Become Immune To Negativity
I’d like to paint a picture for you. Bear with me as I do as I hope it will help give you a better understanding of how you can achieve your goals.
Imagine two rooms. The first room is full of sick people, everyone has the cold and flu, coughing and sneezing away. When you are taking care of your wellness, through good sleep, quality food, movement and a have a strong immune system you seem to be able to bounce those colds and flu’s away from you and walk out of that room not being affected. However, when you are tired, run down, not eating correctly and overstressed you walk into that room and catch the first virus or flu that hits you.
Now let’s walk into our second room, this room is full of negative people. There’s a negative vibe, negative ideas, discussions, and thoughts all bouncing around from one person to the next. When you walk into that room feeling deflated, exhausted, overwhelmed, stressed and generally lost about what you a doing, you let those thoughts and ideas in that room catch onto you. You settle into that room and you get involved and you hang out there for a long time feeling comfortably distracted from your reality. However, if you have a strong sense of purpose, know what your goals are, where your heading and you work consistently on your mindset, you walk into that room and that negativity can bounce away from you, like those cold and flu in a body that’s well.
Negativity and thoughts are often external. We can catch them from environments in which we place ourselves in. We will always come across those environments as it’s difficult to avoid them completely. However, if you build your physical wellness so it has a strong and resilient immune system, as well as your mental wellness and avoid being drawn into negativity and walking through those sorts of doors as minimally as possible you are setting yourself up for success.
Both mental and physical wellness are a daily practice, consistency and creating environments every day and nurture these things. When we don’t and we dig ourselves into deep holes of unwellness, whether it’s physical or mental, it’s so much harder to climb yourself out when that hole keeps getting bigger.
So how do we build more mindset wellness?
I define happiness as “being content with who you are, what you have and where you are heading”. It’s about being grateful for how far you have come, what you have done and knowing the path you are heading on. Without this clarity, we drift, we wonder, we get frustrated and annoyed with life in general. A clear roadmap, allows us to drive distraction-free and get to our destination and enjoy the journey.
Being positive and grateful isn’t something you do on occasion. If you want to foster that mindset wellness, it’s consistency, working at it like any other muscle and having that on repeat. Creating lifestyle and habits that make that simpler and being really careful about the environments and the people in which you choose to place yourself around consistency. Having strategies in place that can pull you out of trouble quickly and get you back on your path to success.
