I’ll be totally straightforward here: negativity sucks. I’m not a fan of it, and I hope you’re not either. We live in a world with so many problems. So many goddamn problems. Why create more problems by being negative? It’s a gigantic waste of time.
I wanted to lead with a few thoughts about negativity because the topic of this post is something I used to be negative about. Like, really negative. So negative, in fact, that I’m absolutely positive it stopped me from progressing in my career. That’s serious stuff.
