The power of Negative Thinking

Almost all of us have heard the power of positive thinking but have heard of the power of negative thinking?

They both are equally powerful but the only difference is the direction it will take to us.

Just the way positive thinking empowers us to reach heights, negative thinking does the same towards depths.

I’ve read a story in a book and I want to share it with you.

There was a man who made his living selling balloon at a fair. He had balloons of many different colors including red, yellow, blue, and green. Whenever business was slow he would release a helium-filled balloon into the air.

When the children saw the balloon go up, they all wanted one. They would come up to him buy a balloon and his sales would go up.

All-day he continued to release a balloon whenever sales were slow. One day the balloon man felt something on his jacket, he turned around and a little boy asked, “If you release a black balloon, will that also fly ?”.

Moved by the boy’s concern, the man replied gently, “son, it is not the color of the balloon, it is what’s inside of them that makes it go up.


If you read carefully the above story, you’ll understand that it’s our thinking, attitude & what’s inside us that will take us upwards or downwards in life.

Attitude and thinking both are the most important things in life, they impact every section of our life. Be it personal, professional life, family, or financial life.

The attitude starts to develop in the childhood years.

The environment at home laid down the foundation as one grows and enters the learning face when he starts to go to school get educated and participate in different activities. The experiences also affect the attitude.

There are many ways we can improve or develop our attitude, some are:-

1. Be a positivity seeker – focus on all the good things in life.

2. Be optimistic – look at all the bright sides of things.

3. Live in the present – the best way to take care of the future is to take care of the present moment.

4. Stay away from negative influences – like alcohol, drugs, toxic people, etc.

5. Always be grateful – learn to say thanks for everything you have.

6. Feed good to your mind – read, listen, and see things that will fill your mind with positive thinking.

So always try to have a good attitude and positive thinking, if you want to go upwards in life.

Be so positive that negative people don’t want to be around you.

    Positive Attitude is everything in itself, you need it just once to start something new.
    In second time, the experience of previous attempt is enough!!πŸ€—πŸ€—
