Say “No” To Negativity!

On April 10th, 2012, posted in: BIZ-TIP by 2 Comments

Have you ever met someone who was negative about everything? They were so down on anything you discussed. Nothing you tried to do was good enough for them. No effort was ever sufficient. They always found something that they didn’t like. It’s like they were looking intently for something that wasn’t working just the way they thought it should. To them, everything needed improvement and nothing ever worked out right. They made you want to run, not walk, the other way!

We all have days that don’t go as well as we had hoped they would, but that’s no reason to be negative. A consistent pattern of negativity reflects a person’s character. It often doesn’t take long in a relationship for this trait to surface.

We recently cancelled a contract with a new client before we ever really got started because of the principal contact’s negative attitude. Life is too short to work with people you don’t like and respect. There’s plenty of business out there with wonderful people who appreciate quality, caring service so we say “no” to negativity and those who practice it.

  1. I love this blog post and agree with you. Life is way too short to be dealing with negative nellies when there are so many great people out there who want to make a positive difference in their lives and businesses, despite challenges. I also find that if someone is negative all the time it sets you up for failure working with them, because they will never be happy with the outcome. I have a wonderful group of clients and am so thankful that there is not a negative person among them:)
