I’ve often thought I was a pretty positive person, with a few brooding tendencies. But been discovering that I may need to work on this. Here are interesting thoughts on how negative thoughts and feelings affect you. straight from Jeffrey Gitomer’s Little Gold Book of Yes! Attitude.

  • The BLOCK positive thought
  • They cause stress. – Think how often you feel under stress… is it your fault or someone elses?
  • They cause worry.
  • They cause illness.
  • They BLOCK creative thought.
  • They cause errors.
  • They reduce productivity.
  • They cause anger. – Anger is a secondary emotion. You always feel something first.
  • They prolong painful situations.
  • They affect the way you listen to others. –  Think of how important that is to your successes.
  • They affect the way you communicate with others.
  • They affect the way you deal with others.
