Eliminate And Accentuate

Mary Poppins said it best. Well, I suppose she didn’t really say it. She sang it instead. 

Eliminate the negative. Accentuate the positive.

I have had to do that lately. My team has lost two of its first four games by blowing fourth quarter leads. Both losses have been heart breaking.

The inevitable has happened. Fans are in an uproar. Some media, who are more fan than journalist, have allowed their emotions to spill over into their work.

Social media has been a mess. Is there criticism to make? Sure, but much of it goes beyond that and demonizes people in ways that exceeds reason.

So what has this guy done? I’ve eliminated the negative. I have reduced the outside clutter from my life that is just going to bring me down, make me mad or stir me up.

Honestly, it isn’t much different than the current presidential race. One candidate zoomed out to a lead by yelling and screaming louder than others in a negative tone.

Jim Rohn said that we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with. If those people are negative, you are going to be negative.

If you spend your time soaking in the negativity of others, whether that be in reality or virtually, you are going to be negative.

If you find yourself in this situation, do something about it. Find yourself a positive friend. Then another and another.

Instead of reading and listening to negativity, fill up on positive messages.

Guess what? Your life will change. You will be happier. The world will be brighter. Life will be more fun.

Eliminate the negative. Accentuate the positive.

    Couldn’t agree more. perhaps there is also another reason why social media holds no charm for me?
