.t. anything.
What happens after is the issue.
People meet, people discuss, people share their opinions about that something with you.
Now it always boils down to this very situation.
Whilst sharing their opinions, usually, you’ll get a lot of love, support, positive feedback, which also includes constructive criticism.
You’ll be happy after hearing/reading to all of this.
P. S. This could be face-to-face with people you know, it could be with friends and family, it could be online, on comments or groups, you get the picture.
However, here’s when things take a turn.
Amidst all of this, you get that one negative opinion as well.
Its a part and parcel of the equation.
One negative opinion which revolves around, “Why are you doing this?” “What are you going to get out of this?” “This is not even important” and various such opinions.
These opinions usually take a toll on you.
This is what I’d like to call 5 Positives and 1 Negative.
Where, in every situation, you’ll notice five positive approaches and one negative approach.
And that one negative approach overpowers the entire equation and that’s where you end up focusing.
Not the other 5 or 500 or 5 million positive comments or opinions that you received.
As a usual approach to life, we end up focusing on that one negative, it eats us up.
Why that negative? How can we change that? Was the person right?
And that’s where the problem lies.
That’s what we need to change.
Speak about this issue, make everyone aware and shun that negative voice altogether.
What more can be done?
Well, ultimately, the approach should be to enjoy the process. Enjoy why we are doing that certain something.
Be grateful for all the love and support and criticism, but altogether, do it for yourself, for the love of it.
So, as a result, nothing affects you at all.
