Are you positively negative?

Are your words of, ‘inspiration’ like this?

Or are they more like this?

The first message is negative. Yes, it could be looked at as funny… in a self sabotaging and depreciating manner. You’re telling yourself that you are beyond the capacity of self management and basically in need of a babysitter. Are you five? NO! You’re a grown up. If you want to eat crappy food then eat it but be ready to deal with the consequences WITHOUT whining. This is called, ‘negging’.

Negging is a rhetorical strategy whereby a person makes a deliberate backhanded compliment or otherwise insulting remark to another person in order to undermine his or her confidence in a way that gains approval. The term was coined and proscribed by the seduction community.

It may have started in, and become popular with, the ‘seduction community’-ew! But like many bad ideas that turn into a part of our culture, it has become socially acceptable to put one’s-self down. perhaps in a rush to show some sort of humility before someone comes along and cuts us down for standing too tall?

The truth of the matter is that; change, real change is difficult. We need all the help and support we can get. there will be plenty of haters out there ready to tear you down and dance when you fall. Don’t be your own hater. Be disciplined. Fill your life with inspiration. If anyone (only the insecure people will do this) makes fun of you for being positive, brush off their words, hang another quote on your office wall and keep going. They’ll soon be choking on your dust trail as you leave them behind wondering why you’re more successful, fit, and happier than they are.
