Negativity is an addiction to the bleak shadow that lingers around every human form ... you can transfigure negativity by turning it toward the light of your soul.
JOHN O'DONOHUE, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom
What we focus on, we empower and enlarge. Good multiplies when focused upon. Negativity multiplies when focused upon. The choice is ours: Which do we want more of?
People who project negativity typically have low self-esteem. They feel badly about themselves, and their negativity is simply a reflection of those feelings.
HENDRIE WEISINGER, The Power of Positive Criticism
Negativity determines Being insofar as it situates it in the transcendental space which it has unfolded in order to permit Being to manifest itself there. The entity which appears in this primitive ontological field can never be equivalent to it. Such a field rather surpasses the entity on all sides. This surpassing is so radical that it is nothing more than the dialectical suppression of the entity.
MICHEL HENRY, Essence of Manifestation
Negativity can only feed on negativity.
ELISABETH KUBLER-ROSS, The Tunnel and the Light
It is easier to avoid the effects of others' negativity when we question if an action or attitude is appropriately directed at us. If it isn't, we can choose to sidestep it and let it pass.
SUE PATTON THEOLE, The Woman's Book of Courage
It's the simplest properties that will help you clear yourself of negativity ... The profound power of a simple prayer. The strength of a deep breath. The gentle guidance of good music.
JEFFREY WANDS, The Psychic in You
Sensitive souls draw in the negativity of others because they are so open.
JOHN GRAY, How to Get What You Want and Want What You Have
Today evil spirits are seen as negativity which floats around the Earth in large quantities.
SCOTT CUNNINGHAM, Earth Power
Negativity sucks away energy. If part of the negativity stems from your attitude or perspective, commit yourself at the beginning of each day and each activity to find something positive in yourself and in others around you. If the people around you are negative and you can't change that, either remove yourself from the situation or view it simply as one obstacle you face in pursuing your own potential. Stay focused on your own goals and make the best of the situation.
TERRY ORLICK, Embracing Your Potential
Negativity is expensive. It costs companies millions of dollars each year.
GARY TOPCHIK, Managing Workplace Negativity
All negativity is an illusion created by the limited mind to protect and defend itself.
AMBIKA WAUTERS, Chakras and Their Archetypes
The cycle of God, the good, is broken by a single act of negativity. The cycle of negativity is stopped by choosing the good -- not just once, but again and again until it is goodness that prevails in your life and in our world altogether.
JOHN MORTON, The Blessings Already Are
- If I make dark my countenance,
- I shut my life from happier chance.
ALFRED TENNYSON, The Two Voices
The mind that is too ready at contempt and reprobation is, I may say, as a clenched fist that can give blows, but is shut up from receiving and holding ought that is precious.
One always looking for flaws leaves too little time for construction.
Live or die but don't poison everything.
Nobody can motivate himself in a positive direction by continually using negative words.
JOHN C. MAXWELL, The Difference Maker
The best way of removing negativity is to laugh and be joyous.
