Fighting Negativity (Part 1)

by Patrick Liew on July 20, 2011

There was a guy who was about to jump off the Benjamin Sheares Bridge.

Fortunately, a friend happened to pass by and stopped him at the nick of time.

“Why? Why do you want to end your life?”

They discussed for about half an hour.

Finally, both of them jumped off the bridge.

I have told this joke and made many comments about one of the worst diseases in society.

It’s called negativity.

Why do I call negativity the worst disease? Because any other disease can only destroy the body.

Negativity destroys the body, soul and spirit.

Unfortunately, there is a dark cloud of negativity looming over many areas of society. It is almost pervasive in our daily lives.

Negativity can be found in the mass media. It can be found in social media and many other websites on the Internet.

Negativity very often dominates our thoughts, conversations and actions.

Negativity can unconsciously cause a cascading effect.

It affects our well-being. Then, it affects our family, work, team, company and community.

There is a potential tide of negativity that can destroy our lives.

We must turn the tide of negativity and flood our lives with positiveness. I hereby declare a Revolution Against Negativity.

Positiveness starts with me.

How I see the world will oftentimes determine what the world will be to me.

 If I think negatively, I’m inclined to be negative. When I think positively, I will have positive outcomes.

I’m sure you’ve heard, two persons could look out of the same window. One person saw a beautiful moon, the other saw mud.

If you give the same donut to two persons, one saw the doughnut, the other saw the hole.

Two persons were caught in darkness. One complained about the darkness, the other lighted a candle and led people out of darkness.

Which person do you choose to be?

Will you join me to turn the tide against negativity?
