Negativity & Positive Clashes

Every individual has a small amount of positive thoughts and a tank full of negative thoughts. Are you the one who experienced the clashes between your negative or positive thought? Probably yes! This clash is very scary and Sabotaging Your Success. We often get scared without even practicing the task and accept our defeat. Do you know why? Just because of our negative thoughts. We are so negative that we cannot see things they are meant to be and take them into a wrong direction. The main reason is “What if” rather than why not. The day you take the things and your life in a positive way, only then you will realize how easy things were and how you were complicating them. So, rather than thinking the negative aspect of a situation, think positive and you will see that it will solve your many problems and open the gateway of success.


Worry and commitment are the opposite side of a coin. If you worry about a certain situation, there would be utmost chances that you fail. Rather than worrying about getting through a certain exam, commit to the process of exam like a scholar.  Let your ideas flow and make it visible to all. If you want to build 6 pack abs, commit then you will eat a healthy diet and departs all the things that are not healthy for you.   Worry obstructs your way to success and you will not get through regardless how easier your ways are. Remember, you have to cultivate the skills as you are not born with it.

There are many people who value other’s opinion, rather than believing in themselves. This is quite a negative trait as we know that the thought process of every person is different. It is not important what we are thinking or behaves, other should be like that. No! This is probably a wrong thought. You cannot rely on other’s opinions and also should not give your opinion when not needed.

Giving and receiving opinion is right when you actually need it, but at the end of the day. Life is yours and so are the decisions. Listen to all, but do things that you feel are good for you! Others do not understand your life your ways of living and so on. They just give opinion either they think they are very smart, or not letting you to climb the ladder of success.

Believe in yourself and you will soon realize that you have broken the ways that were Sabotaging Your Success.
