Let’s Be Positive
Recently I read an article on being positive. I’ve noticed that people seem to be fascinated by the negative. Reality TV shows are more successful when they pit people against each other, and people like to gossip about sad/unfortunate things that happen to others.
Often when people receive excellent customer service, or really like something they’ve read or watched, they rarely say thank you or let anyone know how much they appreciate their efforts. However, when people are dissatisfied with something, they go out of their way to loudly criticize, complain and let everyone know how unhappy they are.
Why is this? I don’t understand why some people seem happier when they are negatively judging and criticizing then when they are acknowledging and appreciating. I wonder if they forget that in doing so they are hurting actual human beings, who have feelings and usually have good intentions.
I believe that most people are positive and find the good, but for some reason don’t say anything. Maybe they think that others will step up with appreciation, so they don’t need to make the effort. If we all wait for others to give the positive, nobody will do anything, and only the negativity will be heard.
So, this month I’m focusing on finding the good, being appreciative and acknowledging people and their efforts. Actually speaking up, making the phone call, writing the note, posting on social media, and thanking others for what they do.
It’s all about the positive and the good.
How about you?
